The news that an official livestream has been set up to count down the premiere of the Attack on Titan season finale has left fans on opposite sides of the fence.
PONY CANYON has taken it upon itself to host an “Attack on Titan Special Countdown Movie” on its YouTube page, complete with a continuous broadcast loop of footage and music from the anime. The countdown began on October 30 and will finish on November 4 (JST), the day the new season premieres.
The broadcast is successful in building anticipation for the finale because it encourages participation in the real-time conversation. A few puzzled commenters have asked if the countdown is actually an invitation to a watch party for the finale, but for the most part, the discussion is upbeat and encouraging.
The broadcast is likely to bring in continuously more people as the debut approaches.
The excitement surrounding Attack on Titan: The Final Chapters Special 2 is warranted, given the unprecedented popularity of the anime. Since its premiere in 2013, the program has not only received widespread critical praise and growing viewership but also received a reputation for its themes and social satire.
Taking place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has been wiped out by savage giants called Titans, the anime is a faithful adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s manga series. On October 28th, PONY CANYON released the last teaser for the new season, which previewed the exciting conclusion of the anime.
Dramatic Final Episode of the AoT Anime
In the Final Season, the Scout Regiment fights against the Rumbling in an effort to save the Eldian people from extinction. The ending of the manga was met with varied reactions and even cries for a follow-up chapter or revision, and it remains to be seen if this will be reflected in the anime.
The anime has so far lived up to fan expectations, and a new disclosure shows it may go even better by revealing the series finale will have a feature-length runtime of 85 minutes.
After the debut of the new season, MAPPA Animation Studio will throw a global after-party.
Tetsuro Araki, Yuichiro Hayashi, and Hiroyuki Sawano, the heads of production at the studio, as well as the composer for the event’s score, will be in charge of the livestream. Voice actors Yuki Kaji (Eren Jaeger), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackermann), and Marina Inoue (Armin Arlert) from Attack on Titans will also be available for interviews.
