Ep 7 – “Small Blade: The Struggle for Trost, Part 3” / “Chiisana Yaiba -Torosuto-ku Kōbōsen (3)-“ (小さな刃 ―トロスト区攻防戦③―)
The surviving squads, unable to reach the inner walls due to their Omni-directional Mobility Gears being low on gas, lose their fighting spirit as the nearby supply depot is overrun by Titans. Mikasa learns from Armin that his entire squad perished, including Eren. Seemingly unfazed, Mikasa rallies the others to reclaim the supply depot, and they are inspired to join her in the attack. Mikasa ends up running out of gas mid-air and falls into an alleyway, leading Jean to assume command. However, he loses his nerve when he sees some of his comrades being eaten by Titans. As a blonde Titan approaches Mikasa, she at first accepts her fate but instinctively starts fighting back after remembering Eren’s words of perseverance. As she prepares to attack with her only remaining broken blade, another Titan appears behind her and brutally kills the blonde Titan, much to her confusion. Armin and Conny show up, and they are all shocked to see the Rogue Titan not only fighting other Titans, but also showing knowledge of their weak point and using hand-to-hand combat techniques, while completely ignoring the humans. Armin gives Mikasa his gas tanks and blades so that she can support the others at the supply depot. Mikasa, however, refuses to leave him behind and ponders on the Rogue Titan’s strange behavior.
