"If Bertolt is in the party, Reiner’s Defense and Attack Power increases by 60%."
Canon on both sides now I’m so glad.
"If Reiner is in the party, Bertolt’s Defense Power becomes 1.7 times normal."
Dear lord, Bertl, your stats are insane.
I just noticed something, as if the stat bonuses weren’t gay enough…
Reiner’s Defense Stat is Bertl’s height in centimeters (192) and Bertl’s Attack Stat is Reiner’s weight in pounds (210).
homo 60% up
This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
