Georgina Goldie Osgood case

The truth is that every time I see more about the victims of this hotel, I feel it’s haunted, some people have found their final destination there. I believe many people don’t remember her, this lady could be my adorable grandmother. R. I. P.

The death of “Pigeon” Goldie Osgood

On June 4th a 79 year old retired telemarketer named Goldie Osgood was found in her hotel room dead. The autopsy showed that she was beaten, stabbed and choked with a rag. Her hotel room was ransacked. Friends say they talked her merely minutes before her death.

She was known for feeding pigeons at a nearby park and that’s how she earned her nickname “Pigeon Goldie”. Interestingly, she was staying at the Cecil hotel, where she was very liked and was a long time residence.

Not much information can be found about her death. Only that a man named Jacques B. Ehlinger was arrested a few hours after her body was found. He had been seen walking in the same area Ms. Osgood would feed pigeons. He was covered in blood, but was later released due to lack of evidence.

Her case has gone cold like many others, I think it’s very sad that this kind old lady had such a horrible death, I wish her dead is settled and the guilty found. I hope somebody can read about her and help solve her case.

Coraline (The movie)

Today I want to analyze a film, although it’s animated its message is very deep. I watched the movie some days ago and I’ll analyze it part by part from my own perspective and I hope you enjoy it.

This film was made by Laika studio and is based on the book with same name, the book was written by Neil Gaiman; the movie was released in 2009. The film revolves around Coraline, an 11 year old girl whose parents don’t pay her enough attention. She and her family moved to a new house, Coraline explores the doors in her new home. Thirteen of them can be opened normally but the fourteenth is closed and boarded up, and this door transports her to a parallel world where everything is perfect. Her parents pay attention and they’re funny, the furniture has life, they’re her friends and food is delicious. However things aren’t as they seem and Coraline little by little realizes that everything has price and that price can be too expensive.

The start sequence of this movie is quite peculiar, we see how a doll comes flying through the window, a metallic hands take the doll and we can see like they rebuild it in a new doll, one equal to Coraline. Something which really strikes me about this scene, is that the first doll was full of cotton and when they’re rebuilding the new doll who looks like Coraline, they full it with sawdust. I see it as a reincarnation, externally and internally the doll doesn’t look same but we must not forget, the cloth that was used to create the new doll, it was used too to create the previous doll.

She lives in a three-level house, she shares it with her neighbors, she lives in the middle floor. I’ll describe her neighbors down because I found them quite interesting.

Mr. Bobinsky: he’s a retired Russian acrobat, lives on the top floor and is obsessed with kangaroo rats. I consider he’s the representation of God and my reasons are as follows:

*While all the other characters have normal skin tones, he has a blue skin tone, it’s like a way to tell us that he’s not real or is superior, or different.

*He’s dedicated to training mice so they’ll do what he wants, we’re talking about a superior being who do that inferior beings to move at his will.

*Something that also strikes me is about Bobinsky’s elasticity and acrobatics, which makes him move around the house with great ease. This is for me the most real performance about omnipresence.

Miss Spink and Miss Forcible: if Bobinsky is a representation of God, someone has to be Satan, right? In this case they’re in fact two Miss Spink and Miss Forcible. Their house is full of decadent temptation, I mean there are pictures of them when they were younger and successful and both practice esoteric arts.

A scene that caught my attention is when Coraline visits them for first time and is greeted by three black Schnauzer dogs and I couldn’t stop thinking about Cerberus, the three-headed dog who guarded gates of  underworld in Greek mythology.

In the world behind the fourteenth door live her other parents, it’s her perfect world, where she has what she always wanted and everyone is like she wants, the other world is tailor made for Coraline. The plot of the film is when Coraline rejects the offer of her other mom to stay there and sew buttons on her eyes. Then everything becomes dark, the other world is no longer perfect, her other mom kidnaps Coraline’s true parents, then a black cat who’s able to talk in the other world helps her.

The cat tells her she has to search the kid’s eyes (3) who are trapped in three different objects. He also plays the role of being her conscience, who from the beginning tries to warm her that everything is wrong and she shouldn’t accept anything from the other world, even when in real life the cat can’t speak, he does everything to make her understands that she shouldn’t go to the other world.

