Eren is a fucking terrible main character. He’s so stupid and worthless that it’s a wonder he made it through the basic training. It makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER that Mikasa is interested in him. She needs a real man—someone who will treat her right. Someone handsome. Someone like Jean. I think Jean should be the main character because he’s better than Eren in every conceivable way. He’s taller, he’s smarter, he’s way better looking, and he can take Eren in a fight. On top of that, he has so much depth. He’s the lone voice of reason in an insane world. And his face! His gaze is dreamy and smoldering and his lips are full and kissable. It won’t be long until Mikasa realizes she is in love with
In closing, Jean is the smartest, coolest, and most handsome guy in Shingeki, and he should be the protagonist.
This speaks to me so much, and is probably the most important part, but let me tell you, I like this bit more:
What would be great, I think, is if I could hire some kind of old-timey town crier to precede me into any room I enter, shouting “Lesbian coming! Lesbian coming this way!” and possibly ringing some kind of bell. Then everyone would already know before our interaction commenced, and they could be pleasant or horrible as the spirit moved them, but at least we’d be communicating from a place of honesty and I wouldn’t have to worry about whether I’ll inadvertently reveal myself.
