Since the first season of the anime Attack on Titan: The Final Season premiered at the end of 2020, the character Gabi Braun has become one of the most hated characters by many fans. Especially in many Western countries. It’s so common that a popular forum in Japan opened a thread about it.
Many Japanese fans wonder why this character is so hated outside of Japan! Because in Japan, Gabi is not hated, but instead seen as a beautiful little girl.
So why is Gabi hated? The first reason may be because Gabi defeated one of the most popular characters, Sasha. He then escapes the Survey Corps by killing the guard and main character Eren Yeager.
Gabi was commented on when she was young
Gabi was trained by the military from a young age as a candidate for the position of heir to the Armored Titan’s power. He is also a child who has to absorb incomplete knowledge of the world around him, thus growing hatred towards his own Eldia people on the island of Paradis. The hatred gradually turned into a strong belief in Gabi’s mind, leading her to believe that “the people of Paradis are scary demons”. Because of his very rude actions, according to the comments of many people, Gabi is a young buffalo who has not experienced real life.
Japanese fans think Gabi is so cute
Here are some positive comments about Gabi from Japanese fans:
– In Japan, she is very popular because she is a beautiful girl and has the voice of Ayane Sakura.
– I like Gabi, she has a great growth.
– I like this girl, I want to see her happy in the future.
– Gabi and Falco are important characters, as if they were the next generation of protagonists, but in the last episode they were treated very badly.
– It all depends on the point of view. If we looked at it from a Paradis’ point of view, we would hate Gabi. But if we looked at it from Marley’s point of view, we wouldn’t be able to see this girl.
So how do you feel about this girl? Do you hate Gabi?
