It’s April 2019, and fans of Attack on Titan are gearing up for what could be the best season of the show so far. Last year, the third season of the show finally began airing, but since it was a two cour anime, we took a break after the first 12 episodes.
We’re now close to the premiere of the second half of Attack on Titan Season 3, and in this post, we’ll be sharing the production updates, spoilers and everything else that we know about it. Before we begin, I want to let you all know that this post may contain spoilers from the previous, and possibly the upcoming season of Attack on Titan as well.
In this post, you’re likely to run into stuff that you wouldn’t want to know if you don’t like spoilers. If you hate being spoiled, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started.
We’re told that the series composer Hiroyuki Sawano has been sharing lots of updates on the upcoming season of the show, and in the last few weeks, he confirmed that he is now taking a final look over the soundtracks that will be in this season.
It’s also painfully obvious that Wit Studio has put all their force into making Attack on Titan Season 3 as good as they can. They have put lots of key animators on single episodes to make it look good in a short duration of time that they’re given to make it look good. That doesn’t bode too well for the animators, however.
The finale for the third season had 30+ Key animators on it, which just tells you how rushed the whole thing is. Regardless, the staff still produced stuff that was hugely admirable and I hope the next season is just as good, if not better.
Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 will begin airing from April 29, 2019. You can watch it on Funimation, and other streaming services like Crunchyroll.
Updated on April 12, 2019:
The episode count of Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 is set at 12 episodes for now. Since it is basically a second half to the first part of season 3, that’s pretty easy to guess. We now have an official confirmed on the episode count as well. Moving on to the first episode of the show which will premiere towards the end of April, we’re told that it will be titled “Where it all began.”
I think there may be a bunch of flashbacks in there, but overall, it should be an enjoyable episode. Hopefully, the production for the entire season is already wrapped up. They’ve been overworking the animators quite a lot, and I hope the time in between was put to good use.
