With it being the last season and all, it has an extreme amount of pressure on it to do as greatly as possible but they got practically a year to plan this out so I hope to not see any F ups but AOT rarely does that so im not worried
my hopes are:
first off, 20 episodes please, 10 just isnt enough I dont think
and I want the finale to be 1 hour long please, I know its a modern trope to make series finales long but this show has earned a long finale, if I get to that finale of this epic show and its only like 20 minutes long, which I think all the episodes are, it says on hulu that they are 24 minutes but some of that goes to the opening credits, closing credits and commercials. A 20 min. series finale?, give me a break.
I want more action which is expected but like between characters and titans who havent fought. Like I would have an orgasm in my mind, not a sexual arouse but just a fanboy geek out moment if the colossal titan fought the resisting titans, unfortunately due to its size, it cannot exactly move like a cheetah, its big and slow. Also this last battle will be interesting to see play out cause its nine soldiers of the eldians left but eren has the attack titan and armin has the colossal titan going against three titans and their army of humans, so both have an advantage and disadvantage.
new characters and the remaining titans show up, I know what they are but I am excited to see them on tv
I would say maybe have old characters show up, but idk, bertholdt and erwin seem likely but there are a ton of humans and titans that are considered minor that I cant see showing up. I could see rod reiss, grisha, grishas wife(i forget her name) and erens mom showing up but they arent exactly on my list to see again. Annie is someone I think we will definetely see again. I cant imagine her in wall maria forever in a stone.
i would like if they ended up redeeming all the bad guys, like even if the marlenians see what they are doing as good, at least have them give up cause they've been beaten so hard, so it wouldnt be a change of attitude, it would be a change of sides if that makes sense, if they cannot redeem all the remaining villians, at least redeem a few of them, a few of the titans I hope
this is a trope, to use the devil as the final boss of these types of stories but because they brought him in, they can maybe use him as a final boss that the titans and humans allign to defeat. Maybe they can even reveal ymir(not founding titan ymir but present day ymir) is like the reincarnation of the earth devil cause their titan forms look similar.
bring in any remaining powers but please keep it realistic okay, like yes, the bigger the titan the better I suppose, any bigger than colossal titan and rod reiss titan but you cant exactly have them get beyond the ozone layer and into outer space otherwise they would suffocate from lack of oxygen unless they can regenerate but even then I'd have an issue with maybe.
finally answer any unanswered questions, luckily there arent alot but there are still a
what exactly did historia see when she had that vision thing in the previous episode
will the eldians use annie(her titan at least) as a weapon or leave her there?
is the earth devil still alive?
are there other devils cause they called him the earth devil which implies there are is a devil for every planet
I do hope when it ends, it ends then and there, apart from the obvious cliffhanger of what happens next, Im talking about new mysteries showing up, like no, please none of that, this isnt pokemon or dragonball where it has the potential to drag on for many seasons, this isnt one of those mangas, it should just be titans and humans and animals. If they want to experiment on animals and create animal titans, go for it I suppose.
And these are just my hopes, my opinions on what I'd like to see, feel free to share what u all want to see happen, I may know soon in a way what is to happen cause I'm about to read into the mangas cause I dont think I can wait till next years fall, I dont think I can do that.
