This is one of those times that the anime is better than the manga.

Really? I'm for the manga all the way. What wasn't so good?

In any case I've seen the spinoffs for this, so i'm going to try them out. Not sure if they belong to the same mangaka though

The manga looked kind of messy to my eyes... after watching the clean and outrageousness of two human titans battling it out... what was it... still wins with one arm and a mouth?

Outrageous.

I find it awesome when characters fight with no arms (or the full use of their body) and still go at it with all they have. Like Alexander Anderson in the Hellsing OVA or Zabuza in Naruto.

Anderson was a character man. Zabuza truly embodied the old school shinobi spirit of naruto. Before it became DBZ

http://en.rocketnews24.com/2014/10/10/is-attack-on-titans-armin-actually-a-girl-the-series-creator-seems-to-think-so/

First it was Hanji, and now Armin might turn out to be an unexpected gender... This writer is seriously trying to screw with his audience!

Armin will always be Armin. Just like Mikasa's abs will always be Mikasa's abs.

I failed to follow the chapter after seeing that nasty torture...

Eren sure took his sweet time to react though. And to think that his father was bad through and through

Just read chapter 65... I'm so lost T_T Can somebody explain what is going on?

I'll have a go at it...but in all honesty, I was confused by it too  :o

So, the last chapter ended with Kenny the Ripper all of a sudden showing up at the cave with Eren, Historia, and Rod Reiss, and seemed to have plans to want to eat Eren and steal the Titan's Power, thereby screwing the Reiss Family over. So then this chapter wanted to start by explaining Kenny's desire to steal the power and screw over the Reiss Family with a flashback, in which it is explained that tensions were growing between the royal family and the Ackermans as well as the "Asian" race. The royal family feared these two groups of people (Ackermans and Asians) because their memories could not be altered because they did not originate from the majority race. Rather, the Ackermans and Asians were considered part of the minority races. Side note: Don't know if you noticed but Mikasa is both Ackerman and Asian, meaning she's double the badass^^.

Because of these tensions between the royal family and the Ackermans, Kenny comes along and basically tries to ruin Rod's plans. He tries to turn Historia against her own father and he even tries to turn Eren into a titan to give him a fighting chance. Of course the whole history between Kenny and Rod Reiss hasn't been revealed yet because there is still some connection between Kenny and Rod's brother "Uri" that still needs to be explained.

Anyways Kenny tries to help Eren but Eren, being the dumbass/damsel-in-distress that he is, prevents himself from turning into a titan and asks Historia to eat him. I'm thinking this is because he feels guilty for his father's actions of taking the power from the Reiss family but what both Eren and Historia (for who knows what reason) don't realize is that her *censored*ty family has done nothing to save humanity with the titan power and that is why Eren's father forcefully took the power from the Reiss family. So while Eren is feeling guilty about all the people who died because of him and his father, Historia is over here injecting herself with some next-level drugs. She turns into a titan and well...I guess, *censored* is about to go down. Great chapter overall but it bothers me that Historia is portrayed as such an air head. I would have thought she'd be smarter. Hope this terribly long rant made sense to you  :thumbsup:
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

That's pretty much what I got from the chapter. Nice explanation.

Eren is a side-character masquerading as a protagonist. I hope he's eaten. He'll probably taste like chicken *badum-tiss

Haha not a fan then Lego?

SnK seems to be losing it's focus to me... although that may be just because we are lucky if we see a new release every 2 months...

Well they've actually made a big reveal and i'm enjoying the battle, but yeah it would've been nice if there were more expeditions outside the wall, but like they said humanity needs to deal with its politics first before venturing out there again

True but it feels like the Titans have just disappeared for the time being...
