But what about Spike Spiegel?

What about him?

There's a bunch of headcanons about him being Jewish based on the name, the hair, and his Israeli-made gun.
I mean he's obviously not intended to be Jewish, but if people feel happy claiming him, then okay I guess?
/not one to talk, since I'm in the LEVI IS TOTES JEWISH camp of SNK. Though in my defense, I do not do it very seriously.

How is he obviously not intended to be Jewish? It's not like all the Bebop characters are supposed to be Japanese.

I think that the creators were asked about it, and it wasn't intentional? I've done some internet searching in the past and haven't found any admissions that he "is" Jewish, though it'd be kind of cool if some Word of God turned up.

I *am* however supplied with.... somewhat of a Word of God regarding Levi, because I talked to some of the shows animators and was like HE'S JEWISH RIGHT and they said LOL MAYBE so that counts I guess :D :D :D

With the way Isayama loves his WWI/WWII imagery, I think it's possible for the Ackerman clan to be coded as Jewish.

Omg, don't get me started on Isayama and WWII imagery... there's some really uncomfortable stuff in there in terms of the way he's presenting the story. Like I hate to jump out and shout that he's a Japanese nationalist, but... it kind of looks like it :X

I mean the references are so messy there that I'm not sure how to read the Ackermans at this point, because the plot isn't actually making much sense atm anyway. And we haven't heard anything about the Ackermans in a while...
But like you say, it could be! Like, at least the Jews get to be cool, I guess...?

I knew that part (and I'm super down with Spike being Jewish), but I was more wondering what he had to do with ASOAIF. :P

haha I assumed that they were referring to Jewish headcanons with little basis?

Where is this camp? Because that has totally crossed my mind about Levi and that entire family, but I thought I was the only one.

Yessss right? I didn't want to go into it, because spoilers, but yeah. There's some support! (also the last name is a Jewish one too).

It's a small camp, but I've seen a bunch of stuff. There's a bunch of fics on Ao3 featuring Jewish Levi (I confess to having contributed to it, in the early days of fandom). While it never became as ubiquitous as that awful Levi-is-French stupidity, there were a bunch of people in that corner.
