Why does Mikasa Ackerman love Eren Jaeger

Will Eren and Mikasa end up together? Or will Eren Historia marry?

Romance in Attack on Titan usually takes a back seat. Even so, there were romantic overtones to various relationships within the manga.

Most of them enjoy the luxury of subtext and are far more complex to pigeonhole. So popular debates among fans are:Does Eren like Mikasa? Will Eren Historia marry?

SPOILER ALERT: Manga spoilers ahead. Go on, they are worth it!(Don't listen to me!)

1. Highlight article

Yes, Eren loves Mikasa as she is definitely the most important woman in his life after his mother. Despite this,Eren and Historia can get married - more out of duty and commitment as love.

2. Mikasa and Eren

For yearsNaysayers have reduced Eren and Mikasa's relationship to that of unrequited love.

On the surface, it is very easy to fall prey to such a thought.Mikasa obviously seems to be in love with Eren since protecting her from the robbers. and Eren has shown no affection similar to that of the countermovement.

For the first few years, Eren seems to be annoyed by Mikasa's maternal nature and hopes to move away from her arrogant shadow.While Mikasa just wants to be close to an unsuspecting Eren.

I. Mikasa's importance

However, must alsoThe manga cemented Mikasa and Armin as the most important people in Eren's lifeespecially if the heirs of the attacking Titan are found to have access to the heirs' past and future memories.

This fact makes perfect sense when we consider Eren Kruger's quote to Grisha. "To save Mikasa and Armin".

That will be revealed laterEren was largely the cause of Grisha's actions align it with a predetermined event or whatever Eren's plan is. Hence, it is very likely thatEren's drive is to protect Mikasa.

II. Does Eren hate Mikasa?

It's Chapter 112 that, oddly enough, makes you rethink its dynamics when Eren claims so He always hated Mikasa.

Eren claims thatMikasa's affection stems from her power to awaken the Ackerman clan that makes him her main focus of affection.

Again, on the superficial level, it seems like he hates her. But in chapters 120 and 121, Eren's motivations are finally revealed, and We see a delicate or abandoned look on Eren's face as he sees the memory of him wrapping the scarf around Mikasa.

This proves thatEren wants to free Mikasa and obviously doesn't really hate her, noHis motives are driven by a deep sense of love. One who is always on the lookout for her and does what is best for her.

III. Eren's real feelings

Hajime Isayama claims that this is Mikasa's character developmenther separation from Eren. The scarf is a symbol of their mutual protection relationship -Eren used to claim he would wrap the scarf around her as many times as she wantsand reveals that he always wants to protect her.

In chapter 123 we get a glimpse of Mikasa's perspective and she relates an incident that defines their relationship.Before Eren becomes a villain, he asks Mikasa: "What am I to you?".Eren's expression in the moment reflects how vulnerable he is in the moment.

In response, Mikasa is nervous and says that he is a family. She later checks to see if it was the correct answer.

Isayama then shows a plaque specially for Mikasa and Eren, who sleep with touching heads after a night of drinking with the Survey Corps.

The wider panel of the Survey Corps is asleepis only tailored to Mikasa, Eren and Armin.This emphasis is not pointless. Isayama - who usually does not show such moments - tries to convey the meaning of their relationship in this chapter.

This clearly shows that Eren loves Mikasa - just not in the way that youth romanticism defines it.But as a love that drives you, a love that requires spiritual support,a love that transcends the trivialities of puppy love.

IV. My judgment

Eren and Mikasa have always tried to get along, but at this moment they reach an agreement. Mikasa's admission would have made it even harder for Eren to do his duty. So her answer was the correct answer.

The relationship between Eren and Mikasa was defined by their need to protect one another from the atrocities of the world. They really love each other.

Isayama was always against the idea of ​​fate; Therefore, it is unlikely to be an endgame. But whether they end up together is trivial for history - it is what they share that remains holistic.

Their relationship has a deep complexity that links family, love, mutual support, duty, sacrifice, and development

3. Eren and Historia

Eren's relationship with Historia was a major focus in the argument against Eren's love for Mikasa. The possibility of a love blossom between Eren and Historia is there, and it's not a far-fetched idea either.

Eren and Historia are two people who are annoyed about their role as "hero" or "good girl"". They seem to have good chemistry and honesty that stems from their circumstances.

If there's someone who really knows Eren's plan, except Floch,it is possibly Historia. Both share the pain of their predetermined fate. Eren and Historia begin to bond after being kidnapped and then fans began to see the tremendous potential between the two.

Their gradual friendship even manages to arouse jealousy in Mikasa.However, the relationship between Eren and Historias reflects a friendship between two confidants. That's not to say that there can't be romance between them in the future - they both serve as perfect candidates for potential love.

At present, however, they are unlikely to treat each other like that.It is not Historia that drives Eren, nor is his love for her that dwarfs anything else for him. She just remains his possible partner in crime.

I. Historias pregnancy

The revelation of Historia's pregnancy and the final tablet of a man holding a baby seem to have given her mailers more strength.

The military's plan to let Historia Zeke eat is the main motivation behind Historia's pregnancy. In all honesty, it's very likely that the father is Eren and not the farmer, but that doesn't mean Eren and Historia are romantically involved.

The events that have occurred so far have shown that Eren is ready to do his duty against all odds. Historia's pregnancy is a semblance of this duty, which prevents Zeke from being fed to her.

There is no concrete evidence that Eren actually shows romantic feelings towards Historia and vice versa. It seems to be an exaggeration of their great respect and admiration for one another.

In turn Eren may eventually marry Historia if the baby is actually his, but it's unlikely to be out of love.

II. The last panel

The last tablet of the man holding a baby shocked many fans.

Two theories surround it -One of them underscores Eren's possibility of marrying Historia. The first theory is that Grisha is holding onto Eren and telling him that he is free, which agrees with Carla's quote that he is special because he was born into the world.

Thenon-linear sequence of events and the meaning of memories can very well allow Attack on Titan to end with a memory of the past - Eren as a baby.

Thesecond theory is that ofEren is holding his and Historia's baby after he achieved his goal. It is entirely possible.

However, must alsoThe lack of Eren and Historias moments, especially those that led to her pregnancy and her absence from this panel, clearly shows that she doesn't have as much meaning in Eren's life as fans could hope.

From the last chaptersIt is evident that the woman in Eren's head is, and likely always will be, Mikasa
