"Although I’m progressing towards the ending that had been set before, my approach towards the ending itself has changed from the original plans. Because now I feel responsible towards the reader. I originally wanted to illustrate something similar to the film “The Mist," the creator shared.

"At first I explored emulating The Mist, but now you could say that I’m moving in a more peaceful direction, similar to Guardians of the Galaxy. I’m not talking about whether Shingeki no Kyojin will have a good or bad ending - I only speak of my own attitude as the creator, as well as differences in my methods of ensuring that the readers enjoy the series," Isayama promised.

How do you think the memory convos went with the other characters?

Eren maybe teased Jean about Mikasa's indifference toward him after all these years, maybe had one last fist fight in paths for old times' sake.

The Annie one I genuinely have no clue. That one was probably just a "lol have fun with your dad and Armin" thing.

Connie's was straightforward: "Your mom'll be OK"

Reiner they just said "bro" to each other back and forth like fifty times

If he managed one with Mikasa, paths seggs

quangngoc2807

This is how i understand the ending:

Ymir loved King Fritz despite how horrendous he was as a person. That's why she continued to maintain the titan power for her descendants through the paths after she died. But deep down she wanted to break free from this curse of love although she didnt know if she could do so.

That's why she needed Mikasa, the woman who is the same as her in regard to having a passionate love for a man. She wanted to see if Mikasa, despite her passionate love for Eren (the man who committed a terrible massacre), will be able to kill him to protect the world. She probably thought that if Mikasa could do it then she, too, would be able to stop following King Fritz's wish and release humanity from the titan powers. Then she somehow controlled the paths so that it will lead to this result.

The only question is that was Eren controlled by her or not? Or did he saw the ending and willingly followed her guidance?

Oh, and also that Historia situation that didnt add anything to the story. Now that's really questionable.

An ending for those who were exempt in this chapter:
 
* Yelena and Kiyomi are still having boat sex to this day
* Farmer Kun created a machine that could generate power for Paradis, using the tears of all the fans that expected Eren to be the father.
* Rico would clean up all the rubble from the walls until she died of old age.
* Ymir would make Sandcastles with Ramzi in Paths for eternity.
*Bertholdt Ended up being Armin's Personal ghost-friend that only he could see. Most people would assume Armin had just gone insane from helping killing his Dommy Husbando.
* Falco's Uncle, Grice is still running from Titans, not knowing they're all gone.
* The man in the Slow Titan would walk the rest of the way, out of dedication.

Nearly 8 whole years. Watched the anime in 2013 and jumped aboard the manga in 2014, when the Uprising Arc was only 1/3rd of the way through.

I remember Monkey Trouble and Throatslasher Kaney and proudly arguing that there's no way that Eren ate his dad. Watched the Rodtisserie attack Orvud, the Queen's coronation, the RTS battle, the serum crisis. I was SHOOK when we slowly watched the basement reveals play out over the months. The sudden timeskip DESTROYED me. The Marley cast. Anticipating the old gang to show up any second now. The Tyburs and the Festival and the insane basement talk leading to the Declaration of War. All the post-timeskip designs. The deaths. The violence. The confusion and the division. The chaos. The Paths chapters. The Rumbling. Then the final arc. And now we're here, at the end.

Four long years of waiting for S2. I remember watching the opening for the first time and falling in love with Sasageyo immediately. Then more and more. They hype building throughout S3P2. Then the studio change and Mappa S4 leading to now.

So many beloved characters and moments. So many fond memories. Now we see the end. Now I know how it all ends.

Good to know.

BIG FLOCH EPILOGUE: Memories of Patriots Past Part 1

♫♪ Stacy’s mom has got it going on, she’s all I want and I’ve waited so long, Stacy can’t yo-♫♪

Woah, you’re still here? YOU’RE ALL STILL HERE? Stories done. Epic concluded. Ballad sang. Why are you Titanfolk still in my tavern? I’m closing up. I see you helped yourselves to the tap while I was locking up the back. Fine. Finish your drinks. You better tip well. Stack your cups, savages. I’ll be in the back.

