I think the intro needs to be updated to reflect that this article now summarizes the first half of the 3rd season as well.

I read a lot of "eren" as "erin".

Believing their deaths to be inevitable, Mikasa finally confesses her love for Erin, but the surge of emotion unlocks a new ability within Erin: He can control Titans.


I thought for sure this was a turn for the comedy side and you were starting to goof off when I skimmed this article Laughing

I guess that's one way to interpret that scene, though,

I haven't seen any part of the show. However, looking at the graphics from the show I do have a question. Can anyone explain why their swords are scored like box cutters that have been extended all the way??

They're break-away blades because Titan necks are tough. They carry additional blades... again like box cutters because cutting at the back of their neck is the only sure way to kill them. And it's easier for them to go scouting with two hilts and a score of blades rather than a pack of swords.

So, yeah, they look like box cutters because they're box cutters.

I was afraid it might be something like that. Interesting concept for an alternative type blade. Of course it ignores the way a box cutter is designed to work and doesn't make much practical sense either. Oh well, artistic license I suppose. Confused
