CLARITY OF PURPOSE
In this beautiful, cruel world
We keep on asking ourselves
Why it was we who survived…
What will we protect
With our strength and with our weakness
If reason and logic no longer hold sway?
Good news, everyone! I’ve been binging on Shingeki no Kyojin like some kind of animu cokehead… Two nights ago I even had a dream that I was Mikasa Ackerman, and I got to fight Mortal Kombat characters and run on top of moving trains and shit. I also kept on trying to get Eren to come cuddle with me and watch old movies, but he didn’t wanna be my little bitch lol
But seriously, I love this freaking show, and when I love a show, fanart is never far behind XD I had originally drawn Eren in the circle behind Mikasa, but the picture ended up looking too cluttered, so I deleted his ass and substituted the key instead. I tend to gravitate toward characters with a strong sense of purpose, so I can’t help but adore these two. Eren’s purpose is to exterminate all dem fugly Titans, and Mikasa’s purpose is to keep Eren from getting killed like a dipshit ;-P I know the internet is much more interested in shipping the gay in this show (how am I not surprised), but I like the JaegerMan
totally just invented that portmanteau dynamic too much not to ship them <3 MIKASA ES SU CASA, EREN
I wonder if Isayama ever hates himself for designing such complicated uniforms though
The text on her sword blades, Ich werde dich beschützen, means “I will protect you” in German. The word in back of her is Jäger, the German word for hunter (and the Germanic spelling of Eren’s last name). The three knives represent the three men who killed her mother and father, and who Eren and Mikasa then killed in turn.

P.S. I was just listening to the opening theme, Guren no Yumiya, when I realized that it’s basically every WWII veteran’s worst nightmare…a song about warfare with German and Japanese lyrics lol
