The Final Season Part 2?

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 (Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 2 / 進撃の巨人 The Final Season Part 2) is actually the 6th season of the Attack on Titan anime. That means the upcoming Final Part of the Final Season is going to be the 7th season.

There have been a lot of jokes made about how the Final Season of the series keeps getting extended. I’ve made many of those jokes myself. But, in this review, I’d like to explain a bit why I believe they’ve titled these seasons the way they have.

First of all, all three parts of this “Final Season” take place after the last time skip of the series. Because of that, you could group this third of the series (in terms of the manga) into one collective, or season.

The other big reason for naming these series this way is that it creates hype. The Final Season (Part 1) was the first season animated by Mappa instead of Wit. So, how do you create hype for a season fans are expecting to be worse than what came before it?

Obviously, you title it “The Final Season.” That gets people talking about it. It also makes fans who may have dropped off over the years catch back up. Basically, it’s a tactic to trick people into thinking that the climax is here.

The thing is, anyone who read the manga knew this wasn’t going to be the final season. It had around 50/139 chapters to adapt. But, the manga readers weren’t the ones the anime needed to attract. They needed the anime-only viewers to care.

Oh, and yes, the Final Part of the Final Season is actually going to finish the series. There are only 9 chapters left to cover.

Misunderstanding The Series

I’m a big Attack on Titan Fan. I think it generally has a great story and characters. Eren is one of my favorite characters in anime/manga. And I can assure you, I didn’t think that was going to be the case when I started watching the series.

Generally, I don’t think protagonists are the best characters in their respective series. But, I really liked how Isayama shifted Eren’s role throughout Attack on Titan. By the time we get to The Final Season, he’s become the antagonist.

It’s going to be over a year from now, but I plan to write a full article on how a lot of people have misunderstood the main themes of this story as well as Eren’s character. I want to wait to do that until the anime is completely done.

But, I feel like it’s important to bring up now because, with this latest season, I’ve seen a lot of people claiming that the series is fascist propaganda. These people seem to not understand that nationalism and genocide are never depicted as good.

Yes, they are depicted in the series. But it’s always the antagonists who are promoting these ideologies. Just because Eren Yeager is now the one doing so doesn’t mean that it’s a good thing. Eren is no longer the protagonist. He’s the enemy our heroes are trying to stop.

If you’re looking for the protagonist of The Final Season, it’s Gabi Braun. Throughout this second part of the season, we see Gabi transitioning into the hero Eren was supposed to be. And while I’ve seen anime watchers start to appreciate Gabi more, I think having time to reflect on this season will only serve to reinforce the idea that she too is a great character.

More Enjoyable Than the Manga

So far, I’ve been saying good things about this season. And, honestly, I think there are a lot more good things to say about it than bad. Overall, I think the content of The Final Season is some of the best the series has to offer.

The problem with Part 1 of The Final Season is that Mappa didn’t execute it all that well at times. With this part, I think they fixed all those problems. This part of the season looked way better than the previous part (except for all the off-model shots of Eren).

Now, something I didn’t expect to be writing here is that I actually enjoyed the content of this part a lot more in the anime than in the manga. In the manga, I was losing interest by this time.

Attack on Titan is just a series that really benefits from being animated. And, of course, the soundtrack is iconic. Even scenes that were pretty boring in the manga were exciting in the anime adaptation of this part.

With all of that said, though, the beginning of the end is upon us. I genuinely believe Attack on Titan has one of the worst endings of any series I’ve watched/read. The cracks have begun to appear in this part, and they’re only going to get worse.

It works if you don’t think about it, but the whole Paths/Attack Titan future memories thing is just a time travel paradox. And then there was the introduction of the (space?) worm that’s somehow responsible for the Titans.

I’m really looking forward to reviewing the Final Part of the series, but not because I think it’s going to be good. I can’t wait to tear it apart.

Conclusion

Overall, Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 is an 8/10 from me. Going into the season, I never expected that I would be rating it this highly. But, I think Mappa did an exceptional job at turning this portion of the series into one of the best.

Oh, and I almost forgot, both the OP and ED for this part were great. The ED might be my favorite of the series. I’m not sure where I’d rank the OP.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 87

Mikasa’s Ice Cream

I don’t know if you know this, but there was a Twitter account that counted the days until the manga panel of Mikasa with ice cream was animated. Well, the day has finally come. I guess the owner of that account (it’s not me) can finally rest.

