Eren Jaeger has been through a lot in the popular anime series Attack on Titan. From slaying man-eating giants to gaining the power to become a Titan himself, Eren Jaeger’s personality has grown more complex as Hajime Isayama’s anime series progressed.

Because of this, Eren is now nominated in two contrasting categories at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2022.

Crunchyroll’s annual Anime Awards is now live, and it features the best shows, characters, songs, and voice actors in anime shows released from 2021 to 2022.

Among the nominees is Attack on Titan’s very own Eren Jaeger, who was included in both the Best Protagonist and Best Antagonist categories. His character became more ambiguous during Season 3 of the series.

Last year, Catarina Claes of My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! won the Best Protagonist award while Ryomen Sukuna of Jujutsu Kaisen bagged the Best Antagonist title.
