The preview trailer for season 4 part 2 episode 4 was shared following the ending theme song on this weekend’s broadcast.

The upcoming episode is called ‘Memories of the Future’ and appears that it will solely focus on Zeke and Eren in The Paths.

“Although rejected, the older brother doesn’t abandon the younger. In the place where they end up, the brothers learn the truth.” – Narration for episode 79 preview.

We are running out of episodes…

With the premiere of episode 78 “Two Brothers” on January 23rd, there are just nine episodes left in Attack on Titan season 4 part 2!

The episode count for the final ever broadcast was confirmed by the series’ official Japanese website, as well as the Funimation streaming page for the anime.

If there are no surprise delays or breaks in the scheduled broadcast, the final ever episode of Attack on Titan will premiere on Sunday, March 27th, 2022.

Interestingly, the episode title for the 80th episode has also been revealed to be ‘From You, 2000 Years Ago’. As many fans have pointed out, this runs parallel to the very first Attack on Titan episode, which was titled ‘To You, in 200 Years’.

The most in-demand anime in the world…

This week, Parrot Analytics held its 4th annual Global TV Demand Awards.

As part of the event, the team revealed that Attack on Titan was the most in-demand television show of 2021.

Attack on Titan is the first anime and non-English series to win the award, which has been previously held by The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.

“High caliber anime series out of Japan, like Attack on Titan, are more easily available now than ever before, streamlining the process of discovery, consumption, and conversation.” – Senior strategy analyst Julia Alexander, via Anime News Network.

Fans react to an incredible episode this week…

Arguably the best-ever episode of Attack on Titan, fans are still digesting what was an incredible conclusion to Marley’s invasion of Shiganshina.

From Zeke screaming in the face of Colt, to Falco’s introduction as a Titan and of course, *that* sniper shot from Gabi; we are struggling to remember an episode that featured more ‘cliff-hanger’ moments.

Of course, the devastating image of Eren’s head flying through the air is the topic of conversation for many anime fans on social media today.

However, the vast majority of posts on Twitter aren’t even breaking down the episode like usual. Instead, the global sentiment from the community is one of praise and thanks towards the production team at MAPPA and Isayama, the series original creator.
