Shingeki no Kyojin Episode 18 - Capture the Female Titan?!

Hey guys! Tadashi here and today I'll be talking about the 18th episode of Shingeki no Kyojin.

The episode starts off with Armin, Jean and Reiner stranded. They have one horse and three people so that obviously isn't going to work out. They were almost at the point where they had to leave one man behind but some beautiful girl named CHRISTA<3 appeared with another horse which actually belonged to Jean.

The way she showed up just in time looking like some higher being captivated the three men's hearts.

Next we have another scene of people trying to take down this female titan. They tried a different approach where they have 3 people attack simultaneously thinking that the titan wouldn't be able to avoid it even if she is more intelligent than the average titan but to their surprise, she does something no other titan has done - she jumps.

I can jump bitches !

This shocks the soldiers and by the time they realized what had happened, they were dead. Unlike the previous episode where she hesitated, she showed no hesitation here and brutally killed soldiers. She even threw in a football kick to the soldier on the horse where he was sent flying high enough for others to see.

Hi Sasha<3
Hi Mikasa<3
Hi Mikasa again<3

All of sudden, the tides of the operation changed. Everyone had begun to head into The Forest of Giant Trees where they want to lure the female titan into. Everyone else was ordered to stand by and prevent any other titans from entering the forest. It's an insane order, but they have to do what they are told.

Rawr I'm actually so short rawr!

Even if this situation is absurd, they have the advantage since they are literally on giant trees. The regular titans can't reach them, but they are easily distracted by the presence of them. Basically, all the soldiers have to do is stand atop the branches.

As for the team inside the forest, it consists of Eren, Levi, and his elite squad. Levi seems composed, and maybe he was but to Eren, he looked unsure.

Eren thinks that he doesn't understand the situation because he is a newbie and is given the task to figure out the plan by himself in order for him to learn. He believes that everyone else in the elite squad knows what's going on but once he takes a look around, he sees everyone else's faces and they clearly show that they have no clue what's going on. That's when Eren begins to freak out. It doesn't help that the female titan makes her appearance. That's when things started getting super serious.

The entire squad was waiting for Levi to give out orders to attack as the titan was closing in but he gave no such orders. Everyone was panicking and they were even about to take action on their own. That's when Levi told everyone to cover their ears and he raised his gun and shot out a - END EPISODE omg what a fucking cliffhanger LOL.

It seems like Levi had brought them to a certain part of the forest and is about to signal an ambush on the titan. Like Armin said, Commander Erwin may be trying to capture this titan since it is very special. The question is, can they really do it? They've suffered enough losses already just trying to run away. Trying to capture it is a lot harder.

According to the preview, Eren has to make a decision whether to transform or not. I'd definitely like to see a titan fight!

Shingeki no Kyojin continues to be great! See you guys next episode!
