Warning! Spoilers for Attack on Titan’s 95th chapter lie below!
The Attack on Titan anime may be on break, but Hajime Isayama’s manga is taking no such hiatus. Today, a new chapter was released which heavily focused on Marley and Reiner Braun’s involvement with the Titan Shifters. And, after a very long wait, readers learned who exactly the ninth Titan Shifter is.
In the manga, readers follow as Zeke meets with Reiner and others to talk about how they might still retrieve the Founding Titan. The soldier reveals a family within Marley will help them since the Teiber Clan is the group who oversees the Warhammer Titan.
“100 years ago, in the Great Titan War, they were the first noble family to raise the banner of revolution against King Fritz. As honorary Marleyans, although they assumed a stance of non-intervention both in politics and war, they thought about the future of Marley and Eldia and Rose to the occasion as necessary,” Zeke explained.
Peck also chimed in, explaining, “It’s true that the Teiber family has never used their Titan power against an enemy country. More than anything, in the Great Titan War with the withdrawal of King Fritz, this family has a lot of influence… If we go through the Teiber family, the world will definitely have to list to what we have to say.”
The chapter did not give fans a look at the Warhammer Titan nor its shifter, but fans believe they have seen the Titan before. In previous chapters, Attack on Titan has glossed over the Great Titan War, and images like the one below were drawn. Fans can see there is one Titan featured who carries a massive hammer similar to the one Thor carries, so it would not be surprising to learn that Titan is the one inherited by the Teiber family.
You can read the synopsis for Attack on Titan season two below:
