EREN AND ZEKE LOSE? THE RUMBLING FAILS – Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 2

Published

on

Hello and Welcome, We are going to talk about Attack on Titan season 4 part 2 episode 2 because this episode finally marks the conclusion of the trio of episodes that ‘MAPPA Studio’ weirdly enough adapted from the finale of season four part one.

AVvXsEhmnso3tGnbOzB1dT2jM74rqSMZUD1J r1Yf7VJRZP429Sbwasx1nBLlanRIHgjZm9DanNzc buixOcgoM5ZrEx9lYIkOyDKm7tjbO pc25tIADrGm grLiomdJd 3EY6GhRBP0a4BbEBZJ1lF4IzhimBETKpfDyyLhSZn573uX G3QhzI4d6dv87wU=w640 h90
Because these last three episodes namely episode 16 17 and 18 complements the four chapters of the manga namely chapter 115 116 117 and 118. and this marks the conclusion of chapter 118 and ‘MAPPA’  weirdly enough jumbled all these four chapters.

This episode begins with the prisoners getting released the prisoners obviously being Armin and the gang, now Armin’s initial confrontation and how he blindly believes Eren is up for display for everyone to actually witness and the moment when Mikasa sees the truth about everything which basically happened between her and Eren in that particular table room everyone sort of thinks that okay armin maybe you are taking things a little bit too far Eren might not be the goodie two shoes that you are thinking him to be because in fact Armin even asks if they should you know showcase the true power of the rumbling so that badass is left alone for maybe the next 50 years or so he in fact supports some of the plans made by Ere here in the beginning but later on he soon realizes that maybe he is making a little bit of mistake and here finally we get a first bit of flashback because in the last episode we didn’t actually get to see any flashbacks whatsoever and this one is one of my absolute favorite ones which involves Eren looking towards the sea which is the ending of season three part two i really love that moment it’s probably one of my favorite moments from AOT period because it just showcases a stark contrast a change in the world of attack on titan and to see that moment once again it was incredible it was legit incredible but moving forward the fight continues between Eren and Reiner of course the george stanton pogo is also there but here we continue from where we left last week that is Eren has been almost pinned down by the armored titan but here things take a stark turn because once again Eren utilizes the powers of the Warhammer and just absolutely berates the armored titan this was beautiful to watch but more than that it’s not just about the visuals but rather the visual flair and the overall voice acting the voice acting literally popped off this episode it was incredible Eren’s demonic scream it was probably my highlight for this entire episode it was just a chef’s kiss so glad to see the return of these kind of voice acting’s i was kind of missing them in the early parts of season four and in fact this episode also brought back some of the classic soundtracks as well in fact towards the end of this episode we got the thriller music from attack on that in season 4.

Pixis takes over the charge and he commands everyone specifically those who had taken the vine do not use the ODM gear and only the people who are fit for them should use the maneuvering kits because these are actually scarce right now so the forces of paradise are once again taking charge although they are aware that this is up to no avail because this is going to be a death trap for all of them but still pixis knows the risk and they are all ready for all of these things furthermore Mikasa and the others are also seen getting ready with their maneuvering gears but here we saw the return of one character whom i had honestly forgotten i legit forgot about her existence and she is Luis one of those characters who swim from the casa and who joined the Igor’s faction later on but i kind of forget her existence but she’s just there to be a part of Mikasa’s scarf plot line because Mikasa finally leaves her scarf which Eren had given to her for the very first time here Mikasa  is sort of getting over her errand face.

While all of these things are happening tangentially there’s another plot point which is brewing here which involves the character of Falco, now Falco is being used here very nicely i have my gripes over how he’s handled later on in the final arc of the series but here him and gabby are actually improving as characters and through gabby and Falco we legit get to see the character development from how they initially thought that the people of this island were nothing more than devils to now them realizing their mistake that it was only propaganda and brainwashing which was forced upon them to showcase that okay these people are the devil you need to destroy them and specifically this coming from the mouths of gabby it’s legit good i know that we all hate gabby for what she did to Sasha but at the same time they are legit kids they have been brainwashed their entire lives and to see her finally understanding the pain of Reiner it was actually a legit good moment for me but before all of this actually happens we got a very good interaction between Falco and Nile.

