The unholy alliance of Marleyans and Eldians have set out to stop Eren, and they plan to do it one way or another. Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 10 sees them going up against their former allies. Let’s see what went wrong with the plans in this review!
Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 10 Overview
What more is there left to be said about Attack On Titan? Even if you only consider yourself a casual anime fan, this show is probably one that you know about and watch avidly. It is an action and supernatural show based on the works of Hajime Isayama. It is known as Shingeki no Kyojin in original Japanese, and thus this half of the season is also called Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 Part 2. You can also call it Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 or Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season Part 2 if you’d like.
This season is being animated by Studio MAPPA, a powerhouse studio behind several immensely popular anime properties, including Jujutsu Kaisen and the future Chainsaw Man. This season is directed by Yuiichirou Hayashi, with Jun Shishido serving as the chief director of the show. The duo was also in charge of Part 1 of the final season, alongside several other acclaimed anime such as Kakegurui and Hajime no Ippo. You can find our review of the previous episode right here.

Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2 Episode 10 Review- Friends Or Enemies?
What happened to all the hype? The supposedly final season of Attack on Titan started with as much fanfare as anything in the entire world. The first few episodes were discussed online frantically and with much enthusiasm, but for the past couple of episodes, it’s like all that excitement and hype has disappeared all of a sudden. Few people are talking about it, and even fewer are realising that the show essentially only has three episodes left (two after this one). While the show is still extremely popular, this isn’t what was expected from its absolute final episodes.
There can be multiple explanations for that. For one, I could just be flat wrong, and this might not be the case at all. While extremely possible, I find this to be highly improbable as anyone as terminally online can look for themselves and see the same results. This could be an expected drop off, as all shows drop off somewhat in the middle before picking up again. But again, the pick-up point was somewhere around the last episode, and if it were happening this way, it would have happened sooner. Maybe, just maybe, could it be that it’s the show’s fault?
Allow me to illustrate my point by taking Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 Episode 10 (or Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season Part 2 Episode 10) as an example. This episode featured Reiner, Mikasa, Armin, and the rest of the “traitors” attempt to retake the harbour from the yeagerists. There is a ton of action and some drama, and the episode is just as high quality as most of this show’s catalogue. It contained everything that people watch this show for, and it would have been perfect if it came at any point apart from two episodes before the show supposedly ends.
The takeover didn’t even end with this episode. That’s how far behind the show is right now. The tremendous problem plaguing this show is that if reports are to be believed, just two episodes remain. This isn’t even worthy of being speculated upon, as there is no way all of the show’s complicated and expansive storylines can conclude satisfyingly in these two episodes. There just isn’t any time left. Granted, this entire issue depends on the show only lasting two more episodes, but unless somebody confirms otherwise, this is all we know.
There is no way Mikasa’s past, Armin’s future, and the entirety of Marley vs Eldia bloodbath is resolved within two episodes. In the same manner, there is no way Levi’s revenge on Zeke, the restoration of the royal family, the fate of the titans and the other characters we’ve come to know, like Jean and Connie, gets unveiled in only two episodes. The show is then left with two options- either rushing the ending and not making it satisfying or extending the show’s runtime by adding a movie. I don’t know which one of these is worse, especially as a non-japanese person who will probably have to wait for a year just to get hands on the movie.
Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 10 was a decent episode with some fun action scenes, but the show’s end is looming, which does not look like a good sign for it. How are they still at the harbour with this little time left?
