Attack on Titan fans are today, March 30thcelebrating the birthday of the main character Eren Jaeger by sharing some outstanding artwork online.
As is the case with any manga, anime or animated show, the artwork and visuals can have a tremendous impact on a series’ success and therefore, legacy.
Whilst Studio WIT and MAPPA have shown just how talented their artists are, some of the best Attack on Titan wallpapers and features actually come from the fans.
As the global Attack on Titan community waits patiently on the season 4 finale, many are commemorating Eren’s birthday with their own unique and gorgeous artwork.
Attack on Titan fans celebrate Eren’s birthday
Attack on Titan fans around the world are today, March 30thcelebrating the birthday of the series’ main character, Eren Jaeger.
Love him or loathe him, Eren is one of the very best protagonists (or antagonists, depending on your worldview) in the entire anime/manga industry.
Over the course of both the anime and manga series, fans have watched Eren turn from an idealistic young boy into a blood-thirsty killing machine and now, to a deity-like figure that has the fate of the entire world in the palm of his bandaged hands.
However, this entire story arc has developed over just 13-years canonically, making his demeanour in season 4 all the more depressing.
According to the series’ lore, Eren was born in the year 835, the same year that Mikasa and Historia were also born. When the Titans first break the walls at Shiganshina, Eren is 10-years-old and by the time he first enters his Attack Titan form, he is aged 15.
By 854, the year that The Rumbling starts, Eren would be either 23-years-old or 24-years-old, as unfortunately it was never stated which month the event took place.
Fans share some incredible artwork in celebration
There are millions of Attack on Titan fans from every corner of the world and today, the global community is celebrating Eren’s birthday the only way that they know how; artwork.
No matter the series, character or scene, incredibly talented artists can always be found posting their latest anime-themed creations; this week focusing on the Titan MC-himself.
In fact, fans aren’t the only ones celebrating Eren’s birthday, with MAPPA releasing their own special artwork.
Want a more tangible commemoration? The ‘Memorial Fragment’is a figurine of Eren with four glass-pane windows of some of his best moments.
From detailed water-colored paintings to animated gifs, there is plenty of fantastic fan artwork to be admired from the Attack on Titan community, here are some of our favorites:
