We hope the holidays brought you all many good times and thoughtful gifts this year, and that this new Attack on Titan promo just adds to your merriment! A few weeks ago the official announcement of the Attack on Titan season 2 release date was set for April 2017, and we are happy to follow up with an action-packed trailer.
Spoilers from Season one ahead, and all speculation made without reference to the manga.
This trailer definitely spices up what we thought we knew about the new season. It shows all the intense, badass battling we’re all familiar with, but also adds the plot point that perhaps not all the titans are the same. We reported that the new season would bring in more information about the titans and that is likely to come with the discovery of new titans. The Beast Titan looks particularly interesting as it is new, and obviously different looking and much larger than the standard titans. Similar to the Colossal Titan, who is also going to come back this season.
We also get glimpses of titans fighting each other, which is EXTREMELY interesting and is backed up by the trailer’s revelation that some of the titans are actually protecting the people. Of course, there is Eren, and the trailer shows us his iconic move of turning into a titan, fueled by the same rage towards them as in season one. His background and his father’s work was spoken about in earlier reports, but not really mentioned or shown in the trailer. However, we are still expecting that story line to be dealt with.
Finally, there is a line about treachery, which really amps up the excitement for the new season. Last season’s revelation of Annie Leonhart’s betrayal as the female titan was truly a shocking surprise, and we can only hope to assume that this brief line expands on her story and who’s on her side.
Without further ado, here is the new promo trailer for Attack on Titan season 2.
Be sure to check it out in April 2017!
