2016 probably seemed like a long wait for “Attack on Titan” anime fans when the season two initial release date was announced.
But now that a few months of 2015 have gone by, perhaps it is closer than ever.
Or at least, this year would be a great time for a surprise announcement.
Recently at this weekend’s 2015 Sakuracon, the animation studio behind “Attack on Titan” held a panel to answer questions about their current anime series.
Specifically when asked about the highly anticipated second season’s release date, Wit Studio executive Yusuke Ueda said he had no specifics but some news was coming soon.
“I’m very sorry to say we can’t say right now specifically at this point when it will be available, but I think at this point, if you are patient and wait and look forward to it, we will have some good news for you soon,” explained Ueda (via ANN ) The problem with this statement is of course how soon is soon, and what will be the exact news? It would definitely be exciting if “Attack on Titan” was slated for early 2016, which would mean the release date announcement would come in the next few months.
If not, perhaps soon could be toward the end of the fall 2015 anime season, which could lead to a Winter 2016 premiere.
Hopefully the “good news” in question isn’t yet another reiteration of what has already been seen (namely season one and the compilations films) or a spinoff.
Several fans have noted that the franchise is a bit out of hand with the addition of the “Attack on Titan” live action TV series that is now in development.
Whatever the new “good news” is and when it happens, at least there are plenty of new episodes of Wit Studio’s other anime series to pour over including “The Rolling Girls,” and currently airing series “Seraph of the End.”
