My heart breaks for just about every single character in this series, but none more so than these three. They have seen the deaths of countless friends and comrades, because we know that the last ones standing, have seen everyone else fall.
Erwin commanded and led them to their deaths. Soul crushing sacrifices all for the sake of humanity. Only to realise that fighting for humanity, actually meant fighting against humanity.
Hanji subjected these titans to various forms of torture and experimentation, all for the sake of research to benefit humanity’s war on titans. Only to realise that these very titans could’ve been someone’s mother, lover, or friend.
And Levi, whose strength, talent and definition lies in killing titans and being humanity’s strongest soldier, is now saddled with the extra burden of not only the guilt of his fallen comrades, but also this heavy realisation that his titan kill count could now possibly translate to his human kill count. Humanity’s strongest soldier could now be considered, albeit unintentionally, humanity’s strongest killer.
They offered up their lives, their bodies, their souls and their hearts, for this?! That’s just too cruel
