Attack on Titan has doubled the surprisingly short episode order for its fourth and final season. When the fourth and final season began, a listing on its official website revealed that the season would be sold on two Blu-ray volumes with sixteen episodes in total. This seemed like an odd number considering how the series’ final arc is not only one of the longest in series creator Hajime Isayama’s original manga to date, but it is also relatively slow. But it seems that the order of this episode remains strong.
The official website for Attack on Titan has been updated to further confirm the sixteen episodes (h / t Anime News Network), as it will be distributed in two Blu-ray releases, the first with episodes 60-67 and the second with the final 68-75. So for now, Attack on Titan ‘ is confirmed that the fourth and final season will only run for sixteen episodes.
This isn’t the shortest episode season (as the show’s season 2 had only 12 episodes), but it’s certainly a surprise considering how much ground the show’s final season has to cover. It will be interesting to see how the anime wraps it all up, as the staff behind the series seemed to indicate that even they don’t have a complete idea of how the manga will end.
Attack on Titan The manga’s run will reportedly come to an end in the next few months before summer, so the anime will apparently come to an end at the same time. With the first few episodes of the final season being used to establish the personalities and ideologies on the other side of the conflict, it will certainly be interesting to see how the series balances it out with what is to come.
Overall, fans seemed pleased with the slow burning of the first few episodes of the final season so far, as it has shown fans a new side of characters like Reiner Braun years after the events of season three, but really we are all waiting to see how. Eren and Survey Corps have changed in that time. With only 12 episodes remaining, it won’t be long before we see them!
