Getting closer to July 9th, hopefully there will be (good) answer to the question some fans have been asking over and over again for the past month.
Will it be Armin who does the save (again). He has technically saved/protected Jean at least twice, as people have mentioned. Although…if we put it in other way, Jean seems to had pretty crap luck whenever he’s teamed with Armin? …which I won’t complain, as long Armin’s also the one who helped him out at the end.
I think many have forgotten that Jean’s in trouble here because he went to protect Armin in the first place. But anyways…
Yep, he was with Armin, and a titan somehow fell on him. Must be coincidence.
Armin’s driving the carriage, Jean’s on it. Off all people, Jean’s chosen to be on there. Now we have to wait and see how this ends in chapter 59.
Not a scientific observation – though one has to wonder if those are what Isayama’s planned for these two in terms of their friendship and such. Do hope to see this for many more chapters to come, but wish the roles can be reversed sometime – or maybe not, I think Jean’s life will be in much great danger if Isayama plans for him to really managed to save Armin somewhere down the story.
OAD 3’s cover. Enough said. On an interview (I think it was from animage june 2014 issue ? ), the producer mentioned it will be completely anime original material; and “Eren, Mikasa, and Armin will look slightly younger than in the main story” ?…so they’ll have to do some new characters design style sheets? But from this cover, Eren looks the same. oh well.
Editor’s reaction to upcoming chapter is “おっ!”…that basically says nothing. It can be a “Oo! That’s it? That’s how you send him off? Just like that?”, or “Oo! so THAT person .. “. Of course I’d prefer the second thing to happen; and as much as I hate to see some character leave, after nearly a month, that cliffhanger effect has died off quite a bit.
