Thank (freaking) goodness! The long awaited announcement
has finally arrived. The news for the latest season of the popular anime was revealed at a celebratory event for Attack on Titan
Part I: Crimson Bow and Arrow (the anime compilation film). Many fans knew this announcement was inevitable, it was only a matter of when the news would be broken to the ever faithful fan base.
The jam-packed event (attended by Yuuki Kaji (Eren), Marina Inoue (Armin), and Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa) with director Tetsuro Araki) also revealed that the 2nd compilation film (Attack on Titan
Part II: Wings of Freedom) will be released June 27th, 2015. The two films are a compilation of the 2013 anime. Part I will contain episodes 1 to 13 whereas Part II will showcase the remainder of the series.
The films (to me) are a pretty smart way of keeping the fans immersed in the AOT
universe without actually giving them new viewing material. Its also a unique way of garnering to individuals who have never seen the anime.Fans are worried that the buzz surrounding Attack on Titan will die down before the 2nd season's premiere. I worry about this as well but we've almost lasted an entire year without the 2nd season. 2016 is a ways away but I'm more than willing to wait. I've caught up with the manga and I know for certain that it will all be worth the wait. Hopefully, the compilation films will tide fans over til the 2016 premiere date!
