I would like to continue making more amazing memories together with director [Yuichiro] Hayashi and everyone at MAPPA for the continuation of the Attack on Titan anime!”

 

Yuichiro Hayashi (Director, Attack on Titan: The Final Season)

“I have been given the responsibility of director for the final season. My heart has been pounding since we’re in the middle of a battle in the anime, and because this is such a huge series. We’ve kindly received full cooperation from everyone at WIT as well as director [Tetsurō] Araki. They have set everything up for us up this point. The quality of the series up to now is thanks to them. The staff have poured blood and sweat into their work. We will continue that as much as possible, and put our utmost best into what we do. So please look forward to the final season of Attack on Titan!!”

 

Tetsurō Araki (Director, Attack on Titan Season 1 / Chief Director, Attack on Titan Seasons 2-3)

We are also really looking forward to seeing the continuation of Eren and everybody else’s journey!”

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.”
