Chapter 83 of Attack the titans (Shingeki no Kyojin) answered one of the most constant questions among viewers who have followed the story through anime: what happened to Levi? At previous episode one of the main suspicions came true: he was still alive. “Pride” described the story of him and hange after both escaped from the Jaegerist faction. His reincorporation into the story is also the restructuring of forces.
After a handful of chapters in which the adaptation answered without buts, episode 83 left some doubts about it. This becomes evident in the transitions between different moments. It is understood that there are time jumps in the story. However, the transition from one point to another was abrupt in the handling of the color palette, even in the type of drawing. More than an aesthetic critique, it is a narrative questioning: details like these distract the viewer, within an anime that, because of his wealth, he cannot afford such carelessness.
The picture of Eren jaeger become the Founding Titan still undisclosed and Shingeki no Kyojin is responsible for maintaining the expectation in relation to his figure. Therefore Pieck Finger he asked Hange, “Did you see the Founding Titan?” to which she replied, “I know it’s huge.” The title of the chapter, “Pride”, could be summed up in the decision of Connie Springer in relation to Falcon. But also in how the different parties involved in the conflict, both Marley as of the paradise islandthey decide to lay down their ego in favor of a bigger plan: trying to stop Eren.
Levi returns to the game in Shingeki no Kyojin
Before and during the activation of The RumbleHange took care of Levi. Ella, a titan specialist, attributes her ability to resist to her lineage. Captain Ackerman awakens from his healing sleep and the first thing he is interested in is the Beast Titan, whom he promised to kill. His greatness seems marred, his hand partially mutilated and his bandaged face is enough to present the seriousness of his condition. However, his will is still intact: where is zeke?
Attack the titans takes us back to the moment when Theo Magath and Pieck Finger they converse with Hange and Levi. The meeting could have resulted in some kind of pulse or in the surrender of one for the others. But no. It resulted in the first meeting of what would later be an alliance between the forces that oppose the Jaeger faction and Eren’s interests as the Founding Titan.
Judging by Levi’s initial reaction to zekeIt is clear that this relationship between the two will have at least one more chapter, with the promise of death on the table.
The growth of Connie Springer
Driven by desperation, Connie kidnapped Falco to let her mom eat it and thus be able to bring her back to her human form. armin and Gabi went after him, catching up with him just in time, when Connie is moments away from delivering the child. Between one and another moment there are a series of factors to take into account.
From the horseback ride between Connie and Falco to that conversation before the titan in which the former’s mother became, he recognized goodness and nobility in the child. That initial impulse, coming from fear and desperation, was fragmented due to the human quality of the youngest.
Falco, as already happened with Gabi, is capable of molding the character and decisions of others without intending to. It is enough for him to be himself so that those around him recognize what they were losing between so many fights, manipulations and spirals of hatred. In this context, Armin returns to the ghosts of him, the feeling that he should not have survived but Erwin Smith. That’s why she tries to cover the space that Connie tries to fill with Falco.
Armin’s decision uncovered a sense of humanity that seemed lost in the other character. So it was easier to approach an ideal of his mother: to be the best possible soldier. From there it is explained that, at the end of the episode of Attack the titanswith several of the allies, went for Reiner to summon him and, in Connie’s words, go “to save the world”.
