    • New episode, great. 

      Obligatory excitement is in order. Whoo, yay, encore and all that.

    • I thought this episode was a jumbled mess. I understand the Uprising arc wasn't popular with a lot of manga readers and the anime in particular sells itself on its beautifully animated action set pieces, so of course they'd want to speed up the pacing so they have something to show off at the season premiere (namely that action set piece at the end of the episode), but this felt like it shoveled through the manga chapters in record time.

      Granted, I'm familiar with the manga and Uprising is my favorite arc. From an anime-only person's perspective this might have been a kick of adrenaline ("All these things going on, wow!"), but I felt like the episode was just lightly touching on a bunch of things without going into depth with any them. Basically, it was the equivalent of eating a lot of sugary snacks rather than having a hearty meal. Tasty, but not very filling. I would have liked something more focused rather than trying to do too many things at once.

      I was trying to think of a Featured Article and Featured Image for the other thread, but I couldn't because nothing stood out. No one character had a moment (barring Kenny's introduction, and it's too soon to feature him) and there weren't any images that really stuck out in my mind except for one of Kenny that had credit text all over it.

      And now the very long spoiler musings:

      SPOILER: Most of the shuffling around didn't bother me, like how Hange runs her experiment with Eren before rather than after learning about Nick's death. That Kenny's ambush was in Trost rather than Stohess wasn't a big deal since there was nothing unique about the location that said the ambush had to be in Stohess. But I'm really perplexed by arresting Erwin so early. He has yet to plan the coup.

      SPOILER: I assume by sending Nile to arrest him, the conversation about the two of them being cadets together will happen on his way to prison. This conversation can be moved around, but can't be cut because it's the only reason for Nile to change sides at the end of the coup. While I don't think it's ideal, it's also possible to just delete the scene that prompts Erwin to do the coup in the first place (when he's summoned to the chancellery and finds all the nobles more interested in protecting their interests than protecting people).

      SPOILER: But by arresting Erwin early, I have to wonder how they're going to handle his conversation with Pixis. Pixis's support is instrumental in the coup's success, since he's the one who actually carries out the false alarm that causes the king's advisers to reveal their true morality in front of the military leadership, and Erwin's not going to be able to have a private conversation with him in prison. I suppose that meeting could have already happened, but that's going to be even more flashbacking. We'll have Erwin flashing back to Pixis and then flashing back within the flashback to show the story about his dad.

      I agree Rune. I had a hard time not comparing it to the manga version - favourite arc as well and I've been waiting for it - but it seemed fast-paced. Since it's more political, I expect more focus on the characters and their inner thoughts - at least characters the plot chose :p. Well, it's just the first episode, I can afford to wait and see. 

      Same goes for the featured article, nothing spectacular, except Kenny but yeah... too soon.

      A word on the opening, wasn't expecting that at all. That Linked Horizon didn't make the song, why not. And this one is really nice, it's just different from what we got used to. As for what it shows us, perhaps it's too sweet for an Aot opening and would fit as an ending.

    • What a disappointment.... They speed up and remove too much scene, this is really bad, The Uprising Arc is one of my fav because it is really intense in its own way, but this?



      And I thought they remove the reminiscent of original squad Levi to gave room to a new reworked one,  but now that they even removed lot of key moment, I think there won't be much hope for it anymore....(in agony)



      Right now I want to believe they did this because this episode is an opening, which mean it has to be epic (Not nearly enough though, just look at the OP alone). It would be extremely stupid to just skip all of that, it sucks. They ruined many scenes already In this episode alone, that Eren/Historia heart to heart conversation + mikasa's jealousy, historia tragic past, aftermath of the battle in ep 37, just way too much has been ruined

      Look I am not big fan of certain things being sped up but I do think its necessary to get things to get going. Yeah too much was removed and switched but Eren & Historia had a talk. Things like the Historia past could still be seen, its not the end be all yet.

    • Sure there will be flashback, but as I stated it has been ruined. Many of the flashback I'm certain they will just simply mention it instead of going in depths of it like in the manga. I watch the series for the meaning it conveyed, which I personally think the reason behind its success back in season 1. Now all of the small scenes, that is suppose to show all that is gone. I don't think this is spoiler since it is likely not happening at all, but where is that moment where Levi got surrounded by those "selfish people", or that women who is holding her child, or that scene where mikasa realizes it is head merchant of Trost who kidnapped their friend. Many details that reflect the real world into this series are now gone. It just simple action with no deeper meaning to it, which make it feels like cheap way for hype, somewhat "shallow". It doesn't feel I'm watching AoT at all

    • Not really. That question wasn't answered by this stage in the manga either. It's part of the mystery right now.

