Shingeki no Kyojin ep. 5: I only have one thing to say…

I don’t think I have the heart for Shingeki no Kyojin anymore.

azulacries

I just watched the fifth episode, and now a part of my towel is soaked in tears. I think Azula pretty much imitates how much I was crying. I won’t spoil anything, even though what I’ve already said connotes to expecting some tragedy in the new episode.

I really want to read the manga now to find some sort of comfort about the ending but this is one anime where I don’t want to spoil anything for myself. I just want the surprises to keep coming-as heart wrenching as it may be. I can honestly say Shingeki has the most emotional impact on me than any anime I’ve watched so far.

I’ll only mention one thing: the intention of the giant naked people. Apparently they have no interest in fauna except the humans which means they’re a territorial bunch. So they see these tiny people, who look like them and are inhabiting their territory, so they take them on as game to eliminate them. I think I’d just jump off a building if I was in that situation. Somehow I think that’s better than being chomped on or ripped to pieces.

Oh and another thing, the fight scene was pretty cool, I love their little Spider-Man like movements.

Well that’s all.

I think I’ve made a name for this giant.

Eren

I shall call him Kratos, just to distinguish him from the lesser giants. And the armored one shall be named Kronos.

Also, Eren is really becoming quite the motivational speaker. I want to understand the depth of Mikasa’s loyalty to him as well. Somehow, I don’t think it’s just her sense of obligation because he’s family. I think it touches something deeper for her.

The King too! (wow I’m saying more than I intended) How like the king to only be concerned for his own wellbeing. I wasn’t too surprised about that, I really expected him to be that sort of person.

And that is really all I have to say about this episode.

    This episode was AMAZING. Even though I’ve read every manga chapter so far and I know everything that’s going to happen, the anime has been done so well that scenes that I knew were going to happen have even more of an impact! This anime is one of the few that I think is better than its manga counterpart and that’s awesome!

    Also (even though it you definitely would have anyway), you’re going to LOVE the next episode… but that’s all I’m going to say.

    Oh! And, nice post!

        as much as I would love too, I think I’ll just leave you guessing. It will make the experience all the better!

      You have to have a heart of steel for this one…well only if you’re a crybaby like me xD It’s SOOO good. But maybe you should wait til the first season releases all the episodes because the wait for them is really painful ;_;

    Kratos and Kronos, ok, those are good names =) I wonder if they have real names in the story.

      Yup, Gods of War for the win! I think they do. But for now they just give us the class names; Eoten (Colossal Titan), armored Titan and the peasant giants xD. I think the Colossal giant and armored one are the only ones with actual intelligence…
