I just caught up with the series this week and the fact I did it when it is about to end feels surreal.
The chapter felt really short and didn't have much dialogue in it but the art (esp. the 1st half) more than made up for it.
I liked how Isayama switched ethnicities in this chapter in what was depicted as all blacks living in London and presumably Europeans/whites in a rural setting lol.
No stone was left unturned in illustrating the desperation of the fleeing citizens and their attempts at doing so being futile.
The cliff scene was only second to the Ramzi one that we got a couple of chapters ago, art wise it was one of the best in the series.
The Marleyan soldiers' speech on regretting their actions was powerful but it's baffling to me how that realization would only strike them now. For a threat carrying repercussions of this magnitude one would think of adopting a more diplomatic approach than resort to just hate mongering for centuries.
I really hope we got more from Eren next chapter. While his motives have been made clear to us for his reasoning behind the genocide, I feel like we've only got the part where he's a slave to the fate shown by the future memories of his attack titan.
Sure, he was shown to be sad for doing all of this during his visit to Marley before, but getting a few monologues from him in the next chapter would be great.
The very people Eren wanted to protect are now here and he's seemingly showing no restrain by welcoming them with a flurry of rocks lol.
Not much to say about the anti-rumbling squad except that Reiner's mom watching him transform was cool. I feel they'll be in huge trouble soon and Annie/Falco will swoop them out of there. Next chapter should be crucial because we'll get more into Eren's stance in all of this.
Extremely excited for the next 4-5 chapters! @Kiwipom
Please tag me for the next few chapters too
Edit- An update from Isayama says the story is 1-2% left, so yeah Ch. 138/139 should be the last one definitely
