AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. It’s over. NOOOOOOOO. Insert sad face emoji here. Okay, got that out of my system. I feel better, somewhat.
So, Attack on Titan season 2, the final three episodes. I am late. I put it off. I didn’t want to watch them, knowing that that was it until next year. I am sad, but also, really like…angry. Because freaking cliffhangers!! Here’s the breakdown of the final three episodes. As well as my reaction to them.
Episode 35 – Children
More Ymir backstory. More Ymir trying to make a freaking decision. Something it appears she is not very good at. She’s a flip-flopper. I almost lost count of how many times she switched sides and convinced herself why she was making those decisions. In the end, I still don’t think she fully understands why she does what she does. Except Christa. All Christa.
Episode 36 -Charge
Freaking Captain Erwin. That man. He is the epitome of I will die in battle because I will not ever stop trying to reach my objective. And his objective? Save Eren. And at this point, I was still going, “why the heck is Eren so important?” But now I know, and now I understand why Erwin was still fighting and leading the charge after having his arm bit off by a titan! I love Charge because it seems to be so pointless. ‘Everyone charge and save one person, and it doesn’t matter how many people die, as long as Eren lives!’ But in the end, it’s not pointless. Because it’s the lead up to learning a Very Important Thing.
Episode 37 – Scream
Holy cow. So that is why he’s so important! Trying to avoid spoilers if you haven’t seen it, but man. Eren is so much more than the weak little man he thinks he is. And here is where he finds that out. I can’t wait to see what else he can do, and how he works it to his advantage.
Also, I love, LOVE that Eren’s “I’ll wrap that around you as many times as you want. Now and forever, As much as you want.” is code for, “I love you Mikasa!” It made my heart happy for them. The framing was beautifully done as well, a confession in the middle of a battlefield full of titans.
So, my take? Lots of things will be revealed in Season 3. I need to read the manga. I can’t wait another year. Eren and Mikasa are relationship goals. I love this anime!
