In an eagerly anticipated development, Attack on Titan, both the manga and anime adaptation, is inching closer to its climactic conclusion. With the manga already reaching its final chapter, fans are eagerly awaiting the resolution of the anime’s storyline. After the release of the first half of the series finale in the spring, all eyes are now on the highly anticipated back half of Attack on Titan’s final season. Promising an explosive finale, the show’s director, Yuichiro Hayashi, has recently opened up about the upcoming final episode and his thoughts on the impending conclusion.
As the final season of Attack on Titan is set to return later this year, Hayashi reflects on the imminent end of the beloved series. With only a few months remaining until the epic final episode airs, the director acknowledges that he still doesn’t quite feel like the journey is over, but he is gradually coming to terms with the idea. In a heartfelt letter addressed to the fans, Hayashi shared his sentiments, expressing his uncertainty about whether the end will truly come.
Discussing the recent key visual released for the final part of Attack on Titan, Hayashi sheds light on the creative choices behind it. The visually striking poster, characterized by its peaceful scenery with subtle hints of darkness, caught fans by surprise. It turns out that Hayashi had long desired to explore this contrasting aesthetic, and he decided to embrace it fully for the anime’s final poster. While it may come as a surprise to see a departure from the previous visuals filled with numerous characters, Hayashi explains that he deliberately chose a simpler approach. He believes that leaving room for imagination, where there is nothing explicitly revealed, holds a certain appeal. Although he alludes to interesting aspects that he refrains from explaining further to avoid spoilers, he encourages fans to expand their imagination and eagerly anticipate the final part of the series.
As the director and his team continue their dedicated work on Attack on Titan, there is still much to be unveiled. MAPPA, the studio responsible for the final season, has confirmed that the grand finale will arrive in the fall. The first half of the season has already hinted at the impending epic clash between Eren and the world, teasing a brutal and emotionally charged battle. Eren’s actions have left an indelible mark, leaving fans to wonder how his journey will reach its conclusion and what path Attack on Titan will ultimately take.
The anticipation surrounding Attack on Titan’s final episode is palpable, as fans eagerly await the culmination of years of intense storytelling and intricate world-building. The groundbreaking series has captivated audiences with its thought-provoking themes, jaw-dropping plot twists, and complex characters. As the countdown to the final episode continues, viewers brace themselves for an unforgettable conclusion that is sure to leave a lasting impact on the world of anime.
