**MAJOR MANGA Spoilers: just another rant by me only click if you've read atleast past chapter 10**


To reiterate, after episode 5, this anime will now officially hit Filler Fields. Prepare to experience episodes consisting of 75% unneccessary flashbacks, and 25% dialogue that gets repeated constantly by the characters that contributes little to the situation, especially after the 5th or so times of hearing it. I'm not hating, Im just saying do not get your hopes up, the whole situation atm wont even get anywhere until episode 8.
Srsly I cant stress this enough, there are even freakin' times where charavters LITERALLY say "Im going to tell you story about something un-character-defining about my past in a moment". No, I am not exagurating. And when they say 'in a moment' they mean they'll randomly start talking about it in the middle of an avtion sequence or actual plot movement just to slow down the pacing even further -_-

Ok Im becoming just as repetitive as the characters in my post, so I will emphasise what several of the episodes will be like in one more prose...
Most of the future episodes will be like this, replace numbers with characters and objects with wtv situation theyre currently facing.

E,
1: I've got a glass of water
2: a glass of water you say?
1: yes a glass of water in my hand
2: oh I aee the glass of water in your hand
3: hey I just got here whats up
1: I have a glass of water
2: Its true I saw it
3: I dont understand
1: Look
3: Oh I see now, its a glass of water
2: Not only that but he is holding the glass of water, in his hand no less
3: How did you get the glass of water
1: well
*15 mins of flashback of how 1 got a glass of water*
3: Cool story bro
2: So thats how you came across the glass of water
1: Yes, I got the glass of water cuz I was thirsty
2: Thirsty you say?
1: Yes, remember the flashback? Here I'll show you again incase you forgot
*shows the flashback but faster, the way it should have been shown in the first damn place*
4: I can see you got the glass of water you are holding to drink to clench your thirst (yes there will be atleast one character who somehow understands everything just by looking, -_-, e.g the boat dude in episode 2)
2: I think I'll get a glass of water too
1: No dont do it! Clenching my thirst is my sole duty
3: Erm, im pretty sure our thirst is just as vital
1: Okay fine.
2: We have our glasses of water
3: Yup
1: Awesome....oh I suppose we should actually drink them
Spoiler: They wont...not until just before the end of the episode, and you wont even get to see them finish it all

*Next episode*
1: Wait...so how did you two get your glasses of water just now.
2: Lol well..its a long and unneccessary story
3: Erm, guys there are bloody titans here maybe this isnt the best tim-
Etc.

Ya you're right, it'll probably be another 2 or 3 eps.

Anyone else who read the manga notice that they actually did put one of the biggest flashbacks in chronological order?
To alo the anime watchers: the entire episodes where it shows Eren and co. in military school, that was actually meant to happen in one giant flashback like 12 episodes from now, but it seems they decided to put it in chronological order instead and thats pretty good. Although they did omit a lot of stuff so no doubt the flashbacks will still be there.

On the bright side, unlesa the anime screws the pooch: I'm actually really looking forward to the 'Scout Arc'. It has minimal flashbacks, good drama and pretty intense fight scenes.

thanks, but i forgot an integretal part!

2: Wait guys...I cant
3: What?
2: I...I dont think I'm capable of drinking the glass of water
1: But why
2: Ever since that time 5 years ago...*flashback, dialogue dialogue*
1: You can do it 2 just believe in yourself
2: You're right
*In ANY OTHER ANIME*
2: I did it!
*IN THIS ANIME*
2: *drowns whilst trying to drink his water

The best flashbacks imo are when its just a picture, no dialogue, and there are hints within the moment that dictate everything. A picture is worth 1000 words in 3 seconds. Attack on Titans glashbacks consist of 1000 words over 15 mins

That is the most moe-titan I have ever seen. lol

I'm probably the only one, but its getting kinda tiring for the humans to die so easily... It wouldn't be so bad if they got to kill at least one or two of the monsters before they get decimated.

Theres only so much annihilation-festish material I can take before I start doing the jackie chan why emote. lol

Agreed. I know what happens but still I'm like, "OK, here is where the humans fight back, yeah!" and then I say "...ohhhhhhhhhh..... that HAD to HURT! Won't be fighting back this episode I guess. So much for all the equipment and training, the humans still suck..."

I know, I know what's coming, I know... but while you're watching it there is still faint hope... that is dashed like a ship upon the rocks...

my idea on the situation is arwin or miskasa will come our of no were and save him like eren did with arwin u saw the titan close its mouth with eren just looking at it but then next scene eren is over there pulling him out maybe arwin or mikasa will kill it? or maybe he will go rambo and kill it from the inside seeing as he wasnt particually instantly killed by being chomped in half cannot wait to see what happens
