Come on people, we DON'T KNOW if Mikasa IS or ISN'T a shifter, nobody can asseverate it; so all kind of speculation is welcome. I think she is, and maybe chapter 50 could prove me right... or wrong, who knows .
Calm down a bit people.
There were no wounds, Mikasa was covered in Titan blood that vapoured, the same occured in Episode 9 and Hanjis cape surely is no Titan Shifter.

I mean, sure, Ishiyama did play us for a fool by hiding so many titans right in front of our noses without us realizing, but that doesn't mean that everyone else can/has to be a titan.
I think that I saw a 'he is a titan' theory for EVERY single major character in the past half a year or so..and it's just plain ridiculous.
Same with the people specualting who the Ape titan could be (annie's dad, grisha, levi?!), I mean wtf..just because it turned out that infamous collosal and armored titan turned out to be someone we already knew all along, it doesn't mean that every other shifter has to be someone known as well.
And even in the latest chapter with the reaperance of the titan that ate Eren's mom I saw a bunch of theories about it being Armin or even Moses (Brown in manga)..It's just..I don't even...
(Comes form the one who came up with the theory that Smiley is Moses Brown)
I was not saying that he was a shifter.
I was only playing with the idea that titans are dead people brought back to life and that Smiley is made from Moses.
So no shifter there.
It always has to be someone known to the one reading or watching, even if just a name was dropped and no appearance shown or in reverse.
As said, there are no exceptions.From Naruto or Bleach right up to And Then There Were None.
It's an absolute basic of writing.
I'm not saying one of those 3 is the Titan, but simply that "It doesn't mean that every other shifter has to be someone known" is wrong.

Chill out dude! We're just discussing. It did look like an injury to me in the anime, but I guess it was just titan's blood as you mentioned. After all it's a drowning, not a real photo, so no need to get emotional!
Huh? I am chill, I just strongly disagree on the possibility of her being a titan.
By the way you might disagree with me here but there is definitely an other unknown Titan shifter in the story. You see during his discution with Berthold, Reiner mentioned in chapter 47 that their mission involves finding some coordinate in Eren's world or colony and bringing him along with them to their colony. Christa supposedly knows something about it as a dissendent of the wall cult family. My point is there is still a Titan shifter yet to be seen be it Mikas, Levi or even the potato girl I don't know... Any ideas ?
Mikasa's injury-turn-scar caused by Eren didn't heal immediately did it? If anyone's mentioned that already...
I think Mikasa's someone important. Definitely. The story wouldn't just go about calling her the last of her race for nothing... I wouldn't say she will become a Shifter just yet. But I don't think she's a Shifter as of yet...
And there's the unrevealed plot about her tattoo/embroidery. Surely something fishy's going on. If you look at the anime version, the embroidery somewhat resembles the "Castle-in-the-inner-district-lookalike" in the ED.
But of course, this is the anime version. There's the issue with it being canon or not...
I wouldn't be surprised if there were another shifter among the current cast, but I'm kinda putting my money on "becoming one" rather than "already is one." I know nothing of Isayama's intention (plot-wise,) but I'd have thought from a story-telling perspective Levi wouldn't make a great Shifter, it's just kinda "Huh? "
I was passing by and saw this thread, and wow... this is one crazy plot twist if this ever happens
Do all the top 10 of the 104th squad trainees need to be a Titan shifters? We already have Eren, Reiner, Annie, Bert and Ymir, and I think it's enough to have them as the Titan shifters. I don't want for Mikasa and Armin, and the rest of the top 10 to be titan shifters.
Mikasa can't be a Titan shifter. Why? Because she is NOT. end of story.
if people are referring to that one page in the manga where Mikasa, Jean, Armin and Christa turned into titans, then you lot just got trolled hard by Isayama
Hmm potentially everyone that grisha cured could be a Titan, if you want to go this route. We know that grisha regularly saw mikasa. Perhaps he was administering small doses of Titan serum each time??
Anywho I don't agree or disagree. I don't want this blood on my hands. I don't want to accuse anyone of being a shifter.
But it's not true that the enemy must be someone we know. Even the colossal and armored Titan were introduced before we knew "them". Maybe we'll learn who they are after ((in other words, keep your eyes put for new characters everyone!))
As to mikasas embroidery; that's some trippy Shizz. Maybe mikasa's love is the coordinate? Or maybe mikasa? Or the scarf??? Lol! Just speculations. But I don't think that mikasa being the last of her race and also being with Eren and also with grisha above the basement and also with the embroidery... Don't think those are accidents.

I don't see how this theory ties in with the flashback of when Eren saves Mikasa. It would be too weird if Mikasa was a titan shifter whose mission was to keep Eren alive, and then also coincidentally saved by him as a child. It would be a greater possibility if she was turned into a titan by Grisha, or perhaps she WILL turn into a titan once they figure everything out. But I don't see a huge significance in the idea of Mikasa being a titan shifter. Her purpose in the show is the the hope of the future, along with Levi.
Plus, who wouldn't have a headache hanging around Eren that much ?
To be fair, going by how Isayama operates this one page surely makes one curious.
I think we missed the point that Eren woke up in a dream, notice that Mikasa has longer hair, he cries for no reason and so on... Do you think it is all normal?
