Since season 1 was released in 2013 until season 4 recently, Attack on Titan has proven to the audience that this is a really attractive animated film with the building of a system of extremely strong characters. strong but with a tragic fate. Perhaps it is because they are so strong, so brave that when looking at what they have to endure, many people cannot help but feel sad and shocked. One of them is the character Mikasa.
In Attack on Titan, Mikasa is the main female character who is also a part of the trio of “young and old” best friends with the male lead Eren and “prodigy” Armin. Once upon a time, Mikasa was a victim of human traffickers, having witnessed her parents being killed right in front of her eyes. Fortunately, the arrival and saving of Eren’s life helped bring out the “beast” in Mikasa, turning her into a true killing machine of the Ackerman family. Also because of Eren’s help, Mikasa was extremely grateful and considered him as her own life to protect and cherish. However, fate was so cruel that the two had to confront each other.
Recently, according to Comicbook.com, they had the opportunity to chat with the British voice actress for Mikasa’s character, Trina Nishimura. Here she shared her feelings that surprised everyone. Trina Nishimura said she cried a lot after each recording of season 4 because she was so heartbroken over the fate of the character Mikasa.
Now Mikasa has to witness Eren’s transformation, which puts her in a very difficult situation. She is stuck in her own choice, not knowing whether to fight the person she loves or listen to his plan to destroy humanity. One side is emotional, the other is rational, making her not know what to do. The struggle in her soul made her feel suffocated.
It is this that makes Trina Nishimura extremely emotional when immersing herself in the character of Mikasa. She shared: “I feel everything in season 4 is both painful and too harsh. No more beach moments, no more peaceful scenes, it’s all a harsh reality for Mikasa. I think the biggest challenge for me was the rooftop scene, which was really hard for me.As a voice actor you convey your own feelings and experiences into the character’s situation so it’s sad and scary”.
Reading this far, what do you think about Mikasa’s fate, do you sympathize like Trina Nishimura or not? But these are just the details that appear in the anime of season 4, and according to the end of the manga, in the end Mikasa has to kill the person she loves. And even now, she has not heard a word of love from the boy she spent her youth pursuing.
It is this tragic ending that makes Attack on Titan fans extremely heartbroken, and they hope that “the anime is still on”. Don’t know if this anime version will be changed or not, let’s wait and see!
