‘Attack on Titan’ Season 2 News & Update: Eren Turns to the Titan His Father Hoped [VIDEO]; Season 2 To Feature 'Uprising' ArcBy A. Lara, UniversityHerald Reporter
The all new "Attack on Titan" Season 2 series will premiere on April 2017 and spoilers are emerging non stop. Now that Rod Reiss, a head of the Reiss family is a confirmed Titan shifter, fans can't help but wonder if Krista will inherit her father's power. Known as heir to the Reiss family, Krista joins Survey Cops with Eren, Ymir and Mikasa.
Now, it's Eren's turn to become the Titan his father hoped him to be. "Attack on Titan" Season 2 will feature Eren fighting a Colossus Titan. His transformation was never featured in "Attack on Titan" Season 1, but this time, we might see him transform for all the right reasons. The character of Eren is known to be the careless one among the rest of the team, and despite his good intentions, he somehow ends up putting his companions in danger.
According to the Asahi Shimbun, Eren's new transformation brings hope to the people within the city, and his new found power will protect them from the wrath of the Titans. "Attack on Titan" Season 2 will tell the story of a single Titan who happened to penetrate the walls of the city. During a routine, Hange and his troop noticed the Titan emerging through the walls.
The new discovery will cause panic, hence, the formation of the Survey Corps to protect the people. So where did Eren get his Titan form? News reveals that in the "Attack on Titan" Season 1, his father, Dr.Yeager injected him with a rare type of serum, something that will readily turn Eren to a Titan form when threatened. Meanwhile, "Attack on Titan" Season 2 is expected to follow the storyline of the manga series "Clash of the Titan" and "Uprising."
The Parent Herald described "Clash of the Titan" as the episode when the battle began after the Titans were discovered emerging from the city walls. "Uprising" on the other hand tells the story after pastor Nich was murdered and Krista and Eren were kidnapped.
