Why Eren didn’t kiss Mikasa
So, as I believe all of you know, Season 2 of Snk end a couple of days ago. and ever since I’ve seen a lot of people saying (unederstand screaming) wtf, eren is such a dumb ass idiot why he didn’t kiss Mikasa ! They were talking about this scene
As an ereri shipper I would just answer, because he loves Levi, but that’s the yaoi fangirl answer, my real opinion is different.
So here we go, let’s explain this scene !
To me there is three main reason one is linked to their relationship and the other to the situation
How did Eren see Mikasa ?
When we (the fan) think about Mikasa, we think about the badass soldier with a red scarf and an obsession for Eren. But we have to remember that Eren and Mikasa know each other since childhood. Also the way you meet someone is something really important about your future relationship, and especially for Eren and Mikasa.
On this day Eren see an orphan girl and deciede to offer her the one thing she was deeply missing a family. I think it’s the key of their relationship, she’s like a member of his family to him. He wanted to protect her, that’s the kinda of things a brother will do. He often refered to her like his sister or a member of his family. Also Eren didn’t see Mikasa as a woman for the moment. This isn’t my point of view here but what Isayama said. Eren is still young and didn’t have the time to think’s about girl, because AOT is a cruel world were you didn’t have the time to think about your love interest, that’s my second point.
There is no place in Eren’s life for a romance
Lets’ imagine your Eren. You’re a teenager, who saw his mother being ate by a titan and who swore to destroy them. Then you became a soldier, see many of your comrades die, discover your a titan shifter and some of your friend aswell. Would you have the time to think about love ? Definitly not, your caught in a war, and your world is changing evryday, you just doesn’t have the time for a romance. At this time of the story Eren only thinks about destroying the titan and get his revenge, he isn’t ready for loving someone in this way.
They are surounded by titans, Hannes just died, they are about to die, everyone is about to die. Thats’ why Mikasa confess to Eren beacause she realizes it’s her last chance to do it.
Eren know that as well, he understood what Mikasa doing. But he can’t let that happen. He can’t just kiss her. Because if he do it, he know it will be because it’s the end, it wil mean he gave up. But that’s impossible for Eren he can’t accept to die, especially not when he can finaly get his revenge over the titan that kill his mother.
That’s why he stand up and fight, becauqe even if there is less than 1% of chance for them to survie, Eren want to fight till the end, he refuse to gave up and say goodbye to life.
To sum up here are the main reason :
- Eren see here like a sister
- He’s too immature and doesn’t have a place for love in his life
- kissing her will mean he accept to die, so he refuse and fight instead
That’s my analytic, your free to agree or not, hope you find it interesting ^^
