I was telling Panch his phone has a better chance of running them than the PS3. The subs I've been downloading are .mkv, which are hit and miss (mostly miss) on the PS3's native player, but run great on the free MXplayer for Android. Plus his Note 2 is only slightly smaller than his TV, so what's the problem?

the latter; i fooled myself into thinking maybe they'd pump-fake and give us a male piloting it, but yeah, looking back i dig how they make it seem so obvious

 

now just waiting for the post-fight to see what her intent/angle was!

*sigh*

 

i totally suspect you're right there...once they get into what her motive is (why'd she cry when she didn't keep yeager in the forest? etc), the only other big secret that comes to mind is of course the basement.

my concern right now is once that load is blown, a) im afraid theyll fall back on filler or worse b) the answer will be some illogical twist that i can't abide. Kertz assumes there's some bigger/long game reason for attacking the humans, i hope it's more than default anime motivations like SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST but with her in particular, she read ahead in the manga back when we were watching Death Note regularly & hit some twist where she just lost all interest in the series. i still don't know what went down exactly, been meaning to get back to it myself, but id be lying if i said that hasn't happened before with anime logic that banked too much on whatever-lies-beyond-suspension-of-belief, you know?

 

 

either way, here for this next saturday. now that ive been downloading the eps in HD, i can't go back - shit looks so good

With the reveal of Annie as the Female Titan, and suspicions cast on Marco, my biggest fear is that the threat beyond the walls will a cipher. The series has done a fantastic job with world building and setting up the tantalizing possibilities of the world beyond the wall. Part of me is hoping that Annie is part of a sort of 'sleeper cell' from whatever factions exist beyond the wall (this seems to be supported by the fleeting dream sequence at the start of episode 23, of Annie training in the forest), but if it turns out that there is no external threat, and the abnormal titans are merely a disgruntled faction from within the walls, I have to admit I'd be disappointed....

yeah, me too...one thing lingering (cause the show has referenced it at least twice) is the former cult/group/whatever that used to cannibalize, there's no way that was just tossed out there for the hell of it - given that we've established the titans eat for sport, and initiating becoming one so far means having a purpose + biting human flesh. i can't see this not being tied to them, again just waiting on motive i guess? with the way they keep showing the useless inner city of cowards, i wonder if they'll go in the direction of say batman begins' league of shadows

so, season 2 is still (eventually) coming, and i hear the live action focuses more on the horror aspect so i kinda wanna check it out...but some stuff finally went down in the manga, so i spoiled myself a bit

 

 

apparently they finally went down to the damn basement, and...there's books. but the books & photos apparently give evidence that humanity outside the walls is very much not wiped out, we don't know much more than that.

 

gotta say: if they pull a The Village & people far beyond are living in modern times, with just this pocket stuck in some hellish dark ages....mannnnnnnn

I'm watching the 1st movie right now an am astonished at how good it is. My expectations were low, but this is done really well and legitimately creepy. Now I want to see Shin Godzilla even more knowing the director of it is the same guy.
