Attack on Titan episode 76 review - The anime's final chapter has arrived!

Attack on Titans is one of the most popular anime series, and despite its relatively brief run in comparison to other manga, it has gained a devoted following.

The anime adaptation of Hajime Isayama's story, which began showing in 2013, helped to bring his story to a wider audience. With protracted hiatuses, Attack on Titan fans have had to learn to cultivate a solid sense of patience. between the seasons of the animated series' production

And, despite the fact that the manga concluded last year, the anime's last season ended in March 2021 with a huge cliffhanger at the end of the first half. The second portion of this final season of Attack on Titan has finally been released, over a year after we watched chapter 75 of the anime.

Season four began a few years after season three ended, introducing us to the people of Marley and featuring an action-packed storyline in which Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and the rest of the Survey Corps launched a deadly attack on Liberio.

Things have not been easy on Parads during these chapters, with many factions attempting to gain control of the island and numerous plots. With the Jaegeristas plotting a revolt and Zeke successfully enlisting the military in his plan to transform them into titans, the tension has been rising chapter by chapter.

As if that wasn't enough, the attack on Marley had repercussions, and the enemy troops decided to start their own counterattack against Parads earlier than planned, completely surprising an Eren who was more vulnerable than ever.

The fourth season's last stretch is slated to contain 12 episodes, and episode 76 of the anime has finally been seen on Crunchyroll, where it will be presented weekly in Japanese with Spanish subtitles, though only with Premium subscription.

The first chapter of the second half of the last season picks up right where the first left off, with a narratively clear cut that is ideal for continuing to watch the anime.

We won't give anything away if you're an anime fan, but it appears that a number of the biggest mysteries we were left with in the previous chapter have been resolved, notably the fate of Zeke and Levi Ackerman.

Marley's surprise invasion on the island of Paradis continues, with enemy air forces attacking and his Titans battling Eren.

Overall, MAPPA's animation is outstanding, particularly in action situations. Because the second half of the season was more condensed, they were able to devote more time to each scene, polishing every aspect and leaving us with a stunning outcome.

The prior batch of episodes was blamed for a quality dip, which they were able to rectify and spare. It has also vastly improved the integration of classic 2D animation with the CGI animation used for titans and battles, effortlessly tricking the eye.

It's an action-packed episode with a lot of stakes for Eren Jager and Reiner Braun, in which their rivalry is masterfully exploited, though Pieck Finger and Porco Galliard also get their moments to shine as giants of their own.

We have to warn you that if what you're waiting for after the sabbatical is a significant storyline advance and the conclusion of numerous narrative fronts, you're going to get a song in the teeth.

As previously said, chapter 76 of Attack on Titans is a good uncut continuation of its predecessor, therefore it should not be considered a new chapter of a new season or a "mid-season final" to the American audience. Yes, it helps us with a few minor issues, but it falls short in terms of story development.

Despite this, some pearls have begun to fall, pointing the story toward its conclusion, with a particular focus on the Paths, Ymir, and the actual significance of the Titans. It's a "catching up" chapter, with the characters preparing for the coming fireworks by recapitulating and remembering where the pieces of the board were left.

This new chapter of Attack on Titan is regarded a decent beginning that knows nothing, but it manages to continue the plot perfectly, maintaining a good rhythm and providing little details.

What we can't help but think is that, in theory, the anime only has eleven more chapters, and given how long this first chapter takes to finish the plot, it'll be interesting to see if MAPPA is able to condense the entire tale into so few episodes satisfactorily and cleanly.

Of course, for the time being, it appears like they know what they're doing in terms of the series' rhythm, as the episode rushes by, leaving us in suspense and with a strong desire for the next chapter to arrive.

ASSESSMENT: The beginning of Attack on Titan's last portion is an action-packed chapter with outstanding and meticulous animation. It doesn't resolve a lot of narrative points or cliffhangers after such a long time, but it's a nice start toward the conclusion of the story.

THE BEST: MAPPA's animation, particularly in the action scenes, and the chapter's superb flow.

WORST: After such a lengthy delay, it feels a little "lazy" in terms of frame resolution and cliffhanger.
