    “I’ve been saying the series will end in 3 years for the past 8 years, but now it really is coming to an end. It’s been a really long time, but I hope you’ll join me right up until the end. By no means is it the fault of being delayed by the editorial team, but rather me these last years continuing to wonder when to end it. I’m sorry for that, but the end is finally here. I will work hard to the very end to ensure that you are all glad you have read the series up to now.”

  • Attack on Titan The Final Season’s Opening Theme Performed by Shinsei Kamattechan

    07.December.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    The final season of Attack on Titan is finally here, with the first episode having aired in Japan on Sunday (December 6). The anime’s opening theme Boku no Sensō (‘My War’) is performed by Shinsei Kamattechan who also performed the season two ending theme Yūgure no Tori.

    Attack on Titan The Final Season – Creditless Opening

    The opening theme Boku no Sensō is a chaotic banger fitting for the highly-anticipated finale of Attack on Titan. The TV-size version of the track will be released on digital music platforms in Japan on December 8. It is unconfirmed whether it will be available outside Japan, so be sure to check.

    Hajime Isayama (Attack on Titan author) | Comment

    “I’m over the moon for Shinsei Kamattechan to be doing the opening theme, I’m a huge fan of them. They have so many songs where the more I listen to them the more obsessed I become. ‘Boku no Sensō’ is just that. The scope of their imagination in that song is clear to see. I feel sacred* listening to this track too. I love the song, it’s packed with imagination.”

    *Translator’s Note: The name of the band is Shinsei Kamattechan, with shinsei meaning ‘sacred’ in Japanese.

     

    Noko (Shinsei Kamattechan, Lead Vocalist) | Comment

    “Attack on Titan and Shinsei Kamattechan both come from a similar place in that we’re grand in our scale. We performed the season two ending theme ‘Yūgure no Tori’ before, and like with that, we’ve been able to bring that scale to ‘Boku no Sensō’ too. We wanted to make something new as a band. We’ve always composed at home, but our imaginations really ran this time around. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to create with this song. And we’re grateful to all of the [anime] staff, not to mention [Hajime] Isayama. Japanese lyrics are included in the full version of the song, so I hope you look forward to hearing the full version. You’ll get the entirety of what the song’s about.”
