DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Mikasa Ackerman, despite not being a Titan, has a Titan form? While not being canon to the story, Hajime Isayama, author of Shingeki no Kyojin, portrayed several characters in their Titan transformations in one of the volume's side-arts. Despite not being a Titan, though, Mikasa still remains a formidable soldier in the Paradis Military, specifically in the Survey Corps branch. Her fame became widespread to the point that video games and even an episode of The Simpsons paid tribute to her, the former featuring an NPC based on Mikasa voiced by Yui Ishikawa, the same actor that voiced her in the anime adaptation.

Additionally, a noteworthy amount of work and planning went into Mikasa's creation. This includes her being named after a battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy which served as the flagship during their war against the Russian Empire in 1904-1905 This is due to Isayama believing that female characters named after famous battleships will bring about the success of his series. That being said, Mikasa Ackerman is among the many female anime characters who can go toe-to-toe with their male counterparts, oftentimes even being better at them in a variety of activities and fields.

    "OMG 😍Erza is my baby! She's like one of the best female anime characters ever! Every single time she selflessly offer her life for her guildmates, i cry A LOT! She always makes these speeches about love and friendship 😭 She's the strongest mage and she really deserves to be the new guild master. I don't like her with jellal though, i think they're too complicated as characters to be able to have a proper relationship."

I thought her ordinary powers of shapeshifting was cool but her ultra powerful black magic is straight insane! I was really sad when she's grieving for lisanna but thank hiro mashima for bringing her back!"

    "Female characters in anime are always portrayed as immediately strong, or sexy or whatever but i like hinata's character. her development is the most sensible. she is a weakling, sometimes i hate her for dragging down others for her lack of strength. but damn. she grew a lot as a character and is now a valuable member of the team."
