New chapter is out, CR soon. Reiner may actually not be dead.
Absolute bullshit the amount of asspulls this series has.
Annie is love
Annie is life
Annie is the light of my life
Annie a miracle of the universe
Annie might've done some things wrong, but she's still a beautiful person inside and out
I want to see Bert become more assertive and find happiness in life, as impossible that is in their situation.
> mfw Marcofags were right and there was more to his death than it seemed
Why am I so retarded? Am I the only one who didn't consider Annie killing him despite her having his gear?
What did I fucking think, that she found it on the streets and sacked it because she thought it might come in handy?
Did Armin think of this possibility, did he know she had something to do with his death?
asspulls: the series right here. just fucking kill these faggoty shifters get some new villains. Based Kenny dies and we're stuck with these whiney goofs. gonna give me an aneurysm
There were a few people who speculated about Marco having been killed by BRA as a result of overhearing them since they were shown standing together in Trost, but most anons disregarded this a stupid tumblr-tier theory and didn't think we'd be seeing him again.
I remember that, I didn't believe it either. I never expected to see Marco again. If anything I thought one of the shifters would say Annie stole his gear off his dead body or something just to give closure to that mystery.
I like him as he is as a character. He's not badass or cool despite his power and that's better than being yet another badass. I want him to get development so I'm not complaining, but being assertive doesn't make a good character.
Isayama said he like to do his characters moraly ambiguous. There's hardly a character here who can be called "good".
I dunno, it was a high pressure situation and I don't think he necessarily made the wrong call there. He saw Annie's facade crumbling and he probably felt his own crumbling as well, hence needed reapproval.
It was selfish but understandable, a "don't forget we're in this together!" sort of deal.
In that one scene in Trost where Rainer says "I'm glad you're okay, Annie" and she scoffs him off, do you think Reiner is in his soldier persona or trying to be goody-goody again with Annie after what happened?
Not sure when exactly it happened or I would screencap it, may very well have been even before Marco was killed but not sure.
If that happened before, then Rainer probably got paranoid and his doubts were strengthened after that.
I think it was for a purpose though. Annie clearly had sympathy for humanity and she'd never be able to do what had to be done unless she threw that away. Their job from then on was going to involve directly killing people instead of simply letting titans do most of the work for them. If Annie went into battle and hesitated or messed up in any way then it could cost her her life.
They just support them for the purpose of baiting at this point. It's more then clear by now that BRA is completely evil with absolutely no goal or endgame. They just want to kill because they can, don't even bother replying to BRAfags.
>The book of Ezekiel relates the story of Nebuchadnezzar
>Nebuchadnezzar, continuing his father's work of reconstruction, aimed at making his capital one of the world's wonders. Old temples were restored; new edifices of incredible magnificence were erected to the many gods of the Babylonian pantheon (Diodorus of Sicily, 2.95; Herodotus, 1.183). To complete the royal palace begun by Nabopolassar, nothing was spared, neither "cedar-wood, nor bronze, gold, silver, rare and precious stones"; an underground passage and a stone bridge connected the two parts of the city separated by the Euphrates; the city itself was rendered impregnable by the construction of a triple line of walls.
>she'd never be able to do what had to be done unless she threw that away
This, he actually had the balls to carry the mission and prevented a lot of shit. When Annie spared Armin, he came back to bite her.
Why is every theory fanfic? I don't even care about BRA that much.
Just trying to interpret the clues that were given now that we know what transpired.
If it was before that very well may have affected Rainer and led to him forcing her to take Marco's gear. Seeing her save Connie and them giving him, her fellow warrior on a joint mission, the cold shoulder, could've made him anxious.
Not saying it was the sole reason, maybe just another perceived slight in a long line of aloofness and stress.
>instead of just stabbing him
>she tortures him and throws away the gear
>might've done SOME things wrong.
Yes he did, he was in the Top 10.
Not sure about the order but yeah, he was good.
Armin however didn't place. Ymir would've but she let Historia have it.
I honestly don´t know how you can be sad over any of the deaths that happened in SnK. The only slightly developed/interesting character that died was Kenny.
>I-I never take off my trip to shitpost
>Marco died to show that even the skilled and cool-headed ones are not guaranteed to survive against titans
>skilled and cool-headed
If you overhear someones saying they are spies and directly ask them to confirm when you are alone with them, I can't exactly say you are "skilled and cool-headed".
