WILL BE AS GOOD AS ATTACK ON TITAN?!
MAPPA Studio is most well-known for their long-running, gruesome, and shocking anime adaptation of Attack on Titan, which has been running for almost a decade. The novel-turned-anime adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s novel is widely regarded as one of the most graphic and gory Japanese series of all time, and it has appeared on numerous top ten lists throughout history.
Season 4 of Attack on Titan premiered at the end of 2020, with the first half of the final season setting the stage for an epic conclusion in winter 2022. The remaining episodes of the popular anime are quickly approaching, and they will bring Eren Yeager’s story to a close — for better or worse.
Funimation and MAPPA remain tight-lipped on the finer details of the highly anticipated adaptation of Chu-Gong’s masterclass. However, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more so consider following us on social media!
