I want to talk about this scene, specifically these two pages.
Eren is having a very intimate, heartfelt moment with Mikasa-his only family left, but he’s also looking at Armin, his best friend in the entire world. This really shows how close Eren is to the both of them. He may love them differently, Mikasa as a sister, and possibly as a romantic partner, and Armin as his closest friend. But he doesn’t love either of them more.
Love isn’t stronger when it’s family or friends for romantic partners. Love is love and no matter who you share it with, and it’s important.
Just, the fucking relationship between these three man. They will do anything for each other. Eren almost died for Armin. Mikasa kept Armin strong when they thought Eren had died. Armin was the one to calm Eren down and to keep him going during the Trost Arc. Mikasa never gave up hope on saving Eren during Female Titan Arc. And here they are, Eren and Mikasa facing the titan that killed their mother, Armin almost about to be eaten while holding onto an injured Jean, and their love for each other is keeping them going.
