Video Info:
This video will explain everything from episode 5 of Attack on titan the final season. Not S4 episode 5 was called declaration of war, and it begins with a brief flashback to Paradis island, during the time in which Reiner, Annie and Bertholt were infiltrating the walls.
After the opening we see Willy Tybur preparing for his stage production, where he will be declaring war on Paradis island infront of journalists and diplomats from around the world. Unlike his usual confident self, Willy is visibly shaken in this moment. In episode 4 of the final season, commander Magath informed Willy that there was an infestation of rats in Marley, by which he meant that there are spies from Paradis island currently in the country. Moving on, Reiner comes face to face with Eren in this dimly lit cellar, and he can barely believe what he’s seeing. Eren orders Reiner to sit down and you can see that Falco is confused by their reactions. As I explained in my last review, Falco believes the two men are old friends, so Reiner’s blank expression is not exactly what he was expecting. Eren explains that the cellar they’re in is underneath a regular apartment building behind the stage. Obviously Reiner is aware of the threat, so he complies with Eren’s request to sit down, followed by an awkward silence in which Falco offers to leave. We then go back to Eren, Falco and Reiner, as the warrior finally musters up the courage, to ask Eren what he came here to do. Eren replies in epic fashion by telling Reiner he came to do the same thing that Reiner did himself, which is referring back to the attack on the walls all those years ago. Meanwhile the performance of Willy Tybur begins and along with the help of his cast and crew, he tells the story of how the eldian empire took over the world with the titans, after their ancestor Ymir gained the power all those years ago.
While the performance continues, the soldier who approached the warriors tells Zeke to go to the front gate and leads Porco and Pieck to a different location. The solider leads the two warriors into a secluded property, before cutting the rope on a trap door and allowing the two to fall down a shaft.
Back in the cellar, Falco begins to think about why Reiner looks so frightened and questions who exactly Mr Kruger really is. Because Eren claimed he was Reiner’s old friend, Falco realises that if they knew each other for so long, then in theory Eren could be someone from Paradis island. On stage, Willy Tybur’s performance then takes an interesting turn, as he begins to reveal the truth about the great titan war, which the Tybur family had kept a secret for over 100 years.
It was revealed in the last episode, that the Tybur’s had secretly been in control of Marley since the great titan war, which is one of the things they gained by working with the king, in addition to their assured safety. Together with the Tybur’s, Fritz wanted to present a Marleyan as being responsible for ending the Eldian empire and Helos fulfilled that role. Fritz made a BINDING vow to renounce all war, which is why his successors such as Uri Reiss and Freida Reiss were unable to use the full power of the founding titan. They were always overtaken by Karl Frtiz’s ideology, and so even when titans were attacking their people, the vow renouncing war prevented them from taking real action.
The attack titan manifests itself, completely destroying the cellar that Reiner and Falco were in, as well as the building full of civilians. He emerges infront of the diplomat and journalists from around the world, before crushing the stage and Willy Tybur with his bear hands. This moment was so iconic and I think it was done incredibly well, but let me know what you guys think down below.

    6:47 I don't think this is a case of the Marley Military colluding with the Elidian spies. That is Jean behind the uniform, Piek also says she recognizes his funny beard, Also If that soldier was just a regular Marlean soldier why would the animators go to such extends such as hiding hia eyes for example. Great Content tho

    There was never a choice. Scene 1. Reiner destroy the walls to steal the Founding titan because if FT falls to the wrong hands. Their country would be destroyed by this person that stole FT. Scene 2: Kruger gives his powers to Grisha to steal the FT so that it doesnt fall to Marleyan hands. So that means if Reiner Annie and Bert didnt destroy the walls to steal FT. Then Grisha would have stole FT because Kruger gave him a mission to steal FT. It all falls down to assumption and precaution. Assuming if FT was stolen then it becomes a threat to both parties, And as a precaution both parties needs to steal FT.

    Isn't Karl Fritz actually called Karl Reise? Since the actual royal family is not the Fritz family? Or was Karl Fritz also a puppet and was there someone else that actually vowed to stop the war? Or is this just a fault in the manga/anime?

