Hi, I'm currently looking for some cute/sexy Eren and Mika piks to make an AMV slideshow to Berlin's 'Take my Breath Away'. If you would like me to include your pik, please let me know; I will credit all artists and the singer.
In fact, I think that not even Mikasa would fight the Titans without Eren. She ONLY joined the military because of Eren. She might've lived long enough to get everyone to that gas depot, but I think that she would've resigned afterward. Or, only fight to keep the Titans out but not beyond that.
Eren was the only one who actually wanted to kill all the Titans, and it's not only because his mom died. Eren wanted to join the scouts so that he could LEAVE that place before all of this went down.
I think that that's another thing that I like about him. Everyone else is happy with how things were before, but Eren and Armin wanted to see the world.
Clearly, a 10/10 work of art. I favorited a lot of SnK/AoT fan art, but this is one of the best. Eren x Mikasa is my favorite pairing and Eren's actually my favorite character. ABOVE Mikasa. I don't know if Mikasa even ranks #2, because she seems to be #1 on so many people's list that it annoys me.
But, I am one of the few who actually like this guy, apparently. Which befuddles me because he's what keeps the show going. If it wasn't for Eren, everyone would be too pussy to fight the Titans. Sure, his speech got his whole squad motivated and they ALL died (including himself, sort of) because of it.
This picture feels very gentle that sounds so strange but I can't think of another way to put it. You did a great job capturing the feelings Mikasa has towards Eren and showing it here (and Eren's lack of returning them as well).
I like this pic. I like seeing Eren and Mikasa interact. I like seeing them so close and bonding. I do not like the idea of them being a couple. I just want them to form a close sibling bond. Not a romantic type. Romance has become cliche.
Because Eren is a fucking badass and Armin is weak... though I still see Armin as my second favorite character.
Yeah I can see the hints of Mikasa liking Eren. I just really hope it's just false implications or that she realizes Eren will never like her in a sexual way. Though... I do find it annoying that he is much nicer to Armin than he is to her.
Or they don't. Seriously, there are just as many manga/animes where the characters don't get romantically resolved as there are ones that do. Whether Mikasa and Eren get together may actually just be left up to the viewer by the end. The reason I speculate this is because while Mikasa is defined by her loyalty, it was never maid important as to if they should be together. Unlike in Naruto, FMAB, etc where the love interest is an important part of the character development, Attack on Titan doesn't focus on this topic like... at all. Yeah there is some teasing, but like really subtle teasing (aside from Jean's reaction to seeing Mikasa). The OVAs don't count where it is confirmed that Mikasa is in love with Eren (she gets sad when Eren exclaims that they are not dating or when Armin calls her Eren's sister).
So.... because a protagonist isn't romanticly capable... he is not worth having fans? Yeah, that makes sense. Characters must be defined by their romantic life. Like Sakura Haruno from Naruto... a girl that has the sole purpose of being the object of Naruto's affection and Sasuke Uchiha's rejection. Yyyyyyeah.
Just because a hero doesn't wanna commit to a lady doesn't make him a hero. Hell, I know some decent people that don't really care much for finding a spouse. Eren is just one of those people that hardly thinks about it. He is (and impied to have always been) a disturbed kid. Border-line sociopath. The death of his mother and home town made things even worse. He wants vengeance on the Titans AND wants to protect what's left of humanity. He still is a team player and cares about his friends. He rescued Mikasa before he even knew her. He is very protective of Armin. Seemed deeply saddened to learn Marco and the others died in battle. Loses his shit when the Female Titan kills the survey corps (do not spoil for me what happens after that). And he is not above attraction since he is implied to have had a small crush on Anna at one point. He just doesn't prioritize his love life. He also just doesn't view Mikasa as a girlfriend. He in fact is annoyed by her constant vying over him.
So in short, Eren commits to any task/goal he gives himself. Romance is just not one of them (at the time). The only real cop-out here is making him and Mikasa non-blood related just so we don't cringe at the idea of them getting together.
i know that they are family - but i also know that they are not blood-related, and although very rare, there were some hints in the manga that they think of each other (at least mikasa does) as more than just brother and sister