The most important symbol in whole movie are the buttons, the otherworldly characters have buttons instead of eyes; and this has two meanings. The first one, is that these versions of the characters aren’t really humans, they’re tailor made puppets for Coraline, proof of this is when Coraline complains about Wybe who speaks a lot in real world and in the other word Wybe can’t talk.

The second meaning and most important, is that in the universal philosophy, “eyes are windows of your soul” so these characters have no soul and itself what her other mother wanted from Coraline it’s was not simply that she sew buttons on her eyes, she wanted her soul too.

To conclude this analysis, I’ll explain the message that I think film wants to give us. Coraline is a metaphor of postmodern life cycle, in a successful case it’s worth mentioning, the girl is the reincarnation of a past life who failed to find a purpose to live. Coraline lives under sky and over hell, technically it’s the plane in which we find ourselves.

She lives a life in which she doesn’t feel satisfied and longs to have a perfect life, but at what point to desire a better life, can it be harmful? The moment you decide to abandon everything you’re and all those who support you to seek an ideal of non-existent perfection. New generations grow up looking for perfection whitout realizing that being a better version of yourself is different than being something you’re not at all.

Have a nice weekend!

Elisa Lam case

I recently saw the story of this girl in I. D. It was really shocked, this type of topics also interest me. I think all human beings are morbid and curious. So I’ll give my point of view on the case. I want to clarify that apart from watching the TV program I gathered the largest amount of information about it.

For those who don’t know I’ll contextualize. Elisa Lam was a Canadian woman, her parents come from Hong Kong, she was born there (Hong Kong), but she lived most of her life in Canada, she was born on April 30, 1991, on the year of her dead she was 21 years old, she was studying at British Columbia University in Vancouver, Canada.

Her story began in January 2013. She arrived in Los Angeles and stayed at Cecil hotel, it was ver popular on 20’s and 50’s currently it has bad reputation. It’s said she came LA to visit and have nice vacation there. She was a normal girl, she had a travel blog where she published on all her experiences. Even if she was far away, also had the habit of calling her parents every day, until January 31, that day she didn’t call her parents so they worried, they tried contact her, but when they achieved it, they went with police.

The police went at Cecil hotel, they checked her room and there was no sign about violence or something inusual happened there, the room was in perfect condition and some of her belongings were there, less her mobile and so three weeks went by absolutely nothing happened. This is where things get weird.

Exactly on February 19, 2013. The guests started to complain about water taste, sometimes it came out black first and then it took a brown color from the faucets, after complaints the hotel owners and maintenance staff checked the water tanks, when surprisingly the found in decomposition the body of Elisa Lam in one of the tanks, she had died 19 days ago, in few words the guests were drinking Elisa Lam’s water.

This case is one of the most mysterious although it has already been closed, it has more questions than answers. After they found her in the tank, the police reviewed the security recordings in the hotel and they found the recording I pasted in the link of this post.

For me the recording is very disturbing because she appears in the elevator doing strange things, it seems she’s hiding from someone, she’s completely terrified, even after minute 1 she do strange movements with her hands, for me that’s not human, it’s not normal and it’s very scary.

There are 3 theories that people talk about to explain her death and then I’ll listed them.

1. The first theory is what police said. I think they did it with the desire to silence rumors and close the case and not link it with natural phenomena, but for me it doesn’t make much sense. Basically the police said she had mental problems and her death was a suicide thanks to her mental issues and it explains her behavior in the elevator. Obviously her parents debated it and they said she didn’t have any mental issue, she was very happy.

2. This theory is the most reasonable for me. Something I forgot to say before is that I to acces the roof’s hotel can be done if you have a card access if you don’t have it, you can’t enter and the receptionist and maintenence staff they were the only ones with an access card, and when the door is opened an alarm is activated which sounds at the reception. That day strangely the alarm did not sound, nobody knew anything.

For me her behavior in the elevator isn’t normal and also it seems that she was running from a ghost, you don’t see anyone when the elevator’s door is open, she tries to close the elevator doors and they don’t close and when she leaves the elevator the door opens and closes. Another thing is that to open the tank you need a lot of strength and she was a thin woman I belive that a paranormal force possessed her so the alarm didn’t sound, she was able to open the tank and enter there until her dead. I believe that the paranormal force ordered too to take off her clothes, enter the tank and she done it, she followed orders in my opinion.

