Eren is confirmed to have partial if not potentially full access to the magic (I'm biased to think it is not full access). The confirmation is that just normal Eldians (all of his friends) have their memories erased of Eren's goodbye conversation with them. Ah, I just realized, maybe Sasha dies with a smile on her face because Eren makes it so that she knows the ending ahead of time! It automatically reverts upon his dying, but he has full control of when he wants it to be undone otherwise. So Eren can affect all descendants of Ymir in theory. At the very least, he can affect all of his friends.
Wait, wait. This is why the entire series is complicated. Eren as a child now has knowledge of Eren as an adult. He only has the reaction shown and the reactions you are conveying the first time (of the potential 600 something repeats). Even if there are no repeats, the timeline we are shown is Eren having memories of all of his life experiences. He is mentally an adult and knows the "necessary sacrifice". He isn't seeing it as only in the moment. This is why messing with the space-time continuum is usually a bad choice, but Isayama did a masterful job.negatibuhige wrote: ↑Fri Apr 23, 2021 5:58 amThat. That wasn't motivation. That was friggin childhood going on adulthood T R A U M A.
The day when I watched the 1st episode for the very first time, I was terrified. After mom came home from work in the evening, I was like "MOM STAY WITH ME!!! DON'T GET EATEN BY A TITAN!!" (Needless to say my mom was veeery confused)
Essentially, everything makes sense because we are never shown the conflict, panic attacks, and breakdowns Eren goes through. We only see him when he is mentally calm and able to literally put on a fake act. This becomes more clear when he invades Marley, but literally his entire life is just a fake act to throw everyone off his real intention.
So technically, only part of the cake broke off/slipped off. The vast majority of the series still fits perfectly together. The most important part got rushed though. It isn't as bad as it appears though. So that's probably my main point here. The whole space-time continuum makes it complex, but Eren literally tricked us all. So even when we knew the full potential of his powers, he had all the fans tricked too.
Back to the blind Oda faith (until the next B.S. of course).
