Guidebook still being leaked in bits and pieces.
EMA confirmed for opposing each other in the future. Jean confirmed for best shingeki.
Meant to be.
Isayama isn't self inserting here
Dumping what we have so far.
I want to do a infograph later.
—In the Uprising Arc, we start to see some subtle changes in Erwin and Levi’s relationship, don’t we?
Isayama: In the Amecomi Hero edition [TN: Attack on Avengers], it writes about conflicts in relation to the phrase, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’. In Levi’s case, if he didn’t have any power, he would just be a normal person without any responsibilities. But because he has power, he has become a person who is burdened with too much responsibility.
Levi himself realized this when Kenny said, “Everyone is a slave to something,” and asked him, “What about you?”. He is a slave to his own power. He felt a sense of duty: “I have to become a a hero,”
…This can be said about Mikasa as well… The Ackermans serve their liege, so there are many of them who are able to exert their power to the utmost maximum.
—Huh?? (surprise) That’s information that hasn’t even been revealed in the story! It’s true that for Mikasa there is Eren, and for Kenny there was Uri. They both have a ‘liege-like’ presence in their lives…
Isayama: For Levi, that person is Erwin. He has acknowledged Erwin as an existence who he looks up to. It’s part of the Ackerman bloodline, or an instinctive part of them, you could say.
—I-I see… (surprise). Levi maintaining his surroundings and distance, and the way he avoids facing those who wander in, it’s all because of the huge power he possesses?
Isayama: He may have been scared of building deep relationships. Since he is living in a world where he doesn’t know when he’ll be eaten by a titan, he avoided having people he considered his family.
—Being the only one left as everyone dies around him… the pain he would feel. But even this Levi was able to build a parent-like, close relationship with his new squad.
Isayama: There are a few causes for this change in Levi, and one of them was when he realized Erwin’s intentions. In vol 13, when it was revealed that Ragako Village’s inhabitants had been turned into titans, Erwin smiled. Erwin smiled because he was thinking, “I was right all along”. But to Levi, Erwin is the person who once said to him, “let’s save humanity together”. So in that moment, Levi thought, “Isn’t that different to what he said before?” LOL.
[TN: that’s not me laughing, that’s actually Isayama laughing at confused Levi, what a dork]
—It was a great surprise to him (lol). So I wonder if Levi can accept Erwin’s intentions, then.
Isayama: Around the time of vol 13, Levi wanted to say to Erwin something like, “You’ve been hiding this from me, haven’t you.” But he just gradually stopped… He wasn’t doubting Erwin. It was more like, he felt Erwin was mysterious. This person who he considers to be an existence that is above himself, that there is still so much that he doesn’t know about him. And he realized that same person has been acting all this time with a motive that is childlike. He was interested and reacted with, “Well, it can’t be helped, I’ll help you with it then.”
Isayama: Then in vol 18, when Levi tried to take over command of the mission and Erwin wouldn’t listen, Levi was a bit angry at Erwin’s behaviour. Levi’s line, “I trust your judgement,” had a bit of an angry, “If something happens, this is your responsibility,” mixed with it. And right after, when he broke up Eren and Jean’s fight by using more violence than was necessary, it was actually Levi taking out that anger on them (lol).
—That was very unfortunate for Eren and Jean (lol). But the fact that Levi can take his emotions out on his new squad, you could say it’s because he has such a familiarity with them.
Isayama: They don’t treat him like a monster, so I think he feels a trust for his new squad that he’s never had before.
Levi noticed Erwin’s unexpected intentions, had just said farewell to Kenny, so he must have been feeling a sense of loss. And his new squad may have buried that crevice in his heart. That’s why in vol 17, even though he was punched by Historia, there was a bit of “You worked hard” and “You’ve done well” mixed in with his “Thank you”.
—That scene with Levi’s smile was a truly warm scene. And Levi’s liege, Erwin, begins pushing forward to solve the mystery of the titans.
