Fans loved the series and were happy that the ending and progression of the series, while creating new mysteries, resolved pre-existing mysteries. While all the mysteries have been solved and understood by fans, some fans are still confused about something.
Fans are curious about the connection between Ymir founder and Mikasa Ackerman. Many people understand the connection while some are still confused about how the two of them are connected despite existing thousands of years apart.
Why was Mikasa chosen?
Those who have read or watched Attack On Titan already know who Ymir is and why she is important to the film and plot. For those who don’t know, Ymir is the founder.
She was the first to become a Titan and she was the one who started it all. According to legend in Marley, Ymir was visited by a demon-like being who gave her the power to transform into a Titan, and she used these powers on Eldia and tortured the Marleyans.
However, Ymir accidentally gained power. Her family was killed by the Eldians and she was captured. One night, she helped a pig escape and the Eldian king discovered it was her.
He released her, but she was chased again. In a desperate attempt to save herself, she stepped into a large tree and fell into the abyss. There, a mysterious spine-like creature merged with her.
This is how Ymir got her powers. She is the only person with the power of all nine giants. After Ymir gained her powers, she returned to King Fritz’s side.
She loves Fritz and does everything he asks, even when she doesn’t want to. Fritz is just using her, and Ymir is aware of it, but she cannot stop him because of love.
After his death, Ymir became trapped on the trails. She has waited more than a thousand years for someone to free her.
Mikasa and her have many similarities. Mikasa is also hopelessly in love with Eren and does things she disagrees with for him. She knew about his genocidal plans but did not kill him and tried to talk to him.
Eren and Fritz both use Ymir and Mikasa. Although Eren truly loved Mikasa, he abused the feelings she had for him. Because of this, Ymir sympathized with her. She closely follows Mikasa’s journey.
She knew Mikasa and her journey were very similar. Ymir is well aware that Mikasa, like her, loves someone and would do anything for them. She sees Mikasa as similar to herself.
In the end, when Mikasa kills Eren, Ymir stands in the background and smiles. She was happy that someone like her had the strength to do what she couldn’t do.
She was glad that Mikasa could choose humanity over her feelings for Eren, and she destroyed the Titan power and everything in it.
For thousands of years, Ymir has waited on the roads. All she wants is freedom. Mikasa was the one who freed her.
Ymir chooses Mikasa to free her because both of their stories are similar. Mikasa had the power to choose the good over her feelings, which in a way inspired Ymir and incited her to destroy the Titans once and for all. This is why Mikasa was chosen to free Ymir once and for all.