AVvXsEiP2GAFhL64PLSDP VbqQXFltZiVsK2CPVIdZJlpMFY4HDDrChi C6MH6piZVIYj6AiJdOYkK2dbuHZyGSBENx8VXaKka86y2FfViRqbUG7PLabV2pfw1 zt1SSMF6UCyALRfjLGwV4SN5HBVnaoCZVdQMcP1jr5zsV x2wzqhmVGByZBwNxL000Fhl=w640 h288

Now Nile used to be a really good character back in the day once again i had almost forgotten about him but then i remembered that he was a friend of none other than Eran so to see him also at the death bed and to see him having a good conversation with Falco this was legit good he made Falco realize the mistake which they were being taught upon which they were brainwashed with and he’s the person who actually returns Falco to Colt, Gabby and the juxtaposition of this scene along with the family of Sasha was a brilliant touch in my opinion and how the two thought processes were actually being utilized here but before all of this actually happens during the fight with Reiner and Eren, Zeke finally arrives into the scene and he just decimates everyone he destroys the marlin carriers and he just blows away a bunch of the enemy but at the same time through some very clever tricks by peak and commander or other general maggots they are able to almost take down Zeke by the usage of the anti-titan cannon because this was done beautifully or rather this was executed beautifully and that is basically the ending of this episode with Zeke falling down from the walls and Eren who is at a very crippled state right now just crawling forward towards his brother because i still chuckle at this Zeke arrives to the scene by saying that your Brother is here you don’t have to worry anymore.

AVvXsEi4 sTA6qPhRDtVYBjN5MTQCIWB6fVM4GFy46 7EaugzYwv4MVk vmPvvZYnUZljRqWn9WIKVU141SYBYO5KmCt KhidiDcU414cJ E377QkhP 8Ke5EPn3fyHYDZJQlwmqEDB6aVYPmyfbY4lgQYfvSj3 1z0R 0k3v nmYIW7VLLzJlZ3ULk2Yod0=w640 h280

Eren just Zeke saying Brother it just makes me giggle uh i don’t know this is just a really funny scene and that’s basically attack on that in season four part two episode number two there’s some other stuff happening as well with Armin and gang finally reaching the rooftop and them trying to help Eren when they realize that Zeke is also here and their overall shock when they realize that since Zeke is here Levi is probably defeated or even dead this realization daunts upon them and they are feeling absolutely helpless here at this moment.

In this episode which adapts chapter 118 there’s a panel which i was eagerly waiting for which is Yelena being delighted at the destruction of Marley unfortunately for me the anime did not do much justice to the sea i thought that this should have been accompanied with some stellar music and some stellar soundtrack but unfortunately that didn’t happen but that is definitely made up with this meme worthy moment of Yelena’s face and how she immediately turns into a goody two-shoe and says that please help see Eren this was legit fantastic props to ‘MAPPA’ for adapting this spot on so that’s episode two of what i got in season four part two so what do you guys think about all of these things please do let me know your thoughts in the comment section below so that’s it for today guys see you all on the next one.

Why Does Luffy Eat So Much?

Why Does Luffy Eat So Much?

Monkey D. Luffy, the beloved protagonist of the manga and anime series “One Piece,” is famously known for his insatiable appetite. This character trait is not just a humorous quirk but is deeply tied to the narrative and world-building of the series. In this article, we will explore the reasons behind Luffy’s enormous appetite, delving into the lore of “One Piece,” the biological and narrative explanations provided by the series, and the symbolic significance of his eating habits.

The World of One Piece and Luffy’s Role

One Piece, created by Eiichiro Oda, is a sprawling epic that follows the adventures of Luffy and his pirate crew as they search for the ultimate treasure, the “One Piece.” Luffy’s dream is to become the Pirate King, a goal that requires immense strength, resilience, and determination. One of the ways his extraordinary abilities are highlighted is through his eating habits.

