Hopefully it'll pick up in an episode or two, then. But no excuse for bad intro music Disapproving

So, based on this season's intro, this is a gentle, melancholy show about friendship and growing up hopeful in spite of past tragedies. And their school has really weird uniforms. Right? Uh-oh

Also, the art seems off somehow.

Spoiler:
Best bit: "Sasha, what did you just put in your bag?" "Nothing bread-related."
Worst bit: they pulled Eren's fucking face off including an eye trying to get him out of his failure titan, so at least this show's still gruesome, I guess? Shrug

Also, this serial killer Kenny dude seems way too over the top.

S3E2/Ep 39

Spoiler:

- Oh man, animation at the start
- I forget if I've thought of this or theorized this before, but I wonder if the Walls were pre-built and then the Titans were let loose upon the rest of the world just so the people inside the inner-walls could lord over the remains of humanity.
- Goddddd, the action/animation where Levi's swinging around <3
- (And he's still injured btw, this is Levi at less than 100%)
- OH SHIT ONE GRAZED HIM
- Annnnd Kenny makes his entrance like a huge moron Laughing
- Oh, I guess Kenny's part of the Military Police now after killing the shit out of them before
- Turns the bottle so he can see Kenny's reflection, this guy
- Shotgun/rifle blasttttt
- Did he just fucking put one of his spider-man hooks in that guy's head and then use him as human shield? Shiny/thrilled
- Oh my god Levi is next-level with this shit
- "If you get the chance to kill, do it" Mikasa has no problem with it Laughing
- WHOOPS KILLED JEAN
- Erwin's planning to overthrow everything Shiny/thrilled
- Oops, did Armin end up killing her to save Jean?
- Oh man, the other woman didn't want to shoot either :/
- Levi telling him to embrace being a murderer x)
- Oh good, some of the old Attack on Titan music is back Nod
- Got themselves some MPs
- "I'm a novice at human torture, so please bear with me." Uh-oh
- And Levi forgot to ask questions, what a bunch of fucking sadists
- Oh man, they're making him read a note that makes it sound like he'd already confessed just to get him to actually tell them what they want to know
- "True" royal family?
- Oh shit, that outro, they snuck some of the german power rock into the creepy-outro Shiny/thrilled

That was better Shiny/thrilled

S3E2/E39

Spoiler:

-this song would be okay for a different show, I guess, but man, it bugs me in this show, where's my rage and heroic resolve?
-Web-slinging vertical maneuvering fights! Shiny/thrilled And Levi is such a fucking badass
-"*sob* Welcome to my establishment!" Laughing
-I find Kenny way too over-the-top for this show, it just comes off as silly when it should be cool
-the slow-motion chair falling and water spilling while Levi crouches motionless
-The wine bottle reflection and he fucking backwards shot blasts Kenny right in the chest Shiny/thrilled
-YES! Running the guy on the roof through with his grappling hook then using his body as a shield while he flies through!!! Shiny/thrilled Shiny/thrilled Shiny/thrilled
-Can the rest of the season just be Levi swinging around fighting stuff? And maybe Mikasa too. And that fight between Annie and Mikasa we never got to see. But mostly Levi!
-Jean hesitates on killing a human and hOLY FUCK I think he's dead
-this conspiracy goes all the way to the top (is there ever a conspiracy that doesn't Uh-oh)
-Woah, Arminkilled the woman gunning for Jean. It's kind of sweet that ready-to-murder-at-a-moment's-notice Mikasa tries to comfort Armin on his first kill, cold-blooded as she is
-Levi has to physically restrain Mikasa from chasing, I'm surprised he didn't have to knock her out altogether
-Armin thinks the woman he killed was probably more human than he is, that's a hell of a thing to think :/
-getting the captured guy to join forces because he cares about his employees and his city, nice to see some semi-decent humans beings outside the Scouts in this hell-hole country
-"YOU SHOULD KNOW I'M ALSO A NOVICE AT HUMAN TORTURE, SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME!" rofl
-the group just sitting at the table, heads bowed, talking in whispers over the sound of torture from the other room
-"We're not good people anymore."
-When the guy being tortured's talking about the people he's erased and it shows a woman with a knife at her throat, that looks like Christoria standing there watching, I guess that was her mom
-he believes what they did was right but still wants them to go ahead and torture him to death now that he knows how much it hurts, this season's jumping straight into greyer morality, if they can pull it off, this'll be good
-They make one of his men say he's already spilled all he knows, doesn't care about their cause, hates Sannes and wants them to kill him already, in earshot, that's a smart but fucking cold angle to take
-Christoria's the true heir to the throne
-So long, semi-principled merchant
-the ending music is more like it!

