MAPPA, the animation studio responsible for the hit ‘Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season’ or ‘Attack on Titan, confirmed that the season will end with a batch of episodes arriving in 2022.
Studio MAPPA and SelectaVision, publisher, and distributor that broadcasts the episodes of the series through its official portal in Spain, confirmed that the last season of the Attack on Titan anime would have a second part with more chapters. It was one of the great news of last March, just when fans of the successful adaptation were enjoying the fourth season through portals such as Selecta, Crunchyroll, and Funimation. But when will these episodes arrive?
Attack on Titan Part 2 will premiere in 2022
The series, based on the award-winning manga and bestseller of the New York Times, has more than 100 million copies sold and still one of the Japanese best-selling titles of all time. The phenomenon awakened by Attack on Titan is so great, that today the number of its fans in the millions. This series, launched in 2013, tells the story of a society that survives in a huge fortified city with high walls. Its purpose and function? To protect himself from the Titans, grotesque giants that devoured all people. Over the years it has been gaining followers, and its anime adaptation has managed to break all records in its broadcast. However, as the episodes of the fourth season progressed, one thing became clear to us: there were still chapters missing in order to cover all the events narrated in the original manga.
The release date of the last episodes of the last season of Shingeki no Kyojin, a Japanese title, has been officially confirmed to be released in the coming winter of 2022. Interestingly, everything has remained a secret until the last minute, since the announcement was made at the end of episode 16 of the fourth season, seeking to amaze viewers who saw how the final season was divided into two rounds in order to maintain the tension. and the attention among the fans who have accompanied the production for so many years. But the truth is that Studio MAPPA had quite clear what to do since this culmination was announced in anime format.
Netflix Japan already announced in some tweets that it would be divided in two this past season and that after the premiere of the first episodes, the series would have a second part. In addition, in the fall of 2020, the sound director Masafumi Mima tweeted a photo of a desk and a script in which it was intuited that this would end up happening. “I got a letter from the director Yuuichirou Hayashi about the song selection in the first and second episodes of Attack on Titan. Based on the director’s courteous response, I think I’ll have to go back to work, but I have to say it’s a fun job. I wonder if I will reach the soul of the director this time “, asked Masafumi, who also he reported afterward that the first part of Attack on Titan was already ready and delivered. Logically, the composer deleted the tweet, since Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 1 could be read in the photographed script. White and bottled.
How many episodes will he count under his belt? That’s a good question. If we take into account that the first part has had 16 chapters, we hope that the second round will have an estimated length of between 16 and 18 episodes, but there is nothing confirmed or official.
A common practice in anime and on television
Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season and its division of episodes is not something unusual, and although it seems like a kind of publicity or marketing stunt – in a way, it is – it has already been seen on previous occasions. In fact, the third season had a similar split, a practice known as Cour or broadcast block organization. They are usually organized in chapters that are broadcast through television or streaming services for three months based on the physical seasons, and with divisions generally composed of 10 to 13 episodes.. We could specify that what Studio MAPPA has done on this occasion is a split-cour when a single anime season takes a break of several months before resuming its broadcast and weekly distribution.
The series narrates the adventures of the hero Eren Jaeger and his friends in their fight against the aforementioned Titans, who are taking humanity to the brink of extinction. His style, halfway between an action anime with political plots and fantastic epics – there are few who say that it mixes the best of Neon Genesis Evangelion with the best of Game of Thrones – has conquered half the planet. The fourth season picks up the story four years after the end of the third season, expanding the anime universe and culminating in an epic war that will determine the fate of humanity. Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season aired internationally on Crunchyroll in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, and Latin America, with all episodes on release date through SelectaVision in Spain.
