I was just talking about Lance Corporal Levi!
This entire episode of Shingeki no Kyojin is awesome and has something that just screams WHY THIS SHOW IS AMAZING. Fine, I fucking get it, THEY RIDE ON HORSES AND THEN THINGS SO EPIC YOUR BRAIN EXPLODES HAPPEN. This show. . . I just. The entire first part of the episode is Levi and Mikasa, mostly Levi, tearing the fuck out of the Feminine Titan. THEY ARE BOTH PISSED. Guys, this motherfucker moves so fast I can’t even like…screenshot this shit. I’M SERIOUSLY HE’S TOO MUCH GUYS I CAN’T. I get the Levi love right now. BECAUSE I MEAN HOW CAN YOU NOT FANGIRL THAT EPIC LEVEL OF BAMF???
Guys, I just. I don’t know how to say this other than, there is content in this episode that isn’t in the manga right? BUT YOU CAN’T. REALLY TELL. AND IT ADDS THINGS, IT’S ACTUALLY GOOD, AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT YOU HAVE NO SOUL BECAUSE THE MANGA WRITER ACTUALLY HAD THE IDEA THAT MADE IT THE MOST SAD FUCKING I JUST SHIT MY LIFE I CAN’T WHY DOES THIS I JUST MY OH GOD.
The episode really just shoves in your face that this shit is bad in the beginning. Levi and Mikasa are outraged, everyone is dying around them and they know one fucking thing: They MUST get Eren Jeagar back or humanity is FUCKED. So Mikasa moves to distract the Feminine Titan…only for her to see Levi behind her and move to attack him.
MOTHA FUCKER TAKES THIS BITCH AND CUTS THROUGH HER ARM AS SHE TRIES TO HIT HIM AND HITS HER IN THE FUCKING FACE AND MOVES SO FAST SHE CANT FUCKING CRYSTALLIZE HER BODY! LEVI IS SO…FUCKING SWAG. NO ONE IN THE UNIVERSE EVER NEEDS TO USE THE PHRASE SWAG BECAUSE IT IS DUMB BUT LEVI DOES BECAUSE IT IS JUST HIPSTER DOUCHEBAG ENOUGH TO BE COMPLETELY TRUE FOR LEVI. He just. HE’S PERFECTION. /sobs deeply/ perfecctioooon
Mikasa has an opening to kill the Feminine Titan but Levi emphasizes to her, ONE FUCKING THING, JUST ONE THING. After all, it was the lack of one clear motive that caused all of their allies to die. However, once Eren is retrieved, the mood is nothing but somber. More than usual have died. . . and at so great a cost that no one doubts the critical attitude they’ll get.
The ‘filler’ part of this episode is the angst of the new recruits at the fact that they’ll have to leave their compatriots body’s behind. It’s consistent with the show and I actually think it helped given how disturbing it was to see one of them actually die in this pursuit- it hammers home that this isn’t a time for feelings. Only for Levi to turn around and hand the one who survives a badge from his friends outfit saying he is reminded they lived by the insignia of the recon corps. BITCH TEARS EVERYWHERE.
Not to mention, Petra and several other’s bodies are tossed over the wagon so they can escape titans, and we see the grief on Levi’s face as he realizes they all died and perhaps it could have been avoided. It just shows the entire mechanics of the show in this one episode: These people are well trained, expert fighters, excellent scouts, and the terror of the titans is still too much for them. There is virtually nothing they can do. The episode nears it’s end with them returning to town and EVERYONE BITCHING ABOUT THEIR TAXES
I shit you not. This is the thanks the only CHILDREN willing to take risks get. They come back in body bags to people scoffing. Like, they’re all complaining about wasting their taxes like they went on some fucking cruise. WHAT, DO YOU THINK THERE IS A TITAN BEACH PARTY OUTSIDE? WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT? YOU’RE AWFUL AND I HATE YOU. LIKE. . .OH NO THEY’RE USING MONEY!!!!! TO DO WHAT? THEY GO OUT AND DIE SO YOU CAN HAVE HOPE YOU MISERABLE LITTLE BITCHES. I JUST WANT TO PUNT YOU IN THE FACE. GO TITAN AND MURDER THEM ALL EREN, MUR-…Okay I’m starting to get why Mikasa and Eren HATE EVERYTHING now.
i mean fucking seriously?
YEAH THEYRE FUCKIN LIVIN IT UP OUT THERE IN TITAN TERRITORY!
look at this bitch, LIVIN THAT SHIT UP WHILE COMPLETELY IGNORING THE EVER PRESENT FEAR TO BE EATEN
LOOK AT ALL THE DEATH DEFYING MELTED CHEESE!!!!!!!
fuck these people, i hope eren and the survey squad go to start their own society. with blackjack. and hookers.
