When you think about Japan, some of the things that’ll first come to mind may be food, crazy inventions, and of course, anime (アニメ). Anime plays a large role in Japanese culture and it is a fact that you can never be too young nor too old to love it. Even if you’re not a fan of anime, you have most likely heard of the names Naruto (ナルト), Son Goku (孫悟空), or even Doraemon (ドラえもん)!
April is the beginning of a new season for new airing animes and as much as many of you have waited, one of the most popular names in anime will finally be making its comeback. Eren, Mikasa (ミカサ), Levi (リヴァイ) and the rest of the gang are back and there’s more to their return than just anime!

The second season of Attack on Titan is airing from April 1st 2017 in Japan and will be continuing off from the last episode of the first season. A short story introduction of episode 26, Kemono no Kyojin (獣の巨人) or Titan Beast, is also on the official website of the second season.