Isayama: His unconscious dream became a conscious one, and as a human, the stable side of him was present even more than before. But even so, Erwin is not the kind of person who prioritizes his own dream. He follows through with his responsibilities, and when the time comes Erwin is able to give up on his dream and make the best decision. If we were to compare, Erwin is a character in a similar position to Armin. Armin is chasing a dream that is pure and fresh, while Erwin’s is drenched with something very personal, you could say.
Could Flocke have defeated Mikasa if Hanji hadn't intervened?
His father was killed because of a slip of his own mouth. He had delusions of a sort in response to that, and acted to achieve his own private goals. But before he knew it, he was at the top of the scouting legion and giving orders to subordinates. There was a part of him asking himself, “What am I even doing this for”. He was a paradox, a self-contradiction. So when he faced his subordinates, telling them, ‘for the sake of humanity’s future’, he felt like he was lying to them. He has been struggling with these conflicts and anguish all along the way.
This is all so contradictory if you think about it. Ackerman are supossed to serve and protect their liege, yes? then why would Levi let Erwin die knowing full well he wanted to see that damn basement? That he was far more resourceful and smart than anybody? in other words, the perfect guidance for restoring humanity. It also strikes me as weird, according to this >>145453174
once Levi found out about Erwin's intentions he basically said "fuck it, we're sticking together no matter what"
And then he lets him die like that without letting him fullfill his dream.
I'm not blaming Eren, Mikasa or Armin. EM reacted as I expected them to, emotionally. They were broken their important friend, their brother was dying and they were in the middle of a tough choice that'd ether let said person die or continue on living. Still, they were under control. Levi was the one who had the last choice, and he gave his back to his "master" just for the fuck of it.
Why in the fuck Isayama.
Goodnight Sweet Commander Handsome.
You'll always live in our hearts.
“In the upcoming developments, the three of them and their way of thinking will go in different directions. As a result, they will end up in opposition.”
Someone translate the rest?
—Kenny serves his ‘boss’, Uri, as well. But in his case…
Isayama: While Kenny was serving under Uri, he was trying to become a kind of dictator, but I’m not sure if that’s truly what he wanted. On one hand he wanted to be one, while he also felt he didn’t want to at the same time. So in truth, he may have just been tired.
– Regarding Mikasa and Levi’s Ackerman family mystery, we’re also receiving more clarity! Can we say that Mikasa, Levi, Kenny are all part of the same Ackerman bloodline?
Isayama: They are all part of the same Ackerman bloodline. However, their reasons for protecting their respective counterparts don’t have anything to do with the bloodline itself - it’s just their nature (laughs). Within the story, Mikasa and Levi almost have the guardian/knight-like roles, right? That’s because they encountered the existence of a “boss”-like individual (T/N: Isayama interestingly uses the exact katakana “ボス” - “boss” here), and the desire to work for that person is very in line with their personalities.
Top left: Asian Family (down to Mikasa’s mother)
Top Right: Ackermans
The line between these two: Served the King a long time ago
Above Grandfather Ackerman: Main Family （down to “Grandfather” but he has no name)
To the left of Main Family: Branch Family (down to “Mikasa’s father” and he has no name either)
Under the Main Family category: Big Brother “Kenny” and Little Sister “Kuchel”, later down to her son Levi
Text connecting Levi and Mikasa: Into the Survey Corps.
Something like that but also, remembering Erwin's last words, he realized that he didn't abandon his dreams completely and he was hallucinating about it. I think in that moment, Levi realized that the decision was his (Flashback of Kenny giving him the serum) and his decision was to let Erwin rest: "Abandon your dreams and go to hell" and Erwin accepted that.
It's kinda poetic, but by letting Erwin die Levi is saving his humanity instead of living as a Titan and be miserable.
If Erwin lived, he will be feared as a ruthless monster as Flocke said.
If isayama doesn't disappoint, Armin will wake up having to carry all of this burden instead, and we know he's not fit for it.
Levi is a hero because he knows he has strength, more so than average people. "With great strength comes great responsibility" so he's kind of enslaved to his own strength.
Hes using his super strength to fight for Erwin's cause basically like Mikasa and Kenny.
There's a theory going around on moon realm the no one in the end will get what they're desiring.