3. I don’t have third theory and maybe you can help find another theory and if you want give me your opinion on this case it will be well received.

Happy week!

The perfect accent or the correct pronunciation?

For those who don’t know, I’m professional in Modern Languages, a translator of profession, by choice and vocation, this topic is very controversial, but as translator I saw many linguistic theories at the University. So I’ll give my perspective, I’ll try to be as objective as possible and I hope not to hurt anyone. I also want to clarify that I’m a native Spanish speaker, and I know English is universal and I’m aware about it, that’s why I’ll use English language to give my point of view but with examples related in Spanish language.

The accent is related with the cadence that the language adopts in the different places where it is spoken. There are no better or worse accents, there are simply different accents. According to the online dictionary of the RAE, it’s “the set of phonetic, rhythmic and melodic particularities that characterize the speech of a country, region, city and so on”.

As for the pronunciation, I think we can make two distinctions: how to pronounce a certain letter in different countries (for example the pronunciation of “Y” in Spain and Colombia). In this case both are correct, they are accepted varieties of pronunciation of same letter “Y”. On the other hand, there are pronunciations that we can consider wrong, and they can be due difficulties or mistaken beliefs particular of a certain speaker or group of speakers. For example, pronouncing “Ll” as “Li” (to say streila and not estrella) is incorrect. People who try to pretend a “cultivated” pronunciation of language, unworthy of their own, they usually make this mistake. Another error of similar pronunciation is when you’re trying to distinguish “b” from “v”. In Spanish we don’t make this distinction.

For pronunciation, we must stick to the varieties accepted by the real academy (it’s very useful to search the accepted pronunciation of each letter in the pan-hispanic dictionary of doubts, also available online).

There’s an idea perhaps something negative – or rightly, a prejudice- of the accent. In the media we often hear “neutral accent” as if there really is such a thing. Very often in international media. However, we must know that aligning our accent is almost impossible, first, because our accent not only reflects cultural modes of behavior that we have learned since we’re acquiring our mother tongue.

Also, there are biological components related with the development and maturation of our entire body. Let’s not to forget the geographic and historical background releted to the evolution of a dialect in an area. Therefore, we grow conditioned to speak with a certain accent. In conclusion there’s not perfect accent to speak a language, but there’s a correct pronunciation regardless of the accent.

Over the Garden Wall

bcfef4473428a34062c9a36c8ebbf36f

I recently saw this miniseries again, it has 10 chapters, a series as fascinating as this deserves an analysis that although it is very personal, I will also make it as objective as possible. If you have not seen it I recommend it, on the other hand I want to warn you that my analysis contains a spoiler and if you do not like spoilers I recommend you do not read it.

This series was released in 2014 by Cartoon Network and created by Patick Mchale, it can be said that he had the opportunity of his life when he worked in this series, after being the animator and storyboard in “Flapjack and Adventure time”; also it is worth mentioning that this is the first miniseries in which Cartoon Nertwork has worked seriously with a plot with a beginning and an end. It is the first innovative series among its kind

Let me tell you a story, a story about two brothers Wirt and Greg, two brothers who got lost in the forest of the unknown. Wirt the eldest is a fearful boy who loves clarinet and poetry, but his fears make him keep things to himself. Greg the youngest is a child who lives without worry, he always carries with him his frog, a frog which sings, they found it in the forest and it is their pet, both are helped by the old and wise lumberjack and a tile called Beatrice; while they help the brothers in their adventures in the forest of the unknown, they are all persecuted by the beast.

The series in its visual aspect reminds us  the ancient stories of British children drawn by hand, with a somber style that degrades in a void as the characters move, with a huge detail in a lugubrious environment with great quality; something that shows us that it is made in an artisanal way.

If you have asked yourself when animation becomes art, well over the garden wall plays a lot with that concept, with its slow and macabre style using varied techniques, a delight in visual terms, we have 10 episodes with an approximate duration of 11 minutes each.

