Wit studio has been doing Attack on Titan since season 1 all way to season 3 part 2 that was released last year's April. However the franchise has changed animation studios to MAPPA now, which was been worrying to some as unlike Wit studio, MAPPA is less known for their action animes. MAPPA is mostly known from animes like Yuri on Ice, Kakegurui, Banana Fish and Dororo. MAPPA is known as rather ambitious and growing studio, who isn't afraid of taking on some less known IPs, but also studio whose quality can be bit up and down at times.

Nevertheless, MAPPA has relased trailed for the Fourth season of Attack on Titan so you can judge yourself how they are faring:



(and at least we can be glad it's not J.C.Staff, who doesn't rly animate and instead likes still images with zooms and shaky cameras).

Yup and Wit Studio's fight scenes in AOT were superb so I'm bit nervous for MAPPA. They haven't had huge franchise like this before and not even this type of show.

They do have a lot of momentum from the ending of season 3. I will admit the trailer looks pretty good, they've recreated the style quite well. Here's hoping they can keep it up throughout the series beyond these few scenes.

The trailer did look good so I'm kinda hyped, but will it match the heights of previous seasons animation wise? Probably not. But as long as it's good animation, if not necessarily the best, and provides a satisfying conclusion, fans should be happy.

That reminds me, I never started watching S2 of AOT since I drifted apart during the 3 year hiatus after Season 1 :haylul:
I should rewatch from the start in preparation lol.

MAPPA is a decent enough anime studio imo and they can definitely pull this off given that they don't skimp out on the animation.

I don't really mind, I saw the trailer before you told me this but like I barely noticed it, as long as the animations are good in important fight scenes I'm fine with it, they can skip the entire talking sections by just making their mouths move for all I care (I do like the story tho I just think the animations sould be reserved for high mobility situations). :sanapray:

True, they definitely aren't the worst studio who could have took this on. But I was still bit surprised as they havent' done shows like it before. Still that's a huge IP for MAPPA to take on and if they do well more plp will know them for sure for it.

Judging from the trailers, I think it'll be fine. I didn't notice any difference and Mappa is pretty decent, Yuri on Ice was inconsistent but Kakegurui is really good, one of the most beautiful out there, if you ask me.

Ayy I know Attack on Titan animation is really good but I'd pick Yumeko Jabami orgasming over Poker anyday :lisalaugh:
