As a manga reader, I really haven't been keeping up with Season 3. Really I've just been watching the few parts I know are going to be good.
We're close to some juice parts, both Anime and Manga wise(seriously, November can't come fast enough). It does suck though that we have to wait a few months until we see any new episodes, but I feel it'll be worth the wait.
I can't wait that long! I have to know if they retake Wall Maria. This episode left us with a good cliffhanger though. I'm also considering reading the manga but I don't know if I want to start from the beginning. Which volume do these events take place in?
