Shingeki no Kyojin Episode 2 - Revenge Etched In Eren's Heart

Sup guys! Today I'll be talking about the 2nd episode of the crazy Shingeki no Kyojin with the potential for anime of the season/year.

This episode continues off the first episode with the slaughtering of the villagers and destruction of the town and man was this intense. We get another glimpse of a "super titan" and this one shows intense speed and strength. It's weird for something with this size being able to do what it does. But it does it anyways.

From the picture, you can probably get the feeling of hopelessness. What can stop this? Nothing. Nothing at all. If you know something that can stop this please step forward.

This super titan makes you think "impossible", "indescribable", "unstoppable", and the thought of no hope arises. It rammed through the last gate protecting this portion of the city.
From what we've seen, there seem to be different types of these titans and their abilities probably range from such things like speed and strength to intelligence and such. This one was also able to breathe out fire.

The eyes Eren showed above were eyes that swore the his heart for revenge. No matter what, he was going to kill every single one of them for what they did. We know where his resolve comes from but will he be able to back it up? Does he have the skill? Only time will tell.

Another thing I noticed was when Eren had his dream of his dad injecting some kind of serum into him. What was it? He mentioned "after mom died" to his dad but they haven't reunited yet. So when does this happen? Some kind of future vision? Maybe even another timeline or something. I hope it doesn't have to do with time lol.
There was also Mikasa saying the scene was "familiar". Does this mean she's seen this before too? Or was it another vision? Maybe past experience? Or another timeline thingy? I guess we'll find out later on.

We get a time skip next episode. They've decided to join the army and from the preview, Eren seems to be struggling. He has the mentality but nowhere near the ability needed (in my guess). Oh, and there's this...

She's going to be one of the best MCs this season calling it!!

Really looking forward to the next episode. I have such high expectations as I believe this is a high candidate for anime of the season/year.
