So Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 just ended a few days ago and now we know for sure that final season part 3 is coming in 2023. So yeah, Mappa named it the “Final Season” a bit prematurely here but it’s fine. It is actually good to see Mappa take a break though ngl. They have a lot of stuff to work on and I don’t want people to be overworked; so it’s good that they are taking a break here.
Well all that aside, I am here to give you my thoughts on Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2. It was quite the season and it covered some of my favorite parts from the manga so buckle up. The review will be completely spoiler-free so let’s just jump right into it.
If you haven’t been spoiled already,… Oh boy, how do I even start without spoiling the series for newcomers? Well, stuff picks up from where previously left off with Eren and friends returning and stuff happening. To this point, I have no complaints with the manga and Mappa did a very good job at faithfully adapting the manga. I like the fact that they went for 1 chapter per episode in this season, it allowed them to expand a few scenes which in turn added more flavor to the plot.
The plot twists and plenty and Attack on Titan never lets go of the gas paddle after this point. Only a few stories are willing to go as far as Attack on Titan did and that is what makes this series different from others to me. The series does an awesome job of providing different perspectives on events so while what Eren is doing is the logically correct answer, the series really forces you to feel bad for others and even the “bad guys”.
As I told you, Attack on Titan does a great job of giving us varying perspectives on matters. One effect this has is that it really brings out a character’s personality and thought process. In AoT, everyone has their views on stuff just like in real life and everyone acts accordingly. There is a lot of character development for different characters in this season. I know what Eren is doing is very divisive in the community and the series but, you have to agree, it is logically the most accurate long-term solution he could have come up with.
Animations and Soundtracks
Mappa did a fantastic job in animating this season too. I know a lot of people hate Mappa but man, they sure are pulling no stops with AoT. I like WIT and Mappa for different reasons and I think Mappa is more fitting for the Final Season. This is because Mappa’s art style is much more serious looking; for instance, Eren’s Titan looks much more demonic in Mappa’s style. This is very fitting for what he is about to do. SO yeah, double thumbs up Mappa. Great job.
SOundtracks are equally awesome too. You hear Ashes on the Fire most of the time but that is fine because that one song has so much variety and can be used in different situations really well. And sure enough, Mappa uses that song really well. Ashes on the Fire is on my daily playlist and I never get tired of that song. And then I heard “wmid” by Sawano in the last episode and that literally made me cry. I love it. And of course, the opening theme and the ending themes are my favorite ones so far.
Here are my final scores for Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2:
- Plot – 10/10
- Characters – 10/10
- Animations – 9/10
- Soundtracks – 10/10
- Enjoyment – 10/10
- RUMBLING, RUMBLING – 11/10
- Overall – 10/10
Well, that is all for now. Of course, all of these are my thoughts so let me know what you think in the comments. It was another awesome season from Mappa; they did mess up a bit at times but it’s a minor complaint. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
