now I can hate myself in two languages
ok so I found this on 4chan, so I don’t know how reliable it is, but apparently Isayama and Araki (the director of the anime) had a little interview. Someone posted a few translations but this one in particular piqued my interest;
Q: Who is the shingeki who left a deep impression?
Araki: Armin. Because he grows from weak to strong, but the strongness is not necessary a happy thing. Armin’s seiyuu was sad about it.
Isayama: We talked a lot about Armin’s growth.
Isayama: The story might not end with Armin being good friends with Eren.
Thoughts?? Although the development to that point would be rather interesting, I think it would be overall rather sad… I love the trio and it’s weird to imagine Armin and Eren not being best buds anymore…
Well sometimes childhood friends grow apart and it’s sad but it happens
Though in snk that just might mean some heavy emotional damage rather than just gradual drifting apart
Also, I’m just hoping he’s not smirking and thinking “they’re not gonna be good friends because they’re gonna be DEAD”
