    • I voted 5 in the poll, because in terms of actual things that happened, this feels like half of a chapter. 

      That's something that's really been bothering me ever since that chapter where they're walking to Shinganshina, if you compare these recent chapters to earlier chapters in the series, not as much happens in them, in my opinion. Knowing I have to wait another month, it kind of sucks, honestly.

    • On the flip side, Armin's "negotiation" with Bertolt was entertaining.

      'Let's talk terms'

      'Ok, give us Eren and we kill everyone you know to exist.'

      'Uhm... no.'

    • Gotta say, with Squad Hange dead and Reiner apparently regenerating the situation doesn't look good for them... if Eren has any tricks up his sleeve, now would be the time to pull them out. 

        Loading editor
    • Wait but that **** Bertolt didn't make much of a mess when he transformed twice to destroy the walls and the 2nd time he appeared right behind Eren.. I didn't know he could reduce and increase his titan transformation blast all of a sudden!!

    • Yeah, the mushroom cloud was quite gratuitous.

        Loading editor
    • I really hope Bertholt a Reiner die soon, and I really hope Hange didn't die in that explosion. I think the only Trump Card they have left is the syringe containing Titan spinal fluid. I wonder if they'll actualy use it and what type of powerful Titan is inside it.

      Well, *sigh* time to wait a month to find  out what happens next.

        Loading editor
    • Wait so is Reiner permanently a titan now? Or what's his deal? He looks as if he is fusing with the titan body.

        Loading editor
    • The syringe is with Levi and even if they used it on someone, they gonna have to eat a shifter first otherwise it would be another mindless titan like the others.

        Loading editor
    • I'm going to be furious if Hange didn't make it. I don't want that to be the end for her. Sucks that we keep getting cliffhangers. But yeah, Eren needs to decide what his next move against these two is going to be.

    • Moblit is probably dead, but Hange just went super-saiyan.



      But in all seriousness, should we list Hange as deceased, or should we call Isayama on his bluff?

        Loading editor
    • Until all is confirmed by the man himself, no. "Unknown" is how it stays until we know for sure.

      No high hopes for Mobilt there, but the man's surprised us before.

        Loading editor
    • Interesting new developments on their motivations. Bertholt doesn't view the humans as evil or having done anything wrong to deserve death, he just decides that they need to die. Why? What is the endgame here? For what exact purpose do the shifters need Eren? Did Hange just die? I'm really intrigued by these questions

      No, he's growing a new head and he laid his titan down to protect his actual body with his armoured titan while Bertolt transforms. Once he's done growing his head i'm guessing he would detach his titan and go to the colossal titan's side.

    • What exactly is the Homeland looking to accomplish here? When's Isayama going to start clarifying what the hell is going on?

    • Did y'all see how small Eren's titan form while he hid behind a house from the blast comapred to the colossal titan? Like damn how is Eren supposed to counterattack him once he makes a move towards Eren's nape to extract and kidnap him.

        Loading editor
    • That's easy, the colossal is big but the most it's going to be able to do is crawl. 

      They basically explicitly stated the plan in the chapter, Bertolt runs hot, every time we've seen him in action he only maintains that form for a few minutes, if that, so they're just going to let him wear himself out by goading him into attacking but otherwise avoiding him, and then when he begins to run out of steam, it'll be time to knock him down.

      In other words, Eren-Titan vs the Colossal will be fought like every final boss battle in every video game in the 90s.

    • Greetings to all of you on the attack on titan wiki This is S. Manuel you may remember me when i introduced myself on your page.

      First i would like to thank Manuel for his kind responce i really appreciate it

      secondly my words on the chapter 

      Isayama once again has impressed me with this chapter and he confirmed my prediction that Reiner is not dead to me it seemed to easy with the thunder spears destorying his head and not the rest of him. Also as for Hange getting caught up in the explosion there will be deaths but i predict hange will somehow survive but as for her squad i dont see all of living through that atomic bomb like explosion. But how will Eren deal with this crisis and how will he make it out? ill leave that for you guys to think about. Also recall back to chapter 77 the quadrupedal titan refered to zeke as War Chief this implies that there is a more dangerous enemy to face. Well thats all i have to say ill see you next month to offer my thoughts on chapter 79.

