Although the Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3 release date is still a long way off, it appears that the franchise is determined to keep viewers interested in the anime’s final season.

The announcement stated that Attack on Titan: The Final Season – Part 2 Blu-rays and DVDs will be available on July 20, 2022. The sets will feature, in addition to the episode discs, a 68-page booklet featuring staff interviews, artwork from Part 2’s creation, and a copy of the artwork above. Individuals who purchase copies in Japan will also have first access to seats for the special event’s concert.

A new two-day fan event has been planned, related to the launch of the Attack On Titan: Final Season Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD!

Attack on Titan: Season 4 Part 3 story summary

Attack on Titan: The Final Season – Part 3 is scheduled to debut in 2023. Part 2 reached Chapter 130 of Hajime Isayama’s post-apocalyptic manga, which means there are still nine chapters to adapt. Part 3’s production specifics are currently unknown; however, it appears likely that Yuichiro Hayashi, the director of Parts 1 and 2, will return to complete the story.

“After I finished Part 1, I went on to direct Part 2, and I felt I had become much more familiar with Attack on Titan, so I think I’ve been able to direct more comfortably,”

Yuichiro Hayashi

Many fans did not feel that Attack on Titan Season 4: Part 2 would be enough to complete the series. As soon as fans learned about the episode count and titles, theories about this “ending” began circulating.

Many people assumed Attack on Titan would finish with a film. This speculation is owing to the sequences in the last story arc of Hajime Isayama’s manga. Many claimed it was the embodiment of “cinematic” and worthy of the big screen.

However, a feature-length film of 120 to 150 minutes would not have enough time to get into all the profound and complicated sequences that accompany the finale. Now, the anime can provide the required level of visual spectacle and the necessary character and story depth. The only drawback is another year of waiting for Attack on Titan Season 4: Part 3.