And Kenny let Uri die. They are not obsessed people overly attached to "objects", so they understand the human side of the people they care for.
So while I don't buy the excuse, is pretty clear that
>Erwin was full of guilt about his father's death
>Erwin needed to amend the sense of his father's death
>Erwin decided his own meaning of life was validate his father's theories
>But in his path of prove his father's theories and fight his guilt, he realised there was something bigger than his personal desires. he realised he was fighting for something not selfish.
>And that was actually his father's goal (probably): the truth, the freedom
>I think the main problem with Erwin is that he had a problem with the path. Even if he chose the right path, this was always going to be his "selfish path", because he is haunted by guilt. Guilt is the raw material of his paths, always.
>Manlet and the people surrounding him were able to understand Erwin wasn't only the "lol, bad guy".
>But becoming a shifter meant he had unlimited power to fulfill humanity's goals, often mixed with his selfish desires.
>At some point the bigger picture and his private desires clashed.
Manlet didn't seem the type who was ready to let someone he respected to turn into such a mess.
So, since Erwin can't fix his father's death, and with a new ability, plus his guilt, even if he decided to choose a "right path", the guilty complex is going to be present. So the guy was going to end needing a shrink for life.
Still, I don't buy entirely this theory because is rushed and not well developed.
I guess that's what they meant with "the guidebook contains plenty of ErwL pandering"
>Oh please Grisha-san come to my home repeatedly to check on my wife's pussy
>Grisha-san, I would love to hear you tell my daughter everything about the birds and the bees
>Considering how hard he jobbed
That wasn't jobbing. He literally got stabbed the moment he opened the door. No way he could have save himself from that. Even Levi could die if something like that were to happen to him
He accepted that because it was a bitch of a situation, I'm sure if he could've had it otherwise, he would've prefered to keep living. I mean, he didn't make peace with death, Erwin expressed how much he wanted to see the basement. It's all he has ever wanted to do, ever since he was little. The reason why he rejected love, the reason why so many people died, all for nothing? Levi knew it. He had the chance, and he changed his mind in the last moment. I'm sorry, but I can't justify that.
>Zeke is literally the only shifter that has managed to kill a main character.
It actually sunk the explanation of Levi wanting to put an end to his suffering. Two reasons:
1-Levi saved Armin because Erwin was only fighting for his own motives and when he heard him talking while he was unconscious, he realized he didn't give up his dreams completely. Choosing Armin who has a dream that is not so personal.
2-He already made the decision of letting Erwin die when he told him to go to hell and this time, he choose Armin who still has that look of hope.
>This is the last time Bert heard Annie being mentioned.
I wish I could understand. Hadn't Erwin said this, he would've gotten the serum for sure.
What does this page display? Erwin's dream didn't leave his mind, even in his dying moments. And Levi should sympathize with that, he's the same after all.
In my head, after hearing Erwin's words, Levi should've said
>I'll let you reach your goals.
Instead we got
>I ought to let you rest...
It just does not make sense. Erwin's whole purpose was to see the basement. Levi's purpose is to aid Erwin reach his goal...unless Erwin's isn't Levi's "master". And the idea of saving humanity is what moves Levi forwards and Erwin just happened to be the most fit to lead him to that AT THAT TIME.
man I just don't know
>All this likely interesting content
>only translates manlet
I am pretty sure he didn't want to put an end to his misery. He chose Armin because Erwin didn't know what to do with his life after the basement, he could say we will free humanity or something but he didn't. Levi though Erwin won't want to lead them anymore.
>Kenny, Bert, and Erwin are dead
>Armin is alive
Talking about the anon I quoted regarding the Q & A those are mainly just all put together since 2013 or something. The rest is new and interesting but those meh we already know those questions.
If EMA really is going to fall apart then we're one step closer to EA lads.
Bert dying helped, but if you think Mikasa will ever stop clinging to Eren you're sorely mistaken.
>And right after, when he broke up Eren and Jean’s fight by using more violence than was necessary, it was actually Levi taking out that anger on them (lol).
