With the long awaited season two of Attack on Titan and season three reportedly not being too far away, Attack on Titan illustrator Hajime Isayama has celebrated the occasion with a new sketch. This piece of artwork that Isayama drew and posted online is of some of the main members of the Survey Corps, the soldiers who protect humanity from the Titans.
Although, as Attack on Titan fans discovered in season two, some of these members are actually Titans themselves. The sketch showcases the regular Survey Corps in Eren Yeager, Levi Ackerman, Mikasa Ackerman, Ymir, Historia Reiss, Armin Arlert, Jean Kirstein, Sasha Blouse, Erwin Smith, Hange Zoe and Connie Springer.

Although, the poster-like sketch also includes traitors Reiner Braun and Bertolt Hoover, who were discovered to be the Colossal and Armoured Titan in season two. This traitorous duo was behind the initial breach of the walls at the start of the entire series, as well as the ones who let in the Titan that killed Eren’s mother. That possibly means that Bertolt and Reiner are still considered part of the Survey Corps by Isayama, despite them being spies for an unknown organization from outside the wall. Eren and Ymir are also known Titans, with Ymir having an affiliation with Bertolt and Reiner, as well as an attachment to the Survey Corps.
This poster-like sketch by Isayama is likely just a glimpse of more to come, as season three of Attack on Titan’s production is underway. However, fans shouldn’t wait as long as they did for season two. This is due to Attack on Titan season three is expected to hit their screens in 2018, which the creators announced at the end of the final episode of season two.
