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.

    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.

    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.

    @Leonardo Oberti Willy's justification of war against Paradis is that Eren stole the power of King Fritz and he is not restricted with the vow so he has the ability to destroy the world via activating the Rumbling (unleash million wall titans) he gonna declare war non the less since he viewed Eren as destructor of Peace. Him knowing that Eren might attack so he tries to use it on his advantage to make the world side with him.

    @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?

  • Adept Marketing Solutions

    nope, whether Eren wants revenge or not, Willy and Marley is gonna attack Paradis anyway. one thing to notice, Willy is the one to declare war first, Eren just responded to the Declaration, if he wants revenge why wait till the last speech with a resignation face of Eren. kinda like if someone says I will punch you and then you punch the guy, will u call it revenge?

    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.

    When I started watching attack on titan it seemed like such a simple world. I actually cancelled it after a few episodes, cause i thought it was cliché shounen, but then rewatched it after a few years and kept going. Now its one of the most anticipated things in my life. Loved how one common enemy can unite humanity and force human creativeness and ambition into technological wonders. It was a shock realizing that aot is just like our world, there is no outside enemy. We humans are the biggest enemy of ourselves. With our difference in genes, cultures and ideologies comes major conflicts.

    what? last time they fought he saw Eren activate the power of Founding Titan, commanding the Mindless Titans to attack him. isn't that why they declare war on Paradis coz they are afraid of Eren using the power of the founder.

    I think that no one is doing the wrong thing. It’s all about perspective and principles to some people Eren could be the villain and to others he could be the hero in the end every single person is doing what they need to do. They’re ALL humans(though some are more powerful such as Titans). All those people are different but all come from one living thing(humans). So this is my small take on who can be considered wrong/right it’s a pretty double-sided argument to me.

    Whoa whoa whoa. You’ve missed a key factor here - Reiner wanting respect is a LOT different from how you described it. Consider how Eldians - even warriors and warrior candidates are treated in Marley. I don’t think this was only about personal glory - it was about feeling human again - which is also part of what drives Eren. That’s why Eren says at the end of it all - we’re the same.

    I think Eren meant for Falco to stay in the basement so that when he transformed Reiner could protect him (when Eren starts to transform Reiner immediately turns around to shield Falco), rather than if Falco went back upstairs to the audience he would have a much more likely chance of getting killed during the attack. So I’d like to think Eren did care about Falco and their friendship a little bit :)

  • Jonah

    Man the current state of the series has me so upset. I can’t side with anyone or trust anyone because they’re all good and bad at the same time, so I guess the show is doing it’s job well in that regard. On one hand, Reiner and the warriors made life a living hell for the Paradis eldians, but they were just going off of orders they had recieved. The brainwashing and ordering of the warriors to slaughter their own kind is in and of itself Marleyan oppression. The common enemy of both the paradis eldians and the internment eldians is the Marleyans, but because the Internment camp eldians can’t see past their brainwashing, and Eren and the scouts can’t see past their hatred for the warriors that killed their families and friends, they’re pitted against each other. I was really hoping when Eren had realized that him and Reiner were the same they could team up against Marley, but it looks like that’s not gonna happen, which is a shame because I love Reiner because he’s an excellently written character.
