Manga Spoilers[MANGA SPOILERS] A look at Mikasa's and Eren's . I like the way isayama has built the relationship, with small things so that the main genre of snk is not altered. That would be appropriate for AoT I think. When it comes to Attack on Titan, the most popular coupling lies with Eren Yeager and Mikasa, but it doesn't look like the series' creator is. Here is my attempt to analyze the relationship and friendship between Eren and Mikasa as depicted and developed by canon as of Chapter

Eren can't say he loves her, it's not his style so in that moment, he showed her. He showed her by fighting for her even when faced with certain death, by telling her he'd wrap her up as many times as he had to. He wasn't running away from her feelings, he didn't ignore or misunderstand, he showed her everything he felt for her by fighting a Titan unarmed and carrying her on his back when running away.

And even then when Jean tells him he saved Mikasa, Eren thanks him.

Attack On Titan Creator Reveals Eren's Feelings Towards Mikasa

He doesn't give him a smart ass remark, he puts away all his negative feelings toward Jean and personally thanks him. As frosting on this cake, don't forget the fact that in episode 25 he told her alone he strangely enjoyed fighting Annie.

He disturbs her greatly, but he waited for both Armin and Jean to leave. He told her this alone and while horse face and his bff were gone, it was something he was only comfortable telling Mikasa. He then proceeds to finally eat the shit she feeds him and take a nap. So do believe me when I say that it hurts me to to tell you: Eren hasn't shown any romantic feelings towards Mikasa until now.

And it may sound even stranger for me as an EreMika shipper to say this but I'm actually quite happy about this. At this point in the Manga he has not thought about her in a romantic kind of way because he was not able too.

But that does not mean that he never will. Hence, why in my eyes Eren still goes through the development phase that will hopefully end with him actually realizing his feelings if dormant or actually developing these feelings for Mikasa in the first place.

Let's just take a short look back at some of Eren's development, and his character over the course of the story: The 9 year old Eren was the one closest to Mikasa. The sometimes bratty and annoying but still lovable little boy that stood up for his friends and made her smile.

He is the one she cherishes and came to love, he is the one who saved herhe is the one she wants back. And I don't know if that's possible. After his mother's death and all the other bad developments in his life the series starts out with a teenage boy with PTSD who is consumed by anger and has already estranged himself from the ones closest to him, namely Mikasa. Post military training we are greeted with an over confident, self assured teenage boy that thinks he can take on the world alone.

While further emotional detaching himself from Mikasa due to the inferiority complex he has developed towards her. And while he obviously still cares about Mikasa he acts often downright like an complete asshole towards her. It is worth mentioning that this is at least 10 times as bad in the Anime compared to the manga.

This Eren also falsely thinks that: Since then, she has excelled as a soldier. Mikasa is, in a word, a complete badass. She has proven time and time again that she is the one of the most competent fighters in the entire series, second only to Levi. She has taken down numerous Titans completely by herself, whereas most of her fellow trainees struggle to kill even a few and in some cases, even one.

She once hit an Aberrant so hard that it dulled both of her swords to the point of uselessness in one strike. Mikasa kills the Aberrant Titan. Mikasa also knows no fear, as she has put her life on the line for Eren multiple times without so much as a second thought; her only true moment of weakness came when she thought Eren had died, and therefore saw no reason for her to keep fighting.

In one case, she threatened an entire brigade of Garrison troops that wanted to execute Eren.

Mikasa is, essentially, a walking weapon with one goal in life: She will defend him against any foe, be it man or Titan. That is, ultimately, where she differs from Levi: Levi has the skills and the drive to use them to benefit mankind, but Mikasa, who indeed has abilities on par with Levi, lacks his motivation.

Mikasa is always calm, always level-headed, and rarely shows powerful emotions. However, when she does get emotional, it is almost impossible for her to contain it. There have been several cases of this, which leads me to the conclusion I reached in my review: Just a few cases of her instability: When she thought Eren was dead, in order to suppress her grief, she riled all her hopeless fellow trainees into action being probably one of the only people capable of standing a chance in their situationthen took off ahead, carelessly using up her already-low supply of gas.

This rendered her gear useless, she found herself trapped in a alley with a Titan approching her. This is where she succumbed to her pain and she almost allowed herself to get eaten.


When she finally found Eren alive, she broken down in literal sobs. Even when Levi arrived to help her get Eren back, Mikasa was unable to let go of her unconscious need for revenge.

Finally, Mikasa seemed to reach her breaking point.

In the manga, after Eren was kidnapped by Reiner and Bertholdt, Mikasa was reduced to tears. Later, she was the driving force behind the efforts to recover Eren. Even when Christa begged Mikasa to show Ymir mercy, Mikasa, too locked in her murderous rampage, informed her that she had no more mercy to spare she blamed herself for not killing Reiner and Bertholdt before they transformed.

As for her actual personality, she is very withdrawn and rarely speaks to anyone besides Eren and Armin, unless the situation demands it. Watching them both be murdered before her very eyes seemed to have sent Mikasa into shock that she never fully emerged from, seeing as she is just as quiet as a solider as she was when Eren first found her. Eren is the core of her universe and everything she does is centered around him in some way. She had absolutely no desire to join the military as a child; she even got Eren in trouble with his mother for bringing up that he wanted to join the Survey Corps.

However, she got reckless and soon found herself trapped in an alley with no way to climb out, and a Titan approaching her.

Mikasa almost lets the Titan eat her.
