Hachimitsu ni Hatsukoi [Chapter 34]

Teary-eyed Koharu apologizes and assures Natsuki that it isn’t because she’s afraid. Recalling how she shouted no and pushed him away, Koharu thinks that she must have startled Natsuki as a boy, and he has a hurt expression. The next day, Natsuki informs Koharu that he has morning practice so he’ll go to school ahead of time. In school, everyone is getting ready for the cultural festival. While painting the signboard for the ‘confession stage’, Koharu’s friends notice that she looks depressed and asks if she isn’t feeling okay, does she want them to help her paint that side. Snapping out of it, Koharu assures them she is fine. She couldn’t tell the others that Natsuki had become a wolf for it is humiliating. Konoha tells Koharu to rest at that side for she is drawing that panda way too scary-looking. While Konoha suggests that Aki draws it since it is for their committee. Then, Koharu overhears Natsuki being called by his friends. The guys are painting the signboard for their class’ haunted theme activity. Koharu mentally apologizes to him for hurting him. She wanted to go straight to him to tell him that but.. Natsuki looks at her and Koharu immediately looks away. This made Natsuki look sad. Koharu looks at him again but he’s leaving. Koharu is flustered for she unconsciously looked away, and she wanted to go to him but couldn’t do it. While some fangirls are bugging Touya as to whom he’ll stroll around with during the festival, he glances at depressed Koharu. By the bulletin board, Kotarou sees the confession stage flyer and wonders out loud about confessing to Sumire. Holding his cellphone, Masamoto muses that the activity that the school’s first idiot lovers are going to host ought to be lucky so he would record tomorrow’s public confession. Natsuki mutters that it must be hard for the other party to have a childish boyfriend like him. Masamoto lightly hits his head and says that they know each other for 16 years, what he is thinking about now when idiots would only think during exams. A student calls Natsuki to help out in the gym. After Natsuki left, Masamoto watches him. Sumire passes by so Kotarou asks her if she’s free during the night festival. She tells him that she has an activity so she couldn’t participate in that. After she left, Kotarou is sad over this. Putting his arm around Kotarou’s shoulder, Masamoto says that it seems that something is going to happen on the cultural festival. At the gym’s stage, Natsuki sees Touya putting paper roses on a sign board. Climing up the stage, Natsuki asks if he is also called and laughs about the activity committee being too pressed by others. To Natsuki’s irritation, Touya snubs him. Natsuki casually mentions that it’s great that his cold is well now. Touya says that it is because Koharu took care of him. He mentions that the congee is delicious, and she’s quite a good kid to sincerely worry about him. Natsuki angrily tells him not to casually let someone’s girl to go in his house. Touya answers back that he really doesn’t know why Koharu chose him for if it is him, he definitely won’t make her have a pained expression.
Just when Natsuki is asking if he [has feelings] towards Koharu, a basketball flies on stage. Natsuki catches it. A guy apologizes and asks if the two wanted to also play. Natsuki and Touya glare at each other. Meanwhile in class, Koharu is fitting her cat costume. Konoha hugs her for she’s so cute. Aki dresses up as a yuki-onna [snow lady] and it fits her perfectly. Konaha believes that they’ll get first prize. Koharu asks if it is okay for Aki to help her class. Aki says that it is okay for the special class won’t participate and she wants to cheer on Nishina’s class. Koharu is envious over Aki and Nishina’s close connection even if they aren’t going steady. Koharu felt that ever since they’ve become lovers, and mistaken about their true feelings happen a lot than when they are childhood friends. A guy comes in class to announce over the heated basketball duel between Natsuki and Touya. Koharu is surprised by this. Back in the gym, Natsuki has the ball, shoots and scores. Girls squeal over Natsuki and others cheer for Touya. Natsuki taunts Touya that an [liberal/humanities] arts guy ought to just stay at home. Touya grabs the ball and evades Natsuki. Touya says too bad for who made the sports idiot unreliable. Natsuki tries to get the ball back and.. In class, Koharu has already changed back to her uniform. Konoha asks her if she isn’t going. Koharu excuses herself by saying that she’ll tidy up the room and she is already tired of seeing Natsuki playing basketball. After Konoha left, Koharu starts to cry because she doesn’t know how think about it since she obviously likes Natsuki yet she hurt him. She tries to stop herself from crying when Masamoto arrives and tells him that Natsuki is injured from hitting the score board [<- it is translated as accumulation machine so I’m guessing that it is the score board ^^;] Koharu rushes to the clinic to find Natsuki putting an adhesive bandage on his hand. Koharu exclaims that he’s quite lively. He tells her that it is only a scratched skin. She protests that Masamoto said that it was serious. Natsuki tells her that he was lying. Koharu realizes that they are talking normally. Natsuki apologizes for he obviously wanted to cherish her but he couldn’t control his feelings that he startled her, and he really doesn’t suit to be her boyfriend. Just when Koharu tries to protest, Natsuki tells her to say it to him if she doesn’t want him to be her boyfriend. Looking determined, he says that he’ll work harder to become a good boyfriend who’ll suit her. “I’ll become the world’s number 1 boyfriend and make you, Koharu, the world’s happiest person!” Crying Koharu tells him that she is quite moved that she’s afraid and ever since he became her boyfriend, he became more and more cool[/handsome], and she already likes him so much that she doesn’t know what to do. Koharu thinks that he is already the world’s number 1 boyfriend earlier on. He holds her and happily says that he likes her the most. He quickly lets go and asks if he can touch her. She says yes. Then, they kiss. Koharu thinks that from today on, there will definitely be more perplexities but it is definitely alright because love’s future is decided by feelings[/intention]. And, in the end, Touya is holding an application for the confession activity.
Comment: Well, apologizes are accepted, confessing their feelings for each other again and there’s a somewhat promise of Natsuki to do it better so things ought to go smoothly for them now. Hehe, I guess Natsuki won’t try that again in the near future unless initiated by Koharu. So, that only leaves for Koharu to reject Touya and no more problems in the horizon. I find it amusing and irksome (if I think of what Touya could be thinking/feeling) over how Natsuki, just like Koharu, tend to get Touya involve in their problems/love life when Touya is pretty much ‘minding his own business’. From that conversation, I wonder what Natsuki’s intention was when he mentioned about the cold. It made me think that it is somewhat like he’s initiating or provoking Touya to say something to him. Probably knowing Natsuki’s intention and partly because of his jealousy, Touya mentions more than what Natsuki wanted to hear. ^^; Anyway, I hope something interesting happens aside from the imminent rejection of Touya.