0/10 what a shitty excuse for an adult
Pretty valid what you say. But Manlet has at least one panel explaining Flocke his way of thinking: freeing Irwin's life because demon speech.. Then you have guidebook because, well, Isayama needs to explain things he couldn't make clear in the story. See how Isayama put it in a so simple way just telling us, but wasn't able to actually narrate it. I do think Isayama is showing right now his amateur side.
The only possible Eren ships now are EAr and Eren/Ocean.
Erwin said himself he was in love with Mary. Regardless, in the supposedly canon interviews Levi and Erwin were being asked what they'd like to do once they ended the titans threat. Erwin replied he'd like to start a family, to which Levi said something along the lines of "your kids won't be cute at all". Then Levi mentioned he'd like to open a tea store.
Well with Armin making it out alive I think Mikasa biting the dust in the future is a possibility.
Annie's been outside the wall right? Can't she just take him to see the ocean before visiting her village?
>Erwin liking someone else beside Levi
Stop lying anon. Altho Levi saying your kids wont be cute is cute since he would be the mother. ErwL would make the most beautiful children ever.
So these various changes are all challenges for Eren?
Isayama: My editor Bakku-kun (Kawakubo Shintaro) asked me long ago, “Who exactly is the enemy of the protagonist?” To be honest, before he posed this question, I never considered it. In Star Wars, Luke Skywalker said, “Why are all my enemies myself?” - and then the film ends. The one Eren must confront is also that type of “self,” as well as those like Annie. Right now, Eren’s direct opponent truly doesn’t exist, but the developments from now will showcase the things that he must overcome.
Or maybe he wanted the readers to draw their own conclusions. ErwLfujos will think Levi did it for Erwin but his flashback and Kenny's words prove otherwise. He saw Erwin hallucinating about his dream but he chose Armin.
Maybe. But see how choosing Armin doesn't make sense if you don't read the guidebook. While writing, you build a character and his bonds with other characters; in this case Isayamae had 83 chapters for this. But then he solves the "problem" just spoonfeeding it in the guidebook. I do find sense in Isayama's explanation in the guidebook, but I don't see it developed in the manga.
We knew Erwin was a selfish person, read his conversation with Zackley. But of course, people didn't want to think Erwin was like that. He decided to died along with the soldiers because he believed it was correct, not because he wanted to do it. Levi told him to go to hell because his dreams don't care in this situation.
Central MP. If you wanna include that in Political Arc, go ahea.
My own fault though, I guess. For expecting Kenny and his group could be an actual threat, but they went down far too easy.
The anon who posted it was pretending to be someone else, so probably.
Although it would be hilarious if that part about them being soulmates is true. The collateral damage from that would be a real spectacle.
What was the problem with this? It was slow yeah but it had great action moments and wasn't al about the damn Titans.
>the ackerman plotline
Yeah i agree. They are the Uchiha of SNK with broken and weird powers
As someone who just caught up, the biggest problem with the political arc was the Ackerman stuff (already mentioned) and that Historia was a terribly boring character. It was fine when it was about anything else.
Not that anon, but
>At some point it says Erwin doesn't have more to live
>Then it's mentioned he is someone he has dreams but is ready to give up for something bigger
>Then Isayama says Erwin's dreams is haunted by his guilt, while Armin's one is pure
>Then you have someone (Erwin) who is at the same time a suicidal depressed man, and a man with dreams he wishes to accomplish
>Then you have Manlet stating Erwin actually doesnt' have more future because people like Flocke have a big grudge against him despite admiring him
>Manlet/Isayama assumes Erwin doesn't deserve /is not worth to survive
At last, whilst surrounding the basement, the faceoff between humanity and Titans has arrived. How exactly does our author see the trio of Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, who have returned to Shiganshina once again? Let us speak to Isayama-sensei regarding the direction of their growths.
– We have finally reached the thrilling Battle for Shiganshina! Compared to the beginning of the story, the main trio are now much more experienced.
