The official anime of “Shingeki no Kyojin“said goodbye a couple of weeks ago, leaving us what was the longest episode of all that I had seen in the adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s work. In fact, I emphasize the term ‘official’ because today I come to talk about “Attack on Titan: Requiem“, a fan project announced a few years ago that, now, has finally confirmed when it can be seen around the world.
Attack on Titan: Requiem will still take a while to release, but there is finally confirmation
Before leaving you with the news of this project as well as a general review of it in case there are any doubts, I share with you the latest teaser trailer that they have published about “Attack on Titan: Requiem”:
And now, write down all the details you should know:
- Officially, Attack on Titan: Requiem premieres during the fall of 2024. At the moment there is no release date as such, but presumably the debut will take place between October and December of next year. 🤗
- What is Attack on Titan: Requiem? Well basically a fan anime that aims to change the final chapters of the Shingeki no Kyojin manga and anime. In fact, there is a 4-part manga version that at this point has already published 3. You can read them from the official page of Attack on Titan: Requiem itself. 😎
- The team behind Attack on Titan: Requiem is Studio Eclypsewhich will be familiar to more than one because it has recently confirmed the ambitious Berserk: The Black Swordsman. Indeed, they also aim to give Kentarou Miura’s work that adaptation as an anime that has not quite hit the nail on the head to date. 😮
To make it clearer what “Attack on Titan: Requiem” is and what the objectives of this work are, I leave you below the official description that can be read on the website.
What is Attack on Titan: Requiem about?
AoT no Requiem explores an alternative ending to the canon material. Based on the Akatsuki no Requiem music video, this doujinishi aims rewrite the final 3 chapters of Attack on Titan (137, 138, 139). This is a long chapter divided into several parts, following the events of the previous chapters that presented the original material (1-136). AoT no Requiem is the work of a group of fans who share a strong passion for Isayama’s work. Please continue to support the Attack on Titan franchise by following the official post.
Out of curiosity, I have read 3 of the 4 available parts of “Attack on Titan: Requiem” (the fourth part does not have a release date right now) and the truth is, it is not bad at all. By this I don’t mean that it is neither better nor worse than Hajime Isayama’s original ending, but It is noticeable that the dialogues are written by people who followed the author’s work very closely.. In the end, these interpretations made out of respect don’t seem bad to me, especially to keep the universe of “Shingeki no Kyojin” alive. We’ll see how the anime does next year.
