That was Armin? LOL! Then again, no one else has blonde hair in the group except for Historia.
To be fair, it's a Wig.

Also. That lady Eren had a vision of. She seems disturbingly similar in appearance to both Eren and Historia. Could it be she's an ancestor to the both of them?
Wait, wait, wait... That lady who looked similar to Historia? "Lady Eren" or Historia? I was surprised to see that coming. Could there be a some kind of a "spiritual" relation between Eren and Christa/Historia? Hmm... I wonder if this lights the shipping candle?

Well, that may not look good for Eren, especially when he gone insane at the second half of the experiment. Not sure how long he could cope up with his titan body, but it looks like his condition is worsen as a titan.

AFAIK, that line "my father, by me" was a mistranslation.

.......hardly.
If anything it indicates the two possibly being related by blood.
Never noticed that the Woman in the Mirror,Eren,Historia,Carla and Rod have the same eyes being the only ones who have these eyes?

Although not romantically, but I'm looking forward to see their relation "spiritually". So there is two possibilities: she was either his "ancestor" or the previous host of the Coordinates, but maybe related to the Reiss family in both ways. It would be a mind-blow if Christa/Historia was turned out to be Eren's cousin or blood relative. *never mind being an incest*
Anyway, once this get animated, we would see what eye color she has, either aquamarine/sky blue or emerald green.

Maybe he just wanted to say, that his father experimented on him, maybe not. We can't really say at this moment, but it doesn't become a mistranslation from this.
Supposedly the proper translation is:

"My Father...."
"....To me...."

instead of some sites going:

"My Father....."
"....by me..."

Large difference cause the latter makes it sounds like Grisha may have been eaten while the former Grisha just did something to Eren.
Quote:
Does she need to be some person from the past?
The whole point of Eren is that he has memories he is not aware of.
He didn't know biting his hand triggers the transformation but just did it and later questioned how he knew that is the method to transform.
Grisha went on how "Their memories will help you" or something like that.

We know that the Coordinate-Ability is some sort of mind-control on Titans, but maybe it's even more. It could be a full telepathy-ability, and the scene Eren was seeing was actually the present time, somewhere in the inner city.
He was trying to think about where his father may have been. What if his father was leading a double life and the person in question is his half-sibling.
Grisha mentioned about "the memories of someone before you will guide you" implied that women he imagined wasn't a flashback but a memory of hers, and that marked these two possibilities: she was either his "ancestor" or the previous host of the Coordinates, but maybe from the Reiss family in both ways.

Perhaps the Coordinates also function as a memory archive.

If the writer didn't rush the manga at the beginning, and planned things out carefully using the first 40-50 chapters, working on character development...and had both Annie and Eren interact more, and learn from one another, AND CONNECT! Then they may have gotten closer, and had both Annie and Eren open up to each others company, there could have been something of a relationship that might have gotten interesting later. Annie didn't just become Eren's teacher, but also became the one person he and she could be opened with, and not hold back! And sparing was their means of communication. Listen...Eren made the impossible and made Annie smile...do you know what that means to a girl? I've never had a girlfriend, but I know this! "Being Polite is so rare these days that it's often confused with flirting"! Annie finally felt appreciated knowing that someone accepted her as a human being...Annie finally started to feel like a girl. and Eren flattered her and showed a sense of respect. Yes Eren was fascinated by Annie's techniques, and Annie even offered to teach him some more, to which he gladly accepted! But relationship are built where there's sparks...and there definitely were some sparks....you could definitely feel the sexual tension between their sparring. And Eren also showed a sense of flattery by utilizing one of Annie's techniques when he floored Jean...did you see the look Annie had in her face? Annie probably thought, he was paying attention to me, and quickly Annie paid attention to Eren, and continued to teach him some more. Annie was practically telling Eren to realise that she was a frail, and weak...and Annie used her body as a representation in their sparing. The keywords being "Frail" and "Weak" meant that though Annie was a girl she had feelings too! But despite Eren being dense headed, he still didn't know how to talk to girls, though they were sparing Annie was teaching Eren how to fight! Annie wasn't just teaching Eren how to fight...but to also how to read a girls emotions, and also how to talk to girls.

