Spoiler about the Ending
Throughout the event, Hajime expressed his regret about how he ended the comic. But as a manga reader with a broken heart, I can confirm that there was no other way to bring it to a close. Skip the last phrase and watch some other amazing anime if you don’t want spoilers. I’ll now discuss the anime’s finale.
I’ll now go through what prompted “Attack on Titan” developer’s to apologise in the first place. Eren’s ultimate attack, The Rumbling, was shown in season 4 part 2.
Furthermore, what seems to be the end of the world as we know it actually just began. The Rumbling will nearly completely wipe off Warriors and Titans as they become involved in a terrible battle for humanity. In the end, this invasion was successful in achieving Eren’s objectives of defending his country and rescuing Titan humanity.
There is only one other person who has seen everything, in contrast to Eren. I’m talking about Mikasa. In spite of the fact that doing so necessitated murdering Eren and putting a stop to his intentions, poor, faithful Mikasa did all in her power to defend the guy she loved.
She ultimately succeeded in doing precisely that, enabling the planet (as well as Eren’s friends) to fully recover. We who have supported Eren from the start do not despise Hajime. Instead, we cheerfully support all of his decisions about Eren.
The only way Eren could win was in that scenario, albeit humanity may also succeed. There is hence no need to apologize!
