The attack of the Titans The final season has blurred the lines between good and evil in the show’s history more than ever, with the idea of who the good guys and bad guys are all the more blurred. For those who might not be aware of the latest installments, Eren Jaeger has enacted a new plan in which he plans to use the power of the Founding Titan to stop the power of the Titans via a disturbing new method. The battle lines have never been so blurred and this is the most interesting period of Hajime Isayama’s series.
When season four began, Studio MAPPA’s animated adaptation did the unthinkable and gave viewers a deeper look into the lives of the Marleyians, the race that had tormented the inhabitants of Paradise Island for so long. While most viewers thought this nation was one of pure evil, sending a constant stream of Titans to the residents within the walls, it was revealed during the fourth season that they were struggling with their own issues and thought they were on the right. Although they are certainly not saints, there is something to be said for the innocents who do not want to participate in the war that is brewing between all parties.
Reiner was originally thought to be a traitor who had no sympathy for his comrades, but this season gave us an Armored Titan who continues to crumble thanks in part to the heinous acts he has committed over the course of the series and to the friends who died as a result of them. While he was first portrayed as a villain when he revealed his true identity to Eren and the scouts, times have changed and his character has been enriched by it.
On the other side of the coin, the fourth season changed Eren Jaeger from a young soldier in conflict to a man who is not afraid to kill innocent people for the good of his people. With his sneak attack on Marley, countless people have fallen under his giant feet, and even his own Eldians have been swept away in his latest scheme, as he gathers his followers like a cult and strives to realize his vision of the world. Eren has become much less of a hero and much more of an anti-hero, if not an outright villain, in the case of season four, creating great storytelling.
Members of the Scout Regiment, such as Armin, Mikasa, Hange, and Levi, have mostly continued to stand on the side of good, but certainly have blood on their hands from their constant wars throughout their lives. . Now faced with an impossible choice of whether or not to support Eren’s mad plan, the final season of The attack of the Titans is about to dive into extremely controversial territory as it nears its finale.
