‘Attack On Titan’ Season 2 Anime Series Delayed

The animation of rampaging giants ripping tiny humans limb from limb in Attack on Titan Season 2 has tragically been delayed until next year. According to Wikia the anime TV adaptation has been pushed back from October 2016 until January 2017. This information regarding the delay only emerged when a TV network in Spain contacted Japanese manga publisher Kodansha in an attempt to gain the rights to broadcast the show.

The reason for the delay is unknown, although Wikia speculates that Wit Studio is simply not able to make the original deadline. In an interview during the 34 Salón del Cómic in Barcelona earlier this month, Selecta Visión product manager Manu Guerrero said:

[Translated from Spanish] “Although everything suggested that it would be one of the strongest releases for the end of the year, [and] in fact it was expected its release for October, it seems that it will finally be delayed and we will have to wait a little longer to see new episodes.”

The 25 episodes of Season 1, created by Production I.G, were first broadcast on the Mainichi Broadcasting System in 2013. Attack on Titan is a reimagining of the manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. It is set in a world where humans live in cities surrounded by giant walls designed to keep out roaming man-eating giants.
