Oh, and I probably should’ve prefaced my previous ask with the fact that I personally think Marco just got blindsided by a titan. Additionally, I don’t think Annie was involved, however I think she capitalised on his death. Whether she took his 3dmg while in the vicinity at the time of his death, or during the clean up (before others came along) - I haven’t decided. The reason for asking is cause I’m doing a little sketch on his death and looking for different perspectives. Thanks!
Personally, I don’t think she killed him. Reason being, no shifter other than the Colossal has eaten someone outside of being a berserk, mindless titan. And the Colossal only did it to gain the soldier’s 3DMG. Marco clearly had a bite taken out of him, so that rules out Annie eating him for his 3DMG— in that case, she would have ate him whole.
But he only had a bite taken out of him, so chances are she found him in all the confusion and stripped him of his gear.
I have plenty of favorite characters, but my favorite favorite would be Hange.
And then my favorite ships would be Levihan, Eruhan, YumiKuri, Rivetra, Mike/Nanaba, Connie/Sasha, and Armin/Annie. More or less in that order.
My blog has been mentioned on Reddit?
In itself it’s not that great an accomplishment or anything, but that’s so weird to think about when I only have ~400 followers, lmao.
Wow, I’m going on reddit way more often from now on.
I love tumblr for my favorite ships, but listening to most of the theories consisting of things like ‘why eruri is canon’ or metas about how much Eren and Levi care about eachother gets tiring.
Oh? From /a/, then, maybe? Or dA? Maybe Reddit(though I don’t know if they talk about stuff like AoT there…)?
Maybe that really is the difference, then. Aside from some, tumblr tends to be much more focused on ships and AUs than theories and stuff. And usually if someone just posts a theory, regardless of how incredibly unlikely it is, everyone blindly agrees. So there’s not much thought in a lot of the AoT fandom here…
Maybe this is just mindless babbling…
But after watching the OVA, I went back and read the real Ilse’s journal because I realized that the talking titan seemed as though it was trying to mimic the lines on a titan shifter’s face.
Like I said, maybe it all actually means nothing and it was mindless self-harm, or maybe it was just frustrated at the realization that Ilse isn’t Ymir like he thought… But what if the actions were meaningful? What if he was trying to jog “Ymir’s” memory, or trying to turn human himself?
Really? I’ve never actually heard anyone say it before. Ha, I’m clearly living on the wrong side of tumblr.
This is off-topic from the current conversation and I know I should be writing entire metas instead, but I want you all to know.
That sometimes I laugh about the entirely plausible theory I have, that the Colossal Titan’s steam is actually Bert sweating like usual, and because his skin is so hot, it immediately evaporates and makes scalding-hot steam.
…Wow, how dumb. I’m pretty sure the Boku Tsukkomi routine is not what they act like it is. It’s the same as in CatDog or in Spongebob, with Spongebob and Squidward. It’s just a matter of a moron and a guy who gets frustrated at a moron. The TVTropes page of it even mentions Shawn and Gus from Psych, and Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street.
Notice how I’m pointing out American examples. Because if they insult Japan for just ‘adhering to a stock formula,’ they’re insulting America, as well. We do the same thing. They’re clearly talking about things they know very, very little about. Or they’re just doing it to seem edgy again…
In regards to the ‘show, don’t tell’ thing, it’s clear they’re just used to the type of American media where characters do shit without thinking about or explaining them, and haven’t watched/read many things from Japan. Because just like Japan has media that has very little telling like Death Note or Attack on Titan has(think, for example, Yostuba), plenty of American media DOES have it. I suppose they’re just not used to Psychological Thrillers or anything more than things that don’t just go ‘BOOM BOOM’ ‘UH, OH, GOD, YES’ or ‘LOL.’
Right? Like, it’s true America makes live action movies like no other. And it’s also true that anime/manga as we know it is said to have been inspired by Disney.
But otherwise? We’re newbies to entertainment. The Japanese were entertaining before the first American settlers’ grandparents’ grandparents’ grandparents were even a glimmer in their fathers’ eyes.
…Also, entertainment from the early 2000s were fucking great. Mean Girls was awesome.
