The ending of the series was, to say the least, one of the most sad endings the show could have gotten. Also adding to the fact that we will never be able to see Eren, Mikasa, and Armin together again.

The ending has left everyone who was attached to the series in a deep state of sadness. Everybody wanted a happy ending, but the story from the get-go was destined to not get one.
The end of Attack on Titan and its meaning
Many people are happy about the end, while others are very sad about it. One of the major topics of discussion is the ending, which some fans and viewers find very wrong.
The series showed in the end that no matter what, the hate cycle will continue and that Eren’s method of saving Paradise ended up being a waste, as a few centuries later it was destroyed.
Towards the end, we see Mikasa and the other survey corps member visiting the grave of Eren, and later on, Mikasa visits the grave with a man who is not shown.
Some believe it to be Armin, while others believe it to be her husband, who visited Eren with her. The answer is left to the audience to decide.
In the final bits of the episode, we see that Paradise has transcended technologically, and many centuries later, it gets destroyed by the world.
The message that the series tried to convey is that hatred can never be ended by violence, and it is an everlasting cycle that will keep on happening irrespective of the choices made.