The music is paramount in over the garden wall, with its changing musical rhythms with its characters, I recommend that with the soundtrack close your eyes and let it go. The plot of this series is for both children and adults: “the fear” Should we accept fear and live with it? or should we do something to face it? Is it good to be a fearless boy like Greg? Or is it better to keep things to yourself as Wirt?

This series has to be seen very carefully to understand it better every movement is important, everything has a symbolism, if you are distracted, you can lose the thread of the series in over the garden wall you do not have to fear the beast if not yourselves

 

What would have happened, if Vegeta had been shipment to earth?

hqdefault

Dragon Ball is a world-famous drawing, I would dare to say  it is the most famous story known and written by Akira Toriyama and many generations grew up with it, and because of that, the vast majority of us know the canonical history, and we have seen it so many times that it is rude to ask, if you read the manga. But what if I told you a different story, my dear readers.

I found a manga which is very good and succulent (in my opinion) so I’ll tell you about a manga created by a fan, which I’m sure many will like.

Do you remember how Goku came to earth? Well forget it, because the Saiyan who will now come to earth will be Vegeta, if, as you will be imagining, this manga is about the events of Vegeta’s shipment to Earth instead of Goku. Yes, guys, he is son Vegeta the beloved grandson of son Gohan.

And you know perfectly the difference of powers between Goku and Vegeta, in the original version of Dragon Ball, Goku was sent to Earth because he had a low fighting power when he was a baby, it was the main reason of his shipment to Earth since its inhabitants were not very strong. Well the truth is that they are rubbish (sarcasm).

The point I want to get, is that Vegeta is a high class warrior, for such reason it is obvious, when he was a boy, Vegeta was very powerful for the level of power of the earthlings; and that’s what I like about manga, because it respects the levels of power they told us in the story of Dragon Ball Z (You should learn from this manga Dragon Ball Super, LOL).

The events that occur in the story are the same as happened with Goku, but I already mentioned the difference in fighting power between Goku and Vegeta, that difference makes drastic changes in history. As for example, one of the first enemies of Goku, were the members of the red ribbon.

Vegeta, who has a stronger character than Goku does not doubt, and he rushes to the Red ribbon facility and destroys them in less than an instant. To Pilaf’s gang with a simple power he gets rid of them. Against Piccolo Daimaku, who was a villain who was very difficult for Goku; Vegeta defeats him very easily.

Do you remember when Goku got engaged in the martial arts tournament with Milk? and so he started his family? Well if you thought that Vegeta and Milk would be together in this manga, it’s not like that. What happens is the following: In the original story in Dragon Ball, Ten-shin-han fights against Tao Pai-Pai, in this manga who fights against Tao Pai-Pai is Vegeta.

When Tao Pai-Pai is being practically defeated, you know he is a coward. Then he moves quickly and catches Bulma by threatening Vegeta with cutting off her neck, and he tells him the following: “I did my research, this woman is your girlfriend”; Vegeta as a good saiyan blushes and quickly attacks Tao Pai-Pai with a power. He has no more than flee, as the coward, he is.

Vegeta says to Bulma: “Are not you tired of being a hostage?”, and she answers: “Perhaps is it my fault?” And that’s where Vegeta seals his fate, he tells her: “if you want me to protect you, you should be with me” Bulma as we all know is very intelligent, never turns down a chance. And she says  him: “it’s a proposal?” and before Vegeta reacts, Bulma accepts, and everyone applauds for their future marriage. less one person, the Yamsha cuckoo.

In the last battle, Vegeta easily defeats Piccolo, since as we all know, in this part Piccolo must have about 350 points of combat power, but Vegeta realizes that this Piccolo unlike the previous one has a good heart so let him live. But you know that if Vegeta leaves him alive, it’s for him to take care of his son’s future. It is the dark destination of Piccolo (babysitting service LOL).

Already in Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta visits Kame House, but this time with Bulma and their son Trunks (yes, the same old wretch LOL). when they are talking, Vegeta feels a very powerful ki approaching, and we all know is Raditz. While you remember, in this part of the story, Raditz humiliates Goku and kidnaps his son; well… in this story, Vegeta brutally strikes Raditz and kills him easily.

