Pop Culture Theories — Did Annie REALLY have feelings for Eren?
Honestly, I prefer him not having feelings for Annie. I'm sick of female (Reason why I love the relationship between Eren and Historia, too.). So, at first he had hard time believing that Annie was the female Titan, was it because she was his fellow comrade or was there something. So theres tons of fan theories and head cannons and aus that say Annie likes Eren or they have some sort of relationship, but none really.
Finally, I am not responsible if you are offended by what I have to say about Eren and Mikasa's relationship: Some History Lets begin with a brief review of Eren and Mikasa's history, starting from the moment they met.
At the age of 9, Eren saved Mikasa from human traffickers by stabbing two out of three of her kidnappers to death while Mikasa killed the third one before he can harm Eren. With her parents dead, Mikasa left her small home in the mountains to live with Eren and his family in Shinganshina. During the time she lived with Eren inside Shinganshina, she protected Eren from local bullies, helped Carla with house chores and befriended Armin, who was already friends with Eren for some time prior.
It's important to note that Eren and Mikasa were both about 9 years old when the Colossal Titan broke down the wall, so the time Mikasa spent living with Eren and his family was a little less than a year.
After the fall of Wall Maria, Mikasa, Eren and Armin worked in a landfill until they enrolled as members of the th Training Corps and practically have done everything together since. In fact, there are many female and arguably male haha characters that Eren could have a romantic interest in, including, most notably, Mikasa.
However, my argument is that as of Chapter 95, Eren does not hold any romantic feelings for Mikasa. My main reasoning behind this stems from how Eren's interactions with Mikasa are depicted in the manga. First, Eren is constantly annoyed with her devotion and dedication to him.
Hey there! — Do you think Eren had some feelings for Annie?
These feelings probably stem from the fact that he doesn't like to be babied like a child or a be treated like a little brother. In addition, Eren wants to take care of himself and others and to fight like the strong solider he wants to be, but Mikasa acts as a reminder that he just isn't strong enough to survive on his own in this world.
In fact, Eren has always been a very independent person and he constantly tries to defeat his enemies on his own, despite the fact that he is simply not strong enough to take them down without the help of his friends, most notably Mikasa.
Eren, excited about the fact that he is one step closer to being independent from Mikasa Mikasa looking sadden by the realization that Eren wants to be independent from her Secondly, Isayama has stated somewhere before in the abyss of interviews that Eren thinks of Mikasa as a "motherly" figure. This helps explain many of Eren's feelings and actions towards the way Mikasa's acts towards him, because no one quite enjoys being nagged on by your mom or mom-friend. Yes, I'm sure Eren appreciates Mikasa and everything she does for him, but at the same time, her constant need to watch over every little thing he does is annoying.
I don't have much evidence of this, but the way Eren treats and thinks of Mikasa is not the way a traditional male Shounen protagonist thinks and treats his love interest. He doesn't idolize her or even really In fact, Eren not thinking about Mikasa is what solidifies my analysis of why Eren doesn't like Mikasa romantically. Sure he cares about her well-being and sometimes goes out of his way to protect her, but does Eren ever stop to think about Mikasa when he's in a dire situation?
Eren, who is on the brink of "death", recalls his feelings of revenge and his dreams of seeing the outside world whom he associates with Armin However, while Eren may feel like Mikasa is an overprotective and overbearing mom friend, it is evident that he still views Mikasa as a close friend.
- Attack On Titan
In fact, I would say that Eren loves Mikasa very much platonically and that she has a special place in his heart because she is arguably the most important woman in his life since the death of his mother and there are many instances of Eren caring about her well-being. Eren desperately attempts to convince the crowd that Mikasa has nothing to do with his current state as a titan shifter Eren showing concern for Mikasa's health Whether or not Eren's feelings will develop into something more romantic is something that is yet to be seen.
The first factor is Mikasa's bloodline. The Ackerman clan was literally bred to devote their lives protecting a "liege". With this in mind, Mikasa's feelings really aren't that hard to believe once you consider that Eren is her liege and she is acting on instincts to protect him.
The second factor is that Eren is the person who saved her life and gave her a reason to keep living after the devastating event she experience as a child. This, pluis the fact when Mikasa was looking for Eren during the battle of Trost, she went to Annie for his wearabouts. Showing that she expects Annie to be aware of where Eren is because they were always tpgether training.
Hes clueless about girls. But I think he did maybe have a LITTLE more feelings then her then just respect, as Mikasa explains that perhaps the reason Eren cant transform to fight him is because of some sort of feelings towards her.
After all, Mikasa has been jealous of Annie before, and we see it during training. So shes testing Annie. Silly in a show like Attack on Titan, but remember theyre all still teenagers, so stuff like this can clearly happen. Also during Eren and Annies fight in the woods, Annie looks clearly upset at the facy Eren was so enraged by her, he transformed just to kill her. But when Eren transforms she looks visibly shaken. Also during the fight, she keeps holding back.
When she killed the Survey Corp members, she crushed them with ease, not even breaking a sweat.
Eren x Annie. Possible?
She tore through every one of them. Yet when she fights Erem, that same speed, precision and deadliness is gone. Eventually she takes out his titan form and captures him, but it took her way longer then we know it could have to take him out. Now for reasons she might not like Eren.
She could have just been teaching him because she finally has a friend who likes fighting and admires her for what she does.
See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
Their relationship could be completely platonic. People saying the reason Annie is crying is because she lost Eren I think its bs. IN the forrest, she almost captured Eren. In Stohess, she almost escaped. She was so close until she was finally brought down by Mikasa.
