How drastically or minimally would the plot change if the main character died? Would it be for the better or worse? How would the characters change in terms of development? Discuss.

Mikasa would become the hero. she would grow and change as a person, instead of stagnatingly clinging to Eren's arm like a scared child, despite how much better she was than him.

then it would be all about mikasa, which wouldn't be to bad. but then it would be an anime all about revenge, which makes AOT less than what it is. not ganna lie be hell of interesting.

erin is a beast, but he needs something more than just being able to become a titan. though all the other characters have a pretty good build.

Honestly....it would have been for the better had Eren died. Kill Eren, make Armin the lead with Mikasa and Jean as the two back up leads.

Armin and Jean would still go through their character growth and without Eren coming back, we could see how Mikasa would grow to deal with his passing and in turn actually become a really good character(as is she is rather shallow. Badass, but still shallow).

Hell they could even keep the whole Titan Shifter stuff, but now it is humans fighting humans who can become Titans, instead of humans plus a human who can turn into a Titan fighting humans who can turn into Titans.

Basically it would mean the series would still be about humanity trying to overcome the Titans through their own courage, intelligence, and strength, their own skills.

Having Eren come back and be a Titan Shifter ruins the entire premise and initial central theme to the series and cuts some characters' growth short. It was basically, imo, the worst thing to happen to the series and I LOVE the series even with it in.

In that case, let's have someone else take the role of Eren's Titan form. Someone we don't know, and has a questionable agenda, like being in cohorts with the Titan Shifters. Flesh him/her out as the story progresses.

The show would get better? I really don't like having a Titan Shifter as the main character. I think Armin would be a better lead, there's more room in him for development.

This.

Plus Armin's a boss in the English dub.

I forgot to mention, how would events play out differently with Eren being dead and all?

People assume things would have been better, I really doubt it though.

Shit would've hit the fan. If Eren would have really died back when he was swallowed by the titan, I'm pretty sure the rest of the people fighting the titans would have been overthrown. Not only that but more titans would have entered the hole the colossal titan had made.

I disagree on the Mikasa ideas, i feel her a more complete character already.
It is Armin, he who witnessed the death and shows visible signs of destress when it happened, that would make the best hero.

The show would be like when Gurren Laggan killed of their hero.
The fans all shout NOOOOOO HE WAS TOO KOOL FOR THOS WORLD and have Simon-i mean Armin slowly grow into the hero shoes.

Armin is fun to watch ok? He never really wanted to do military stuff and kill titans, h just wanted freedom. The act of Armin picking up Erens fight without losing his ideals?

Man. I could write the spin off "what if" manga.

Yea I agree, and even if they all survive without Eren.... not having a titanshifter as a main character would make it kinda boring to me.
