UPDATE 6/18: Funimation Films will present a Season 2 recap movie and the World Premiere of Attack on Titan Season 3 in U.S. theaters BEFORE the Japanese release. Get the details here.
In case you forgot, Attack on Titan Season 3 drops this year. That’s right! We don’t have to wait for another three years!
Now, we get the trailer, and even better, it comes with subtitles:
The trailer contains two very telling lines, the first being, “From now on, we’ll be fighting humans, too, and not just Titans.” Without going back and looking, how many times do we see Titans in that 67-second trailer? Do you have your guess? If you said two, that would be correct.
And in fact, I think it might be the same shot cut into two scenes. And the second notable line reinforces the first, “There’s been a freeze on all Scout Regiment activity outside the wall.”
For those of us who haven’t read the manga, and I’m guessing that’s most of us, we have no idea what’s coming.
But based on this trailer, it seems like there’s not going to be a ton of Titan fighting this year. Which, in itself, is kind of a big bummer. I’d say the worst part of Season 1 was the 10+ episodes of training with zero Titan fighting. Plus, I really want to see the whale, giraffe, and T-rex Titans. I’m not joking. I want this to happen.
But you know what I love most about this trailer? All the Levi action. God, has that been missed, and god does he look pissed.
