For the unfamiliar or for those of you catching up on your anima shows I’ll give you guys a brief overview on the anime Attack on Titan. The plot is set in a world where the remains of humanity live in cities surrounded by enormous concentric walls that protect them from Titans. What is a Titan, a gigantic humanoid creature usually masculine in body who instinctively attack and eat humans. They don’t seem to have any reproductive organs so once they have had their fill of humans it then vomits them into big slimy balls. Ewe! Their skin is tough and difficult to penetrate, they recover very quickly but the good news is they do have a weak spot at the nape of their neck. The walls that protect what remains of human society are created in a circular manner with the poor living within the outer wall, Wall Maria, and the middle wall, Wall Rose where the richer people live with in the inner wall, Wall Sheena.
With man eating giant Titans wondering around eating humans what is the best way to survive? Do you stay safe behind the wall only to be trapped like caged animal? Or do go outside the safety of the walls and try to reclaim what the Titans have taken? What would you do? The story centers on Eren Jaegar and his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and their childhood friend Armin Arlelt. After the destruction of their home and the death of their mother, at the hands of a colossal Titan, Eren, Mikasa, and Amin vow revenge and plan to reclaim the world from the Titans.
The amine series is running behind the story and pretty similar in comparison to its manga source material, which is to be expected as shows often change storylines to fit the format and the animation process is slow and other factors may cause delays in production. The anime series ran for 25 episodes covering 34 chapters from the manga story. Attack on Titan manga is currently on chapter 86, which given clarity on the history of each Titan. As far as an update on the amine series season 2, the creators have released an official premiere date to be spring 2017. It was originally said it was going to be released in November 2016, but you know things happen. The season 1 amine series focused on the situation of the people inside the protected wall and the numerous titans attacking the city, like the Colossal Titan and the Female Titan. The upcoming season will feature additional titans with the story of the first titan – Ymir Fritz. The season will also lead to revelations of the titans origins and Eren’s past will be unraveled with features of Grisha Yeager’s basement.
Attack on Titan amine season 2 will back April 2017 but will it fully follow the manga series? Maybe, some of it, I guess we will just have wait and see.
