The probability of an anime series getting better in each season is low, but that’s not the case with Yasuko Kobayashi’s Attack on Titan. From the very first season, the anime sparked a vast cult-like following. After three seasons of absolute glory and storytelling, the series finally ends with the upcoming finale. Attack on Titan is the epitome of the dark fantasy genre, and it depicted the fears of giant humanoid monsters into a harrowing and heartbreaking story.
Attack on Titan takes place in a mystical land, where humans live in a closed space world, rendered by the military to a closed 50-meter wall. This small world comes crashing down when one of the titans breaks into the world of humans.
In the first episode, the central characters, Armin, Eren, and Mikasa Ackerman, survive in the central city without worrying about any titan infiltration.
However, one titan breaks into the wall, and the character’s worst nightmare comes alive when he devours the citizens, including Eren and Mikasa’s parents, in front of their eyes.
In the middle of the dreadful chaos, the soldiers save the siblings, and the later part of the story takes place where Eren takes revenge on the titans.
All the earlier chapters were extraordinarily gruesome, and some scenes were too disturbing to watch, even for the adults. The series was rated PG, and it was not for the faint of hearts as it cracked the human emotions, relationships, and fear while putting the characters through hell in each episode.
The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan has kicked off with a special countdown. To celebrate the upcoming season, the AOT staff released some new artworks, unraveling some new characters that were never introduced in the anime adaptation before.
The recent Twitter post from the AOT staff shared a new artwork with a brand new set of characters, and it also shared the countdown for the finale.
As per the tweet, the illustrations will be released for the next seven days, commencing the series finale debut. For those who are not keeping up with the manga, the upcoming illustrations will debut new characters to the series that were part of the former manga volumes but never shown in the anime.
Earlier, the new animation studio MAPPA released the final trailer for the fourth season of the Attack on Titan franchise. In the trailer, fans witnessed brand new characters who look like young recruits to the army.
These new characters will contribute to the plot and fight for humanity. While these young characters will be central to the plot, Levi, Mikasa, Armin Arlet, and Eren Yeagar will be making a comeback as the show’s veteran heroes to end the conflict once and for all.
These artworks will feature some familiar faces of main characters, including Levi, the leading titans, and Eren. The production team will be releasing new artworks every day till the series debuts on NHK General TV in Japan.
