This chapter gave answers, and it’s being delivered in ways I’d have preferred. 1/3 of a chapter is all it needs. This here. with Eren and some an arm and a shoe and him yelling “aaaaaa” is him after consuming his daddy, (we are to assume)
1 month 2 weeks and 7 ? days ; it’s been jumping back and forth, I think we are still on the same day!
(Mr. K.) Panels count: 5 (no complains, really)
Synopsis of chapter: The new leaders go before the public to give an announcement. Erwin gives some thoughts which might surprise some of us. Hange tells Levi's squad about her research findings on the Reiss family. Papa Reiss and Historia together unlock some memories for/from Eren.
Some had complained about the lack of Eren and Historia’s side of the story for the past few chapters – because it is believed questions will be answered if the focus are over there. Now this chapter we have (more than one) pages devoted to that side of the story, and a sudden burst of mysterious images flashed through in a matter of pages. A half and half deal I guess, a lot seems to have been answered, but some identities will have to be identified. Who was that female titan in the flashback? I would’ve thought it’s one of the Reiss who turned in defences from the intruder.
From, what’s been told from Hange, and a guess from those images, and that last page. Seems like Papa Yeager killed Reiss’ family – or else why’d Rod say something about “(Eren) Your father’s sin”.
I have to say again how I liked they didn’t use the whole chapter for the EreHisRod scene and still manage to answer some (literally) age old questions.
Jean said nothing? Oh yes he did, he said “understood!”. I am fine with him being okay and be with the group. (at least the haters can be shut up for a while) It is obvious now 57-58-59 was a mini-arc focusing on the humanistic aspect of the story – which has always been a sub-plot and/or underlying theme of the story anyways. It just happened Jean, along with Armin and Levi, were the ones chosen by Isayama to deliver that. Similar to chapter 18…
So he mentions “heichou”, “Armin”, and “SL”. Interesting choices, and the ordering… No, please not let this be fuel to anything.