    • Very confusing chapter for me. Yep, like others, I would call this a half chapter. Isayama giving too much cliff hangers and not just explain the whole story (or a large part of it) in at least a single chapter or two to clearly make me know what's behind everything. Would be really happy if he does that to the next chapter (I got a feeling he will). Wouldn't want to see Hange die! She/He's my favorite character! Please Isayama don't do it! By then I would just simply wait for the next month (and hope that Hange would arise from the ashes of Shiganshina alive and crazy!).

    • Eventhough It's like a half chapter, it's still amazing. I don't think hange can or should die before Erwin because she is supposed to be the next chief. Also I don't think berholdt won't be a big problem because even if he grab eren there is a lot of distance he have to travel atleast to reach zeke but he won't have the energy or time to do it. Also if he touches eren, he have to face a serious threat from mikasa. As for the beast titan levi may not be able to take hm down but definitely can keep him busy until eren's rescue. the more important thing is we have two trump cards that they don't know and also they don't seem to have any tricks left up their sleeves.

      so Hooorayyy....

      I totally agree with you (specially with the Mikasa part) and Bertolt travelling a large distance would be a big NO. Still hoping for someone to atleast keep Zeke and Bertolt busy while someone would use Levi's serum and just gobble up Reiner (still alive huh -_-)

    • I haven't actually given my opinion of this chapter yet, so I'll go ahead and write it now:

      • I agree with Tausendberg completely. I've noticed recently that each new chapter of SNK seems to have less story than the last. There was a time when I felt like I had read an entire novel after reading just one chapter of the manga. Now I often find myself wondering if the chapters of SNK are actually 45-50 pages, or if Crunchyroll just miscounted the number of pages.
      • That being said, I think this was a very good chapter, all things considered. I've always had a soft spot for Bertolt, the soft-spoken wall-flower, and it was nice to finally see him come out of his shell a little and really interact with the other characters.
        • Bertolt calling Armin on his Annie bluff was one of the greatest things ever. The look on Armin's face as he quivered in his boots was priceless.
      • One of the coolest moments (in my opinion) was Bertl's fight with Mikasa. One thing I always forget because of Bertl's quiet nature is that he graduated third in his Training Corps... And now we see why. He has the reflexes and fighting skills to push back Mikasa even after she blind-sided him from behind. Not to mention his pain tolerance. There aren't many people who would be able to keep their wits about them in battle after having their ear cut off. They really aren't kidding when they say "watch out for the quiet ones"...
      • It looks like Isayama is still dropping hints about Armin's leadership potential, with Hange giving him control over Squad Levi without a second thought.
      • I'm not happy that Reiner can grow his head back. That's a whole new level of plot armor... I'll just leave it at that.
      • A 100-foot tall Titan just catapulted to earth, landed on top of Hange and Moblit, caused an explosion that disintegrated half of Shiganshina, and there's still a 50/50 chance Hange's alive.
      • I really like how ingenious Zeke's plan is. Not only has he eliminated a large percentage of the Survey Corps with his Bertolt bomb, he has also effectively shifted the Corps' attention to Bertolt. I can't wait to see what kind of damage he does behind the scenes while everyone is focused on stopping Bertolt.

      All around, this was a very good chapter, even with Reiner's unbelievable survival. It was nice seeing a new side of Bertolt's personality, along with a little glance at his fighting skills. I could have done without the "cliffhanger" ending of whether or not Hange is alive though... Isayama needs to start stepping up and killing characters, rather than putting them perilous situations right at the end of a chapter, then making readers wait an entire month to see how the characters miraculously survive.

      Yes, but I don't think anyone can have stomach to do it except for Erwin, because You know he is like freakingly willing to do anything for the victory and for the truth ofcourse. Honestly I don't want mikasa or levi to turn in to titan because that would be .. well not satisfying. 

      so my money is on Erwin.

      And 

      Also there exist an interesting possibility of using the serum for gravely injured hange to heal her and then she can...no  WILL gobble up  reiner without hesistation.

    • I was thinking about it... We can't underestimate Bertolt right now, he seems to be driven by a certain confidence and nonchalance regarding the death of so many people he knows. I mean, he's point blank telling to people he's known for years in the training corps to their face that they all have to die like with the apparent ease of telling someone they have to pick up after themselves. This is in very sharp contrast when he cried about the weight on his conscience from killing so many people when Connie demanded an answer.

