So things have dramatically changed.

Never trust a blonde boy in a nazi theme era!

There goes the modern world theory. I'm glad that didn't happened because I hated it. But, was it actually a devil or is that just propaganda? Because there is no way they had biochemistry 1700 plus years ago right? They are just getting into fossil fuels after all.

Gamechanging level chapter here. This was an amazing chapter. I kept on feeling like the author changed way too much because of fans and anime adaptation, but this feels like one of the good old original stuff he was talking about. Love it.

I actually thought it was the mordern world and a dystopia came along. I love dystopias.

Could definitely be some form of biochemistry. I mean the memories of the kings are passed down over the generations, right? Perhaps the 'devil' was from an earlier era. Definitely interested in knowing more.

Now that... Was a brilliant chapter. A flashback done right. I now forgive the whole political intrigue and stuff, because this feels like a huge missing block that explains just so much.

I... Forget why they're in prison though?

13 year lifespans!!! Mikasa doesn't have much time to ride her horsey. Ah, that was too crude.

Man I like the Warriors and all but by now their backstory feels like it's been dragging on. I hope the Walldians come back into play soon

Remember that fan theory that Eren was that crippled dude and was about to go rampage mode? Yeah, me neither.

I just wonder what all this back info will serve later on. Is it just pathos so when Reiner dies, we will weep?

I still smell extension shenanigans. Shingeki came out a lean mean harrowing machine when it first started, now it feels unfortunately like info dumps and flasbacks, and the worst is it seems the sort of mystery the author is going for is actively withholding important facts that the reader actually want's to know. Who started this whole titan mess? How big is the wider world? Where are we even now on the timeline in relation to all these characters in the flashback and what have you? Is there anything to do to eradicate the titans or not?

I'll see if this whole manga goes down easier on a second read but to be honest I'm super lost haha.

A spin-off manga has actually been released where the characters are in a high school.

Story-wise though, Shingeki no Kyoujin has changed perspective to outside of the island and the mysteries are being revealed one by one. There still some gaps though. Ymir's character disappeared during the timeskip, Annie's crystallized titan was never mentioned again, and how did they fill the walls with titans?

Even the manga Before the Fall doesn't have much answers.

Yeah I'm definitely lost on the SnK front. I think it's a trend that just won't stop. I actually thought leaving the wall would be the end-game, but yikes the world got a lot bigger, and it feels a lot like the author is padding the story with unecessary stuff, but I guess I'll just have to see what happens...

Daaamn dat time-skip though. That's a biggie

Did I mention Mikasa looks badass? SnK has left me in the dust in terms of trying to convince me about it being a horror-like manga, but I'm looking forward to what comes along next.

Well Eren has straight up become a terrorist, and even in the middle of that soul gnawing experience - Mikasa crying hit me in the feels - And the epicness of the new and improved 3DMG, they're suddenly outnumbered like this. Damn. SnK has no chill.

I really hope the political intrigue has done all it wanted. That was a good 40 chapters or so? Of flashbacks and historical exposition and a freaking time skip too if you could imagine it. We're a far way from the start, but I think we're back to the good old tragic murderverse that SnK started out as.

Surprisingly, this chapter was quite good even though it was a flashback. It put a lot of things into perspective.

well I caught up finally today. no idea at all what's going on. Eren is even more emo than before, the flashbacks are killing my sense of when everything is happening and oh lost a comic relief character. that's war for you. I need an in-line timeline for these events >_<
But despite that it's still gripping with story and emotions and stuff. great graphics as always too.

Yeah I hear you. The political stuff really got in the way of the claustrophobia of the city being under siege from mysterious titans. The introduction of other lands and the stuff and this political thriller it's become really gets in the way of the horrific tension. But ah well.

And yeah, that death is still hard hitting.
