Though of the day! Attack on Titan!

Thought of the day! Attack on Titan!

Please note that this post does include spoilers so if you haven’t watched Attack on Titan and are planning to…. DON’T READ THIS UNTILE AFETR YOU’VE WATCHED IT. I just finished watching attack on titan. Okay so if you’ve watched it you know how they all find out about Eren’s titan body? If yes you know how they also make him undergo a brutal trial that might end up with him dead?! I can’t believe there even thinking of killing Eren! I get that they are scared but seriously, stop clam down and think for a minute killing him won’t do any good because he’s their only chance at beating the titans. He’s the only one that can do what they all dream of doing. Stopping the titans. So what he can make and control a titan body, at the end of the day he’s still one of them, he fought and trained along side them, he fought for them. Now they think they can kill him because of something he didn’t know about! Because of something he can’t control! Unbelievable! They can’t. They need him even if they won’t admit it they need him and they need him bad.  Anyway that’s my thought of the day.

  1. I agree with you, but the series is excellent in portraying the ugly and dark side of humanity. Fear of the unknown is one of humanity’s weaknesses that the series constantly portrays. Because Eren suddenly transformed into one of those Titans, the people living comfortably within the walls’ centre panic because there’s suddenly a Titan living among them. Of course, we hate them for this because we have become attached to the main protagonist of the show. But if you think about it, what if these are all real. You have never seen a Titan, you have been living within the Walls’ centre, letting the Survey Corps battle the Titans by themselves because it’s their duty and you’re paying the tax that are supporting them. Then suddenly you discover that there’s a human who turned into a Titan. Fear overcomes you and you won’t be able to think about anything else, much less think about using this Titan shifter as a weapon against the Titans.

    I think this is one of the reasons why this series resonate with a lot of people because it reveals our weaknesses as human beings. We want to deny them, but if we really think about it, it’s our nature to fight against each other and eliminate those who threaten us.

    • I agree with you on that. This anime has done an excellent job of showing us the darker side of humanity. It’s also in human nature to get rid of threats but also to stay safe. Yes we tend to want to destroy anything that could harm us. But we don’t want to get rid of what could protect us. In my opinion when Eren was going through the trial they wanted to get rid of him because they saw him as a monster and danger to what they stood for. But they also began to see what an advantage having him around could be. Despite the fact that they were scared and afraid in the end they put it all aside and did the right thing.

      • Indeed. They were just too overcome with fear to recognize right away the benefit of Eren as a Titan shifter. It’s because most of them belong to the Military Police and many haven’t even seen a real Titan, that they don’t really know the danger firsthand. Well, in the end, it’s thanks to Erwin & Levi—especially Levi—that Eren survived that trial.