It's a shame Christoria's not a better-developed character, since it seems like so much is going to be revolving around her

WAY better!

S3E3/E40
Spoiler:

-Little Christoria tries to hug her mom just to see what happens, gets thrown across the room, and she's happy because it's more than she's ever gotten from her before, and the first thing she says to her is that she wishes she'd killed her, they're really piling on the angst here
-is that that Kenny dude?
-and then both her parents deny their connection to her, mom says she wished she'd never had her (again, so that's her first, last and only words to her) and gets killed before her eyes. I feel like this show goes too over-the-top in trying to make things so tragic that it lands up feeling adolescent and making me feel less about it, especially since this show's not the strongest on character development, so it feels like they think angst is a quick fix to that. The awfulness of the Titan situation works well enough to make you care what happens in place of great characterization, but trying to do that with a less unique and visceral story like family angst doesn't work as well.
-well, at least her dad saves her and gives her a hug, that's practically Parent of the Year by these standards Wink
-What the fuck is that orthodontic-looking tooth-file muzzle thing?? How does it even work? Also, couldn't Eren just transform by biting his cheek?
-Wow, Hange really destroyed that dude. Where did she learn to torture like this? Is she just a natural?? Uh-oh
-"when one's role's done, another steps in to start the act again"
-tears running down his face, he wishes her good luck, this is getting interesting
-she throws the furniture around and then pretends she was just smashing a cockroach. Not sure torture+pretend everything's fine is sitting too well with her :/
-if a titan eats a titan in human form, they get their powers?! So Eren's extra-tasty, Except, how was he able to rage his way out of the first Titan, then? Did he turn before he was far enough into being eaten?
-overthrow the government?! They've been playing their cards pretty close to their chest till now, or else they've been moving fast.
-Pixis is casually down with overthrowing the government too
-uh-oh, Erwin sounds like he's going out there with full expectation of being executed Sad
-scouts being rounded up
-Reeves is that asshole rich guy from the first episode? That's kind of a cute little callback
-Erwin promises his grieving relatives who think he's the murderer, that he'll avenge him. Not a bad move in terms of planting a little doubt in peoples' minds who's the bad guys.
-yiiiikes, his father was killed for having theories that the government was creating false history, even though it seems like it was just speculation without any particular classified info or anything, I'm voting they make the government overthrow bloody as fuck.
-the government had the power to alter people's memories?? If it's true, that'd explain why only 100 years created such a massive lack of historical knowledge, I'd thought it was just the author being sloppy! Sorry, author-kun!
-not a great likeness of Levi, but they got his expression right Laughing
-In hiding and being hunted, add in some gear fights like last week and this could be awesome!

Spoiler:

TBH, was a lot of waiting around for something to happen and not really anything did, except a bunch of small convenient things that let the Scouts seemingly accomplish their goals (Hitch and Marlow don't shoot first, Hitch and Marlow somehow believe Levi, Hange rescues the boss' son, the boss' son gets them to talk instead of getting shot etc etc etc)

Erwin is so gonna be dead next ep tho isn't he Sad

S3E4/41
Spoiler:

