Do you think the girl from the story book back in Chapter 54, is doing what Historia is about to do?

ghostmartyr:

Given that I have no idea what either one is up to… sure!

The two certainly could be related. The girl in the book has come up twice, counting the extra pages, and she’s the foundation for what Historia made of Krista Lenz.

She was a role they gave me in order to keep me alive… Yeah… a girl from a book I read as a child—I… think?

You like her too, right? Because she’s a kind girl who’s always thinking of others. You should grow up to be like her. This world is full of pain and suffering. That’s why you should be someone everyone can love, who depends on others and on whom others can depend.

Historia doesn’t remember the specifics of who she was reading the book with, or who was offering up interpretations of the book, but she models her new identity after the girl. The book already has some serious significance to Historia’s life, and it’s a pretty easy stretch to say it has more than that.

We don’t get to know what the girl in the book is up to, but whatever she’s doing involves kindness and alleviating the pain of the world. It could be entirely benign, but this is Historia’s first full dream about one of her locked memories. It establishes her tutor, the woman’s ability, and the birth of Krista Lenz, so why stop there?

The ability to block memories has heavy plot significance, and the first time we get to see someone in complete control of it, it has to do with the illegitimate heir of the royal family’s tutor learning a lesson about what can be boiled down to helping the world. And that appears to involve a girl presenting something to what looks like a Titan.

Given the density of plot threads in this particular flashback, it’s not all that difficult to imagine that it’s foreshadowing.

Still, there is the issue of having no idea what the girl in the book is up to and having no idea what Historia’s up to.

If the two scenarios are intended to mirror each other, I think it’s possible Rod Reiss is setting up a perverse echo of the scenario in the book, while Historia’s tutor would have been preparing her for the benevolent version. That interpretation’s based on Eren being in chains and the general discomfort of 61’s ending scene. Nothing about it screams love and kindness. It’s all pain and suffering, and that’s not part of the book’s script. And corruption wouldn’t exactly be a new theme.

I guess that’s a “no” as opposed to a “maybe,” then. The girl and Historia might hold the same position, but I think there’s something more sinister backing Historia’s end.

Thanks for the Ask.

I bought Alice Munroe’s “Too Much Happiness” a year ago for my mother as Christmas present. She hasn’t read it yet, though, because her eyesight’s been deteriorating lately so she let me borrow the book to read it first. 

The first story is called “Dimensions”, which tells the story of a woman who visits her husband in a psychiatric ward. “What dedication!”, one could say. Well, there’s nothing admirable about this sort of dedication once you find out that she’s visiting the very same man who manipulated and controlled her in their entire six years of marriage. The man who killed their three children after a fight and blamed her for their deaths. I kind of regret reading this before going to sleep. The story isn’t entirely hopeless but it’s depressing to read what life can do to people. I’m not even talking about the child murder - what really shocks me is how the woman still depends on her husband in spite of everything he’s done to her. And as if this wasn’t sad enough - it is also her husband who helps her move on with her life at the end of the story.

It’s so ironic it’s perverse.

EHHHH…?!

our amazing royalblueblazehawk looked very hard to mostly no avail, but considering she herself has been missing for even more chapters, I don’t think Ymir has any room to talk

Well…Historia returned in chapter 61 while Ymir…is still MIA ;w;

(via yumikuri-love)

So I went and looked up the raws (big thanks to midnightxdreams for scanning and cleaning this page!) to confirm Suzu’s line about Chitahitsu being one-sided. The line

しかし 恋はその人だけのものだからな

literally translates into “However, love only belongs to a person themself” which is more along the lines of what Hitsugi says about Chitaru’s heart only belonging to Chitaru. The word 片思い for unrequited love was not used, which means that, depending on your interpretation, this relationship might not be one-sided after all and that Chitaru is just being dense as usual.

Also, Hitsugi in the last panel looks adorable (●´□`)♡

Ayy please do number 1 and 15 *^*
lpzwei lpzwei Said:

Send me a number and I’ll write out my top 5 fictional female characters.

1 - Protagonists

  • Binbouda Momiji (Binbougami ga!)
  • Okudaira Akira (Aoi Hana)
  • Chiba Saori (Hourou Musuko)
  • Watashi (Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita)
  • Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)

15 - I want to rescue from their horrible narratives

Ehhhh that’s a really hard question xD I usually don’t finish stories that have a horrible narrative…but I’m going to try nonetheless. (I know there are people who like the series I’m mentioning below but unfortunately they just aren’t my cup of tea)

  • Sumizome Akemi (Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha): The series itself isn’t horrible (on the contrary, it’s fresh and sweet and I like it). I’m just really disappointed with the way the author dealt with Sumizome’s yuri route. It’s like he chickened out halfway through.
  • Tsurumi Chiriko (AnoHana): She was the only character I liked. Menma was okay, too.
  • Yagami Kagami (Sasami-san@Ganbaranai): I don’t know why I watched this series. Probably because of Kagami.
  • Kohinata Miku (Symphogear S1): Miku wasn’t enough to make me watch the sequels.
  • Shannon (Umineko no Naku Koro ni): I don’t even remember what it was about. I also don’t know how the VNs ended. I heard her character turns into something different later on like all Umineko characters *rolls eyes*

Thanks for the ask! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

2, 4, 5, 13, 14 female character ask

2 - Villains: That’s difficult…I don’t remember villains in general. Maybe I’m just watching the wrong series. Only Five from Zankyou no Terror comes to mind (and I don’t even like her lol)…

4 - Magical Girls

  • Sailor Uranus (Sailor Moon)
  • Sailor Neptune (Sailor Moon)
  • Miki Sayaka (PMMM)
  • Do Nakajima Subaru and Tea Lanster from Nanoha count?

5 - Queens/Empresses/Royalty

  • Historia Reiss (SnK)
  • Euphemia Li Britannia (Code Geass)
  • Asseylum Vers Allusia (Aldnoah.Zero)
  • Marceline the Vampire Queen (Adventure Time)
  • Princess Bubblegum (Adventure Time)

13 - I wish had better development/writing

  • Namatame Chitaru and Kirigaya Hitsugi (AnR)
  • Mikasa Ackermann (SnK)
  • Amifumi Inko (Aldnoah.Zero) more screentime, please
  • Takatsuki Yoshino (Hourou Musuko) her character went down the drain in the last chapters. Why do you suddenly like Nitorin back? He has Anna (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ

14 - I wish had better a love interest(s): I’m totally fine with female characters that have no romantic interest in other characters ^^; Sometimes I even think that not having a love interest makes a character more interesting. Or is this question supposed to be “…I wish had a better love interest”? Some girls that deserved better love interests: Shirley Fenette (Code Geass), Sumizome Akemi (Inari, Konkon, Iroha) and Chiba Saori (Hourou Musuko).

Thanks for the ask! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