        Loading editor
    • Didn't Erwin's letter say that the government is after Eren and Historia, who are under the Survey Corps' custody? Perhaps it's the Wall Rose invasion that pushed them to take direct action against the scouts now and retrieve the 2 of them by force.

        Loading editor
    • Eren in particular was really supposed to have been handed over to the MP's at the end of S1. It's just the Wall Rose Invasion came so soon afterwards that they never really did. Now that's sorted, it makes sense they would try to get custody of Eren again.

        Loading editor
    • If that's the case, it's interesting how they allowed the Survey Corps to take custody of Eren for an entire month to go on that expedition. Eren nearly got captured there.

        Loading editor
    • I think you're confusing two different events.

      After the battle in Trost, there was the trial and Eren was given to the Survey Corps because they said they could keep him in line. At this point, that was where Eren was supposed to be. There was no future handover to the government or the MPs in the works.

      Then the Female Titan attack happened during the expedition, the Survey Corps got wrecked, and Eren was nearly kidnapped. When they returned, they were told to hand over Eren (it was obvious they couldn't take care of him as well as they said they could). This is when Jean was disguised as Eren and Eren, Mikasa, and Armin baited Annie into revealing herself.

      The bait worked and they captured the Female Titan the day Eren was supposed to handed over. But before anything could go further, the Wall Rose invasion happened (which I believe took place entirely within the span of 48 hours).

      We don't know how long there was between Episode 37 and 38, but assuming it hasn't been more than a few days, we're looking at maybe a week or so since the hand off was originally supposed to happen. It's long enough for the government to have gotten impatient, but not long enough that it's looks weird.

      But didn't the government rescind the order to hand over Eren at the end of Season 1 after their success in capturing Annie?

        Loading editor
    • I've never really thought too much about this part of the story (maybe because it's relatively early on), but it seems as if there's some disconnect regarding the motivations of the government.

      If they wanted Eren and Historia, couldn't they have simply ordered the military to hand them over immediately after the Battle of Trost? I think the reason why they waited as because it wasn't very urgent at the time, but it was both the assault on Stohess and the Wall Rose Invasion that drove them to action.

        Loading editor
    • I don't remember them rescinding the order at the end of S1, but I could be wrong. I do remember Erwin justifying his actions and promising to root out the other Titans hiding among them, but I don't think we hear anything from the government's side of things.

      Eren was supposed to be handed over to the Military Police after Trost, which is why they had the trial, but I believe Zackly was the one who make the call for who should have custody of Eren, as he's head of the military (but not part of the inner government). As to why they had the trial at all, I assume it's because the SC protested and Zackly decided they would do all this nice and proper through the usual military channels and he had no reason to override Erwin's request.

      It's possible that the government also did not think Zackly would make that decision, and once he did they could not easily undo it without drawing attention to the fact they were overriding him. (Zackly would likely want to know why.) The failed expedition would have been a good excuse to change things.

      But I agree that it also probably wasn't urgent at the time as they didn't expect anything would actually happen to Eren until the Female Titan tried to kidnap him. If they really didn't want to wait the Interior Squad could have been deployed much sooner and screw official channels.

    • Just finished re-reading the entire uprising arc, and now I am reminded of why this arc is my fav arc. The story is still not doomed yet, for better or worse this is just the first out of 25 episodes. I can't help but notice there are major change in the plot happening right now, it got diverted slightly from the manga, there are many scenes that we won't see happening, but there are an equally much chances for new scenes. SPOILER: I don't think the the Reeves company is going to be a part of the coup, There has been no mention of them at all, even at the part where it should(Mikasa). Eren and Historia are kidnapped already? Because in the manga, the ambush only happened after SC cooperate with the Reeves, Capture some MPs 1st brigade, and learned Historia's high status. Which didn't happen in the anime (yet?) Please correct me, I'm a bit confused to the change they made in the anime.

    • With all the comments already made, I know this'll sound redundant, but the best part about the Uprising Arc, in my opinion, had been the politics, dialogue, and moral dilemmas. I'm afraid that the anime will depict the Arc more morally straightforward ( a bummer, personally speaking), that many of the conversations that humanized dislikable characters would be written off, and that the politics will be a simplistic bore, all because it isn't 'exciting' enough. They'd already done it in the previous seasons, and I was disappointed on several occasions.

