ITS ALL PART OF FARSE. DO NOT BELIEVE EREN YAEGERS LIES, HE IS THE TRUE BAD GUY OF SNK HE WANTS TO EAT EVERYONE OR SOME SHIT LIKE THAT

I’m still somewhat combating a cold and I needed a laugh right now. Thanks, anon!

It just kind of strangely really occured to me even if it’s really obvious. Eren, uh, kind of saved Armin’s life back in chapter 4 and it kind of was the same logic, too.

Eren has always been grateful to Armin for giving him his dream. In that moment of rashness when Eren placed Armin above everyone else, Eren saw Armin as the best of what humanity could be, much better than he is because he has failed, he has fallen, but in his eyes Armin hasn’t. Armin didn’t let all the bad get better of him, like Eren has. Armin is brave, Armin has dreams and Armin has done a lot for the benefit of humanity.

I mean, I think a lot of the ocean talk in the end is redundant, but I still really love the moment in chapter 84 where Eren straight-up says he only thought of revenge and forgot their dreams compared to Armin when his mother died, showing how he’s put that behind. It really shows how far he has come.
