Re: Attack On Titan

Amazon has the AOT: Part 2 + Box for $49.99. This box was very difficult to get if you didn't pre-order.

Re: Attack On Titan

News on the Second season.

Quote:
Season 2 release date was finally announced during the premiere of the first "Attack on Titan: Crimson Bow and Arrow" compilation movie. According to Mantanweb, actors Yūki Kaji (Eren), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa), Marina Inoue (Armin), and director Tetsuro Araki announced that the "Attack on Titan" Season 2 release date is in 2016. Despite Hallel's claim that "Attack on Titan" Season 2 development started early, it looks like the anime will not return in 2015 after all.

Re: Attack On Titan

I watched this anime up to ep. 21 yesterday, after getting over how stupid the titans look I think the story is really good. It was the titans looks that was keeping me from watching it, untill my cousin told me she cried a lot when she watched it.

Re: Attack On Titan

I think the Titan's looks make the visuals really stand out, and make it even more creepy as they're cookie-monstering people.

Yeah three were side-stories labeled as episode 3.25, 3.5, and 3.75.

While the last two were titled No Regrets Part 1 & 2 and was a prequel about the backstory of Erwin and Levi.

There was also 9 chibi specials.

Now there is a Junior High spin-off series coming out.

Re: Attack On Titan

Loved the anime and when it ended I started following the mangas. They're fun but damn, the writer/artist is dragging this thing out forever! I think that's the nature of most serialized mangas but it seems more noticeable in this series. One book I got from Barnes & Noble was almost all about them running from Titans. I was actually thinking that we would find out the mystery surrounding the basement but I don't care anymore. I will watch the anime when it comes back for Season 2 even though I already know what happens.

I think BigDave mentioned somewhere that it can run beyond season 3. But the Attack on Titans manga creator did mentioned specifically how many issues it will run. I cannot remember how many...

The latest issue of manga - it seems it has step up towards the basement.

Season Two should cover the Clash Of The Titans arc and the Uprising Arc. This current story arc will probably be in Season Three.

Back in 2013, the author said it would end with Volume 20. That would have been this coming Summer. The latest chapter is in the middle of Volume 19.

Then in 2014, he said he wanted to flesh out the characters more and extended the ending to Volume 25. That's probably why the boring political coup arc dragged on for a year and a half.

Anyways, it should end around Spring 2018. That'll give them enough content for a full Season Three.

So far there's just the one season (25 episodes). Season Two is expected sometime this year. It'll probably be during the Summer 2016 season.

Re: Attack On Titan

Hopefully it'll give them time to animate the whole thing instead of filling episodes with still frames.

Re: Attack On Titan

I don't consider it to have ever been delayed. Can't delay something that doesn't have enough material to adapt in the first place. Season 1 ended with adapting Chapter 35.

Today there is only 82 chapters out (78 if you go by the Chapters released in Volumes so far). That leaves 47 chapters currently available for an adaption. Considering they used 35 in Season 1, that's barely enough for a season 2 and still have a few chapters left depending on how they pace out the season.

As such, there simply wasn't enough for a season 2 before now.

If we consider where Season 2 will likely end so that it doesn't fall into the middle of an arc... It's gonna have to end with Chapter 70, which means another 35 chapter adaption for the season.

We look forward to premiering it on FunimationNow.”
