Attack on Titan Chapter 123: Is Eren a hero or villain?

Published

on

Shingeki no Kyojin or Attack on Titan has become one of the best-selling Japanese manga series in years because of its dark theme and out of this world concept. But the latest chapter just took things to another level with perhaps the most disturbing and nauseating scenes you can ever see from a manga comic.

Chapter 122 revealed that the first ever titan shifter, Ymir, was a slave of the First Reiss King. After exploiting her titan powers to build an empire and expand territories by crushing the rival Marley race, King Reiss fathered three children with Ymir: Maria, Rose, and Shina. These three children would soon inherit Ymir’s abilities, accomplishing the transfer of power by feasting on their mother’s corpse.

2000 years after her death, the Founding Titan Ymir still has the fate of the whole world on her palm. Eren Yeager, the current holder of the Founding Titan, discovered that it was Ymir all along who is controlling the events leading up to the present time. She’s seeking retribution for the crimes of the world. And for her, justice can only be served by flattening the earth using the millions of Colossal Titans lined up in the three walls.

What’s Next?

If you already read the latest chapter, then you already know that Eren has already activated the earth-shattering power of the founding titan by linking with Ymir’s will. The day of reckoning has begun, and barring an unforeseen event, hell will break loose in the next chapter. Expect the death tool to rise at a dramatic rate as Colossal Titans begin to wreak havoc throughout Eldia.

What’s Eren Yeager’s true intention?

Is he a hero or a villain? I say he’s neither. From the very beginning, Attack on Titan author Hajime Isayama has made it clear that in the world of Shingeki no Kyojin no one is really good or bad. They are just humans with different ideologies and agenda. They are all victims of a war-torn world, where each character is driven to a point of no return. It’s either to flee or fight for their freedom. Eren chooses to fight for it, no matter how violent the turnout would be.

Eren shouldn’t be blamed for his Machiavellianism stance. He was born and raised for one single goal, and that is to seek retribution for the crimes of the world. Yeah, Eren is death personified. He wants to end the war that brought suffering to everyone. Zeke’s Euthanasia plan is flawed; it doesn’t rectify the wrong in the society.

As for Eren’s point of view, violence might be the only way for the world to really unite. If you watched Code Geass, then you might already have an idea of what Eren is trying to pull off; it’s Operation Zero Requiem. He’s instigating anger in order for everyone, Marley or Eldian, to unite against one common enemy. That makes Eren badass in every sense of the word.