Reiner acted as more like a big brother to Eren, always joking around acting like family to Eren, pushing him to do better...of course both Reiner and Eren became close in their 3 years of training. And yes I guess Eren did respect both Reiner and Annie! Afterall it's a Titan shifter thing...a weird Titan connection. Even I'm learning about this concept....

I don't trust the Survey Corps, The Military Police Brigade or the Garrison, and their malevolent manipulative ways. Erwin probably stepped down just so he can work on the inside and manipulate the Corps behind the scenes, and there's definitely something up with him, and Rivalie's team!!!!! I don't trust them at all. Their use of experimentation on Titans to show how they work, was probably a reason for them to learn how to control and use them as tools...who know what would have happened if the two titans that were captured, and whose bodies have been experimented on, would have revealed everything about how they worked...which is why Annie killed them so their secrets would go down to the graves. Imagine what the Science department would have done if they found out their secrets? They would have used it to turn people into Titans and use them as tools in battles. Eren was being experimented on and is still is by the Survey Corps, just doing it with a false sense choice.

And what's with those Titans in those walls? Why are they there? And who are they?

Remember Annie never had a choice or a decision of what went on in her life, and was forced to go on a mission and capture Eren. The Survey Corps were in the way, she was just pushing them away to clear a path to get to Eren" But her size made it difficult, and her Titan form was there to put fear into them, so they would run away. But when attacked! Annie retaliated, and they would have killed her if she didn't. She was defending herself...and I bet you Annie never meant to kill them at all.... it's just her size made it difficult to maneuver in that enclosed space. Imagine running in her Titan form? Also why would Annie cry tears for no apparent reason? It took Levi by surprise to see that coming from the female Titan at the time...because crying is a form of guilty conscience and also a human characteristic.

Yes Eren felt betrayed, but the first thing Eren should have done was go straight to her personally, and spoke to her himself! To hear the story from her point of view...before setting her up for an Ambush! And this was Eren's first mistake. Maybe Annie would have explained it to him of her situation and Eren would then make up his own mind...but he went along with the Ambush, and I can see that though he was preparing her for the fall...he was still fighting to prove her innocence...and if he did care then Eren would have fought back to protest her innocence. If anything Eren, Mikasa and Armin set her up, and Annie felt betrayed and her feelings were hurt...if anything Annie was betrayed by the very people she put her trust on. Eren was filled with a horror of despair and disbelief, and guilt too, not having proving Annies innocence in proving everyone wrong about her. Eren said " There's still a chance you're an idiot, whose only going through with this because, you have a shitty sense of humor", "You can prove yourself just by going underground", "So come down here and prove it" still pleading to prove her innocent, but Annie knew she was sold out...So turning into her Titan form was a way for her to say "Fine you take me down, then I'm taking you all with me". And Eren may have been betrayed after witnessing Annie's Titan form, and realised coming to grips with the reality of the story, he still harboured no Ill will, and after he finally turned and fought her, Eren still wanted to know why Annie would do this. As I said in my previous post...even if Annie explained! Eren still wouldn't comprehend her reasons. Annie wanted to escape because they were going to kill her, and even after she was caught, having herself be encased in her crystal meant that, they wouldn't get through to her. After all at the end of the day...Annie was the one betrayed....and what hurt her most, was it was Eren that betrayed her even more. It's Erens turn to win her trust now, because I wouldn't trust him after offering him my techniques, train him, nurture him, educate him, respect him. I guess her father Leonhardt snr was right..."Even if the world turned on her and hated her, Annie would always know that her dad would always be by her side".

Actually Eren caused more deaths the time he fought Annie in her Titan form in Trost...I mean did you see the look in Annie's face when she crashed through the church! Annie was in shock to have realised that she was in the centre of yet more killed innocent lives.

Interesting how even after Annie was caught, and crystallised! She's still helping Eren.

Annie may have been a monster, but she proved every human to be more of a monster than she was.....her only regret was that she trusted too much, and that her kindness was used against her...Annie's more human than any of her friends were.

In my opinion Annie's the real hero.

