Don't worry. In the next chapter the Emperor will finally start doing some serious damage when he takes another step forward. Following that we'll also get to see more "Oooh!", "Aaaah!" and "We're fucked, saved us Griffith!" shouts from the side characters (that will all be dead and RAEP'D within 5 chapters). Oh, and Griffith will put on his helm and lift his sword at the end of the chapter.
Srsly, can't wait for it. Shouldn't be longer than 8 months before it's out either.
