Attack on Titan Season 2 is finally happening after pretty long wait. Original plans would have seen season 2 out this year but limited availability of materials on the manga series were seen as reasons behind the delay.
All that seems to have been covered with the producers gathering enough for the second season of Attack on Titan. The second season is set for release in 2017.
The official announcement for Attack on Titan: Season 2 was made alongside a promotional image at the Tokyo International Forum during a live reading event, Crunchyroll revealed.
Core Staff Returning
Attack on Titan: Season 2 will see the return of its core staff responsible for the first season. That includes Masashi Koizuka, who will be back to direct and Tetsuro Araki, who has been elevated to chief director.
For a complete rundown on the staff supporting Koizuka and Araki, you can check it out at the show’s official website. With the long hiatus, some fans may end up trying to refresh themselves with what happened in season 1.
The first 25 episodes aired way back in 2013 (April to September). Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the series via home video in 2014 per the Anime News Network. The first season actually inspired a couple of anime films in 2014 and 2015, including a two-part live action film.
But judging from the rants which followed after Attack on Titan season one, season 2 needs to come up with something huge and appealing to its rowdy fans.
Aside from the spin-offs and live action film, the creative team behind Attack on Titan”season one also came up with some original series. These were Kabaneri and Iron Fortress, which were results of the anime’s growing fan base, per IGN.
With so much hype, it is not surprising why “Attack on Titan” has a lot at stake for its second season. That would include new twists and plots, as fans await what the show producers have to offer.