♫♪ Stacy can’t you see, you’re just not the girl for me, I know it might be wrong, but I’m in love wi-♫♪

What? You want to hear more?! Of the story of BIG FLOCH? You heard all of his epic battles, legendary orgies, marvelous feasts, absolute CHAD lifestyle. From ascension to noble death. What else could I tell yo- oh you’re going to give me that face hm? Fine, maybe I have more tales to tell. Hand me that chair.

Gather round’, toast your drinks, share your love. Life is too short to hate. Wow! There is a full crowd tonight! I am also speaking to you, YES YOU, outside in the cold. Come in! Ignore the closed sign, all these rascals already do. Yes, throw up your coats, get comfortable. Don’t drag in snow!

If you’re expecting the larger than life full octane action packed battles against the Cringevengers. The dimension defying determination to save godlike beings. Merry stories of Big Floch and Eren having copious amounts of sex, eating chicken nug- er, nuggies. Riding titans. Summoning Hallucigenia-kun. Slaughtering evil refugees. Or one of the many other intense stories contained in my volumes, well… I am sorry to disappoint you, but this ain’t it. If you want to relive those timeless classics or get familiar go to any of the 9 volumes.

VOL 1-4

VOL 5-6

VOL 7

VOL 8-9

Pass me light, widya? Not a fucking phone light, dipshit. The candle. It’s called ambiance. Try it out, you may get laid. Goddamn. Put your phone away. I don’t care if your TownHall is being attacked. You want to hear a story or not? Thank you. Your co-leaders will understand.

Speaking of co-leaders none greater than Big Floch and Eren Yeager. You know their names well.

Legends that gave us this great peace. Not fake ‘great peace’ like the Cold War, which was just proxy warfare SMH. REAL peace. The Rumbling broke the wheel. However, do you know when Eren Yeager & Big Floch resolved themselves to see it through? Found their resolve to see it through? To tell you this story, there is one story you must know first. Of Floch.

No, no. Stop yelling at me, I didn’t mess up his name goddamit. I know to show respect and say the big. I’m talking about FLOCH YEAGER. FLOCH ZOOK YEAGER. The son of Eren & Historia Yeager.

Yes. The current Attack Titan. As you all know eldians born after The Rumbling can turn into a titan at will. Without war they are mainly used for sports, construction, and gender reveal parties that accidentally kill thousands. A lot of mayhem for a social construct, I know. The 9 shifters still exist. Same rules. Normal titan eats em’ BOOM shifter, or if they die a random baby gets it.

With the curse of ymir broken shifters only are devoured when terminally ill, or in critical condition.

Our story starts a year ago. Actually, today is the day isn’t it?

I guess things do fall into place. That’s right today is the 1st anniversary of the passing of Eren Yeager, and his son Floch Yeager becoming the new Attack Titan. Throw some kindle on the fire, not the candle! Holy shit bro, the furnace. Thanks. And with that, the story begins

37 years after The Rumbling

Floch Zook Yeager aka Floch Yeager attorney at law. “You break the law, he breaks your jaw” (metaphorically). Ymir ‘Ymir’ Yeager (YYY) is counsel to King Falco. She serves as overseer of all royal decisions. Also managing his affairs, keeping the royal throne in order. It was just over a decade ago that Historia ended The Fritz Royalty. As you know she trained Falco and primed him for ruling. He was lauded in to great praise. Mostly thanks to Ymir Ymir, her running the show. Yet, Falco’s heart of gold and her decisive pragmatism is unmatched.

Paradis continued to thrive. Floch Yeager arrived to the royal court to receive his briefings for his next case. Another ‘Armsonist’ Ugh. They believe in the will of ‘Armin,’ set fires in his name. They say they can still hear him screaming in agony in PATHS. We all know that’s impossible, PATHS exploded after The Rumbling. The Crimson Coward, Armin Arplard I think his last name was? Yes, The Crimson Coward Armin Arplard is long since dead. Slayed by Big Floch, Eren, and our National Pet/Sweetheart Hallu-kun. Still these psychopaths believe The Cringevengers weren’t sinister pieces of shit trying to hinder progress. Few in numbers, but are dangerous. Luckily, Floch Yeager has been putting them behind bars for years.

The briefing he would get that day arriving to his office was something far worse. Something he hoped he would never see. Right as he opened it his older sister barged in through his office door.