The Power of the Devil Fruit

Central to understanding Luffy’s eating habits is the Devil Fruit he consumed. In the world of One Piece, Devil Fruits grant their eaters supernatural powers at the cost of their ability to swim. Luffy ate the Gomu Gomu no Mi, which turned his body into rubber. This transformation gives him incredible strength, agility, and resilience.

Increased Metabolism

One of the plausible explanations for Luffy’s voracious appetite is the heightened metabolism caused by his rubber body. The energy required to stretch, expand, and endure the impacts his body sustains during battles is immense. Thus, Luffy needs to consume large quantities of food to replenish his energy stores.

The Biological Perspective

From a biological standpoint, Luffy’s rubber physiology could necessitate a higher caloric intake. His body undergoes constant strain and recovery due to the intense physical activities he engages in. This might lead to a significantly faster metabolism, requiring him to consume more food to maintain his energy levels.

Energy for Healing

Luffy often sustains severe injuries in battles, yet he recovers remarkably quickly. This rapid healing could be another reason why he eats so much. His body might require vast amounts of nutrients and calories to repair itself efficiently, leading to his continuous hunger.

Narrative and Symbolic Significance

Luffy

Luffy’s eating habits also serve a narrative purpose. They emphasize his boundless energy and zest for life. His constant hunger is a metaphor for his insatiable drive and ambition. Just as he is never satisfied with the status quo and is always pushing forward, his appetite reflects his relentless pursuit of his goals.

A Symbol of Strength and Resilience

In many cultures, food is a symbol of life and vitality. Luffy’s immense appetite signifies his life force and indomitable spirit. It sets him apart from other characters and highlights his unique traits as a leader and a fighter.

Luffy’s Bond with His Crew

Another aspect to consider is how Luffy’s eating habits strengthen his bond with his crew. Shared meals are a recurring theme in One Piece, symbolizing camaraderie and unity. Luffy’s love for food often brings his crew together, fostering a sense of family among them.

Communal Eating as a Bonding Activity

The Straw Hat Pirates frequently share large feasts, especially after battles or significant events. These communal meals reinforce their relationships and provide moments of respite and joy amidst their adventures. Luffy, with his bottomless stomach, is usually at the center of these gatherings, embodying the spirit of the crew.

Comparisons with Other Characters

Luffy’s eating habits are also contrasted with other characters in the series, such as Roronoa Zoro and Sanji, who also have substantial appetites but for different reasons. Zoro’s need for food is tied to his rigorous training and strength, while Sanji, the crew’s cook, has a refined palate and a deep appreciation for culinary arts.

Food as a Source of Power

In the One Piece universe, food often plays a critical role in characters’ power-ups. For instance, Luffy’s Gear Fourth transformation requires him to eat massive amounts to maintain the form. This connection between food and power further emphasizes the importance of Luffy’s eating habits.

Conclusion: Luffy’s Insatiable Hunger

In conclusion, Luffy’s insatiable hunger is a multifaceted trait that serves to highlight his superhuman abilities, resilience, and boundless energy. It is deeply rooted in the lore of One Piece, with biological, narrative, and symbolic explanations intertwining to create a character that is both extraordinary and relatable. Luffy’s love for food is not just a humorous quirk but a vital aspect of his character that enhances his role as the indomitable captain of the Straw Hat Pirates.

By understanding the reasons behind Luffy’s enormous appetite, fans can gain deeper insight into his character and the world of One Piece. Luffy’s eating habits are a testament to his strength, resilience, and unyielding spirit, making him one of the most beloved characters in anime and manga.

Was Shanks an Emperor When He Met Luffy?

Was Shanks an Emperor When He Met Luffy?

