Written by Hajime Isayama, Attack On Titan was a manga series from 2009 that was incredibly popular. The post-apocalyptic, dark action fantasy series made its way to the West as a highly popular anime premiering in 2013. The anime is currently in its third season with season 4 coming soon.
The anime follows the story of a world where humans are endangered. They are an almost extinct race, given the giant Titans that roam the Earth. Therefore, the remaining humans live in areas with walls going up to the sky, as protection from the Titans. However, one attack by a rogue Titan destroys a young boy’s life. Orphaned, the boy vows revenge and joins the military. Through the years, he becomes highly trained in a special branch of the military that battles Titans. But the story quickly moves from one boy’s revenge to much more. Through the seasons, humans reevaluate everything that they thought they knew about Titans. So the story shifts from an insular story about one character, to one of global proportions. Season 4 of Attack On Titan is full conflict, humans versus humans, and both of them against the Titans.
Attack On Titan Season 4 Trailer Changes Animation Studios
The season 4 trailer of Attack On Titan, released on their official website and YouTube channel, is wildly immersive and doesn’t let up on the visuals.War breaks out, as many different Titans appear, with their own special traits and weapons. The trailer is entirely in Japanese, revealing very little story to non-Japanese speaking audiences. Despite that, the scenes and events on screen are riveting enough to make up for the language barrier. The most glaring part of the Attack On Titan season 4 trailer is the visual difference between the animation style.
Wit Studio were behind the animation on Attack On Titan seasons 1 to 3. The studio’s other anime credits include Vinland Saga and The Ancient Magus’ Bride. However, season 4 of Attack On Titan sees a change with MAPPA animation. They are the animation studio responsible for Dorohedoro and the upcoming God Of High School anime. While both are highly talented studios, the visual differences between Wit and MAPPA animation are obvious for anime fans. However, the Attack On Titan season 4 trailer still looks very much in style with the show’s tone. Ultimately, that’s all that should matter.
Attack On Titan season 4 releases sometime in Fall 2020.
