attack on titan It’s not a romance anime, but that hasn’t stopped fans from rooting for certain characters to get together, especially when the series hints at feelings between them. And while Eren and Mikasa are the centerpiece viewers flock to, another couple is proving attack on titan The sweetest development of season 4: Gabi and Falco.

attack on titan Season 4 introduces warrior candidates Gabi and Falco, with the two resembling Eren and Mikasa in many ways. Gabi serves as a foil for the anime’s main character, as passionate and angry as he was at his age, simply standing on the opposite side of the conflict.
Meanwhile, Falco does what he can to protect Gabi, just as Mikasa does for Eren. He is even willing to take on the burden of inheriting the Armored Titan in order to give Gabi a longer and happier life. He confessed this during episode 77, “Sneak Attack.” And it was the highlight of the final season so far.

Tensions are high between most of the characters in attack on titan, but Gabi and Falco still support each other. Perhaps that’s why Falco’s confession during “Sneak Attack” proved to be a bright spot in an otherwise dark episode.
With Mikasa questioning whether Eren really hates her and the rest of the characters focused on survival, it was refreshing to get a reminder of why we should support humanity in the first place. Falco and Gabi not only represent the next generation, they also remind us of what is worth fighting for: the people you care about.
Falco’s honesty is also a relief, as many other characters hide their true motivations. Perhaps these two prove that there is hope for the future of this world. Of course, that’s assuming his story doesn’t end in tragedy.
Will ‘Attack on Titan’ season 4 give these two a happy ending?
Just because Gabi and Falco are proving to be the most convincing ship in attack on titan Season 4 does not mean that they will have a happy ending. Anime isn’t exactly known for making life easier for its characters. And Falco drank the wine that contained Zeke’s spinal fluid, meaning he could become a pure titan before the season is over.
That would be a tragic way to wrap up a relatively new story. However, there is no guarantee that this anime will end on a hopeful note. It would be nice to see the next generation of characters overcome the conflict between Paradis Island and Marley. However, only time will tell if that’s in the cards for them.
