What is the point if those with the means and power do not fight?
I don’t have time to worry if it’s right or wrong, you can’t hope for a horror story with a happy ending!
Nothing can suppress a human’s curiosity.
No matter how messed up things get, you can always figure out the best solution.
[Referring to a group of thugs] I disposed of some dangerous beasts. Mere animals that just happened to resemble humans.
I’m not gonna die here…
On that day, mankind received a grim reminder. We lived in fear of the titans, and were disgraced to live in these cages we called walls.
If you think reality is just living comfortably and following your own whims, can you seriously dare to call yourself a soldier?
I’ll kill every last one of them and break free of these walls!
[To Hannes] You’re drinking again? Uhm… Aren’t you on duty? But if you’re drunk, how are you gonna fight? When they (the titans) break the wall and come in!
I want to see and understand the world outside. I don’t want to die inside these walls without knowing what’s out there! On top of that, if no one takes on their jobs, then those who lost their lives will have died in vain!
[To Hannes] Why don’t you stop calling yourselves The Town Guards and call yourselves The Wall Menders!
Yeah, I know. We might not get out, but we’ll live as long as we can eat and sleep. But… We’re living like… Like livestock…
Stupid? People who are content living like livestock are more stupid!
I can never go back to that home. Why? Why did I spend my last hours there having stupid fights?
Because I am… because humans are weak… do weaklings have no alternative but to cry?
I’ve made it here at last. It’s humanity’s turn now. This time around…mankind will feast upon the Titans!
I did it! How’s that, Mikasa? I can do this! I can fight the Titans! I don’t need to have you looking after me anymore!
Knock it off! Mankind is on the verge of ruin! How can you be trying to make this situation convenient for yourself?
Armin…because you told me about it… I’m going to go…to the outside world.
What are you going to do if the ones with the strength don’t fight for you?
Why did I choose to stand by and watch my comrades be killed? Wait… I know. It’s because I wanted new comrades. Sincere support… like I had when I was with them [the 104th training squad]. I’ve already had enough. I’ve had enough of being treated like a monster and being left out. No more. That’s why. I just wanted to believe that trusting my comrades is the right thing to do.
There’s no time to figure out if this the right thing to do! Just move… Don’t try to keep your hands clean. That’s right, the world is cruel.
We’re born free. All of us. Free. Some don’t believe it, some try to take it away. To hell with them! Water like fire, mountains of ice, the whole bit. Lay your eyes on that, and you’ll know what freedom is, that it’s worth fighting for! Fight to live, risk it all for even a glimmer of real freedom! It doesn’t matter what’s waiting outside the gate, or what comes in! It doesn’t matter how cruel the world can be, or how unjust! Fight. Fight. Fight. FIGHT! FIGHT!!!
How come you get looked down upon just for saying you want to go outside?
Why is it that, in the end, all we could do was having those worthless fights?
I will wipe the Titans out and leave the confined walls to explore the outside world.
If you win, you live. If you lose, you die. If you don’t fight, you can’t win!
You don’t get it. You’ve never seen it! The way they eat people!
I’m not like those wall-sheltered pigs, pretending to be tough!
Aren’t you frustrated?! We can’t beat the titans if we’re living on fucking charity!
Actually, the titans are no big deal. Once we learn how to operate the 3 dimensional maneuver gear, they’ll be no match for us!
I believed that I must kill them all… That I must annihilate all the titans myself. That’s what I believed.
