New TV anime series premieres on April 1

Southeast Asian channel Aniplus Asia began streaming the English-subtitled second promotional video for the second season of the Attack on Titan anime on Saturday. The video features the Beast Titan and battle between the Titans and main human characters.

The second season's first promotional video, which includes some of the same footage, premiered in December. Aniplus Asia streamed the video with English subtitles. English-subtitled interview videos with the second season's chief director Tetsuro Araki and director Masashi Koizuka began streaming earlier this month.

The series will premiere in Japan on 21 networks, including Tokyo MX and MBS, on April 1. Aniplus Asia will begin streaming the series on April 2. Aniplus Asia announced in December that it licensed the second anime season.

Tetsuro Araki, the director of the first anime season, is acting as the chief director on the second season, and episode director Masashi Koizuka is taking over as director. Many of the other main staff members, including series writer Yasuko Kobayashi, character designer Kyoji Asano, and composer Hiroyuki Sawano are returning from the first season. WIT STUDIO is again producing the animation. Linked Horizon is returning to perform the opening theme song. The main cast is also returning.

The first 25-episode season aired from April-September 2013. The first season also inspired two compilation anime films in 2014 and 2015.

Hajime Isayama's original manga has also inspired numerous spinoff manga, several novel series, a two-part live-action film project, a spinoff live-action television series, and an OVA. Two of the spinoff manga — Attack on Titan: No Regrets and Attack on Titan: Junior High — received anime adaptations of their own.

Isayama launched the manga in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and Kodansha published the 21st volume in Japan on December 9. Kodansha will publish the 22nd volume on April 7. Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in print in English. Various publishers in Southeast Asia publish the manga in their respective countries' native languages.
