Well my OTP is completely ruined if they are blood related, I was really shocked after reading chapter 56.. but there is still a chance they might be cousins? We will see later but I really hope they aren't blood related, 1 month till the next chapter... ZzZZzZZz
I think the answer to that question is highly dependent on whether the Ackerman is a bloodline or an inherited clan name where people of the same clan, regardless of blood, inherits the same last name.
But, it's already been stated in the earlier chapters that the Ackerman is in fact a bloodline. Following this fact, it could be said that both Mikasa and Levi are either cousins (a possibility since we do not know how many siblings Kenny actually has since he only mentioned his sister at this point of the story) or at most, a distant relative to each other through their bloodlines.
It's already known that Levi is Kenny Ackerman's nephew through his sister, Kuchel Ackerman who was a prostitute in the underground where some of the Ackerman's family have hidden themselves after the Reiss family had tried to wipe them out. Kuchel at the time was pregnant with Levi and by the time Kenny found her, she was already dead and that was the first time I believe that he met Levi. Without telling him of their relations, Kenny 'adopted' him and trained him hard in order to survive the world inside the walls as an Ackerman. But Kenny knew that he was far from an ideal parent which is why, after teaching Levi all that he knew, he abandoned him without saying goodbye.
As to whether Levi Ackerman is a half blood oriental like Mikasa due to his physicality is quite debatable as well since we do not know the identity of his dad.
And as for Mikasa, it is not known at this point what's her relationship is with Kenny Ackerman or whether they have any relationships at all. Whether he is her uncle is yet debatable. But it was stated that while some of the Ackerman did fled underground, one part of the Ackerman family had actually fled to the south, over Shiganshina District but they were still living in poverty. Mikasa's dad could very be in this one part of the Ackerman's family who fled to the south. Also, Kenny hasn't been mentioned to have known Mikasa's dad at this point in the story hence, it is safe to say that the only way Levi and Mikasa are related is only through their bloodline unless stated otherwise in the latest chapters.
Well...yes they fucken are I mean look at them they look alike, come on black hair, gray eyes, kind of same skin tone a little but still. Mikasa and Levi are related because Levi mother is related to Mikasa dad, you think it's Mikasa mom who's an Ackerman but she's not it's really her dad. Mikasa dad never wanted talk about his past life like he never knew that he has a nephew and Levi never met his uncles well only one. Levi and Mikasa are related! plus if anyone ship them then your really nasty! Levi and Mikasa are related and they only care about Eren nothing more.
If they are related, I won't be too surprised... they do both possess the near fearless and agressive fighting skills, with the acception of Levi's reverse blade-holding technique and attack, both have the same steely-eyed look when they took on The Female Titan in the Forrest of Giant Trees. Lastly, like Levi, Mikasa can be blunt and forward in what she says... she can call Levi "Shorty" and get away with it!
I think what matters is the age difference between the two and as we can learn Levi is older like 30 or something like that and Mikasa is a teen or something but we can say that Levi could be a uncle to Mikasa maybe Levi is her father's or mother's brother
Well there was no real answer to this question. Though they could be realated. Levi could be mikasa' solder brother. This is only possible if he was born about 15 years before mikasa was. If that possiblity is true than before (or when mikasa was little) he went to go join the scouts.
The other way they could be related is that Levi is mikasa' uncle. (Mikasa's mom's or dad's brother.)
There is one more way they could be related. Mikasa and captain Levi are related. In this way they are kinda not related but I will get to that. Levi and mikasa could have been in the same clan too.
Hope this helped :D
I believe that they are half brother and sister. I think they have the same dad but different mothers. If Mikasa's dads name is Kenny then they are indeed half siblings. We all know Mikasa's moms was killed by an Axe, but Levi's died underground. On the official wikia it tells that Kenny Ackerman raised Levi part time of his youth. If any one knows Mikasa's fathers name let me know.
I mean ackerman as we recently learned are people given titan like strength meaning they are not all related the first however many were all given the last name ackerman so levi and mikasa could have no relation and the last name isn't because their family line just simply because they are titan humans as I call them and no the first ones were not related because there were two many in a certain generation to be in the same family, also if your wondering where I got this answer the most recent chapters said an ackerman is someone who has titan like powers also eren when he spoke of the ackermans to mikasa about them being slaves to royals well is also simply because the kings will making titans listen and they are titan people you see. And one of the last things is simply there is no way in 100 years there was only one or two humans that were given titan like strength also that would mean the first ones never would've reproduced so there for just cause their ackermans doesn't mean they have any relation and if they did it prolly already would've been stated to a point, Ackerman is not their family last name it is their titan powers last name.
