『Shingeki no Kyojin, Attack on Titan - 進撃の巨人

:iconyamatotaichou: @ Jean Kirstein

And finally, as last cosplay of the 2013, I did my beloved hors-Canter by xxHano EHM, I mean... ...JEAN! Jean Kirstein from Snk! (:iconyoudontsayplz:)

He's my favoure characters and the one I wanted to cosplay the most! >w< He's my favourite because he's the most "human" between all the characters of the series. I mean, expecially in the beginning of the story he's a totally normal guy who wants to join the soldiers for then join the Military Police Brigade for have the most reliable and safe life for his future. I think the majority of people would choose this option too X°D But then, after the death of his best buddy (yeah...buddy....eheheheh..everybody knows what happened turing that 3 years of training in the military academy..In the dorms :iconifyouknowhatimeanplz: BD ) he understood that something had to be changed, and he decided to join the Survey Corps to try to discover something about titans and their origins and also because the death of Marco was not in vain.
I like also the way he interacts with the other characters, he's always like "WTF GUYS WHAT ARE U DOING" because the majority of the other characters only think about their interest.. XD For example Eren only thinks about killing titans (I SO LAUGH WHENEVER THEY HAVE A FIGHT AHAHHA JEANHORSE 4 PRESIDENT), Mikasa only thinks about hunting Eren while Jean tries to catch her attention, Sasha only thinks to eat, Connie only thinks to try not to die, Annie run away, Bertl and Reiner..Well.. No spoiler! The only one who interacts in a normal way with him is Armin who gots a brain X°DDD BUT I DON'T SHIP THEM (just my tastes~), I still prefer the JeanMarco XD

For this deviation I choose this title because is the name of my favourite OST of the whole anime. It represents the perfect meaning of the spirit of the soldiers. I think that it totally fits the character of Jean: for me it was written for him, despite of what most of people think that it was written for Eren and Mikasa or Levi. But hey, it clearly talks about a guy that doesn't want to fight against titans (Jean wanted to join Gendarmerie while both Eren,Mikasa and Levi ALWAYS want to fight the titans!), nobody wants to die too fast (Jean is always scared to die), he can sees somebody's face and hear his voice (Jean thinks often about Marco and also has visions of him), he remember that day of grief (the day when Marco died and Jean was in a catatonic state), etc.etc.etc.   Yeah this probably is what my deviated mind thinks but..Is so trueee!!! X°°DD
Here a cover I found on youtube that I really like!~… But I like the original song too :)

In one of the next months I'll do again this cosplay with the rest of the group!^D^ I'm looking forward for it! :w00t:
