THOUGHTS ON SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN S2: EPISODE 4!
Sorry this is coming late but I was quite busy and got sick (I’m still feeling sick ;;) so.. that’s why ;; Anyway I wanted to do this as soon as possible!
A list of things I enjoyed having in the fourth episode:
- Action <3
- The animation looked super good in this episode <3
- Nanaba, Gelgar, Henning and Lynne <3
- Ymir’s comments and her laugh <3
- The -I’m gay and so are you- scene I’ve been waiting for <3
- That scene where a creepy titan is breaking the door behind Reiner :3
- Reiner’s past
- Reiner, Ymir, Bertolt, Christa and Connie vs titan
-Reibert, ReinerxBertolt moments
- Reiner saving Connie from a titan
- Reiner carrying that titan to the window (I always wanted to see this part animated)
- Reiner’s “Gotta marry her” and Ymir being jealous of Christa XD
- The death of Henning and Lynne. I didn’t enjoy the characters dying but it was satisfying to see how well they made the scene. For some reason I really liked the part when Nanaba and Gelgar had their bodies in their arms and were like “It’s no use. They both died instantly” and the kids looked so shocked. Idk the scene is just perfect and the music fits so well! o-o
- Nanaba and Gelgar being heroes and fighting till the end.
- Seriously all those 3DMG scenes look so good!
- The death of Nanaba and Gelgar. I loved them so it was sad to see them going once again (I read the manga so I’ve been through the same before ;;) but there are things I’d like to point out from the anime version:
They showed how Gelgar hit his head against the tower’s wall when the titan pulled him out from the room through a hole. Apparently he broke his neck at that point or at least fell unconscious so he was already “dead” before the titans started eating him. I don’t remember seeing this in the manga.
I felt slightly shocked to hear Nanaba screaming “No! No! Father, stop! Father! I’m sorry! I won’t do it again! Father! No!” because that added so much more to the character. Only some lines that were added to her death in the anime. Anime really can change how we see things.. I am quite sure that Nanaba got abused by her father for whatever reason and it makes this just sadder. We got a touch of her past in her last moment ;; </3 I repeat, this wasn’t in the manga so that’s why I wasn’t waiting for this to happen and it shocked me. I love Nanaba <3
- Lastly the scene I waited the most for.. Ymir turning into a titan! This has been one of my really super favorite scenes from the manga for a long time so being able to see it animated.. finally.. is something.. so.. *is speechless* <3 Also Ymir’s titan is my favorite one and I love Ymir too <3
- Yumikuri <3 YmirxChrista <3
To be honest this is my favorite episode from season 2 so far! Everything looked so damn good! Can’t wait for the next episode because it will be full of Yumikuri and the dancing titan <3
I missed EMA and others though but we might see them in the next episode! <3
