While some viewers have been eyeing Annie and Armin since Season 1, some cannot imagine the two together. There are even some theories that Armin is only attached to Annie because he inherited Bertholdt’s feelings, as the latter obviously liked Annie.

However, that is not the case. Not many people talked to Annie because of her cold and distant personality.

Armin did not see this side of her and even told her that he thought she was a good person, which surprised her.

This simple conversation became the foundation of their relationship. It was also then that Annie knew that his opinions greatly mattered to her.

As such, Annie’s personality towards Armin changed as time went by.

Annie became kinder and more caring toward Armin, to the point that she tried to convince him not to join the Survey Corps.

While it was not explained why she did so, Annie might've been afraid that she could harm Armin if he was part of the Survey Corps since she has a mission with Reiner and Bertholdt.

Ultimately, she continued to spare Armin’s life even if it caused her to fail her mission.

Armin found out her true identity because of this but still insisted that she was not a bad person.

On the other hand, Armin hid the fact that he knew the Female Titan's identity, endangering everyone's life.

His affection for Annie deepened after he inherited Bertholdt’s memories as he learned about her past.

When Annie turned into a crystal, he spent four years visiting her daily just to update her on what was happening.

The most obvious hint of their romantic feelings toward each other is when they talk on the ship to Marley.

It was not stated in the Attack on Titan manga and was not shown in the anime whether the two ended up together, but after the three-year time skip, Annie and Armin, are seen together on the boat to Paradis Island.

The glances they gave each other were more intimate than before, hinting that there was progress in their romantic relationship. There's no awkwardness at all, and it looks like they're very comfortable with each other.

Both characters survived the Rumbling and returned to the island where everything started.

They are now Marley Ambassadors who plan to tell their story to the people of Paradis.

Some Attack on Titan fans even speculated that Annie and Armin had babies, and they were shown in the final episode of the anime.

Of course, these are just two children who could pass as Annie and Armin's babies, but it was interesting to see them. Perhaps it's a foreshadowing of a happy family life for Annie and Armin?
