Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), episode 15.

This one was better than I thought it would be. Not that I was expected much. They promised a character introduction episode, they gave it. But they managed to mix it with some little bits of story development and they didn’t try to show off too many characters at once, so it was ok.

They concentrated on Zoë (I wish I knew how to pronounce this name) and that was fine with me. I like that she turned out to be more of a scientist than a titan-loving freak.

I any case, she doesn’t seem to mind having her pets pierced with nails all over their bodies

The idea of looking at the problem of titans from a researcher point of view is great. You need to understand the physics behind the phenomena to be able to deal with it effectively, at least that is how I see it. And experiments done by Zoe, being random as they are, may actually help people to understand the titans better.

From what we learned in this episodes titans look like they are a balloons, filled with hot air. When you put them under cover, they become less active. When you kill them, they emanate steam. Their weight is lesser than it should be. There is something in this whole steam thing, I’m sure.

I also want to mention that Zoe’s character deign is not at all typical, with her slightly hooked nose.

And there isn’t much else to say. I hope they finish this new mini-arc as soon as possible. The next episode is going to be about cadets picking their branches. Obviously, most will pick the recon corps. Jean’s got to pick the police. Armin would have been better off there too, but I suspect he will follow Eren and go into the Recon Corps.

By the way, did I mention that the previous ending for this show was much better?

  1. In terms of pacing in this arc, it will most likely will be slowly “kicking into gear”. Bet on A LOT of riding horses and a lot of fighting towards the mid to end. At the end of the arc we will find out 1 of the secrets of the walls! It’s *rumblerumblerumble*. And than will come last arc (for now since there is not enough manga yet – we are almost mid-way through the current chapters) and what people call “Monkey Trouble”. Because he’s monkey and he’s trouble ;)

    There are around 260 cadets shown in the manga. How many of them will join?