      To put it in vernacular, Bertolt just don't give a fuck.

      And it's my belief that clarity of mind has made the colossal titan even more powerful and the reason why he was able to make such a big explosion. 

      I hate to say it but Bertolt might be stronger, faster, and in every combat relevant way more dangerous than ever before because as we see over and over again, a shifter's willpower seems to be directly interconnected with the titan's power.

      As evidenced by the mushroom cloud, I think this is the strongest iteration of the colossal titan ever so I don't know about you guys but I'm mentally ready for the upcoming fight to be up in the air.

      One possible reveal of Bertolt's increased power: If the Colossal Titan is depicted as freely standing rather than crawling or holding onto a wall like in previous chapters.

    • Bert gives no shits anymore guy just did a nuclear explosion. Hope Hange is alive but that explosion was pretty dam close to Hange.

    • this chapter was just a bunch of "really?", i mean, Reiner survived because he transferred his consciousness to the rest of his body? are you kidding me? and Bertolt saying "that was very risky and dangerous", it just a lame way for Isayama to "justify" how "hard it is" to do such thing, in two situations where he should be dead already, so apparently it's not really that hard or risky to do if he did it TWICE. This villains started as "too strong" to being retardedly OP, and only to have this lame "you didn't see that coming" situation where it doesn't make any sense, because honestly, if they are this strong, they could have easily destroyed humanity a long time ago, in fact i'm still surprised they haven't done it yet. They know Eren isn't remotely close to use the full power of the coordinate, they know the original holder it's dead, and humanity it's in a dire situation, they could have easily broken another wall, get inside a bunch of mindless titans to eat the people and destroy the humans inside the walls once and for all. Oh and there's more, the talk between Armin and Bertotl that led to nothing, the fact that Bertolt can make such a giant explosion with only his transformation (again, another stupid overpowered ability of the villains), HANGE'S POSSIBLE DEAD!!!, i mean, really?, of all the characters that Isayama could have killed, like, you know, Reiner, or Erwin or hell, even one of the members of squad Levi, Hange and her squad are the ones in the dead list of Isayama, and it was just kill for the sake of killing (yes, i know a good chunk of this manga is that), but my problem is, if Hange somehow survives, and as much as i want that to happen, it would be stupid to have only her survive the explosion and the rest of the squad not. Overall, 7, mostly because it's not a damn flashback, but it didn't progress on anything, it was all just a bunch of "really?".

      I'm thinking we don't have the whole story... Bertolt mentions that a shifter pilot putting his memories in a titan's brain is a 'last resort' and that framing reveals that it's an unideal action that might have undesirable consequences. 

      What I'm saying is, something we should expect in the next couple of chapters is once Reiner's human body reforms that Reiner's personality will be changed by the experience.

      Maybe, crazy thought, but perhaps we haven't seen the last of the 'Reiner's split personality' plot device and that it's going to re-enter the story in an unexpected way... Perhaps, because he was fighting on the side of the homelanders rather than posing as a soldier when he was attacked, perhaps 'Reiner the Warrior' "died" when his head got destroyed by the Thunder Spears, and only 'Reiner the Soldier' comes back, with... interesting results.

      It's kind of far fetched but at the same time, I don't know why Isayama would mention that storing memories in a titan's brain is a 'last resort' unless that factoid is going to come back in some consequential way. If Bertolt had only said, "oh, of course, he just moved his memories to the titan brain and so he'll be back any minute now." it would have different implications, you know?

      This does sound like it could be an interesting plot point, but it doesn't change my opinion that Reiner should just stay dead after getting his head blown off. He had a good run, now it's time to move on (I know this sounds kind of cold, but seriously; the guy's nape was cut, he was impaled by Levi, and his head blew up, and it's looking like he's going to be just fine). Reiner's the reason I seriously believe Hange survived Bertolt's nuke, and that's not really a good thing in a series where readers are supposed to believe that the characters are always in peril.

      If that happens then reiner is definitely going to return back to my favourtes list.

      Actually, If you think it like this way, It  makes more sense. Reiner SP had no real use from the start. It was just mentioned  here and there and also He didn't have a slighest bit of hesitation at every battles. He was clear minded (mostly) and fullfilled his duty. Now would be a best time to put that SP of him to good use for HUMANITY.

