Rumbling, Rumbling, it’s coming  

Rumbling, Rumbling 😝 

Howdy one and all who have clicked on my Attack on Titan the Final Season Part 2 review! 

And since that’s a mouth load to say (let alone type) this will most likely be the last time I use the full title for a while, haha ☺ 

So before I begin our analysis and recap, I just want to get something out of the way – As many returning readers and those who are familiar with my website will know, I read the manga.  

And… I was very angry for a long time over how the series ended.  

After spending over 7 months seething at how Isayama ended the series, I decided it was time to take a step back and really re-organize my feelings.  

I decided to kill my ego and begin re-watching the series from episode one weeks ago, in order to completely throw out everything I once thought I knew. 

I’ve noticed this trend in a lot of us who supported Eren, the Yeagerist, and The (100% full)  Rumbling . Some people in the fandom unfortunately haven’t come around (yet), and I don’t want to be one of those people. 

Was I upset? Yes. Am I still upset? It depends on what day you ask me. 

Either way, whether part 2 ends with chapter 131, and we get the rest in a movie or not – I want to enjoy how things are now. I’ll be going into this with a mindset that the manga and the anime are two separate timelines, and will treat them as such. 

I’m not sure if I will be completely plot-spoiler-free, so this is just a warning to those who are anime-only that may stumble upon this post.

Mikasa the Butterfly Goddess Theory – Lost Girls OVA Review 

Did the 2018 Attack on Titan Lost Girls OVA actually predict and spoil the manga series 2021 ending? This is a review and discussion for the AoT Lost Girls OVA.

Why did Mikasa Ackerman experience headaches all throughout both the Attack on Titan anime and Shingeki no Kyojin manga series? 

Who is the Mirror Man in the Lost Girls OVA? 

Why is Mikasa Ackerman always associated with blue butterflies, and the time loop theory? 

And was the Lost Girls OVA foreshadowing for Shingeki no Kyojin chapter 138 and its ending? 

Let’s try to answer all of the questions above in one post. But in order to do so, we need to go back to Season one, and discuss all of the alternative timelines created since then. 

*Beware spoilers, I guess*
