Isayama and Araki on Sasha Blouse dialect:

Isayama & Araki take a lot of consideration toward Sasha's speech patterns in the 2nd season, because she usually speaks in the standard language. But when she returns to her hometown in season 2, Sasha speaks in dialect. Isayama wonders if it's going to be a good idea to have her dialogue this way, since she was initially introduced as a speaker of the common tongue.

On revelation of Reiner as the Armored Titan:

Isayama & Araki discuss the scene where Reiner is revealed as the Armored Titan. They want to make sure that the scene will be presented well, but also not via the same method as how they revealed the Female Titan's true identity.

On Levi's quotes:

Isayama talks aboutt Levi's recent quote, "I hate weaklings, because they die easily." He seems to be dissatisfied with the statement right now, because it's not quite in character for Levi. Since Kodansha didn't fix that line in the tankobon publication, he might discuss modifying the line with Araki when the time arrives to animate that scene.

Bessastsu Shonen also provides the initial sketches for the character designs of Mike Zacharius' men Lynne, Nanaba and Gelgar, who will make their debuts in season 2.
