Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season


Written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, Attack on Titan is a dark fantasy and post-apocalyptic series set in a world that is overrun with Titans which brutally attack and hunt humans. In an effort to survive, humans retreat within tall walls until one day the so-called Colossal Titan finally breaches the tallest of these walls, setting off a chain of events that leads to humanity retreating further within the walls until they have no choice but to put their all into fighting back.

Leading the charge is the Survey Corps, a group of soldiers performing the most dangerous missions as they go out of the walls in order to study and battle against Titans while also attempting to expand humanity’s territory, and the story is centered around Survey Corps soldiers Eren, Mikasa, and Armin.


Attack on Titan began as a manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama that has been serialized in Kodansha's monthly Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since September 2009. The series has spawned several adaptations and spin-offs including manga (Attack on Titan: Junior High, Attack on Titan: Before the Fall, Attack on Titan: No Regrets, Spoof on Titan, and Attack on Titan: Lost Girls), light novels (Attack on Titan: Before the Fall, Attack on Titan: Harsh Mistress of the City, Attack on Titan: Lost Girls, and Garrison Girl: An Attack on Titan Novel), video games (including Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, Attack on Titan: Howl Toward Freedom, Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death, and Attack on Titan: TACTICS), live-action series, and more.

The fourth and final season of the anime, Attack on Titan: The Final Season is being produced by MAPPA with Jun Shishido as the chief director, Yuichiro Hayashi as the director, Hiroshi Seko as series composer, Tomohiro Kishi as character designer, and Hiroyuki Sawano and Kohta Yamamoto composing the music.

Although he has not learned the specifics of why, Eren possesses the ability to turn into an extremely powerful Titan that thrives in combat. As a result of this ability he has been shunned, kidnapped, and coveted, and he tries desperately to use it to help in his goal of eliminating Titans.

Eren’s childhood friend, Mikasa Ackerman is a quiet and brilliant young woman whose parents were murdered by slave traders when she was a young girl. She is saved by Eren who fights them to protect her and she ends up living with and growing up alongside him. As a result, she is very loving and protective towards Eren.

Her abilities exceed even Eren’s, and she graduates at the top of their cadet class. Other officers regard her as a prodigy for her skill in battle and it truly shows, and all of that talent is focused entirely on protecting Eren.

Armin Arlert (Japanese: Marina Inoue | English: Josh Grelle)
Another childhood friend of Eren’s, Armin has always been shy and weak, but he truly shines in intelligence and curiosity. He always wanted to see outside of the walls and was inspired by Eren’s confidence which led to him finding his own strengths.

Jean Kirstein (Japanese: Kisho Taniyama | English: Mike McFarland)
A difficult trouble-maker, Jean originally joined his cadet class with the goal of joining the Military Police to enjoy a safe and peaceful life within Wall Sheena.

Sasha Blouse (Japanese: Yu Kobayashi | English: Ashly Burch)
Best known for her love of potatoes, Sasha is a hunter with extraordinary instincts who is inspired by Eren’s determination which leads to her joining the Survey Corps, as well.
