THIS MAKES ME HIGHLY UNCOMFORTABLE.
can we talk about the colossal titan’s fucking proportions though
why does this fandom never talk about the colossal titans fucking proportions
I feel like the Attack on Titan fandom doesn’t give enough love to the Titans themselves and their terrifying, uncanny valley proportions.
They’re like the best part of the show.
…except the Colossal Titan’s proportions are realistic given his build? Like, you seriously cannot expect a 60 meter class to be built the same way as a 15 meter - even with how unbeliveably weightless the titans’ flesh is.
Colossal has the thick legs to support the entire weight of his body and a thick torso to facilitate the balance of having such a tall body. The reason why his arms are so thin in comparison is because they don’t need to support much of anything, really. Having arms that are in accurate proportion to the rest of his body would only slow the Colossal’s speed even more - something he absolutely does not need, given how slow he is already.
Furthermore, having a larger head would require having a larger and thicker neck to support it. Again, something that Colossal absolutely does not need, given how titans are only vulnerable at the back of the neck. Increasing the size of the weak spot is just suicide, especially in the case of Colossal, who does not have the speed whatsoever to effectively protect this vulnerability.
I think I found Hanji’s blog
