2016 MEN of MANLINESS - Round 3: Eren vs. Batou
Eren Yeager from Attack on Titan vs. Batou from Ghost in the Shell
Don't forget to post your vote below in case of ties!
I'm afraid my experience with Ghost in the Shell is fairly limited, but Batou never struck me as having much personality from what I can remember (I haven't had a chance to see the whole series yet)
Gotta vote Eren here
My vote goes to Batou.
Eren gets my vote here
Vote goes to Batou.
I'm not very fond of Ghost in the Shell or Batou, but he's definitely more manly than Eren. I'm voting for Batou.
Posted vote goes to Eren.
I haven't even seen any iterations of GITS and I still say Batou is a hundred times more deserving of being called "manly" than Eren.
Votes to Batou.
Batou gets my vote. I don't think he especially stands out to me, but Eren's so juvenile in his fixation on revenge (Levi's redeeming quality for being an a-hole is giving Eren a beating, imo). I don't like Eren. :)
I actually see it quite differently. I definitely feel like Eren is a man in every sense. Eren's desire for "revenge" is justified, considering what happened to his mom. Any rational person would feel hatred towards an inhuman monster that murdered and ate his/her mom. Eren's hatred towards all titans then is really not that hard to understand. Eren is actually rather human in that respect.
Eren's desire to kill titans has led him to become one of humanity's last hopes of salvation. They would not have been able to seal the wall without him, or deal with many of the issues that came up throughout the show. Eren is every bit a man, having lost his family at a young age, he has since thrown himself fully into the military so that he may join the front lines and kill titans. The Titans have decimated the human population, nearly wiping them out completely. They have torn countless families apart, just like Eren's was, and left so many in pain. Eren hates the Titans for what they did to his mom, and for what they've down to all of humanity. Killing so many, and forcing the rest to live as "livestock." He decided to dedicate himself to becoming stronger, and in doing so he has saved many lives. Eren fights with a passion that burns inside him, to see the flames of humanity ignited once more, and to see an end to the titan menace.

Going with Eren
I'd vote for Batou anyway, even if it wasn't against Eren, who I honestly just don't see as very "manly".
Can't let Batou lose to a borderline psychopath :P
