WHAT IS LEVI’S REAL AGE ANYWAYS?
So I heard there was a bit of a kerfuffle over Levi’s age being listed on the wiki as 34, and since clearing up misconceptions is apparently all I’ve been doing in this fandom, I figured I might as well chime in.
In an blog post made on June 08, 2011, Isayama answered a question regarding Levi’s age with:
My image of him is that he’s surprisingly old.
In an interview with Otomedia (August 2013), Isayama has stated that:
I’ve also thought about Levi’s age, but I feel it might be better to hold off a bit on revealing it. Previously, there have been times where I’ve answered readers who asked at autograph signings, but I want to keep it a little secret on an official level.
There is a rumor regarding the ages of the adult characters in Attack on Titan circulating the internet.
This is usually along the lines of:
At [some] autograph signing, Isayama confirmed that Erwin is in his late 30s, Levi is in his early 30s, and Auruo is in his late teens.
with variations in how specific the ages mentioned are. Sometimes Hange is also said to be 2 or 3 years younger than Levi.
Since this is purely based on hearsay, it cannot be confirmed. However based on what we’ve seen in the manga, Auruo’s rumored age would not be unexpected.
The rumored figures for the other characters mentioned would also not be unreasonable given the timeline of the series.
These figures could very well be the ages Isayama gave at an autograph signing, but there is no way to know for sure.
EDIT: Thanks to hime1999 for the Otomedia scan. The line in question has been updated to reflect the actual statement.
