Attack On Titan Watch Order [Where To Watch]

 

Considered to be the best in all aspects, Attack on Titan is an action and post-apocalyptic anime. It is about the world where humanity is living in a city surrounded by big walls to protect themselves from man-eating humanoids called Titan.

 

The protagonist Eren Yeager is there to take down the Titans as they brought anarchy and destruction to his hometown, followed by the death of his mother.

 

All the themes and genres of the anime are well dealt with, as can be seen through the action present in the scenes as well as the character.

 

Coming to art and sound then it is subjective and deserves to be remembered. The relation between the series and the movie with the recap is also appreciable, whereas OVA becomes unique by putting the side story.

 

There are a total of 4 seasons of which seasons 3 and 4 are divided into two parts, making it complete 87 episodes.

 

Apart from the series, it also has 7 OVAs and 4 movies which makes things complicated for the audience. So to present a complete tour of the watch order, here is the accurate list:

 

 

Attack on Titan Chronological Watch Order

 

Chronological watch order is a sequential order of all the events that occurred in anime which include the scenes and story of certain series, OVAs, and movies.

 

It differs from the release order by events and plot that may be not going in the same direction as the storyline.

 

Attack on Titan is one of those anime that has almost the same release order as the watch one, except for the two movies: Attack on Titan: Crimson Bow and Arrow and Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom.

 

The place where one can start the anime is season one which carried 25 episodes and built the structures and then followed by 4 OVAs.

 

The only section that remained a bit different is Attack on Titan Season 3 because of an OVA called Attack on Titan: Lost in the Cruel World that divided season 3 part 1 into two parts.

Where to watch: Disney+ and Hulu

Hulu is again one of the best for Attack on Titan anime as it has all the episodes of the series, all parts of movies, and OVAs.

 

Disney+ is also the best for viewers to go for all the available seasons of Attack on Titan. However, one cannot access movies.

 

 

Attack on Titan Watch Order Based On Release Date

 

As Attack on Titan does not have a long difference in release date and watch order, so all the seasons and movies have linear positions, except for the first two movies.

 

It starts well with the series, Attack on Titan Season 1 in 2013 and still making its way to the current time.

 

So, here are all the needed information related to the watch order of Attack on Titan, based on the release date.

 

1. Attack on Titan Season 1

Season 1 starts the story of the franchise with a world where humanity exists in a city surrounded by big walls.

 

These walls are made for their protection from gigantic humanoids called Titans who were ready to destroy humans. It started with the adventure of protagonist Eren Jaeger and Mikasa with Armin whose lives got upside down when a Titan breaks the wall of their hometown.

 

To get revenge and his town back, Eren with his friends joined a group of soldiers to fight against the Titans.

 

The first season of the franchise became the most recommendable as it has completely mastered the art of action and building suspense through characters and many scenes.

 

It has created a sensation that leaves the audience wanting to see more.

 

2. Attack on Titan: Crimson Bow and Arrow

The first movie of Attack on Titan is nothing but the recap of season 1’s episodes 1 to 13. It retells the story of two arcs that was well presented in season 1: The Fall of Shiganshina arc and The Struggle for Trost arc.

 

The story is related to a dystopian world where living in peace has become an abnormal thing. But to make things fall into place, Eren, the protagonist with his friends vows to shun all the evils and make the place utopian.

 

The movie has nothing new in the story as everything was based upon the battles of Titans; however, it pumps out to be more original because of the plot and presentation through animation.

 

3. Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom

Wings of Freedom started at the point where the first part of the movie ended, that is episodes 14-25 of season 1.

 

It tells the story of three arcs present in season 1: the Eve of the Counterattack arc, The 57th Exterior Scouting Mission arc, and the Assault on Stohess arc.

 

The story of slaying the Titans has become messy at the time and the same goes with the repetitive plotline.

 

However, the animation and sounds were great. The story is again about humanity enclosing themselves in the walls because of the threat created by Titans.

 

Eren again becomes the hero with Armin and Mikasa when they join the Scout Regiment and fight against Titans.

 

4. Attack on Titan: Ilse’s Notebook

The story is more of a notebook that reveals a lot of things related to the Titans. It started in the year 850 when Eren and other members were training and they went on a mission with Hange to capture the Titan.

 

Hange suddenly saw a person thinking of him as a Titan who was discovered to be Ilse who was a soldier of the 34th Scout Regiment Division.

 

After getting killed by Levi, the notebook of Ilse was seen lying on the ground that revealed a lot of things related to Titan, resulting in Hange convincing Erwin to the operation to capture Titans alive.

 

It has two of the best things in which the first is information about Titans and the second one is the life and personality of the soldiers that include Ilse.

 

Coming to the plot then it is nothing but a puzzle where little action takes place.

 

5. Attack on Titan: The Sudden Visitor: The Torturous Curse of Youth

The story is set in 849 when Jean returns home after training for 2 years. He immediately gets into a dispute with Sasha that follows a training exercise.

 

To resolve things, Commander Pyxis suggested solving it through an appropriate cooking contest. While the contest was going on, a sudden appearance of a guest came into the story which was later on followed by the winning Jean.

 

The story was a bit away from the rest of the series for the franchise but at the same time, it has its uniqueness.

 

The characters were not that developed but the art and animation were to the point.

 

6. Attack on Titan: Distress

The story started in the year 848 when recruits were divided into groups to learn how to sustain themselves in a peaceful time.

 

Marco, the captain of the group, had a really hard time leading it, due to the arrogance of Jean and Eren.