As for Mikasa.....well........hmmmmmmmmmm I still like her but damn it she's so damn aggravating, frustrating that she's annoying. I don't hate her...just wish she wasn't so clingy, and controlling.

All this justification for Annie seems quite wrong. You forgot other characters when writing this and create an imaginative universe where just Eren, Annie really exist and the rest of the world is just full of selfish and evil people. e.g. you completely forgot to mention Armin in any way. He did find out about Annie being the FT after all. If Eren warned Annie he would instead betray all his own comrades. Why are you putting all the responsibility on Eren? You say "Annie had a bad childhood and could not be held responsible for her actions". Surprise: Eren also had a bad childhood. He saw a titan devour his mother and this only happeneed because RBA invaded Shinganshina (and his father just disappeard as well). Also Annie violently tried to abduce Eren against his will, in order to "help" the ones, who whiped out 1/3rd of his known world and caused the death of his mother. And you expect him to side with her? That sounds ridiculous.

This seems more like you try to push Eren x Annie and try to find excuses for Annie so that they can live their (non-existing) love relationship to the fullest.

And regarding the humans being evil: It does not justificate being evil too. Eren avoided to be dissected by the MP, so there seem to be people that really focus on survival and not just on their selfish goals. So if RBA actually succeeded, those would simply become "collateral damage" while Eren would be possibly imprisoned in the "Warriors' village"? Does not seem like a great idea to me.

Don't try to make your point stronger by splitting half of the chapter into single page links (they will be removed soon anyway, you really should follow the forum rules)

Aside from that, what you say is certainly not wrong, however I don't see what your point is. That part of the story was obviously to show what foolishness humans can reach because of fear and/or ignorance. Yes, Eren lives and tries to protects a world where the government sends the Central Branch of the MP to eliminate "unwanted" people, or people that have a high risk of telling things that they are not supposed to tell. And it is also a world that would have discarded the great weapon that Eren was simply because of fear and ignorance. Annie realizes this. And? Where she comes from, people send "warrior children" to commit genocide on another civilisation and that is better? Or what is it?

As I said I still don't understand what you wanted to convey with that last post aside from Annie being supposedly conscious about the world. But even then Annie is still continueing the "mission" she was sent for and what's even worse she goes on a killing spree against the few people who she knows may cause some kind of change in that rotten world. Instead of doing damage to the military police, or attacking the government of the walls, she instead attacks the few people she knows, who were able to get past the illusion of safety. Really, THAT seems much more like a contradiction to me.

I haven't figured out how to attach photo's so they can be viewed as spoiler, so I don't know how to do that yet...I'm new to this forum, so I haven't really looked at the rules and regulation of how this forum runs! But I'll make sure that I take a look at them later, and I'll learn how to attach photo's so there wouldn't be any links.

As I said before "The mind is blind if the eyes cannot see"

If you think Annie had malevolent intentions in killing innocent people...then you have no idea what the concept of evil is, or paying attention to who the really mastermind is behind this.

I suggest you go back to reading the whole chapter again, and this time pay attention. This time look closer at the words that have been used...words have meaning behind them, and you're not paying close attention to the content of the context.

You believe Annie did Evil counts such as murder? Well what about the 3 corps? Do you think they're all innocent? Hell no.....Mikasa has a more murderous look then Annie, and Armin is a manipulative little prick.

As I said before “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”

I'm going to give you a very interesting quote that Uchiha Itachi said...

Pay attention to his words

"People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"? Merely vague concepts ... their "reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?"

You are judging people based on appearance. Maybe you should look at their actions more? And once again: What. Is. Your. Point?
If you want to say that a lot of wall-humans are worse or "more evil" than Annie, then I do agree, however Annie is still not a pure person.
And Mikasa just does what she does because Eren is her "lifeline". Armin does things with survival in mind, i.e. "they or us". And he also wants to be freed from the walls to explore the outside world.
What about Annies motives? No idea, but appearantly she can kill anyone without hesitation, who she has no personal attachment to.

I ask once more: "What is your point"? Get to the point already!

