Even after she was recently devoured the female titan is chasing after the special operations squadron, since all other plans to capture the titan have failed the special opts decide to try blinding her by slicing out her eyes on coordinated strikes, they then start using more coordinate strikes to attack her arm muscles so that she cannot move her arms to protect the weak spot.

female titan no eyes

Unfortunately this plan did not work as the female titan concentrates all of her energy into just one eye and it regenerates in under 30 seconds and she soons kills Petra, Eldo and Oluo of Squad Levi.

Erin sees all of this chaos and he soon comes to the realisation that he should have transformed into a Titan much earlier into the mission but he instead put trust into his comrades who are now all dead, Erin realises that he could have saved many lives if he just listened to his conscience and this thought makes him very sad and very angry.

Erin has had enough and he finally returns to Titan form to tackle the female Titan in a battle to the death.

Erin Titan and female titan fighting Both of the titans fight for what can only be hours and they are both very worn out but unfortunately the female titan knocks Erin’s head clean off and then she pulls Erin out of the body and eats him, Mikasa sees this and she is absolutely distraught Mikasa chases after the female titan and she try’s to slash at her unprotected neck but her blades are completely destroyed, this shows that the female titan might be invincible and that is not good news for the soldiers, Mikasa believes that Erin is still alive and she vows to somehow release  him from within the female titans stomach.

This episode was fantastic, we got to see the female titan at her very worst in an awesome titan battle with Erin, we also see the possibility of the female titan being invincible and I find that to be a very terrifying thought, I really liked that the message of this episode was that you should not always listen to your friends or  comrades as they may be wrong, its little messages like this that make me love this show as much as I do.

5/5

Attack on Titan E20 Erwin Smith The 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, Part 4

Spoilers !!!

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

Now that the Female Titan has been captured many of the scouts have come to the conclusion that there is a spy among them,I don’t understand where this conclusion came from because the only time this subject has been touched upon previously was when Sonny and Bean mysteriously died and even if that is the reason that they are talking about this possibility, why are they only discussing this now and not when the previous situation took place?

Erwin Suspects that the spy would have become a Survey Corp around five years ago which is approximately when the destruction of Wall Maria took place in the first episode.

if there is a spy it can mean a number of different things, one they are just killing for sport which is very unlikely, two its matter of revenge against some one or just the soldiers in general or three this spy also has the titan ability just like Erin and they are secretly working with the titans but are also working as a soldier to protect them selves from being caught.

As much as I don’t like that the spy thing has only just been thrown into the mix, it does bring a lot of tension and mystery to the table, who is this mysterious killer and why are they helping the titans?.

Erwin is struggling to figure out how they can release the human from inside of the female titans body, this has become a big issue because she has the ability to form a protective shell over her hands and if soldiers try to cut through the shell their blades are completely destroyed

After failing to attack the females titans weak spot Captain Levi starts to taunt the female titan threatening to blow off her limbs,a very foolish decision as this causes the female titan to release a deafening scream, no more than two minutes later and an army of titans come rushing through the forest and they all start to devour the female titans body, a few soldiers try to defeat the titans but after realising that they are outnumbered they retreat failing the mission.

while retreating Erwin explains to Hanji Zoe that he saw the female titan being eaten but he never saw the human inside of the body, not long after this we are shown Erin’s group who have a mysterious guest turn up wearing a Survey Corps Hood the hooded figure appears to kill one of the survey corps and that’s where the episode ends

hooded figure

I’m not sure what to think of this episode I am pleased that they have brought in a new antagonist and I am looking forward to finding out who this person is but apart from that I found the whole episode a little boring and uninteresting, there was a lot going on and the episode transitioned extremely well between the two groups of soldiers (Inside the Forest and Outside the Forest).

Apart from these things nothing much about the episode really got me hooked or made me completely engaged with what was going on and honestly I cant see me watching this one for a second viewing.

2.3/5

Attack on Titan E19 Bite The 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, Part 3

Spoilers !!!

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

 

We begin the episode where we left off last time, Captain Levi’s group are still running through the forest while getting chased by the female titan, we learn that Captain Levi’s purpose in setting off the smoke signal was simply an act of impulse to confuse or stun the titan, sadly this did not work.

As a last resort Erin attempts to become a titan but is quickly stopped by his comrades who are  telling him that he should trust them, Erin is now stuck between following his conscience and listening to those who are laying down their lives for him.

Cover your ears

 

We are now taken into a flash back of Erin’s training for the current mission, he is stood in a well and is told that when Hanji Zoe sets off her smoke signal he should bite his finger but as he tries to do this he does not transform, he bites his hands many times during his attempt at transformation but he still has no luck and this time his wounds wont even heal.

Later on during dinner Erin drops his spoon and as he picks it up his right arm transforms into the arm of a titan, his comrades get out their weapons and threaten to kill him if he doesn’t convince them that he is safe.

Erins Titan Arm

 

Erin manages to free his arm from the titan flesh,later on that night Hanji Zoe shares a new discovery about Erin’s abilities with the survey corps, it turns out that Erin can only transform when he is trying to achieve some kind of a goal, after learning this Erin’s comrades feel really guilty about shouting at him all of them bite their hands as a way of apologising to Erin, this moment teaches all of Captain Levi’s group about the importance of trust.

Back in the present Erin is still contemplating his big decision but he eventually decides to take the word of his comrades and he keeps moving forward, the female titan is getting very close to Erin at this point but luckily she is attacked with hundreds of harpoons and it turns out that the plan was to capture her alive all along in order to find out who is controlling the titan body

Harpooned Titan

This episode was really cool, it did not have too much action but the emotions and the atmosphere was just fantastic, this is the first episode that really expanded on Levi’s character, the way he reacts to the survey corps when they are trying to kill Erin shows a more sympathetic and caring side to the all out bad-ass we have been shown in previous episodes. I thought that the trust scene was brilliant having Erin’s comrades bite their hands to go through the pain that he goes through every time he wants  to transform was really sweet and in a way shows that even though Erin carries titan DNA they are all very similar and will always stick together.

Absolutely Awesome Cant wait until episode 20

5/5
