The fourth and final season of the Attack on Titan anime television series, titled Attack on Titan: The Final Season, is produced by MAPPA, chief directed by Jun Shishido, and directed by Yūichirō Hayashi, replacing Tetsurō Araki and Masashi Koizuka respectively, scriptwriter Hiroshi Seko took over the series composition from Yasuko Kobayashi, and Tomohiro Kishi replaced Kyōji Asano as character designer due to the series switching production studios. On September 22, 2020, Crunchyroll and Funimation announced that the final season would be streaming "later this year". The season premiered on NHK General TV on December 7, 2020 at 12:10 AM JST. Currently, the season has an episode count of 16 episodes.

Hiroyuki Sawano is joined by Kohta Yamamoto to compose the music. The opening theme song is "My War" (僕の戦争, "Boku no Sensō") performed by Shinsei Kamattechan (神聖かまってちゃん), and the ending theme song is "Shock" (衝撃, "Shōgeki") performed by Yuko Ando (安藤裕子, Andō Yūko).

My thoughts on episode 1!

Spoiler

I'm a bit lost lmao, before watching the episode I watched some summary videos for the first 3 seasons as it has been a while since I've seen them.

I wasn't expecting the season to start in the middle of a battlefield (even if it showed it in teasers yeah lmao), I was naively expecting to see our main protagonists a bit.

It's crazy how changing point of view makes me feel like I'm watching a totally different anime. I've been spoiled on a few points so there's some things I expected, but not getting into it like that lmao.

I'm quite intrigued, I think I'll keep watching the episodes as they come out.

 

And as I said above, it quite feels like watching a different anime. Even the opening doesn't sound like SNK to me. Truly changing point of view, seeing the world through the eyes of the previous enemies changes everything. It's really interesting, even if I'm not really into war type of animes, the storyline keeps me hooked into it.

if you've been spoiled then you will know what's coming ahead. When I first started this arc in the manga I was confused and many people were too. Made me drop the manga once even but I went back after more chapters were out and it started coming all together. Also the reason it feels different might be change in studio (change in animation) and character designs and such. But what I think of it is that consider this is taking place 3-4 years after s3, it is not an awkward time (for example haikyuu design changes) because they've grown older and their outward appearances have changed also. (also the previous studio was the ones that had their own character designs whereas this is very faithful to the manga so this is what they should really look like)

 

 

----------------------

 

I really liked the first episode! I'm aware that there were some cuts from the manga but it's staying very true. Reiner just looks so fraking badass but the last part broke my hearts ugh </3. I can't wait to see more of gilliard! and all the new warrior contenders are so cute! including gaby! they all sound like what i thought they would sound like. I'm quite glad that despite not having the main cast, people still tuned in to watch and it's proving quite popular. But at the same time with the confusing anime only watchers might be turned off by it. I really wish anime watchers could watch like 8 episodes in one ago and be quite shocked at the turn of events. I find that waiting a week in between episodes just makes me forget things that happened in the previous episode. lol I really liked the ed. all aot soundtracks are somewhat dark but this made me feel i'm longing for something. perhaps longing for peace and freedom. like trying to find myself after losing everything. anyway great ed.

Disappointed with the OP and ED.. boring visuals and eh songs.

THE EPISODE THOUGH!? HOLY SMEGHWAEGREW. except for one thing with falco and other minor bits it was SOOO FAITHFUL TO THE MANGA.

gabi's voice is everything I wanted. I cried of happiness seeing falco finally animated. hes one of my top 5 aot characters. 

Reiner looked amazing!! zeke looked a bit better too! awesomeee!

Well, I was very confused when this episode opened up on a battlefield with completely new characters, lol. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the episode a lot! The new chars seem interesting; I already love Gabi. The pacing was great, voice-acting on point, and the art was great too. Even the CGI was good. Of course, I'm still not feeling the updated art style and designs of our main characters, but it seems like we won't be seeing them for a bit.

I've been spoiled only a few generic elements so good thing I'll still be surprised!

Honestly the change of animation hasn't been off putting, it's different but still looks like SNK. What truly feels different to me is how the episode was in the middle of a war that looks more like a modern war with trenches, modern weapons, etc. While the first seasons were more fantasy-horror, now we're truly in the war genre of anime. Like the previous seasons were already military/war, but as it was seen from the perspective of people that didn't know they were in a war against other humans, it felt different haha

ah yes aot in a nutshell, as they say

s1: humans vst titans 

s2-3: titans vs titans 

s4: humans vs humans

when i read it the new arc it felt like it was a whole new world to me too. i remember when i first watched s1 and i thought it was so overrated and overhyped. it was only until s3-4 that i felt that the point of focus took a turn and started liking it.

I'm so lost :derp: i don't even understand if we're in the past, present or future

Gotta watch some season 3 recaps i see

Its the present, but it's 4 years after the end of the season 3!

It's a focus on Marley, which is where Annie, Reiner and Bertholt came from!
