Random Impressions Summer 2018 (Week 11): Shingeki no Kyojin S3

This season's still been going pretty strong even with much fewer Titans. Eren seemed to have a nice moment of self-reflection in this episode, and the resolution of Rod Reiss went in a way I liked. Historia's also doing a solid job of proving herself now that she's tossed aside her helpless side. But seriously, the CG version of Rod Reiss's Titan is the stuff of nightmares.

I get that people are jerks, but I find it a little bit hard to believe that the people of this world can't take a break for just one day. At worst, it seems like a minor inconvenience, so I don't see it as a reason to denounce the new queen. I understand that the series needs a reason to stir up some drama around Historia, but I found this reason a little harder to believe.

Additionally, Historia states herself that people won't be so easily accepting of a new ruler. Does the unrest even need to happen? In my mind, this line is enough, but I guess the idea is to make Historia look even more woefully unqualified.

I'm cool with this introspection from Eren. It's about time he realized that everyone is killing themselves for him. He could easily turn towards a self-destructive path from here, but it seems like he's found resolve from it (which is nice).

It's a cool plan, but how exactly does Eren survive the blast? Gunpowder doesn't explode in one direction, after all. I'd understand if Eren could clamp the mouth shut, but that doesn't happen.

I like the idea of having Historia cut down her father, both for the emphasis on family and for giving the people a reason to accept her as queen.
