BUT that doesn't change the fact that I don't like that there will be a recap episode... If they already dedicate a whole Episode for that, why do they have to include a mini-recap for every single Episode?
probably for the same reason you just explained, because no recap would have meant even more workload than what they are already doing each ep.

I'm not bothered at all by the recaps. Considering one piece have 500 some eps and each one has a recap as a standard, I think i'm pretty desensitized of this stuff by now.

this episode seems to me just dragged on...
15 minutes of boredom
4 minutes of intelligences
and a few seconds of Sasha sore stomach....

and I wish someone from Support Team stood up said that there Captain left them to die while he escaped.

I'm surprised that not many people mentioned how this series strayed from your usual formula as they didn't tried to fight their way out.

Wait. She was the one doing the narrations?

Besides, I'm glad that Armin eventually grew a pair for himself.

Hmm, the way i saw it was that Eren pretty much had run out of titan power for now. He is in pretty bad shape, pale, nosebleeding, cant even stand straight. You see him grouching most of the episode probably because he is too weak to stand. He really was in no state to continue battling. If Armin hadnt solved the situation peacefully it would have been really bad for out trio.

Nice chara-development episode, but I felt a slight over-dramatization (even though I understand the context). Just a bit.

I don't understand how the scaredy cat commander wouldn't try to keep firing at the first opportunity. It seems like the trio had a ridiculous amount of time to talk about the situation, though I am impressed with Eren's ability to analyse the situation, given how incredibly fucked up he must have been.

Whilst I did feel Armin's final words were a little over dramatic, I think that was more due to the soundtrack than the content. I could at least appreciate the emotional honesty and whilst Armin's internal struggles was fundamentally conventional, it was spiced with a very unconventional situation. I think that's what I like most about the trio. Eren's faith in Armin and devotion to the two. Mikasa's extreme devotion to Eren. Armin's desire to help his friends despite his flaws. It's all very upfront and sincere. I can feel the strong friendship that they have for each other.

Slow-paced episode, but still good. Glad Armin got his chance to shine - I actually got chills during his speech, partly thanks to the great BGM.

Eren's little show left everyone speechless and scared.
Those three sure make a good team.
It's amazing how fear can make people irrational and stupid.
That captain needed a good punch in the face to get his shit together.
Armin was pretty fired up and impressive this time.
I was relieved when the commander stopped the captain.

Spoiler for Slightly Manga Spoiler:
I agree 100%. That would have been a much better way to end it and would have gotten people more hyped up for the next episode. I don't mind a dull episode from time to time cause I know how it is, but at least end a dull one on a high note that gets you really jazzed for the next one!

And so cliffhanger... we meet again. This is becoming quite frequent, don't you think?

Love the stuff. Hate the wait.

Makes me want to stop watching for a while so I can marathon the sh*t out of the anime.

wow! an emotional episode...
it's quite a pity that they don't show any battles again (well, this anime isn't all about war, right?)

I like how they pictured Armin's emotional problem and how Armin finally gain his confidence...
He's so manly...
what he's spouting there is already common sense (yea.. who didn't saw Eren kicked those Titans easily?)

Dot Pixis is the best... I like this dude even since he stopped his chess battle against an aristocrat to protect Trost

Well it sure was diluted this episode but I still liked it a lot.
Araki really knows how to increase the tension and make the viewer feel emotionally involved.

Well I can understand that for some it can be boring the fact that nothing much happened, but on me Araki's style works pretty well.

Nothing forbids you to pretend it's so. The week they'll air the recap you can simply skip it and pretend it didn't exist. It would be the same for you as if the animation studio skipped a week to catch up with their work.

The reason they have to make a recap is because they have contracts with several TV stations that are airing SnK. Those TV stations have all their airing slots preplanned for the whole season and if the animation studio skipped an episode they'd have to fill the hole with something.
The recap episode is simply meant to fill that hole.

Overdramatization and time dilation typical of Araki and many other anime/shows. The actual time passed in the story is less than the length of the episode.

This is nothing, in Captain Tsubasa a football match can last up to 4 or 5 hours if you count the actual time passed in the episodes.

I would say that Pixis was some sort of badass before he became the commander in chief, so he personifies Authority Equals Asskicking.

I'm pretty sure she did, if not I wouldn't bother hearing recaps on each episode

Nope, that is exactly how it's supposed to be with most tv anime out there, long running or not. And it's not like it's the first time something like this happens for non-long running series, it happens regularly in the business. Most recent cases on the top of my head would be the Girls und panzer and E7 Ao tv anime who got their last two episodes delayed for various reasons ... and came back with pretty good quality (amazingly godlike quality for E7). There's also Psycho Pass, anyone who watched it knows what I'm talking about.
Snk itself showed signs of production schedule problem ever since the first episode. Just watch the second PV that was uploaded on the pony canyon anime's youtube channel a week before the first episode aired, and pay attention to the scenes with the colossal titan kicking the walls. You can deduce just from it that they barely finished the first episode in time ... and "finished" isn't even accurate, since all those damn stills obviously aren't there because of the staff's artistic choices.

It makes one wonder if they'll even replace those stills for actual animation scenes once the BDs come rolling in...

Polishing is a given for BD releases, but those stills...
