It's a flagrant violation of everything 4chan stands for, but I want to take a moment to say something completely unironic and heartfelt.

Attack on Titan actually gets what love is.

If you've never had a girlfriend/boyfriend, never had a real kiss, then I would say you can learn more from AoT than any high school romance storyline I've ever seen. A lesser story would have had Mikasa just kiss Eren in chapter 50, or say she wanted him to be her boyfriend, or even fucking propose to him. Isayama had her do something far more important: communicate to him why he matters to her, what he's done for her. Because it's not *about* whether you've hit some official milestone like kissing or calling them your girlfriend or had sex or made eye contact through falling cherry blossoms. It's about what you MEAN to each other. A healthy relationship is one where you're both a positive force in each other's lives. That's the secret. That's what really matters- what advances an IRL relationship isn't "be my girlfriend", it's "I really like doing this with you." Telling someone else that you've enjoyed their company, enjoyed spending time with them.

*shrug* Hope that's of use to someone.

And now I need to get drunk because I'm a sheltered retard who can't interact with people and I'm getting too old and I've been with the same group of friends for too long to find someone through them.

And fapping to traps and getting drunk won't fix that.

And this is where I stop reading. There's no way Mikasa serves as a positive influence to Eren and vice versa.
>>
>>101196356
>*shrug*

>>101197018
OP here, I actually agree, there's tons of room for debate (especially since we still don't know what's going on with her brain). You can definitely make the argument that each does the other more harm than good.

I do think Isayama's taken the time to at least show cases where their influence is positive- Mikasa telling Eren what he needed to hear to fight Annie, and snapping out of her shock at his apparent death because she knew he'd be pissed if she gave up like that.
>>
>>101196356
Do you really think that OP? One could argue that Mikasa's relationship with Eren is obsessive and unhealthy. She went through some extreme emotional trauma as a child and was only able to get out of it because of Eren. Because of this I believe she has feelings for him as her savior as opposed to feelings for him as a person. Eren really hasn't done much for her besides saving her when they were children.

Now one could argue that Mikasa is in love with Eren because of his will to never give up and his desire to protect humanity and explore the world, but if that were the case then Mikasa would be supportive of his goals instead of acting so protective of him.

I will however admit that even though their relationship is flawed right now it can still blossom into a beautiful love story. I think a catalyst is needed in order for that to happen, perhaps in the form of Mikasa saving Eren in the same way she was saved (meaning both physically and emotionally). The reason I say that is because it would put them on even grounds and strengthen their bond, after that is established all that remains is a bit of physical attraction and they'll be together in no time.

I like how there's absolutely no follow up to that moment. It's just been completely forgotten.

I don't think Attack on Titan really gets what love is when you take that into account.

Eren is one of the most, if not the most, unlikable MCs in the history of anime. He is an all around asshole.

Mikasa is emotionally dead, except for what concerns Eren.

Love, sure.
>>
>>101199570
Perhaps Eren didn't see it has a confession of love but a speech of hopelessness spoken by a dying person in order to give themselves comfort in their own death.

That was a somewhat difficult message for me to convey but I hope you understood it.

Moving on, they are in a state of constant danger and they have an urgent task they need to accomplish that will determine the fate of all mankind. Perhaps they are avoiding unnecessary complications until after they have fixed the walls.

btw I'm not OP incase you were wondering
>>
>>101199570
It gets what love is in the most tragic sense of the word.
>>
>>101200234
Being Mikasa is suffering.
>>
>>101200234

So something that seemingly gets completely forgotten about by the author is what love is?

Good theory, and a good way to phrase it.

>>101199570
Put it this way: I think Isayama gets what it is. Or at least, gets it as well as I do.

>>101199761
Think I understand it, one question- are you talking about what SHE said, what HE said, or both?

>>101200998
Pretend I said "Hell if I know" there instead.
>>
>>101200948
More like Mikasa's love will remain unfulfilled, or either one of the two will die.
>>
>what advances an IRL relationship isn't "be my girlfriend"

Enjoy being friendzoned forever.

