When they’re young and naive, friendship blossoms easily between Eren Jaeger and Armin Arlert. But, as time passes, feelings begin to shift. Eren finds himself dating his sister’s best friend, while Armin can’t quite shake the thought that it should be him Eren is dating. After years of pining and fruitless hoping, Armin finally comes clean about his crush on the day of their high school graduation. Time is not on the boys’ side and once summer vacation ticks to a close Eren is shipped off to Army Basic Training while Armin finds himself furthering his school career. Distance isn’t kind, and, inevitably, the relationship falls apart. Eight years pass slowly without Eren to lean on, but Armin treks on. Though he’s plagued by grief, he continues living the best he can. Slowly, he finds hope in old friends and begins to build himself up as an individual without clinging to the memory of Eren.
That is until Eren’s life violently collides with Armin’s own when he moves into the apartment next door.
Ultimately, Armin is left with his toughest decision thus far, does he fight tooth and nail to stay away from Eren and regain the independence he lost, or does he throw himself back into the fire he just narrowly escaped?
