‘Attack on Titan’ Fans Are Worried About Levi Ackerman After the Anime’s Season 4B Trailer

Attack on Titan takes its final bow with the second half of season 4, which will bring Eren Jaeger’s story to a close. It’s unclear if the anime’s lead will get the happy ending — and freedom — he’s been searching for. However, the Attack on Titan Season 4B trailer promises to end things on a tense, action-packed note either way. There’s plenty to take in after watching the new footage, but one moment in particular has viewers worried. Toward the beginning, there’s a shot that might reveal Levi Ackerman’s fate — and Attack on Titan fans aren’t feeling optimistic about the beloved character.

The characters in Attack on Titan have come a long way since the anime’s premiere back in 2013. They’ve made progress in their fight against the Titans, but they’ve also learned who was behind the creatures’ creation. The latter development led to war in the anime’s most recent outings.

Paradis Island and Marley will finish that war in Attack on Titan season 4B, which will reveal the fates of all the main characters — and humanity as a whole. The stakes are high heading into the new episodes, and the trailer underscores that fact.

The footage teases plenty of action ahead, including another showdown between Eren and Reiner. The Armored Titan wasn’t doing too well last time they met, but he appears to have found his footing for the big finale.

Of course, things are officially more complicated than Paradis vs. Marley. After Eren’s actions in season 4A, Paradis will see fighting amongst different factions of its military. How things play out is anyone’s guess, but they’re sure to get messy for everyone involved.

Fans are worried about Levi Ackerman after watching the new footage

While all of the characters’ fates hang in the balance heading into Attack on Titan Season 4B, the trailer has viewers worried about one person in particular. Season 4A ended with Zeke turning the tables on Levi Ackerman, transforming into the Beast Titan and sending the captain flying. Attack on Titan never revealed what became of Levi after that — but the new footage holds a clue.

At 0:18, there’s a shot of Hange holding a bloodied Levi — and his lifeless eyes don’t bode well for the character. Levi’s one of the toughest members of the Scouts Regiment, but he’s not invincible. Could the new season seal his fate? Overwhelmingly, that’s the question fans are asking on Twitter.

Those who have read the manga know the answer, but anime-only viewers will be left wondering until the new episodes air. So, when does Attack on Titan Season 4B arrive?

In addition to receiving its first trailer, Attack on Titan Season 4B got an official release date — and it’s sooner than most fans expected. The anime returns for its final outing on Jan. 9, 2022. That means viewers can kick off the new year — and Winter 2022 anime season — with the series.

The new season could keep fans waiting before revealing Levi’s fate, but hopefully, Attack on Titan won’t keep them in the dark for too long. After all, there are bigger problems to deal with, including whatever Eren is planning.
