Attack on Titan Season 4 The Final Season came to an end this week, and the countdown for the next season has already begun. Although it is quite certain that the chances of the return of Attack On Titan Season 5 are not very high, there is still a thin line that can give us hope for the renewal. And adding to this excitement is the most celebrated announcement of this year. So, is there any hope for the franchise to come back with another season? Here is everything you need to know about the launch.
When a franchise becomes as big as Attack On Titan, the feedback on its content tends to be polarizing. The same was the case with the manga and the anime’s ending. While some people believe that the conclusion was well-traced, others feel that there was a lack of depth to the concluding arcs of the characters. Even so, there is a possibility that a new season can come back with an alternative ending. Well, this is indeed a bit of a stretch, but there is nothing certain in the world of pop culture where all three spider-mans can come back.
Attack On Titan Season 5: Renewed & Canceled?
Cancelation is not quite the case with the fifth season of Attack On Titan. Right after the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 87 was aired, the fans got the most exciting announcement of the year. The official socials of the anime posted a trailer video announcing the third Part of Attack On Titan. That is right, Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 will be happening. Along with this teaser, the release window for this outing was also confirmed.
Will There Be A Part 3 Or A Movie?
As for now, there is much confusion about the final part of Attack on Titan. Considering the fact that there are still nine chapters remaining to be adapted, not everything was concluded in the second part. Now, the official announcement in the English version reads the outing to be “Part 3.” However, the Japanese version of it is known as “kanketsu-hen” (conclusion). Thus, fans do not know whether this outing will be another season or a movie project.
Will It Come Back?
Sadly, there is no chance of the return of AoT after Season 5. In the span of four seasons, the entirety of the manga was covered in the series. And now, the story of Eren’s revenge over the Titans has finally come to an end. Since there is no more story to tell and the other spin-offs are not as popular or in-demand as the original, the makers would not bring it back for its namesake.
There is no doubt about the fact that Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime franchises of all time. The series stretches its fan-following to the extent that non-anime fans also love the series. So, there is a wide possibility that if there is any scope for the return, fans will be more than happy to welcome the outing.
Attack On Titan Season 5: Movie Project Happening?
At the time of writing, the only point that fans are pivoted upon is on the Attack On Titan Movie project. The chances of Part 3 being a movie are quite high. This is backed by the fact that there is not enough source material to fit into an entire season. Moreover, all of the seasons of Attack On Titan have been 12-episodes long. Thus, nine chapters cannot give content to an entire season unless the makers plan to culminate an original storyline.
During the shift of the animation studio from Studio Wit to Studio MAPPA, it became quite clear that the makers were very particular about the story of the anime. After the third season, the writers wanted to take a bold step with the character of Eren. Since Wit did not agree with those ideas, a change of studio was taken into account. Their ideas were rejected by multiple animation companies until MAPPA decided to fill the big shoes. Thus, there is a high chance that this ending is something that makers wanted to do on their own.
What Will Be The Conclusion?
In the manga, after the events of Rumbling, Mikasa and Armin decide to confront Eren. They wanted to know if he wished to eradicate the entire humanity. To this, he replies that he did not have any other option than to activate Rumbling. Because of the fact that Ymir had been obeying the orders of King Fritz for more than two thousand years, the power of the Titans persisted to increase. But Mikasa did have to abide by her duty of safeguarding human life. Thus, she was the one who ultimately took Eren’s life.
Now, this part of the story is yet to make it to the anime. Since there was a lot of debate about Eren not winning in the end, fans believe that the anime creators will twist this story to a certain extent. Moreover, judging by the fact that the entire studio was shifted to backing the idea of the importance of the story, MAPPA certainly has bigger plans for the conclusion of Attack on Titan Season 5.
Attack On Titan Season 5: Release Date
NHK-General was quick enough to announce the solid release date for Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3. The new part of “the conclusion” will come out in the year 2023. In addition, the fifth season is on hold for a while. Thus, in the case is more news, we will be sure to update this section with the same.
