How many of you were sure Bertolt would be fine?
I would bet on him living instead of Reiner.
BR flashback next chapter?
I have to agree with you. There's no explanation how he is alive. It is like Isayama changed his mind in a month, he could left Armin pretty injured but at least we could explain why he is still breathing.
I can't believe in a previous thread people were actually willing to abuse sweet little Levi. How could anybody do that to a child? Especially Levi.
He is an special boy, with an unique mind, someone who thinks different. I like difference. Who would believe a boy like him is able to suggest tough solutions? He is underestimated and Levi doesn't consider him value.
I still expect more, but I can see Isayama getting it over with quickly so he can focus even more on Armin. He seems to dedicate tons of chapters to him so he's probably one of his faves.
Kuchel a cute.
Lolivi is too.
Baby shingekis are too cute to be mean to.
He just has the type of character and looks that call for intense bullying. It's fictional so there's noo need to fight it, recently even Isayama has given in to it.
He was certainly a mommy's boy, I'm sure. I hope there's an OVA or something where his time with Kenny is expanded on, and also how he met Farlan. Levi is the type of person who doesn't trust people easily, so he really has to make a connection. He clearly thought a great deal of Farlan.
She must have been a fantastic mother and tried her best. It's so sad to think that Levi was all alone for quite some time with his mother's corpse.
I do believe he will survive. I keep praying for it all the same and have everything crossed that he will. He is the best candidate for the serum.
All baby shingekis deserve love. It's terrible to think that anyone would be mean to them.
He doesn't deserve to be bullied at all! Especially he was a little boy and couldn't take care of himself.
They need to be cared for when they get lost.
D-don't bully the manlet
Exactly! There were some really horrid people in the last thread who really wanted to abuse little Levi.
Poor little thing.
I am quite fond of Levi and prefer to ship him with women rather than with men. I don't think he's gay. He's extremely loyal to his friends. Erwin is just that. His friend.
Yes. I also ship him with Nifa.
Armin should be the one to die. Or he should live through some other means. Erwin has to live. All signs point to him being the best decision, both as far as strategy is concerned, his connections and experience, as well as the fact that Levi has a right to be 'selfish' and save his friend.
LP and LH? I still don't really undersand what qualifies as real shipping, if you want them to end uptogether for real, enjoy the porn or like the interactions?
You say that, yet you keep posting these.
Abuse Anons are absolutely horrible.
We don't actually know her age, but she has been around long enough to become a senior member of the Garrison. I would say she's at least in her late 20's or early 30's. She might be a little older than Erwin, but even in official artwork she doesn't look "old"
Levi lost so many people. His mother, uncle, Isabel and Farlan, Nifa, his old squad and uncountable comrades. I'd honestly feel bad for him if Erwin dies because he's one of the last close friends he has left (beside Hanji)
I know EM have lost a lot too, so I can sympathize with them, but I think he has the right to be selfish about this too.
Rico you are so smart!
Ian wrote me a letter and told me that you have hemorrhoids, you're lacking good form lately.Blessed be!
Absolutely not true!
I'm hoping it'll go away.
They would've made a cute couple. When he started opening up to her I thought Isayama was going to devastate the fujos and hint to some romantic feelings between them. Oh well.
Was that confirmed? I know he finds her annoying but I always got the impression they were buddies that liked to piss each other off now and again.
True, but after Erwin kicks it, that might change.
What on earth are you talking to yourself for? Should you wish to talk, you need only ask.
You are an imposter with bad intentions.
You wanna make fun of my hemorrhoids too?
You're not very good at driving people away, are you?
Although, for all your talk of giving people attention and how much you hate me, you're doing a sterling job at being hypocrites.
Terrible of those Anon's. Good form Rico!
I hope your hemorrhoids heal soon.
They definitely are. Those who have a loyal Ackerman are some of the most fortunate people around.
He is not.
They are horrible indeed! Regarding ages, I've always put Erwin in his early thirties. Somewhere, and I can't remember where, I read that Erwin was 32 and Levi was 34. I know their ages aren't confirmed, apart from that Levi is older than 30, but they seem reasonable ages for the two of them. I also like the idea of Erwin being a little younger than Levi, even though those couple of years difference barely pose any changes in maturity at the age they are.
It takes so much for Levi to open up to people. Some of the most touching scenes where when Erwin and Levi were relaxing in each other's company. Even the immature toilet jokes were sweet. If Erwin dies, it will be a devastating loss for Levi.
Erm... none of them. Stop being wicked.