I was talking about what Mikasa said to Eren. Eren interpreted that speech as something different from a confession of love.

That already happened a few times.

I look forward to to fact you're going to get banned.

Too bad her speech didn't advance shit in that situation because, just in case you couldn't tell, Eren is looking at Armin.
>>
>>101196356
I hate you OP.

Not because your thread is awful.

Not because SnK is getting worse and worse every chapter.

Not because you're a huge faggot.

But because you're right.

Thank you.

And fuck you.

>>101201325
Definitely seems possible. I think I grasp how he felt about her before that (chafes under her shadow, cares a ton about her in the rare cases where there's actual reason to worry about her, not enough hard drive space for further emotional complexity due to brain problems), but I'm still not sure what to make of his reaction there.

>>101201596
I definitely got on a soapbox for a bit, apologies. Don't intend to make a habit of it.
>>
OP feels like a Deviantart kind of post.

Every time some anime or manga gets moderately or insanely popular some random nutjobs pop up and try to interprete things into said anime or manga to make it seem deeper than it really is. It's like those doomsday prophets who think they see signs for the apocalypse in the bible.

Manga and anime, much like cartoons and comics, are an extremely shallow medium. Very few actually go deeper than the required minimum to be entertaining. But everyone wants THEIR favorite to be one of these few because they do not want their time to be wasted on a medium made for time wasting.

Fucking liveblogging shitheads who try to justify being a nerd by falsely giving their hobby more meaning than necessary.

You make me sick.

Are you kidding? Eren is over-emotional and childish, who is far too immature for a "healthy relationship". And then Mikasa is a controlling over-bearing parent who understands nothing about Eren's over-emotional feels and outbursts. It's toxic. I keep thinking Isayama is making fun of Eren and Mikasa, especially how it's always Armin and Eren that are touching or looking at one another.

Armin is the only good EMA.

>>101201947
Are you kidding, he's a neurotic failure.

None of the MC's have a good personality.

Isn't the point of Attack on Titan the growth of the main characters?

>Armin ceasing to be a cowardly child, becoming a brilliant strategist.
>Jean ceasing to be a mediocre soldier, becoming a trustworthy and reliable leader.
>Historia growing out of her martyr-complex, realizing that her life is worth living.

And so on.

He's gone from being a neurotic failure to being a neurotic success. That's pretty much the best anyone who isn't Hanji can hope for.

You Eren/Mikasafags are so delusional.

He wasn't a cowardly child. Didn't he keep spouting taboo topics even though it made others kids beat him up?
>>
>>101202290
It was more like low self esteem. He thought he was a useless burden, the guy on the team who's not good enough to actually contribute. What snapped him out of it was realizing Eren and Mikasa had never seen him like that, and that their plan A for the present life-or-death situation was literally "Armin thinks of something cause he's got way better judgement than us."

Yeah, but he only got the low self-esteem later on. He didn't seem to have that as a child. It probably happened when he joined the scouts and sucked at combat training.

Yep Eren is so in love with her

>>101202528
I think it started with the wall rose breach and things no longer being a stable status quo. Any time his motive came up, he had a very fervent response about wanting (needing) to be of use to humanity, and I think that predates combat training. Might have just been a strong awareness of the dire situation.
>>
I love how Mikasa is pouring her heart out to Eren... while he just looks at Armin instead.

I think literally no one in this thread has said this yet, which is kind of cracking me up. Even I'm just naming isolated moments/ways in which it's been positive.

It's kinda anyone's guess what's really going on in their respective heads. I mean, they literally both have brain problems.

>>101203091
even the wall is titans.

>>101199253
>Mikasa saving Eren in the same way she was saved (meaning both physically and emotionally).

You could make the argument that already happened at Stohess (in the manga) with Mikasa repeating Eren's old words back to him. It's still my biggest grievance with the anime.
>>
>>101203091
Yeah, remember the titan that eats their mom?

Turns out that was Armin all along.
