    • I enjoyed the pacing of this episode. It offered a breath of fresh air after the breakneck pace of the last two.

    • This is probably the first episode of the third season that I really enjoyed. There are still cases of adaptational weirdness, like how Levi magically knows that Eren and Historia are being transported by wagon and exactly where they're going, and how Squad Levi is transported in the span of a few hours from somewhere in the vicinity of Trost to the vicinity of Stohess. (Did anyone sleep that night?)

      But aside from that, we got to see a lot of what I'd been looking forward to this season.

    • Pretty good episode. I’m glad they included Erwin’s and historia’s backstory. As well as the conversation between pixis and Erwin.

    • This was another solid episode for me as it didn't have many standout flaws and circled back to most of the material that I was worried would be left behind.

      - I thought Historia and Erwin's backstories were adapted well but less organically than the manga (2 cases of flashback-ception because of resequencing the event order) but I still appreciated that the material was not left behind as they were standout moments for me in the manga and also important for the characters development.

      - The pacing was actually pretty good in this episode as it was quick but didn't skip the themes or character moments that define this arc unlike episode 1 or the back half of episode 2.

      - I do wonder though how much of the remaining 9-10 episodes of this arc (if this season is 24 or 25 episodes long) will be original material as the show has covered a lot of the manga's material in a short amount of time and I wonder what exactly Isayama wanted to add to this arc (more Kenny/Traute seems to be a given so far) as it could lead to exciting things down the road if Wit/Isayama are truly getting more bold about changing things as the first two seasons adhered to the manga pretty closely outside of like two big changes.

    • My opinion of the anime's adaption has been improving with each episode, but I'm still on the fence about some of this resequencing. Flashbacks are inherently difficult to fit organically into a plot-driven work like AoT but the anime isn't doing itself any favors by inception-izing Erwin's past. And the episode beginning with a hard cut back in time to Historia telling her story may confuse anime-only people not aware of where everything used to be in the manga. 

      That being said, Kenny is still awesome, and Rod Reiss actually feels somewhat menacing. I couldn't take him seriously in the manga but his dead-looking eyes and raspy voice adds layers of creepiness and authority to his character. I wish we had actually seen some of Reeves' good deeds in Trost instead of hearing about them, but Erwin's declaration made me feel sad at his passing, moreso then his actual death. 

      Consider my faith in the anime restored. I'm still wary but pretty happy with what we've been getting.

      if you enjoyed this then you would love more when Eren SPOILER: goes into Marley becoming a spy and Steals their Warhammer titan its my most favourate arc in manga.

      As Isayama intended.

      Not all people enjoyed that said that "arc" that you spoil.

    • I picked up on the manga after I finished the first season of the anime on Netflix. I picked up the anime again when seasons 2 and 3 came out, because I was so excited to see some of the stuff I read live. They've honestly reminded me of Season 1, the adapters seem to like this storytelling method of introducing plot points both major and minor in nature first, and then going back to fill in little details. Eren mentions in the first episode of Season 3 that Historia had told them their story, and if I hadn't read the manga I'd be like "NANI??????" But then this episode opens up with aforementioned story, and now it makes more sense when I rewatch episode 1. I'll be honest, I HATE having to do that. 

      So all in all, I share most people's sentiments on this episode. Historia's backstory - great. Erwin's backstory - frickin epic. But I spent the rest of the episode trying to figure out what happened in what order, or what each party is doing at the time of these events.
