Attack on Titan E16 What Needs to be Done Now Eve of the Counterattack, Part 3

Spoilers !!!


It’s now time for all of the soldiers to make the big decision of which force they will join the survey corps, the garrison or the military police .

Commander Erwin gives a very intense speech about the dangers of joining the survey corps which scares away the majority of the soldiers, he tells the soldiers that who ever wants to join should stay and the rest should leave to join another less dangerous attack force, all of the soldiers make their choice leaving just a handful of soldiers to join the survey corps.

The remaining soldiers

All those who joined the survey corps starts training the next day , the first tasks for the survey corps is too initiate the new recruits as well as test Erin’s titan ability, Erin is given permission to see Mikasa and Armin before they start the training Mikasa gets very emotional and is relieved to finally see Erin again after such a long separation , she is also still very angry at Captain Levi and swears she will get revenge for his violence towards Erin in the court room.

This is also the first time that Erin hears about Marco’s passing which is something that is still haunting Jean.

Marcos Dead

Everyone is pleased to be helping protect Erin on the path to Zhiganshina but they do have their doubts whether they have made the right choice due to Erin not yet having complete control over his titan abilities and because he tried to kill Mikasa while in titan form during the previous battle.

The best part about the scene is that nothing is over the top or over dramatic all of the characters show their emotions in a calm but effective manner and that something that I believe most of the time this show does really well compared to many other anime’s.

This episode was great, all of the soldiers had to make a big decision and you can genuinely sympathise with their final decisions, every emotional scene is played off perfectly these characters are feeling these intense emotions and in some ways I was feeling these emotions with them.

This episode did not have the awesome attack on titan action that I love but it was a very emotional episode which in my opinion was directed perfectly


I hope you enjoyed this Attack on Titan review
