Mercy -Raid at Stohess ②-
Lots of Mr. K. this week – even if those are ani-original scenes, I’m ok with it. (well, duh…)
The trio’s hiding underground while Annie is closing in. A flashback is shown on how this operation was planned out. Eren gets pinned under some rubbles after the tunnel collapsed. Mikasa, Armin and Jean go to buy some time for Eren. Eren transforms. Titans battle begins (or resumes)
SCENE(S) COUNT (of Mr. K.):
1. in the meeting (during the flashback)
in the 2nd half
2. unwiggs, and goes off to help out
3. his speech to Eren
4. swings around on 3dmg
5. witnesses another Eren titan transformation
Since he was with Armin the whole time (almost) during the expedition, he’s the only one within the 104th graduates (aside from Mikasa) that can be trusted 100%. A minor spoiler note: the others are at some place “safe” So they really thought he was Eren? I think the added scenes also show Jean’s changed perception of the MP.
end card of episodeIt’s so nice to see the full cast of the show all together. It has some behind-the-scenes feel to it – like “actors” posing for a group picture; even those who are dead in the story.
I like how they have added the extra material. I do hope these are results of Isayama’s involvement in the anime. They’ve filled in the gap – mostly as to where was Jean during this whole operation. Because while the audience are to find out (in chapter 34) that the other 104th top 10s are being confined in a house somewhere far away from the action, Jean’s whereabouts aren’t mentioned in the manga at all. It is nice to see his participation in the operation – as it also shows how much he’s changed since the very beginning of the story. The scene where he was trying to get Eren to wake up? (yes, I know that’s ani-ori) That wouldn’t have happened in episode 4.
So next week it’s a farewell to half a year of SnK action (anime). They’ve done a great job this week, so hopefully next week’s episode will match or exceed it. Oh right, I also hope they will get to the bedroom scene…
my definition of “great episode” definitely has something to do with this blog’s standpoint regarding Mr. K. appearances..
I trust that pixiv members will draw something of this episode, and yes they did, and didn’t disappoint!

It’s almost like Jean’s asking for permission from mom and dad, and guess who’s the mom and who’s the dad…
next episode is 25
They aren’t showing any actual footages of the next episode in the preview. So we won’t know how far in the manga they’ll get to. (and Mr. K. chances of being in it remains 50/50 as a result.)
