|— Hange lecturing Pastor Nick|
Hange Zoë ( ハンジ・ゾエ Hanji Zoe ?, besides translated as Hans Zoe ) is the 14th and current Commander ( 団長 Danchō ? ) of the Scout Regiment, once a section commander ( 分隊長 Bun-taichō ? ) in charge of the Fourth Squad, until the death of the 13th Commander – Erwin Smith – who named Hange as his successor curtly ahead. Hange conducts inquiry on Titans to the point of being obsessed with them. As a solution, they are deeply interest in Eren Jaeger and his ability to transform into a Titan .
Hange has wide, lightly embrown eyes and medium-length night brown hair that they frequently keep tied up in a gamey ponytail with bangs parted down the middle. During the Battle of Shiganshina, Hange ‘s left eye was badly damaged ; [ 10 ] as a result, they now wear a suit black eye temporary hookup with a thin strap to cover it. As a constantly busy person, their hair is thrown up very quickly which looks unkempt. [ 11 ] Hange wears square, thick-rimmed glasses that have bands strapped around their pass to keep them from dislodging during combat ; but when they are out of battle, they wears thin egg-shaped glasses, distillery keeping the bands on their heading most of the prison term. Hange is occasionally shown pulling their glasses up onto their frontal bone from time to prison term, frequently to indicate seriousness or wrath. They are much seen wearing the normal Scout Regiment uniform with a yellow button-down shirt underneath. When on missions or commercial enterprise, they wear a green Scout Regiment cloak .
Hange appears as an energetic and far-out scientist, with a singular way of conducting both themselves and their work. however, they are able to keep a flat head in parlous situations while making quick, upstanding decisions ; ordering those below them while simultaneously showing refer for their wellbeing and the success of the mission. Hange explains that they at foremost had a identical hateful affection when joining the Scout Regiment, but when they kicked the steer of a 3-meter Titan, they were shocked at how abnormally light it was. This drove them to take an extreme and outside-the-box approach to Titan research. Hange showed big compassion for their Titan test subjects, even crying when they were forced to put Beane in severe pain for an experiment. Hange developed relationships with the Titans, and when they were killed Hange had a complete meltdown. [ 12 ] Hange is a genius, using their brain for the benefit of humanness. As a drawing card, they excel and are able to easily figure out complex problems and create plans for the team to carry out. however, despite their cheeriness, in an consultation, Hajime Isayama said that he believes Hange to be the scariest quality when angry. This trait is heavily emphasized when Hange threatens to drop Pastor Nick off the boundary of Wall Sina for not giving them the information they requested. This change of character is frequently marked by Hange putting their glasses on top of their head, and their cheery nature can be seen returning when they put them back down. [ 9 ]
Hange is among the many surprise recruits introduce when Levi, Isabel Magnolia, and Furlan Church are introduced to the Scout Regiment as new recruits. Along with Moblit, Hange sky-high watches Levi demonstrate his omni-directional mobility gear skills during train, commenting on how individual skill and style weigh in on performance and outcomes in conflict. [ 13 ]
Hange is impatiently waiting to leave Trost District for the 49th expedition outside the Walls, wanting to capture a Titan to study. Hange tries to convince Levi and Miche Zacharius to help them capture one but they both dismiss them. After the expedition has begun, Hange attempts to convince the commanding officer, Erwin Smith, to authorize a Titan capture operation, but he refuses. They then take their frustration out on Oruo Bozad, telling him how crucial it is to study targets if they are going to win while choking him .