Now, you may be wondering why this is important enough for me to dedicate an entire section of the review to it. Well, it’s not. But, I figured I could use that to lead into the fact that the first two-thirds of this week’s episode was actually rearranged in the anime.

And, no, I don’t mean that the order of events within this episode was rearranged. I mean most of this episode’s content came earlier in the manga than in the anime.

If you’ve been paying attention to these reviews, you may remember that back in the Episode 80 review, I mentioned that half of a chapter was skipped over. That was the first half of Chapter 123, which has now been covered in Episode 87.

Back then, I said that this change was probably made to make the anime flow better. And, while I still think it was a bit awkward to include here, this was a better spot for the content. Also, the remainder of Episode 87 finishes Chapter 130, picking up from where Episode 86 left off.

I’ll also point out that this means there are 9 chapters left to cover in the Final Season Part 3, which was recently announced. Or, there might be 11 chapters. You see, after Chapter 139 (the final chapter), 2 more chapters were released that I haven’t read. Maybe the anime will cover them. I don’t know.

The Day it all Began

Within Episode 87, we got some questions about when Eren turned into the person he is today. Mikasa even wonders if this is the person he’s always been. And, unfortunately, there’s not a simple answer to that question.

All of Attack on Titan is a time travel paradox. There is no beginning. I’ve explained this before, but Eren sets basically the entire series in motion via the power of the Founding Titan. And he can’t have or use the power of the Founding Titan without a significant portion of the series taking place. It’s a loop.

However, I get the feeling that Isayama didn’t intend for the whole series to be a paradox. So, is there a time in Eren’s life that we can point to and say, “that’s when it all began” (if we pretend it isn’t a paradox)? The answer is yes.

When Eren touched Historia’s hand and saw (a portion of) the future, his fate was sealed. We don’t know what he saw. But, we know that whatever he saw is what set him down this path of destruction. I believe he even said as much to Zeke at one point.

We should also keep in mind that all of Eren’s actions are based on his limited information about the world and the future. Eren doesn’t know much about the world. We also know the Attack Titan’s “future memories” ability isn’t perfect.

Just as Eren only allowed Grisha to see portions of his own memory, Eren likely can only see portions of the future. With the information at his disposal, he’s determined that the Rumbling is the only way to save Paradis. Whether that’s the right choice or not will have to wait until the Final Season Part 3.

The “Attack Titan”

Let’s talk about Titans. Specifically, the Nine Titans. Specifically, the three of the Nine Titans that are currently held by a certain Eren Yeager. As a refresher, Eren holds the Attack, Founding, and Warhammer Titans. That makes him the only character with more than one Titan.

However, despite the fact that Eren has three Titans within him, these are still all distinct Titans. I’m bringing this up because the Marleyan soldiers at the end of the episode referred to Eren’s Titan form as the Attack Titan. This is not the Attack Titan.

The Titan form Eren’s currently taking is the Founding Titan. The Attack Titan is the Titan form he took for the majority of the series. We know that because it’s already been established. The Attack Titan is the Titan that was once owned by Eren’s namesake and then by Grisha before finally being passed to Eren Yeager.

Now, I was going to say that Eren has to swap between his Titan forms to be able to use their various abilities. But, without actually checking, I believe we’ve already seen that’s not the case. I’m pretty sure he used the Warhammer Titan’s ability while in the Attack Titan’s form back when he fought Reiner in Marley.

So, I guess you could technically say that it’s the Attack Titan coming for the shores of Marley. We don’t have any proof that Eren isn’t currently using the Attack Titan’s abilities. And, in fact, I guess he is using one of its abilities since the Attack Titan is the titan of rebellion.

Still, calling Eren’s Founding Titan form the Attack Titan is a bit odd. I know this is coming from a Marleyan Soldier. But surely they’re more aware of the Founding Titan than the Attack Titan, right?

Conclusion

What do you think of Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 87? Are you glad to see Mikasa finally get her ice cream in the anime? Do you think Eren was always the person he is today? And, what are your thoughts on Eren’s Founding Titan form? Personally, I hate it.

