The main characters of “Attack on Titan” are Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert. Eren (S1) wants to kill all titans. He wants to get revenge for something he saw happen so he wants to join the Scout Regiment. The Scout Regiment is a group of people that are allowed to go outside the walls (where the titans come from) on dangerous missions. Mikasa is Eren’s best friend. She always makes sure he is safe, after all, he did save her life. Mikasa is physically strong, a lot of people are scared of her. Lastly, we have Armin (one of my favorites). Armin is also Eren and Mikasa’s best friend. Armin is really smart and he’s always dreamed of seeing the world outside the walls. When he was a kid, he had a book about life outside the walls, which is illegal, and that’s where he got his dream to see the ocean. As they grow older, they face many challenges together, and in my opinion, it looks like Armin doesn’t want to be Eren’s friend anymore. 

My favorite characters personally are, Eren Jaeger, Reiner Braun, and Historia Reiss. I still LOVE everyone else, well most of them, but if I had to choose 3, I would choose them. What I like about them is that they all have an interesting backstory which affects who they are. For example, Eren wants to get revenge for what happened that day and he never stops thinking about revenge all four seasons. His ways of getting revenge do change, after he finds out who the enemies really are. He’s doing everything he can to get revenge and freedom, even some bad things, but that’s what I think makes him an interesting character. Historia’s and Reiner’s backstories are spoilers so I’m not going to type them (sorry), but you should definitely watch Attack on Titan to find out.
