like i think the main mistake a lot of people make w/snk is assuming that you are supposed to really be behind Eren Jaeger, that you are supposed to believe in his motives and cause, and therefore take issue w/him being a big dumb shonen hero—but i think that’s honestly wrong.
i think we are supposed to be terrified of Eren Jaeger.
i mean Eren certainly is sympathetic at many junctures (his mother’s death, his frustration with the corrupt system he lives under, his genuine grief and regret over the loss of Levi’s squad, etc.) but overall his philosophies and attitudes toward the world are REALLY UNSETTLING. like you can chalk a lot of his problems up to really terrible trauma but he also committed premeditated murder when he was 9 years old before any of the shit we see in the story happens to him. he killed two men and convinced Mikasa to kill another and he felt absolutely no remorse or unease about it. of course we know that overall this saved Mikasa’s life and his own, but the narrative doesn’t really let it pass as a “good” thing—Mikasa was obviously hugely traumatized in that moment, and later when Eren is being examined in his trial, the murders are brought up as a sign of him being mentally unstable, which is REALLY REASONABLE given the context that he suddenly can turn into a giant monster.
his complete unflinching desire to EXTERMINATE ALL TITANS is a driving force in the series but i think we are almost to the point where that is really going to be flipped over on him—to the audience, it already has. titans are obviously linked with humans in an as-yet unspecified way, so we know that it’s very possible and likely that Eren’s rage against these monsters is probably going to come back to bite him—has he been killing transformed people who simply can’t control themselves? like Eren’s ultra-violence and the other titan-shifters point to a bigger and in my opinion pretty obvious plot arc of “who is the real monster” that is being woven throughout the series. all the titan-shifters are shown to have really complicated morality systems (Annie’s father issues and her inability to kill Armin, Ymir’s devotion to Christa, Reiner’s dissociation due to his extreme guilt, Bertholt’s…well ok Bert hasn’t had as much exploration but his falsely timid nature suggests there’s a lot going on there.) Eren’s black-and-white morality sets him apart and is almost certainly a set-up for him to take a fall, so honestly i think interpreting him as just a jerk-ass shonen hero of the narrative is incorrect. he’s not the “hero” in the sense that he’s always right and the story follows and agrees with him. i honestly think he’s being set up as a more classical hero who’s going to have his big tragic flaw come back and bite him straight in the ass.
