Attack on Titan Season 3 has been one of the most successful anime of 2018, without a doubt. It was one of those anime which you expect a lot from, and it delivers. I have enjoyed this season thoroughly, and although the pacing was not exactly the best, it was still very much enjoyable. Today, Attack on Titan Season 3 Episode 12 will be aired, and we’ll see that the show is going on a hiatus.
That’s right; Episode 12 is AoT Season 3’s last episode. Although some do say that it’ll return shortly after three weeks, I don’t see that happening. Attack on Titan Season 3 is actually a split-cour anime. Meaning, the second part of the season will not be airing anytime soon. You probably remember Overlord doing two anime seasons earlier this year, and now Tokyo Ghoul re doing the same, right? Well, they were both split-cour anime as well. Attack on Titan Season 3 is following the same path, so I don’t think it’ll return within a matter of weeks.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Release Date
I’m not ruling out the possibility of an early return in November. Although the chances are extremely low, I do see that happen as well. But, in my opinion, Attack on Titan won’t be back this year at all. Attack on Titan Season 4, which will actually be Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 will air next year, in January. That’s just how I see this happening, and it is better that Wit Studio has gone for a split-cour anime, to be honest.
Wit usually struggles with managing the staff, which is extremely limited. If they were to continue producing Attack on Titan Season 3 without slowing down, you would see a significant drop in quality. This would ruin the experience of the fans, and wreck the reputation of the show as well. By waiting it out, they get three extra months to work on what’s coming, and believe me; you won’t be disappointed.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Release Date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but in my opinion, it should air in January 2019. Attack on Titan Season 3 Episode 12 will air later tonight, and I hope you enjoy the season finale.
