Attack on Titan fans finally rejoiced as , this ended their long wait for the adventure to continue. This was such important new for fans, as the again and again. It seemed like a vicious cycle that would never end. With the news of the season coming sooner than many thought, let’s have a look at what’s in stock for the characters. BE WARNED, MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD. READ ONLY IF YOU DON’T MIND THE SECRETS BEING REVEALED. FOR THOSE WHO DON’T WANT SPOILERS MIKASA AND LEVI WILL PROTECT YOU!
The story is set to show that the King is corrupted and the people want him overthrown! This will all have connections to the Titans in the walls that were revealed at the end of season one. This results in a rebellion, led by Captain Erwin Smith. This will lead to a massive conspiracy being unraveled, that results in the King not actually being the guy in charge. Instead it is ruled by the Reiss family. Now, some may be wondering what is so special about this family that is running the land? Well, they have the ability to transform into Titans. The heir to the Reiss family has also been in the show since pretty much the start.
Krista is known to viewers as the 10th best recruit of the 104th Training Corp, and has been present ever since Eren, Mikasa and Armin joined the Training Corp. She joined the Survey Corp along with many or Eren’s closest friends after completing training, but little did they all know she is actually the future ruler of the land. We will also see the one who has sworn to protect Krista ever since meeting her reveal a big secret.
Ymir is that odd character you get in a show, that character that seems a little odd and you know they are planning to do something with. Well your hunch has been correct! Ymir is in fact, another Titan-Shifter! She marks the 5th character with the ability to turn into a Titan form, after the Collossal, Armor, Female and Rogue Titans.
Ymir, unlike the others, turns into a smaller Titan at only 6-7 meters tall which makes her the smallest of the Titan-Shifters. However, this size is no disadvantage. Unlike other Titan-Shifters she has never been given an official name, but due to her smaller size she is extremely agile and quick resulting in fans dubbing her the Dancing Titan. This will not be only Titan-Shiter’s identity revealed. Season 2 will also reveal the identities of the Colossal and Armoured Titans.
Bertolt and Reiner will be revealed at the Colossal and Armored Titans. This shouldn’t come as to much of a shock, if you consider how often the two were pictured with Annie throughout the first season. It also explains why Reiner was not killed by Annie when she had him in her hand while in her Titan form. In fact he wrote into her hand vital information for her to use in that moment. The next interesting part we will be seeing is a Titan unlike any other before.
The Beast Titan is unlike all other Titans. This Titan displays clear signs of intelligence, as he has a keen interest in the 3D Maneuvering Gear, and can talk. He has a level of intelligence unmatch by any other Titan and can take down the Colossal Titan. It will be revealed that he is another Titan-Shifter, but will be a new character to the anime called Zeke. The season will kick everything up a notch and will cover the “Clash of Titans” arc which will literally smash all fans sideways. The season will also see to their Titan foes.
The manga is reported to be 60% finished according the editor, Hajime Isayama, meaning the series will have a total of 27 volumes. The first season covered the first four story arcs and the manga is currently only two story arcs ahead of that. Does this mean the second series will consist of only 13 episodes, half of the first series? It explains why their has been such a long wait between the two seasons, but it does also suggest the season 3 may not be out until 2020.
What are you looking forward to the most in the second season?