If ever Hange dies in the next chapter, I'll just wish that either Reiner (very annoying plot armor, suriving twice? -_-), Bertolt (highly unlikely, but with a mix of a huge dose of possibility) or Zeke (seems unnoticed though) would die too.

We can wish but  nobody is going to die in the next chapter especially not zeke because I was expecting so much for the standoff between Levi and zeke ( still it may take atleast 6 months).

      The least we can expect from next chapter is 

      1. Is hange alive?

      2.Is Reiner alive?

      3.Is Hange BF alive?

      4.can clossal titan walk? Because we have never seen him walk, He is always holding the walls while destroying the gates.

      No, I completely agree but at the same time, I hate to say it, but that ship has sailed a while ago for me. I mean, at the end of this "chapter" I was thinking to myself, "yeah, of course, the redshirts of 'squad levi' got exploded but looky look, the whole 'main cast' is still alive."

      I hate to say it but in that way, especially since we have so much time between so little action to mull over it, the series has become sort of predictable in some ways and the only ways in which it isn't predictable is because Isayama hasn't told us all the rules yet. Really, I am bothered by these recent chapters because when Reiner's head got blown up, they should've gotten a hint from the fact that The Armored Titan wasn't dissolving. If I was Eren I would've yanked out Reiner's body without hesitation. In fact, their mistake was fleeing Reiner's body in the first place... I don't know... oh wait I got it....

      Actually, I don't know what was titan power levi talking about when Reiner didn't die from his attack. Did he made is body heavy or something?

      Yup and btw, how did Levi knew that Reiner was using a Titan Power already? Perhaps the eyes?

    • Maybe the only point in Reiner surviving explosion is to get eaten by someone who will inject the titan power?

    • I'm telling you guys, the fact that Bertolt talked about it being a last resort for a shifter to store his memories in his titan's brain...

      That fact is going to come back.

    • As interesting as all this is, I'm literally going super-saiyan with rage if Hange's dead.  She's waaay to cool/insane a character to just...y'know, die like that.  :(

      Also, where exactly was the commander standing when all this B.S. went down? Is he still kickin', or what?

      Finally, my sympathy for Bertolt (increased by the last chapter) is fast dwindling. >:(

      P.S. I still don't think Annie deserves death.  She's far too complex a character.

    • Hi. I  have been reading this series for like a year no after going through the anime. I loved this chapter it simultaniously felt good for Bertholt to come into his own and not(with the consequences).

      While the whole regenerating of his head is a bit, convenient. I think some interesting things will come from it. This whole last resort is kinda weird. Note if this to use a Chess term, "Castling existed" why didn't other shifters we know of use it. One could argue they couldn't and you may be right but why couldn't they? Or perhaps more interestingly most titanshifters would rather die than use the resort Bertholt just used.

      Indeed the last bits of info I want to say are these, the comment between Armin and Mikassa about Bertholt almost being like a different person. Perhaps this is a side effect of the Titan Ability. Perhaps it is just as much a physical but as well Mental change. This could be the reason why giving your mind to the titan body is so scary you coulld lose youself to its psychopathic gourging urges.  This mental change could be the "nightmare" most titans and titanshifters go through and which causes them to eat and in fact the more the titanshifter shifts the more it starts to take over hence the reason the titanshifters developed or use the ability to give titan abilities to another. We saw what happened to Reiner I wonder if it is a sideeffect of shifting, if so that is very interesting.

      If this is indeed the case it would explain what happened to Reiner, it would also make for a interesting situation and explain why Bertholt is acting the way he is as if Bertholt is taking over for a dead friend. Indeed his friend would almost be like he was dead.

      Its interesting I don't remember if someone can take titanshifting from a dead person, if it was revealed I can't remember. This could have been a case of since I can't give this away yet before dying I will make myself a shell of myself.

      I believe Erwin is still standing on the wall watching things play out. It's not like he can do much with one arm.


      On another note, for real, we need to start seeing important characters die... I'm not liking that Reiner may be able to weasel out of death again. :/

    • So Reiner survives Levi's slice attack and a kick to the belly, falls between 15-40 feet, survived multiple blasts by explosive rods and still his head grows back. So will this happen with the other shifters like Bertholdt or Beast Titan? if so, humanity is screwed.

