So I’m not sure if anyone else has mentioned or noticed this, but I found this really interesting. Levi’s and Hanji’s injuries are exact inversions of each other.
Hanji’s left eye is injured, but everything else is fine.
Literally everything but Levi’s left eye is bandaged. (and in the same shape as her eye patch, no less)
I honestly feel like this symbolically represents the fact that Levi and Hanji complete each other. And I don’t even necessarily mean in a romantic sense.
They complement each other – which we have seen countless times in the past. Not that Hanji is not strong, or that Levi is not smart, but I think we all know what each of them is known for and what they excel at.
With Levi in this state, I can only imagine that we will see more of them working together, complementing each other’s skills, and depending on each other more than ever before.

We gotta talk about why commenting in tags is poison for the artist.
Hey personages. I like and/or tolerate Tumblr culture as much as the next person, but we’ve got to talk about the habit of putting comments in the tags.
Everyone’s pointed out that reblogs are essential to artists and writers on tumblr because it’s the only way to get eyes on our work, but this goes beyond that.
I’ve been on this site for longer than I care to admit, but as an oldie and one who doesn’t like to have a lot of plugins running, I never had XKIT, so it is only now that I’ve had the ability to check tag updates on my posts.
And for years, I’ve felt like I was screaming into the void, my work apparently making very little impression, because people were posting all kinds of nice, encouraging comments... where I could not see them.
I had no idea people were saying things like this:
These kind, encouraging comments are all from the tags of one of my DynoGuard Art Roundup Posts. DynoGuard is a concept I’m trying to bring to series.
If the artist isn’t able to easily find this kind of feedback, then what hope does an almost certainly less technically savvy producer have? “I would watch/buy/play this” is the kind of comment that can help move the needle on a creator getting opportunities.
I’m not calling out people for doing tumblr the way tumblr is done. It’s just that the system isn’t working. As such, updates to that system are needed.
TL:DR Please, if it’s art, if it’s writing, put the feedback in the reblog comments.
