The WIT animation studio made the first three seasons of the “Shingeki no Kyojin” anime, but MAPPA was the one who took the post to take care of “The Final Season” with great results, despite the grueling and infamous production schedules for this series.
The adaptation of the manga will present its outcome after the end of the manga, which was published on April 9th on the Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in Japan, so we can expect a faithful adaptation of the outcome, although many readers were not satisfied with what was presented in the last chapter.
