Attack on Titan has once again proven that the franchise is destined for greatness. The MAPPA-produced first part of The Final Season has just been touted Anime of the Year at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards. In addition to that, Season 4 nabbed four other major awards including Best VA performance for Yuki Kaji!
Crunchyroll shared the results of The Anime Awards 2022, confirming that Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 1 has bagged the Anime of the Year award. It's not a huge surprise considering all the hype for the first part of The Final Season after it was confirmed that MAPPA would take over the production.
In addition to taking home the Best Anime award, Attack on Titan also got the Best Antagonist award for Eren Yeager in his role in Season 4 Part 1. The anime was awarded Best Opening Sequence for Boku no sensou by Shinsei Kamattechan and Yuichiro Hayashi for the storyboard and direction, and Yuki Kaji got the Best VA Performance (Japanese) for playing Eren in the first 16 episodes of The Final Season.
It's great to see that Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 1 is getting the recognition it deserves. However, there is little doubt that the second part will do just as well in the next Anime Awards.
The second part of Attack on Titan Season 4 is currently in full swing, thanks to what went down in the latest episode. In Episode 80, Eren finally convinced Ymir to defy Zeke Yeager and take his side, enabling the Rumbling to begin. Eren then announces to the subjects of Ymir that the Walls are collapsing to unleash the Titans so they can eliminate all life outside the island.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 22 is titled Thaw ("Hyokai") which is also the title of Chapter 124 of the manga. Episode 81 will be delayed due to the Winter Olympics coverage and will air on Monday, February 14, 2022, at 12:25 AM JST.