Attack on Titan: No Regrets

Attack on Titan: No Regrets

Thugs in the Underground City

Since there’s a one-week break before the final episode of Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2, I figured I’d review the No Regrets (Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku / 進撃の巨人 悔いなき選択) OVA to fill the gap. This OVA consists of two episodes and tells the story of how Levi Ackerman came to join the Scouts.

Now, you might be thinking that we already got episodes of Levi’s backstory in the main series. And you’d be correct in thinking that. But the backstory we got for Levi in the main series focused more on his childhood. This OVA takes place much later.

At this point, Levi is the leader of a gang that’s located in the underground city beneath the capital.

It’s unclear exactly what the structure of Levi’s gang is. We see a decent amount of members. But, it appears that most of these members are more like contractors who are brought on to complete specific jobs. The only full-time member at the start seems to be Farlan Church.

Isabel Magnolia also joins the gang as a permanent member at the start of the first episode. From then on, Levi, Farlan, and Isabel are the core members of the gang. I think only one other member was named.

Also, before I move on to the next section of the review, I’d like to point out that the underground city could actually be a nice place to live. Obviously, it’s not. But at least if you’re down there you’re safe from the titans. With the exception of the one hole up to the surface we see, there’s no way for titans to enter.

Freedom on the Surface

Levi, Farlan, and Isabel make their way to the surface after they’re recruited into the Scouts by Erwin. However, they’re actually on a mission to infiltrate the scouts, steal a document from Erwin, and then assassinate him. This mission was given to them by a member of the government.

I have some problems with this whole situation. There are two things that the government official offers in exchange for their help. First, he said he’d pay for their comrade’s treatment in a hospital in the capital. And second, he promised them citizenship on the surface.

The first problem is that once these three join the scouts and are taken to the surface, they never mention their injured comrade again. It’s as if they completely forgot about him. And, sure, maybe they talk about him off-screen. But as far as the viewer is concerned, he no longer exists.

Why is that a problem? Well, it’s because of the second problem which is that Levi, Farlan, and Isabel already have citizenship on the surface. Simply by joining the Scouts, they now live on the surface. So if they live on the surface and they’re no longer concerned about their injured friend, why are they still carrying out their mission?

It seems like they’re so blinded by the mission that they were given that they don’t realize they already have everything they wanted. And do they really think the government official would grant them the citizenship they were promised?

To me, this seems like the perfect setup for Levi, Farlan, and Isabel to become scapegoats. If Erwin was actually killed and there was any suspicion surrounding his death, you know that official would throw those three under the bus to save himself. They’re thugs from the underground. They’re the perfect scapegoats.

RIP Farlan and Isabel

Once they made it to the surface as members of the Scouts, I knew Farlan and Isabel were going to be killed by a titan. Since we never saw them in the main series, it was clear that they either died or went back to the underground city. And I think we can all agree the latter was unlikely to happen.

In the end, they were killed by an abnormal titan, along with many other members of their platoon. Their deaths were also some of the most explicit in the entire series. That may be because this is an OVA, so it can get away with more than the TV anime can.

Their deaths also came very late in the OVA. There were only a few minutes left of the second episode when it happened. And I think that hurt the narrative a bit because it meant the ending was a bit too open-ended.

I enjoy open endings a lot of the time. But the issue here is that the ending of this OVA has to connect to what we know happens in the main series. That connection was left up in the air. It ends with Erwin telling Levi not to regret his decisions and to stay on as a member of the Scouts.

We know Levi did end up staying a member of the Scouts. However, we got nothing in terms of explaining why he made this decision. Levi says that Erwin is looking at something Levi himself can’t see (the future, the bigger picture). But that shouldn’t mean Levi suddenly wants to follow Erwin now that his friends are dead.

It just seems like there’s a huge disconnect between what we see happen at the end of the OVA and what we know happens later in the series.

Conclusion

Have you watched the Attack on Titan: No Regrets OVA? If so, what did you think of it? Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed it enough to give it a 7/10. It had great action and I liked seeing Erwin again.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 86

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 86

Geographic and Cultural Influences

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 86 actually gave us something I complained about not having just a week ago. In my Episode 85 review, I mentioned how I’d like to have a world map so we could visualize how the rumbling would progress.

