Attack on Titan season 4 – episode 17 – Eren has after all really jumped into the heart of this comeback, starting a plan to genocide everything but Paradis.
The end of one of the most influential anime of the past decade has finally begun. Or at least I hope so, because how much longer until the end of the manga, I’m not sure but wouldn’t bet entirely on this being the final season either.
Those were the familiar Paradis and Marley soldiers. Attack on Titan season 4 episode 17 is here with an epic arc and if you haven’t been able to keep up with what’s happening, get ready for some chaos. This season will push viewers to many places on the continent and they are not at all the places you would think they would be explored. Not a jot.
It’s been quite a while since the first half of season 4 last year, and I was a bit surprised to see Attack on Titan come right back to everything, even though that hasn’t been shown through episode 17. Eren after all has really jumped to the heart of this comeback, starting a plan to genocide everything but Paradis. For the sake of peace and ending the curse of Ymir, the initial attempt to cripple Marley’s leadership seems to have been unsuccessful. Or at least what Eren said in episode 17 of Attack on Titan season 4.
As we know Marley isn’t as disabled as the Yeageists think and this protest clearly proves it with the likes of Pieck, Reiner and Theo showing up to bring Gabi and Falco back. Need a major destruction in Op to help rekindle the atmosphere of a new season? You will not be disappointed here. MAPPA is also really bringing out their animation style to reshape the inherent dark colors of the original manga. I appreciate this in MAPPA more than the style of the previous WIT Studio.
It must be admitted that the Attack on Titan OPs made by WIT are really top notch, but it is undeniable that the level of virality and delight from the animations and soundtracks of the 2 OPs season 4. At least this will always be an event. Interesting comparison, especially when the action really begins in earnest.
Of course such actions are only in the service of the plot and the first clues of what is to come are already there. Levi for example is a big question mark, what will keep his current state from dying and Hange’s move certainly shows a glimmer of hope, but also has some profound omens that I guarantee will be very important to you later.
After that, the matter of Onyankapon and the betrayal you might never have expected will only become strange and confusing as events begin to unfold rapidly. If Armin becomes increasingly desperate to rationalize Eren’s realistic plans and Misaka’s inner dilemma becomes serious. She must contend with her own free will and the binding oath of the Ackermans.
But that was nothing compared to what was about to happen. There’s a lot of crazy things to experience once “The Rumbling” begins and I’m looking forward to seeing how my favorite anime ends up compared to the manga.
Also, considering what’s been introduced in the scenes of both the new OP and ED, I expect the results to be more glorious and concrete than what the manga has delivered.
