I’m pretty sure that Mike is dead, although.. is he the only one we never see actually die? Sure, we don’t see Marco die either, and I know that some believe that it’s that other guy that Jean finds, but I’m pretty sure that Jean was close enough with Marco to be able to recognize his face, even in that state. 

We’re sure that all the others who died are dead because we get to see them die. But we only get to see Mike struggle, don’t we? I still believe that he’s dead, though, that was just an observation. 

However, as said before, his death might be brought up by the golden trio later on in the manga. Remember how long it took for Eren to find out that Marco was dead, for example. So maybe they just don’t know it yet. 

It’ll be interesting to find out though. And I hope they eventually will bring it up. 

Yeah, Marco’s dead for sure because his corpse is found. (Theories aside, he’s still easily enough recognized by Jean. And he’s wearing the uniform and everything. That’d be one helluva sneaky conspiracy to find another dude, get him in the uniform, and then kill him—which is what would have to happened for Marco to be alive.)

That said, I don’t think a corpse will be found for Mike. We see a lot of people die, or in the process of dying. For example, Gelgar may not have been dead before the camera panned up to the top of the tower, and Nanaba definitely isn’t dead (she seems to be still struggling). Personally I think Gelgar’s head wound had already allowed him to pass out, but Nanaba’s about to die because her femoral artery has been severed, so even if the titans don’t eat her, well, she’ll bleed to death within five minutes easy.Unless somehow the titan’s teeth are hot enough to cauterize the artery, which is such a cracked theory I can’t quite wrap my mind around it.

I mean, theories aside we’re still pretty sure that Gelgar and Nanaba are dead, even though we don’t see them actually dead. Marco: we had a corpse. Hannes: we see his spinal cord. Levi’s squad: we see ripped in half/torn apart/dead and staring into space. So it’s like Mike is the first guy who just never really came back that we’ve seen, but we know from Ilse Langnar that it happens to other people, too. Of course, the last time we see Mike, it’s basically hopeless for him—he’s crying because he’s so afraid or horrified or whatever. He’s definitely dead in my book.

(And if he is brought back alive somehow, I’ll flip a freakin’ table, I’d be so mad.)

Yeah. Pretty much. Although.. I don’t think I would be mad if they brought him back, only that.. they’d need a pretty damn good explanation for me to actually accept it. More than anything now I just want his death to be recognized by those closest to him. So that’s all I’m hoping for now. 

(I like how a question about Nanaba turned into a conversation about Mike’s death xD)

Wow, I wasn’t expecting such a long answer, but I’m thankful! 

Well.. I’m re-reading the manga now so I don’t know how credible what I’m going to say is, but do they know that Mike is dead? Did anyone find him? Also.. I’m thinking that even though it hasn’t gotten a reaction yet, it might still come. The others have had quite a lot to deal with after all. But if it never comes, well.. I think I’m gonna be right where you seem to be. Specially since it seemed that Erwin and Mike had quite a bond, and it seems they’ve known each other the longest, if ACWNR is anything to go by. I’m also thinking that maybe he didn’t get such a big mention because he isn’t considered as big of a main character as Erwin, Levi and Hanji are. And if that’s it, well.. that’s just rude. 

And yes, the treatment Nanaba got (I’m not as familiar with Gerger, sadly) is what made me question what role she had since she seemed to be left with quite a lot of responsibility on several occasions. But maybe they’re the oldest squad they had among Mike’s, Hanji’s and Levi’s and maybe that’s why. 

They’re all quite interesting characters and I’m glad with any tiny little information I get about them x) That goes for all the characters in SNK

Another taste of my improvement. However the right one isn’t done, still some stuff i wanna fix, like the hands and also add some shadows but i simply didn’t have the patience to.. x)

Can I just ask. What rank does Nanaba have? Is she part of Mike’s squad like Moblit is part of Hanji’s or..?

I’ve read the manga, but I just can’t get a grip on it.. so does anyone know?

Nanaba’s a member of Squad Mike along with Gerger, Rene, and Henning O:!. 

Yeah. For the most part I find Squad Mike to be really interesting. Their dynamic is completely different from the other squads. It’s something I should be talking about, but I’m a lazy piece of garbage.

That said, I’m not sure how I feel about ranks in the SC. It seems there aren’t very many ranks, though you could argue that Nanaba’s rank is higher than any of the 104th (because she is on a squad member’s personal squad).

That aside, despite the fact that Gerger/Gelgar was put in change of the South Team by Mike in Mike’s absence, that doesn’t really indicate that Gelgar is of a higher rank within the squad than Nanaba. Gelgar was probably already going with the south team.

(It’s taken me a while to reach this conclusion, but I came to it after considering the dynamic of Squad Mike in its entirety.)

That aside, the manga and anime get confusing because Squad Mike doesn’t stay together during the Female Titan Crapshoot. In fact, Squad Mike splits up and acts as team leaders.

Why is this?

Well, it’s really hard to say, but my personal (really dumb) theory is that most of Squad Mike fits into the “long-term vet” category (Nanaba is pictured, but I think Gelgar could easily fit into that category, too). Because Erwin only told select people (who were already in the Corps 5 years ago), I think it’s safe to say that Erwin would want to spread those knowledgeable people out. Let’s not forget, too: the SC is probably short soldiers. We only ever do see two squad leaders (Mike and Hange), so it’s clear there are several sections of the SC that haven’t been replaced yet by new soldiers. That would almost require veterans to take charge of smaller groups because they lack the extra team leaders to do it. (Ness was a team leader, not a squad leader, but assuming that the 104th just added at least two more squads to the SC, they wouldn’t have any legit team leaders left alive to take charge of all of them. IMO.)

But I got a little crazy here: yeah, Nanaba’s a member of Squad Mike. 

We’re still not sure where Thomas (the messenger/rider Mike sends to…is it Trost?) fits into this, but I don’t think he’s actually a part of Squad Mike, since all the other squads only have four members each under a squad leader. I feel like Thomas was probably with them to act as a messenger since he’s the best rider in the SC.

The reason people in the fandom are still upset about Mike’s death is probably rooted in the fact that not only did Mike die, but his entire squad died, too, and it was never acknowledged by any of the veteran characters who should by all means be reacting to the death of five people they probably knew pretty darn well. (If nothing else, at least Mike, Nanaba, and Gelgar were around for a long time.)

To make it worse, they didn’t even die together in front of people; Mike just “never came back”; the rest of Mike’s squad died in front of a handful of the 104th, which is sad because the kids acknowledge their deaths, but the people who actually knew them (i.e., Erwin, Hange, Levi) never even mentioned it.

Now, maybe this was to save the manga from getting emotional or something (I have a theory about how Isayama kills off characters, too, btw), but whatever.

I’m troubled that it’s not acknowledged because a.) an entire squad died, and b.) Erwin was good friends with Mike and Nanaba was shown as a trusted veteran soldier, so it’s pretty freakin’ obvious that Erwin knew them both rather well, yet their deaths aren’t something acknowledged by any of the veterans! NOT EVEN HANGE, WHO WAS THE NEXT VET ON THE SCENE.
