“Shingeki no Kyojin”: Why did a “Gothic Mikasa” and “Nerd Armin” appear in chapter 78?

For reasons we already know, chapter 78 of “Shingeki no Kyojin” it blew our minds, both us and Eren Jaeger himself.

However, fortunately for us, ours can return to its position on the basis that all the doubts that have remained after seeing the episode are answered.

One of the most frequent questions are those that are directly related to the memories of the founding titan, that is, to all that visual bombardment that we witnessed once Zeke grabbed his brother’s head.

For the same reason, we will answer them below, showing you why we very lightly saw a Mikasa Ackerman dressed as a gothic teenager, as well as commenting on a notable nod to the life of its author, Hajime Isayama.

Memorias en el episodio 78 de “Shingeki no Kyojin”

When the time came when we saw the animated memories, many of us didn’t know if we were watching the final chapters of “Evangelion” or “Attack on Titan” due to how weird, subjective and interpretable everything was.

One of the most curious images was that of a quite realistic and contemporary version of Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert, who appeared with gothic and nerdy looks, respectively.

And no, we are not saying this to throw adjectives at random, but they really are, since those versions they are real and created by Isayama himself.

Said avatars of the characters of “Shingeki no Kyojin” belong to one of the first official spin off based on the protagonists of the anime, the one called “Shingeki no School Caste” and it is a manga.

Here, both Eldians and Marleyans put aside the war to live in a more contemporary world and go to a school Very stereotypical of American musical comedies. And, as you will notice, Mikasa is a goth teenager and Armin is the college nerd.

Saunas? Yes!

Another very striking moment of those that came to light after activating the coordinate was a painting where you see several characters in a sauna.


Logically, that is impossible in the “Shingeki no Kyojin” universe, but not in ours.

That It is due to a cover that Isayama himself presented as a reference to what he will do once he finishes working on the series, since many times he said that he will dedicate himself to having his hot springs business.
