This is a review of episode two of Attack on Titan Season 4, the Final Season. Titled “Midnight Train”.
Check out last week’s episode review here.
So after watching the season premiere, I went on YouTube and watched some reviewers’ reactions.
Most of them were anime-only.
Which is fine, I loved seeing the raw emotion on their faces. It was even better when a stoic manga reader was seated on either side, a thin-lipped grimace on their face. I’d imagine I had the same look while watching.
The general consensus of those individuals’ videos, along with their comment section seemed to chime one thing:
Then there were a few manga readers who came through and calmly told them – “you are not ready for Eren”.
Why? Because you are not ready for Eren.
Eren started this story.
Yes, Isayama-sensei wrote it. Yes, Mappa is producing it this season. But, only Eren knows how it ends.
And Eren Yeager does not come when called. Eren Yeager only shows up when he deems his presence necessary. Otherwise, he is not around.
Some of you might think I’m being funny, but I am being completely serious.
Eren controls this. Not Isayama, not Mappa, not the publishers, fans, etc.
This is his story, and we are only watching it.
(Although…Eren did appear in this episode. Twice, even.)
And with that out of the way, let’s dive into episode two! ☺