-Annie's former roomie blames the Scouts for her disappearance
-Peaure and Dawk, Werel is missing so many good names
-the press keeps quiet about the Interior Police and their new human-hunting gear
-Hange in the nick of time
-Flegel Laughing
-Yelling on the rooftops, Hange might not be too cut out for secret operations Uh-oh
-"Defeat is all the Scout Regiment has ever known," she says confidently
-Hitch rofl
-Woah, that look on Jean's face when he says he's going to kill them, did he just completely snap from the guilt of not killing that woman a few episodes ago or what? Shudder
-"who in their right mind would cut their hair like that" rofl
-I'm still not convinced he was just testing them, he looked pretty into what he was saying, I'm kind of wondering if he's going to be looking for a chance to get bloodthirsty and make up for failing before.
-Also, Marco might have passed the test (wait, wasn't there a dude named Marco in the original squad too who got eaten, don't confuse me with same-name people!??), but Hitch didn't, why are they trusting her too, seems a little easy?
-Secret police dude on the ground sobbing, everyone's really cracking up this episode
-That drop-from-the-sky attack Shiny/thrilled
-Hange freaking out from hurting her hand punching Laughing
-Setting it up for townspeople to overhear the truth, this seems a little obvious and over-easy
-Flegel sits on the interior police dude and dramatically promises to look out for the townspeople Laughing
-Erwin on the noose Sad
-That little move of Levi's eyebrows when the guy he's interrogating mentions Kenny, it's almost a facial expression!
-"When the time comes, I'll only watch. It's up to you to decide, you and them."

Ep 42

Spoiler:

- Balls on Erwin to tell the royals to their face about stuff
- And yeah, as soon as the wall-breach came up, I knew there was a coup incoming
- So huh, Christoria is the "vessel" and Titans gain powers from other Titans by eating them. And Reiss family was killed in a chapel fire, except maybe it was a Titan exploding out. And then we get Eren imagining himself as a woman brushing his hair. So maybe Eren was a Reiss, he was the Titan that exploded out, he ate his royal siblings/family and then his "dad" found him and somehow controlled his power?
- Though, whatever this case, fuck off and do what you're trying to do already. If this was a 12 ep season it's halfway and we've had like one significant action sequence and seen NO titans.

S3E5/E42
Spoiler:

-Even though it belongs on a totally different show, the intro song is starting to grow on me a little Lurking/sketchy
-it might not be titans that breach Wall Sina, he's doing a great job of painting a picture of why they need the Scouts, good speech, top marks, Erwin!
-I've forgotten who the scruffy guy who seems to be worried about Erwin is Uh-oh
-"We've already found the power, all that's left is to bide our time till the vessel takes it?" Does that mean they want Christoria to be a titan and eat Eren?
-whew, the wall breach was just a lie to expose the nobles' to the troops, I was a little worried that Erwin legitimately had the power to schedule titan attacks Laughing
-"I forgot to mention one thing, I'm not aligned with you either," go Pixis!
-IT'S A FUCKING COUP! Shiny/thrilled
-the king has no idea what's going on Laughing
-"I managed to kill the three people you loaned me, whoops" rofl
-Erwin's deeply angsting about whether he did the right thing but the other guy's just like "man, I hated those guys" Laughing
-Eren must have eaten someone really delicious powerful back in the day. Maybe this is what his father was doing, developing new kinds of forbidden baby food.

Agreed, conspiracies and mysteries are all well and good, but we've been seriously lacking in action. Also, the coup was kind of too easy in the end.

S3E6/E43

Spoiler:

