Dear annoying Ereri bashers,

(and any other bashers that target Rivamika, Erumin or any other ships that involve a pairing with an “underage” character)

This girl, Charle, is 15 years old. She’s from the spin off manga Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall

As you can see by the panel above, her father is taking proposals for an arranged marriage. 

This confirms that within the walls, the age of consent is 15. You are allowed to get married and most likely have children at this age, meaning it’s socially acceptable for a 15 year old to get married and have a healthy sexual life and even start a family.

So to the people who like to harass the Ereri shippers just because it’s illegal in your region, stop being so ignorant and discriminative about other cultural norms. Educate yourself and stop assuming that the age of consent is 18 everywhere, because it certainly is not. To prove this, take a look at this:

Overall, having to be 18 years old is actually in the minority. Many countries (including Europe where this story likely takes place) sees 15-16 year olds in mutual relationships as socially acceptable. If you still aren’t convinced by hard facts, than all I can say is that in the SnK world, 15 is indeed the age of consent and it is not a crime for people of this age to get married and start a family. Now stop harassing the shippers just because you’re ignorant and can’t personally tolerate other cultural norms. It is not our problem that you are xenophobic and can’t accept other countries jurisdictions.

Now take this information and suck on it.

Shingeki no Kyojin Before the Fall Prologue part 1

(In other words Rasuna got her hands on SnK novels and decided to practice her Japanese. And while I’m at it, spam you with short and slow translations~)

The full Prologue can be found HERE

Pages 8&9

A high-pitched sound of a bell resounded through the dark gray sky. The Liberty Bell. This is the name the inhabitants of the Shiganshina District had given to their hanging bell. This bronze hanging bell, located on the top of the 50 meters high Wall Maria, is one of the district’s symbols. While originally meant as a device to prevent disasters, luckily it has never been used in that way to this day.

I just love how Hajime Isayama works with other artists to make official spin-offs of the series. So we can simultaneously follow different tales through another character’s point of view. Still, in the world when humanity lives with the fear of titan.

Together people created Shingeki no Kyojin’s universe.
