I say this with all due respect to the creative staff who are putting together the final season of Attack on Titan, but my dudes… seriously?

That’s right folks, at the conclusion of the latest episode in Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 2, the staff revealed they will not broadcast the real ending until 2023. The Japanese text says that this new part will be the conclusion. If my elementary school math is correct, that puts the anime finale out a full two years behind the final volume of the manga and a full ten years behind when the anime series first premiered.
I haven’t followed Attack on Titan since the first season, but I can’t imagine the anguish of anime fans who have been waiting so very long to see how this series is going to end (I’m meaning those who haven’t or won’t read the manga). Just how maddening must it have been to sit down for what you assumed would be the conclusion only to be told that you have to wait for yet another year? Frustrating wouldn’t even begin to describe the feeling that I would have felt if I were in your shoes.
Adapting the manga of the same name created by Hajime Isayama, the Attack on Titan anime adaptation first premiered in the spring 2013 season and became an instant smash hit with fans all over the world.
In the first season, the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is forced to live in walled-off cities to protect themselves from colossal beings known as Titans who attack randomly and literally eat people. After witnessing his mother being killed by one of these Titans, Eren joins the Survey Corps, which is charged with protecting the people and hunting the Titans.
