Things are getting more exciting on Attack on Titan, which makes fans say it was worth it to wait for nearly four years since Season 1 aired. The anime series is now on Episode 7. Meanwhile, a voice actor behind Reiner, a major character, has announced a sudden hiatus. Yoshimasa Hosoya's doctor advised him to take a leave, as his throat has been overused.

Warning: Attack on Titan Season 2 spoilers ahead.

Next week on Attack on Titan Season 2, Episode 7, the Colossal Titan and the Armored Titan get into close combat with the Scouts. They can't turn their back now as they pursue their mission to exterminate every human. It is a mission that Reiner and the others have devoted themselves to because they are warriors. Spoilers tease that Reiner's role is about to change in a major way for the rest of the season.

Meanwhile, Reiner also has a big revelation, although it was done like it was no big deal. Yet, it is a big plot twist. Reiner told Eren Jaeger he is the Armored Titan, while Bertolt is the Colossal Titan. There were suspicions among Hange and the Corps about Reiner and Bertolt, which was explained through a flashback in Attack on Titan Season 2, Episode 6. With Reiner's confession, Eren felt betrayed. He transformed into a Titan towards the end of the episode in a cliffhanger that left fans wondering if he would fight Reiner.

In Episode 6, Ymir also transformed into a titan beast, much to the surprise of her comrades, especially Reiner and Krista. She jumped off the Utgard Castle Tower to fight the titans and save her friends. Reiner also learned Ymir's secret that she consumed a friend years ago.

This season of Attack on Titan continues to follow Eren Jaeger as he continues to fight against the titans to save mankind.
