"What are you so mad about, Eren?": Why Eren Yeager has a lot of good reasons to be mad
“What are you so mad about, Eren?”
This is like the biggest fandom joke ever and I honestly do not understand it. It seems pretty obvious to me why Eren is mad! When Reiner says that fateful line to Eren, it’s supposed to make the reader laugh not because they think - ‘wow, Reiner is right, Eren has no reason to be mad’ - but because the reader will look at the situation Reiner says this line in and go 'what the actual fuck, Reiner, Eren has so much to be mad about’.
That’s the entire manga.
The entire manga presents this world fucked up beyond belief in all sorts of different ways, and then presents us with a protagonist that is all of the fucked up aspects of this world fucking over this one kid. And we expected this character to, what… NOT be mad?
