A warning or a test. He may have wanted to see how Eren would react.

Kind of late but how did so many people manage to die when they were baiting the Titans away from Eren in Trost? It showed that people were just hanging off the wall well out of the Titans reaches and it seemed easy enough.

I can understand all the people dying in the final push as Eren was sealing the gate but how did so many die just baiting the titans?

I would assume they had to be low enough so the titans would actually take notice of them and alot weren't able to get higher again in time.
At least that's what I'd say happened

There were actually people on the ground too during the first part of the operatoon. This was done to ensure most of the Titans took the bait as there were plenty of Deivant types that would have ignored the troops on the walls and headed straight for Eren and co.

I must have missed that detail, thanks.

Does anyone have a tinmeline of the show thus far?

I'm not really concerned with the current events but how many days/ hours passed from the time the Giant Titan broke the Trost wall to the moment Eren sealed the hole? It seems like was less than a day but that doesn't seem right.

EDIT: I also don't like the sudden timidness that Eren has. He just had pure hatred for titans before but now it seems to have tapered off. When he asked Hanji how can she be so calm and casual around titans, I was expecting him to go off on her about not taking them seriously. The way he yelled at that guy when he was a kid.

^But Hanji is taking the titan threat seriously, she's just approaching it from a different perspective. She's completely different from the lazy garrison guys.

Having the Trost battle span over a month of real time has messed up my perception of its length, but it seemed like only one day, from sunrise to sunset... if night had fallen, the humans should have had an easier time dealing with the Titans.

Looking at the episode summaries, it is one daylight day... with two diversions for flashbacks and head games, and the bit with the Recon Corps outside happening concurrently with the main attack.

Ep.15

Ok it seems the direction of Levi is being more of a comedy act for a serious character that was once a thug. Cleaning...seriously, I couldn't stop laughing when I saw him in his cleaning outfit. Also Hanji's antics with the Titan's are so entertaining, starting to like her more now. Also no Mikasa or Armin Hmm...? Kinda fishy....Either way this is a very good episode to "get to know your new team" and a good setup for the next episode with a mystery Titan killer/s

8/10

You have to realize Eren get on well with academic type like Armin.

Eren wants to explore the world. Science in just another avenue for that. Remember he is the son of a doctor.

He realizes that his current society's taboos caged the human race's progress. He can see that brand of stupid in the bullies he used to fight and Wallists.

Hanji's scientific approach is refreshing that it allows him to understand his enemy and his own capabilities.

So is my moral queasiness about Hanji's "scientific approach" a deliberate move on the part of the author? Because even if the Titans are only instinctual brutes, the amount of stabbing going on reminds me of things that happened both recently and not so recently...

I think it's logical. It's not like they're "normal" animals where it's relatively easy to see the weak points even after they're dead.

The method makes some sense in context, but my reaction is more from the viewer's perspective of seeing things that look human get variously tortured for science. Of course, this is on top of already seeing people get dismembered and eaten by other fifty-foot-tall people.

The people-ish-ness of the Titans just is a lot more direct than, say, the whalesquid problem in Suisei no Gargantia.

The Don't-Mention-the-War interpretation of this thinks that it'll just give more fodder to the people who were saying that the series is a thinly-veiled commentary on World War II. It's a far more flexible allegory than just that, but since that reactionary interpretation has already happened, this scene didn't help much.

I think Hanji is ultra Sadist...

STAB STAB, you're in so much pain, STAB STAB...

"I accidentally kill them by trying to cut their head off"

ok...

If you cut the titan's head off, there is a high chance that you also cut at the titan's "achilles heel".

Surely blowing the head/neck up with cannon fire would also be as affect as cutting the back on the neck?

I guess it depends on "how much" you manage to blast off.

By stabbing it's eye with a hot iron rod :P while crying :3. Couldn't they create a cannon that shoots out spining blades?_? Wouldn't that be of more use then a cannon ball?
