As many would agree, Attack on Titan is a story we consider a masterpiece from start to finish. However, as much as we would like to think there are no flaws in this anime, we would be mistaken, as the critically acclaimed title could’ve done certain things better.

Say, maybe there was a tad more romance between Eren Yaeger and Mikasa Ackerman. Or put a little more loving on Levi Ackerman’s story; some aspects could’ve done better. But there are some aspects we think stand above the rest.

Whether the Attack on Titan fandom wants to admit it or not, there are a few things that could’ve made this story go from a masterpiece to an absolute legendary tale that every generation of anime viewers (and manga readers) has to check out if they want to be true fans. And while these reasons are so minute compared to the greatness of this story, they are definitely still worth mentioning.

Without further ado, here are 5 things no one wants to admit about Attack on Titan!

5. Other nations could’ve been explored more

One of our favorite twists of this story was that there were still a few more citizens from other nations. Onyankopon and Kiyomi Azumabito were refreshing faces to see, as they not only served as a reminder that there’s another world outside of the three walls we’ve always known but also allowed for some more diversity in the story. More importantly, it reminded us that the some of the characters we all know and love aren’t native to Eldia.

Mikasa Ackerman has always been with us since the beginning, so we often forget that she isn’t Eldian. Rather, she has descendants from Kiyomi Azumabito’s heritage (as confirmed in season 4), making her someone who comes from Asian culture.

Whether Asian or African cultures are closer to what we know them to be or if they are something else entirely is something we definitely want to know. Granted, we have some information on this, as it has been reported that Onyankopon’s culture practices Akan religion (which is practiced in places like Ghana and Ivory Coast). Even so, sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s enough.

What other religions are practiced in the world? What other cultures exist out there? Who would be the Eren Yaeger of other societies? All these questions we have are practically begging to be answered. And while the answers won’t necessarily add or subtract from the overall story, we believe it would’ve been a nice aspect to see implemented.
