Apparently, in Chapter 112 of the Attack On Titan manga, Eren says that Mikasa is a slave. For all their life it seems they have been friends. Has their friendship been broken because of this?

Also, if possible, leave some theories as to what may happen between the two, e.g. a fight.

Warning: Some spoilers below.

If you look at the succeeding pages of Chapter 112, Eren does indeed say that he hates Mikasa and revealed that he has done so ever since they were kids.

Whether he means it or not, however, is a different matter altogether. He could or could not be lying. The reason for him doing so or if he did lie, we cannot know yet as of now due to lack of information.

What we do know, however, is that in Chapter 115,

it was revealed that Eren and Zeke had a talk, with Eren agreeing to Zeke's plan of genocide to wipe out the Eldian race. The reason being that if they were never born in the first place, there would be no suffering and Eren views it as their 'salvation'. Him pushing away everyone he knows, including his two close friends, Armin and Mikasa, was probably to ease the pain he would feel and sever any attachment or feelings he felt towards the two, knowing that he would be responsible for their deaths soon, if their plan succeeds.

Would it be possible for Eren and Mikasa to fight? This is speculation but I think this can be substantiated by facts mentioned in Chapter 112. In that same chapter,

it was revealed that Ackermans awaken their powers when they recognize someone as a 'host'. Eren was recognized by Mikasa as her host and someone she had to protect so I doubt that she would be able to hurt him. Even when Eren said those harsh words and Armin was about to punch Eren, Mikasa still stopped Armin, following her clan's 'instincts' when awakened.

    I just read spmewhere on internet that Isuyama actually makes Eren think of Mikasa like a mother. google.com/amp/s/comicbook.com/anime/amp/2017/06/20/… – L o a d i n g . . . Mar 20 at 15:30
  • @Loading... That's interesting. Given the time it was posted, however, and how Eren is now, I doubt he still sees her as a mother. As a lover? Looks like he still doesn't. As a friend? Maybe not anymore. I can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter. – W. Are Mar 20 at 17:47
  • I don't think Eren and Mikasa will meet for a while probably the chapter after the next or even after that. I feel something may happen between Armin and Mikasa but not Eren. – L o a d i n g . . . Mar 20 at 23:09
  • @Loading... Um, remember that they were going together to Shinganshina after Eren captured Mikasa and Armin, where Eren said 'it all started', so if there's any event concerning either of the three (Armin, Mikasa and Eren), we'll see all three of them together that is, unless something else happens on the way and they are separated. – W.

  • I wanted to also point out that in the anime when Eren gets the founding titan power he seems to have a moment with Mikasa. I can't tell if it is friendly or not because of the way Mikasa was acting. – L o a d i n g . . . Mar 22 at 16:17

It has been reported that Isayama says that Eren sees Mikasa as a mother. Mikasa always seem to control Eren and he seems fed uo of it. In chapter 112, Eren says that he hasn't liked Mikasa since childhood and this is pretty understandable because from our point of view she seems very clingy. Mikasa has shown her affection towards Eren but it is not the same vice versa. She was there to protect him and he may have gotfed up with her behaviour and decided to reveal his emotions

  • '... from our point of view she seems very clingy.' Not sure if clingy is the right word because she was even like that at all. More like she feels indebted to him. merriam-webster.com/dictionary/clingy Clingy is someone who stays close to someone for protection, for their own benefit. Whereas Mikasa stays close to Eren to protect him, take note of the difference. – W. Are Mar 22 at 2:47
