Attack on Titan Season 4 is finally almost upon us, as the story of Eren Yeager and the Survey Corps comes to an end. Here is everything we know so far about the anime’s epic conclusion.

Attack on Titan turned the anime world on its head with its explosive debut in 2013. The series’ brutally unflinching story and incredible animation had viewers hooked to the edges of their seats.

Over seven years later, the show is finally coming to an end with what is shaping up to be an incredible finale. Here is everything you need to know about the anime’s last episodes with Season 4.

Attack on Titan Season 4 revealed

On May 29, fans got their first look at Season 4 with the release of a mind-blowing trailer. Manga readers will be familiar with many of the shots featured in the clip, although the anime is only now finally catching up with its final episodes.

The video quickly went viral on social media, as fans were blown away by its intense visuals and how drastically different each of the main cast looks. Eren Yeager in particular looks absolutely shredded, as he embarks on his last mission.

What is Season 4 about?

Interestingly, the manga for the series has not yet concluded, which means the story is still not definite. However, given that anime is usually broken up into two parts, it should, in theory, allow the show to line up whenever the story is finished by author Hajime Isayama. According to Screen Rant, it could end this year.

So far, the animation has adapted up to the Return to Shiganshina arc, so Season 4 will cover Marley and War for Pardis – which are the final two story lines in the entire series. The first half will likely follow the Nation of Marley, who resides on the other side of the sea.

The country is steeped in war with the Mid-East Allied Forces, and viewers should get a deep look at the conflict. The second half will descend into an all-out-war between Marley and people of Pardis, making for an epic finale.

Release date

So far, no exact release date has been announced, though it’s set to release some time in October. In May, reports actually came out suggesting the season was going to be delayed, but with the surprise release of the trailer, it’s thought to still be going ahead.

Given the incredible amount of story already adapted, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the anime release on time.

The conclusion to Attack on Titan will definitely be something anime fans wont want to miss. Those needing to catch up in time for the finale can watch every single episode on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
