Pretty good. Thanks. The key statement is that they "may or may not be evil." There's no way to know until we learn more about them and the rationale of their society.

It was kinda of funny because the video was on whether or not they were evil, but basically all it came up with was...yeah, they could be, or they could not be. So basically, we are left in the exact same spot as we were to start...

I like how so many people try to over analyse this show when the actual content of the show does not really warrant it, it's still a shounen that does not delve into deeper concepts that people seem to think it has.

It just proves you can over analyze anything. Oh look! Belly button lint!

Yeah but people have been over-analyzing fiction even way back when stories were nothing more than spoken words told in groups. If a story gets enough people riled up, they're going to want to interpret it in the best way that relates to them personally. It's just the nature of the beast.

I just speak as an English major in which 90% of my work has relied on the ability to ass-pull multiple-page arguments from quotes and paragraphs that were never meant to be scrutinized in such a manner.

Attack on Titan is fascinating because even though it has shades of a shonen series, it touches on some broad themes based on the human condition. I think that's why people get passionate when talking about it. It's the kind of work that appeals to people on all kinds of levels. There's something for men, there's something for women (personally why I love the show), something for the military types, and something for the bleeding hearts out there.

You are right by the way! Show is Great.

From my point of view (military) there are way to many deaths and just when you get attach to them.

Did anyone thought of an anime series based on Greek Mythology when they heard the titled of this anime? I can't help but wonder if that thought ran through someone's mind. I had little thoughts about it.

Sigh. So much shit added so they can end the season at a certain point. What happened this episode? Eren can't transform for 99% of the episode and random soldiers being killed by Annie. I really wish they would have just waited until the manga was finished or close to finished before making this an anime. It would have been so much better in my opinion. Anyways, the last episode should be good at least.

The point of the anime is to promote the manga so... It can't be finished!

I just watched the preview for the last episode, and I must say it is very interesting.

When I tried watching this newest episode, it was heavily pixelated. It looked like someone recorded the episode with a video camera in a movie theater. anyone else get that?

The finale is going to be the most brutal cliffhanger ever, calling it.

Once next week hits i can finally give in and read the manga!

Episode 24

They added a lot in this episode. I dont remember reading some of it in the manga but I really like it. I enjoyed watching this segment animated although Eren is driving me nuts.

I really dont feel like rooting for Annie becuase her reasons for doing what she is doing is actually very weak and unclear. This is only part of the revelations of that which to come .

For the second season to end this way is pretty big cliffhanger lol ( for me this was the second season since Shingeki no Kyojin started in the Spring and then Summer )