Raditz when he is on the brink of death chooses to call his friends, and that’s where we see the great Kakarot, No, it’s not Goku. Remember that the name of Goku was put by Grandpa Gohan, since Kakarot never came to earth, he is then Kakarot. And this Kakarot is even worse than the original Vegeta.

Since when he hears something does not please him abusively mistreats Nappa, saying something like: “shut up, dog!” . once kakarot and Nappa comes to earth, Vegeta just goes fast to face them, Vegeta shows a small part of his power and is seen in the tracker a fighting power of 13 thousand. Nappa realizing he will not be able to defeat him under any circumstances.

He asks Kakaroto: “What should I do?”, and Kakarot answers: “You’ll fight Nappa, I want to have fun”. As I told you this Kakaroto is an unfortunate (but later in history, a balance occurs and I really like this version, more than the idiot boy version). Nappa still knowing he can not do anything against him, same fight, and obviously he is easily defeated by Vegeta.

Bulma at that moment is very confident with voctory’s Vegeta, as Kakarot registers a fighting power of 5500, but we all know, Kakarot always makes surprises. And it is then when, Kakarot shows to Vegeta he also can control his Ki, increasing his power to unimaginable levels. The fight follows a course in which Kakarot has an absolute advantage over Vegeta.

He hits him, hits him, and beats him for longer, and even go back to Vegeta his best technique, the truth this is a massacre. reaches the point at which Kakarot summits Vegeta, he can not do anything and we see tears of frustation because he can not beat Kakarot, and when he decides to kill him, Vegeta is saved.

And guess who saves him, Who saves him? Master Karin! Vegeta had not used an “assumption” increase in ultra sacred water power, Master Karin persuades Kakarot to let the ultra sacred water to Vegeta, so he can have a better fight, he agrees and Vegeta receives the ultra sacred water. Vegeta falls asleep and surprisingly, Kakarot waits all night until Vegeta wakes up the next morning.

Once Vegeta awakes the battle starts again, and this time seems to be a more even combat, there are effective blows by both, and the struggle goes on and on. There comes a moment in which Vegeta begins to remember what taught by his sensei, and it is where he uses the Kamehameha, and seems to be defeating Kakarot; when Vegeta is celebrating his victory.

Kakarot appears surprisingly, more excited because Vegeta is a good opponent. And this is how the fight continues, blows here, blows over there. It is at that moment when Vegeta remembers all his trainings with his friends and decides to make an attack with strategy, and thus succeeds in knocking out Kakarot.

If Vegeta could remember his past and increase his power, then Kakarot also does, he remembers all the suffering he went through with Raditz and Nappa, and how they abused him, for his low level of fighting, and that’s how Kakarot gets up, and the fight continues. blows, blows, and more blows.

And this time the final match is unleashed, Kakaroto cleverly gives Vegeta a direct hit on Vegeta’s face which knocks him out, Vegeta tries to stand up and Kakarot, as he is a very good person, gives him a 10 second chance to stand up and fight, if he does not get up, Kakarot will kill him, Vegeta tries to stand up, but fails in those 10 seconds.

And it is so Kakarot draws energy to eliminate him, but no, Kakarot laughs and forgives his life, and he tells him he is happy to find him, because he needed help from another saiyan, and that help is needed to defeat Freezer, since this Kakarot knows perfectly that Freezer eliminated his planet, he needs mates to overthrow him.

Vegeta hears everything Kakarot tells him and agrees to go with him, because he immediately assumes, that if Freezer destroyed their planet, he will go to seek and destroy them, and most likely he also thinks about destroying the earth along with them. Vegeta does not hesitate and says goodbye to his family, uses the Nappa’s ship and starts their journey across the universe. And this is how Kakarot and Vegeta unite their destinies to fulfill a single objective, to defeat the emperor of the universe.

Yes, I know just like you, that Vegeta is the clusterfuck  for Akira Toriyama, Why do I say this? because Vegeta does not win anything, he does not win even when he is good, what injustice do the creators of Dragon Ball to Vegeta!

Well I hope you liked it and read the manga

Happy weekend!

 

 

 

 

 

Complete Analysis of Chapter 86 of Shingeki no Kyojin

I want to warn people who read my site, most of my theories are my own discoveries after watching the series, reading the manga and looking for information about it. If you have not read the manga and you do not want me to ruin what will happen in the second season of the anime with the analysis of this chapter, it is better that you do not read it.

