How Annie and Armin’s Relationship Progressed in Attack on Titan
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.
Does Annie Like Armin?
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.