Isayama: The Eren at the start used rage as his motivation. The type of anger he possessed mainly stemmed from frustration at his inability to leave the walls. Of course, the murder of his mother and other injustices both became sources also. His retaliation against such pressures triggered all this fury, and that’s what this series describes at first.
Maybe if she goes back to that cave. Rod said being in that place helped act as a trigger, but whether that's because of those crystals or the shit that went down in that place I'm not sure.
– In that case, is the Eren in manga volume 3 - the Eren battling Titans yet still under the suspicion of humans - still reacting with the same type of anger?
Isayama: Actually for that scene, I actually think I portrayed Eren a bit too calmly. The Eren at that time didn’t want to involve Mikasa and Armin, but he also realized that he cannot resolve anything alone. That’s when he became more reliant on Armin little by little. To this day, I still wonder, “Ah, how should I illustrate that kind of sentiment?” Even though Eren is the one who will advance the plot, it was important for Armin to gain self-confidence through some sort of “rite of passage.” The scene should have that feeling.
– Indeed, through using that scene as a release valve for development, not only does Eren gain growth, Armin can change and mature as well.
Isayama: Even though Armin always clutched to the wish of “being with Eren and Mikasa forever,” his self-doubt of “I’ll never compare to these two” always lingers. On the one hand he wonders if he’s “powerless and useless,” but he still denies it stubbornly with “that can’t be the case, right?” While possessing this attitude, he follows Eren and Mikasa closely. Another valve-like moment is how just as Armin gets closer to the other two, he also gains confidence in the idea of “being together is wonderful.” However, the Armin right now likely has inferiority bubbling inside him, so he may have a different perspective than others.
– So in the upcoming developments, Armin’s desire to catch up to Eren and Mikasa will guide his actions, leading to him potentially deviating his methods from those of his friends. Will Mikasa still be as calm as before?
Isayama: For Mikasa personally, protecting Eren is priority no matter what, even if she has to take part in some petty actions secretly. But towards Armin and the others, she believes that they should be capable of taking care of themselves.
For Mikasa, the “rite of passage” that was her parents’ tragic deaths had overwhelming influence on her. When they were killed, the world she had believed in utterly crumbled, and Mikasa was awakened under those circumstances - losing all of her innocence in the process. At that time Eren allowed her to discover renewed value again, like that of a newborn bird’s first glimpse at a grown one - it was that kind of admiration and trust. Thus, she swore to follow Eren. However, Eren was actually even more childish than Mikasa. As his committed caretaker, she also thinks at times, “Ay, what a worrisome child.” (laughs)
>Isayama: For Mikasa personally, protecting Eren is priority no matter what, even if she has to take part in some petty actions secretly. But towards Armin and the others, she believes that they should be capable of taking care of themselves.
Maybe is her nip blood what makes her so retarded? Because even manlet cared for hs comrades a lot.
>For Mikasa personally, protecting Eren is priority no matter what, even if she has to take part in some petty actions secretly. But towards Armin and the others, she believes that they should be capable of taking care of themselves.
Did we ever find out why the Reiss family did nothing but sit around doing jack shit while titans invaded the walls and the goverment became corrupt as shit?
Bunch of shittiers if you ask me. Ghrisha did a service by wiping out those useless fucks
She prioritizes Eren's life because he is a suicidal bastard and a temperamental guy. She doesn't trust him enough but I think Isayama is talking about how she was in the past. That part of the interview is about EMA in the first arc.
Probably the First King/"God"'s will. Rod mentioned how he and Uri had begged their father to use their power to help others but how Uri and Frieda had inherited the will to do nothing.
The fake king was probably to keep the eye of the public off of them.
>because he is a suicidal bastard and a temperamental guy. She doesn't trust him
Fair enough. My favorite is when Jean rips him a new one about how many times he'd be dead without his didan powers.
Either Armin or Historia, given that they're the only characters that can lighten Eren up whenever he's depressed. Sorry Mikasa...
I like how isayama specifically said it's part bloodline part instinct and laid out their specific "masters" and you're still in denial. Especially towards the "fujo" part.
Maintaining a titan requires stamina and Armin barely met the minimum requirements while they were in training. It's highly unlikely his shifter power will be useful for anything other than regenerative purposes.
Then again Isayama is currently Arminwanking the manga to death, so something could change.
I don't know how are high schools in USA but I see Armin as a classical music lover, Mikasa as a girl who wears granny clothes and Eren as the guy in the corner. Also, Jean as an athlete.
Good night sweet prince
your death was looming for a long time
Rest and know peace.
Also Fucking ayy!
DING DON'T THE BERT IS DEAD THE BERTHOLDT BERT! THE BERTHOLDT BERT! DING DONG THE BERTHOLDT SHIFTER IS DEAD!
>Historia is queen now
>The scouting legion has literally only nine members left
>Hairy titan is boss of the Armored and Colossal titan
>Erwin is dead
>Armin ate Bertholdt and has become a shifter
best chapter ever
Erwin needed a heroic end and Adolf Bertholdt needed to die.
I guess you can say the Ackermans are followers in a way but it's not like they're lacking independent thoughts.
I honestly wish Erwin's death scene was explained better because it seems that Isayama just ditched the rest of the explanation into the guidebook.
Levi sees the childish side in Erwin and he couldn't dare to ruin him anymore. Him insisting on giving Erwin the serum until Flocke had the talk might seems very contrived, but I think it still makes sense.
>If we were to compare, Erwin is a character in a similar position to Armin. Armin is chasing a dream that is pure and fresh, while Erwin’s is drenched with something very personal, you could say.
Levi hesitated when Erwin began to hallucinate about his younger days, when his dreams were just as pure and fresh. However Erwin is now shackled down by guilt as explained in the guidebook and he's intoxicated by this borrowed dream.
It's kind of fucked up that Levi is "letting Erwin go" to ease his suffering, but I guess it would make far more sense if you see the titan serum as a curse rather than a second chance at life.
From what Isayama has been implying, EMA will part ways because of their differences, probably stemming from this serum injection that EM imposed on Armin.
Goths pretend that they don't care what other people think when they are the biggest attention whores there are.
Mikasa really doesn't care what other people think of her. She'd dress with comfortable clothes + muh scarf
>“In the upcoming developments, the three of them and their way of thinking will go in different directions. As a result, they will end up in opposition.”
Having different ways of thinking that will end up in opposition does not mean they will fight or something. Armin is now overloaded and will affect him emotionally but I think Levi will help him in that way, he cares about his squad. Isayama said he has not confidence on himself and that's the reason he has a different perspective.
The opposition will occur once they are in the basement. Could it be because Eren will go with Zeke? I think that's the reason.
I can't fucking believe that from all the SL, from all the survivors of five years ago, from all the badass veterans only Hange and Levi are left.
Please tell me this is real and I'm not dreaming.
I wish Hanji would be my "master"
(From dumblr with poster comment included)
Interviewer: Speaking about bloodline, there is also something about the Touyou clan. Mikasa is not a pure-blood Touyou person. She carries both bloodlines from the Touyou and Ackermans families!
Isayama: Mikasa’s “power” comes from the Ackermans, and she inherits her black hair from the Touyou clan. Speaking of which, this is something that I regret…… Right now there is nothing I can fix since I’ve already drawn it in the manga, but the word Touyou is prone to confusions. In the world of the original work, it means “East Sea” and the kanji character 洋 takes its literal meaning which is the “ocean”. But if I say Touyou nowadays, people will for sure interpret it as Japan or Asian regions…… The Touyou in Snk world is different from the Touyou in our real world!
Interviewer: Will we see the day when you reveal the meanings of Ackerman’s “power awakening” as well as Touyou’s “mark”…?
Isayama: ……Well? Who knows. (laugh)
*I guess we should now say Mikasa is from the East Sea clan? Also, this means Mikasa comes from where Armin and Eren have been dreaming about since their childhood!
Armin inheriting the serum means that he'll be objectified and feared by everyone, and that he will have to abandon himself and basically whore himself out as humanity's savior and a monstroisity capable of making inhumane decisions for the sake of progress, since he's going down Erwin's path. This is exactly why I think Levi didn't inject him.
