In a recent Reddit post on r/ShingekiNoKyojin, a fan of the series u/Dan_ErwinSmith went viral after finding a recurring error regarding the depiction of sizes of the Titans in author Hajime Isayama‘s popular series Attack on Titan.
The user shared a scene of the encounter between Eren Jeager‘s Attack Titan and Bertolt Hoover‘s Colossal Titan, and wrote, “This doesn’t make sense. Bertholdt’s colossal titan = 60 Meters, Eren’s Attack Titan= 15 Meters. Eren should reach the height of Bertholdt’s knees and not just his foort (foot).”
u/Dan_ErwinSmith was backed up by more fans who agreed the perception of dimensions was not correct in the manga as well. A few comments regarding the issue are as follows:
“Yeah the worst offender in this direction is probably the last page of chapter 100/last shot of S4E5 where Eren looks like he’s practically the size of the CT himself in comparison to the crowd.”
“Erens Titan also looks all over the place lol. When the scouts were on his shoulder they were up to his head, but then you see him lift a freakin ship and he’s like 1/3 it’s size.”
In fact, the mismatch in perception got compared to several recurring errors found in other globally popular franchises like Dragon Ball Z, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and One Piece.
“AoT measures height the same way DBZ measures time”
“And how one piece measures height, and how Araki does color”
“I watched something years ago that Freiza didn’t really mean ‘Earth minutes’ but other planet’s. Anyway, it’s still epic. Haha”