I hope her hemorrhoids heals quickly too :(
Rude and uncalled for.
Pretending to be me is lack of good form, looks like you weren't blessed enough by the Wholy Trinity.
Ian told me that I should have Zackley take a look.
I had no idea that Levi was supposed to be older than Erwin! Do you have any idea where you read that? I would love to check it out.
Blessed be, Anon.
According to this Erwin is in his late thirties.
Exactly, I don;t get why other anons are pretending to be you. Nevertheless, stick to your good form.
Still a bit lacking in the impersonation skills.
I found this very nice picture of Rico yesterday, She looks so relaxed without her glasses on, the colors are indeed very nice. Ian will love it.
Please stop! It's very rude to pretend to be us. The Wholy Trinity are judging you.
This is the website I believe. I forgot that it's a roleplay profile that someone has done, but I do really like the idea of him being 32. It probably doesn't stand so well against the canon material though. I can't find the Levi profile. http://shingekinohetalia.proboards.com/thread/35/commander-erwin-smith-complete
That's interesting. In that case Mike, who I believe is older than Erwin, would be around 40.
Levi is said to be 'surprisingly old'. He does have a baby face, if you will. Erwin looks more mature, though he is still a young man.
Thanks a bunch Mrs Smith, I'll be sure to read this later. Sorry about the weird Impersonator/Cyber Stalker that's trailing me. They'll give up soon enough and we can go back to friendly posting.
I thought Isayama said he could handle his liquor surprisingly well? Well, I suppose if he can't get drunk he probably wouldn't have fun drinking.
Isayama reveals bits of information in interviews and autograph signings. For some reason he said he's keeping Levi's age a secret because it's somehow plot relevant. Don't ask me out because I have no idea.
That's a great picture. It's very nice of them to walk you to Zackley for a checkup.
That's pretty cute. Hopefully the novelty will wear off for them soon.
Attempted shock tactics?
Gross and base.
Fingers and toes crossed!
Well what if Jean was a girl too?
His dad is important confirmed.
How did the visit to Zackley go?
I still think his father is Rod. He's the type of guy who'd sleep with a prostitute and he was a manlet. I know making Levi half Reiss would only make him more of a special snowflake but I don't know, I just like the thought of him and Historia being half-siblings.
Elen is cute though
He looks better here.
Which boy would make the prettiest girl?
I like this. Historia is already set to be his next favourite blonde.
>adopt the child of that woman he keeps on his mind
I think that Levi would like the idea of having a little sister. Historia would probably use him as a punching bag at times but he'd stand there and take it, finding it endearing and amusing.
>shy and devoted personality
Reminder that we don't know the age of consent in shingekiworld, it's fictional anway and it's really nice.
I swear to christ Isayama better show us. I hate when authors contrive a big mystery and never reveal the truth. It's not creative or clever at all.
He's probably the same guy who always calls it disgusting. I wouldn't call branched off family members incest though. They're likely distant cousins.
>Levi says both Erwin and Eren are needed for humanity to stand a chance
>Levi chooses Erwin to save
>Eren will resent him
>Eren will bargain with Zeke to save Armin
>Zeke does so under certain conditions
>Eren must go with the warriors in exchange
>SL loses Eren
That's what Erwin gets for being so tall!
What a cutie!
Pls no. I like their interactions but seeing them together romantically freaks me out.
I like their dynamic in general. Don't care if it isn't romantic. I thought it was funny when we learned she had a crush on Keith. Think Isayama secretly enjoys sinking ships?
Maybe with a shifter as an experiment.
>Burt is save last minit
>Roiner is OK too
>so is apetits whatshisname
>plot doesn't move on as usual
A shame, but I'm already statisfied with hot pants Reiner and stumpbert being manhandled.
Kek. I agree. It's time to say goodbye.
I wish that this would just happen instead.
Why did I have to search this?
Only two weeks left till spoiler week get hypedddd
I'm crossing everything! I'm keeping everything crossed! Everyone else needs to do the same too!
IF he gets the Serum, which I hope he does, I wonder what his Titan form would look like?
I haven't seen much fan art that I like very much.
I would however like to see Titan Eren and Titan Erwin sparring so that Erwin can get used to his Titan body.
>His story has already been told.
True, but he has always had to fight his foes in the form of a human. He would assuredly relish the chance to destroy Titans as thoroughly as they destroy the men and women of the scouts. He fights and lives to bring meaning to the dead, but becoming a Titan would allow him to avenge them as well.
>The possibilities are Armin surviving and Erwin living enough to reach the basement or both dying.
