Attack on Titan #9: A Hunter of its Own Kind

If the largest possible Titan is 10 meters taller, why didn't the humans just make their wall like 100 meters tall? They really didn't think this through, did they?

Hoorah, I’m behind. That’s no good. I’m gonna jump ahead to Episode 9 and do a brief recap of the previous two episodes: So The 104th Trainee Squad found themselves in deep shit. Their gas supply for their Maneuver Gears were running short, and some of their members were killed, either slaughtered by Titans or probably killed themselves. Just when things look extremely bleak (and I mean bleak!), there’s an Abnormal Titan fighting other Titans. Armin and the others develop a plan that involves using the Abnormal to fight off the Titans so they can retreat. After it’s knocked out after fighting too much, it’s revealed that the Abnormal was actually Eren, with his missing limbs back.

Alright, moving on…

So part of the reason why they were so screwed is because the elite Survey Corps were off on a recon mission. One of them consists of Captain Levi.

Plus, he also think the Titans’ faces look stupid I kinda wish he was the main character instead of Eren, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Meanwhile, back to our not-so interesting main character: He’s having a dream about himself being eaten alive, probably waiting to be digested. And then next thing you know, he bursts out, becoming a Titan.

Too bad he said that while he, Mikasa, and Armin are surrounded by hundreds of Survey Corps members, each one pointing a blade in their direction, demanding an explanation about Eren’s transformation. Eren seems to not have any recollection of any of the events and tries to convince them that he’s not a Titan. However, they’re not listening as they lock cannons on them.

As they escape, Eren sees a key that he had across his neck. This key he received from his father opens a basement, where Eren will hopefully learn the truth. Also, he had given him an injection. What is yet to be revealed. My guess is that it has something to do with his transformation.

In fact, it’s novelty is starting to wear off now. I guess you can say it’s part of my refusal to fall into the hype. That doesn’t mean that I’ve deemed this as “The Third Coming of Guilty Crown” yet, but this show had better start explaining itself, or else it’s gonna have a hard time convincing me.
