Rumors about the plot have started circulating as well. One major rumor going around is that the second season will no longer follow the manga's storyline, according to Movie News Guide. This may be a big game changer for the anime. If it no longer needs to follow the manga, would it mean following seasons will be released sooner?
Fans speculate that the second season will focus on a clash between Eren and Zeke. Zeke is able to turn into a Titan while still retaining most of his human intelligence, making him a deadly foe to Eren and the gang.
Fans think that the backstory of the walls and titans will be featured in the new season. They also say that Krista and her family's secret will be highlighted, according to iTech Post. Once their secret is revealed, it's said that fans will know more about a secret group called the "Coordinate".
Attack on Titan is a Japanese post-apocalyptic fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. It is extremely popular, with 60 million printed copies worldwide. The story is set in a world where giant humanoid beings called Titans eat humans without any apparent reason.
The story focuses on Eren Yeager and his friends Misaka Ackerman and Armin Arlert, who join the fight against Titans after their town is destroyed. But all is not as it seems, as it looks like the Titans are even closer to them than they think.
