"#Attack On Titan : Shingeki no Kyojin" officially entered a new saga following the introduction of new characters in chapter 91 of the manga series. Hajime Isayama, the creator of the worldwide post-apocalyptic hit, has been messing up his readers’ brains for the last five to six years, but his latest coup is totally bonkers.
Seriously, who in the world could know that he will introduce a new set of characters after squeezing the life out of Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Artlert? Reiner Braun the 'Armored Titan’ and Zeke Yeager ‘Beast Titan’ tried to be a bad-ass duo as much as they could in the battle of Shiganshina, and then all of a sudden, they become dispensable?.
Ladies and gentlemen, #Shingeki No Kyojin is trekking a whole new territory. This is probably something none of us expected. And you know what? All of the unpredictable elements make the story even more intriguing moving forward. To feed every #SNK’s fan curiosity, let us predict the events that would shape out not only the world of Shingeki no Kyojin but the fate of characters we have invested for over half a decade.
First Stage of Final War: Marley vs. Eldia
After a four-year titime skipthe #Marley and their eldian slaves find themselves in the middle of an all-out battle against the Mid-East allied force. Marley will win this particular war, but an emerging threat from Paradi Island catches all of them by surprise. Commander Hange Zoe now leads a new era of expedition for the people of the wall. This time, the awakened Eldians aim to crush their enemy with a huge armada of fleets and artillery surpassing the firepower of the depleted Marley navy..
Aboard the ship are the heroes of Shiganshina: Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Captain Levi and the original members of the Survey Corps. Eren and Armin begin the first stage of operation, which is to pierce through the Marley’s first line of defense. Armin taps in the power of the Colossal Titan for the first time in battle, while Eren once again becomes the fearsome "Attack on Titan."
After four years of training, Eren has mastered the abilities of his titan form. He can now easily harden his skin and enhance his attack power.
Resistance from warrior cadets
Mikasa, Levi and the others begin their assault on key facilities in Marley territory. They seek to free other Eldians from every ghetto in the country. However, they face some resistance from the warrior cadets. To their surprise, Gabi, Falco, Colt and other cadets are also using the very same 3D maneuver gear to match the Survey Corps’ superiority. The Marley’s 3D maneuver gear apparently has been designed after the gear taken by Zeke ‘Beast Titan’ from Mike Zacharias..
Meanwhile, the Colossal and the Attack titan continue to run havoc across Marley territory until they encounter a couple of familiar face. Zeke and Reiner transform to Beast and Armored titan respectively, setting the stage for their final face-off. These would be the initial salvos of what will turn out to be another brutal and lengthy battle between the two sides. Deaths of major characters will sure take place, and by Isayama’s standard, no one is immune from being killed off.
For now, all we can do is wait for the release of "Attack on Titan" chapter 92 on April 9 (Japanese release) in the May edition of Bessatsu Monthly Shounen.