I will begin to analyze this chapter, because it is a very revealing chapter, that’s why I did not analyze the previous chapters to this, if you want to know what happened in the previous chapters, I recommend you to see the anime and read manga.

maxresdefault3

The chapter begins with the reading of the books, which they found in the basement, and also says, that whoever finds the books, will be the bearer of hope. Which leads me to think, that Grisha did not know who could find the books, maybe because he did not think to show it to Eren from the beginning. After this message, it shown us the childhood and family of Grisha Jaeger.

When he and his sister are about to leave their house, their mother stops them and tells them that they must first use their bracelets (some bands in their arms), and asks Grisha not to leave the walls under any circumstances. They live in a ghetto, that is, a neighborhood or zone inhabited by people who have the same origin or condition and they live isolated and marginalized for racial or cultural reasons. This is because they belong to a race called the Elddians.

When Grisha’s mother warns him not to leave the walls for any reason, this reminds me Carla warning Eren. Grisha likewise decided to take a walk with his sister, then Grisha’s sister is excited to see a Zeppelin and she longs to drive it one day. But the Zeppelin quickly disappeared from their sight, and that’s when Grisha takes her sister by the arm and together they run out of their gueto, to see the dirigible.

After arriving at the new district, Grisha and his sister are treated with contempt due to their race, quickly they arrive at the field and can see the landing of zeppelin, but both are discovered by two soldiers. they call themselves Marley’s warriors. and ask them if they have the permission of exit, to which Grisha responds that they do not have any  permission of exit, so they are brutally punished. One of the guards takes Grisha’s sister across the field, while another guard stays with Grisha.

The next day they found his sister dead at the river’s edge. The warriors began to persecute the Jaeger family, because their son crossed the walls, and they insist them in that they should teach the history of their ancestors to their children  so they understand why they are treated like this. If you realize, this whole situation refers to the Second World War, where the Nazis lock up the Jews for being an ethnicity considered as inferio, they had to have a band on the arm that would identify them, otherwise they were executed immediately. The vehicles that appear in the chapter are of the first world war, so it could be a mixture between both, we must also remember that almost all the names of the characters of shigeki are German, with what’s allusion makes more sense.

After this it shows us as Grisha’s father tells him because his ancestors were sinners. 1820 years ago a woman named Ymir Fritz made a pact with the devil thus obtaining the power of the titan, with this power her tribe could defeat all their enemies, when she died these powers were divided into 9 parts. The founding titan (is the first of the nine titans, granting its user the unique hability to control the actions if the titans “it is named the coordinate”) the attack titan, the colossus titan, the armored titan, the female titan, the beast titan, the jaw titan, the cart titan, the warhammer. These powers were distributed by the people of Ymir, called the eldians.

According to the story told by the Marleyans, the Elddians subjected the rest of the races considering them inferior and forced them to join them, this lasted more than 1700 years, but one day the remaining Marleyans decided to make a revolution against the Elddians in order to recapture the mainland. This war lasted 80 years.

With the start of this, one of the descendants of the royal family decided to flee the mainland to a nearby island called paradise island, there he took great part of the people of Eldia and built the 3 walls for protection, but unfortunately not all were taken there. The Marleyans won the war and punished the Elddians by locking them in ghettos.

It is revealed that Grisha was a great doctor, since he inherited the hospital from his father. when he grew up and turned 18, he discovered that his sister was killed by Marleyans. Grisha decides to join the people who want to regain the pride of the eldians and interprets all the data they have available.

And they realize that they have been deceived by the people of Marley, apparently, the Elddians never submitted to other races, but they created a balance between the 8 existing races, without it they all fought for no reason, and from what can be seen, each of the factions possesses a titan power.

When the war between the Elddians and the Marleyans ends, the Marleyans succeded in taking 7 powers of titan, and it is here when the question arises: How could the Marleyans win the war, if at first they did not possess any titan power?. I think it was thanks to an alliance they made with one of the 8 races, and because they  took advantage of the suitable moment to fight.