  1. Thanks for the summary! fufu a basketball match between Natsuki and Touya made me laugh. I think Touya provoked Natsuki on purpose to make him angry. Maybe Touya is testing Natsuki to see how serious he is about Koharu. <3 Tika

  3. Ugh, this story is starting to sound like another, 360 Degrees. Marui is also a confirmed dirtbag that wants to steal someone else's girlfriend. I hope Touya has second thoughts and takes the higher route, but from the conversation in this chapter I think he's going to travel the douchebag path.

    1. Is that so.. I haven't read that series. Well, it is likely and yet not. If the mangaka wants to drag this, Touya would most likely go that path. Not..since Touya is not really actively breaking them up YET as in 'doing something' whereas in this chapter, it is more of 'voicing out frustration and jealous'-type of thing.

      We'll know for sure in the coming chapters and what would happen in the cultural festival.

      Delete
  4. I think Touya would try his best to win Koharu's affection. But in the end, since Koharu can only see Natsuki, I think that he'll do the gentleman's honor and let the two of them be. Then we have a happy ending! Hahaha

    Replies
    1. Ya, it is probable. And, aside from that, maybe Natsuki would show that he's also the 'right/better man' for Koharu.

      Okay, I'm not sure if that will happen because in another series in Shocomi, 17sai, has recently, already done that. ^^;

    2. It made me curious about that series. Maybe I'll read it too.

    3. Can I know who's the writer/mangaka of that 17sai?

    4. The mangaka is Yagami Rina.

  5. kat first of all i apologize for writing here while it has nothing to do with AOT but i have too many things to say to write them down in the tag board i hope it doesn't bother you^^i read AOT from chapter 34 to 38 and it was mind blowing o_O i don't even know where to begin but first i wanted to make a comment on the difference between the anime and the manga the anime in my opinion portrayed some scenes better than the ones shown in the manga such as the scene where eren get ready to fight annie in the anime we could see his hesitation motivation and rage and it was well done while in the anime eren just bit his finger and said indeed it is a cruel word and then he went to fight

  6. well now let's get down to the manga chapter 34 it was mikasa who discovered the titan and it is alive and i had the same reaction as hanji what if the whole wall is made up with titan and it was revealed later on that the wall were made by the hardened skin of the titans and eren was asked to use himself and plug the wall and we were right about the religious guys they are the ones who guard the secret of the walls THE pastor said it was their mission and they even have a pledge that they respect but above all what caught my attention is when eren told pastor nik is there something more important than humanity survival and hani said yes according to the pastor and now more than ever i wanna know who is the big boss

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup..can you imagine how the anime is going to 'change things' because of their ending since in the manga, it is continuing. In short, there's no rest for everyone. And, Eren is still confined in his basement bedroom.

      Ya..though I actually wondered if Eren can indeed plug the hole since his powers are eratic and he doesn't quite know how to use it. I have a theory for those walls but you'll have to read the latest chapter for that..well, you might also guess it ^^

      So, I wonder if only those higher ups in the religious group knows about this..that's why I pity those who got killed during Annie's rampage..did they actually know what they are worshiping?

      That's right..what is more important than humanity survival? It seems like the priest didn't know what's happening outside the walls. So, there are a number of people who knew but kept their mouth shut..and close their eyes to what's going on because of the 'peace' within and something else. I get an impression that they are promised something that they are keeping it a secret.

      Delete
    2. yes unlike annie who has a great mastery over her titan's powers eren is still lacking but it was said before that his titan power have something to do with his will so if he set his mind to it he will probably be able to do it .i don't know about that maybe there are other people like eren and annie 's fathers both of them seems to know the truth and they weren't part of the religous group maybe there are chosen people who know the secret. well like you said before the people can't put their faith in the recon because of their failures but they still need hope to live on and thus they decided to believe in the religous guys and their ideals but i don't think they know what they are worhsiping. well i believe that there is someone who is keeping them in the dark about the reality of the walls in order for the religious guys to keep their mouths shut becaus if they see what is going on in reality they may give up on their mission and talk

      Delete
    3. In a way..yes.

      Annie's father is different. Will discuss that later on when you read more chapters. Eren's father, I presume, because he seems to know the people within the high position/inner city. As I've mentioned before, he supposedly cured people from a certain plague which I'm presuming to be titan-related. And, yup, it is strange that they keep it a secret even if they die for it. It is like a 'code of silence' and bringing the secret to one's grave.

      Probably..but the pastor is seeing it but as he admitted, he rather make someone else be the one who'll tell the secret. And, since they are under attack, they currently cannot nab any other pastors to make them talk.

      Delete
    4. maybe he is the one who found a way to turn human into titans or it maybe the other way around titan into human.yes and that's what make it so scary what the hell is this secret that they would rather die then reveal curiosity is killing me.

