“Oh **** this I’ll do it myself”
And with that, death flags just got redistributed.
Just to be clear, this chapter’s actually a mini-rewind – it explains who’s that titan at the end of previous chapter (65).
Timestamp: 1 month 2 weeks and 7 ? days ; is this longer than Trost battle yet?
(Mr. K.) Panels count: 14 (everyone in the 104th gets to say something )
Synopsis of chapter: Call her rebellious, or wised up. Historia proves she can make her own decision after reflecting on her memories of her sister and what Ymir had said to her. Rod decides to take up the role himself. The gang arrives just in good time to help Eren escape. Eren faces a deja-vu of "forest of big trees".
. One of those slower chapters – considering this being the last chapter of a volume (16) – unless they decide to squeeze five into one. Oh hey Ymir, long time no see, even though this seems more like an imagery from Historia. The princess has been portrayed as easily manipulated and possibly naïve, which turned off a lot of readers. Sort of a surprise Isayama decided to change that in this chapter. On the other hand, what’s with Eren back to being pep-talked by his normal peers (horseface, girl on fire, and monkey)?
The flip side to Mr. Reiss using himself as the vessel is that he might become just another villain of the arc character. Perhaps he will take a few along with him to the graveyard. Sounds familiar. Now add to that the gang might gain new ally – though I am not sure how the reconciliation will be done. I think we can sort of guessed how each would respond to that.
Poll results come next chapter / month. Even though we all expect some to be in the top 3 – don’t think there will be much surprise.
Let me add frequent snowfall is perfect excuse for updating (blog) less.
