Shingeki no Kyojin is one of the most popular anime and manga in the world. This work created by Hajime Isayama surprised more than one due to a witty plot and full of memorable moments. Despite the innumerable points in favor of the franchise, the truth is that the characters of Attack on Titan They were key to the success of shonen.
While some characters like Levi, They were, Mikasa, Erwin and even Armin are the favorites of many followers, there are others who, unfortunately, did not run with the same luck and lacked a great development within the story.
Ymir is one of the Scout Corps members who had a rather nostalgic past. After impersonating Ymir Fritz (the founder of the Titans) and being turned into a Titan, she spent more than 60 years wandering mindlessly through the isla Paradis.
His role onstage deepened in the anime’s third season, when he revealed his true identity to his peers. However, the surprise was little when he decides to leave the island and go as hostage to Reiner and Bertolt to protect Historia. Later, it is known that she dies after being eaten by another titan.
Although the reason that led Ymir to take this initiative was for an act of love towards History, the truth is that Shingeki no Kyojin He showed in this character how crude life can be about the fate of some people.
The story of Reiss
The evolution of History throughout Attack on Titan is to rescue. When she first appeared as Krista Lenz, she was considered one of the underdog in her group. But, by forming a bond with Ymir, the warrior was able to realize her true worth and made herself known to the world as the illegitimate daughter of Rod Reiss.
After revealing herself as History, she decided to live in freedom and without ties because of her family’s last name. However, the end of this character is one of the bitterest of shonen, since the opposite happened to what she wanted: she became queen of Paradis and had a son as part of a government plan.
Although the warrior made several changes as queen and decided to support the orphaned children, her desire to taste freedom was undoubtedly diminished.
Considered one of Shingeki no Kyojin’s most hated, Floch is a key character in the franchise. He is the one who leads the Jaegeristas and who does not hesitate to expose the defects and ‘mistakes’ of the protagonists.
His short participation on stage showed that he does not mind following a demon (Eren Jaeger) in order to reestablish his nation that for so many years was condemned.
If it is about the most criticized characters, Gabi takes the crown. Although many fans resent him for having murdered Sasha Blouse, the minor is a clear reflection that the chain of hatred and revenge only leads to misfortune.
Like Eren, Gabi is impulsive and reckless. In addition, he is capable of protecting his own at all costs. However, upon reaching the island and living with his apparent enemies, he realized that not everything is what he had been led to believe, so he decides to change his perspective.
On more than one occasion, Isayama has confessed that Jean is his favorite character and it is to be understood. As Marco mentioned in one scene, Kirschtein is not very strong or genius, but he has a great ability: to consider the weakest.
Over the seasons, Jean has grown into one of the more mature characters on Attack on Titan, and despite the painful circumstances she has had to face, she has stood firm not to act with a grudge. This is demonstrated when he had the opportunity to choose Gabi’s death, but did not.