The world of One Piece is filled with compelling characters and intricate storylines, one of the most fascinating being the relationship between Monkey D. Luffy and “Red-Haired” Shanks. A pivotal question for many fans is whether Shanks was already one of the Four Emperors (Yonko) when he first met Luffy. This article delves into Shanks’ status during his initial encounter with Luffy, exploring his journey, his rise to power, and his eventual position as one of the most formidable pirates in the One Piece universe.

Shanks’ Early Days and Rise to Power

Shanks, also known as “Red-Haired” Shanks, is one of the most enigmatic and influential characters in One Piece. Before discussing his status as an Emperor, it’s essential to understand his background. Shanks started as an apprentice on the ship of the legendary pirate Gol D. Roger, the Pirate King. Serving alongside Buggy the Clown, Shanks learned the ropes of piracy and honed his skills under Roger’s tutelage.

After Roger’s execution, Shanks formed his own crew, the Red-Haired Pirates. Through countless battles and strategic alliances, Shanks gradually built his reputation. His charisma, strength, and leadership qualities quickly set him apart in the pirate world.

Shanks’ Encounter with Luffy

The iconic meeting between Shanks and Luffy took place in Luffy’s hometown, Foosha Village. At this time, Luffy was a young boy with dreams of becoming the Pirate King. Shanks and his crew had docked at the village, spending some time there. It was during this period that Shanks and Luffy formed a bond that would shape Luffy’s destiny.

When Luffy first met Shanks, the red-haired pirate was not yet an Emperor. This is evidenced by several key points in the storyline. Firstly, the concept of the Yonko, or Four Emperors, had not been fully established at that time in the series. Secondly, Shanks’ actions and influence, while significant, did not yet reflect the level of control and power associated with an Emperor.

The Symbolic Exchange

One of the most significant moments in One Piece is the symbolic exchange between Shanks and Luffy. When Luffy declared his intention to become a great pirate, Shanks recognized the boy’s potential and spirit. In a defining moment, Shanks entrusted Luffy with his treasured straw hat, a gesture symbolizing the passing of the torch to the next generation. Shanks’ words, “Bring it back to me someday when you’ve become a great pirate,” became Luffy’s driving motivation.

Shanks’ Ascension to Yonko Status

The journey from a reputable pirate to one of the Four Emperors was gradual for Shanks. Over the years, he amassed power, influence, and a loyal crew. His encounter with Whitebeard, another Yonko, and his intervention in the Paramount War at Marineford showcased his strength and strategic acumen.

Shanks’ official recognition as one of the Four Emperors occurred after his meeting with Luffy. The timeline of One Piece indicates that Shanks’ rise to Yonko status took place during the period between Luffy’s childhood and the current events of the series. By the time Luffy set sail and began his own journey, Shanks had already cemented his position as an Emperor.

The Significance of Shanks’ Emperor Status

Understanding whether Shanks was an Emperor when he met Luffy is crucial for several reasons. It highlights the growth and development of both characters and their impact on the One Piece world. Shanks’ journey to becoming a Yonko underscores his resilience, leadership, and the respect he commands among pirates and the World Government alike.

For Luffy, Shanks represents a benchmark and a source of inspiration. The promise to return the straw hat has driven Luffy to overcome numerous challenges and grow stronger. Shanks’ influence is a constant reminder of the heights Luffy aspires to reach.

No, Shanks was not an Emperor when he met Luffy.

There was an inconsistency in the One Piece storyline regarding this detail. Originally, it was stated that Shanks became a Yonko (Emperor) before meeting Luffy. However, this was later corrected.

According to current information, Shanks achieved Yonko status after meeting Luffy, roughly six years before the present time in the story.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Shanks was not an Emperor when he first met Luffy. Their initial encounter occurred during a time when Shanks was a formidable pirate but had not yet achieved the status of a Yonko. However, this meeting set the stage for both characters’ future endeavors. Shanks’ journey to becoming one of the Four Emperors was marked by strategic battles, alliances, and an unwavering resolve. His relationship with Luffy remains one of the most pivotal elements in One Piece, driving the narrative and inspiring Luffy’s quest to become the Pirate King.
