well it's the same voice actor, so I'm just gonna take it and run
i think it will end happily with all the titans defeated. i read somewhere it was supposed to end tragically but the mangaka started deciding differently

Maybe this is because I'm biased and I'm a fan of the Jean+Mikasa and Eren+Annie pairings, but I don't see this series ending with Mikasa and Eren knocking boots.
Likewise, Mikasa has been nothing but devoted and loyal to Eren, but Eren hasn't been treating her well. He doesn't realize how much Mikasa is in love with him yet, and when he does that's when she'll likely die. And, like with his mother, Eren will be filled with more regret due to how he treated Mikasa the entire time.
This will be the catalyst onto his next chapter of his life which might explain the enigmatic beginning of the entire story.

It's pretty clear that she is in love with him, short of her actually saying out loud that she is. Yet, her body language has been consistent with her having romantic feelings for Eren.
In an ideal world we would see all the protagonists victorious, Eren finally goes to his fathers basement by using his coordinate powers and discovers a weapon his father built which turns titans back into humans. The beast titans whereabouts are unknown to everyone but Annie who remains encased in the crystal.
ideally? with lesbian queens of course
and armin living with annie in a castle, travelling, niice
i care more about the latter
hm. probably at some point the walled country will be completely destroyed, encased titans awakening. everyone would be eaten... yee... no, actually till that time they'd already work out something; eren'd learn what's the (almost) whole deal. but almost everyone would die anyway. armin'd survive he has this aura of a creepy indestructible kid. reiner'll die. some weird shit will happen to berry. idk about annie
. her bitch powersmight protect her. besides she can always encase herself in the crystal and dumdumdum live forever. maybe. guess so. i doubt erwin's seen thru enough for the coup d'etat to work; and even if, it might still not change anything, really...
i just don't see how possibly this could not end in blood, bwhah

idk i'm pretty sure eren will die
the central point of his entire character is killing titans; this is pretty much the first thing that's established about him, and though he matures throughout the plot, it's still his sole drive and motivation. with that, once humanity gains the upper hand, he has nothing. even if he does survive in the end, he'll be an empty shell basically. he'll still dream of the war every night, he'll still look over his shoulder all the time, he'll feel uneasy and unsafe and on the edge for as long as he lives.
this is not to say that other characters won't be affected by the war in the long term, but most of the others have more to them than just being a soldier. the way i see it, most of them were people who became soldiers; they had other interests, other life goals, dreams, hopes, expectations. not eren. eren was always a soldier. all he ever wanted to do was fight. if they do achieve peace, or at least a clear path to victory, he has no purpose anymore.
(i think levi is bound to die for pretty much the same reason, actually.)
i'm not sure what would happen to mikasa if eren were to die, since he is her central point just as much as killing titans is his. when eren was thought dead, back on the battle of trost district arc, she carried on fighting, though with much less finesse and regard for her own safety. without the battle to focus on... she may live, but i don't think she'll be able to carry on with her life. their relationship was never very healthy, so i have serious doubts she'd be able to give it a healthy ending.
i can't really see armin dying, though. to me, if eren was always a soldier, armin was never one. i think this really shows at the beginning, when he was completely out of his depth, but even after finding something he's good at inside the military he's not really a soldier - the place he finds for himself doesn't involve fighting or sacrifice, it involves thoeries and plotting. i don't know if it's just me, but i almost forget he even is a soldier sometimes. if the war were to end, he'd have lots to look forward to, even if eren and mikasa both were to die. he'd grieve for them, of course, but he'd be able to move forward.
i only have set theories for them, i think. i'm really curious as to what will happen to erwin.
And make no mistake, Armin is a soldier through and through. He may be weak (and I don't think he will be that way for long, since he is part of the Survey Corps), but he has the mind and spirit of a soldier. Eren is actually less of a soldier than Armin, because Eren often acts with his heart, rather than his head.
It is hard to say what will happen to Mikasa if Eren dies for real, but I don't think the same thing that happened in Trost will happen. In an interview, Isayama stated that Jean would have a chance with Mikasa if Eren died. Considering how Eren is probably meant to die, I think that it might be possible that Jean and Mikasa will end up together.
Erwin will probably die at the end of the current arc, or at the beginning of the next one. He has resigned his position as head of the survey corps, and has almost fulfilled his role in humanity's victory against the Titans. The only thing that remains for Erwin to do is to play some key role along with Pixis later on in this arc and that's probably it for him.

It'll turn out that he wasn't joking when he said the Titans eat everyone.
Other than that
-Beast Titan decides the whole Titan experiment isn't working, so instead he makes intelligent apes, Eventually giving Charlton Heston a rude surprise.
-Final battle against the true Titan Master. Eren is hopelessly overpowered, and no one elses attacks even make a scratch. But then the belief of humanity of everyone in Eren empowers him and he transforms into his true final form: And Ultraman! A single specium ray kills the endboss, and it turns out the series was really a Prequel to the Ultraman franchise.
-Suddenly a technologically advanced group from across the ocean shows up in mecha and easily exterminate the titans. With Lasers.
Serious Ideas- Well a big thing is what the Warriors group are really like. That is going to affect everything. First idea, the Titans are beaten, but a new war begins, since their is too much hostility between the Walls and the Warriors, showing that just because one war ends, it doesn't mean another won't begin.
Or the really depressing one.
The Titan's are beaten, but Eren loses his mind and is locked into Titan form, and looses his mind. Mikisha tries to snap him out of it, but Eren kills her proving he is too far gone. Eren is eventually killed, and everyone rejoices that the Titans are now gone. Except for Armin, who now hates mankind for celebrating when his friends were killed, and becomes bitter.
I'd like to see Mikasa become a Titan. Mikeren tag team?
How about the unexpected? Levi becomes a Titan against humankind, he never really "hated" Titans. He's always been kind of neutral. I wouldn't be surprised if Erwin's arm came back either.

Everyone will die and Eren will be the last one to go and witness all of his friends' death. Then he wakes up from his dream from the first episode where Mikasa woke him up and he cried.
I like the idea of Eren using his newfound 'Titan controlling powers' to awaken the Titans within the walls, to either defeat the rest of the Titans, or the Warriors or whoever, and possibly killing Eren in the process, a sacrifice to ensure the survival of mankind on earth, plus it gets ride of the walls.
