I mean these animes will use whatever emotional attachment you have for the show to get you to watch the next episode. The suspense that the viewers get from harbouring strong emotions for a long period of time is drastically more powerful than the few minutes of tension you experience from watching the show. Sometimes upsetting and frustrating points of the story are more effective than the hype of an action scene, or the joy of a happy scene. So if you're frustrated, then it worked.
to be honest I think Shinra isn't Knocked out yet... He just planned even more ahead and got to know that Giovanni is part of the Evangelist? Or else there's still help coming or something That makes Giovanni retreat?
i kinda agree, but another theory is he will be captured by the evangalists and taken to their place where he'll meet his brother, escape from there with the help from his firefighting friends (if this is smth that actually happens don't downvote me lol)
that's possible too.. xD Since the Opening did show them fighting each other :thinking: But what I'm sure about is, is that Giovanni cannot cover up his ties with the Evangelists now that there are people knowing about that very fact.