No one sold Annie out, until she almost kidnapped Eren. She could have simply stopped working for the Warrior Tribe and simply go along with the others, but instead she decided to be a monster that stole even more of people who Eren got attached to (Levi's team). Your justifications are really biased... and I think I finally get your "point". So basically you want to convince everyone that Annie was just acting out of "self defense" after she was betrayed. But as I already pointed out that logic is wrong. She already did so much damage to her old comrades that even Armin who really seemed to like her felt betrayed by her actions.

i.e. Annie betrayed her comrades, not the other way around. While revenge would may have been involved as well, it was clear that Annie's actions would endanger more lives over time. As she was clearly hostile against the wall-humans, they could choose between "being nice to a broken girl by dying" or "to elminate the threat of a very dangerous enemy".

You should really stop watching anime where the protagonists are some overidealistic(, masochistic and spineless) people who think they can save everyone.

Also... you should really stop posting these links. If a mod sees that you will be banned on the spot.

As I said "the eyes are useless if the mind is blind"...you're basing your opinion on logic alone, sometimes you have to cast aside logic, and do what feels right, even if it means standing alone...you know betrayal is a two ways streak.

Human minds really are primitive.

Annie did absolutely nothing to deserve mercy. Eren pointed it out when he fought against Reiner "they were foolish to have trained him". Annie was a spy and any deception done to her, she did to others as well, moreover she even was the first one to fool the others, killing many of their comrades.

Please, just stop it. You are completely biased toward an ErenxAnnie shipping. You sound like you would probably even forgive Rachel for what she did in Tower of God.

While she does seem cold she clearly is not emotionless. And she is distant for obvious reasons, would you befriend those you might kill? In all honesty the fact that Reiner and Bertholdt act all buddy buddy while killing people behind their backs seems far more cruel then ignoring them from the start.

Since everyone puts so much trust in Armin's words, he is the one who called her a good person and said that she doesn't want them to go to front lines. Why? Because she would have to kill them. She didn't want it.

However, she cares. She allowed Eren to get close and taught him how to fight. One of the reasons why he is still alive to be honest.
She didn't kill Armin because she cares. If she didn't he would be dead and she would not be captured.

She is told by her father to treat whole world as enemy and that's what she does, she tries to distance herself from everyone but fails and starts to care. She calls herself a failure of a warrior mostly probably because of that.

Despite being strong, she calls herself weak. Why?

She calls herself a bad person, she admits that she is bad yet when Armin calls her good, she wants to cling onto it.

She was sent on a secret mission as a spy and hides some big secret. She is the most developed Titan to boot!

What is this crystal thing? Where did she learn to do that?

Going by last chapter, the 3 shifters are close friends yet they kept a façade of not caring.

I'm sorry but Annie has far more things going for her than you think.

Who is Petra? A good natured girl with a crush on Levi who survived several years and killed quiet a bit of titans. That's it. We never even properly saw her in action nor is there anything new to learn about her.

If you only see Annie as uncaring, cold person you clearly did not pay attention nor do you want to.
My friend I appreciate everything you wrote, and to tell you the truth...I agree with you on all accounts! But some people here follow a heard mentality...when pressed with new information that can effect their views, they turn into savages and assume the worst.

Frans Fanon said...

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are
presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new
evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is
extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it
is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,
ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”

This is what most of these people in this Forum have, and they're really biased in their truth, they only believe that since Annie killed him and killed her, and then killed them that it automatically can be assumed that it's the truth....

However..."The eyes are useless if the mind is blind"

Everyone makes mistakes so don't come out pointing out Annie's mistakes before these people point fingers at Annie, they should first look at the actions of others, and looked at themselves in the mirror...

She's not perfect, because she's flawed in her actions.

The problem with Annie is that she cares too much...and that's her greatest attribute, and it's what makes her seem so human.

The whole purpose of this manga was to show the flaws of the human race, and Annie showed her flaws...and that's what makes her perfect. She's beautiful because of her frailty, her own flaws, her own choices...and we're all flawed, but a lot of the time Annie teaches other to do better.

To tell you the truth none of what she did was her fault, and Annie doesn't deserve to have people torture her, and look at her as some sort of a monster...some of her actions may have come out as selfish, but most of her actions were all selfless. Annie deserves Peace damn it after all the hardship she had to endure in her life..I know she's not real but she's real to me and it means a lot to me that Annie finds peace, and I believe the only person who can offer her that peace is Eren...she so deserves someone who can show her some appreciation, compassion, serenity, Love above all else. You have no idea what it's like to be alone...and she's lonely! Oh great now my heart is stuck in my throat.

I really, really love this show, and it's all because of Annie...my god she's the reason why I took the time to watch the damn show, and the only one I looked forward to seeing. Yes my god I do ship the relationship of Annie and Eren being made a couple, because I know they work so well.

People only see saviours as being human, but not all humans are monsters...let me share a quote from Joker in Dark Knight he said...

"We stopped checking monsters in our bed when we realized its inside of us"

Annie knows what she is, but hates being what she is...she loathes being around Reiner and Bertholt, because being around them reminds her of what she is. And she is worth so much more...she even decided to keep quiet when Armin asked her for help to smuggle Eren out of the city...only to be manipulate by Armin into an organized ambush, to trap her underground. Mikasa is an overstatement in the department of hating Annie's guts...she hates her because she got beaten by Annie in their bout! But Mikasa is an arrogant and she's a selfish moron! She's the true cold hearted one, remember what she said to Krista...just as Mikasa was about to slice Ymir? She literally and practically said that she didn't even have a heart...and was willing to slice through Krista to get to Ymir.

Remember her saying how she grew tired of bored of talk...and was willing to rush to kill Annie, just to get it over and done with, without listening to her side of the story. Not to mention her "Fall" comment seemed like she was enjoying seeing people fall...at their expense.

Mikasa...Now that's the true face of a killer.

Mikasa makes Azula from Avatar the last Aribender look like a saint.

I love that Eren was the only one fighting to prove her innocence, albeit not comprehending the meaning behind her words...stating that she's only going through with this charade simply because she had an idiotic sense of humor...but ultimately despite betraying Annie a little...I believe he still cared for her..after all he was the one who fought her so he can find out why?

Eren was the only one that changed Annie, and Annie educated and trained Eren making him stronger...so they compliment each other! I'm a guy and sometimes I turn into a girl when I read the pages when they interact with each other...they're so adorable, yet they're still kids...which gives them time to grow.

But what about the 3 Branch Corps? Are they all innocent? Hell no...They're a bunch of hypocrites and manipulators...not to mention bullies. Levi's actions by making Eren voiceless is an example of that, not to mention how Levi's squad treated Eren when he accidentally, and unwillingly transformed in front. I find those people to be despicable and arrogant.

Uchiha Itachi said

"People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"? Merely vague concepts ... their "reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?"

I just can't hate her...I've tried to but it only made me love her even more.

I love tat you posted this message, and I love you even more because you empathize with Annie...so you have my respect.

I'm sorry HOLLOW08, but I can't take anything you write seriously. You're babbling nonsense, repeating over and over the same 3 quotes as if they're some kind of ultimate truth, you turn Annie into an angel with every sentence, while demonizing everyone around her. You clearly can't think objectively and you're extremely biased with ErenxAnnie shipping.
Annie IS a complex character, yes. She ISN'T rotten to the core and 100% evil, yes. But she's not all angel, butterflies and icecream either. She MASSACRED people she didn't have to and seemed to enjoy it. You said she didn't kill Armin, because she cares and it instantly makes her a good-hearted, innocent girl that everyone picks on... but you forget that right after that she smashed countless of other soldiers, swinged one on the ropes like a yoyo, then kicked a man on a horse like a football. That is not only killing, that's PLAYING. She played around and clearly enjoyed it. So don't tell me she's all nice and dandy, she has some problems too.
Take off your Annie-colored glasses and look at her objectively. She's no different from Reiner and Bertholt. They all have reasons for their actions I bet, but that doesn't excuse their actions - they do have a lot of empation while in human form, yes, but as soon as they turn into Titans, they're a lot like Eren - frenzied, focused on their bloodlust, desire do destroy and accomplish their mission at all costs, no matter how many people around them die in the process. Only when they're back to their human selves their conscience kicks in.