      Delete
  7. i mean just who is the person that annie and the religious would prefer to die than reveal intel on them and hanji when she confronted pastor nick i could feel that despite her usual crazy behaviour hanji has real depth she is angry as much as eren maybe it just that she learned to control that anger. and what if armin was right and the titans inside the walls will awake and decide to take a walk it will be the end cause if they are all colosal titan i don't see how they can defeat them.and erwin seems like he has acknowledged armin somehow since he asked him to attend the meeting and mikasa blushing does it mean that she realized that she love eren? i loved how erwin gave a side glance to the religious guys when he said that they were gonna take down annie 's allies.

    1. Yup..that's why I'm guessing that maybe the king is a titan or maybe, someone who is a titan-human decided to side the poor humans and gave them a little chance to fight back from becoming extinct..something like that. So in a way, titans are also protecting them via the walls.

      Indeed, Erwin acknowledges Armin, after all, he gave them the major hint on who is the FT. Hm..Mikasa, I'm not too sure if she knew or not. Ya..

      Delete
    2. i don't know anymore things are gettting crazy i feel like the reveal of the big villain will be something we didn't see coming.that's cool maybe armin can learn to be badass like erwin^^

      Delete
    3. Yup ^^

      Maybe he will.. though honestly, I've been wondering of Erwin's fighting abilities. Armin seems to be quite far off from actually killing a single titan.

      Delete
    4. yeah me too i know that he has great leadership but what about his fighting skills i think he is strong i mean he has to be he is the boss of the recon after all or maybe like we said before levi is the sword and erwin the brain well armin is weak he only got a brain

      Delete
  8. and kat i can't help but think about armin's words "we have been protected by titans" what if it is the truth what if the walls were made from titans and build by them?well it wasn't for the purpose of protecting them it seems like you said before they just put them in the wall so they can eat them later on.and it seems like mike isn't the only one with developed senses sasha also has the same ability how she could hear them and mike smell them.and then there was chapter 35 OMG !!!!!! what the hell was that ape-titan???????

    1. Yup..or read above. That's right ^^ It makes me think that she is the 'substitute' for him since their 'instincts through senses' is quite good.

  9. poor mike was so shocked that he couldn't even speak i felt the same OMG it was extremely intelligent based on the way he spoke and yeah he spoke well it wasn't really shocking since i saw a titan talk in the side story called ilse's notebook but the ape titan he was well he was scary and i conculded stuff from what he said first of all he isn't a human since he was asking about the 3D gear so maybe the whole titan wasn't started by humans and the secret of the titans is something truly unexpected .i mean those who seems to know that secret are willing to die rather than reveal it ,mike's death was kind of sad how he died devoured despite saying he was the second strongest after levi maybe now it will be mikasa spot^^.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup..he was scary. What do you mean by, the whole titan thing wasn't started by humans? I don't understand. ^^;

      Ah..he's the second strongest? Tsk..too bad..a major loss for recon.

      Delete
    2. i wanted to say that since the ape titan was asking about the 3D gear then he probably isn't human so maybe the theory we had about how human were behind the titan invasion was wrong but then again there was the thing with connie's mum she was turned by a human? or maybe by a titan .i don't know i'm trying to make sense but things are getting confusing.

      Delete
    3. Well, maybe he was an evolved one [from human] and lived many years ago..hehe you know ape = evolution theory so he probably lived a long time ago. Then, came to check out how the humans are killing off titans..or stopping them from making humans extinct. So, he's asking what is this 3D gear.

      Of course, we have not know how humans are turned into titans..is it a natural process, experiment, etc? And, how titans turned into humans..are those special for the intelligent ones.

      Delete
    4. that's a good point since it was said that titans were already there a century ago so maybe that's the case. maybe some titans or human or titna-human have the power to turn others.like i said it is becoming difficult to predict

      Delete
  10. chapter 36 was nice and simple mainly focused on sasha it seems like she is a good archer^^it was funny and kind of scary how she fought with her dad because of the food^^ i loved what her dad told her about how if you don't help others than you don't have the right to ask for help no matter what kind of danger you are in how everything in the world is tied it was nice. Chapter 37 not much happened i loved the way levi treated that religious guys he doesn't act soft even with important people and he was right about everything he told him.

    Replies
    1. Yup, she's from a hunter family. Ya, that's was nice ^^

      Hehe, somehow I feel that Levi's beating of Eren traumatized him enough to make him scared of him even if he kind of denies it =P Yup, after all, Levi is a 'former thug' so..

      Delete
    2. hahahaha well that was shocking the way levi kicked him but this kind of beating will be good for eren since he is hot blooded he need someone to cool him down and like levi said pain is the best way to discipline someone .it must be the habit he got from his former career

      Delete
    3. Yup.. though I think that was for show about Eren has to cool down and he has to be disciplined because later on, Levi admitted that he is a monster for 'not wanting to be tied down'.

      Actually, as mentioned before, that 'hot blooded' thing is good and bad depending on the situation and, he is learning to temper it ^^

      Delete
    4. yup i know that it was also a mean to show the higher ups that he could keep eren in check but it was scary how he beat him up he showed that could be ruthless even against humans and i like that^^ yup in their job the recon have to make risky bets to achieve victory but then again this hot blooded attitude may turn against them.

      Delete
    5. Yup..he is pretty much 'don't mess with me' type of guy ^^

  11. so christa has something to do with the wall i really didn't see that coming and ymir also cause i remember in the side story when the titan talked to the scout girl he told ymir sama or yimirou sama something like which means she probably has something to do with the walls and she must be someone important since sama was added to her name and by the way are christa and ymir in a love relationship well i'm saying this mainly because of ymir she even asked chirsta to marry her i know it was a joke but still .look like mikasa isn't angry with levi that's good .Chapter 38 was nice i felt sorry for connie so it is like we thought normal titans are humans.and yeah in this chapter there was reiner comment on ymir you don't look like a girl who is interessted in men i mean this comment kind of emphasis my point of the yuri vibes i got from ymir^^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya, and I wonder if Christa is some sort of royal blood-type of thing of the ones who caused the wall to be made or something since she seems to be very important. It makes me think of those 'she's a god' jokes before, actually mean/hint something. Ymir is quite attached to her and it seems like yuri/gl ^^ Well, they do have a 'special relationship'.