We didn’t get an entire world map in Episode 86. But we did get a map of the continent that includes Paradis Island off to the northeast. When you see the placement of Paradis compared to the mainland, it’s easy to understand that Paradis’ relation to the rest of the world is based on Japan.

Japan is an island off the northeastern coast of mainland Asia and was culturally isolated for a very long time. Of course, the actual civilization on Paradis Island is based on Germany, though.

Continental map

And, before anyone comments it, no, Paradis is not based on Germany they’re supposed to represent the Nazis. I’ve seen a lot of people thinking that Eren is supposed to be like Hitler, and that’s simply not the case.

Yes, there are a lot of parallels to World War II in the series. But, Marley is the country based on the Nazis. They’re the ones who keep Eldians in guarded camps and want to eradicate them. The Paradis Eldians are the oppressed and Eren is the embodiment of their negative sentiment.

Eren and his followers are those who want to seek revenge for their oppression. However, as you’ll notice if you’ve been paying attention, they’re now the antagonists of the series. The heroes don’t want to commit a vengeful genocide.

You could also view this story as having parallels to sentiments in Japan after the United States used nuclear weapons against them.

Falco’s Jaw Titan

There were a lot of exciting things that happened in Episode 86. We had Mikasa, Jean, and Connie all fighting against the Yeagerists (Twitter only cared about Mikasa). We also had Shadis and Magath giving their lives to save the world (more on that in a bit).

But, I’d say the “biggest” part of the episode was the reveal of Falco’s Jaw Titan. More people seemed to care about Mikasa doing literally anything. However, I did still see a lot of people commenting on how they liked the Jaw Titan’s design.

So, of course, I have to come in and mention how I actually dislike Falco’s Titan design. But, before you call me a hater, I do think his Jaw Titan looks cool. It’s just that I don’t think it’s a good design for his specific Titan.

Falco Grice's Jaw Titan from the anime series Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 86
Falco Grice’s Jaw Titan

Perhaps you noticed that Falco’s Titan has hands and feet that look like a bird’s talons. And perhaps you also noticed that the jaw of his Jaw Titan looks a bit like a bird’s beak. His name is also Falco, which is almost the word falcon, a type of bird of prey.

Basically, Falco’s Titan design would be great if he was the Beast Titan. It has animal characteristics, albeit different ones from Zeke’s Beast Titan. But, having animal characteristics is kind of the Beast Titan’s thing. Up until now, that’s the only Titan we’ve seen like that, and its name implies that to be unique about it.

Falco’s Titan design is definitely cool and unique. I mean, most of the other Titans are pretty boring. Though, I’d still have to say that the Warhammer Titan (did you forget that one?) is still my favorite — the manga version of it, specifically.

Shadis and Magath

I’ve always liked Shadis and Magath. Well, okay, I didn’t really care about Shadis at the start of the series when he was just the commanding officer of the cadets. But, once he became a recurring character, I really enjoyed him.

Magath is a character I enjoyed right from his introduction. I liked his initial interactions with Gabi during the siege that the Final Season began with. Back then, even though Gabi was only a Warrior candidate, Magath was wary of sending her on a dangerous mission into no man’s land.

It’s hard to say if Magath felt bad about using child soldiers back then and if that’s why he was hesitant. I think it was more so that he didn’t want to lose a promising Warrior candidate, which I believe is what he told Gabi. But, we now know that Magath does regret using child soldiers and the power of the Titans in general.

Shadis and Magath are effectively the same character. They’re the ones who trained our heroes and villains — Eren and Zeke being the villains, and everyone else being the heroes. And yet, they never met until it was time for the two of them to give their lives.

While I do like that they opted to go out in a (literal) blaze of glory, it has to be said that Shadis probably shouldn’t have gone along with it. I understand Magath’s reasoning. He’s atoning for his sins and he has knowledge of the ship so he can destroy it.

But, there was no reason for Shadis to die other than, as he puts it, he was looking for a good place to die. Even with the Rumbling happening, Shadis still could have made a difference. He still could have helped civilians in need.

Conclusion

What do you think of Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 86? Do you like Falco’s Jaw Titan design? And are you sad to see Shadis and Magath meet their ends? Let me know in the comments.

Also, I believe there’s a break next week before the final episode of this part of the season (not the end of the series).