After this, Titans are sighted in the vicinity and as the Scouts organize themselves, Hange runs ahead and attempts to lead a Titan to the Walls. The Titan concisely chases Hange but on the spur of the moment changes class and runs to a spot in the woods. Hange follows it and tries to communicate with it, but the Titan does not pay attention. Taking advantage of the Titan ‘s beguilement, Oruo attempts a storm attack, but stops when Hange asks him to, and is caught by the Titan. however, Levi kills it and saves Oruo, much to Hange ‘s disappointment. Hange and the special Operations Squad then find a notebook and the cadaver of a Scout Regiment soldier named Ilse Langnar. Upon reading the notebook, Hange returns Ilse ‘s belongings to her parents and is able to convince Erwin to authorize capture operations. A short circuit while after, with the serve of the special Operations Squad, Hange is able to successfully capture Titans with no casualties. [ 14 ] Hange late appears leaving Trost District on another expedition with the Scout Regiment. [ 6 ] As Hange gleefully awaits the mission passing by the gate, they begin teasing Levi for the bombastic amount of flourish he is receiving from onlookers, stating that they hope to see an Abnormal Titan on the missions, and Levi retorts that Hange is an abnormal. After the Scout Regiment departs, Hange is following seen excitedly flying through an abandoned town using their omni-directional mobility gear. Hange grabs a Titan ‘s attention, promising that they will not hurt it, and when the Titan swings at them, Hange easily evades it and kills the Titan. [ 6 ] Hange and Miche are assigned to take Eren to his court learn in front of the leaders of the Military. They are stage with the rest of the Scout Regiment as Levi beats up Eren and checks on his condition after the court is over, noting that Eren ‘s lost tooth grew back. [ 2 ] former, when Eren and the special Operation Squad are at the erstwhile Scout Regiment Headquarters, Hange explains that they are in consign of experimenting with capture Titans Sawney and Beane and begins to prep Eren on previous experiments, but noting his exuberance to learn, ends up talking all night until dawn. They are then interrupted with news that Beane and Sawney were killed. Rushing to the web site, Hange cries at the personnel casualty of their Titans. [ 12 ] Hange later moves forth with their experiments on Eren. When it turns out that Eren can not turn into a Titan at will, Hange is a little dishearten. however, seeing Eren ‘s Titan hand late on causes Hange to react over-excitedly and breaks the tension between him and the extra Operations Squad. Hange excitedly runs to Eren and touches his Titan weapon, burning their hands on the debunk muscle. When they find a teaspoon being clutched by Eren ‘s Titan branch, Hange concludes that Eren ‘s Titan powers are entirely awaken when he has a clear objective in thinker, such as the here and now when he defended Mikasa and Armin from cannon fire. Hange besides hypothesizes that this switch over must have a dear reason american samoa well as being connected to the Titan ‘s nature. [ 15 ] During the 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, a Female Titan attacks the Scouts and decimates their ranks. After the Female Titan is lured into the Scouts ‘ ambush in a Forest of Giant Trees and captured, Hange jeeringly explains to it that the Special aim restraining weapon is designed thus that the more her wounds heal the more her joints will be immobilized. [ 7 ] When Eld Gin wonders why they were not told of the design to capture the Female Titan in the Forest of Giant Trees, he speculates that Erwin only told those who were in the regiment before the fall of Wall Maria to be sure they were not spies and that Hange is among those who were notified. [ 7 ] The Female Titan lets out a deafeningly forte bellow, leading numerous Titans begin to swarm the area and attack it. When they begin to devour her, Erwin orders all squads to engage the Titans and defend the Female to the death. Hange fights relentlessly among their comrades but to no avail. The Commander, realizing that all is lost, orders his soldiers to pull back and return to Calaneth District. [ 7 ] As they retreat from the afforest, Hange asks Erwin why he ordered Levi to resupply and split off from them. Erwin ask if Hange saw the Female Titan ‘s hustler get eaten along with the Titan itself, and Hange realizes with horror that their foe is hush alive. [ 7 ] During Annie Leonhart ‘s rampage through Stohess District, Hange again uses the especial target get weapons to halt her. After capturing Annie, Hange goes to the ground and holds their sword to Annie ‘s eye, telling her she is excessively far in to get Titans to devour and free her this meter. Hange then states that they will be the one to devour her and get all the information they can from her. Their taunts provoke Annie into lashing out, and Hange is forced to retreat to the rooftops as Annie breaks free. Hange laments that they did not have enough traps and orders their team to follow Annie. [ 16 ] As Eren enters the battle in his Titan form, Hange observes that he is retaining