Reiner said in this chapter there's no one stronger in the world than Bertolt. Obviously he meant because of CT form and below MT most likely. Reiner himself admitted he's shit in combat so no surprise there. Keith's description of Bert is that he is talented in various forms of combat and has great potential. He would give trouble for Eren and Annie definitely. I want to see him fight against Mikasa.
Mikasa couldn't even get to him, even when he had extra weight tied on his back.
Eren is such a princess, getting saved by Mikasa all the time. No wonder he had an inferiority complex, plus she keeps acting like a creepy mixture of personal assistant and mother.
When can they walk side by side as equals?
>getting saved by Mikasa all the time.
I can't remember of no time Mikasa saved him.
>Saved by Hannes
>Saved by Manlet
>Saved by Manlet
>Saved by Erwin and Armin
>Saved by Historia
>Saved by JCL
>You'll die if I'm not around.
What are you talking about? We do know Annie was a slacker in everything and also sucked at teamwork. That's why her grades were so low. We know nothing abouy Bert not trying too hard though, you're just making stuff up.
So since it's ever more likely that MT is Erwin's father, does that mean Erwin might have to kill Levi to save his daddy?
Gif pretty much related.
I don't think you get it. The ranking is determined by only some classes. Hand to hand isn't one of them so Annie didn't partake in it. She tried hard enough in the classes that mattered, she said so herself.
Bert got less points according to Keith because he lacks initiative and leaves it to others, not because he didn't try. Leaving it to others is not trying though, in a different way maybe but still same thing.
I'm not sure if it's that much of a huge advantage unless he's some sort of master tactician.
Any other Titan shifter we've seen so far has understood how 3DMG works as well. Although I guess it's better knowing beforehand than figuring it out as you're fighting.
She won't, she will never see them again.
Wow, he dodged one blow. truly more capable than Mikasa.
That's not what I said, I just want to see them fight. Reiner was busy with Eren and Annie has fought against both of them. What that leaves for Bert? Levi and Erwin can deal MT.
We'll have wait for CR to know for sure. Though in this case it should be si-e-gu in katakana, but with the pronunciation I can see where Isayama is coming from. I too think it's Sieg.
Bert only had a crush on Annie, nothing more. BR see her as their comrade so that's it. At this point Bert is more bonded with Reiner. I'm %100 sure he'd prefer Reiner or even Ymir than Annie, if he ever wants to be with somebody. He's fine on his own too though.
Bert is turning out to be one of the kindest characters at heart, but he should act out more.
So far he doesn't do much in situations that he should be acting on and clearly affect him. He just stood and cried when RA were breaking, and they're the people he cares about the most.
>and come back later to get annie and historia in which they will lose.
Maybe they'll win again. I highly doubt the walls will stay save from now on until the end. They probably will even get destroyed by the wall titans.
He actually looks like someone who would find a stray cat on the streets and take it home.
>save your beloved annie
They might be bros and more bonded but it's weird if after all that talk Annie isn't the number #1 in his heart and doesn't feel more to her than a comrade. Reiner knows what's up and tries to push him and tells him stop denying it. He's a coward so help is needed.
Who but edgelords enjoy killing? Obviously he isn't going to enjoy it, but it also doesn't make him the kindest person in the world either. If he was so kind he would support Annie more.
It's just a crush guys, Bert acts like it's only a crush with blushing and getting excited. He wouldn't be embarrassed if it was real love. He'll be more happy with like R or Y.
>the kindest person in the world
I said one of the kindest characters, not the kindest one, relax. He's still a murderer and should rightfully die for what he did.
>If he was so kind he would support Annie more.
Maybe, but don't forget that he never acts on his own volition.
Reiner: That’s good. For your beloved Annie, let’s overcome this obstacle.
Bertholt: I…I don’t feel that way towards Annie…
Reiner: Even if it’s Annie, if someone appears in front of her at a moment of desperation, she’ll think that person is Prince Charming.
Reiner: And then there is…Christa…
Reiner: For the sake of our agreement with Ymir, we have to rescue her.
That's Isayama's inconsistency. One time his nose looks like Bert's other time Annie's. I still fail to see how he could slightly remember Erwin or his father though.