Quite blinkered if you were to ask me, but if that's what you believe then by all means do so.
I've never liked the idea of a character being somehow fit to die because their 'story has already been told'. As far as I'm concerned there's always potential for development. Erwin being a titan would be incredible and exciting. Levi choosing to save his friend over Armin would perhaps lead to Eren breaking away from the SC, which would be a fascinating development.
I agree completely. It would also be very interesting to see Erwin, who we have always seen as knowledgeable and experienced coming to terms with how to control and utilise his new titan form.
I don't hate Historia. She's just not my favourite. I really don't know what you're getting at here.
Yes! He has to be saved. He's the absolute best choice for Humanity!
what an asshole
So he only considers Erwin as a friend?
Nah Levi should inject the serum to himself and Mikasa. It would be more interesting to see how Ackermans deal with new found strength and changes in their personality. I think removal of Erwin and Armin would actually help Levi and Eren to free from their emotional baggage.
Stop that! It's treason! He is her Commander!
Why she is not your favourite? I mean among all the characters she alongside Levi is most developed unlike Erwin whose characterized is solely based on to know the truth behind titan's power and nothing else.
I've never liked the idea of someone dying to develop other characters. That's what are you saying: Eren will leave if Armin dies and will have a development, that's really stupid to me.
There's not other reason for Erwin living than to reach the basement and Isayama will left him live enough for that.
>Eren will leave if Armin dies and will have a developmen
This. And that wouldn't even be development but throwing a big tantrum. The same if Mikasa gets violent with Manlet. It actually would be interesting if their behavior bites them at the end. But that would mean shitting on their plot armor and I doubt Isayama is going to dare.
Don't worry, she's going to tell Eren to stand down.
I think that Eren is going to leave anyway. Levi is going to give Erwin the serum and him doing this does not necessarily mean that Armin has to die. Eren might well take Armin with him.
Erwin does have potential after this. Of course I think it's right that he sees what is in the basement, but if he gets the serum there is so much that can be done with him after that.
People can have their favourites for whatever reason. Erwin is my favourite. Historia is not.
I am worry about you, anon. I would like it to happen, but there is no way that's going to happen in this story. That would be too much a good development for Mikasa. And we all know her only development will be "muh tattoo".
Eren is not touching Levi for Mikasa to tell him to move away. She is grabbing her sword but that doesn't mean she will attack someone. You should know Isayama and his drama at the end of a chapter.
I had another dream where Zeke was Eren's brother and after Eren visited the warrior village he met Zeke's daughter who was basically a female version of Armin, a qt with round glasses and really bok smart. She ended up being like the ChiChi of the series by having married Eren and everyone got butthurt because he's technically her uncle but they had an adorable daughteru.
I think it's going to reflect when she told Armin to remain calm, that when things go wrong it isn't the right time to be emotional.
Neither of us knows for sure however. All good things in due time.
>Eren is not touching Levi
He's practically on top of him.
>She is grabbing her sword but that doesn't mean she will attack someone.
A threat isn't an attack.
Which could be one of the reasons that pushes him towards following Zeke.
Come on. Armin has not chances to die without the serum, he has minutes. Erwin could have 30 minutes and that will be enough for them to carry him to the basement. If Armin was close to the ocean, I would like his friends to carry him to there but that's not the case.
You are making assumptions by your preferences but you can be sure Levi is going to choose Erwin because we haven't see the entire conversation and his thoughts yet.
So Levi would choose a kid, who he barely knows, over his close friend, a man who he clearly admires a great deal? Imagine if you were in a position where you had to choose between your friend and a kid you've known for a short period of time. Despite knowing the strategic values each has, you have a right to be selfish, because it's what humans do. Why shoudn't Levi save his friend?
>I think that Eren is going to leave anyway. Levi is going to give Erwin the serum and him doing this does not necessarily mean that Armin has to die. Eren might well take Armin with him.
This. Eren will go to Zeke for help. This is a setup for Eren to leave willingly leave with the warriors.
I will remember my friends desires and also will think of how value this child is but maybe Erwin will tell him to save Armin instead of him. He has no other motivations to survive than the basement.
Something else, Armin and Eren defeated Bertolt and Levi will also need to think of that. The serum is his but they have Bertolt because of Armin.
Why people think the life of a child has more value than the life of a man? I am curious about this because I have seen this setting in many stories in television, films and books, and actually pisses me off. And most often if an adult survives instead of a child, the character is satanized like no tomorrow, or the character bashes himself for surviving.
