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.

Bizarre Pokemon Journeys scene goes viral

In the November 27 episode of the Pokemon Journeys anime, Ash and Goh both participate in an eating contest. The competition has Trainers seeing whose ‘mon can consume the most food in the shortest time possible.

However, things took a cruel turn when the final dish served was a cuisine in the shape of Torchic. Blaziken’s appetite quickly turned sour at the thought of eating something shaped like his own species.

The Gen III character then stood up and quit the contest after shedding a tear. The incredibly strange cannibalism-like dilemma went viral after being uploaded to Reddit on November 30.

While the Torchic are technically a dessert item, the scene left some fans feeling disturbed or sympathetic towards the Pokemon’s plight. “I feel you Blaziken, being forced to eat your kind is cruel,” one fan wrote. Another user exclaimed “Who’s the sick b****rd that decided to try to make a Blaziken eat Torchics?”

Pokemon fans react to the disturbing anime scene on Reddit.

Despite only having aired in Japan, the scene quickly spread online as the community found it both be hilarious and creepy. Popular artist ‘popemadara‘ made a comedic drawing that went viral on Twitter that depicts other Pokemon in the same dilemma as Blaziken.

While it’s true that people eat human-shaped edibles called gingerbread men, the Torchic food item was disturbingly detailed. If nothing else, the situation showed that the Fire-type monster has a softer side.

Pokemon Journeys is currently still airing in Japan, however North American viewers can catch the first half of the series now on Netflix which is broken up into Part 1 and 2.