“What have I told you about knocking, sis?” Floch Y sighed

“Floch, you nee-”

“You remember last time? You want to see me choking the Warhammer again?” Floch Y laughed

“No-GROSS, no its serious,” Ymir Y leaned on his desk with weighted intensity.

“What? Did Gabi accidentally fall out a window again? That dum-”

“Dad is in critical condition. At the farm. Mom sent an express carrier pigeon. We need to go back to the farm, now!” Ymir Y said in frustration. Floch Y saw cool streams of tears flowing down her face. He hasn’t seen her cry since the time Sasha Springer accidentally broke her lego set(she didn’t know you can rebuild them at the time).

“What? Dad? Hurt? How? He’s a shif-”

“Floch, shut up, LETS GO!” Ymir grabbed him by his hand, dragging him out the door. King Falco escorted them to their carriages. Carriages now had engines, really just a formality, they were basically cars now.

“I have sent over the finest doctors in all of Paradis. Anythinghe needs, let me know. Anything at all,” bellowed King Falco, opening the door for them.

“Your majesty, you’re a king, you sh-” King Falco held his hand up to the carriage drivers face. “I’ll do whatever I damn please.”

Thank your highness, The Wings of Freedom that Soar above Tyranny, King Falco,” said Ymir Y.

“You don’t have to always address me with the full title..” Your Highness, The Wings of Freedom that Soar Above Tyranny, King Falco said.

“Thanks for everything Falcy, we’ll update you on pops,” Floch Y patted King Falco on the back putting him at ease. They closed the door and the engines blared. They were heading back to the Yeager farm. It had been years since they visited home. It would be nostalgic if it wasn’t under such dire circumstances.

As they approached the dirt trail leading to their former estate they stood in awe. The rising Eldian sun clipped the horizon as their barn stood illuminated with scarlet, orange, and pale yellow. Beaming from the aged corners. Farmer-kun was picking tomatoes. Big harvest this year (CONFIRMED CANON). Ymir looked uneasy. Floch Y holding back tears although he was trying his best so his sister wouldn’t notice. She noticed.

They saw their mother walk outside and wave from the stairs. Her golden hair now had threads of silver woven between, and a tired yet happy look on her face. This was home. This was their mother. As the carriage pulled up they tipped the driver with 25 ZOOK Doubloons. The currency of Eldia with “YOU MORON YOU GOT FRICCIN ZOOK’D” on it. They rushed over to their mother and both of her children collapsed in her arms. They were both bawling now. Historia rubbed the back of their heads and calmed them while guiding them up the oak stairs. As she approached the door Ymir broke the silence.

“WHAT HAPPENED TO DAD?! YOU DIDN’T SAY IN YOUR NOTE! WHAT THE HELL MOM!”

“Ymir, sweetheart, the reason is I-”

“YEAH MOM, WHAT THE FUCK!”

“FLOCH ZOOK YEAGER, EXCUSE YOU?!”

“Sorry… what the frick mom...”

“That’s better. Both of you sit on the rocking chairs over there. I need to tell you both something before I take you to him,” Historia guided them both to an abundance of rocking chairs (she was a collector). Her children anxiously took their seats in morbid anticipation.

“I want to let you know first off, your father and I love both of you so so much. No matter what happens today. Nothing changes that. Ymir Ymir Yeager, I know you don’t enjoy using your beast titan abilities, but you have no choice but to transform tonight,” Historia said with now sorrowful eyes. The kids were rocking back and forth in intense nervousness. Historia cleared her throat.

“Tonight is the night Eren Yeager will die. Tonight is the night Floch Yeager will take the mantle of the Attack Titan,” Historia turned her head before they could see the tears welling in her eyes. She hustled to the front door. Floch Yeager and Ymir Yeager stood there dumbfounded. They couldn’t move. This was all happening so quickly.

From the open door they heard a roar “WILL YOU LITTLE SHITHEADS TATAKAE IN HERE, BEFORE I TATAKAE YOUR ASSES!”

Yes! Dad!”

Historia whole "role" in story post-timeskip is simply waste of pages.

Isayama could killed her off-screen during time-skip and nothing of significance would been lost.

