Wow what an episode! I am still having chills… Also a warning, manga spoilers.
Unlike some part of the fandom was afraid to be, we get our canned herring also known as you gay // lol you gay scene. While watching this episode, something I don’t remember happening in manga took my attention. No, I am not talking about poor Nanaba.
I am talking about the scene Gelgar found his soulmate, aka alchol.
That is some nice sake you got there Gelgar, what does it says on it?
And of course you can’t read it.
I assume secret language of alchol bottle and the secret language of canned herring are the one and same. Anyone that was born and raised within the walls can’t read it.
Ymir, who was born at the mainland and Reiner, who was born at same country can read it well. Reiner said he can’t read it but i think that was partially because he was under the control of his warrior persona, after looking at it a little he also read some as well it as well. Also remember, it has been longer than five years since little boy Reiner left Marley and started to live with Walled People so it is okay little boy Reiner to forget some of the language. If we do not use something we learn like language we might start to forget it.
So… Where did these come from? Who brought these to the Utgard? Was it really bandits? Maybe.
But I bet my money on something else.
What if Zeke, our monkey trouble, was at Utgard before taking his way to Ragako village?
Here is how I think things went:
Zeke arrived to Paradis with one of Marley’s ships.
He reached the Walls like Grisha did before, since he also can manipulate Titans in his strange way, this was not that much of a struggle for him.
He turned to a Titan and passed through Wall Maria and reached Wall Rose.
He camped at Utgard who is located quite close to Wall Rose, enjoyed his drink, ate some herring.
He took a lovely trip to Ragako village, do something there, like screaming like a mad man, and turned it’s citizens to Mindless Titans.
He left his supply at Utgard, since he was busy with commanding a Titan army and chatting with common folks like Mike, he was kinda busy.
SC reached Utgard.
He also reached Utgard to enjoy some drink but SC was there enjoying his stuff. Like Nanaba said, it was like they were the bandits there.
He got mad to these userpers, unleashed his titan army with his mighty roar and throw some rocks at them, who can blaime him?
And that is how his and SC’s roads crossed.
I assume the secret language of herring might be Marleyan and that is why nobody but Eldians who lived at Marley was able to read them. Maybe that is why Zeke asked Mike whether or not he is speaking the same language with him.
But of course, this is just a theory. Hope you enjoyed as well, thank you for reading!
Camus is the antithesis of Reinhardt. Look at his big, meaty hands. These are the hands of a man I can trust my country to. He certainly won’t disappear to a different continent and forget who he is before coming back channeling his inner Char Aznable.
Shao literally had to go back to one of his implied abusers because he wants to protect his brothers. He can’t be set free like how he hopes but he has a big heart. Zeke is wrong to believe everyone else …Shao is not an empty soul and he knows that better than anyone else. Dizzee refers Shao as a superhero but the reality is, no one has ever been one to Shao so he became his own hero and made things happen for himself. This only changed when he met the get down brothers so I ask how did things go so wrong for Shao?
Does Ra Ra have shit gaydar or does it just take him longer. Like if you were to compare it to Zeke's obliviousness
I feel like it just takes ra longer because he’s always thinking about other things. like his gaydar isn’t bad he just he don’t always see what’s going on right around him because he’s looking to the future and the big picture of things.
Yeah I know the lead is dragging and the halter is tied badly, I fixed it, let’s just skip that convo and talk about how Toto’s feet are twice as big as Zeke’s and the hilarious difference in face shape
