The most recent ep though, what do you think about it? And I'm up to date with the manga btw.
I loved it and I cried lol. Ymir’s scenes got me all emotional.
I really wasn’t expecting for them to show the whole thing, even after having seen the preview. I thought maybe they would add just a bit, enough to foreshadow and leave people wondering or something, so they could give the full version later on future seasons. But whoa, they gave us everything and more. And it was amazing!
I personally am happy with their choice. I thought I would have to wait years to see this in anime form, so it was a gift. And I believe it makes sense to put it there, it helps anime watchers understand Ymir much better.
Everything (or almost everything, because episode 28 was just…) they have added or modified from the original during this season has made me think that they have put a lot of thought on how they’re doing things. Isayama’s involvement is clear, but I think it’s obvious that the whole anime team are doing their best too.
This has made me more hopeful about the possibility of future seasons. I believe that the fact that they’re putting this much effort and even rearranging stuff that appeared so recently in the manga means they have long term plans. Let’s hope nothing gets in the way.
The rest of the episode was nice. Eren vs Reiner was hilarious, especially because Ymir and Bertholdt were basically there paying zero attention to them and casually chatting, and you could see Eren’s legs kicking the air in the background haha.
I was happy to see Annie even if it was a flashback. Erwin was as handsome as always. The scene with Ymir taking Historia was very well done.
It was a good episode. But I missed Levi… badly.
But well, we knew this would happen. At least we got to see Eren being beautiful many times during the episode, and I am always grateful for that!
