Original Story

  • After the battle against the Female Titan in the forest of giant trees, Levi is wearing a large black jacket that belongs to someone else.

It was not stated who it belonged to, but it seems that other people’s things that a fastidious person can wear is limited …

  • Erwin is unmarried.

  • Erwin’s little angel? ”Ergelchen”.

This was expressed as “Ergelchen(エルゲルヒェン)” in Japanese.
In Eruri vocabulary list(A to G) , I’ve been contemplating “Ergelchen”.

So Levi in the Marle Arc is either same age as Erwin or older than Erwin…. Ugh….

  • (Where will Levi look for motivation to fight now that he lost his irreplaceable person, Erwin?)
    Isayama-sensei: “He’s in a state of limbo. Part of me feels like that he has fulfilled his role in witnessing Erwin’s final moments.

※Yosei (余生) means like, the rest of one’s life (after raising kids or retiring) where you have nothing left to do.
