Leaving every fan with mixed feelings, the anime sensation “Attack on Titan” reached its climax a few days ago.
Since then, not only has it been hard for true fans to accept the fact that their favorite anime series has ended, but it has been even more challenging for the voice actors of this series.
On November 8. 2023, the official wiki X of Attack on Titan posted a heart-touching video in which Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackermann’s voice actress) was saying this series’s last lines.
After decapitating Eren in the anime, Mikasa buries him under the tree where it all started. After three years, she stays near Eren’s grave, talking to it like Eren is still with her.
But after she remembers the time she spent with Eren, she starts to cry as she wants to see him again. Suddenly, a strong wind blows, and a bird wraps Mikasa’s scarf around her as it is about to fall.
Mikasa smiles and says her thanks to Eren for wrapping the scarf around her. These were the last lines of Yui Ishikawa as Mikasa Ackermann.

After saying this line, Ishikawa can hardly control her emotions and starts to cry, but she tries to cover herself by putting the script book in front of her face.
Yuki Kaji (Eren’s voice actor) and Inoue Marina (Armin’s voice actress) later comfort Ishikawa by hugging her as they end their 10-year-long journey of voicing the characters of this series.

Feelings of a Dedicated Voice Actor/Actress
In the anime industry, selecting a voice for a character involves a tedious process of screening hundreds of voice actresses.
After months of hard work, a voice actor is selected. Yui Ishikawa faced the same circumstances and voiced Mikasa for about ten years.
Not only did she portray the character of Mikasa perfectly, but she also got attached to her, given she has spent nearly a decade voicing.
So, crying over putting ten years of hard work to a conclusion is understandable, given she gave her everything into voicing Mikasa Ackermann.
