Levi Ackerman is the tritagonist of the Attack on Titan series. He is also known as Captain Levi. Read more to find out about Levi Ackerman’s love interest. Captain Levi is a part of the Survey Corps and is a squad leader. Levi could be considered to be as famous, if not more than the main protagonist himself aka Eren Yeager.
Fans love him not only because he’s one of the most good-looking anime characters out there, but also because of his innate talents. Why is Levi so famous? He’s known as the strongest soldier of humanity and well respected by his subordinates. In addition to that, he’s meticulous and not to forget his signature way of sipping his drink.
Levi isn’t a shonen protagonist but he could easily have one, given his backstory. Levi was born to a Kuchel Ackerman who worked as a prostitute in the Underground region. This means he had been through enough dread and hardships apart from the obvious persistent problems of Titan domination. His rough childhood shaped him into a stoic, and unsocial man.
He’s definitely non-expressive with his emotions which makes him all the more mysterious. There’s a lot we all know about him such as his childhood, his interests, and his loyalties. But we all want the answer to the question we are all wondering.
Does Levi Ackerman Have a Love Interest?
The Attack on Titan series does not focus too much on romance, even platonic. Since there are more obvious problems, the series focuses on the action/dark fantasy elements. Levi Ackerman, being one of the most famous anime men, the man depicted in many Attack on Titan memes, has a large fanbase. He’s one of the most desirable anime men.
His love interest could be taken two ways- romantically and platonically. Levi’s loyalty and affection are clearly seen in one person- Erwin Smith. He seems to understand and follow his order.
Funnily enough, Erwin met Levi when Levi and his squad who were, at the time, thieves, when they planned to attack Commander Erwin Smith. Erwin, acknowledging Levi’s abilities gave him a choice: leave the Underworld and join Erwin’s squad or be sentenced to treason.
Choosing the clear-cut choice to live did him good in a way. Maybe Erwin saved his life and changed his perception of things. Spending time with Erwin definitely changed him, it helped him deal with others with less indifference and crudeness.
This also helped him interact with the likes of the newly joined members of squad 104 of Cadet Corps such as Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlet, Sasha Braus, and many more.
Additionally, in this scenario, whether his clear interest/affection for Erwin was platonic or romantic, we may not know. One thing we know for sure- he was Levi’s closest and most trusted friend.
Who Are His Potential Love Interests?
Another potential ‘love’ interest is Hange Zoe. Their interaction was interesting, to say the least. Their relationship consisted of respect, admiration, and fun. Levi is rarely seen having any sort of relaxation or fun except with Hange.
Though it is not so obvious, Levi is quite sarcastic with her, sometimes bickering which shows that he trusts her enough to interact with her that way. He has not shown any evident liking towards her but fans think of her as a love interest.
Another one of his love interests is Petra, whose father decided to marry her to him after knowing her feelings toward him. It is not clear if he felt anything toward her.
Knowing Levi’s personality, it is hard to say what he actually felt towards any of them. He’s a non-expressive guy, does not trust others easily, and is incredibly strong that he could easily fight the Beast Titan on his own.
Levi’s disposition is complex in some ways. On that note, he could easily have his own series. If Levi was to love someone or be romantically involved, it would either be Erwin or Hange, considering his close relationship with both of them. In the end, how ‘love’ is interpreted is your choice.
