Well I was just so pleased with myself today, realizing that the actor behind Levi, Hiroshi Kamiya, is also voicing Trafalgar Law. (There’s no added significance to that, of course).

As I mentioned on the Vice Pit yesterday, this is my favorite episode out of the latest batch. In contrast to, say, the neurosis of the gal in DOG & SCISSORS, Miss Hange has a much more convincing kind of creepy eccentricity that really appeals to me. Watching her more-or-less just play around with ‘Sawney’ and ‘Bean’ during her ‘experiments,' she had exactly the sort of morbid giddiness you’d see in some girl who keeps a live bug collection under her dresser. The scene where Levi and the Spec Ops just quietly leave while she gets riled up about her discoveries was just perfect. Office politics, even among Titan fighters!

Regarding what she learns, though? Well, if the Titans are made of some unnaturally light material, and if they subsist on photosynthesis (right?), then those do seem to be clues pointing to them being homunculi of some kind. Nobody should be expecting a FMA crossover here that puts Father behind all of this misery, so we’re instead left with the question of who could be creating these monstrosities.

Thinking about it, I might take Sam’s theory a little further. I'll posit that the upper echelons of this kingdom might actually be creating the Titans to maintain a power hierarchy with those reliable lubes of fear and dependency. At this point, seeing as how layers of deception have already been unveiled to us, and seeing as how we’ve already seen some very contentious factions clashing in this kingdom, such a surprise wouldn’t be really be that shocking, would it?

Watch this episode, "Special Ops Squad - Night Before the Counteroffensive" here and decide for yourself, then read my write-up on the previous episode here.

Never thought about humans creating Titans to instill fear in society. It's a bit counterproductive when there is not enough food and land for the people.
