Top 7 Facts About Mikasa Ackerman – Attack on Titan
Mikasa Ackerman is the female protagonist of Shingeki no Kyojin series. After her biological parents were killed, Eren’s family adopted her. Even though she just wanted a peaceful life with her brother Eren, Mikasa chose to follow him into the military.
As the 4th season of the anime Attack on Titan is on the way, the series gets more and more popular and has become the topic among many anime fans. Mikasa is one in all Attack on Titan’s hottest characters, however there are nonetheless loads of issues that followers might not find out about her.
So, what interesting facts does Mikasa Ackerman have? Without further ado, let’s get into it now! In this article, we willl show you some facts of Mikasa.
The Origin of Her Name.
The Japanese accord a great deal of importance to names and their meanings. Mikasa’s name derives from an Imperial Japanese Navy battleship that acted as a flagship in the war between Russia and Japan, and literally, the name also translated to “Three Bamboo Hats”. Series creator, Hajime Isayama, states he chose the name, Mikasa, out of believing that a series with a female character named after a warship, tends to be successful. Guess he was right, considering this series has become one of the best–selling manga in all over the world.
Mikasa Can’t Transform into A Titan
Because Mikasa has no Eldian bloodline, she is unable to turn in to a Titan. Additionally, she is part of the aforementioned Ackerman and Asian clan so she can’t be affected by the memory manipulation of the Founding Titans.
In fact, the Ackerman’s tend to have enhanced strength compared to normal humans even matching the Titans.
She Is A “Valedictorian” In Her Training Corps Class.
During the 104th Training Corps, Mikasa graduated first in her class. It came with no surprise how powerful she is. However, it is still something worth mentioning, in the 104th Training Corps, she had a good competition with Reiner, Annie, and Bertholdt who were experienced, seasoned soldiers.
She Imitates Levi’s Attack Style.
Mikasa always tries to hone her skill in taking out Titans. After seeing Levi use his signature spinning attack on a Titan, Mikasa attempts to use this technique on a Female Titan (Annie) in Season 1. Fans may not have noticed this at first glance, especially the situation.
Besides at the time, she is distressed, so Mikasa may not be aware that she’s imitating Levi’s combat style. However, it is still impressive given that she is able to execute Levi’s signature move.
Mikasa is Tough to Draw.
Fans love the unique design of Mikasa Ackerman, but they may be unaware of the time that goes into the creation of her character design. In the past, Isayama has stated Mikasa is the most difficult character to draw. Given the fact she encompasses unique features from the characters of the series, this does make sense.
Mikasa is One of The Heaviest Female Characters.
This may be alarming to most, but Mikasa weighs about 150 lbs. Considering the fact, her height is only 5 foot 7, which means she must be all muscle. She is the heaviest known female in the series, outweighing most of the men in the Scouts. The only two men she doesn’t outweigh are Bertolt and Reiner, and they\’re both over 6 foot tall.
She is Descendant of The Ackerman Clan
As her name implies, we can already know that Mikasa is a direct descendant of the Ackerman clan, and as we know later in the season, the same goes with Levi and Kenny. During the ‘Sin” episode, Levi asks if Mikasa and Kenny are related, after realizing they both share the same surname. Mikasa and Kenny sharing the same name isn’t a coincidence as they are descendants of the Ackerman’s. Later in the season, Levi finds out he is also an Ackerman – the royal guard clan.
