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 12 Review- The Past vs The Future

Armen Mikasa Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12

This was perhaps the most essential episode of Attack on Titan we have had so far. As far as important developments go, this outing lacked them heavily. However, it made up for them with a fantastic trip to the past, one that explained a lot about what took place in the series before season 4 turned everything on its head. This was an episode that people will look back upon and thank for providing the context that was needed to connect to the main character in the show- Eren Yeager.

This outing involved the show going back to the time before it all went horribly wrong- when the survey corps visited the Marleyan Mainlands for the first time. It was sobering to have the entire group back as it used to be before Zeke betrayed his country. It was heartwarming to see Sasha again, and their antics on the mainland provided much-needed relief from the show’s current dark tone. The darkness is necessary and is still great in many ways, but the light is what lifts the spirit and prepares it for the horrors that lie ahead.

Rumbling Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12

This was also a cornerstone episode for Mikasa, a character who, in many ways, has been forgotten by the show. She, alongside Armin, was a huge part of Eren’s journey before Season 4, after which they were both unceremoniously dumped by the show. It was liberating to see that she tried to address her relationship with Eren and was concerned about Eren’s state of mind from the start. That’s what friends are for, and Mikasa is certainly among the best of them. We remember, even if the show doesn’t.

Eren Yeager, a character who is already being and will still be dissected for a long time after the show ends, didn’t change as quickly as Season 4 made him appear to. In Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 Episode 12 (or Shingeki no Kyojin Final Season Part 2 Episode 12), we see essentially his final moments as a human being and not a cog in the wheel to save his island from annihilation. We got a look at how things could have been if there was peace in the world and people did not hate eldians just for existing, and that accomplished in 5 minutes what Season 4 Part 1 couldn’t do in 16 episodes.

And here we are, at the end of this part of the final season, and there is so much story to tell. So many characters that are yet to receive their final moments, and we will have to wait a while to see Eren Yeager’s final moments in the sun. I have purposefully not brought up the production and background issues until now because I have already beaten that point to death in my previous reviews, and you can read those if you want to know that badly how much wrong MAPPA has gotten with this show. All we know is that we’ll be watching in 2023, whether we like it or not.

Verdict

Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 12 was a sobering look into the lengths the show has come and how close we are to the endgame. It’s a shame it isn’t anytime soon, but it is going to be worth it if it’s great or absolutely horrendous.

8 COMMENTS

  1. Man. there are only 9 ch. left. Not much story left. The animation of these last chapters is what made them add another part. you will understand once they are shown. You still have not fully seen the rumbling.

    • Its futile arguing with him. When they rushed p1 “Mappa doesn’t care” but when they slow it down “mappa is greedy”. He doesn’t even understand how difficult it is to animate next eps. That being said mappa should have thought it before naming it as final season

      • Are you seriously leaving this comment under a review where almost the entire thing was the review of the episode? So much to talk about and you picked the one line where I complained about the production because I guess you can’t complain about anything in this show at all? I didn’t call the studio names, I didn’t assume anything, I merely stated a fact and my reaction to it, and yet you still think I am somehow in the wrong for saying that? I guess that proves that if you are the same person who has been in the comments before, that you never had an intention of talking in good faith, at all. This will be my final reply to you because you don’t deserve any.

        • Calm down brother, I only said that cause you’re whining about it for past 3 or 4 ep. Infact I even said mappa should have thought about it before naming it as final season.
          The last rumbling part you saw takes lot of time to animate and the future ep will be full of that along with new titans for which they need to prepare cgi model. There’s also rumor that original author wants to add extra content and requested the studio.
          Now I dont know which guy you’re talking about but last when I had conversation with you I never said you were wrong, i just said you’re being harsh towards studio when its kodansha and production I.G fault. There’s indeed production issue here which I’m not denying. Last time when I replied all you said was I’m a fanboy, I’m this and that and mappa is greedy .
          Coming to complaining part even last time I clearly mentioned about show nonsense part like conny trying to save his mom and what not crap especially after rumbling. I clearly admitted the shows fault and yet all you replied was that I’m a fanboy

    • I don’t understand what the point of leaving this comment was? I talked about the episode 90% of the time and praised it, and yet you’re complaining about the one sentence I said about the production?

      • I’m not complaining. I’m saying some things that might enhance how you see the production of the anime.

  2. I’m not complaining. I’m saying some things that might enhance how you see the production of the anime.
