Attack on Titan Seasons
The first season of Attack on Titan was aired on MBS TV from April 7, 2013 to September 29, 2013. There are a total of four seasons. The last part of the final season, which will conclude the whole story, is yet to come.
For more than 100 years, humanity has been trapped inside gigantic walls. These walls; Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sina prevent man-eating titans to enter and wipe out the humanity. But one day, a Colossal titan breaks down the Wall Maria and allows other small titans to enter the Shiganshina district. The titans destroy Shiganshina and one of the titans eats Carla Jaegar the mother of Eren Jaegar. Then, Eren vows to kill all the titans.
The anime follows the story of Eren. As the episodes go on, the story becomes better and better with many groundbreaking twists. With every season, we get to know more about the AoT world and the real truth behind the titans.
Attack on Titan OVAs
There are eight OVAs of Attack on Titan. It is not necessary to watch them. If you do not have time, you can simply proceed with the seasons and skip the OVAs. But if you want to know more about the characters of AoT, then you should watch them. I recommend you to watch Ilse’s Notebook and No Regrets. The story of Ilse’s Notebook is really good. No Regrets focuses on the backstory of Levi Ackerman.
Attack on Titan: Junior High is a comedy anime, a parody of the original series Attack on Titan. It has a total of 12 episodes. You can watch it if you want to have a fun time.
About The Movies
Attack on Titan has movies too. However, these movies only recap the seasons of AoT. If you are watching series, then you do not need to watch the movies. You can watch them if you want to have a quick recap. The movies are;
- Attack on Titan: Crimson Bow and Arrow (2014)
- Attack on Titan: The Wings of Freedom (2015)
- Attack on Titan: The Roar of Awakening (2018)
- Attack on Titan: Chronicle (2020)
Attack on Titan also has a live action movie which is divided into two parts. The first part of the movie came in 14 July, 2015 and the second part in 19 September, 2015. The live action movie does not cover the whole story of AoT. Many AoT fans do not like this live movie adaptation and there are no further information about the release of other sequels as well.
That’s the end of the watch order guide. Attack on Titan is a must watch anime. You will love it for sure.
