Shingeki no Kyojin Creator: “Armin is a Girl!”

Genderswapped-Armin-by-core-suke

A recent interview with Shingeki no Kyojin creator Hajime Isayama has made a rather surprising revelation to the series overwhelming mass of devoted fans – the fact that Eren’s clever blonde friend Armin is apparently female.

The shocking development was made when Isayama was asked as to which of the title’s “female characters” is closest to the sexy and capable Mikasa Ackerman – to which Isayama had briefly responded with “Armin”.

While Isayama’s statement was clearly made in jest, there is also a lack of evidence supporting Armin’s female gender – yet some fans still seem to have determinedly taken Isayama’s words for fact, making various speculations and theories in hopes of “revealing the truth” behind his remark.

The brief interview was conducted by Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shounen Magazine:

ShingekinoKyojin-Interview-1

ShingekinoKyojin-Interview-2

Aside from conspiracy theories and a possible doujinshi sub-genre, there does not however seem to be much danger of the comments being taken seriously – although stranger things have happened.

    She obviously had them tied down to avoid flapping during maneuvering.

    It's exactly because its FANart that they have the creative freedom to revision characters however they want?

    It shouldn't bother you in the least.

    No, because fan art is almost always "off" from the originals anyway. It isn't official art.. it's fan art.

    Getting annoyed by somebody changing something for their own fun is completely stupid.

    Yep, that annoys me too. Nothing worse then picking up a doujin of one of my favorite characters to fap to, only to find that the artist gave them quadruple Ds, monster hips, and a ghetto booty.

    Whats the point in even drawing a certain character if you're just going to completely change the way they look?

    That's like asking why a guy would want a bigger penis. I'd expect having a massive cock would make walking a little more uncomfortable.

    Protip: it's because humans are simple creatures who measure worth by apparent size. It's especially prevalent in certain countries who often say that "bigger = better".

    Having large breasts SUCKS! They're the first things that get elbowed in a crowded hall way, there's no way to keep them from drooping (no matter what the bra companies tell you), and walking while they feel sore is like walking with broken toes. It's just a pain in the ass.

    Because some women think having A/B/C cup boobs isn't enough and feel 'low' in confidence. So they get someone to add some silicon and suddenly they feel confident with basketballs on their chest, when in reality some small petite women look ridiculous with massive boobs irl.

    Pretty sure it's a certain other gender that wants it that big.

    Except the majority of women that get breast implants, are actually the ones that wanted them, only a small portion did it for their boyfriends or husbands.

    Who wouldn't want to be able to say with confidence "my body is very desired by the opposite gender"?

    (Also, that made me think, lesbians probably also like big breasts sometimes).

    I do think however that personality is key.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Not this particular part of that gender. Massive bewbs are rather hidious in RL. I'll take nicely formed B-cups over gravity supressed D-cups any day of the week.

    No because I don't take fanart that seriously, nor do I take these characters seriously enough to think they're real people with feelings. Do you?
