If you ever wondered how key visuals are made, Pony Canyon has you covered with a making-of video of Attack on Titan’s latest key visual. The short video showcases some of the main steps, from drawing to digital editing, while Ashes to Fire plays in the background. The track was a part of the OST for the first part of the Final Season.
Tomohiro Kishi, character designer for Attack on Titan: Final Season Part 2, drew the key visual. The visual was revealed on November 14, after a special Attack on Titan event, which was dedicated to the upcoming season. At the time, studio MAPPA also shared the original drawing on their official Twitter:
Attack on Titan returns on January 9 at 00:05 JST, with episode 76. The episode is titled Condemnation and it picks off right where the last season ended. The preview for the episode came out on December 27, and it includes a synopsis, staff, as well as a preview image. Yuichiro Hayashi is directing the episode, while Hiroshi Seko is writing the screenplay. Hayashi is also directing the final installment of Attack on Titan anime.
Both Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the anime in English in select territories. Streaming services also recently announced that they are streaming Attack on Titan OAD specials, which previously weren’t available.
