So the first season ended with a blast that resolved few of the issues regarding who was the female form titan which was Annie Leonhart but it also leaves us a lot of questions that kept us wondering. The first season had 26 episodes including the OVA but fans will be quite disappointed to learn that the second season will only get 12 episodes. If you think about that’s quite a few but Thomas Romain said that:
“Because of demand from companies like Netflix asking for full series in a limited time frame and insufficient budget to hire more people, the number of episodes made available to fans lessened.”
Thomas Romain started tweeting about the episode count for season two after the studio confirmed it. Naturally, People started to asked follow-up questions which Romain restated that the biggest issue was the lack of budget of the studios, Shows like Attack on Titan, he said, only get a few months of production time and it is incredibly difficult to make more than 12 good shows in such a small amount of time.
Thomas Romain do have a point specifically if the studio wants the quality of their work to be constant and at least they gave as the awesome clash between the Eren Jaeger(Assault Titan) and Reiner Braun(Armored Titan).
Some of the issues like who was the Armored Titan and the Colossal Titan were answered in episode six in season 2, but the question of why is there a titan inside the wall, where did Annie, Reiner and Bertolt and other titans come from, and what is inside the basement of Eren’s father, Unfortunately season 2 would not be covering those questions but the manga version have already answered those questions specially the question of who is the Beast Titan.
