'Attack on Titan' Season 2 Updates: Final Draft Of Script Almost Finished, Season To Start Soon? [VIDEO]
It's been two years since the first season of the runaway hit anime Attack on Titan ended, and fans are clamoring for the release of the anime's follow-up season. With the manga seemingly nearing its climax, rumors are emerging that the second season of the anime would enter production soon.
According to the latest speculations, the final drafts of the script for season 2's script are already in the process of being ironed out. Thus, it would only be a matter of time before the plans for Attack on Titan season 2 would be finalized.
With the second season most probably designed for a 25-episode run, the events of the manga's Clash of Titans and Uprising arcs would most probably be the new season's focus. While the producers of the anime have previously stated that they would prefer to wait until the manga is four arcs ahead before proceeding with the production of the second season, the sheer amount of plot points in the two arcs would most probably be enough to warrant an entire 25-episode run.
After all, the Clash of Titans arc plays host to several of Attack on Titan's biggest revelations, including the identity of the Colossal Titan and the Armored Titan. Apart from this, another notable titan shifter, the Dancing Titan, will also be introduced in the arc.
That is not all, however, as one part of the arc, the Assault on Castle Utgard, is the chapter where the manga's main enemy, the Beast Titan, would finally be unveiled. Also, the Coordinate, a power that is yet to be explained in the manga, would make its first appearance on the arc as well.
The Uprising arc is largely character-driven. In fact, many fans of the franchise consider it as one of the most underwhelming arcs in the entire plot of Attack on Titan so far. Despite its understated nature, however, the Uprising arc covers a very important part of the plot nonetheless, such as the secret behind titan shifters and the real reason behind the Walls' construction.
If the rumors are indeed true, the second season of Attack on Titan would most probably be just as successful as the first season, even if it only covers two arcs of the manga. Those two arcs, after all, have been the most important ones so far.
