Oh Hanji you naughty girl.


Anyway, nice episode. So the entire time Levi and his squad were supposed to lure the Female Titan into an ambush where Erwin and the others trap her.

Of course, will they be able to learn her identity?

Rico kind of looks out of place here.

As for the episode, it was quite good and Erwin had a good plan, and he is similar to Pixis in that he is not hesitant in sacrificing men if it aids to realizing the overall goal. However, somebody mentioned the animation, and I have to agree to a certain degree. Especially the scene of the Levi squad riding away looked awkward with the railing there. It just looked bad.

very good episode

I love how they pictured Eren's interaction with Levi's team
what a beautiful interaction... biting their own hands
and Hanji is as amusing as usual

Female titan finally captured.... she looks worried... but I think she will get away soon
things will never going smooth in SnK

Levi's actual approach of "Hey Eren, trust us, we know what we do, so get a grip and ride on" was more effective than "shut up and follow orders" in the end.

It may have been a test as well. Is Eren able to work with the recon corps, or will he always try to get through with what he himself thinks is best?

Its deeper than that. There was no guarantee of the titan not speeding up and squishing them like bugs or the capture going well.

Hanji was already my favorite character in this series, and her happy reactions to the sight of Titan flesh is the reason I like her the most.

Also, in one of those scenes, did anyone get a Gendo Ikari vibe with the way Hanji was sitting?

Normally, usual eyeglasses will fall during the fighting.. so goggles are necessary....

I was kinda annoyed that they went into such a long flash back right in the middle of such a tense moment but it tied into the narrative rather well so I can give credit for that.

But otherwise, whilst it was nice to try and flesh out Eren a bit more, I can't say I was amazed by it. All Eren's really done is go from emotionally reckless to actually listening to other people this time. That's not so much growth as it is going from negative to zero in terms of likeability so he's pretty much right back to square one. Okay, maybe I'm being a bit harsh: Eren is actually pretty cool and to be fair, if there is a giant horrific monster chasing after you like that female titan was, you'd probably want to increase your chances of survival as well and turn into a Titan if you could. But honestly after 19 episodes, I can't say I feel much for Eren, at least not nearly as much as I do for Armin, Mikasa and Jean. For a main character he's just been a bit too passive and reactionary to events around him. He doesn't really shape the story much, despite his attempts at doing so. It's not that different for the other characters either, but they have that leeway since they're not meant to be the focus of the story. And with Armin, I at least feel he's getting somewhere and figuring things out.

Moreover, it would be nice if the story would take everything into account when it's developing Eren's character. We already know he has the ability to place faith his his friends as we saw when he trusted Armin with his life, so I don't really think Eren is as much of a lone wolf as the episode made him out to be.

Animation quality was a bit poor with this episode....probably saving it up for the next few episodes.

That female titan was beyond persistent.
Eren, on the other hand, practically pissed himself out of fear.
He could learn a thing or two from Levi.
Hmmm... interesting new info was released.
All kinds of emotions were flying around.
Looks like he got a bit more accepted by his squad members.
Pretty intense episode!

The difference is, Levi knew there was a plan, and what it was.

It's like the Joker said in Dark Knight - as long as things follow the plan, you can accept all kinds of things. Even the veterans were pissing themselves until Levi reminded them there was a plan. (Even if they didn't know what it was.)

A leader has to be calm, even in desperate times. Some guys like Levi are just made for this. Even if he didn't know about the capture plan, but only received orders, he would have remained calm. Guys with weaker determination would have broken off the plan to save themselves.

Well, Levi's the type to stay calm even if he knows damn well the plan's gone to hell and he has no orders. But I was just pointing out the unfairness of the comparison.

I hope they don't fuck around and cut whoever is inside that female titan out ASAP.

You can see it trying to break free.

To be fair, Eren was contemplating breaking off the plan to save someone else. It was about having enough faith in his superiors to his consider his own comrades as necessary sacrifices to whatever plan Eren can't even be sure his superior has. That's not an easy decision to make and I don't think being calm would necessarily sway you to one side or another. But you certainly need to be calm to make that decision.

So they know that a mole is in their group? It's the only reason i can think of for executing such a scatterbrained mission.

It was outsourced if I'm not wrong.
