I cant wait for this. I'm so excited.

[–]heisty177 8 points9 points  (0 children)

After the first season with all the wait and rumors, I am glad AoT is back in production.

Not sure if you've read the manga but if you really enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 for the crazy human vs titan or titan vs titan fighting then season 3 (depending on whether it's 1 or 2 cour) might not live up to the hype for you.

The next bit is a decided change of pace for the series and focuses more on Chapter 51+ It's still good but I know quite a few people who picked up here after the anime ended (anticipating another long hiatus) and were disappointed with not just the shift in focus but also Chapter 93.

If it's 2 cour then it'll probably hit somewhere around chapter 90 which features titans really well and nicely wraps up the story set in motion in Episode 1. Right before... Chapter 90+

So, I’m halfway through S2 of Attack on Titan and it feels very different to S1. Does it meet the heights of the original at all?

[–]Oobidanoobi 52 points53 points  (6 children)

I much preferred S2. The supporting characters actually had, well, character.

did you watched the OVA

[–]Battlemaster123 7 points8 points  (0 children)

you have to go out of your way to find those so its understandable why people might not have seen them

[–]UsedToBePrettyHot 67 points68 points  (26 children)

I taught s2 was way better than season 1, and after s2 it get way better plus it will also become way different than season1 because you will get what's happening in grand picture( the reveal of colossal/armored titan is probably my fav moment in any media)

[–]Write-Or-Die 67 points68 points  (11 children)

We really doing this?! Here?! Now?!

[–]UsedToBePrettyHot 34 points35 points  (9 children)

Mikasa comes flying in 😂😁

[–]popcar2Castlevania 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There's definitely an episode in the middle where shit hits the fan. Keep watching.

[–]duck_waddle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The big difference is how much shorter season two is. They both are excellent, IMO.

[–]amorousCephalopod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Each season will probably feel unique.

[–]amorousCephalopod 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I call this arc Attack on Titan: Vice.

[–]tapped21 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's the best arc

[–]amorousCephalopod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm really liking the arc that'll likely be the fourth season. Although each one is pretty mind-blowing in its own right, it's amazing how much the conflict is able to continue "escalating" based on how much of the mystery behind the Titans and the Walled City is uncovered. But it's always been going on. :3

[–]chacer98 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Is s2 out then? Worth watching? I kind of drifted on this show since there was such a long hiatus after s1

[–]BadLuckRabbitsFoot 18 points19 points  (6 children)

S2 came out last year. It's great. Lots of character development, great animation, some phenomenal songs and awesome reveals about the world they're in. Was so good after season 2 ended I gave in and found the manga to read and binge-read that sucker for a couple days. Worth it.

[–]ADHthaGreat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kind of disappointed in the use of CGI for the colossal titan. If they used even a fraction of the budget that they use to animate hair, they could've done it way better.

[–]PooPoster9000 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I watched part of s2.. I dunno if the sub was off or what, but neither the lady not myself really got into it. I remember it jumping around kind of weird from side story to side story?

[–]Battlemaster123 7 points8 points  (0 children)

its basically trying to get you to figure out whats going on by yourself before the characters do

[–]p00bix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Keep watching. Seriously--if you liked Season 1, you will like the later half of Season 2 even more.

[–]BadLuckRabbitsFoot 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well, the characters split up and it tells what happens with those groups. It also delves into some of the characters' pasts so you are better able to understand who they are and their relationship with the others. Through this we get the character developments, the information that each group comes across, and then bringing it altogether to tell a story, etc.

[–]PooPoster9000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, we were both busy at the time so other shows captured our attention.

I'll probably go back and give it a few more episodes. Thanks!

[–]Olddirtychurro 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Can't wait to see that anti-3dmg animated!

[–]I_for_I 14 points15 points  (1 child)

It'll be interesting to see a human enemy instead.

[–]dickdrizzle 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Didn't see info that Hulu would have it, anyone know? Watched both seasons on Hulu so far.

[–]kianworld 8 points9 points  (0 children)

probably. adult swim might grab premiere rights to the dub if you're worried about that

[–]toutoune134[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Probably. It's too soon for simulcast announcements but it should be similar to season 2.

[–]Sunshine145 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]meho7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I wonder how many will still enjoy watching this when they start covering the arc where there's like 95% politics and 5% action of action. It was a pain reading through that.

[–]p00bix 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think the one week waits between episodes will be a lot less painful than the one month waits between manga chapters. But it's definitely a massive change of pace from the previous arcs. Will be interesting to see how the fanbase reacts.

[–]FloopyMuscles 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It’s going to end right when things start to get weird if it ends where I think it does.

[–]p00bix 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Most of us over at /r/ShingekiNoKyojin agree that the evidence points to a two-cour season, probably covering Chapters 51-90 (The most recent chapter was 101. Season 1 covered Chapters 1-35, and Season 2 covered Chapters 36-50)

Mild-moderate spoilers below explaining why we believe this.




[–]FloopyMuscles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh shit will for sure be getting weird then.

[–]KrankorTheGod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When is season 2 coming to netflix?

[–]masterfulsky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

season 3 im still waiting for season 2???

[–]shadow0wolf0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Attack on Titan was the first anime that my parents were interested in and would watch with me. I just told my dad about this news and he seemed really happy about it.

[–]protosplat 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Does anyone know why S01 was 25 episodes and S02 was only 12?

[–]IISuperSlothII 7 points8 points  (0 children)

A few reasons. WIT was already going to work on The Ancient Magus Bride a property they have a hand in funding so make more money back off of (to my knowledge they and Production IG are not are part of the funding for AoT so only get paid the commission to make the series) so they had a small gap between shows they could fit a 12 episode production into.

And with the way the arcs are structured, the first arc of this upcoming season is a slower burn and wouldn't work as well as the second half of a season, it works much better this way where it can slowly build up to the shit that goes down right after it.

By the time season 3 finishes as well they should have a good idea of how the manga will end, so they can better decide how to pace the season(s) after to work with the last few arcs.

How do the cables work?


[–]Bigmethod -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Season 1 was some silly fun, season 2 was a bit worse to me. I thought the production specifically was substantially worse. Those CG horses looked terrible.
