Is it weird that even tho Levi is my fave character I want him to die soon?
Hello Anon, no I don’t think it’s weird at all, if it’s any comfort, I feel that way myself. Apart from Hanji, Levi has lost everyone he ever loved or cared for; his mother, his closest friends and surrogate family, his Squad, countless soldiers, Kenny, and finally Erwin; his commander, his leige, the one man who Levi chose to follow and fight for, the one man he dedicated his heart and soul to. Even by the grim standards of the SnK universe, the sheer scale of loss that Levi has suffered is shattering.
Erwin carved a place in the world, in the Survey Corps, for Levi, and Levi alone. He gave him direction, purpose and a path to follow. Now Erwin is gone, the flame of hope snuffed out, and it’s no wonder that Yams has said that Levi is left “drifting” without purpose, with “nothing to do”, unable to fulfil his vow.
On the one hand I would love Levi to live on in peaceful retirement, to see Erwin’s memory and sacrifice honoured as it should be, but it appears that he has already been forgotten. It just seems too cruel that Levi should live on to suffer alone in endless limbo. Grief is a heavy burden for one man to bear alone, even if that man is Humanity’s Strongest. Let him rest.
