Eren was killed by Mikasa, and the rumbling was stopped. Many fans agreed with this ending, but many disagreed and wanted Mappa to change the ending.
Despite the mixed feelings of the fans, they did enjoy the ending as well as the anime as a whole. The plot, characters, and animation were all top-notch and noteworthy.
The plot was filled with twists and turns, and fans were astounded and amazed by each one. All the characters and their stories played a very important role in the development of the plot, and fans enjoyed their stories.
The founder, Ymir’s story, is one that the fans particularly liked. Her story was both sad and tragic, and fans understood how the Titans came to be. Ymir was exploited for her powers, and fans found that to be extremely tragic.
She never experienced unconditional love and support, and many even cried after watching her story. Even after her death, Ymir was still bound and was never free until the end.
Many understood why she did what she did, but there is something that the fans are still curious about. They wish to know why Ymir loved King Fritz.
Why did Ymir love Fritz and remain with him?
As mentioned above, Ymir was exploited by Fritz for her Titan abilities. People who read the manga or watched the anime are aware of how Ymir got her powers.
According to the legends passed down in Marley, a devil-like creature bestowed the Titan powers onto Ymir. However, the truth is that Ymir got those powers accidentally.
Ymir’s parents were killed by Fritz and his army and she was captured by them. One day, she let some pigs go, and Fritz found out that it was her.
He then asked his men to chase her. To protect herself, Ymir entered a big tree and fell into a big chasm. In that chasm, a spine-like creature merged with her body and created the first Titan.
Ymir returned to Fritz’s side after that. He started using Ymir to do his bidding and killing the Marleyans. He considered Ymir to be his slave and, as a reward, made her his concubine. Ymir gave birth to three girls with Fritz.
The reason behind Ymir’s love for Fritz is not stated outright in the manga. In addition to that, understanding the reason behind her feelings is a bit complicated.
Ymir was well aware of the fact that she was being exploited and used for her powers, and she didn’t want to do many things that Fritz asked her to do. However, she couldn’t refuse him.
Ymir was never loved properly in her life, and her understanding of the emotion was twisted. When she was made a concubine, she truly believed that Fritz loved her in his twisted way.
Ymir was desperate for love, and the only way she could get it was from Fritz and doing his bidding. This made her yearn for his praises and approvals, which she confused for love. She wanted to be needed by someone and feel loved, and Fritz manipulated her with this.
Ymir’s story is tragic through and through. She died trying to save Fritz from an assassination attempt. After which, Fritz asks her to get up and calls her his slave. Her body was also fed to her daughters in order to preserve her powers.
Ymir’s reason for loving Fritz is very simple once someone thinks about it. She has a twisted understanding of love and thinks that the only way she can experience love is through Fritz.
In addition to that, Ymir, like Historia, is a people pleaser and needs to please Fritz. As a result, she devoted her entire life to him and did everything to earn his praise and approval.
As a result of her thinking and desperation for love, she never rebelled against Fritz, even though she could have defeated him very easily. She did everything for him even after her death.
After her death, Ymir went to the paths and then obeyed the royal family and made titans for them whenever they needed them. She never experienced true freedom or happiness until the very end. However, in the end, when Mikasa killed Eren, Ymir smiled and was finally free and happy.
