Do you like where's Isayama taking the the story?, I knew this isn't the kind of story where everybody gets a happy ending, but to give to your main character cancer and a few more years?Is too much. After everything Eren went trough he can't even get to explore the world like he wanted it. Hell not even Armin. What was the purpose of all the suffering of the character?Rn I'm not seeing the message Isayama wants to communicate, a story not always has to have a happy ending to be important.
I was just talking about this with a friend on twitter and honestly I think this sort of bittersweet reality is perfect. I’m not happy that Eren and Armin will die young, but it fits the theme of “cruel but beautiful”.
The main characters may ultimately get what they want. Eren may rid the world of titans and Armin may live see the ocean. Likewise, Mikasa may eventually get a home and family. But I’ll quote my friend, “They get their dreams, but only for awhile and in a twisted sort of way.”
It’s sad, but it could be so much worse. 90% of the characters we’ve met have gotten so much worse.
We all knew this series wasn’t going to be about happy endings. I’m holding out hope for happy moments. And in the end, that these characters don’t feel that everything was pointless. A pointless ending frightens me far more than a sad one.
