Following the premiere of Episode 8, MAPPA has released a special illustration for Sasha Blouse. They posted in on the official Twitter account, and you can check it out below:
In addition, they note that Cygames Pictures participated in the production of the episode and thank them for it. Meanwhile, both the character and the franchise are currently trending after the episode, and there’s hundreds of thousands of tweets already. Sasha was a precious character, and she deserves the illustration by MAPPA and all the love fans have for her. But I don’t think Gabi deserves all the hate, she did exactly what Eren would have done if he had the strength back when titans first attacked.
And in case you are one of the people who hasn’t heard of it yet somehow. Attack on Titan is a popular Japanese manga series by Hajime Isayama. It is currently airing the final season of its anime adaptation. You can also read the full synopsis of the story:
Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans. Creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city’s walls. But when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever…
