I have to disagree with the previous anon, I mean I get why people think that ereri can't be canon. That is a possibility. But look at all the official art, The ereri novel created by Isayama himself plus all the hints in the manga. Why would they all exist if there wouldn't be a chance? I think that there is a chance that it will become canon, I just don't know how big it is. We need to believe 🙏
Anonymous said: I’m aware that Ereri will never be canon, and at this point, has to be one of the most sunken ships in this fandom. It pains me to admit this sad truth and I don’t like to be pessimistic about my otp because I love Ereri so much it hurts. But I have to face reality. BUT. I would AT LEAST want Isayama to make them interact more. I would beg for one more touching moment between them. Shake hands, give each other a friendly hug Idk just let them PLEASE TALK because they never do. :’(

I had several asks regarding the same thing both here and on my main, so I’m putting them together. This seems to be a popular subject atm :P. (There was a 4th one but I won’t post it since it wasn’t appropiate for this blog, but if you read this anon, this response works for you too.)
Well, like I was saying the other day, this shows how the opinions are divided lol.
But that’s alright. There’s people who want to believe it can be canon. And the possibility is still there. As long as they are both alive, there’s a chance!
And there’s also people who think that it’s not possible for a manga like this to make any ship canon. We have to always remember what kind of manga SnK is, and it’s definitely not a romance focused one. And that point of view is perfectly valid too.
And what do I think? Well… it depends on the day. Some days when I re-read or re-watch their interactions, and all the canon stuff, visual novel, interviews, etc… I think it might definitely be possible for them to get somewhere. But then, I also am up to date with the recent chapters, interviews with Isayama saying he wants to end the manga as soon as possible, and things like that… and I think that there might not be enough time for it, or simply Isayama won’t take the time to focus on something like that. I really don’t know!
On top of that I don’t want to be dissapointed, so I always try to not expect anything to not have my heart broken later, especially with ships.
But I have to disagree with the statment saying that Ereri is one of the most sunken ships in this fandom… I don’t see it like that at all! In canon, they’re still in good terms even if they went through a very difficult situation, and in fandom, is still the most popular ship!
The only problem is that because of how the manga has progressed, it’s been a long time since they had any meaningful interaction. And if we look at the anime, we have the same situation but in reverse: it’s going to be a while until their next moments get animated. So right now things are a bit slow in that sense. But trust me, once we get to the good stuff, the fandom will be all over it again ^^.
But well, whatever it happens, remember that it’s not good to obsess about any ship being canon. What makes Ereri great, it’s not only what happens in the manga. I’m very thankful to Isayama for creating this amazing story and characters! But the fandom made them even better, with their stories, art, headcanons, etc. The Ereri we love is going to keep existing no matter what happens on Isayama’s manga.
Like I was saying to a friend the other day, SnK is just a story, like any other. But there are thousands of stories out there where Eren and Levi are together and happy, really good stories! The only difference is that they’re not official, but at the end of the day, does that even matter that much? Both are just stories. As long as they bring you happiness, they’re as good as any official stuff for me ;).