      Yup..and Levi even gave her an advice.

      Ya..and I wonder what is the trigger for it. Was something done to them to make them into titans? It makes me wonder if it is the ape titan since he seems the one leading the pack.

      Delete
    2. well she might be from a royal blood line since her family know about the secret of the walls and i don't think this secret is revealed to just anybody.yeah it might be a hint that she comes from an important family.well it will make sense if he is the one who did since like you said he seems like a boss among titans.

      Delete
    3. Yup..and I wonder if that 'royal blood' thing is 'titan related'.

      Delete
    4. well titans and humans are closely tied so probably but i said it and i will say it again it is too difficult to predict^^

      Delete
  12. and why was he so surpised that ymir could read the characters by the way is it me or is there something going on between reiner and ymir??? like some kind of secret and there is also something going on between reiner and the black haired guy who is always with him the way they give each other glances i'm not gonna be surprised if reiner end up being a human-titan he really is fishy i started doubting him when annie kind of crushed him and he was fine .AND THEY LOOKED SHOCKED WHEN THEY SAW THE APE TIAN AND DAMN DID HE JUST CLIMB THE WALL IF HE GET IN IT WILL BE TH END.i stoped at chapter 38 the whole thing gave me a headache so many stuff happened it beame impossible to predict.

    Replies
    1. Hehe..it is something else but I think the characters on the can are something that only titans can read or something. Ah, I suddenly thought of a certain anime wherein they are fighting some enemies who kills humans but it turns out that they are also humans that kind of evolved so maybe AoT is a bit like that. But then, they are still within the wall which didn't explain why that food with those characters are there. Unless, it used to be a base for human-titans.

      Well, he is acting fishy and what you've mentioned about it regarding Annie to me before, makes me think he is one. And, I had a gut feel who he was while reading it...the hair.

      I think the Ape titan did get in..the thing is, I think he might changed into 'human' there..maybe a hairy ape-looking guy. So, it is like enemy within like what Annie was doing.

      I cannot blame you..it is really information overload. Each chapter is quite eventful/informative in its own way..and you'll get really tense-excited over how unpredictable things will be ^^

      Delete
    2. can the titans read? well if it the ape titan i won't be surprised but others i don't think so maybe there are classes among the titans like the ape titan who is intelligent and strong rule over the lower titans who seems stupid .so maybe in the titan "society" it work that way the ones who are smart and strong rule over the ones who are stupid or maybe the characters are from a very old language and since ymir is a teen she shouldn't know it .this maybe a hint that ymir is older than she looks since she know something that she shouldn't know maybe she is a titan in the shape of a human because if a human can turn into a titan the opposit may also be true right? i think he is the armored titan based on his hair style and colour and his huge build and above all he is too fishy it seems like he is trying to meddle .scary when you think that awsome titan who can crush them in one second is walking with them i feel sorry for the people. yes it is very exciting and confusing since the more i read the more i have questions and you need to pay attention to everything since details have great importance in the manga.

      Delete
    3. Yup, there seems to be a titan society. And also, it seems that ordinary titans are driven by instinct to devour humans..that they will eat 'human form titans' like Eren and Annie. It doesn't seem to be ruling over the stupid..the ordinary titans. Actually, since there are 'abnormals' who are a bit intelligent..are they originally like that or gradually become like that after some time.

      Ya..you're on to something but I won't spoil you ^^ You're questions would be somewhat answered later on.

      Yup ^^

  13. kat i have finally caught up with the manga i read all the chapters till chapter 50 and OMG it was amazing before giving my opinion on what happened i wanted to say something about some scenes that were just beastly such us yimir jumping down the castle in her titan form ,mikasa jumping in to save chirsta and then the next pannel where we see the recon fight the titans eren jumping off the wall in his titan form to fight the armored titan and how enraged he was and of course when the colosal titan jumped on the top of them those scenes were amazing but and i can't wait to see them being animated with great soundtracks it will be epic .

  14. what can i say about those chapters except that there was much revealtions and a lot of questions but overall just amazing.well those chapters revolved mainly around three characters reiner the other guy and ymir and also christa.i will start with yimr i can't say i was surprised by the fact that she was a titan cause i started having doubts after the side story where the girl from the recon met a titan and she could her yimr sama .but there was something that surprised me she was alive 60 years ago even if she look like a teen so the human_titans not only get regeneration powers but also longevity this make me even more curious as to how humans were granted such power...or maybe they aren't humans???? and yeah it seems like they suffer from memory loss and since that black haired guy said eren was the same i was wondering if he didn't know the whole truth and just forgot about it i think we talked about it before.and yeah i think it is comfirmed that she hold romantic feelings for chirsta and i think christa also likes her how she was all like "im always on your side "i don't like that character i find her annoying so if she dies i wouldn' really care.

    1. Yup. You did..I only suspect it later on with the tin can talk with Reiner.

      Yup..that is strange, and it makes me think that probably Reiner and Bertholdt are older than they look..maybe including Annie so they are more experienced, perhaps? I still think that they used to be humans..then kind of evolved as titans. There was a mention about having a village so..

      True..and now that I think of it, Eren's father seems to know about the memory loss thing since he told Eren he will forget after he injected him with whatever that was at Eren.