      I think that might be right

    I thought Eren wanted Falco there with them since he KNOWS that Reiner could protect him. REINER be the only one who has a chance at protecting anyone at that situation anyways. Also keeps Reiner in a passive state with the kid being inside.

    Hear me out. Future eren sent his memories to past owl and told grisha to love again and make a family in the wall. Thats eren telling his own father because if grisha doesnt marry Carla Eren would not be born meaning the robbers would come to mikasas house and kill mikasa parents and probably sell mikasa to a sex trackiffing slave or kill her. Armin when he was young was very weak and mentally weak untill he met eren. If eren never met armin armin wouldve die cus of thr person who he is without eren. And the survey cops might too die if another timeline where eren wldnt exist was born.

    How did magath know there were “rats” on the island? I always thought he was just assuming or preparing for the worst. & also I assumed he was talking about other countries rather then paradise as Eldians in the past 100 years never left the island so why would they expect them to show up and attack now?

    Yo, if wren doesn’t do justice to Eldians, Ima be pissed!

  • Kuuna.

    sasha dies, zeke and eren are half brothers. zeke gets captured by levi. levi puts an explosive to zeke, zeke detonates it and levi almost died saved by hange. zeke got saved by ymir (founding titan) ZEKE AND EREN has to touch so eren can see the founding titan. eren was gonna go tell ymir to euthanize all eldians but ymir took over eren and unfroze all of the wall titans to stomp on everything except paradis island. annie gets unfrozen. eren is no longer attack titan, he became the founding titan. latest manga chapter showed ymir was controlling erens future since he was a child. mikasa was only obsessed and protective over eren bc the ackerman clan was all about it. erens a host and mikasa was a parasite to him. titan wielders only have 13 years because of the 13 other slaves snitched on ymir freeing the pigs. ymir goes into a large tree finding the titan power. king fritz see her power and had children with her. failed assassination of fritz led to ymirs death. fritz ordered their kids to eat ymir’s dead body to pass down the titan power. that’s all i know. enjoy😈

    I don't see the point of 1. Using the manga to spoil plot points for the anime and 2. Not giving spoiler warnings. The anime left out these excerpts to create mystery and you just go "BY THE WAY IN THE MANGA." I literally cannot stand AOT manga readers who do this.

  • SkyeGacha

    Day 3 Of my theory until you do a video about this Deku And Uraraka Siblings Theory (This is original by me) So- I believe This and this is why. This Is first going to start with the similarities with Ochaco Uraraka And Inko Midoriya. First is appearance. Ochaco And Inko Have almost the same hairstyle, Hair isn't everything. They have the same eyes (Different colors of course) But the same style. And inko's quirk is a weaker version of Ochacos. Inko's Is telekinesis And Ochacos Is Zero Gravity. If Inko Trained her quirk to its full potential, Then it would be an EXACT copy of Urarakas. But. Again. this isn't the entire theory. As you said Kohei Is a fan Of starwars. And Luke and Leaha Felt "Fellings" together like Ochaco with Izuku. Later in the Series Luke finding out that they are siblings. And why would Ochaco be poor? Because her parents used there money to Adopt Ochaco. Making it my theory.

    So basically the war is happening because Eren wants revenge against the people who caused the death of his people and his mother.

      @Adept Marketing Solutions ok but he declared war saying they knew Eren was going to attack them first since he had the founder giant’s powers, and that is actually correct? Maybe if Eren and other spies weren’t there, he wouldn’t have revealed the truth and just let the initial plan proceed? Is that what you’re saying?

    Why would Marley openly say that they are preparing genocide of the nation that basically has the most powerful weapon in the world that can destroy the humanity in a day . Eldians can use it now because the only reason they couldn't is gone. Willy should've begged every country to make piece with Paradis or else they will be annihilated. I think declaration of war was the dumbest decision in the whole manga tbh. Like what were they expecting? They had nothing against the rumbling and they even knew about Eren.
