I'm sorry but Irvin/Rivaille or Rivaille/Duty or Rivaille/Cleanliness are the only possible pairings.

I'm honestly surprised that attack of the titans have a huge fujoshi fanbase.

Seems like a weird series for them to latch on to.

Young boys heroically bleeding for each other.

You know, all those hints about Reiner and Bertholdt, I actually interpreted them to imply that he's gay.

And then he went titan on us.

He can still be gay though, just a gay titan.

Rivaille/Eren is perfect. Rivaille is everything Eren wanted to be. One day, after some terse conversation over dinner, Rivaille sneaks into Eren's room . . . Ooh, senpai, etc, etc. Let me show you how the 3D manuever gear really works. Wait, I need to refill my blades. Oh, I got your refill right here . . .

It's got a bunch of cool male characters, why is that surprising? Plus the close bonding that can only come from constant shared near-death experiences and warfare, etc.

I dunno. Jojo at least I can see because starting from part 2 everyone gets crazy fabulous, with next to no meaningful female love interest, and with reality-bending physiques. Just look at the first appearance of the pillar men. *swoon*

2. Mikasa's butt

Done already. Trust me.

After seeing the first two episodes, I started to think it was waaaaay too risky to just follow the anime and read the entire thing. It was really entertaining though that reveal in 42 was pretty... awkward. I actually went several pages back to ensure I did not miss any information or big panel or anything, this was so weird.

Just a question: didn't Nick, the priest dude, said that Harmonia was supposed to be able to give some answers because she was the heir to a big family? I'm pretty surprised they didn't ask her ANYTHING yet.

No one in the manga actually wants answers. Their only purpose is to misdirect the viewer into thinking there's something amazing and mysterious to look forward to before stabbing them in the dick.

the mangaka is such a bloody tease.

Every time when you thought the 'good' guys would have a break, e.g. arrest of titan-annie in the woods, she escaped after killing off a bunch characters. Every time when you thought some mysteries would be revealed, e.g. the arrest of annie, she turned into crystal.

While I enjoy the overall very dark settings and despotic nature of the titans, the series might run into the same trouble as game of thrones later books, let's kill off characters and/or make them going round in circles enduring more pain and setbacks.

And eren is so very much your typical male protagonist in manga.

He also said that she doesn't know anything at the moment. She could get answers from her family though.

Pretty much. Eren is a deconstruction of the typical angry shounen protagonist; hence his extreme anger issues and borderline derangement; not to mention the contrast caused by placing him in a world where willpower can only get you so far and most people he's with die horribly.

Not much of a twist: she was said to be female just one page after her first appearance. :