Exactly. In a time of desperation too, it would make sense to pick the person who serves a greater purpose and can bring more to the table in the present. Armin might have been the better decision in the future, if he had the experience that Erwin has, but he doesn't. Erwin is the best choice for now, which will contribute a great deal towards Humanity's victory.
It is sad though. Erwin living is going to gather him a great deal of hate, likely from the same people who consider him to be evil incarnate.
Armin better die than live. It's not like he can properly function as a normal human being after that body burn even if he gets the serum. Erwin should also die because his development is over. Just go to the basement and then hand over the leadership to Hange. Levi can keep the serum for now.
>still two more weeks until Armin/Erwin and Bert die
I am not saying Armin's life is more important but Levi also needs to take him into consideration. Levi said only Erwin and Eren's life is value and that's unjust because it was for Hange that Reiner was defeated and is because of Armin they have Bertolt.
That anon is saying Erwin needs to be saved because he's the last friend Levi has and that's also unjust.
I wasn't trying to distort your comment or the anon's one, but I was just actually remembering seeing this conflict in other sources, so I was curious about people who think being a child is a requirement to survive instead of someone older.
He got the serum as a kid but he lost his arm and leg before he transforms. That's a good point but I don't think Isayama will leave Armin with his entire body burnt. I will prefer him dead before that.
If Eren leaves because of Armin, he will be a traitor. I don't think that could happen but instead, he will leave after he knows what's in the basement. He may feel confused on who is telling the truth and will feel the need to find it.
>Petra loved Oluo
Any canon proof? Because non-canon stuff shows that she wanted manlet
True. I like the idea of that. But I figure he may go to Zeke in hopes of him saving Armin. That's really just the first step. Basement will for sure determine his decision, so long as there's a guarantee that the humans in the walls won't be wiped out.
not grown as big as Reiner's big bara titties I assume and that's why I'm leaving you for him. Peace out.
I don't know how or why, but I think Armin has latent Titan powers.
There's no way in hell you survive a 50 meter fall + massive 3rd-degree burns covering your entire body. 50 meter fall alone is instant death.
I guess it's not impossible. The Arlert's were a little shifty with their illegal books and we don't know anything about his parents, just that they were going to visit the outside world (or was that an anime-only thing? I can't recall.)
But I'm not getting my hopes up for a logical explanation to Armin's survival. Probably plot armor saved him.
You still going with that shit?
you poor deluded fool
I like Armin and I see that impossible. His grandparent had that book but maybe he just stole it or something. Erwin's father also had information. They were just special people who had curiosity.
He's right though, Arminfags easily surpassed Ymirfags when it comes to retarded theories lately
>Armin has titan powers
>Armin is a Reiss
>Armin's parents hold the key to the story!
>Armin will become commander at age 15!
And so on.
I can't think of any other time the writing was more bullshit than Armin being alive
At least Reiner has his titan powers for his bullshit
Because anyone that thinks Annie might switch sides after everything humans did to her has no grasp on her character whatsoever. I could understand if it was Eren maybe, considering she could have had a crush on him, but Armin is the one who manipulated her into blowing her cover. Don't get me started with the retarded theories with Armin switching sides and all this shit.
If any Anniefags that think this way exist, then I'm convinced they were hit with a bat when they came out of the womb so they have permanent brain damage and thus no reading comprehension.
Seriously if Armin's injuries weren't so bad that surviving them wasn't as physically impossible, it'd be a lot better.
How much you wanna bet Isayama wanted to make his death as convincing as possible just for the sake of a dramatic cliffhanger? He got the desired reaction from it.
So that would make Eren manlet's uncle?
The serum can be split if they don't mind leaving one as a retard titan in Shiganshina. The resulting titans will be deformed in some way but it doesn't matter as long as it keeps tem alive. The mule titan is hideous but it was easily the most competent enemy shifter while BRZ all jobbed pathetically.
>as a retard titan
As an abnormal retard titan, since not injecting properly fucks up the transformation. The SL are out of gas and the mindless titan wouldn't go for Bert but them. Everyone would die because of that.
There are two syinges. Levi is good enough to face two abnormals alone and Eren has gas left. All Levi has to do is borrow Eren's gas and throw Bert into the abnormal's mouth while everyone else stays on a different roof.
Reddit is a lost cause.
>EM was sunk by Isayama
I consider all ships acknowledged by Isayama or the editors not to be crackships since anything can change later. Which so far is
EM, EA, Petra Oluo and YH
Not this. AA a best.
