(NecroRyu @ May 25 2013, 06:46 PM) oh man ep.8 was really awesome with a cornered Jean asking himself if he's cut to be the leader then yelled 'What?!' when 'BerserkEren' knocked 2 titans with a punch, kicking away little ones xD also we finally saw that 'Titan shooting' scene from the OP and Mikasa's moving reunion with him ^^ now his next enemies: the Garrison
Yeah I was happy to see there was some logic behind choosing Jean as leader, and that it wasn't random just for character development (though there was some of that too). Its true that because he is weaker than the other powerhouses (Mikasa, Annie, Reiner) that he'll be able to make more balanced decisions that would work for everyone.
Soooo I guess Eren did fuse with that titan then? Since it seemed like he maintained his original form within the titan body, it was almost like he was sitting in a pod controlling a mecha
Only difference was that his mind was completely taking over and the titan's physical features were overwritten as well. And yes Mikasa's reunion with him was very moving
(JCDRANZER @ May 28 2013, 03:59 PM)Episode 08 was done really well, they sped up the process quite a bit compared to it's manga counterpart, which was sort of slow, whereas in the anime it feels like it gets to the point quicker.
I'm just a little worried currently with an awful lot of twists happening in the manga, very big ones by the way and I'm worried that the manga will just end because it seems to be a pattern with quite a few series that they make an anime TV series so that it finishes just after the manga ends and attempts to cover all the material of the manga, which has been done successful in the past but this thing just seems to happen to often and I'm just a little worried that's all.
Anyways, looking forward to episode 09. I think it's more likely we'll get an anime original ending, which sucks too....
I hope not. I'd like it if they just ended the anime up to the point where they get, and continue it later on. I don't know how much they've covered and whats left, manga readers would be a better judge of that.
