'Attack on Titan' Reveals Mikasa's New Look

When it comes to Attack on Titan, there are few girls as beloved as Mikasa. Eren may be the series’ lead, but fans fell for his pseudo-sister when she displayed her full-on skills as a soldier. Now, Attack on Titan has updated the heroine’s looks, and fans are understandably freaking out.

The last time fans saw Mikasa, the heroine looked like she always did. Her medium-length hair was worn down, and her Survey Corps uniform consisted of lots of layers. Mikasa donned the standard tan military jacket with a tucked-in white blouse harnessed in with leather straps. She also wore white pants and knee-length boots which had straps connecting them to her 3-D Maneuvering Gear.

However, that is not what Mikasa looks like nowadays.

The latest chapter of Attack on Titan confirmed Mikasa got a makeover while Eren infiltrated Marley. When she showed up to save her friend from the War Hammer Titan, Mikasa was seen wearing a very dark outfit and shorter hair.

While her bangs looked much the same, Mikasa appears to have given herself a shorter length overall. As for her outfit, Mikasa wore an all-black ensemble with even more belts than her last get-up. A hard exoskeleton looks like it was added to her uniform to hold up a new gear system, and she has an odd piece of metal armor placed over her chest.

Luckily, the chest armor is not shaped for her breasts. Fans are already questioning how necessary the conspicuous piece really is. It is kind of oddly placed, after all...

For those unfamiliar with Attack on Titan, the series was originally created by Hajime Isayama. Starting its run in Kondansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009, the series has been collected into 23 volumes as of 2017. It's set in a world where the last remnants of humanity live within a walled city in order to escape the danger of the Titans, a race of giants monsters that eats humans. Eren Yeager joins the military with his two childhood friends Mikasa and Armin after the Titans break through the wall and attack his hometown.