If Isayama plans to have his narrative to be punishing, I can easily see how Armin's visions and Eren's will split. This serum alone taints Armin's "muh ocean" dream. He puked when he killed a MP. I don't think Armin is ready to carry the weight. Armin was ready to die and let his friends carry his dreams, thinking he's finally not useless and now his friends are dragging him back again.
>Levi will help him in that way
I don't think Levi will be extremely bitter at the kids for their insubordination but Isayama did points out (through guidebook and Mikasa) that he's been getting weaker. Levi's only mission rn is to kill the MT and he's gonna hold this like a mantra. He seems really broken to me. Since Isayama is such a dream cockblock I doubt Levi can see his dream come to fruition.
I too think whatever they find in the basement would be extremely difficult to swallow.
Forgot to add the
Note: To avoid confusion, here I will not translate Mikasa’s clan, “東洋” Touyou, as “Asian” since this is exactly what Isayama is trying to rectify. I will stick to the original Japanese word.
It could be Yggdrasil, Earth but with different nations, the Star Trek Mirror universe or even Stranegreal form Ace combat.
Fucking alternate worlds.
>full clean scan
D-Don't you go getting my hopes up Anon
>Crew opens the basement
>Narrative switches to 20 chapters of Annie flashback
How mad would you be?
I would walk to Japan and beat Ishyama
or do that thing I mentioned last month where I find where he lives and send him an envelope with a picture of a frowny face with the signatures of angry people here.
Not really anon, sorry.
And that's it.
>that little Annie
>that judging look
My heart. Thanks Anon.
I can see Armin feeling sick and miserable but I don't think he will do anything else, nothing extreme. If he knows the Commander is dead, he will feel the burden of responsability but I can't imagine how he will react, he is very reserved and isn't predictable. I want the best for him.
In my world, they look like pic related in modern day.
Reminder that if a certain titan took more care to chew his food, Santa Clause would be the coordinate right now.
Wait a minute. Eren was missing limbs when he got eaten by a titan.
Aren't shifters not able to transform when they're missing limbs?
>For Mikasa personally, protecting Eren is priority no matter what, even if she has to take part in some petty actions secretly. But towards Armin and the others, she believes that they should be capable of taking care of themselves.
So she literally gives no fucks about Armin. Wow. Just wow. There goes any sort of development she had.
It seems to be a strong influence over them but they can see the bigger picture. I remember there have been a couple moments Mikasa prioritized the bigger picture while Eren was in danger, such as that whole arc where Historia and Eren were hostages.
Ackerman plotline was pointless.
Don't know why anyone would wanna ignore the last chapter unless they are butthurt their favorite character died.
I, for one, am glad relevant characters are dying because it was beginning to feel a little too safe. I hope Isayama sticks to his original intention of killing off all of the characters.
Hopefully those people saying he won't kill off a popular character will shut the fuck up now.
Is he? Isayama used present tense in that, not past tense.
I really hope he's referring only to the first arc because this actually made me sad and I don't even like Armin. That's just a shitty thing to do to someone, to pretend to like them so you can get on the good side of their
lover. Armin's an annoying gary stu but even he doesn't deserve that. This is really making me sad.
So was Mikasa's AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH this chapter just for show? Were her tears crocodile tears?
>tfw this will never happen in canon because mufasa only cares about eren and would probably not hesitate to beat armin into a coma if it meant eren got the last chip in the bag
And the guidebook even confirms Armin has/had a crush on Mikasa (and Eren) and looks up to her. Such a shame.
>We have finally reached the thrilling Battle for Shiganshina! Compared to the beginning of the story, the main trio are now much more experienced.
He is talking about how they were at the beginning. That was the general question because he says Mikasa lost her innocence and thinks Eren is like a child. The question was "Will Mikasa still be as calm as before?" but he actually didn't answer the question. This only proves Mikasa doesn't trust that side of Eren to stay out of problems. But we have that scene when Eren and Jean fight and Armin and Mikasa don't stop him and smile, that contradicts what Isayama is saying in the interview and that's why I think he is talking in past.
