The historic saga of one of the most popular anime shows in the world as the last chapter of the iconic Attack on Titan approaches. The final chapter and the second part of season 4 will air on January 9th, 2022 and fans can stream the first episode of part 2 on Crunchyroll. We are only days from the premiere so the fans who didn’t have a chance to read the manga are wondering what to expect from the series finale.
The series left off with a major cliffhanger and a start of an epic battle, so part two is picking up where the first part of the final season left off, which is Marley invading the Paradis Island. Their intention is to stop Eren Jaeger from unleashing all the might and power contained within the Founding Titan. Eren is seen as the main villain since his major transformation, however, his motivation appears obscure and perhaps of dual nature.
There are many loose ends in the story, waiting to be tied, so we can expect a dynamic finale. One of the most interesting points might be the peculiar relationship between Eren Jaeger and Reiner Braun. The leitmotif of this relationship is Eren’s understanding of Reiner’s ways and motivations. While Eren’s goal is to wake the Founding Titan and save Elda, Reiner wants to stop Eren and destroy him. They are almost the same although they are fighting for different causes, while Eren aspired to become like Reiner at one point.
What is certain for the finale is that Zeke’s and Eren’s plan to euthanize the power of Titans by sterilizing Eldians will be in the center of the story plot as the series is coming to an end. In the meantime, as we are waiting for the season finale to start with the first episode being aired on January 9th, we can watch 8 special Attack on Titan episodes released between the two final parts and available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
