Summary Incorrect

I'm not totally convinced the summary is correct. If you watch the part when Reiner is being crushed in the Female Titan's hand, you blatantly see her hand is fine, and that the area you can see Reiner's legs are at spouting blood. When he escapes the had seconds later, he's covered in blood from his head. But here's the thing...

as he swings down to pick up Armin, there's steam coming off him and the blood is gone by the time he lands. I personally believe this is a nod to the fact he is a Titan shifter and he was regenerating. There's no other way to explain the steam coming off his body or the blood suddenly vanishing. I think it's worth noting in a trivia section at th bottom of the page. 00:11, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

The blood that covers Reiner is Female Titan's blood. Any part of a Titan's body that is separated from the rest evaporates, that goes for the blood too. In other words, the steam is from Female Titan's blood evaporating. I'm sure that's what the animation team was aiming for, as that was not the only time it happened.  Miskos3 Talk  02:51, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

That's what happens when you translate manga to animation. In the manga, Jean sees blood coming out of Annie's hand and assumes she crushed Reiner to death, only to realize that it's her blood and Reiner escaped cutting her fingers. That's why we always say "READ THE MANGA", because anime-only watchers never understand what the animators intended in specific scenes.
And btw, that logic of "evaporating blood = Titan Shifter" is so wrong. If it was like that, then Hange, Levi, Erwin and Mikasa would also be Titan Shifters, but they are not. hfc2X 04:10, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
I do read the manga, I just felt it seemed odd considering that he wasn't steaming in the manga. I took it as a possible nod the animators may have put in to allude to his titan shifting.