control of his Titan. Eren begins pursuing Annie and Hange orders their police squad to split up and work their way around over the buildings as the two combatants enter an open sphere of the zone. Moblit notes with panic that the two Titans might destroy the integral district, but Hange orders him to follow Erwin ‘s plan. Eren manages to immobilize Annie at the base of Wall Sina, where she encases herself in an dense crystal. Hange orders the crystal containing Annie to be moved to safety and worries for the future of the Scout Regiment after the failure of this mission. Annie is late brought deep metro and kept under the Scout Regiment ‘s hands. [ 17 ] While Scouts haul Annie ‘s crystal away, Hange stands by and assures she is secured with ropes and a tarpaulin. Noticing many of the Scouts are surprised by something, Hange runs over to see that there is a elephantine Titan within the hole in the Wall made by the Female Titan ‘s attempted escape. Moblit asks them for orders, but Hange stares in shock, wondering how the Titan could be there and if it was just coincidence or if all the Walls are filled with them. Hange ‘s thoughts are then interrupted when Pastor Nick slaps his hand on their shoulder and tells them not to let the sunlight touch the Titan. [ 9 ] At Nick ‘s guidance, they climb on top of the Wall and Hange has the Titan covered with a makeshift tarpaulin. Hange begins questioning Nick on why the Titan is in the Wall and why he had kept quiet about it. however, Nick dodges their questions by blaming the Scout Regiment for the current situation and, saying that he has business to do, requests to be let down from the Wall. Hange then becomes angered and grab Nick ’ second shirt, holding him over the edge of the Wall and telling their police squad to stay back. They lament about the morals of the Scout Regiment and their desire to take back freedom, demanding that Nick talk. When he refuses, Hange moves to drop him off the edge, but Nick stops struggling and claims that his life is not worth revealing his information. He begs God to deliver him. After a brief hesitation, Hange throws him back onto the Wall and sits on the edge, claiming it was all a joke. Hange sedately asks Nick if all the Walls are filled with Titans, shaking. Moblit approaches them and Hange expresses their concern of the nameless, claiming not to have felt this manner since their first time outside the Walls. [ 9 ] Following the news that Wall Rose has been breached, the Scouts prepare for their travel from Stohess to Ehrmich District. Ignoring how near they are to departure time, Hange studies something under a microscope until Levi comes to retrieve them. They join him in a wagon along with Pastor Nick, Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. Though Armin is surprised to see a priest from the order of the Walls, Hange brushes his presence off with a joke. More badly, Hange explains that Nick is coming with them to witness reality, to see if that changes his unwillingness to speak. Hange speculates that what Nick knows could be more authoritative than the destine of humanity and that is the reason for his silence. [ 18 ] Levi notices the shard Hange is holding and asks about it, prompting an explanation that it is a enured bark fragment that remained behind flush after Annie exited the Female Titan. It did not evaporate or disappear, so Hange compared it to a assemble of the Wall. Hange discovered that their compositions were about identical. The Walls must be made of humongous Titans and their surface is constructed with hardened Titan skin. [ 19 ] Hange points out that plugging the rupture in Wall Rose would be unmanageable without the right-sized boulder, but Eren as a Titan might be able to use the Titans ‘ hardening ability to seal the hole in the Wall. Armin adds that they could besides use that ability to seal Wall Maria, and then there would be no want to lay issue lines down to Shiganshina. They could go at night while the Titans are inactive. Hange considers and agrees that if the group was small adequate they could sneak all the way there. [ 19 ] In Ehrmich, Hange takes lineage of their position and prepares their team for departure. When Levi brings Nick to them, after showing him all the refugees, Hange asks if he has had a change of heart. Nick is clearly distressed, but can not tell them anything, saying that it is excessively capital a decision for a individual person. however, he can give them a mention of a person the Order was instructed to monitor. She joined the Scout Regiment this year and she may know truths they are unaware of. however, the girl is presently on the movement lines with most of the 104th. [ 19 ] Sasha interrupts to hand Hange a message, [ 19 ] which turns out to be a report card on Annie Leonhart ‘s background. According to the reputation, there are two other members of the 104th who came from the lapp area as her ; Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover. During the 57th Exterior Scouting Mission, their unit of measurement in the long-range scout geological formation was given fake information that said Eren was in the right fly, which is where the Female Titan