Attack on Titan has been getting ready to come back for the third and presumably final part of its fourth and final season next year, and one awesome cosplay has been showing off just how far Mikasa Ackerman has come by tapping into her original Survey Corps look! The anime has evolved far beyond where it first began as not only as the central antagonist shifted to an apocalyptic new kind of level, but the surviving humans have been battered down by years of trauma, loss, and seemingly never ending war. It's something that humanity has been gripping with over the course of the final season.
Mikasa has been through a particularly intense path through the series thus far as not only had she become one of the main fighters in the Survey Corps, but after all these years it's starting to take a toll on her as Eren Yeager ends up becoming the very last monster that she will have to take down. It's hard to imagine the earlier seasons as the "good old days" for each of the Survey Corps, but seeing one awesome Mikasa cosplay from artist @maripicosplay on Instagram highlighting her season one look is a real nostalgic blast from the good past! Check it out below:
Attack on Titan: Final Season Part 3 is currently slated to released next year as part of the Winter 2023 anime schedule, but has yet to confirm a concrete release date as of this writing. There have been no new promotional materials such as posters, promos, or trailers released for the new episodes since the original announcement earlier this year so there are still many questions about what we can expect from this next (and maybe last) phase of the massively popular anime adaptation. But thankfully it likely won't be too much longer.
The final episodes of the second part had kicked off The Rumbling at last as Eren Yeager is now using the Founding Titan's power to annihilate the world outside of the island of Paradis. It's obviously not what the Survey Corps wants to happen, and now they have formed a final alliance with the other remaining members of humanity as they get ready for one final gambit to save the world somehow and in some way.