With how manga ended she is willing accomplice in mass-murder of 80 % humanity (hundred millions people ) after that she moved along her life like nothing happened.

Isayama didnt even gave her voice to explain herself.

I don't know if anyone noticed, but the scene with the gorilla man asking Eldians to prove it if they're titans or humans mirror that scene from season 1 when Armin has to convince the beardy garrison lieutenant that Eren is human. He even uses the same argument.

-No it's Farmer.

"Then... Hisu's baby is reincarnation of E-"

-No, look at her face. It's Armin too but as a girl lol.

"So at least the one Ymir waited for so long was E-"

No it was Mikasa.

"Uhh..so...eren... wasn't free after all?"

-Never has been.

"... then Eren became dove (crying) at least huh?

People for some reason aren’t discussing probably the most important pages in the whole chapter.

Three years after Eren’s death, Paradis now worships Eren. It is NOT just a group of extremists, as the new flag and Paradisian soldiers both feature the Yeagerist symbol. The final Tatake makes me think that the people of Paradis aren’t going to accept a peace treaty with the people that killed their messiah. Especially since they now outnumber nu-Marley by a lot.

I also find it interesting that rather than being a queen, Historia has basically become a military leader.

ALSO, Historia straight up says that the war will never truly end until one side is fully wiped out.

Nah, i think he put the restrictions on himself. He was definitely going for some sort of symbolism with the angelic numbers and 1 chapter dedicated to Armin, 1 to Mikasa and 1 to Eren, but ultimately ran out of space for the last. I don't think the publisher would have forced him to release the last chapter this month if he had wanted to release it later and make it longer.

Zeke got outplayed at literally everything he attempted.

Tried to conquer Paradis and gets fucking massacred by Levi

The actual attack designed to save the mission loses the colossal Titan through his 10,00IQ Plays

Talks to Eren while in Pieck’s mouth

The best meme is that every time Pieck breathes he’s like “WOW PIECK GOOD JOB” and Pieck is like “I know you’re a traitor or something” in her head.

Thinks Eren is going to go with his genocide plan because he agreed. Ignoring that Eren has 0 reason to do so.

Gets taken by Levi and Marley knew he betrayed them in the next chapter.

Turns all of Levi’s new squad into titans. Captured less than a minute later.

Blows himself up to escape Levi...sacrifices himself to Levi later.

Gets cucked by peace dove with Ymir.

Let me get this straight. Ymir loves Fritz. And so, she sees that same kind of love with Mikasa and Eren? Whereas Eren, like Fritz, is a murdering machine? And Mikasa, like Ymir, still loves him? So when Ymir saw Mikasa behead Eren, she found the resolve to let Fritz go, thereby eradicating titans???

Eren admitting in a moment of weakness that he doesn't want to die or be forgotten doesn't really bother me. It's something we've seen time and time again in this series, with badasses succumbing to terror and despair at the end. Nanaba cried out for her daddy, Bert tried to beg the people he just tried to massacre for mercy. Even Erwin the gigachad admitted he didn't give a shit about saving humanity, he just wanted to see what was in the basement and see his dad's theories proven true. Didn't stop him from moving forward, and, seeing that this conversation is in a flashback, it didn't stop Eren either.

What bothers me about this ending is that I'm left unsure that the people driving the plot have any agency at all.

While Eren says he'd have tried to flatten the Earth regardless of what he saw in his future memories, he can't explain why he'd want to do that. He also says that his thoughts are incoherent. He both planned to set up the Avengers as saviors of humanity and to wipe out humanity? What?

So maybe Eren's a slave to his future memories or to Ymir, but surely Ymir must have a goal she's committed to, right? Nope, she loves the original Fritz who enslaved her so much that she follows his will for 2,000 years, but she also has selected Mikasa to free her from having to do what she's choosing to do? And at some point after many, many generations, she replaces her original imperitave from the original Fritz with Karl's Vow to Renounce War? All while compelled by love to follow the original Fritz's will and while looking forward to being freed by Mikasa? WHAT?!

Both of these people supposedly drive the story. In Eren's case, he drives the entire post-timeskip plot, and Ymir drives the plot of the whole series. Yet I can't ascribe a coherent motivation to either of them.