attacked. [ 20 ] The members of the 104th are reluctant to suspect Reiner and Bertholdt, so Hange presses them for information regarding their behavior and any contact they might have had with Annie. Armin finally realizes that Reiner had both the opportunity to learn Eren ‘s true location in the formation and excrete it on to Annie. Hange decides that when they next come in contact with the pair, the Scouts should act normally until the opportunity comes to lead them underground and confine them. [ 20 ] Hange takes a squad with them to rescue Christa Lenz and leads the Scouts to Utgard Castle, where there is a loom they can use to assess the Wall. [ 19 ] Their police squad arrives at dawn, just in time to rescue the cadets from the 104th, who had been trapped in the castle by Titans. [ 21 ] Hange has everyone reorganize on Wall Rose, where Ymir is pulled up on a stretcher. interim Christa speaks to Hange on Ymir ‘s behalf, explaining that Ymir had transformed into a Titan to save them. Hange hears her out and says that despite Ymir ‘s prior secrecy, the information she holds could be a treasure for humanity thus Hange hopes they will get along. [ 20 ] Hange besides asks about Christa ‘s veridical name, if Historia Reiss is related to the Reiss noble family. Christa confirms that is true, and seeing her gloomy, Hange places a hand on her shoulder and tells her that it is nice to meet Historia. [ 20 ] The Garrison ‘s progress team arrives and Hannes informs the Scouts that there is no hole in the Wall, at least not between Trost and Krolva Districts. With no Titans around, despite the former sightings, Hange prepares for the Scouts to fall back to Trost and begins discussing alternative methods of Titan entrance with Moblit, but soon recognizes that Eren has fallen behind, talking to Reiner and Bertholdt. shortly after, the two of them are attacked by Mikasa and they transform into the Armored and Colossal Titans in an try to kidnap Eren. [ 20 ] Eren transforms into his Titan class and fights with Reiner at the bottom of the Wall, leaving Hange and the stay of the Scouts to face the Colossal Titan on top. Hange orders the Scouts to swarm him, but the Colossal emits a giant burst of scalding steam, forcing them back ; this fourth dimension, however, he does not disappear. Hange orders three of the four squads award to watch Bertholdt so they can kill him when he comes out. capture is no longer an choice. Hange takes the last police squad along with them to chase the Armored Titan. [ 22 ] Hange lands on Eren ‘s shoulder to ask him if he can break one of Reiner ‘s stage with one of his grappling attacks to buy him time to escape. Eren nods in agreement, to Hange ‘s astonishment and delight. Hange theorizes that the Armored Titan ‘s body can not be entirely hard like stone because he is able to move excessively quickly. Rather like armor in the past, there must be points where the joints are not protected to allow for movement. Mikasa uses this cognition to cut through the backs of Reiner ‘s knees, giving Eren an advantage in his fight. [ 22 ] Weakened, Reiner roars to signal the Colossal Titan to fall on both him and Eren. [ 22 ] Hange and the other soldiers nearby are badly wounded from the plosion caused by the Colossal Titan ‘s land and are unable to pursue Reiner and Bertholdt when they escape with a capture Eren and Ymir. Later that like day, Erwin arrives with reinforcements and the lifts necessary to move the horses over the Wall for a rescue mission. Hange rouses themselves and asks for a map. [ 23 ] Hange uses the map to point out a colossus afforest to the gathered Scouts. evening though Reiner and Bertholdt can change into Titans, Hange suspects that other Titans will even be a threat to them. After all that fighting they must be exhausted and they will need a safe and impregnable place to rest before attempting to absconding past Wall Maria, but warns the Scouts they alone have until nightfall when the early Titans can not move. If the Scouts can get there earlier then, they might make it in clock time to rescue Eren. [ 23 ] After the rescue party leaves, Hange crawls away and asks for a horse even though they are unable to stand, but despite that still wants to go to Ragako to investigate the Titan that can not walk. Seeing Hange ‘s determination, Moblit decides to go himself and tells them to rest. [ 24 ] Some days later, Hange reports to Erwin binding in Trost District, bringing Conny with them to confirm the findings in Ragako. Hange hypothesizes that the Titans fought within Wall Rose were citizens from there. Levi sours at the intend that he could have been killing humans this entire clock, but Hange offers him some comfort in that there is however no solid proof of that. [ 25 ] Hange is later seen performing experiments on Eren ‘s Titan shape. After repeat transformations, Eren ‘s Titan increasingly becomes weaker and more deform, until it finally collapses. Hange and Mikasa try to free him from the Titan, but find that his soundbox has begun to fuse to it. As Hange attempts to pull Eren free, they arrange Moblit to make a cartoon of it. Mikasa cuts Eren free, and Hange declares the experiment to be over .
