    Last time: Eren's emojerk act actually killed some people. Thanks, Dot Pyxis!

    THIS WEEK: The battle of Trost finally ends.

    Opening 1: "Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen (Guren no Yumiya)" by Linked Horizon*
    Ending 1: "This Beautiful Cruel World" by Yoko Hikasa

    "Jean takes desperate measures to replace his broken maneuvering device. Meanwhile, Eren is able to plug the hole in the wall thanks to the help of his fellow cadets, but the cost of humanity’s first victory against the Titans will be gigantic."

    *Since this is the final week we have this theme song, go back and click on the last 12 (including this one) if you haven't yet. You might be surprised.

    So that special thing I mentioned I was making for this week, I decided to push back to posting it on the final week of AoT's run. Just isn't ready yet and I feel it deserves as much work as possible put into it.

    So instead, the AMV you get this week is the one I was planning to post on the off-chance Toonami actually showed the recap episode (which thankfully they won't):

    Anyways, end of the first major arc of the series. Rewatching it so far, I frankly hate the way it's been paced. I can't remember if I marathoned the series the first time or watched once per week, but I don't recall it being this bad.

    Wow, 9 parts? This must be the longest (numbered) anime multi-parter I've ever seen.

    4Kids would be proud.

    I take it you've never watched Mahouka then.

    Previously on Attack on Titan: "We're sorry. Your Titan ran into a problem and needs to restart."

    Last time: Mission Aborted, Chaos Ensues, and Armin snaps Eren out of it just in the nick of time.

    This time: Protect the Rogue Titan while it tries to plug the hole with a boulder.

    Last time: This Titan has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If the problem persists, contact your systems administrator.

    Why did Mikasa jump on his face like that if it wound up knocking him out?

    Oh c'mon AoT. Now you're doing 4 minute recaps too?

    LOL. Looked more like that Titan was huffing that guy than eating him.

    God I hate recaps, at best they are a minor annoyance and at worst they are a freaggin time sponge

    "Why is the trigger so stiff?"

    Probably 'cause you've been using it more than three times a day.

    .....I'm sorry.

    In the words of Seto Kaiba: Oh my God! A giant rock!

    Eren plays the role of Atlas.

    Wow, that will get anyone's attention, Titan or not.
