In recent news, Attack on Titan Manga has reached its final 1% – 2%. Read more about it here.
Every anime has a source material. Attack on Titan is based on its manga for its source. Isayama confirmed that he plans to end the manga in 2020 at the latest. The 11-year streak of the manga is coming to an end.

Note: We highly condemn the usage of illegal websites to stream anime online. Watching anime through official websites acts as a form of encouragement for the creators of the anime.
Why did Attack on Titan Change Studios?
Wit Studios is actually a smaller studio compared to all the other famous animation production companies. One must understand that the production is always not in control of the anime. An Anime production company is merely a company that forms a contract to create animations as a project. The Atack on Titan committee chooses which company to create a contract with and how much to pay them.
Before Attack on Titan Anime was created, the producers and other committee members found Wit studios as a promising company to handle the project. Wit Studios has comparatively lesser employees and uses different methods. They aren’t capable of producing multiple animes at the same time due to insufficient staff.
The transfer of the Attack on Titan Project was decided long back. Wit Studios knew that it wouldn’t be possible to keep up with the projected schedule with their current resources. Which is why they had to give away their prized possession.
Due to this, a new production company was needed to take over the animation of the final season. Dozens of studios refused as it would be impossible for them to meet the expectations of fans as well as keep up with the tight schedule. After lots of time was lost, MAPPA Studios accepted the project and had immediately started working on creating a pre-animated teaser trailer to keep the fans at bay.
Finally, in May 2020, a trailer was released showing the new animation done by MAPPA Studios. The fans loved it but criticized the animations as they were used to seeing the same animation for 3 full seasons. And literally, every single aspect of the entire series was changed in the trailer.
WIT Studios VS MAPPA Studios
WIT Studios initially began in 2012 and Attack on Titan began in 2013. The anime series practically gave WIT Studios its recognition that it currently has today. Tetsuro Araki was the director of the series in the beginning and he had used his imagination and leadership to keep AOT running and well.
The staff had also stated that his entire heart and soul was what ran the series. His character and attitude were portrayed in his work which leads his team to follow him without any misunderstanding. Masashi Koizuka took over most of the hands-on duty and was still inspired by Araki. His energy was something that WIT studios had appreciated and was the reason for the success of Attack on Titan.
Arifumi Imai has been the action animation director from the beginning. His work speaks for itself. Every single AOT fan will remember the scene where Levi faces off against Kenny and his squad. The entire scene sent shivers down our spine. It is impossible for someone to even think of such an action sequence and then portray it on the screen like that. Takuma Ebisu is also responsible for many other mind-blowing scenes that AOT had to offer from day 1.
Unlike other animation studios, Wit Studios follow a unique method in their animations. Usually, digital effects are used after the shot is completed and colorized, but WIT studios create key shots and then use digital effects in between key frames of the anime. This method is usually used in human figure closeups. But in Attack on Titan, it was used for the Titans.
The producers has approached many other big animation productions to take on the production of the final season. But this was too big of a job for them as Attack on Titan is one of the biggest names in the anime industry and experimenting with it in its last season was very very dangerous for them.
Studio MAPPA was the only production company willing to take up the challenge and rise to the occasion. Most fans are not favoring the art style and animation used in Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4, but we must also understand that they have done an amazing job in trying to keep up with such high expectations.
MAPPA has created some of the best animes out there. Few of them have won several awards and have some of the best animations to date. Uniqueness and differently themed styles are not new to them. Kakeguri is the best example, the weird and scary expression portrayed in the anime are extremely difficult to master. Those expressions and movements were used constantly during the entire anime. The level of consistency and professionalism is really applaudable.

With all things said and done, in the end, Wit Studios had created a relationship and bond over the creation of Attack on Titan. And that was clearly shown in their work in the past few years. Needless to say, fans will surely miss Wit studios. But the best part of life is trying out new things. We have only seen a few promotional videos, it is still too early to show hatred towards MAPPA Studios. Who Knows? they might have a few highly animated scenes which might end up giving us goosebumps.
Manga readers already know what I’m talking about. There are a few scenes that gave readers goosebumps by just reading the manga. Imagine those extraordinary scenes in animation, it will literally leave you speechless.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Updates
MAPPA has taken over the production of the Attack on Titan Anime franchise. Shingeki no Kyojin Season 4 has hyped up the fans too much that every single detail now matters to keep up with the hype.
AOT Season 4 has a different art which is more blunt, vibrant, and realistic. But, it doesn’t sit well with the animation art that all the fans were used to watching since 2013.