      Hehe, is that so..well, it is slightly annoying but I'm just glad that she can somehow fight = not a total damsel in distress. =P I wonder what she knows..

      Delete
    2. well with the talk i was almost sure about it i was only waiting for it to be comfirmed^^.ya and they may also explain why they see humanity's fight as a lost cause because if they are indeed older than they look they probably know of the enemy true strength and know that everything humans may do will be pointless but kat i have a questions if those titans-humans were once humans how come they turned against humanity reiner said it himself they came to wipe out humans i mean it doesn't make sense why would a human want to kill no to eradicate his peers..or like we discussed before they were brainwashed?you know kat i think that eren and annie's fathers were part of a group that worked for the big boss and somehow they had to offer their children to become "warrior" but then again why would their parents work for people or things who want to destroy humanity.i hope she start talking soon real soon cause the suspense is killing me

      Delete
    3. Maybe they think that they are a 'superior' race and would want to dominate the world by destroying the 'inferior' ordinary humans? That isn't exactly unbelievable since it did happened/does happen in real life.

      That is possible though I think Eren's father sided with the humans. He did helped cure that plague thing before..which could have killed lots more people than titans within the walls.

      Hm..I don't think that Annie will talk soon..I think the mangaka would keep us guessing as well as the characters in the story..that's part of the suspense.

      Delete
    4. frankly speaking as log as it isn't a dumb reason like "you let rin die " then i will be ok with it.maybe at first he sided with
      the titans side but at some point he became aware that they were in wrong so he left and sided with the humans.about the plague what if the thing he cured was preventing humans from turning into titans.ya i'm sad and happy about it at the same time the suspense will be kept till the very end

    5. Or..maybe he fell in love with a human, his wife =P That is why Eren mentioned that his father changed after his mother died.

      I was thinking that was what the plague was. Or perhaps, if he is human, he found out the secret while finding the cure for the plague.

    6. yeah this may be the cause like eren said he was really shaken so why not ......who knows but i still think he is in the homeland that reiner and his friend were talking about

      Delete
  15. and yeah she said she stole titan powers from reiner and the the other guys commardes this made it even more confusing as to how a human get titan powers at first i thought that one needed to take special medcines or something like that but accroding to what she said you can "steal " them.
    then there is reiner i felt the same thing as eren that guy is just a disgusting bastard i mean maybe he forgot who he was or whatever but it doesn't change the fact that he is a freaking hypocrite and i hate that kind of person above all .i mean he was preaching and bitching about how to help humanity and that kind of crap and he is revealed to be the biggest bastard in the serie(for now cause yimr made it clear that he and the colossal titan are just small fry) at least annie and the other guy were quiet and didn't make speeches about how to be a soldier and yeah i think he is also older than he looks of cours his black haired friend i wonder if it is the same with annie????and seems like the three are old friends at least they come from the same place the famous "homeland" i wonder what is going on there ,if the people there are the ones behind it all the titan matter maybe eren's dad is there ??? and it seems like yimr betrayed them and is scared of them so maybe they aren't humans ....and you know kat after reading those chapters i feel like annie reiner and the other guys were brainwashed into thinking they were warriors or something like cause it was mentioned by each of them and in chapter 49 i think when eren classmates were on the top of reiner the other guy looked really sorry so i was wondering if they were doing this out of free will???and yeah reiner is a creepy bastard it was so weird when he was talking about getting a promotion!!!!

    1. I thought it was because she ate the one with power to retain one's sanity and have some sort of human form? So, she kind of stole the powers.

      For Reiner, I think it is due to being 'too much in character' something like an actor who is so into the role he is playing, he cannot separate his own true self from the role. Indeed, he is the talkative one. Yup, they are from the same place and they are probably human-titans..like, was Annie's father also a titan? Was her father's regret was he trained her too well that now, she is sent for this mission?

      Well, I'm also thinking if it is possible that Eren's father is from that place since he seems to know a lot. Yup, Ymir is quite afraid. They shouldn't be humans, and they ought to be quite powerful. I mean, Annie and the others who know would rather shut up and die than spill the beans.

      In a way, it is free will because I recall Bertholdt saying that someone has to do it. Since the word used is 'warriors', I thought that their village is a bit more primitive and probably made of human-titans. They are probably brainwashed but then, they must have enough 'mental power/acting skill' to infiltrate the city and fulfill their mission.

      Well, there is also the slight memory loss when becoming titan..also, I think they really got along well with the others that they kind of feel sorry for what they are doing..well, specifically, towards their classmates. Iirc, they were together for around two years, right?

      Delete
    2. maybe who knows ....it is becoming harder and harder to guess the true nature of the titans and their powers.yup he tried so hard to fit into his character that he forgot about his true identity but i still finding him disgusting and annoying.like i said kat above maybe the children were made to take their parents places maybe they were titan-human themselves and maybe that's why annie's dad was apologizing because he took the burden from his shoulders and placed it on a young child.yup all of those who know are really scared and would rather die than reveal the truth.well i think that at first they were forced then brainwashed then maybe they started to behave in their own free will and that's unforgiveable.yeah but it doesn't change the fact that they caused a lot of harm to their "friends" and like eren said they aren't warriors just mass killers

    3. Ya, most probably.

      That's right.

