Who the heck > “Jean’s a horse”
updated July 12, 2014
Eren started it! Oh really? Not exactly true, as Eren has only said Jean having a “horse face” That name however, inspired SnK fans to elaborate more on…
This shot of a page from manga chapter 31 has Eren saying “I don’t have a horse face like his (Jean’s)”.
and once again, in chapter 53!
(and I think that name’s still unknown to Jean As of chapter 59, I think that’s no longer the case!)
Let’s add Hitch to the list of people who called Jean a “horse face”. This time, Jean was there to hear it – unlike the times when Eren said it behind his back.
Anime’s showing of Jean’s seemingly fondness towards his mount does not really have anything to do with him being called a “horse” or “horse face”; but fans do use examples such as the above-right shot of the three faces as evidence of Jean having a “horse face” (long face)
Now what has a horse face? A horse. There.
RECAP: Jean is NOT a horse; but SnK fans do like to call him as one.
I can’t say these are completely canon since they don’t come from either then manga or the anime; but they are of official goods/games.
Apparently, horse is what best represents Jean.
Here are just three of many (I think) “Jean horse” related works publicly distributed online.
From a mock evolution chart, to a parody of the anime original scene in episode 24 (click on it for the gif), right up to Jean being the “best horse”.
