I still can't believe it's going to end soon. Sad

The studio has done a good job of adapting the manga this season. They’re really nailing the bleak desperation of it all. The voice acting has been superb too.

I am assuming season 3 of the anime is ending at chapter 90 of the manga. That would be a good stopping point, and I would be cool with it. But I want the whole manga adapted, especially if it only takes 2 or 3 more anime cours.

No, we should tell them what is inside the room

[spoiler

An initial D arcade machine, mazinger Z, a portal to an isekai and a starbucks

Oh, you will. You most certainly will. The reactionary politics that have always been simmering under the surface as subtext in AoT are about to become text.

Could even the worst isekai be a crappier place to live than the AoT universe? Even Subara and Naofumi combined don't have it as bad as the average Scout.

I think this is the first time Levi's shown overt compassion for anyone?


Nah, in the episode he's introduced he comforts a dying soldier. He also gave away Petra's patch to that idiot who almost got killed trying to get his friend's body after the female titan attack.

Well, that explains how the Danmachi crossover happened (yes, that was actually a thing).

Not really. If you actually read the series properly instead of just taking the use of symbolism as flat endorsement, you can actually read it as the complete opposite. spoiler[Militarism, imperialism, authoritarian power structures and racial segregation] isn't exactly displayed in a very positive light.

People who read AoT as full reactionary propaganda seem to just ignore everything related to Jean and especially Sasha.

I loved the Randy Johnson reference! Props!

As a reader of the manga and watcher of the anime, I'm truly interested to see how the anime adapts the next episode and the content beyond. This is going to be amazing!

I can't believe how fast they went through Wall Maria, that arc felt way more epic in the manga. At the rate they're going, it looks like this season will end with spoiler[the reunion].
