It has taken some years, but the fourth and final season of Attack on Titan has gone live. The update has been handled with great care by Mappa in the wake of a studio swap, but it seems not everyone is giving the newcomers a break. Ever since the show returned to air, a dogged group of anti-fans have made it a mission to harass the team at Mappa for their work on Attack on Titan. And now, it seems the fanbase at large has had enough of the rude netizens.
Over on Twitter, fans can find the topic 'Thank You Mappa' trending around the world. The hashtag began after anti-fans began harassing members of the season four team online yet again. This incident follows after episode five director @teriteri5 was ganged up on over their soundtrack choice. After going private for a short while, the Attack on Titan director returned last week with a plea for kindness. But as you can see below, anti-fans have not cared to heed those words.
How can a fandom be this rude and embarrassing pic.twitter.com/dE3W2boRls— 🥛 (@bestbuymilk) January 17, 2021
As such, fans are pushing back on the hate with as much love as they can muster. Season four has been a whirlwind of stress for Mappa in the wake of Wit Studios exiting. The former studio was ready to move on from the show ahead of its final season, but given Attack on Titan's stressful reputation, most studios did not care to touch season four. The only taker was Mappa, and the studio has done a gorgeous job with the season so far. Without the studio, fans would not have gotten a season four in a timely fashion if at all. Despite a pandemic, Mappa has managed to exceed expectations with the series, and fans are vying for haters to drop Attack on Titan if they are so upset. Nothing ever warrants harassing the show's team, and that is that.
What do you make of this trending topic? Can you believe fans are acting this way towards Attack on Titan's staff? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