  16. then there was bertholt or whatever his name was i didn't know this guy existed only after i start reading the manga i was kind of surprised to learn that he was the colossal titan because of his quiet personality but well if we consider how close he is with reiner who was revealed to be the armored titan and since both attacked at the same it makes a little bit of sense what can i say about his guy except that he seems to be a crybaby and a coward it was funny how scared he was of mikasa and he likes annie???i didn't see that coming and the fact that the three of them were working together was also surprising i mean like mikasa said we never saw them talk and look like they were exchanging intel she told reiner about christa's true identity and he told her about eren position .mikasa had some amazing scenes when she cut off reiner arm and almost bertolt 's neck it was awsome or when they were chasing after eren and co she looked really scary when she was threatening to kill all of them but during chapter 50 she looked creepy when she smiled i mean it was so weird and is it me or was it a confession???and she had a jealousy scene when annie was training with eren and she dare say he is family^^christa or historia should i say i don't care about that character i didn't take a liking on her i hope next chapter she start talking she seems like a nice girl so i wonder why she hasn't talked sinc she knows the truth fear maybe or she wanted to play dead???since she is an illegtimate child?well i hope she start talking soon i'm dying to know the TRUTH by the way i have to mention the hannes armin and mikasa scene at the top of the wall this scene was very touching especially since i know he died in ch50 by the titan who killed their mothers and what make it sad is that he was kind of a father figure for the three friends that's the way i see it it was touching when he said i wanna go to the old days when i was just a drunkhard old soldiers and you three kids causing troubles or something like that i loved the whole speech^^.commander erwin OMG he lost his arm at one point i thought he died until i saw jump in and free eren is he weak ?? or was her just caught off guards but it was intense when he lost his arm the others stopped to check on him and he shouted advance i admire him because he truly does care and is ready to sacrifice anything for humanity he really is a brave guy.

    1. Hehe..he indeed has a low profile. When I re-watched the earlier episode to see the top 10, I already saw him and curious what his story is since most of Eren's classmates are 'special'.

      Yup, he's a coward. Remember when Eren tried to attack him the first time, he immediately went 'poof' to hide. Ya..it is somewhat of a surprise though I have been seeing some fan pictures of the three together so I've already started to suspect something about them. ^^;

      Ya, that was quite amazing and she is really taking what Levi told her to heart. Well, you know, Mikasa, don't mess with her especially if it's Eren-related. I think it is somewhat of a confession. Yup, and I wonder who won that - Annie or Mikasa? Actually, it was already hinted when Mikasa asked Eren if he had special feelings for Annie that is why he couldn't transform to fight her as FT :P

      Probably, it seems that Crista has some confidence issues. Also, I thought it was only a joke before about her being a 'god/goddess' but it seems that she is somehow going to fulfill that role in letting them know what she knows.

      Ya..I get a feeling that he'll die when they are having that talk and he joins the rescue.

      Is that so..I thought he lived when some men went towards him though I didn't expect him to free Eren. Ya, that scene was intense and he's quite amazing there.

      Delete
    2. ya but again kat the scene where he was freaking out because of mikasa entering her mad-badass mode was so funny :)
      yeah she was great i would love to see her work with levi in the future maybe she can learn from him both in skills and behaviour be more cool and level headed even if it involves eren ^^.and she looked creepy while smiling don't you think so?who knows maybe it will be revealed in another flashback???ya it seems like it was a hint and some kind of forshadowing about her future role .

    3. Yup ^^ And, hopefully, before a major fight, their injuries are already healed.

      Hehe..didn't quite noticed since sometimes I feel that art is off. ^^;;

  17. and of course there was the big reveal of why annie and co were trying so hard to get eren he can control titan ,i had a feeling eren was somehow special but i didn't imagine he had this kind of power but how did they know it was him ??? he is the cordinator that's awsome if he can controle this then it is wonderful all the stuff he could do and reiner said it fell in the hands of the worst possible person is it because of his personality or something else???and yeah there is the beast titan that guy was standing on the top of the wall and no one noticed???look like both reiner and his buddy were looking for him to go back to their homeland so he is special after all not just scary and creepy and how the hell did they get in if the wall wasn't breached did the monkey killed humans and turned them into titans ....this is confusing i hope next chapter contain more reveal and not more questions.and yeah kat i don't know if you noticed but each of eren's classmates has an important role in the story i mean not only do they have their own skills but they seems to add something to the plot and that's wonderful i hate it when an author introduces characters and then forget about them.I think this is all what happened im excited and very confused about AOT and obviously i'm dying for the future chapters^^

    1. I don't think they know that it is him. I recall in some part that they are looking for the coordinator and capturing Eren is just a 'side mission'. I was wondering then what is this coordinator thing. And, to Reiner's worst nightmare, Eren is the coordinator.

      I think it is because they probably want to use the coordinator to destroy/kill all humans..and opps, it fell into the hands of the one who wanted to kill all titans. That is why I think, Ymir thinks that there is hope for the ones within the walls and gave up on taking Christa with them.

      I think the monkey titan had turned into human and went in the city so that would be trouble. I also think he was the one who made those humans into titans, the ones in Connie's village. It was night then so they probably didn't notice. So, it is like, he climbed the wall, turn humans into titans to distract the others, then went in. As the others mentioned, it seems to be a plot and someone is toying with them.

      Yup, I noticed and as I hinted to you before, Eren's classmates/batch is 'special' :P Ya, it is nice that all of them have a role in the story.

      Also, I don't know about you but unless they get some 'time off' = no more major titan attacks for a long period of time, I get a feeling that Recon is about to go extinct since most of them are either dead or injured. The intensity of this series is really majorly intense..we're cheering that they are winning and suddenly, they are losing, then winning again..alternating hope and despair.

      Well, I think we'll have a new chapter soon. ^^

      Delete
    2. yeah you are right.....i wonder if he is someone we know or just a random old man.that's a good point maybe he turned connie's village into titans so as to distract others and get in while others were busy fighting for their lives.yes i also noticed it levi mikasa hanji and erwin are wounded others like connie eren jean....must be in shock because of reiner and bertholdt 's (or whatever his name is) betrayal and there is also hannes'death which surely shocked our three heroes and of course a lot of deaths so yeah they should take it easy or the recon will be no more.
      yes it is truly an amazing work more than that in my opinion it is a master piece each time i read a chapter i hold my breath because of the intensity of the situations the characters are facing and of course because of the characters themselves who are realistic each on of them has a solid background and that's cooool ^^ i love AOT

      Delete
    3. Yup..and sniffing guy is dead. It makes me wonder if Eren and others would have to 'grow up'/learn fast to replace or help out recon more than they did. Hehe, and Levi would be their 'slave driver' teacher. Fufufu.. with their interactions, personalities and stuff, maybe we get some funny scenes from that.

      Yup ^^

      Delete
    4. ya and chapter 51 ending was all about that i can't believe that all of his remaining classmates are part of levi's squad i thought maybe mikasa since she is good but others.oh well like you said it will be really funny to watch them considering levi's grumpy personality and the rookies and their funny personalities such as sasha .the chapter was ok it comfirmed what we thought titans are humans but the explanation as to why their neck is their weak point was simple but it made sense.i felt sorry for connie when he saw his mum and also hanji she was clearly shocked as she remembered what she has done to other titans.i also felt sorry for erwin when he said that he is gonna pay his debts in hell i mean that guy is a hero yet he has a low esteem about himself that's sad and so he joined the recon because he was creepy but it is kind of amazing to see him smile after all what happened losing arm....because they finally got a clue and levi is really nice guy despite being grumpy how he was shocked over killing former humans we noticed once but he is alot softer than erwin so now they are all hidden that's a good move since they don't know if another titan-human exist and it may want to take both eren and christa the scene where eren was saying to jean if he and saha cleaned their shoes with a serious look was funny and when jean yelled at him for spying on mikasa that was also funny ^^ i thought about the fanart you told me about grumpy levi baby sitting the rookies i have the feeling that we will see that soon he will be their teacher from hell^^ it was kind of sad when eren recalled levi's former squad well like you said let's hope they all improve and grow but kat we may see a mikasa xlevi combo in the near future and it will be badass and kat i have a question what did christa mean at the beginning we have to hurry and go to the wall???

      Delete
    5. Hehe..ya, well, I guess it counts that since the attack when they just 'graduated', they still survived so it must mean something. And, no wonder Levi's squad was wipeout..they would be the replacements. It reminds me of an anime which started like that..episode 1, all the cast where killed..then a new real cast takes over at episode 2.

      Yup..connecting to the brain..and if it is titan-human or vice-versa, the person is the 'connector' thus they somehow keep their consciousness, I guess.

      True..it seems that Hanji and Levi are shock that what they are experimenting/killing are humans. From Levi's comment, it makes me think that he was thinking, 'this isn't what I've signed up for'.

      Yup..that smile was kind of creepy. And, from some comments I've read, is it possible that he is smiling because if titans are indeed humans..maybe, he can use what Eren had so that he can get his arm back. What do you think? There are others hinting on something like Hanji and Levi hiding things from Erwin..like Levi making his own squad and where Eren and the others are hiding. Or, that is just thinking too much?

      Ya..Levi is indeed a good guy inside. I think it was evident when Levi mentioned his acknowledgement for the people who delayed the FT and etc..while Erwin is more stoic..somewhat indifferent. Of course, it might be because Erwin has more experience and everything..since in Levi's side story, he is already in recon. Also, I don't know if I'm mistaken but in the first episode of the anime, during the recon's return, I think Erwin was there but not yet the commander. ^^;

      Ya, that was funny. If Mikasa would probably 'inherit' Levi's fighting skills, Eren would get his cleaning skills =P Or, he is just so afraid of Levi which is kind of funny. When I first saw his outfit, I thought..is he imitating Levi. And, isn't it amusing that he is like a housewife whereas Mikasa is the 'man' chopping wood =P It makes me think that subconsciously even if Eren has differences with his mother, he somewhat emulates her and really loves her. After all, she is his drive for his goal in killing all titans.

      Ya..hopefully, it is somewhat fun..and as you've mentioned, they learn a lot more skills, etc before the next major attack. True..maybe a combo and Armin can devise new attacks for them given what they've learned so far.

      True..that was sad. It does seem that Eren can easily get 'traumatized' in some way. I wonder if that was some sort of foreshadowing of more deaths or it is just Eren's fear of what would happen to them later on..like what happened to the former squad.

      I don't quite get that..maybe they are easy targets if they are there? Though at first, I was wondering if Eren and the others would suddenly want to accomplish their mission in sealing the wall and heading to the basement but after what happened, they would be very stupid to do that after what they've barely survived with. So, maybe it will be explained later on.

    6. kat i have been thinking about something up until now it is clear that there are various types of titans :the humans-titans which are humans who can controle titans.there are regulars titans which were former humans they are mindless .there are the deviant types i think this type of titans are the humans who still retain some thing of their "humanity" so they couldn't turn into a regular titans that's why they behave in a strange manner what do you think?
      ya and kat what if both start hesitating in killing titans espcially levi since he always has to fight .maybe they will start thinking maybe this one was my friend so i can't kill him or something like that .they shouldn't let this information out because even if some manage to get over the fact that the titans are former humans i'm sure many won't be able to overlock this fact so it may cause problems maybe they will be people who will resgin from the recon...
      i don't see him as someone who will do something for himself so i don't think so....i also thought about this what if erwin was "evil" so levi and hanji decided to hide stuff from him but maybe it is just that he is injured and they know he really is devoted to their humankind so he may want to rush there in order to avoid having erwin overwork himself they decided to keep him in the dark but if he ends up being evil i will be shocked cause he has done so much for humanity.
      ya maybe erwin has more experience and maybe something happened in his childhood that made him the way he is i think he was the commander since the start.
      hahhahaha maybe he is inherited his love for cleaning (at first i thought he was a clean freak only when it came to tians blood but it seems like he hate dirt in general^^)and is scared of him at the same time.well it was obvious since the start that mikasa was wearing the pants and eren the dress but this proved it even more^^ i wouldn't be surprised if it was the case cause she is the reason he went down this path.
      they have to improve and mature otherwise their characters will get boring without growth.
      well considering that people die almost each time so i think we can take it as a forshadowing of what may happen
      yeah and it seems like no one tried to question christa despite knowing that she knows the truth well we will just wait for more i hope there will be more revealtions in the next chapter .