-Historia came around to her dad's side of things awfully quickly
-Eren's kid-titan kind of made me laugh Uh-oh
-he ate his dad as a kid?? And thus has his memories, I guess. But then who was the dad we saw at the beginning of the series, who gave him the key?
-Oh look, Christoria didn't actually have a past of total isolation and cruelty, it was just angst for angst's sake
-Kisses of amnesia?
-I'm feeling pretty impatient with all this, Historia's not a well-developed enough or interesting enough character that I deeply care about her memories and feelings about her past, especially when it's telling us about it instead of following up on the way more interesting revelation we just got about Eren. Who I'm also not that personally interested in but at least it's closer to answering some specific questions we already have instead of just being like "wooo, these mysteries are more mysterious than you thought" and expecting you to care.
-oh man, Eren ate the sister, didn't he, that's going to be super-awkward
-wait, no, his father did it, that's fine then Shrug
-Woah, that's not beast-titan is it?? That dude was more animal-like than this, right, so Eren's dad is just a particularly hairy titan, and if so why did he grow a beard in becoming a titan?? (important questions! Grin ) And how was he still around after Eren ate him???
-making us watch him biting off her head Ewwww!
-what the fuck/rofl/no maybe just wtf @ the fake king's punishment that garrison head guy spent a decade thinking up, is this his really specific fetish or what?
-Wait, if the Reiss bloodline is immune to the memory control effect and Christoria's a Reiss, why was her half-sister able to wipe her memory??
-Also, why is Pixis talking like the Reiss family is going to return things to the fake king, up till now hadn't they been planning to give Reiss dude back the throne as the true king? Wasn't that half the point of their revolt?
-Pixis thinks Erwin was motivated purely by saving himself and didn't care what's best for humanity? Where's he getting that from, I don't recall Erwin doing anything to indicate that? I feel like I've missed an episode in the revolution plotline or something.
-Kenny's related to Mikasa? That's kind of random, I guess being a terrifying badass runs in the family.
-if they're implying a supernatural power awakened in Mikasa that night Eren convinced her to fight her family's murderers, that seems like a bit of a cheat to only show that now, they gave us a pretty good look at the scene then to now be saying "oh yeah, you just didn't notice but she crushed the knife-handle with super-strength." Maybe it's a different event?
-In general all this bloodlines and powers stuff is feeling pretty cheesy to me, and we're drowning in flashbacks/explanation scenes. They sold us on "a few brave humans take on a horrifying and almost hopelessly overwhelming force with cool tactics and badassery, but they've just gotten a shocking new weapon in the fight...?" And at this point we're getting basically none of that.
-Holy fuck, please give us the fight scene you're promising next week, I'm begging you, give us a fight scene!

43

Spoiler:

HOLY SHIT, THINGS FINALLY HAPPENED

- Wow, it was literal memory control
- So Eren ate his dad after his dad injected him just after the Wall fell
- And his dad stole the power of the Titans from them in the first place
- And yeah, it totally seemed like Eren's Dad was the Beast Titan or close to it
- If you go back and watch, that scene with Mikasa as a kid does play out exactly like they were insinuating. She stops shaking, has complete control of herself, snaps the knife and the floorboards etc

Ep 44

Spoiler:

- I like how the Humans with ODM gear have the same weakness as the Titans, attacking from behind
- And how they ambushed Levi and he still killed 12 MPs back in the second ep of the season, what a monster
- All the Scouts are killing people now
- Oh man, so the Founding Titan each time inherits the power but whatever they see of the true history of the past (probably us) stays their hands from killing all the Titans or they just get so above-it-all that they prefer to keep doing what they're doing or they just learn to hate fellow humans. So of course, the solution is to not see the first history at all and let the guy who wants to kill them all keep it
- Nice @ Kenny trying to sow chaos
- AND OF COURSE WE HAVE TO END THE EPISODE THERE, WITH TITAN ROD REISS ABOUT TO ATTACK CRYBABY EREN

S4E7/E44
Spoiler:

-when's the fight scene??
-holy fuck, Eren's dad set himself up for Eren to eat him so he could take revenge in the future??? Or maybe the eating part was accidental, but it seems more likely he wanted Eren to get the memories/power the dad got from eating the Reiss sister,. But is he suggesting that Eren's mom who got eaten in the first episode wasn't really his mom and he's avenging someone else, or is his dad planning that his mom will die in the titan attack???
-FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
-Armin brings the strategy
-Jean finally killed someone
-Fuck, man, all the lesser Scouts are fighting like total badasses, they really leveled up
-God can this show just be nothing but Mikasa fighting Shiny/thrilled
-I was kind of hoping Kenny wouldn't show up for this fight, I find him just that bit too over-the-top and cheesy enough that I lose a little suspension of disbelief when he's on screen. At least it means we'll get some Levi badassness
-this is a new style of music for this show, feels a little too modern compared to the usual stuff with the choral and military elements
-Nooo, Hange, it's a trick, don't fall for it!
-Hange falling to the ground, don't be dead, Hange! Sad
-Still finding the bloodline stuff kind of silly
-Kenny got played, no special titan power for him
-Christoria has kind of no personality, she just goes along completely with whoever shows up. It would actually be 100% believable with what she's experienced if she was just so bowled over any time someone treated her like she matters that she follows them desperately, but they're not good enough at character development to make it feel genuine here so it just kind of comes across like she's a character who wants whatever the writers need her to want and is otherwise just...nice. And now she's fine with exterminating every titan even though she cared so much about Ymir last season (and what happened to Bertrand and the other guy whose name I've for some reason forgotten even though he was way more important than Bertrand? There's been nothing about outside the walls this season at all)
-Kenny lets Eren free just for the fun of it. Eh, he's just not doing it for me as a badass agent of chaos, he's no Satou
-this scene between Eren and Christoria would be wayyyyy better if they'd had more interaction and relationship with each other before now.
-wished for humanity to be controlled by the Titans? And Ultimate Titan as God?!?
-Oh look, she remembered Ymir
-Holy fuck, that flash in her eyes and throwing her dad to the ground
-And hitting Eren, it's like she's finally found her entire lifetime's worth of backbone
-And now she hates humanity, okay I guess? Shrug
-Reiss dad licks the titan-juice and BOOM
-that giant skeleton

