A new poster image has been revealed for Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2.
The new image was released on the official Twitter account for the series. The illustration shows Eren, with his outfit and longer hair from the second half of the series, as shattered images of other key characters and events, such as childhood friend Mikasa Ackerman and a glimpse of the Colossal Titan’s attack on Wall Maria, flow around him. The image was released to promote the upcoming finale of the popular anime series, which will begin airing its final run of episodes in Japan on Jan. 9.
Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 will adapt the remaining chapters of Hajime Isayama’s original manga, which concluded its decade-long serialization in Japan earlier this year. The manga’s finale was met with a mixed reaction from fans and professional critics alike; some liked the emotional conclusion, while others criticized the third act’s rushed pacing and what were perceived to be sharp changes to certain character’s personalities near the end. Some disappointed fans have even gone as far as to redraw and reanimate the end of the series with a different ending. Kodansha USA published the English physical release of Attack on Titan‘s final volume earlier this fall, which was released with several retailer-exclusive variant covers and other bonus material.
A livestream panel event for the series was recently held in Japan on Nov. 14. The panel featured the show’s cast and crew discussing their time with the series and its upcoming conclusion, and included appearances from Yuki Kaji (the voice of Eren Jaeger,) Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman), Marina Inoue (Armin Arlert, the Narrator,) Kisho Taniyama (Jean Kirstein), Yuu Kobayashi (Sasha Blouse) and Ayane Sakura (Gabi Braun). While the livestream has already aired, hardcore Attack on Titan fans can still purchase access to a on-demand recording of the event for $29.99 from production company Pony Canyon. Fans who would prefer to hear from the series’ English dub cast should also make plans to attend the upcoming Anime NYC convention, which will feature a panel on the series hosted by the series’ international distributor, Funimation.
