After almost a decade of serving us with intense anime actions and fueling our nightmares with creepy grinning giants, 'Attack on Titan' is finally coming to an end.
'Attack on Titan' Season 4 Part 2 is slated to come out and conclude the story for Eren and the rest of the surviving human race.
Season 4 Part 1 has tremendously impacted many aspects of Eren's character. From being the hero we were rooting for, he seemingly turned into the biggest villain the world has ever seen.
What lies ahead for Eren and his close comrades from the Survey Corps? Here is everything we know.
Initial Release Date: Winter 2022
Season 4 Part 2 of 'Attack on Titan' will release sometime in the winter of 2022. We don't have a specific release date yet, but there is a good possibility that season 4 part 2 will be here between January or March 2022.
Anime shows are usually released according to a regular seasonal schedule. However, 'Attack on Titan' does not follow a similar pattern.
The Winter season usually starts in January, the Spring season begins in April, Summer commences in July, and then the Fall season in October. Unlike other animes, 'Attack on Titan' usually premieres new seasons towards the tail end of the month. The first part of Season 4 was technically under the 2020 Fall season, but it premiered in December instead of October.
This means that Season 4, part 2, will premiere sometime between the first week of January and the end of March.
We are certainly heading for a massive war based on where Part 1 left us. The anime had an even darker turn after Eren killed innocent citizens in an attack on the nation of Marley. The incident has put Eren in dissent against everyone, including his old friends who were forced to join forces to stop him. The former hero is now considered an enemy, and a heavy war is just around the corner.
In the final two episodes, we found out that Eren conspired with his half-brother, Zeke, to sterilize all Eldians in order to end the suffering caused by those with titan powers and those without. This basically translates to genocide because there will be no more children to replace the current generation of Eldians once they die. Nonetheless, killing innocent people in the process can never be justified.
Fans are theorizing that Eren was only pretending to cooperate with Zeke's sterilization plan. The character has always been presented as a kind-hearted person, so there is no way that he could just easily toss his morals away. They think that he is scheming a better plan to end the suffering for everybody.
Indeed, Eren has a plan. The ultimate reason behind all of his seemingly cruel actions will only be revealed in the final chapter of the anime, but we will refrain from giving you further spoilers based on how the manga ended. It's worth noting that Eren's original goal at the beginning of the anime is to exterminate all the titans. But with the conflict between the Eldian and the Marleyan race, things have become even more complicated.
Season 4, part 1, ended with the surviving military forces of Marley dropping out of the sky on The Shiganshina District to seize or kill Eren. The biggest battle is yet to begin, and it's up to Eren now how he will confront these enormous threats.
Kinda. This isn't the official long trailer yet, more like a teaser trailer that concluded episode 75 of Attack on Titan in the Japanese broadcast.
The trailer gave us the vague winter 2022 release window for episode 76, titled 'Sentencing.' It also contains a nostalgic slew of images from the previous seasons of the anime, giving us a clear picture of the long journey we've taken before finally coming to the final season.
The video also teased a cryptic image of a girl who was surrounded by pointing fingers before being seemingly engulfed by a glowing, wormlike light.
The teaser may have left us with more questions than answers, but we are expecting the anime to drop a longer trailer for the final chapter of the 'Attack On Titan.' We will update this space once the official trailer is released. In the meantime, here's the teaser we were talking about.
