After almost an entire year of rumors, the “Attack on Titan” season two release date has finally been confirmed.
Perhaps Hajime Isayama has finally finished enough material to confirm a timeline for the next season.
That, or Wit Studios finally got a sense of the consequences of losing fans if they continued to release old revamped material.
According to reports, yesterday at the midnight premiere of the first animated feature length film “Attack On Titan Part One: Crimson Bow And Arrow,” staff and voice actors revealed that “Attack on Titan” season two is now on track to be released in 2016.
Finally, official news.
And they should have plenty of time to make it as close as to the manga as possible with no fillers (hopefully),” commented one fan on Anime News Network’s breaking story.
Anime News Network confirms the release date through several sources from Japan, so fans can finally be assured that the 2016 date is not a rumor.
As to whether there will indeed be no fillers (which was allegedly one of the reasons why Season One was so beloved), that will perhaps depend on the final volumes of the source material by Hajime Isayama, who reportedly will finish the manga by 2017.
In addition to the announcement about “Attack on Titan” season two, staff that worked on the compilation film “Attack on Titan: Part One: Crimson Bow and Arrow” also announced the release date of the second film.
“Attack on Titan Part II: Wings of Freedom” is set to open on June 27, 2015.
After the successful premiere of the compilation films, some fans in North America might be wondering if they’ll get a chance to see the films.
Given the popularity of “Attack on Titan” it’s definitely something for U.S.
distribution companies to consider.
Meanwhile, there’s no reason to believe that Crunchyroll and Hulu won’t simulcast “Attack on Titan” season two when it finally premieres in 2016.
