While still waiting for images regarding the final form of Eren jaeger, Attack the titans actively rests on the aftermath of the destruction of the walls. The rumble was one of the threats proposed several chapters ago, in other seasons, and the anime he takes his time sizing it up. Although it seems lack of action, especially when compared to the beginning of this second part of the finale, there can be some complaints.
If it is recognized as a space for dramatic development, the feeling is that there is not much to question. Shingeki no Kyojin It has been characterized by this type of sections, a pause after the action. The difference, in relation to other moments, is that the consequences of the combats and the warlike decisions resonate more clearly in these latest episodes. While the life within the walls had some blue flashes in the sky, from the rumble everything is reddish, orange and black, as if hell has settled inside them.
This new context, without artificial borders, released different conflicts on Paradis Island. There are no controls or hierarchy. A nonsense that runs through all the characters of Attack the titans. They make decisions driven by fear, uncertainty and personal interests, leaving behind the belonging and commitment that has marked much of the anime so far.
Eren was presented with the powers of the Founding Titan promising to save the inhabitants of the paradise island. The region in which he grew up and for which he fought to achieve the freedom that he did not have for thousands of years. That was the proposal, materialized in the destruction of the walls. But the result is less idyllic than proposed. Where before there were houses, now there are ruins. The streets where people used to walk now have dead bodies. The landscape that previously had green details now only offers destruction, the threat of the march of the Colossal Titans and bloody tones.
The first few minutes ofSunset” showed the consequences of Eren’s decision, in key landscape, and also from a human perspective. The inhabitants mention it as a reference. While others question his methods: his actions killed people he was supposed to protect. People lost their homes and relatives. Pain and uncertainty. The horror begins to be seen from different perspectives, through well-composed detailed and panoramic shots.
In the beginning, the rumble was told from the gaze of armin and my house. They, Eren’s friends, tried to understand her decision and began to recognize its effects. Now that context Attack the titans it is seen by those who do not have as much power of action, the inhabitants of Paradis Island to those who are outside the island and whom the Colossal Titans are going to chase. The victims.
The return of Annie Leonhart
to Attack the titans
The end of Shingeki no Kyojin begins to close the stories of the characters that were key during the first seasons. The anime narrows down the historical aspects, the plot connections, and doesn’t get in the way of particular stories. During “Sunset”, the focus was put on Annie Leonhart. After being frozen for four years, she came out of her ice chest due to Eren undoing the hardenings of the titans.
Until this chapter, it was not clear if her time had passed the same as the case of the other people and titans. The answer is yes. Annie sustained a degree of consciousness that allowed her to hear Armin’s voice, for example. Then her origin story was revealed, from the abandonment to the training of the one who would become her father and who is now leading the claims in Marley to organize an escape in the face of Eren’s threat.
What will be Annie’s role within this context of Attack the titans? His character seemed indifferent to the proposals of others. The discovery of her caused her to freeze. Now free of mandates and hierarchy, she is left to figure out what her role will be in the current chaos that is Attack the titans. as it happened with Reiner and BertholdtAnnie is also a victim of that spiral of hatred that has been fomented for years between the inhabitants of Marley and the paradise island. That social segmentation that brought the story to this point, in which one of the forces wants the extermination of the other in this season finale of Attack the titans.
Armin and Mikasa’s vulnerability
(and the Legion)
As Eren’s body has disappeared from the frames and the Colossal Titans advance after him, Armin and Mikasa try to pick up the pieces of reality and the bond that held the three. armin he looks for a route to follow and discovers that there is no greater certainty. The chain of command does not exist in Attack the titans. Connie travels with Falco to where her mom is so she can eat him so Connie can get a family member back from her. Armin will travel to him, to try to convince him that this is not the ideal plan.
my house, that girl capable of doing any type of action with the maneuver team, a woman without fear, now seems hopeless. She doesn’t drop an idea, as her emotional world collapses. She goes to Armin looking for an option and finds an impressive moment of honesty: “you can think for yourself”, in the words of his partner. Then he goes back to look for his scarf, that link with Eren, and it’s gone, as if it’s a link with them.
Armin seems to be clear about something: in the new context of Attack the titans, Gaby and Falco they are essential because they serve as a bridge to the other titans raised on Marley. Within a scenario in which certainties do not abound, being able to group the largest number of titans can be vital during the outcome.
On the other hand, Shingeki no Kyojin he allows himself to sustain the mirror effect that he proposes through Gabi and Falco: they are like Eren, Armin and Mikasa, only raised from the other side of the sea. Their fears are the same, although they name them differently. In the meantime, floch and Jean They try to give some order to the pulse between the Jaegerist faction and the Legion. barbarism advances Shingeki no Kyojin and from the forest comes news about two characters who can give some criteria in the face of chaos: hange and especially Levi.
