Attack on Titan Voice Actress Responds to Creator Calling Armin a Girl

posted on by Chris Nishijima
The confusion continues as members of the anime and manga industry join in the discussion.

The November issue of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine has caused the internet to fall into mass chaos. During a special Q&A editorial with Attack on Titan's creator Hajime Isayama was asked, "Out of all the women in the 104th, who is Mikasa closest to?" to which he responded, "Armin."

Since then, his answer has become one of the hottest topics on the minds of fans, throwing many of them into confusion. While some of them have been searching for proof of Armin's gender one way or the other, some are just left flabbergasted. Popular actress and manga lover, Rika Adachi posted on her Twitter on the topic saying "Is this a joke? LOL! I have no idea!"

Full Moon O Sagashite's creator also Arina Tanemura commented on the occurrence, saying, "If they confirmed it in Bessa Mag then it must have really been written that way," followed by, "Armin... Armin-chan... Kidding, I thought I'd play around with it."

Series creator Isayama seems to be determined to add more fuel to the flames, adding this comment to the debate. "Among those around Mikasa, Armin's looks are a little ambiguous."

However, the biggest news on the topic is the fact that even Marina Inoue, who plays the role of Armin in the anime adaptation of Attack on Titan has joined in the discussion. She posted on her Twitter simply asserting "Armin is a man!!!!"