Previews didn't show any fight stuff next week, don't tell me we're going to go another million years with no fight scenes?

Noooo!

S4E8/E45
Spoiler:

-Kind of weird how much the intro focuses on the Eren/Mikasa/Armin friendship, when they haven't even had a scene together and have all had very little screentime at all so far.
-dude took wayyyy too much Skele-gro
-so she's helping Eren b/c he's another lost and potentially morally ambiguous puppy
-yay, Hange's not dead!
-"shut up already, you topless wimp" Laughing
-Eren collapses to the ground crying and Mikasa just looks at him like "what the fuck, quit having problems that I can't fix with murder."
-why are they telling Christoria they can't go slow for her, they make it sound like she doesn't have the same training as the rest of them
-titan armour in a bottle? Did they even show/mention this last episode?
-wow, cool, he made a crystal titan statue of himself, that'd make a hell of a decoration for your livingroom!
-"but to be perfectly honest, when you ran off prancing while crying like a baby, I thought we were doomed" rofl Sasha, never change
-holy fuck that many-armed, giant-torsoed titan abomination is creepy, I guess that's why you inject instead of licking Disapproving
-Angry!Christoria is way cooler than regular Christoria
-"When you're Queen, you can punch that runt in the face." rofl

Glad it looks like we're finally going to be bringing the plot round to the outside-the-wall stuff. And a fight next week!!

45

Spoiler:

Yeah, I mostly just had the thoughts of "THINGS ARE HAPPENING NOW" but kind of happened slowly. And yeah, that freaky-ass Titan that can't hold up its own weight

I think they mentioned the Titan Armor bottle offhand somehow, but I don't think they directly said what it did? I remember being confused about that too.

46

Spoiler:

- That jump in animation quality while showing Rod Titan busting his way to the city
- And Eren being a huge nerd trying to control the Titan rofl
- I love how all the Inner Wall Soldiers facial reactions to everything are like "FUCK US, WE ARE SO DEAD" while the Scouts are like "Yeah, same old Shrug
- All the whining townspeople and I'm like "Just let the Titan eat them all" and then they see the steam and they're like "... Oh FUCK"
- Eren being reminded of himself when he sees the kids was a nice touch, punching himself melodramatically in the face because he's an idiot was dumb
- CANNON FIRE SO COOL
- OH MY FUCKING GOD IT RIPPED OFF ITS OWN BODY DRAGGING ITSELF ON THE GROUND
- The fucking guts splash out and it's gross as fuck
- Exploding his head and then they all have to fly out and attack the meat-chunks because it will reconstitute itself if they don't find the Rod portion
- Cool Part: Christoria is the one that strikes the killing blow on Papa Reiss.
- Kinda Lame Part: Christoria being all "I'M THE RULER OF THE WALLS" as if killing a giant Titan merits you ruling all of humanity Laughing
- So tbh other people who read the manga that I know have been freaking out about KENNNYYY and I'm kind of just waiting for whatever it is that makes Kenny so cool that people go KENNNYYYY for him. Maybe injecting himself with Titan Juice will do it? Uh-oh

S4E9/E46
Spoiler:

