I am about 2 years late to the party, but I've finally started watching Attack on Titan.
IT'S SO GOOD! Too many feels but I can't stop watching!
I'll be sharing my thoughts on each episode as I watch the show, so you can relive the experience with me. Or if you haven't watched it yet, you can watch along with me as I update this collection. Attack on Titan Review
That Day: The Fall of Shiganshina, Part 2
Episode Summary (from Wikipedia)
Hannes apologizes to Eren for not saving his mother, admitting he was afraid of the Titan and that both Eren and Mikasa are still weak children. Some of the Shiganshina townsfolk escape to the inner Wall Maria while the soldiers try to hold off the Titans. The soldiers try to close the gate, but one of the Titans (later named Armored Titan) rams the gate, breaching Wall Maria, and causing those inside to retreat even further inside Wall Rose. Some time later, Eren has a strange dream in which his grieving father forcefully gives him an injection and his key before being woken up by Mikasa. Eren grows disgusted with the people of Wall Rose as the latter do not like sharing their food with the refugees. During the next year, as a food shortage becomes apparent, the government orders the refugees to work at the farms or fight to reclaim Wall Maria. About 250,000 people, 20% of the populace, go but they are wiped out by the Titans. Eren vows revenge and joins the army along with Mikasa and Armin.
My thoughts as I watched this episode:
>>> This opening theme will never get old!
>>> Still not over the mom's death T.T
>>> I am so terrified for the people on that ship…
>>> ARE THEY SERIOUSLY CLOSING THE GATE ON ALL THOSE PEOPLE? WTH
>>> That giant muscular Titan came out of nowhere...
>>> And did he just…breathe fire? WHAT.
>>> Random council of inner wall people…alright.
>>> So the Titans took down two of the three walls? DAMN.
>>> Eren flashbacks…FEELS…so many FEELS.
>>> YASSSS Eren! You go dude! Kill em all!
>>> The Titans ate 10,000 people in 1 year. HOLY SHET.
>>> Yay, the dad is alive!
>>> Wait, what's the dad doing? Oh…just a dream…
>>> THE KEY. HOW DID IT GET THERE? Not a dream then?!
>>> Armin, why are you so nice??
>>> Rude inner wall people. SMH (Gave me Hunger Games vibes)
>>> Eren, love your spirit but you say the dumbest things sometimes. Armin just saved you!
>>> Good one Mikasa, he deserved that punch.
>>> They sacrificed refugees for food…250,000 of them...T.T
>>> LOL yea Eren, Mikasa is joining the army with you because you need her to stop you from doing dumb things.
"People are crazy for believing that these walls will protect us forever. Even though the walls have been intact for the past 100 years, there’s nothing that can guarantee they won’t be broken down today…"
- Armin Arlelt
Not nearly as intense as the first episode but I am really excited to see what comes next!
