C68

68-00So that’s how he’d look if he’s an old man. Putting that aside, I wonder if we will see a non-red shirt death by the end of this arc – just like the many season finales I’ve been watching.
Realise it’s almost time for chapter 69, but, this is the entry for chapter 68. Whaaa…? Few more weeks, then I hope to get back on schedule with these entries.

Synopsis of chapter: Team effort; but mostly with Eren shoving explosives into big titan's mouth (that would be Rod), culminates with Historia doing something that's been obscured by lines, and then proclaiming herself to be the rightful ruler of the walls.

How perfect’s the timing. Seems like this arc can finally be wrapped up by chapter 70 (alright, I am typing this while chapter 69’s on the horizon). I guess it’s season finale time for all. This chapter is one of those where a lot seem to happened, but really there isn’t. I could have put up an even shorter synopsis than the one I have here: “Historia did a cut on Rod titan. All characters that we might/should care about are safe.” Poor Eren got neglected totally, at least that’s what I felt after reading the chapter. Now of course we should get some closure on Kenny and maybe the after math of Historia’s ascension to royalty. This of course is guessing upon spoilers pictures I have seen thus far for ch. 69.
So some of use were very worry about casualties of our beloved characters during the conclusion to this uprising arc. Turns out (90% probability) that will not happen, unless Isayama pulls something in 69 and 70. (70 should very likely be the end of the 17th volume btw)

and now that the digital media of the 1st summary movie’s been released, I can finally update the “latest anime appearance” listing on the sidebar.
