Wow they completely butchered the smile she had in the manga, the episode is called "smile" not "laugh" >.<

For those interested in how it looked in the manga here you go http://i.imgur.com/ZiiU5dL.jpg
Yeah. and it really frustrates me. The anime portrayed her completely different than the manga.



Yes, that was the main gripe I had with the adaptation of this part of the manga. It detracted the whole tension that it built up. The smile would have been perfect and enough. The giggling and blushing, a bit out of character for her. Although, I like that it went that route nonetheless and chose a different approach, but still...

Just no. Also they split up her speech with Marlo and the rest into smaller parts, which I also didn't particularly like, but the filler in between was nice. Not needed, but something different.

Overall episodes 22 and 23 were alright, but a bit awkward in execution and the like. I would have done it a bit differently.

Not a manga reader but I'm sure I got this. So after seeing this episode and everything clicked (I knew about Annie since episode 18 but I'm sure I also figured who the Armored Running Back Titan is ). I just realized there's been a huge spoiler under our noses the whole time.



That's the only thing that makes sense here to me. Still, Annie was no surprise at all. If you're a manga reader and I'm wrong, just tell me I'm wrong. Please.

Ah, thank you. Well, I wasn't expecting that! I'll read the manga after episode 25 airs but I just wanted to be confirmed about those other 4. And thinking about it now. God, it was so obvious the whole time in retrospect.



Gah! Thank you yet somehow I feel like an idiot for not seeing the obvious beforehand.

Episode 23
The superior officers in the military police really are useless and corrupt.

Knew something was up with Annie's ring.At first I thought they needed some type of metal to transform because of the lighting striking whenever they turn to titans.Since metal conduct electricity.

Eren's escape plan was just fake to capture Annie.

Annie's laughing XD.She sounds so crazy and psychotic.I loved it :)


What a cliffhanger,feels just like the cliffhangers from early in the anime when it was actually amazing.Can't wait for next weeks episode.

On a completely other note Hitch is hotttt/sexy :3!

2 episodes left pretty much rating this an 8 now instead of a 7,although the way these latest episodes have been might even push it up to a 9.

So, I have spent the last hour or so analyzing Annie's character, and I believe I can now deduce what kind of person she is. I will try to keep this manga-spoiler free.

Our first interaction with Annie is in episode 4 where all the trainees are training. Reiner points out the fact that she isn't behaving as a soldier should (the term Soldier is extremely important in this scene and the show as a whole, but I will get into that later). Reiner and Eren confront her and they have their litting sparring might. Annie then goes on to talk about the corruption of the Military Police and human nature (referring to humans' tendency to act selfishly in order to save themselves. For example, joining the Military Police to live deeper in the walls and be safe from titans instead of joining the survey corps to aid humanity). She then leaves after saying "I'm not stupid enough to enjoy playing soldier in this shitty world." Now lets fast forward to episode 23. Annie says to Armin "Why didn't I kill you?" and then afterwards says "I have failed to become a warrior." The difference between a soldier and a warrior is very important to this show, and without going into too much detail, it is brought up a lot more later on in the manga. The best explanation I could find on the different between these two words, when searching on the internet, is:
"-A Warrior fights because it is his instinct for survival; they fight for themselves, sometimes acting selfishly.
-A Soldier fights because he believes in something/a cause/for his people."
Annie is not fighting for some noble goal like Eren or that other kid in the Military Police; she is doing all of this for personal reasons (this is not a spoiler from the manga. It has not been confirmed, but this is what I have deduced from all that has happened in the anime). This is why she says she would not play soldier.

Her saying that she failed at being a warrior has a lot of meaning to it. She says this because she let Armin live in episode 17. The reason for this is first, because she only killed people who attacked her first. And second, because of what happened in episode 16 . In episode 16 when they are checking gear, Annie, Armin, and Connie talk for a little bit. In the end, Armin says something akin to "even though you are distant from others, you are actually a good person." This statement got to her. Remember how in today's episode when Armin is asking for her help she asks him "Do I really look like such a good person to you?" That is why.

Now, why does she distance herself from others? Well consider for a moment that you were in her shoes, knowing that you would eventually betray and maybe even have to kill these people. Anyone with anything resembling a heart would not be able to do what they had planned to do if they had gotten even somewhat close to those people.

So, is Annie a good person? No. But she is not necessarily a bad person either. She is simply human. She has some sort of goal, and she is willing to kill those who would otherwise kill her when she is attempting to achieve this goal. And when she failed, she can be seen crying



On another note. I have been thinking about the ending of episode 23 with Annie laughing. Her behavior changes after Mikasa explicitly states that they know she is the Female Titan. Annie knows she is now unable live safely inside the walls and has nowhere to go. She is pretty much fucked now and she knows it. The writers could have executed it better though. In the anime, she comes off as simply psycho.

it was more like an eye roll and "who DIDN'T see that coming?" than anything. I mean, we've only had 10 episodes to figure out "hey, that female titan looks ODDLY SIMILAR to Annie, doesn't it?" and then in the episode they're all super serious like it's some kind of big reveal who the female titan actually was.

Annie...wtf lol I love the expressions on their faces.
Anyway whoa the Female Titan was that woman!?
So, it was Eren and companies plan to lure her out there? That scene was pretty mysterious.

I agree with the both of you, I felt like it wasn't that clear and a bit confusing, I even watched it again because I thought I missed something. Or maybe it's just me, being dim, and not getting it :p

Yea, I agree with you here. I'll admit, I found out it was her accidentally while looking at the wikia page about the show (yea I know, spoilers, but i wasn't bothered by it). But once I read it, then saw the female titan for the first time in the anime, I thought, "yeah, it's pretty easy to tell it's Annie".
