The beastly Colossal Titan was revealed to be Grisha's brother and Eren's uncle, Zeke, who has decided to live as a loyal soldier of the Marleyan army.


Just a small correction, spoiler[Zeke is the Beast Titan not the Colossal Titan, and he is Grisha's first son and Eren's half-brother]. That's not a spoiler for anything that hasn't been shown yet in the anime, just clarifying an admittedly confusing situation.

A beard sure makes a guy look older, right?

God, how I missed Attack on Titan!

That was a great first episode. It seamlessly introduced the new characters and brought back a couple of old ones, and we're also diving right into the main themes of the show, pulling no punches in the process.

The CGI looked great. Best it's ever looked. I loved seeing the Jaw Titan dancing around. Although I do agree that the Beast Titan could've looked better.

My only real complaint is the way the exposition was handled at the beginning. Falco conveniently having amnesia so that Gabi could explain the war that's been going felt kinda forced.

Anyway, I'm so excited. This season's gonna be great. Hopefully MAPPA will be able to keep up the animation quality, but we all know how messy the anime industry can be. Hoping for the best.

Quick question: what Gaby did in this episode (disguise as civilian and take advantage of her child appearance) are considered as “war crimes” right? It’s definitely an unethical move, but I am not sure if it’s illegal on international laws?

Great start to an amazing finale

Also can't wait to see the shitshow when certain people will get mad at certain topics that will be shown in this part of the story
spoiler[When all the Nazi-like military imagery and stuff starts popping out. Hell, Im sure some specific people (Maybe the reviewer of this site) will get mad at Eren, cant wait to see the shitshow]

Thanks for pointing that out - The article has been corrected! I think I mixed up the flashbacks to Little Grisha's life with his sister and when it jumps forward to Zeke's betreyal later on.

There's still a little error there (spoiler tags to be on the safe side): as navycherub said, spoiler[Zeke is the Beast Titan, not the Colossal Titan] ^^;

Yup. Disguising yourself as a civilian and false surrender are considered war crimes. This is also implied later in the episode when Gabi criticises Falco for "obeying the laws of war".

I got that mixed up while watching this ep too. Doesn't help that the age difference between the brothers makes it easy to not realize they're siblings Anime hyper
