Hajime Isayama (Author, Writer and Illustrator, Attack on Titan)

“With this, the entirety of Attack on Titan has been adapted into anime. For that, I give my heartfelt thanks to all of the readers who have supported the series up to now. The manga has been serialised more than 10 years, so we’ve been together for quite some time now. To director [Tetsurō] Araki, WIT STUDIO, everyone in the Storyboard Corps, and everybody else, I would like to thank you for giving me so many happy memories—so many I could die! 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)

“Our beloved anime series Attack on Titan will continue with an incredible battle formation formed of MAPPA and director Yuichiro Hayashi. We’ve been mutually exchanging information with them and holding meetings for quite a long time now. I’m positive they will piece this out, no doubt about it. We are also really looking forward to seeing the continuation of Eren and everybody else’s journey!”

 

Manabu Otsuka (CEO, MAPPA)

“Attack on Titan is a series loved by countless fans. It will continue with a great studio, and a team of outstanding creators. I feel motivated at the fact that the studio will be part of the series’s final season. I look forward to us freely forging the final battle.”

 

George Wada (CEO, WIT STUDIO)

“The final season of Attack on Titan has finally been announced!! It has taken a long time for us to prepare for this, but first and foremost, I’m extremely happy that we have arrived at this point. We laid the foundations for the greatest manga ever, and the greatest team ever will be adapting the final season. I have nothing but high hopes. To all of you out there, please look forward to it!!”

    “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. The final season’s ending theme Shōgeki is performed by Yūko Andō.

    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.”
