MangaPanda released Shingeki no Kyojin #75, “Two War Forces,” go read it.
The Titans have our heroes surrounded. The Ape Titan is able to command his army of Titans/shifters by banging his fist on the ground. One presumes this means they’ve had this all figured out from the start.
Erwin watches this and considers. …And considers. He considers the weird pack-animal like Titan and decides (for some reason known only to the eyebrows) that it is intelligent. He considers not fighting and whether or not they’d be starved out. He considers… the horses. He considers the horses a lot, and for several long panels.
In fact, Erwin spends so much time trying to figure out what he should do that Levi jokes that he should have made breakfast in the meantime.
Eventually, a plan is hatched and you have no idea how grateful I am that it involves this:
Personally, this all I need from a shounen manga: Eren!Titan v. Armored Titan.
Pow! Crash! Bang!
There is a lot of punching and steaming wounds and promises to avenge Maria. And, guess what? I think that’s perfect. It makes me miss what I loved about watching the anime. Plus, despite the fact that it still bothers me that no one is really addressing the fact that these people are our friends (except a little bit in a flashback where Eren wonders if Reiner is smart enough to figure out their plan), I love the tragedy of this moment.
I still wish I knew what the shifters wanted (besides to capture Eren), but, you know, this is closer to what I enjoyed the most about Shingeki no Kyojin way back when this was THE thing to be watching/reading.