      I don't believe Hanji/Hange is dead, i think the blast killed half of them, and the remaining soldiers of Squad Hanji/Hange survived like squad Levi (without Levi) 

      IF she dies, who is next in line? Levi? with Mike and Hanji dead, i only see Levi being chosen, or Armin as he is smart. I could only imagine Armin or Levi..

    • I really like this chapter, about the regeneration of Reiner well I expected that because just with the thunder spears it will be so easy to defeat him. Now with Armin, he is brilliant, the things didn't go as he expected that demonstrates he's not a perfect strategic, he has to think clearly and not hasten sometimes, that's why I like Mikasa stopped him to follow Bertolt, I really believe these two are good for each other.

      Also for Hange I am sure she is not dead, meanwhile Moblit and the rest of her squad maybe.

      Now they have to fight just the six of them against the CT and the AT, under Armin's command he will probably say Eren will need to handle Reiner while he and the others go to Bertolt. I am completely sure Armin will get hurt this time, he looks a little concern about being save by Mikasa and her arm looks damage, that would be a problem.

      No worries, thank you for the correction, a typo is a bigger deal when it's someone's name I think.

      But, I mean, I could be wrong, but at the rate things are going, we're not going to know the inside of the basement for AT LEAST three more months. I mean, think about how slowly Isayama is moving things along on a month by month basis and we haven't even started to see the beast titan fight Levi which will have at least one dedicated chapter.

I love how the characters keep talking about how cruel the world is when they're equipped with plot armor that makes the Iron Man suit look like it's made out of cardboard. I imagine Squad Levi mourning their teammates would look something like this:

      I still want to see more of them;like their backstory and origins along with some badassery,then they may leave.  Characters like titan trio,Jean,Hange,etc feel so underused to me whereas the protagonists ,Eren,Mikasa,Armin and Levi, feel overused and slightly boring,lol. (no offense to their fans) It's just that I'm kinda over those guys,time for them to stand aside and let other characters shine.

    • Eren isn't overused; it's his lack of abilities that he has already used that are overused. I mean, we alread know how strong the Titans are, how fast they can run, how fast they can regenerate if their heads aren't damaged in the back, but the power he has yet to use, and is underused, is the Coordinate ability.

      I doubt that would happen, it would be more likely to lose fans due to a delay in the airing for the second season of the anime.

      I can't really side with the manga at this point when comes to the survival of the characters. Especially when it comes to Reiner, the plot armor on this guy is incredibly strong. Considering they showed what kind of damage the Thunder Spears could do to a tree, I expected something similar to happen to Reiner.(maybe more of the back of his body blown off) At this point, if a concentrated explosion can't kill a Titan Shifter, what can?

    • The series will be fine, a few people kvetching on wikia won't change that.

      The real threat to the series' viability is Isayama and co. dragging everything out. It's February 2016 and there hasn't been a main storyline episode of the anime (remember that thing?) since November 2014. 

      Meanwhile, Chapter 78 is confirmation of many people's suspicion that Isayama has chosen to drag things out. The relevant plot points could have been condensed into a third of a chapter at most. 

      A lot of people are eager to see what is in that basement, long time fans have been teased about it for years, but the way Isayama is really stretching things out it seems doubtable we'll get to see the basement before the end of Summer, especially considering Isayama might jam more internal monologues or flashbacks into the storyline.

    • I haven't posted my impressions about this chapter yet, so let's do it:

