Three years since the first season release, fans are not giving up just yet for an “Attack on Titan” season 2. Rumors have spread since then on the release date of season 2 but this time around, it might actually come true.
A leaked video of “Attack on Titan” Season 2 went viral on YouTube with almost 2 million views already, as per Hall of Fame Magazine. As seen in the video, Hange breaks the sweet character fans know in season 1 and turns to be a strong and serious type of woman which begins the story line of the second season.
Hall of Fame Magazine also mentioned that season 2’s story line will focus on the mystery of the titan’s face protruding from the wall. Hange demands answers from Pastor Nick which he vaguely gives. This information is not something new nor surprising for the “Attack on Titans” fans as this is what they were already expecting from season 1.
According to Ecumenical News, previous reports have said that season 2 will follow the “Clash of Titans” and “Uprising” arc. But that information was soon revoked and fans start claiming that the series will pick up its own pace detached from manga. Lastly, from the reports, it mentioned that it will be released by late 2016.
Latest news from the same website, however, reiterates and confirms that season 2 is definitely on the works but nothing about its plot.
Other rumors include the Reiss family being the focal point of season 2. This then give us hints that new characters will be introduced, namely: Uri Reiss, Rod Reiss, Freda Reiss, the Beast Titan, and Captain Kenny Ackerman.
Some fans have even thought of the possibility that season 2 will feature Captain Levi’s death while defending the Shiganshina Trio. Included was also the revelation of the identities of the Colossal Titan and the Armored Titan.
No official word has come out yet, but Ecumenical News also reports that Manu Guerrero, marketing director of Selecta Vision, which is the official distributor of the anime, said that fans will just have to wait (again) until January or February of 2017.
