I kinda wonder why there aren’t more women in Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin as a practical matter.
3DM gear probably works better with lighter people (and women on average are lighter so…) I mean, the best olympic gymnasts are tiny, flexible girls.
Good example: Mikasa. Also, Rivaille/Levi is below average weight/shortness, which is to his advantage (and possibly gave him a yappy miniature dog complex?). Mikasa and Rivaille are both smaller, compact people, and are presented as some of the best fighters in this series.
You would think that there would be more women. And that shorter military men would become a social fad after a few hundred years.
Is there some lingering social construct going on, presuming that this is some version of ‘our world’ in the distant future? I mean, was this ever explained?? Because in the world of SNK, you are probably much more likely to survive using 3DM gear if you are female or a low-weight male.