soon after, Hange receives word from Moblit that Nick has been murdered. immediately leery, Hange goes to the crime view and interrogates the two members of the Military Police guarding the web site, claiming to be an erstwhile friend of the victim. Upon observing Nick ‘s cadaver, Hange is able to note tell-tale signs of torture on him, and wounds on one officer ‘s hands that suggest he took separate in the beat. Pretending to believe the official story that Nick was killed in a looting, Hange tells the policemen that Nick will be avenged once they find the culprits. Hange travels to the bungalow where Levi ‘s team is staying to inform them of Nick ‘s murder. once recounting the wide narrative is done, Nifa arrives with a letter for Levi from Erwin, which prompts Levi to have everyone evacuate the premises. After evacuating, Levi informs the group that the government has frozen all Scout Regiment activity, and that they have been ordered to turn over Eren and Historia. Upon besides learning from Nifa that Erwin has been arrested, Levi decides to smuggle Eren and Historia into Trost to keep them out of the government ‘s hands, and Hange agrees to lend him Abel, Keiji, and Nifa to help, while Hange themselves and Moblit go to aide Erwin in the capitol. [ 26 ] Arriving at the Scout Regiment ‘s barracks, Hange and Moblit wait until the Military Police have departed to speak with Erwin. Hange informs Erwin of Eren ‘s capture, and tells him their theory that Rod Reiss is planning on eating Eren to steal his Titan ability. Afterward, Hange and Moblit regroup with Levi ‘s team, who have apprehended Sannes and Ralph. Hange and Levi take turns torturing Sannes, who refuses to talk. After more torture merely results in Sannes begging that they kill him, Hange and Levi leave and pull Ralph, at knife-point, to read a handwriting outside Sannes ‘s doorway, making him believe he has been betrayed and is considered a lunatic by his comrades. This causes the man to break, revealing to Hange the unavowed of the Reiss family—the true rulers of world. [ 27 ] After Sannes ‘ confession, Hange mocks him at length, revealing the truth about Ralph ‘s apparent treachery. Sannes is deeply shaken, but he warns Hange that person else will take his place and wishes them luck. visibly shaken, Hange leaves the dungeon and enters a room, violently kicking over a board. Levi walks in on their effusion, and has Hange fill the rest of his police squad in on their theory that Eren will soon be eaten. Hange and Moblit travel to visit Erwin again, bringing news of the Reiss family ‘s genuine condition. Erwin gives them the results of his probe into the Reiss family ‘s property, but before they can continue, Erwin receives word that he has been accused of organizing a murder. He orders Hange and Moblit to leave immediately, and names Hange acting commanding officer of the Scout Regiment in his absence. [ 28 ] Afterwards, Hange discovers Flegel being pursued by the Military Police, and carries him to guard. There, they learn what very happened to his church father and attempts to persuade him to continue fighting in his founder ‘s stead. When he states they have already lost, Hange reminds him with a smile that the Scouts have always had a lose phonograph record .
Using Flegel as bait, Hange lures three military Policemen into a trap, tricking them into admitting that the MPs murdered Flegel ‘s church father. Hange and Moblit come to his help, easily dispatching the three soldiers, and revealing that the “ abandoned ” buildings of Trost are actually fully of citizens who have heard the police admit to framing the Scout Regiment. [ 29 ] Hange and Moblit find Levi and his squad while they are interrogating a penis of the Military Police, informing them that the military ‘s coup d’etat has been a achiever, far telling them that the royal capital and the administrative zone are immediately under Premier Zachary ‘s master and that there has been no counter-rebellion so far .
Although his team celebrates, Levi points out that they still do not have any leads on Eren and Historia, but Hange claims that they may have the answer to their predicament, revealing Erwin ‘s report of his probe into the Reiss family and explaining that the Reiss kin was attacked and slaughtered on the day of Wall Maria ‘s breach, with Rod being the only survivor. Hange takes particular note of the fact that the chapel service the family had been praying in when they were killed was besides decimated, and that Rod used his own fortune to have it rebuilt in the follow years. Deducing that the chapel service must be important to him, Hange theorizes that it is where he is hiding out. [ 30 ] Hange, Levi, and his squad arrive at the Reiss chapel service, finding the hide doorway to the caves below. While the home MPs await them inside for an ambush, the Scout Regiment charges to open the door to the cave and roll in respective boast canisters tied to barrels. They then charge in behind as Sasha uses flaming arrows to create a fastball cloud, and Armin fires flares to obscure them. During the conflict, one of Kenny ‘s subordinates fires a hook into Hange ‘s right shoulder, throwing them into a Wall. Hange then crashes down on the floor. [ 31 ] As Rod Reiss transforms into a Titan, causing the cavern to collapse, Levi orders Moblit and Armin to take Hange to guard while the rest of his police squad saves Eren.

