Use this thread to chew the fat about everything Shingeki no Kyojin. No spoiler tags needed, just throw everything out there and let it all hang out.

Some important MASSIVE SPOILERS worth discussing:

-We found out about everything hidden in the basement, and somehow none of it was porn.
-Isayama still can't draw faces.
-We finally discovered Christa's secret (she's bi)
-Berthold will live on inside of all of us. But especially inside of Armin.
-Potato Girl is still best girl.

It felt less of a reveal after the meeting with his grandfather and the warnings from the doctor and yet was still a cool moment.

Eren could have some child back home. Realised he only had so long to live and asked mikasa to recommend him the best woman to start a relationship with.
Eren does have a child back home.

His name is Zeke Yeager :D

Grisha and his memories have now activated in Erens conscious ever since he went into the basement.

To Eren, speaking to his deranged grandfather probably feels like he was taking to an actual father.

And Zeke probably feels like a son as well as a brother.

Imagine you had a brother, but your memories of him are of you raising him and loving him as a son.

That's probably what Eren feels like.

And with Eren now in Marley, all current generations of Yeager family are together in one place.

Grishas senile father in the hospital.
Grisha in Erens memories.
Eren
Zeke

Add to that both Grishas and The Owls memories of "the resistance" movements to overthrow Marley also now in Erens head, as well as all the dramatic suffering their family has endured all be sure of Marley.......

Its easy to see why Eren is now there tbh.

Well shit is about to go down in the 100th chapter.
Yuppp. Everything is falling into place. Can't wait for next month.

Someone on reddit theorized it's possible the girl with the cart Titan realized something weird was going on and informed that fat kid, which could explain why he seemed so shook :thinking:

Well he's obviously not the next in line for the cart titan- we've seen lots of titan candidates now, and they're all young athletic people. The somewhat overweight middle aged guy (middle age by anime standards anyway) would look very out of place

Discussion time, I guess.

  • Have any Eldians aside from Eren infiltrated the play? If so, which Eldian(s) in which capacity(ies)?
  • What is Willy's plan?
  • What is Eren's plan?
  • Is Zeke working with Eren?
  • What was Pieck's intent in hugging the chubby mook?
  • Does the appearance of Annie's father - and mention of Bertolt's - hold any significance?
  • Will Reiner defect to the Eldians? Will Falco?
  • Is Magath fully aware of Willy's plans? Will Magath be of any importance in the upcoming events?

Curious to hear some thoughts; there was a fair amount to digest this chapter, especially for a set-up.

1. Jean I think
2. Dunno
3. Getting the other shifters on his side
4. I hope so, Zeke knows he will die soon
5. Telling him to get away from here or else he will get hurt
6. Yeah I think they foreshadow that Annie will be back in 100 :)
7. Yes Reiner will realize that he was on the wrong side all along and everyone was played like a fiddle
8. Dunno

I loved this chapters reactions. Reiner often looked like he just starred into himself lol

Eren knew what Willy was going to say during the play, which means that they might be working together. Other characters have a suspicious attitude: Zeke, Magath and Miss Azumabito. Who is working with who?

Something really big is going to happen in chapter 100.

Also RIP Miss Hoover. We hardly knew you.

Omg. Please let things explode in issue 100. The buildup to this has been masterful.

HOW IS THIS MANGA SO CONSTANTLY GOOD

Fuck man, every chapter gets me more and more immersed in their world. That speech + that final shot of Eren were great. It really feels like Eren is a brand new character, completely changed since we last saw him.

He has no armband, so that's not even an option in the first place.

While I loved the information that we got in this chapter, I hope the next one is nothing but Eren. I need to know more about how he got there and who else is with him, especially what's going on with Zeke. Also, who do you guys think was that hooded guy that trapped the other Titans? Jean?

My vote is for Connie.

I kinda hope Eren wasn't bluffing when he said he would turn into a Titan and murder everyone if Reiner didn't sit down. It would be interesting if Eren broke bad in the years we hadn't seen him.

My God! The tension in this chapter was just amazing, everything hanging on a razor's edge with Eren being made the scapegoat by Marleyans. Now to see if they will really start murdering all the ghetto Eldians like many have theorized.

Eren being comprehensive of Rein situation while simultaneously threatening him was quite chilling.

Zeke is clearly aware of whatever plan the "Marley soldier" has, which is consistent with his attitude post-time skip.

I do wonder what the end goal is here, is it to take over Marley? Set an example for the rest of the world?
Are other countries aware of what's going to happen? At least one of the diplomats seems to know more than what she was letting on.

Almost forgot about the update due to the upheaval of the last month disrupting one of my main ways of knowing that there's been an update (seeing this topic bumped.) Fortunately my other method of "oh, first full week of the month, better check the Crunchyroll manga app" held true!

And yes, this is getting VERY interesting.

Notifications will help keeping track of this thread, though I usually remember to check around the 7th of every month.

Watched the anime for the first just a month ago. Wow was it better than I ever imagined. Just thought people were over hyping it. Like people tend to do sometimes.
But man, what a ride. Had to get more ASAP so started reading the Manga directly after.
And it's just as great, even though the art can be somewhat lacking sometimes.
But all these newly introduced characters and the different kingdoms confuse me somewhat. Are Marley the kingdom, and eldians the race(?) that are capable of transforming? I think I've must have missed a chapter or something

Welcome.
That was my experience with the series as well (way back before we had a Season 2).

I felt most people hyped it for the over the top action but it was the other elements of the series that kept me engaged.

That's correct, Marley is a kingdom and Eldians live within ghettos in Marley.
As far as we're aware, no other country besides Paradis Island has an Eldian population.

I say it again: the way this manga came back from the (imo terrible) Historia arc is fucking incredible. Ch.99 is another winner.

Any theories on who the soldier was who cut the rope?

And I also agree with the observation that Zeke is somehow involved in all of this

That was tense, freakin marvelous chapter. Have high hopes for 100, seems like everything is coming to a head, Eren surely got his head cool and I'm loving every second of it. Also, there are theories of the rope soldier being
Connie
and some speculation about
Jean being on stage posing as Heros
.

Come on guys, we don't need to be spoilering speculation.
