    Default Attack on Titan: The Final Season Has Arrived


    Your mileage may vary based on where you live and what services you have, but today, Funimation and Crunchyroll are rolling out the first episode of the final season of Attack on Titan.

    In preparation for the release, a few weeks back Funimation released a movie recapping seasons 1 through 3 called Attack on Titan ~chronicle~ for those who would like a refresher before jumping in to the new season.

    This thread will be open season for spoiler discussions of all aired episodes. But if you would like to talk about the manga and potential future episode spoilers, please tag them.

    Anyway, while we wait, here's something cool. This song is inspired by Attack on Titan musically and lyrically. And I think it's really well done.

    Ugh we donít have crunchyroll here. But then even if we did, Iíd still probably wait for the season to finish before actually watching it. We tried to watch the episodes as they came out in season three, but didnít really like that and then the mid-season hiatus happened, so that was lame.

    That said Iím really looking forward to finally seeing this! Season three ended on a spectacular and I canít wait to see the conclusion. Iíve read about some of the manga spoilers and I know itís gonna be wild.

    Yeah, this was my experience too.

    I'm very excited. I am a manga reader so I have an idea where it's going, but I don't see how they can fit everything that's happened into one season. But who knows.

    Psychotic, would you find this series more enjoyable in manga form or anime form? Been considering starting it up at some point, but I canít decide if I want to watch it or read it.

    I hope people enjoy the final season more than I have enjoyed the manga arc it covers, which I feel has just been a mediocre mess that I read for the same reason I bothered still reading final arcs of things like Naruto and Bleach, purely closure.

    Real cool design on the new titan, like a skeletal lion. I know there was a studio change between seasons but it's a pretty seamless transition for me.

    Interesting choice after such a long break to have the first episode predominantly feature people we've never seen before.

    Depends on your preference. I think it's a lot easier to show action sequences in anime, and sometimes in the manga I don't quite understand and have to re-read (or re-look at, I guess!) some of the action panels to understand what's going on.

    But of course, obviously there is more nuance and depth to the manga's story.

    I can finally talk about the series without giving away major spoilers.

    We watch the series dubbed (husband likes dubbed cause yeah) so I've got to wait a few weeks before actually reading any of these posts cause I'll be on a delay. It's usually like 2-3 weeks after anymore but I haven't checked directly to see what the English dub schedule is.

    Reports on the bluray for the final season show there only being 16 episodes, which has lead a lot of people to believe that either:

    1. A loooooooooot of stuff is getting cut
    2. They're going to have a "mid season break", and come back for more

    I'm leaning towards 2. I think I recall the show having a long pause in the middle of season 3, and it's not uncommon for anime boxset releases to come out as a part 1 and 2.

    We're on about Chapter 91 of the manga, and it's just hit 135 (and seems to be very much in the endgame). Surely they'll take a midseason break and pump out a second half.