The war begins when the king  Fritz number 145, decides to leave the  mainland and exile hiself in paradise island, without him the balance of races would break provoking a nonsensical struggle, at that moment the Marleyan warriors took advantage to let the other races destroy each other and thus steal the powers of titan being the winners of the war.

It is revealed that when King No. 145 decided to isolate himself on the island, the lineage of the Fritz who separated from the one who would now carry the power of the coordinate giving rise to the new royal family the Reiss, only they would act from the shadows eaving a lure Reiss with the same surname of the original lineage.

Going back to the present it shown us which is called nocturnal owl, and basically is the woman will marry Grisha “Diana Fritz”, the last descendant of the royal blood. Grisha plans to return the power of the first titan to Diana so they could defeat the Marleyans.

A year later Grisha and Diana were married and had a son whom they called Zecke, and Grisha says that technology has advanced at an alarming rate. It also reveals how the photograph found in the basement was taken.

A little later the Marleyan warriors made an announcement to the Eldian people, commenting that King Fritz had declared the war. Although I believe this statement is false, since there would be no way that King Fritz would have communicated with them, and there was no reason to declare war on them, this false argument served as an excuse for them to be able to take over the coordinate and fossil resources of paradise island.

On this occasion they needed to recruit soldiers of the eldian blood, of healthy children between 5 and 7 years, in return the relatives of whose children became warriors, they would obtain recognition and they would live with luxury, later they commented, they would only choose a few children, since they must be able to assimilate the titan power. Imagine how many families wanted to give their children without hesitation to improve their living standards and how many children had to be disposed by incompatibility.

They could not attack immediately, since King Fritz threatened people with releasing the 10 million colossal titans and would wipe out the whole world, if they attacked him. The walls were a measure both defensive and offensive against enemies.

Grisha plans to infiltrate his son Zeke and get titan power, to get the coordinate before the Marleyans. But it was his worst mistake, since when Zeke turned 7 he betrayed his family and gave them to the Marleyan government, they were sentenced to wander on paradise island until they were devoured by titans. As I explained above the explanation of this chapter reveals many mysteries and belies many theories.

Finally there is revealed  the mission of the infiltrated cadets in the 104 squadron and their reason to hate people who live inside the wall. They infiltrated in order to obtain the coordinate and conquer the great island, taking out the natural resources and their hatred of people is because they are eldians, the five children chosen to inherit the titan power were: Zeke, Reiner Braun, Annie Leonhardt, Bertolt Hoover and Marcel Galliard-

But in my opinion only Zeke and Annie were the Eldians and the other three pure Marleyans, since we know Zeke is Grisha’s son, about Annie, if you realize Reiner insisted, she should prove, she was a true warrior; if she were Marley she would have nothing to prove, do not? And if you notice, she was very pious with the people of the walls, maybe because she knew they had their own blood and they were innocent.

It can also be shown that the 5 candidates were forced to perform that mission, and that’s why throughout the series you can see they are fed up and want to finish their mission as soon as possible to return  their home. Zeke’s words “the damn mission” make sense, since from infance they have been forced to kill against their will.

Although they do not explain how Grisha acquires his titan form, since if he was devoured and transformed into a common titan he must have eaten a changing titan to return to his normal form, means this, the warriors sent a warrior with the powers of the changing titan and Grisha devoured him? This would be a case similar to Ymir, since she regained her normal form after having devoured Marcel.

It can be evidenced, a hatred towards Ymir not only to have the name of the creator of the titans but by the fact of being born, since she is an eldian. It is also revealed why Isayama said that Ymir kept the key of the series, but he did not refer to the current Ymir  but to the first one, since she was the one who created the titans.

It reveals which is the ideology of the first king is and why they should not break the walls and free mankind, since if they destroy the walls they would free the colossal ones destroying the world, in addition the people inside the walls are being protected from the cruelty of the outside world.

One of the powers might be related to the Ackerman family, although this power would not be to become a titan, but to have the titan power in a human body, it is noteworthy that a small number of Eldians accompanied the king number 145 when he isolated hiself on the island, and it is likely that in the group were people from  Ackerman clan, who would be in charge of protecting the king  at any cost.

I tried to reveal the greatest number of secrets revealed in the 86 chapter in this post, but they are a lot, so it is impossible I have not missed some.

Happy week!
