Funimation confirmed today that season two of Attack on Titan will air April 1. Fans were treated to the long-awaited season two trailer late last year, but no other details surrounding the premiere were released.
Looking back at the trailer, we can expect to see a number of new Titans to be introduced this season, including a hairy one dubbed the “Beast Titan”.
Giant, humanoid, man-eating monsters known as Titans are still plaguing the city of Shinganshina; no one knows where they came from or why they’re attacking civilization. What remains of humanity is contained behind three large walls — Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sheena. Protagonists Eren Yeager, his sister Mikasa and his friend Armin are back in action, but no less panicked than the last time we’ve seen them. So far, the first wall has been breached, and it looks like the Titans have crossed the second one in season two.
From what we already know of the new season, perhaps the most chilling is: “Titans have been protecting us from other Titans this whole time.” Could it be possible that there are worse things beyond those borders? We’ll just have to wait until April 1.
