the phrase “curiosity killed the cat” is actually not the full phrase it actually is “curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back” so don’t let anyone tell you not to be a curious little baby okay go and be interested in the world uwu
Blood is thicker than waterThe blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.
Meaning that relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.
AKA, Mikasa Ships Them: The Post
I’m kidding—this is actually a post about Mikasa concerning the parallelism between Mikasa Ackerman and Historia Reiss, their growing connection as a result, and how it’s best reflected in Mikasa’s understanding of Krista’s relationship with Ymir—but hey, I am 100% behind the sentiment.
MANGA SPOILERS incoming, meaning that everything up to 52 is considered fair game under the cut.
The best writing on SNK relationships EVER.
Answering this earlier would have been helpful in so many ways. Sorry about that.
Friendship power makes the world go round, so I love just about every instance of casual character interaction for everyone in the series. Favorite…
I think I’d have to say Connie and Historia.
A lot of that comes from the trio they make together with Ymir (along with bringing Sasha in for the full quartet), but if we’re talking very favorite, Connie and Kristoria rank a notch above any combination all by themselves.
This was not the outcome I expected, and I actually spent a few hours wondering if this was some sort of clever way to avoid having to write about an extra person.
Then a particular set of panels came to mind, and here we are.
(Pictures. Pictures everywhere. …Followed by way too much Historia analysis hijacking everything.)
SNK friendship! <3
Though to be fair, the more deserving target of my hatred would be the entire concept of monthly series. It’s so remarkably inconsiderate. Why can’t artists just wish a chapter into existing every day? That seems like it would be a more satisfying system, overall.
Except then we wouldn’t get the glorious anticipation, so that’s probably out, too.
Ah well. One of the side benefits of writing this up so late is that I at least don’t have to hold out for an entire month before there’s more.
I don’t hate plot chapters, but I love ghostmatyr’s writing here :)
This number appears at the first pages of “A choice with no regrets” x
It remind me of something, so I went to the Shingeki manga and I read this page.
DON’T TELL ME MIKASA AND LEVI ARE FAMILY OMG
I TOLD YOU GUYS SOMETHING ABOUT LEVI ACKERMAN AND THIS IS WHAT I MEANT FUCK YOU GUYS
But so far we didn’t see any scar/marking on Levi’s wrist, right??? Argh when will Isayama gives us the complete backstory of Levi and Kenny Ackerman…
But it’s good to pin down the year Levi joins the Survey Corps: only a year before the breach of the Wall. Which probably also means he was in his late 20s.
