In 2013, the very first season of Attack on Titan was broadcast. As the second part of the anime’s fourth (and final) season keeps fans on their toes, here are a few things you should know… because you never know, it’s all good to take to shine a little in society.
20 FACTS TO KNOW
- #1. Jean is Hajime Isyama’s favorite character. The reason ? Jean is the most human, the one who is not afraid to say what he thinks.
- #2. Eren’s titanic form is based on Yushin Okami, a Japanese mixed martial artist. Isayama felt he had the “ideal physique of a middleweight mixed martial artist”.
- #3. Marnia Inoue, who voices Armin, is also the voice of the narrator.
- #4. Armin celebrates his birthday on November 3 and the date suits him well: in Japan, November 3 celebrates culture and the arts.
- #5. In an episode of The Simpsons titled “Treehouse of Horror xxv”, Lisa is dressed as Mikasa. She even uses the 3D Maneuver Gear.
- #6. On average, Levi only sleeps 2-3 hours a day.
- #7. Marco’s birthday falls on June 16, exactly halfway through the year. It takes on a whole new meaning when we discover that only half of his body is found.

- #9. Yuki Kaji (who voices Eren) cried while reading the final season script.
- #10. Attack On Titan has seven episodes rated 9.9 or higher. While Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones have seven together.
- #11. There is a titled crossover ““Attack On Avenger” – where the Avengers fight against the Titans.
- #12. Levi loves tea, he collects varieties. He would even have liked to open a shop.
- #13. Levi’s birthday falls on December 25 (Christmas Day). There is even a Titan who looks like Santa Claus in the series.
- #14. If Isayama could say one thing to Levi, it would be “go to sleep”. The character suffers from insomnia.
- #15. In the anime, there is a Titan based on Isayama himself.
- #16. Initially, Jean and Armin were one and the same person.
- #17. There was a time when Isayama wanted a tragic ending in which all the characters died. But fortunately, the reception reserved for AOT pushed him to change his mind.
- #18. Mikasa is the first character imagined by Isayama when he created AOT.
- #19. According to statistics gathered in the AOT guide book, Hange and Zeke are the two most intelligent characters. #20. Isayama feels that Hange’s gender is completely irrelevant to the story: while the anime would tend to present the character as a woman, the mangaka leaves readers’ imaginations to choose between girl or boy. And then, Hange being one of the smartest characters in anime, who cares ?
And if you ever wondered, we know which AOT character you are, according to your Astro sign. It’s a gift.