      • This was a chapter that felt mostly as a transition, which has been something common in recent months. Isayama is taking his precious time with this arc, spending a lot of pages with character development and slowly moving on with the story. I know it's important to show the motives and evolution of the characters, but as Elvis Presley said: "A little less conversation, a little more action, please".
      • Now we know for sure that Reiner isn't dead. %#$%"#$&"&. I've lost my hopes of seeing him dead at least until the end of the arc. Is it too much to ask you to die once and for all, Reiner? ^^
      • Bertolt is the new Historia, LOL (I miss Historia, by the way :( ). You see, Eren? This is how you must be if you really intend to make a change in a cruel world. I like his evolution. I like strong characters, either emotionally or physically; preferably both. Though I still hate him as a person and I want him to die along with Reiner. :P That part when he said "What a strange feeling... I'm barely even scared... I can see... every thing around me", it sounds like the "awakening" characteristic of the Ackermans. I think the "awakening" is something that any person can accomplish regardless of their bloodline (like Historia and Bertolt) if they experience a shocking event that forces them to dramatically change their way of thinking and be strong, and the Ackermans simply have a natural ease to achieve it and to a higher degree. This is so cool because one of the [many] reasons I felt identified with this series in the first place was because I experienced something similar a few years ago, but... that's another story. :P
      • That new ability of the Shifters to transfer their conscience throughout their entire nervous system is such a pain. If taking down those three damn strong Titans wasn't enough of a problem, this now means that the Corps would have to find a way to destroy their napes instantly so they don't have time to react, or to destroy their entire bodies. It's almost like to be fighting Cell from DBZ. o_O Also, this ability feels like a plot device of the last minute. I don't know if it is that or if Isayama actually planned it from the beginning and we were simply taken by surprise just like the Corps were. But it will be interesting to see how they will handle it.
      • Humanity's strongest duo just keep failing miserably. First, Levi couldn't kill Reiner (in his human form), then Mikasa + Levi couldn't kill Bertolt (in his human form too). It's pretty obvious now that Levi really stands no chance against Zeke in his Beast Titan form, at least not with we have seen so far.
      • Overall, the operation has been a total fiasco up to this point. The Thunder Spears at the end served for nothing; the enemy now knows the weapon so the element of surprise is lost; that new ability and the inefficacy of the strongest soldiers to take them down even in their human forms make them look more difficult to defeat than ever; the Corps are still trapped without their horses and with half of their soldiers at the other side of the Wall; the explosion has certainly caused several casualties, with Hange and Moblit probably counted among the victims (if not dead, at least injured); and Bertolt and Zeke have not even begun to fight. What are you going to do, Erwin and Armin?

      In conclusion, despite the little action, I liked this chapter. Bertolt's evolution was interesting, the ability to transfer the conscience will completely change the course of the story, and Isayama is turning the situation even more uphill for the Corps, so I'm intrigued to see how he will get them out. Still, I hope the following chapters go more to the point.

      Because Levi is trained to fight against titans with no intelligence or superpowers. The shifters all have powers and defenses he never learned to fight against so of course he wouldn't know. Same with Mikasa. She doesn't know how to fight a Titan that can think and outsmart her then, squeeze her, then flick her against a tree like a booger.

      Maybe the consciousness thing is a thing all shifters can do. Just it's something that needs to be learned. It's like regeneration just only shifters can do it since they have the aptitude and willpower to actually try. Mindless titans couldn't do it since they don't know how.

      Or you might need to have strong willpower or excellent control of your Titan to the point of being completely lucid (eren says that transforming the first time is like a dream. I always imagined that Titan shifting is like having a lucid dream for shifters, just the dream is actually happening). Eren has only been trained to use his powers for at most six to nine months. Bertolt and Reiner it's kinda implied they have had their powers since they were probably way young and just grew up with it. I mean how else would they have learned to carry out the mission and be so good at controlling forms?

      It's probably like taking Titan shifting to an extreme just as selective regeneration and turning off regeneration is taking regeneration to an extreme. Like you need to learn how to do it and have excellent jean grey like willpower and control.

    • It seems like everytime we have some idea on what the Titan Shifters ultimate goal is, they do something that completely alters it. So humanity did nothing wrong, yet they all have to die? I sort of get the feeling that whomever Bertolt, Reiner, and probably Zeke serve back at the Homeland view the humans in the Walls as some kind of threat in regards to something we haven't been shown yet. In all likelihood, it must have something to do with the "Coordinate" ability and the fear that it would one day fall into the wrong hands and destroy the Homeland. Reiner did state something along those lines when he saw that Eren did possess the "Coordinate" ability and immediately called him the absolute worst person to have that power.

      If I had to make an educated guess regarding Reiner's situation, here's my theory, though it will probably end up being completely wrong; It's been established that Reiner suffered from multiple personality disorder with one being the "Warrior" trying to wipe out humanity and the other being the "Soldier" helping humanity. Both personalities have their own set of memories. What if after his head was destroyed, he ended up losing the entire "Warrior" personality along with it's respective memories seeing as that was the personality he was under at the time? Taking that into account, my guess is that after he fully regenerates, he will be under his "Soldier" personality and end up aiding humanity against Bertolt, which would seriously fuck things up on the Shifter's end.
