Attack on Titan knows when to break hearts. The anime has a reputation worse than FMA when it comes to screwing around with characters, and none of the fan favorites are ever safe from being offed. Sadly, it’s a heroine this time. When the latest chapter of manga went alive, Sasha was done. She was no more.
Before continuing further, I’d like to warn you off potential spoilers.
For those of you who are on track with Shingeki no Kyojin manga, know that the Survey Corps bid adieu to one of it’s best in chapter 105.In the wake of ambush on Marley, Survey Corps came out alive among all odds, but a shot from a stowaway brought Sasha’s life to an end. It was untimely and sad at the same time. She was brought to her knees after being shot at a point blank range by Gabi. After continuous bleeding, Connie confirmed Sasha was no more.
As a lunatic and fan, it was something I couldn’t digest, neither could any of my fellow otakus. Twitter was on a roll following Sasha’s death. She may not have been as badass as Mikasa Ackerman or Levi but she had a special place in the hearts of fans like you and me. Her love for sweet potatoes, weirdness clubbed with innocence had a different effect on the anime, which was otherwise known to be a rather brutal one.