      Delete
    7. I think so.. or maybe, some changed like how Ymir was. It wasn't mentioned but i wonder if Connie's mother ended up like that because she is sick or has a frail body? Since it was mentioned that the 'brain connected to the spine' being important..maybe they are different - regular and deviants, because of how intelligent/personality when they were humans? Well, that is possible..probably the deviants that can somehow talk..but there are deviants who have intelligence like climb the trees or runs fast on four limbs or leaves the pack and attack some random village like Sasha's.

      Also, when the regeneration was mentioned, I wondered if someone is tinkering with 'immortality' say a certain king who wants to live a long time..and this ended up like a failed experiment of some sort.

      True..maybe a momentary hesitation..what if they know if they can be reverted back to humans..now, that would be a problem. Kill or be killed? As I've mentioned before, it is kind of like zombies..used to be human..and in titans case, are they like that forever? In Ymir's case, it seems not..but in a way, not fully human either. For Eren, I think he had somewhat overcome that already..when he realized that Annie is the FT. For the time being, it seems that they are still considering it as a theory.

      Also, they still have a lot of explaining to do. Since it is an immediate continuation from FT in the inner city and presumed attack from titans because of a breach on the wall..how would they say now that there is no breach. Where did those titans come from. Aside from people resigning from recon, I think it would be chaotic since everyone would start to become paranoid over anyone could be a titan..just when they thought it is only Eren. Given how easily people succumb when desperate,hungry, etc while in the inner wall, for a week.

      True..it will be shocking if Erwin is evil. I'm also thinking that they are doing that because of that..no interior motives regarding Erwin.

      Is that so..I thought the commander at that time was the guy who apologized to the mother since they can only bring an arm and that their recon is futile. ^^; So when Erwin became the commander, he decided not to say such things and just kept his mouth shut upon returning to the city..and those people are shouting at him.

      Yup ^^

    8. yeah maybe there are some conditions in order for a human to turn totaly into a titan.maybe it has something to do with not only their intelligence but their wills as humans and like you said maybe their health as humans is also an important factor.
      that maybe the answer but it will be crazy if hell was unleashed upon humanity because of a "failed expriment"
      yeah that's why i think this should be kept a secret even from the recon espcially if this idea of reverting back a titan to his human form spread it will be a total mess no one will do their job and they will truly be wiped out
      yes there is yimr's case and that's the whole thing with AOT everytime you think you understand something exceptions happen and you don't know what to think about it....
      i also think eren got over his shock that some of his classmates were titans he didn't hesitate to kill reiner so i think we are done with this whole i can't kill him because he was my friend blah blah blah and that's good.
      yes they need to cover up the whole story otherwise the life in the walls will be over without the titans having to make a move i think this secret should be kept for the greater good cause neither the soldiers nor the citizens can handle such news .yes i remember this scene but if you want to make sure you could re-watch the episode and if that guy was the commander at that time then he must be wearing a necklace or tie don't remember that the head of each military group is wearing pixis has one the police guy has one and erwin also wear one so if he didn't have it since the beginning then you were right.

      Delete
    9. Yup.

      True..it is a good horror story = 'failed experiments' spread out in the world that threatens the existence of humans.

      That's right..and we don't know if it is a special case that it is like that, or it is for all.

      Indeed..especially since Reiner and Bertholdt are directly involved with his mother's death..well, Bertholdt is.

      That's right..and there is still the walls are made of titans. With all that, people would no longer know what to believe and there might be chaos. I guess, it will be a case of 'ignorance is bliss'?

      I've checked..they are wearing their capes so cannot see the necklace. ^^;

      Delete
    10. i forgot about the whole walls made of titans if people knew that i'm sure that chaos would spread in like seconds and they may even start killing themselves i mean if you realize that the place you consider to be sure is full of dangers you live surrounded by monsters what else can you do flee????where???yes in the manga for some people ignorance is truly a bliss
      it isn't that important ^^




      Delete
    11. That's right. So, it might just be like..choose how you want to die.

      True..I'm just curious how long he has been a commander..probably recently since Pixis doesn't seem to quite know him until Eren's trial..and well, curious if he is good in fighting titans or brains only =P

      Delete
    12. and besides avoiding chaos they should keep all what they discovered a secret so as to keep their enemies away.
      now that i think of it there was a discussion between him and pixis where it was hinted that they didn't know each other well so i think that you maybe right
      i think he is mostly brains did you see how easily the titan ate his arm...

      Delete
    13. That's true..in a way, isn't that what whoever their enemies are, is doing. Keeping a secret and those who knew will and would risk being killed just to keep their mouths shut.

      It was before Eren's trial when Pixis claim to be 'jogging/walking' around the walls for exercise. When Irwin mentioned that he has some sort of plan, Pixis look surprised and mentions something that he didn't know that he is.. Of course, one can assume that garrison and recon commanders don't really have chit-chats. Irwin seems to know the police commander well than Pixis..Ah, he's the one who pointed a gun at him during FT attack at the capital. Is he the commander? I assumed he is ^^; Maybe because they are from the same batch?

      Ya, from that, I also assumed he is. Or, he got careless in calling for others to continue on charging that he didn't see that one coming. ^^;;
