On December 7, the anime Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season will premiere in Japan, the final season of the animated adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, Shingeki no Kyojin. The extreme secrecy on the part of the production team has caused a lot of rumors to be created about it, however, a recent slip by the official Netflix account in Japan would have confirmed one of them. A Twitter user shared a screenshot of a notification of a new publication by Netflix on the platform: “Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 1 will be added very soon,” he said. To prove it, he even added a video in another post.
This would confirm the rumor that this final season will be divided into two story arcs, with the second premiering separately from the first. However, the Twitter post by Netflix Japan was removed, so it would not have been officially confirmed yet. A second rumor indicates that this first part would have a total of 16 episodes, but it has not been confirmed either.
For its part, the final season of this adaptation has its premiere scheduled in Japan for next December 6 at 12:10 p.m. (strictly on December 7 at 12:10 a.m.).
Yuichiro Hayashi (Dorohedoro, Kakegurui) is directing the anime at MAPPA studios.
Hiroshi Seko (Ajin, Vinland Saga, Mob Psycho 100) will be in charge of writing and supervising the scripts.
Tomohiro Kishi (Dorohedoro, 91 Days) is in charge of character design.
Hiroyuki Sawano will be in charge of composing the soundtrack alongside Kohta Yamamoto (Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Saga).
Shingeki no Kyojin Synopsis
A century ago, humans faced extinction when an unbeatable and terrifying enemy appeared: the Titans, gigantic monsters that devoured much of humanity and forced the few survivors to confine themselves behind high walls. Behind those walls is Eren Jaeger, a boy who dreams of crossing them to see the outside world and who lives his day to day with his parents, his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and his friend Armin Arlert.
However, one fateful day, humanity remembers once again its fate when a gargantuan sixty meter titan appears before the first row of walls that protect humans from their most fearsome enemy. Thus, Eren, Mikasa and Armin lose their home and all hope as our protagonist takes an oath: his goal in life will be to destroy all the titans. In this way, a story of survival and war begins in which its characters must unravel the mystery behind the existence of these horrible beings.