-the way that titan drags itself across the ground, bulging-eyed, face-first through rubble Shudder
-they're telling the townspeople it's a drill with dummy titans? Surely they'll be able to tell it's a real titan by the time it gets within fight range?
-everyone is treating it like an annoying fire drill Laughing
-"try to imagine we're wrapping up a nice gift for someone special" I lol'd but then you see Christoria and remember that the 'someone special' is her dad :/
-Eren's back on the self-pity train
-holy fuck the entire front of its head is gone from dragging
-and its body too this is disgusting
-oh god people are getting crushed by its falling organs I'd forgotten this show is so horrifying
-the scouts seem so cool now, being all "Freaky titan? I guess it's Tuesday," while the other soldiers are completely panicking
-it might not have a mouth to open, but it also doesn't have a mouth to close
-titan meat everywhere
-those memories, is that implying she somehow got the titan memories/power from her father while killing him???
-was that really all the fight we get?! Damnit, we wait this many episodes for a fight and they just finish it off that quickly and easily? What the fuck!?
-Christoria goes ahead and declares herself queen
-Levi actually makes a facial expression :/
-Kenny's got the titan injection. I mean, the show has been trying really hard to make us think Kenny's insanely cool, I'm not feeling it, but maybe other people do, or at least enough that if he does something cool upcoming they're on board? Whatever it is, please let it involve some actual fighting.

Spoiler:

Eh, Kenny's backstory is kinda whatever. Uncle Kenny sucks, and then he gets taken in by the Reiss for some reason, and there's an underground city where he teaches Levi things, and then he realizes life within the walls sucks (we've known that since ep 1) and then he chooses to die while giving Levi titan juice to make him a normal Titan. And hooray, Christoria is now auto-Queen and everyone kinda lives happily ever after and she punches Levi adorably and forget why she was mad at him

And then HO-HEY REINER AND THE BEAST TITAN JUST FOUGHT AND they didn't show it to us and now the ep preview indicates they're probably gonna talk again.

I dunno, the last 12 eps feels like it could've been done in 3, the second season outro sequence was a lot stronger in building up mystery of the past and the origin of the Titans than this half-season has :/

Spoiler:

-woah, the person half-out of the titan
-Kenny's terrified "let me go"s include saying he'll kill him in his sleep next time and stuffing his skull with shit is a nice idea rofl
-"It's not my fault, I can't control my creativity!" rofl
-so they've been persecuting and hunting Ackermans all this time, I'd think that's why Mikasa's mom was killed, but they made a point of her being Asian, so presumably it was her father's side that's an Ackerman. Hold on, did they ever even say Mikasa's last name before? If they were so persecuted, to the point where Kenny wouldn't go out in the daytime even once he was working for the Reiss family, wouldn't someone have made some kind of comment about her last name before now? (...unless they ended the persecution completely and then wiped everyone's memory since then. That really makes it hard to tell what's a plot hole or something missed and what's intentional)
-"...how to say hello" as he grips a dying-looking guy guy by the collar and shouts at him rofl I still find him immersion-breakingly try-hard cool and an unnecessary amount of angst-dark backstory shit, but Kenny is kind of hilarious
-I do have to admit that's kind of a cool character point/motivation, he wants to rise to the top and gain that power because he wants to gain that compassion they have and see the world that way; wanting to have compassion seemingly without having the compassion that would normally make you want it
-Levi is making so many facial expressions his face just might not freeze that way anymore Uh-oh
-Well, Christoria's certainly starting off on the right foot as queen
-"Mikasa was just joking, right Mikasa?" "After you smack him, tell him you dare him to hit you back" rofl
-I don't even remember why they even want to hit Levi in the first place??
-Christoria's RAAAAgh and tiny little punch rofl
-And everyone's shocked except Mikasa, who's just smirking with satisfaction Laughing
-And Levi just thanks them, with a tiny but actual honest-to-goodness smile on his face, not just an I'm-going-to-kick-ass smirk but real one, he's massively leveled up in facial expressions!
-So Reinhardt and Bertrand are fighting Beast-titan's enemy but also he considers them on the same team? But couldn't they have shown us the fight, at least for fuck's sake? This show was based on cool fights!
-Hi Eren's dad!!

The last 12 eps definitely could have been done in three. Kenny was almost unnecessary.  But I did get a ton of laughs from this episode.

