Random question I guess, but what role do you think Annie still has in this manga? I assume that as the one who still holds the Female Titan, she has to factor in somewhere before this is over. Being one of the Nine.
But, no offense to the Annie fans......It's been so long since she the last time she was ever relevant. Seems too late in the game for any return to really feel like it's gonna be meaningful. I hate to say it, but Isayama really should have just killed her off years ago. I'm not the biggest Annie fan honestly, she is a murderer after all, but for someone who was such a big deal before, she's been so disappointing in how she just isn't a player now.
I guess Yams wanted to keep a little mystery going over the whole Marley thing, but he could've done that just as easily by having her straight up killed. Annie's just kind of a waste XP
Does she have a role still or would you guys have done the same? I know every other fan seems to hate the whole Annie question, LOL
I don't think she will have a major earth shattering role, because there isn't the time to build up for that, but she will probably factor in somehow (even if it's just somebody eating her crystal) because it seems the Female Titan power is still locked within her and I can't imagine it's going to stay dormant when all the others are being used.
I guess she ain't ever fulfilling her promise to see her father again. Really, it's a darned shame to waste such a character like that. I fully expect that at the end the Nine Titans are probably gonna be destroyed somehow so that they can never respawn again, after all we are assuming Eren has a plan to end the Titans' existence for good. Even if she somehow woke up before this all ended, it would not pan out too good with everything Yams is trying to resolve in such a short time. And I think he's really stretched himself out just a little too far. It's really disappointing that Annie essentially has not been a part of this story even while still technically alive for as long as she has been crystallized.
It's sad to see fans who are still wondering about Annie because it's sure to be disappointing when there's no room for her in the last arc. She really should've just bit the dust back then or remained part of the main warrior group.
Honestly it'd be better if she was discarded at this point. Not only has she been in the crystal for years and remained irrelevant, but personally, I have hated her since she was revealed to be the Female Titan, so I would have no objections to him killing her off without further explanation since he was disturbingly comfortable enough to do that with Ymir and Sasha.
Yeah I can't really argue. It's not like I liked Annie all that much more than Gabi XP But she still was the better character and could've been a lot more. If Yams is saving her for anything, he's really running out of time. I can already hear the fans going nuts when she gets eaten in that crystal. DX The only question is who eats her.
Yeah, I miss that Sasha. Give us more Springles, Yams.
Better off killed off, sorry Annie fans XP We spend so much time on Pieck who isn't really a critical character but Annie could've easily taken her screentime. Like how do you make up for how long it's been since Annie was last relevant? It's a serious drag. I stopped asking when she'd wake up a long time ago. X_X
I agree, it seems there is not much time to fit her back into the story in a meaningful way. I'm wondering the same for Levi, at this point it would be off for him to have survived without being critically injured, so death might a shame, but the best for him. As for Annie, she's always said she just wanted to be a regular girl, so if Eren does get rid of the titan curse from Eldians, perhaps it could do just that. Did her father even survive Eren's attack of Libero?
Nothing was said about him. As far as I remember. Not as far as the festival goes. But come on, this far in, this close to the end, I would've simply nuked her if this was essentially the end of her story. How long has it been, seven years since she crystallized? Imagine all that Yams could've done with her instead. XP
