Shingeki No Kyojin OVA #3

This OVA I think was definitely my favorite SNK OVA out of all of them so far, because that it wasn’t in the manga, making it new content for most people, and that it wasn’t really a joke kind of episode, like the OVA #2. It was more action filled and serious. And that ending was pretty sad where Marco said something like “I wonder what type of soldiers we will be” and it just ends.

Anonymous asked: I was wondering if you knew the answer to this question; when weiss and noir were talking in that white dream-like area, why did noir lie to weiss saying if they fused they would "set shades free to the world"? why wouldn't noir tell weiss the truth about it saving the humans?


Because Noir is a jerk.

This is the only thing I can think of. I know that, in context of story construction, it wouldn’t be very smart to have him say “No, dude, listen, we’re totally saving the world, this is what happened”— the player can’t be privy to the twist at the end, and it requires a certain amount of obfuscation along the way.

This is a weird way to address the issue, by having the character make some intentionally confusing statements that keep the audience and the characters in the dark, although it’s a well-honored tradition among all forms of fiction (movies, television, books, games, even oral tradition— a lot of stories would collapse on themselves if only heroes and villains had tried to talk to each other before going for the throat. Poor communication kills).

But, at the very least, it’s established in “And Then There Were None” that Noir is legitimately just a raging asshole, and it’s totally conceivable that he was just trying to psyche Weiss out because that was more fun than telling him what was actually up.

So, answer: Noir is a terrible person and did it for funsies.