After Squad Levi escapes the Reiss caves, they begin pursuing Rod, with Hange riding in a police van due to their wounds. Hange notes that they now know that only people of the Reiss lineage can use the Founding Titan ‘s true power, and that if any Reiss penis does get the office that they will be controlled by the political orientation of the First King and will not free world. As it is decided that they will have to kill Rod Reiss, Hange asks Historia if she is truly approve with it. [ 32 ] Arriving in Orvud, the Garrison members stationed in the district are appalled to hear that the Scouts do not want to evacuate the zone, and Hange explains that the Titan is being attracted to the large populace, which is why they want to keep them in Orvud so they can direct where the Titan goes. As a stand-in plan in the event that the Garrison is unsuccessful in destroying Rod ‘s Titan, Erwin has Hange and Moblit bring gunpowder, ropes, and a net, to Erwin while the Garrison tries to kill Rod with the wall ‘s cannons. As Rod ‘s Titan climbs up onto the Wall and kneels in front of it, Eren transforms and grabs the catch of gunpowder Hange brought, and uses it to blow aside Rod ‘s head. [ 33 ] Following the battle in Orvud, Hange attends Historia ‘s coronation as queen of the Walls. [ 34 ]
Two months after Historia ‘s coronation, Hange is actively engaged in running tests on Eren ‘s Titan harden ability in preparation for their travel to Wall Maria. Hange is seen in Trost District observation as a soldier lures a Titan into Hange ‘s own invention which appears to be a Titan guillotine. As it crushes and kills a Titan, Hange and Moblit cheer and wallow in the success of the invention. Hange states that they can run these all day without the want for soldiers fighting Titans or using cannons and other resources, gleefully turning to Eren and informing him that they can mass produce these and put them in every Wall city, but is interrupted upon seeing Levi handing Eren a handkerchief for a nosebleed he has. Levi points out that Eren ‘s body probably has a limit for what it can do, and Hange apologizes to Eren. Hange accompanies Eren to inquire with Commandant Sadies about his interest with Dr. Jaeger. After listening to Keith ‘s narrative, Hange become irritated. Deducing that he retired to the educate camp out of feelings of obligation and inferiority to others, Hange claims that he ran aside for a childish reason and tells him not to bring his feelings of inferiority into this matter. [ 35 ] Hange is by and by award at a military meet headed by Dhalis Zachary. After the meet ends, Hange meets with the officials in another room, where they are questioned about the contents of the bottle taken from Rod ‘s bag. Hange states that it is made from spinal anesthesia fluid thanks to Eren and Historia, but claims that since it evaporates adenine soon as it touches air it is hard to research. Noting that this stuff is army for the liberation of rwanda beyond their capabilities, Hange questions what the Reiss kin did if they created it .
Hange participates in a meet of a few Scout Regiment members in which they explain to Erwin all the information Keith gave to them and Squad Levi. Erwin and Hange speculate that Grisha may have wanted to help humanness but was unable to, and ponder what is in the basement of his house in Shiganshina. Hange is later seen in the dine hall, appalled at the soldiers ‘ contend over the food. The day of the operation, all soldiers are ready at dawn. Hange and other high-level soldiers exchange salutes with elect members of the other branches and then head to the Wall. however, the soldiers are surprised to see that the civilians know of the operation ‘s goals and begin to cheer for the regiment. Although Hange and Levi are initially annoyed that word of their passing has spread, they are silenced by the spy of Erwin ; ecstatic to have such flourish for the regiment, cheering along with the civilians. [ 36 ] On the way to Shiganshina, the soldiers come across a Titan near dawn. When the group illuminates the Titan, Hange concisely observes it, and orders them to leave it alone as it is shutting down ascribable to lack of sunlight. Reaching Shiganshina, Erwin orders the scouts to switch to ODM gear. As Hange and Levi each fire off a signal flare, the two mention how odd it is that they have not seen a unmarried Titan and that they are probably playing into the enemies ‘ hands. After Eren succeeds in sealing the out hole in Wall Maria, Hange ‘s squad begins moving to the second gear gate to finish sealing the hole. Seeing a signal flare from Erwin, Hange orders their team to take up positions atop Wall Maria. It is from there that they witness the sudden appearance of Reiner Braun, followed by the Beast Titan and his army. [ 37 ] On Erwin ‘s orders, all the soldiers deploy. Squad Levi, without Levi himself, and team Hange deploy to take down the Armored Titan. Eren transforms and draws Reiner into a fight, while Hange and the soldiers under them prepare to fight Reiner with their modern weapons .
