One of the biggest strengths of Attack on Titan throughout the years of this dark anime’s story has been managing to throw out expectations, with story beats and mysteries often throwing viewers for a loop, which has certainly been the case in the fourth and final season of the television series. Now, two of the main voice actors of the series who play Eren Jaeger and Mikasa, Yuki Kaji and Yui Ishikawa respectively, are revisiting the past of the series, specifically the second season by Wit, which had one of the most emotional scenes of the show.
The episode in question which the two voice actors recreated was the second season finale, episode 37, titled “Scream” which saw Eren having to deal with Hange being eaten right before his eyes and managing to gain a new ability that he didn’t understand at the time. With the Scout Regiment facing down one of their greatest threats following the reveal that Reiner, Bertholdt, and Ymir were the Armored Titan, Colossal Titan, and Jaw Titan respectively. While Studio MAPPA took the reins of the series for the fourth and final season, revisiting the series’ past shows just how big the shoes MAPPA had to fill when it came to the work of Wit Studio.
Twitter Outlet AOTWiki shared the video of the live read of the season two finale of Attack on Titan, as the Scout Regiment was still attempting to figure out what was going on in their world while attempting to leverage the power of the Attack Titan to fight their way to freedom and survival:

The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan only has a few episodes left before it draws to a close, with those that followed the manga coming to the realization that it most likely won’t be possible for the MAPPA adaptation to tell the full story with the time it has left. With the big anime event, Anime Japan, set to have a panel focused on the series created by Hajime Isayama, many are waiting to see if the series will bring its story to a close via a new film or if a third part of season four is set to end the war between the Eldians and Marleyians.
