A new Attack on Titan trailer released.
SPOILERS FOR ATTACK ON TITAN FOLLOW:
The latest preview of the second half of the series' final season picks up exactly where the first half left off, and is mostly focused on the upcoming battle between Eren and his former friend and ally, Reiner. The trailer also looks back at the war with Marley and some of the events that have inspired Eren to pursue his current path. The trailer offers a few brief glimpses of the rest of the cast, including Mikasa and Levi, who once again appears in a bloodied and beaten state. The clip ends by once again reminding viewers of The Final Season Part 2's premiere date, Jan. 9. The series will be simulcast internationally on Funimation, Crunchyroll and Hulu.
January's premiere will make the beginning of the end for the Attack on Titan anime series, which first aired in 2013. The last run of episodes will adapt the remaining chapters from Hajime Isayama's original manga, which came to a divisive end in early 2021. The final season of Attack on Titan saw production shift from Wit Studio, which animated the series' first three critically acclaimed seasons, to MAPPA, the prolific animation studio that also produced the anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen and is also currently working on the Chainsaw Man anime.
Fans looking for a more complete picture of the series' story should look to Funimation and Crunchyroll, as both recently added Attack on Titan's original animation disc (OAD) episodes to their streaming libraries. This is the first time the eight 23-minute episodes are available for streaming, as they were previously only exclusively available on DVD and Blu-ray. The OAD episodes tell stories focused on a specific character, such as Levi and Hange, and are adapted from several of the Attack on Titan manga's numerous spinoffs, including the No Regrets manga and the Lost Girls novel series.
Attack on Titan premiered in 2009. The dark fantasy thriller about a world where the last humans are terrorized by massive, man-eating monsters is now one of the most successful manga series of all time, with over 100 million copies in circulation around the globe. New fans can catch up with the previous seasons of the show through Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu, while the complete manga series is now available in English from Kodansha USA.