As Eren engages Reiner, Hange ‘s police squad begins positioning around the two. Eren maneuvers Reiner into a blemish where he can be attacked, and Hange and Mikasa hyphen in and take out his eyes with their spears, as other soldiers strike his nape. Hange then orders another round of spears to be used on his nape. [ 38 ] Hange orders another round of spears to be prepared for a third attack, but as the squads are preparing they are caught off guard duty by a loud roar from Reiner ‘s Titan. Hange orders that they hit him again, but Armin points out a barrel that has precisely been thrown into the district. Fearing an attack, Hange orders their forces to fall spinal column to a safe distance. once at a safe distance, Hange observes the barrel as it descends into the district. Seeing Bertholdt issue from the barrel, Hange attempts to go to attack him but Armin goes ahead of them, insisting that they try reasoning with him first. Hange and Moblit observe Armin ‘s attack to rationality with Bertholdt from afar and when negotiations break down, Hange orders the respite of their team to finish off Reiner while they and Moblit pursue Bertholdt. however, Hange realizes excessively belated that he is preparing to transform and both they and Moblit are caught in the result explosion. numerous soldiers are uncertain if Hange survived. [ 39 ] When trying to think of a way to defeat the Colossal Titan, Armin recalls Hange stating that the Colossal was susceptible to drawn-out battles. He thinks back to Hange ‘s experiments with Eren, and recalls when they led a squad fighting Bertholdt on acme of Wall Rose, realizing that he must consume flesh to make steam and finally will run out and be ineffective to move as a skeleton. Hange resurfaces in the struggle after recovering from the explosion. however fluid, they aid Squad Levi as they attempt to fight the Armored Titan by using their end boom Spear to help blow apart its chew the fat. This opens Reiner ‘s sass, allowing Mikasa to shoot her Thunder Spear inside and blow him out of his Titan ‘s nape. [ 40 ] Hange interrogates Reiner about a case he had on his person, and Reiner claims it is a letter from Ymir to Historia, which Hange agrees to deliver. When Reiner refuses to give any other information, Hange prepares to kill him but is halted by Jean, who recommends they feed Reiner to person injected with the Titan serum. Hange insists they must kill him immediately, but Jean continues to press the national until Hange sends Mikasa to retrieve the serum, telling her to shoot a flare if she can not, so Hange will know to kill Reiner. good as Mikasa fires her flare, Zeke and the Cart Titan appear behind Hange and attempt to kill them. Jean is able to tackle Hange out of the way, but the two manage to retrieve Reiner and hideaway with him. jean curses his decision to intervene, but Hange again reminds him that this was their option. Hange arrives with Levi ‘s team to see Eren ‘s group, but finds Mikasa attempting to steal the Titan injection from Levi so that she can use it to save Armin, despite Levi ‘s option to save Erwin. Hange apprehends Mikasa, holding her spinal column as Levi prepares the injection for Erwin. Hange tries to convince her that world needs Erwin to be saved, explaining that they placid require Erwin ‘s leadership .
Hange tells Mikasa that they besides wish to bring back people, and tells Mikasa that everyone has to say adieu someday, insisting that they must move forward. Levi decides to move forward with saving Erwin and Hange takes Mikasa and clears the ceiling with everyone else. however, when Levi regroups with them, he returns with Erwin, having chosen to save Armin. He swears to Erwin that he will kill the Beast Titan, but Hange notes that Erwin has already died. [ 10 ] After Armin awakens atop the Wall, Hange and the others regroup around him and go over the site from the past four hours and the former struggle.

Kiyomi suggests bringing the flying boat to an island off Marley ‘s seashore, Odiha, where it can be serviced quick, which the group agrees to. Hange brings news of the new design to Mikasa before engaging the Jaegerists themselves, helping to distract them as the Azumabitos go to the embark. however, Hange turns their attention to the Jaegerists reinforcements arriving by caravan and is baffled when it is derailed. Once the transport is ready to leave, Hange helps an injured Pieck board it before the group departs. once on the gravy boat, Hange and Kiyomi reveal to the group that they will be heading to Odiha alternatively of Liberio, much to the Warriors ‘ straiten. Hange besides states that Liberio can not be saved anymore which prompts Annie to try and leave the group, and Hange attempts to talk her gloomy by reminding her that there are more lives at post than barely Marley and Liberio.
