It’s the same day as in the previous chapter. What is Armin doing sitting on that side? This isn’t a really action-packed chapter (unless you count the torturing as being that). Lots of new information though, courtesy of the captured central MP guy.
1 month 2 weeks and 3 days, since the start of the battle at Trost – time has slowed down
and so we’ve been going back and forth within the same day in the story.
(Mr. K.) Panels count: 10
Synopsis of chapter: Erwin as a child, had big mouth. Hange and Levi extract information from the captive. Armin thinks of a brilliant plan, though not so brill- iant in the eyes of his friends. Now looks like there will be a Queen Historia.
types his mind
No change in setting from previous chapter. For a ~40 pages chapter, it’s roughly divided into 1/3 Erwin, 1/3 new recruits, and 1/3 torture. Now we’ve seen the senior Mr. Smith and known he’s been made disappeared. Is almost everyone in the story an orphan or similar? We have Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Connie (new). Jean’s been hinted to at least having a surviving mom, and Sasha, we’ve seen his dad. Those two are considered lucky I guess. Armin’s going psycho? I know how most people like his character development, me too, but I don’t think he’s growing to be more “likeable” per se. I think I like the Armin during the FT arc the most. Oh well, if it makes for a better story for Armin to shift further, I’m fine with it. Eren and Mikasa becoming more distant to Armin – now that’s been circulating amongst some readers. Can’t be so sure of that, as that’s only been evidenced with the past two chapters. As for Jean, (subjectively speaking) these past chapters do present his friendship with Armin being more grown – not surprising as everyone’s been occupied with their own problems; saved for Sasha, but she and Armin is as much in common as oil and water?
I was bored…
Next month will be one year since the premiere of the anime (it’s been a year already?!) On that same day (April 7) is also that guy’s birthday. Hm…glad he’s still surviving in the story I suppose. lol.
