Now, I sleep.
Heading off to the park tomorrow if the weather’s nice enough, so I should try and get some rest before I wind up pulling a full blown all nighter.
Hopefully everyone has a pleasant day today~
I’M COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED WITH FEELINGS ABOUT SQUAD MIKE AND MIKENANA AND IT’S ALL THE FAULT OF julystorms
I hope you’re happy you’re sinking me even further into the abyss.
I can only hope Mike and Nanaba receive a nice handful of screen time to gets sparks going for anime only fans, when season 2 airs. THIS SMALL SHIP WILL SAIL IN AN EXTRAORDINARY FASHION. THE MIKENANA AGENDA IS REAL, and it is powerful. >:)
OKAY I will admit that it’s twisted of me to hope that Mike and Nanaba get some serious screen time in the second season but I don’t think it’s a farfetched idea. They get a scene that’s just as nice as Jean & Marco, and shortly after both of them die anyway (GOD THAT IS JUST LITERALLY SO SAD don’t worry I’m planning a fic about it ohhh snap—I was given unexpected OTP feels listening to music the other day). Let’s not forget the anime did add a Levihan scene (that scene was a little too shippy imo; it stuck out oddly to me but whatever I am 100% not complaining).
So like, it’s not unreasonable to think maybe Mike & Nana will get a scene in season two! Either way more Mike Squad in general will be pretty nice I think.
But yeah I don’t think that’s unreasonable to hope for?? That they’ll get a scene or two? Maybe something more than is in the manga? (God I’m such a loser.) Even so I just am really crossing my fingers that the scene they did get in the manga is KEPT IN THE ANIME *and* that it’s well-done, because gosh, I love that scene. I know in retrospect it’s really sad, but it’s also just a really nice scene. I don’t think Mike was feeling overly hopeful, but he did his best to try to inspire Nanaba to keep fighting. And he was right, of course; if they don’t keep fighting…they’ll die for sure. fdsjakfdasfa
Ugh. Mike and Nanaba’s deaths get to me, mostly because they didn’t even see each other die. Maybe that’s a blessing in disguise. We see how Nanaba goes after Gelgar to try to save him even knowing he’s a goner. He said so himself. But she tries anyway. And I mean maybe she doesn’t care anymore because by this point she has to know that Mike is dead, but it’s easy to imagine she’d do the same for Mike if she had been there with him.
I guess at least Mike died hoping his squad and the kids got away safely.
Henning and Lynne died too quickly to really have time to think but I’m sure Nanaba and maybe Gelgar were aware long enough for their last thoughts to be that they had bought time for the defenseless kids under their care, but they’d also be aware that the kids are going to die next. Like I wonder what they were thinking about in their last moments, knowing they weren’t going to be saved, knowing they ultimately perhaps failed to protect the kids?
I wasn’t happy to see Gelgar die, but I think I was a little sadder about Nanaba’s death because well, we see that her leg’s been ripped off (and son, it’s ripped in a way that you know would cause excruciating pain like ughhh don’t let me think about it), and then all I can think about is that pep talk Mike gives her.
And okay but if you go back a few scenes earlier, there’s no way she doesn’t know that Mike is dead. THERE. IS NO. WAY. Like man she has faith in his battle skill I’m sure, and he works well in a team and he’s not stupid, but when he doesn’t come back, when he doesn’t meet up with them, she’s probably certain he’s dead and that’s so horrible after he gave her that speech that helped inspire her to pull herself back together. I mean, Nanaba’s a cool cucumber but we really get to see that even she’s struggling. Not in the same way Levi or Hange or Erwin struggle, maybe, but she’s struggling. And Mike seems to be, too, a little bit, but he finds the strength that Nanaba needs to be witness to so that she can help herself a little, and then Mike’s dead and ughhhhh. It’s just sad. I’m sure his words still mean something to her even after his death, but…that is a hard blow. Even if you don’t ship it it’s obvious she really respects him and values his opinion, so. Yeah. I just. Dx
Nanaba’s death hit hard because she didn’t even give up. Gelgar had given up. He knew he was gonna die and they were screwed but Nanaba wasn’t giving up and she tried to save Gelgar and in the process ended up running out of gas and dying. If she had gone to the top of the tower. She would. Have. Lived. Because Hange and Co. arrived shortly after. Because Ymir would have still transformed to save Krista.
I’m fucking done I can’t.
HELP ME I AM SO FAR GONE RIGHT NOW.
Bless you, July. That is all.
Yes, I agree that it isn’t far-fetched for there to be a scene or two for them even if it happens to be something filler-y or differ from the manga in some way. I wouldn’t be upset in the slightest if they added something for Mike and Nanaba. That goes ditto for Squad Mike, because it’d be wonderful to see Squad interaction before the situation gets heavy and Mike takes his role as distraction. I’m not even sure what direction the producers are going to take when it comes to episodes since so much happens in upcoming chapters, so I have my fingers crossed here—it’ll be interesting to see how the Utgard chapters will turn out given the anime’s track record to accomplish some REALLY GOOD THINGS, but also manage to miss the mark on certain occasions. I’m hopeful the crucial scene between Mike and Nanaba will remain!
