IT BEGINS

I was only able to kill one titan, The Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear needs a little work. But, it’s cute and fun. Play Linked Horizon and get you titan killing game on.

“Welcome to Salty Spitoon, how tough are ya?”
“How tough am I?! I killed ten titans!”
“Heh, yeah so?”
“With a trackpad”
“Right this way, sorry to keep you waiting.”

Once I figured out the movement patterns of the titans and that you can hold M1 and let go when you reach the neck, it got a bit easier. Bait the titan, jump behind him when he attacks, jump at the neck before he starts moving again.

But yes, 3D Maneuver Gear controls could use some work. I’d like to be able to control whether both cables go straight ahead or angled to the sides, that messed up a lot of jumps.

Most of the commands are intuitive (left mouse to attack, WASD to move, Space to double hook), but if you scroll down a little, there is a control list that tells you about a special attack (S + left mouse), salute (N) and independent hook control with Q and E, that helped me a lot but i still can’t kill more than 5 titans.

TL;DR use Space for angled hooks and Q/E to shoot where your mouse is pointing.

So episode 13 is out.

Guess what guys? WE FINALLY HAVE PLOT MOVEMENT, THE FIRST ARC IS FINISHED!

So after 13 episodes, the first arc of the show is finished. I think that the show’s pacing will start to speed up now, considering most of the characters have been adequately developed. Oh, and anyone who thought that Eren being a titan was a shocking twist, the next arc will smash that twist to the ground. And you all now realize why I had an issue with Marco’s role in the fandom, being included as part of the main group. It wasn’t so much he didn’t do much, despite what I earlier said, it’s more pity for his fans because of him being killed off. If it helps, his death plays a large part in the next arc’s twist (don’t worry, none of this is spoilerish).

Anyway, I’m looking forward to the next arc (after next episodes recap), so here’s to then. Also, it’s probably worth mentioning that the full version of the current opening is being released on Wednesday, so there’s that too.

What? Plot movement? What a strange and alien concept to this anime.

I’m excited for the next arc. I’m up to date in the manga now, and this really is where the plot gets moving.

It’s interesting, though – it’s been awhile since I’ve been up to date with a series when there’s still so many questions. The manga is significantly farther than the anime – more than three, almost four times as much content, yet there’s still so much that’s in the dark. To be honest… I like it.

Good to know a few people are catching up with the manga, maybe we’ll be able to talk about that as well as the anime. As for the story’s constant questions, I have my own theory as to what the story will end up like

I think that the Titans are actually humans, who have morphed into the titan forms and are attacking humans due to a loss of control (such as when Eren attacked Mikasa in the first arc). This is a theory also justified by Connie when he states that a Titan from his home town looked like his mother. Another theory that could explain why titans are attacking humans is due to revenge. The Titans were said to have appeared out of nowhere, and the government’s mysterious actions could point to this being because they are trying to cover up failed past experiments. It’s possible that the Titans are trying to get revenge on the human race for treating them as enemies. Related to this is Eren’s father’s role in this. I think that Eren’s father is also responsible for the creation of the Titan’s somehow, and keeps the evidence locked in the basement. It’s also possible for Eren’s dad to be the Ape Titan, but this brings up a few problems (such as the fact that the Ape Titan was unaware of the 3D maneuver gear). This also explains Bertholdt and Reiner’s need to capture Eren. Maybe they needed to capture Eren in order to take him back to his father. His father knew Eren wanted to join the military, so it explains how they knew where to look. Unfortunately, I don’t have any theories about Historia or the wall worshipers, but I have a feeling we’ll learn about the answer to that soon enough. /p>

When I say Wednesday, I mean Wednesday the 10th. Oh well, 3 days isn’t that long to correct a mistake right? Besides, the full version is already circulating, but the audio quality is so bad it’s not even worth mentioning.

So um, How about episode 13.5 I guess? Well with it being just a recap, I guess we could go with predictions for the next arc. I’d like to hear what you guys who haven’t read the manga think will happen in the next arc.

also: FAK U MANGA

FAK U HARD. BERTHOLDT LOVES ME NOT HER THE FORUM GAME PROVES IT.

Not buying any until they release the Armin version.

New episode today.
It looks like the pace is finally picking up a bit. I’m pretty sure with the first arc’s pacing, that episode would have lasted 3 episodes, but it only took 1! Still, I wonder how they are going to fit the rest of the story into just 10 episodes without it feeling rushed. I have high hopes that this is where the show finally kicks off though.

^ And thus step 1 of Ravioli’s psychological testing of Eren’s worth begins. But how will our intrepid hero overcome step 2?

Another good episode. Now we’re getting into the good part, I can hopefully stop worrying about the pacing.

Hey, come on guys, the second op isn’t THAT bad. I think it’s quite good.

I found a clip with the Shingeki boys in a k-pop outfit.

Side note, if you’re going to post a ton of videos, at least have the decency to spoiler a few. That up top? That’s prime browser-crashing material.

Episode 16 today

Now we know who’s joining the Recon Corps (basically the main cast bar Annie), we should be able to continue the story nicely. Still don’t know how it’s going to fit into 25 episodes though, but then again, they can just make a second season (although that would mean waiting even longer).
Also, best scene:

Because Titan Eren would be completely concerned with hitting a Fly at full strength in the middle of a vital mission.

With the next episode preview showing a Titan attack, I’m calling it right now that Petra at the very least is going to die. She’s too damn nice. MARCO CAN TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS TO NICE PEOPLE IN THIS SHOW OH WAIT NO HE CAN’T