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 85

Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 85

Battle for the Flying Boat

In my review of Episode 84, I mentioned that the “flying boat” was just an airplane. Well, it turns out I was wrong. It’s literally a flying boat. As Onyankopon explains, it’s a boat that has detachable wings (and propellers, which he didn’t explain).

Anyway, the flying boat is one of those things you wouldn’t really think is all that important. They have ships, so why do they need a flying boat? Well, a flying boat is just a lot more practical for what the heroes of the world are trying to achieve.

As Hange guesstimated, the Wall Titans have already made landfall on Marley. They’ve made it beyond the ocean to the next continent. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ve ever actually seen a world map in Attack on Titan. But, let’s just assume Marley is the next closest landmass.

The problem with ships is that they’re relatively slow. If you’re going to cross an ocean, a plane — or flying boat — is going to be far faster than a ship. And considering that the Rumbling is currently happening, time is of the essence.

But, even if there was a ship that could travel across the ocean faster than the flying boat, our heroes would run into another problem. How do they deal with the moving wall of Wall Titans? A flying boat can just soar right over them.

Yes, 3D-maneuvering gear exists and could be used. But, while scaling the Wall Titans in this way definitely seems possible, then what? Are they going to slice the napes of all of them? They can’t hop down onto the other side; they’ll just be crushed like the rest of the world.

Saved by the Titans

The Azumabito clan is important for three reasons. First, they’re the allies of the heroes of the world. Second, the flying boat technology is theirs. And third, they’re the distant relatives of Mikasa. That last reason isn’t actually important, but it explains why Mikasa specifically wants to save them.

It’s the second reason that really matters at the moment. Because the wings of the flying boat are off (or folded away; I forget which), the engineers of the Azumabito are needed to prepare it to fly. If all the engineers are killed by Floch, the flying boat may never get off the water.

Unfortunately, these engineers, as well as Kiyomi Azumabito, are being held hostage by Floch and the Yeagerists. And, the flying boat has also been rigged to explode. So, our heroes can’t just charge in and kill everyone in sight. If they do that, they’ll either lose the engineers or the flying boat itself.

The solution Armin comes up with (it was probably Armin) is to act like he and Connie are on the side of the Yeagerists. They attempt to trick Floch into believing that the enemy Titans are fleeing and that they need to use the flying boat to catch up to them.

Honestly, I don’t think this was a great plan. It just seems way too suspicious. But, Floch took too long to realize this. By the time he did, Armin and Connie had made their way to the flying boat, and Mikasa and the others had launched a surprise attack to rescue the hostages.

But, even with the element of surprise on their side, our heroes would have failed if not for the Armored and Female Titans. Armin can’t turn into the Colossal titan because the destruction would be too much. So it’s up to Reiner and Annie to protect the Azumabito engineers by taking out all the Yeagerists.

Stained with Blood

At the end of the dock where the flying boat was being kept, Armin and Connie come face to face with two of their old comrades. I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember Daz and Samuel at all. It’s entirely possible that this was the first time they’ve been named — or even shown.

Regardless of whether we know them, Armin and Connie do; that’s what matters. They don’t want to have to kill their friends. But, after Floch alerts the other Yeagerists to the presence of intruders and traitors, Armin and Connie aren’t left with much choice.

Of course, Daz and Samuel didn’t have to die. They could have surrendered to Armin and Connie at any point. However, considering that they truly believed what Eren’s doing is right, that wasn’t going to happen.

In the end, it was Connie who killed both Daz and Samuel. I guess you could argue that Samuel didn’t need to be killed since he was already disarmed and restrained at that point. But, in Connie’s defense, there’s no guarantee that Samual wouldn’t have tried to fight back again.

Also, something I found interesting is that Connie thinks back to something Bertholdt once said about someone always needing to stain their hands with blood. Bertholdt believed that what he, Reiner, and Annie were doing was the right thing. And so, he accepted that he would have to stain his hands with blood in the name of world peace.

Connie is doing the exact same thing here. He believes that what he and his comrades are doing is the only way to save the world. And in this moment, we see him accept that he’ll have to stain his hands with blood in order to achieve that.

Conclusion

What do you think about Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 Episode 85? Can you think of another way to stop the rumbling that doesn’t require the flying boat? Are the Azumabito really that important? And should Connie have spared Samuel? Let me know in the comments.