      SPOILER: If the Reeves company wasn't going to be involved in the coup, I think they would have been replaced with generic goons. Why bother introducing Flegel if his only narrative purpose is to get spin kicked by Mikasa and then we never see him again? The Reeves company getting bullied by the government into doing its dirty work is part of what turns the people of Trost against the government, and seeing that bullying in action is what drives the Berg Newspapers to report the truth. The order of events has been shifted around, but there are still things the Reeves company can and did help with, such as kidnapping Sannes. It's from his interrogation that we learn the Reiss family is the true royal family. Maybe Reeves can't bait them with Eren anymore, but the scriptwriters could come up with another excuse for him to meet Sannes to allow kidnapping to ensue.

      Exactly right. Having an action-packed first episode helps draw in new viewers and keeps the interest for returning viewers. Plus, the directors mentioned in a recent interview that there will be flashbacks in future episodes to flesh out the story in this arc.

    • This was an ok episode in my opinion as it was mostly good but also had some easy to spot issues.

      - I agree with everyone here that the events were a little rushed as even though Uprising is my least favourite arc I still feel that the stuff this episode skipped over is still vital to understanding events and characters later on. So hopefully they just restructured the event order or they are revisited via flashbacks which is a tad clunky but better than skipping it entirely.

      - The best scene of the episode for me was Hange's deduction of Nick's murder at the hands of Sannes as it was pretty cool to see Hange use her intelligence and odd personality to break through Sanne's lies and find physical evidence of the torture (even better in animated form than on the page IMO)  + the music, composition, VA, and cinematography were excellent in this scene.

      - Kenny's ambush being moved up was unexpected and a tad too early but I'm still pretty stoked to see the upcoming fight animated as that was one of my favourite parts in the Uprising manga arc.

      - The OP is probably my least favourite of the 4 AOT OPs as it was a bit basic for my taste (Images, animation etc.) and it felt like it would have worked better elsewhere but the song itself was well sung and nicely composed.

      - The training scene was a little too short for my taste as it skipped over a lot of details but it's nice to see Eren's Cronenberg scene made the jump (I love body horror).

      - The opening scene was solid as its nice to get a breather before things start ramping up and the voice actors (Japanese, I watch the show with subs) have quite a bit of chemistry with each other so I found it enjoyable.

      - The worst individual scene for me was Armin getting molested by Dimo Reeves as I found that scene hard to take seriously in the manga and it was nearly as bad here (Jean's VA's dead pan reaction came close to making it bearable though).

      - The weakest aspect of this outing was definitely it's pacing as it did run a little too quickly which is kinda funny as the reason why Uprising is my least favourite arc in the manga is it's sluggish pacing but here it was almost like they went to the opposite extreme to try and fix that issue but hopefully they find a happy medium as they go along.

      - Kenny's ambush being moved up was unexpected and a tad too early but I'm still pretty stoked to see the upcoming fight animated as that was one of my favourite parts in the Uprising manga arc.

      - The OP is probably my least favourite of the 4 AOT OPs as it was a bit basic for my taste (Images, animation etc.) and it felt like it would have worked better elsewhere but the song itself was well sung and nicely composed.

      - The training scene was a little too short for my taste as it skipped over a lot of details but it's nice to see Eren's Cronenberg scene made the jump (I love body horror).

      - The opening scene was solid as its nice to get a breather before things start ramping up and the voice actors (Japanese, I watch the show with subs) have quite a bit of chemistry with each other so I found it enjoyable.

      - The worst individual scene for me was Armin getting molested by Dimo Reeves as I found that scene hard to take seriously in the manga and it was nearly as bad here (Jean's VA's dead pan reaction came close to making it bearable though).

      - The weakest aspect of this outing was definitely it's pacing as it did run a little too quickly which is kinda funny as the reason why Uprising is my least favourite arc in the manga is it's sluggish pacing but here it was almost like they went to the opposite extreme to try and fix that issue but hopefully they find a happy medium as they go along.

      Actually the guy who was molesting Armin wasn't Dimo Reeves, his henchmen rather.

      huh odd I always thought it was him because I swear that he mocks Armin in the manga's equivalent scene by saying that he's not normal anymore (or something like that) but still a really strange scene to keep around nonetheless.
