Today is Attack on Titan’s Mikasa Ackerman’s birthday and fans around the world are sharing their incredible anime artwork online in celebration.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the anime industry features some of the best animators and artists in the entire world.
However, some of the best anime art actually comes from the fans themselves; whether it be through the medium of cosplay, concept art or paintings.
Today, Attack on Titan fans are getting their main girl, Mikasa Ackerman, trending worldwide to celebrate her birthday – sharing some incredible artwork that deserves global recognition.
Attack on Titan fans celebrate Mikasa’s birthday
Attack on Titan fans around the world are today, February 10thcelebrating the birthday of the one and only Mikasa Ackerman.
The birthday of the iconic character was first confirmed in the Attack on Titan Guidebook, which released in September 2014.
Chapter 19 of the Attack on Titan manga explained that in the year 844, Mikasa and Eren were both nine years old, meaning they were born in the year 835.
By chapter 91, The Other Side of the Sea, where we are introduced to the Marley war with Falco (season 4 episode 1), Mikasa is 19-years-old.
According to the Fandom page, she is 22-years-old in the second part of the final season, which is set in the year 857 canonically.
How old are the other Attack on Titan characters?
As previously mentioned, Eren is the same age as Mikasa and so is Armin – with all three growing up together in Shiganshina and subsequently, in the Scout Regiment.
In fact, most of the early characters from the Scout regiment are around the same age, 22-23 years old, with Reiner being around one year older than the rest.
According to the Attack on Titan Fandom page, Gabi and Falco are around 15-years-old, being part of the Warrior Candidates for the Nine Original Titans. The ages of Porco Galliard and Pieck Finger are also unknown, but will likely be around that of Reiner.
Interestingly, one of the oldest characters (ignoring the generals for Paradis and Marley) is Levi Ackerman. At Universal Studios Japan SNK THE REAL exhibition in 2016, it was reported that Levi is in his early-thirties by 850 and is well into his thirties by 854; however, his exact age was never confirmed in the manga.
