This, Eren x Historia is pure kino on so many level. Outside of the obvious
fact that this couple is aesthetically pleasing, it also simultaneously
btfo two of the most obnoxious groups of shippers : the Shitkasa self-inserters,
and the delusional Yumikuri dykes. This ship comes out of left field at first,
literally nobody expected it, but it makes so much sense from a character and
storytelling standpoint, because Eren and Historia both faced the same existential
crisis and their bond was cemented during their ordeal in the cave.
This is not some fancy romantic relationship, or love at first sight,
or superficial attraction, this is something more subtle, this is an
indestructible bond built between two people who overcame their darkest
hour together because they were inspired by one another. Everything else
like the parallels with Grisha and Dina, or the Goddess/Devil analogies
are just cherry on top. With Eren and Historia, Isayama blessed us
with a masterclass on how to write couples in fiction, everyone
who is against Eren x Historia is against great storytelling.
