Spoliers !!!

k2-_c1760eea-fdd0-4fb7-be96-8b2c0a4bcff4.v1

The Epic battle between Erin Annie begins and while they are fighting we start to see flashbacks of Annie’s past, in these flashbacks Annie seems to be with her father and it appears that he may be the reason that Annie has the titan ability it all seems very similar to how Erin’s father gave him the titan ability, I wonder where Erin’s father is because we haven’t seen him since part 1.

Annie and her father flashback

Annie manages to beat Erin half to death by constantly smashing his head when he trapped in a corner and after he seems defeated she makes a run for the wall in an attempt to escape, but unluckily for her Erin gets back up and he appears to have gained the same amount of power as her, Erin’s eyes have now turned blue, he has strange red markings all over his body and he appears to be on fire, also his voice has now changed from Erin’s usual voice to something more dark and menacing.

Erins new titan form

Erin manages to tackle Annie just before she reaches the wall and he crushes her face with the fist of his new body, after all of this Annie still manages to get away and starts climbing the wall but luckily Mikasa swoops in and slices off all of Annie’s fingers making her fall to the ground, when Annie hits the ground Erin pounces in her and starts ripping her body to pieces like and animal on its prey, he finally sees Annie in her human form but he stops himself from killing her when he sees that there are tears streaming down her face.

Annie crying

In an unusual turn of events both Annie and Erin start to merge bodies which I’m sure would give some pretty awesome results but after realising how dangerous this could be Captain Levi quickly cuts Erin out of his titan body.

After rescuing Erin the scouts notice that Annie has cocooned herself in what appears to be the material that shielded her from attacks in the previous episodes, she also seems to be in a coma which is good because it means that she wont harm anyone but its also bad because now the scouts cant get any information out of her.

Annie’s Cocooned body is now under constant watch both day and night and the episode ends with a narrator telling us that “it would still take much sacrifice and time before humanity learned what it was that held them captive” and during this speech the camera zooms in on Erin’s body showing us the key to his dads basement.

This episode was great and a fantastic end to both part 2 and season 1 of Attack on Titan, it was surprising to see Annie having all of those flashbacks because it helps show that maybe she isn’t as bad as she is portrayed to be and it also shows that there may be a lot more people who have been given the titan ability, we haven’t seen Erin’s dad in a long time so maybe he is part of an organisation that secretly admires the titans and maybe that’s why he gave Erin the titan ability and it is also possible that Annie’s father may be part of this secret organisation as well.

I am certain that there will be a season 2 of Attack on Titan due to its popularity and its many unanswered questions, I cant wait until I can learn more about Attack on Titan and its many dark secrets.

5/5

Attack on Titan E24 Mercy Assault on Stohess, Part 2

Spoilers !!!

k2-_c1760eea-fdd0-4fb7-be96-8b2c0a4bcff4.v1

The episode begins with a flashback showing the scouts planning the trap they set for Annie in the last episode, it was Armin who figured out it was Annie and he gives his theory as too why Annie is the female titan to Erwin.

Erin is disgusted that Armin and the rest of the scouts have agreed that Annie is the bad guy with no physical evidence and he keeps this denial through out the remainder of the episode.

This denial prevents Erin from transforming into a Titan when Annie has himself, Mikasa and Armin trapped in the tunnel she refused to go into, because Erin wont transform Mikasa questions whether he has feelings for Annie which is a possibility but I have my doubts as too whether this is true.

Erin cant transform in the tunnel

Armin realises that a change of plan is needed and both himself and Mikasa exit through opposite ends of the tunnel hoping that Annie will chase one of them giving the other two time to escape, Erin begs them both to come back but Armin keeps running and Mikasa tells Erin that “the world is cruel” a lesson the he taught her very early into the show, unfortunately this plan did not work because instead of chasing either Mikasa or Armin, Annie stomps through the roof crushing Erin under the debris where he remains for the majority of the episode.

Erin under the debris

 

Armin finds Erin and tries to get him out of the debris he calls over Jean to help, but one look at Erin and Jean realises that its too late to save him and the only way he could possibly survive is if  he transforms, Armin tells Erin that “To defeat monsters, you have to be willing to throw aside your humanity” Armin distracts Annie in order to keep her away from Erin, Erin thinks about what Armin says and he has flashbacks of all the people he loved and cared for who had been killed by the titans and after he has a flashback of his mother being eaten he finally transforms and the episode ends with his fist making impact with Annie’s cheek.

Erin transformed and ready to fight Annie again

 

This episode was awesome I really appreciate that we got to see the scouts planning the attack and I also really appreciate that the the episode showed the clues that helped Armin figure out that the female titan was Annie, the animation was absolutely outstanding this time around as it was well detailed and had a very fine use of shadows and shading, the episode was very emotional and as much as I don’t believe that Erin has feelings for Annie I do believe that he has a lot of serious mental health problems such as Anger issues and problems from his past that have left a serious impact on him.

This episode was great cant wait for episode 25

5/5

Attack on Titan E23 Smile Assault on Stohess, Part 1

Spoilers !!!

k2-_c1760eea-fdd0-4fb7-be96-8b2c0a4bcff4.v1

 

The episode begins with an introduction to the Military Police, we get to see some new characters who all have interesting personalities, we are also able to catch up with Annie Leonhart who is a character that we have not seen in quite a while.

One of the new characters in Annie’s division believes that the Military Police is corrupt, he sees two senior members illegally selling Military Police equipment to a black market and when he questions the two men on this they beat him with the end of their rifles until he can hardly stand up and they are only stopped by Annie who threatens to expose them to the towns people watching the scene they have caused.

It turns out that Annie’s group were heading towards a horse and wagon that is holding Erin inside, their job is to escort Erin and the Survey Corps to what I believe is Erin’s trial, it is at this trial that he will find out whether he will live or die.

During the escort Armin whispers to Annie from within an alley way he is wearing a cloak to cover his body and it is very clear that he is hiding from both the Military Police and the civilians, he asks Annie if she will help himself, Mikasa and Erin out of the city so that they can escape, at first she is against the idea but Armin soon persuades her to change her mind.

Annie’s walks Erin, Mikasa and Armin to an outer gate that they can use to exit the city, in order for them to use the gate they all need to go underground for a short while but Annie is very hesitant to do so, she keeps saying that she afraid of the dark and none of them can convince her to follow them Erin starts screaming at her to move begging her to help him survive, this is one of the first times we have seen Erin genuinely this terrified, after a while Mikasa has had enough and tells Annie that she will rip her to shreds just like she did back in the forest.

Annie starts to laugh uncontrollably its honestly very creepy her laughs soon turn into a psychopathic grim and its immediately clear what is going on, a bunch of towns people and Survey Corps tackle Annie to the ground and gag her mouth, but unfortunately the ring on her finger has spike on it, mikasa grabs Arimn and Erin and runs to the city’s exit, the episode ends with an explosion of light and we finally find out that Annie is the female titan which was a very unexpected twist.

The episode started off a little slow and I found difficult to get engaged with what was going on, I really like the new characters especially that one guy who wants to change the Military Police as he reminded me of Erin in the first few episodes of the show, It was really cool to see Erin so afraid of what was going to happen to him as we havent truly seen Erin showing fear at such a high level before although this may have been put on as part of the plan to capture Annie.

3.6/5
