Welcome to the first post on the inforsite. So let me right into the details; So in the last few days, there have been some rumors going on saying that there is a Season 2 of the popular anime Attack On Titan or Shingeki no Kyojin (that’s in Japanese).
For those of who do not know what is the Attack On Titan anime about? Here is a little review of the anime………
“Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations.
After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls. Based on Hajime Isayama’s award-winning manga, Shingeki no Kyojin follows Eren, along with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and his childhood friend Armin Arlert, as they join the brutal war against the titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.”
The 25 episode anime, produced by the company Funimation, was aired on the 7th of April 2013 and it ended airing on the 29th of September 2013.
Coming to the point; Should we expect a Season 2? And is it releasing on the 1st of January 2017!! ?
Yeah, according to many viewers, we might expect a Season 2 of the anime, but the anime creators which is Funimation studios disagree to host a Season 3 of the anime. But still we might see a series featuring another 25 episodes of the anime Attack On Titan. The official announcement of the anime was on this year, but a recent post proved that it will be releasing next year??!!!
Contrary to similar rumors that have been circulating for some time without any reliable source to support them, this information is trustworthy, as Mision Tokyo was the first website to confirm the release of Season 1 back in 2012, and the recent information was given to them by Selecta Visión, the official distributor of the anime in Spain (and the company that originally revealed the episode list of Junior High the last year), which in turn received it directly from Kodansha.
In their original blog post they have included part of the audio interview recorded during the 34 Salon del Comic in Barcelona where Selecta Visión marketing director Manu Guerrero reveals the delay, and the Facebook page of the company confirms that the interview indeed took place.
As stated by the source, Selecta Visión contacted Kodansha requesting the rights to simulcast Attack on Titan Season 2 in Spain during this Fall lineup, but they were told by the Japanese company that it will not be airing this year and that it has been rescheduled to some point of 2017, so the distributor estimates that it will premiere during the anime season that starts in January.
This claim is also supported by the fact that at this point of the year, no trailers, spots, character designs or announcements of any kind have been released promoting the season, as it is happening with the rest of animes that will be airing during the Fall lineup.
The reasons behind the delay are still unknown. As revealed by Wit Studio’s president George Wada on the Sakura-Con 2016, the season is currently under production, so is very likely that given the short staff list of the company and the other projects they have been recently working on (including the original series Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, which uses much of the staff of AoT), they were unable to meet the original schedule. As soon as we have more information we will let you know.
UPDATE on the officials talking:
This is the transcription of the audio interview included on Mision Tokyo’s blog post. It is just a 1:20 minutes long fragment of the full interview, which will be uploaded by Mision Tokyo to their ivoox account this week.
The part where Manu Guerrero talks about their intentions to simulcast the season is not included in the fragment, but in the text of the blog post, which reads as follows: “Although everything suggested that it would be one of the strongest releases for the end of the year, [and] in fact it was expected its release for October, it seems that it will finally be delayed and we will have to wait a little longer to see new episodes. This is what has been informed by Kodansha, the owner of the license, to Selecta Visión, publisher and distributor of the anime in Spain, in talks to broadcast the series in simulcast once it is released in Japan.”
And the fragment of the interview:
MT: And, about Attack on Titan, the second season also…
SV: Well, Kodansha… Kodansha has confirmed us that it will not be [released] this 2016, and that it will be for 2017.
SV: We hope it will be… of course, we, those who look forward for Attack on Titan, hope it will be [released on] January 2017, coinciding with the new anime season in Japan, we hope it will be so.
MT: Everybody thought it would be in October of this year…
SV: Many people thought it would be in October of this year, but as you know, the announcements of the new seasons are already being made, and previous to the announcements they would have released character designs, the studio would have made some kind of, let’s say, press release, they would have released spots, trailers… and if at this stage there is nothing, that is because it will not be for the October season.
