Listen to me, you can’t fix people.
Your love won’t make him stop hating his father
and your devotion won’t cure her of her childhood.
All you can do is be there, violets sprouting out
from your ribs, acceptance on your lips, your own
wounds still bleeding and all you can do is be there
and sometimes that’s enough, sometimes that’s everything.

Eeeeeeeeeh I can see why some people may think this. However, the ‘plot device’ really is part of the actual plot where they actually tell Levi’s team to protect Eren. Which ended up fucking him over too. Eren is already a Titan Shifter which gives him regenerating powers, increasing his survival and as a main character will most likely be alive regardless if Levi is there or not. Levi also ends up going out of commission from killing Titans for some time in the manga and is now just being a spy of sorts (if I remember correctly). If anything, he still has a lot of room to grow though, that’s for certain.

See, I totally understand what’s being said about Eren here. He’s a bit nuts in his own way aka not your typical goody two shoes hero. However, all the characters fall in a gray area where their morals and goals range from selfishness to bloodlust to other things which means his sort of ‘darker’ thoughts don’t stick out as much in comparison.
As of now, his personality has been revolving mainly around the bloodlust and need of freedom. His personality kept shifting between KILL TITANS to SAVE MY FRIENDS GRR attitude. It gets old after a while. At least for me that is how I see it.
I did like it when Levi showed up and Eren seemed to have calmed down a bit though. I was really glad he didn’t get all haughty and stubborn with his superiors something I really appreciated so I’m falling back into caring about him again.

I will have to agree on this. I am basing this off the Anime and how far I’ve gotten in the manga and so far she hasn’t developed much. I think she’s really cool and a good edition to fictional female characters but she sorta falls back by being overprotective over the main character. It feels really restraining of her potential. I suppose this could be a genuine character flaw where she only seems to care about Eren (and Armin) and gets blind sighted for blood on whoever hurts them, but even then that is *all* she’s been kinda doing.
I’m expecting this to change later on though. There is quite many characters in AoT so making room for them probably requires leaving some characters to sit around.. I still do prefer Mikasa over many other female characters, but I guess I have higher expectations for AoT. XD
PS. Someone should do a drinking game for every time she says Eren in the Anime.