Spoiler:

- That feel when Christa will never be your Mom (?)
- That feel when Mikasa will never give you murder eyes for carrying things around
- Fucking bowlcut had a waifu and only Eren is too dumb to realize what was happening Laughing
- "EAT YOUR FOOD EREN" K-kinda pushy, Mikasa
- The new anti-Titan weapons, log guillotine, nice
- And it was the Commandant
- Ohoooo, Dr Jaegar was like Ymir, someone outside the walls
- Goofy love triangle
- So calling the Commandant "special" was a curse and after all that, the Commandant is worried that Dr Jaegar will curse Eren too
- And all the tiny little things were wrapped up (Eren getting to the shelter, why his belt malfunctioned etc)
- "I'm not special, I'm just a monstrous Titan." Ehhhhhhh, enough of this self-pity stuff already please
- That feel when Carla is a-okay if her son isn't special at all <3
- "On the next episode, the night before they take back the wall, where they talk some more."

S3E11/E48
Spoiler:

-Christoria's a wonderful, orphan-caring queen, yeah yeah, we get it show, we're supposed to love her  Sleep
-what's with the underground people, I don't remember anything about those. Other than I guess Ymir's worshippers seemed to be underground, but they're talking like this is something recent, so there must be something else that I somehow totally blanked on ?
-was that meant to be Mikasa being jealous that Eren's spending time with Christoria, or what?  And like, didn't they have a big romantic confession at the end of last season, shouldn't they be dating now or something? They've been acting like nothing happened this whole season. Not that I particularly was interested in that romance, it was pretty meh, but why the fuck would anyone pick Boringly Sweet Perfect Queen (who once briefly got mad and had a personality but is over it now) over Terrifying Murder Waifu?
-Hange losing her shit over their new titan-killing log-guillotine invention, "SAY HELLO TO THE EXECUTIONER FROM HELL" rofl
-uh-oh, nose-bleeds, the universal sign that over-exerting supernatural powers is killing you
-Awww, that soldier they captured joined the Scouts!
-"he's a bowl-cut imbecile" Laughing
-it feels kind of weird that there's innocent new recruits now and they're the experienced ones. But I think that's a good move for the show, it's been getting harder for them to evoke that total terror that Titans originally evoked now that we've seen them handling so much. And it'll also give them some room to be able to kill off some of the more side Scouts without depleting the team too much, it's been feeling like the fights are pretty safe because they don't want to risk killing any of the Scouts who would have previously felt expendable and having no team left.  (Please don't kill Sasha, though!)
-the newbies get scared off from asking what happened to the veterans Laughing They're basically all like Mikasa now
-are they really going to make us sit through an Eren-Christoria-Mikasa love triangle?  Neutral  
-"NO I AM QUITE FINE STANDING HERE" Sasha shrieks politely rofl
-"the fangs lurking deep within your eyes are your father's," th-that's not where fangs are supposed to be Uh-oh
-this is another backstory episode. Sigh. Can't they dole out the backstory in the middle of fight scenes or something? When they said they were going to retake Wall Maria, I thought we'd be getting them immediately starting to desperately fight their way through into the Titan-occupied lands Sad
-Hannes Sad
-blahblahblah, do we really need to know about the romantic and career disappointment of the former commander of the Scouts that I don't remember meeting ever before and probably won't remember if he shows up ever again?
-"special people do exist, I was just never one of them." That's a trope that always gets me, this  would be pretty devastating if, you know, I actually cared about this random dude at all. Lurking/sketchy
-It's kind of anti-climactic that Eren's father just somehow carried Eren out of the shelter and put him back without anyone noticing, that's it. And this can't be when he ate his father, then, either.
-Hange's just like, fuck you, it's not about being special, it's about having a weird scientific/possibly sexual thing for Titans!
-the reason Eren sucked so much in training was that this dude sabotaged his equipment to try and make him have a normal life instead because not being special is just fine? That's kind of weird to just do that now, like couldn't it just have been an ordinary equipment failure, we weren't sitting here wondering why all this time so it didn't really need rewriting?

Next week: more talking before the battle, but who knows if there'll ever actually be a battle after that or if it'll last more than two seconds if there is

Spoiler:

It was sort of mentioned or at least visually shown a few episodes ago with Kenny/Levi's backstory. There's hidden underground settlements within the walls where outcasts live.
