Eren’s journey reaches its climax as Crunchyroll releases a trailer full of tension and gore for the anime’s next and final episode.
Crunchyroll has released a trailer for the latest episode of Attack on Titan: The Final Season – Part 2.
SPOILERS FOR ATTACK ON TITAN FOLLOW:
The trailer shows humanity making its last stand against former hero Eren Jaeger and his destructive “Rumbling” plan, and teases the possibility of other major characters dying before the end of the TV series. Episode 87 of the series, titled “The Dawn of Humanity,” will simulcast on Crunchyroll and Funimation on April 3. The English dub of the episode will air on May 1.
Crunchyroll describes the episode with the following synopsis:
The War for Paradis centers on Shiganshina just as the Jaegerists have taken over. After taking a huge hit from a surprise attack led by Eren, Marley moves quickly to return the favor. With Zeke’s true plan revealed and an army forced under a new regime, this battle could be fought on two fronts. Does Eren intend to carry out his half-brother’s wishes or does he have his own plan?
While the episode will mark the end of The Final Season – Part 2, many fans don’t believe this will be the true end of the series, as the anime still has several manga chapters to adapt. While it’s possible that the final version of the anime series will compress this entire story into a single episode, many have speculated that the series’ conclusion will be followed by the announcement of a new special or animated movie that will feature the true ending of the story.
Attack on Titan: The Final Season – Part 2 was one of the biggest anime releases of 2022 so far. The first episode of the half-season in January garnered so much attention that it briefly took anime streaming service Crunchyroll offline as demand for the new season overwhelmed the platform’s servers.
The attack of the Titans was created by Hajime Isayama and debuted in 2009. The original manga was a huge commercial success, reaching a worldwide circulation of over 100 million copies. The series has also been popular with critics, earning praise for its tense storytelling and memorable cast of characters. Isayama released the series’ final chapter in 2021, and despite a mixed reaction to the finale, the series continues to be one of the biggest entertainment franchises to emerge from Japan in the past 20 years.
