The Eren Yaegar Discussion Thread. (SPOILERS)
Posted 9/29/15
What disturbs me about him is that when he was 9 years old he murdered 2 men without remorse, deeming them animals. In such a sense he can be described as somewhat of a tribute to the Rorschach (Watcmen) type of character, the type of characters often use violent ways to achieve ends while categorizing their actions as good regardless of the method due to their beneficial end. In a sense this is paying evil unto evil. I can't help but think Eren is meant to cater to the the fans of such a ruthless character. People that like such characters I imagine to be rather angst filled, driven by their sense of justice, seeing themselves on the side of good while sympathizing with those using such actions in real life to achieve good ends. You see this in everyday life, such as when the bullied attack their attackers and the videos posted online.

So what do you think? Is Eren Jaeger pandering to these type of people or no? Do you even like Jaegar?

He's part of a new and emerging archetype: the asshole idiot hero.

Pretty sure that archetype has been around for awhile now.

I don't really care for Eren. I like Armin and Levi more than him.