Thanks anon, I really hope so. I don't know why I'm broken up about this so much, AM aren't even close to being my favorites. It's just sad to think of the little coconut looking up to and admiring someone who cruelly uses him and lies about everything.
I think it's because someone I thought was my friend for 10 years ended up being the mastermind behind my bullying, and also used me for my rich parents. :^(
It's always been this high during spoilers week, especially after this chapter it's not surprising a lot of usually quiet poster comment on it as well. There are als mobile posters here.
It's also important to remember, and some people don't seem to get this, that fans aren't dropping it because their favourites died. I think the majority knew that Bert and Erwin would die eventually. In how many series, for example, do we see a figure of authority be he a general or a king etc. live through to the end, since writers like to use that 'passing on the authority' trope?
It was the way in which their death was handled, the lack of closure on their stories or even lack of development on their character regarding Bert, and that they both seemed to die for Armin's glory that angered many.
I'm sorry anon. It's very clear for me you didn't like the outcome of the most recent chapter, but I sure as hell did. Isayama seems to haved liked it as well and as long as Armin, Mikasa and Eren are still alive, there will be EMAfags rejoicing. Get used to it.
>implying I'm a Bertfag/Erwinfag
>get used to it
>being passive aggressive
This is why no one likes EMAfags because you reek of tumblr so badly it's hilarious. And you guys literally do nothing but fingerpoint so good job on being cancerous.
I never said you were a Bertfag/Erwinfag you flaming faggot.
You just revealed your salty ass. I swear to god you' guys are the definition of pathetic.
>trying to hide that you're from tumblr this badly
>posting Bert dying hilariously
AYYYYY. I swear Jesus fucking Christ you're so obviously a child. You need to be 18 and above to post faggot.
>projecting this badly
Your constant butthurt amuses me.
>Popular and don't bully the weak, but lacking in tact
>Daughter of a celebrity and lives in comfort. Likely to suffer when she steps out into the society.
Who here is looking forward to Kenny in season 2?
>no EMA hate in my safe space
Yes yes! These stupid (not like us Armin lovers) Armin haters are trying to trigger us Armin intellectuals to kill ourselves. Bunch of stupid fags!!!!!
Is this simply the best moment in recent manga history?
Well Armin just proved he's not in 84. Wonder if she'll be more protective of him.
Or is her feeling like he should be capable of taking care of himself her way of saying she doesn't care about him?
>Followers of the Jock and Queen Bee
>Spoils Historia single‐mindedly. Her purpose is to make Historia believes that she can't survive without her
>Reiner's shadow. He is dependent on Reiner (legman)
>A high-ranking member of the cultural club
>Normal human who do things irritably.
>Wants to have Historia's leftovers
I can't wait to see him animated. I'm excited to find out who will voice him.
This is the mindfuck only someone like Armin could trigger in both fiction and real life.
Why are there so many tumblrfaggots in this thread? Stop playing tough guys. You come here as anons to say all the "problematic" shit your peers at Tumblr wouldn't allow. Fucking niggers, get off my board REEEEE
She cares about him and trust him very much, kicking, screaming and crying isn't enough? Yeah, she could be more protective over him but not in the same level of Eren (she think he is like a child). She would want to understand Armin's mind I think.
No seriously I come to /a/ after three years and I see this shit. Is this how the rest of the board is? Are you all cucked now? If you wanna insult somebody call them a fucking nigger cunt. Don't play soft you faggots.
Bad boys & girls
>Has not reconciled with her stepfather and is in a rebellious period. She doesn't want people to think she is the same type as Jean.
>Thinks he is popular and acts like a bad guy. He doesn't have any dissatisfaction with the world.
Deviants of the school caste
I can't wait! Imagine if in addition to us getting the flashback scene we also get a Kenny OVA. That would be so exciting!
You are the cancer that needs to be purged from these threads.
Enjoy your ban, and I haven't been on /a/ since March because I still can't figure out how to change my ip address on my modem because it didn't even change when I took the battery out for 12 hours.
You and hater_skater would get along splendidly.