 

Following these, a theft occurred in the group where Krista was taken hostage along with equipment. So to solve all these things, they must come as a pure team to rescue Krista.

 

This OVA is one of the recommended in the franchise because of the great storyline presented with a great plot.

 

The character development from all angles was seen through characters like Eren, Jean, Krista, and more.

 

7. Attack on Titan: No Regrets – Episodes One and Two

These two episodic OVA is the story of Levi Ackerman when he was a criminal doing his things in the underground city.

 

He was living with two of his friends named Farlan Church and Isabel Magnolia. The story then follows how Erwin Smith had him in the Survey Corps.

 

The characters appeared to be very energetic and lively and at the same time very cute with the capability of fighting Titans.

 

The episodes were directed by Tetsurō Araki and written by Yasuko Kobayashi while the designs were created by the hands of Kyoji.

 

Coming back to the characters then it was handled very beautifully with the story as if all the proportion was meant to be with a solid perspective.

 

However, a criticism followed with the plot and too much simplicity of the back story.

 

8. Attack on Titan: Junior High

The 12-episode OVA is related to the journey of Eren and his friends who came face to face with a Titan.

 

It started with their day of junior high when the lunch of Eren got stolen by the Titans and since then he held a grudge against the Titans.

 

Eren with his sister Mikasa and friend Armin try to encounter Titans in various extracurricular activities. It is also remarkable for its parody where characters are trying to solve silly problems which become entertaining at times.

 

However, characters were seen as exaggerated but also held comically. It ends well with great art and sound.

 

9. Attack on Titan Season 2

Season 2 of Attack on Titan has 12 episodes where protagonist Eren and his friends have just become full members of the Survey Corps.

 

They started fighting the Female Titan and reached towards the time when a bunch of Titans were seen approaching the Wall Rolls.

 

In this way, the battle for humanity started and followed great action. The Survey Corps started to save the wall while they try to uncover the dark secrets of their members and also about Titans.

 

The story is not dependent upon boring narratives but presents sequential events. Every character present in the series has concrete roles and actions with conflicts that have involvement of mystery and linear progress.

 

10. Attack on Titan: Wall Sina, Goodbye – One and Two

The first part was about the disappearance of a wealthy daughter, Carly Stratmann, of a merchant living in the Stohess District.

 

To get Carly back into the family, Hitch gave the responsibility to Annie Leonhart. Anne started the mission and contacted the Stratmann family to know about the circumstances that led to the disappearance of Carly.

 

The second started with the death of Carly's boyfriend. To solve the things and know about the killer, Anne went again on a mission but herself got kidnapped by two rogues.

 

The suspense in OVA was good and appreciable just like the character Anne, however, the development was missing. The drama was really exciting as it had a salad of emotions.

 

11. Attack on Titan: The Roar of Awakening

It is the third recap movie that covers the story till the point where season 2 ends. It is about the arc called the Clash of the Titans.

 

It started with the revelation that some of the foe Titans were still hiding as humans after a great defeat.

 

It covers emotions like rage and helplessness as the life of remaining humans were at stake but soon Eren with The Scouting Legion fights to protect them.

 

The story started when the first Titan, Anne, got captured by them and ends with humanity taking a large step towards truth.

 

12. Attack on Titan Season 3 (Part 1)

The threats of Titans on humans continue as humanity is still trapped inside big walls. Eren recovered and devoted himself to recovering his Titan form.

 

Erwin is also in the story who recovered and Levi was also shown as he chooses Eren and his friends to be in a new squad.

 

The story changes as the government demands the custody of Krista and Eren. The visual animation is definitely 10 upon 10 as it has the quality of the production values that one can easily compare with other seasons.

 

Coming to characters then the protagonist Eren had a pretty good development with some chemistry and history, thus becoming an overall mature character.

 

The second one is Levi who became interested in the story, especially the times he was leading the new squad to kill other humans.

 

13. Attack on Titan: Lost in the Cruel World

It is an eight-episode OVA which is about Mikasa recording the time when she, Eren, and Armin were living in the old days.

 

She then started to worry about the protagonist and started recalling another memory during the time of Struggle for Trost when Armin came to inform the death of Eren.

 

In the shock of these, Mikasa experienced a new kind of reality where she got to know about her parents being alive.

 

Overall it was a great pick chosen by the franchise however, the character of Mikasa was exaggerated at times as a narrative, and characters are seen to lack significance.

 

14. Attack on Titan Season 3 (Part 2)

To restore humanity and its peace, the Survey Corps goes on a mission to have Wall Maria back leading to a battle against the Titans.

 

Eren and the Corps returned to their district which was considered their home and found the town totally unoccupied by Titans.

 

They found no opposition and decided to progress the mission very smoothly until the time Armin discovered a sign of the scheme.

 

The story was easy to get but the alliteration of the battle between the Titans and the protagonist led to some boring scenes.

 

However, the art and character kept things on point even after the plot remained heavy all the time.

 

15. Attack on Titan: Chronicle

Chronicle is another recap movie that shows all the happenings of the previous three released seasons. It combines episodes 1 to 59 and made it an event of 2 hours.

 

It was well-directed by Masashi Koizuka as well as Tetsurô Araki. The first 20 seconds of the movie is nothing but a narration that retells the story of humans living inside gigantic walls to protect themselves from destructive Titans.

 

And the rest of the movie is about how Eren and his friends deal with it. The visuals and audio were the same as anime but coming to the animation and the story adaptation then it lacks the originality of the previous three movies.

 

Talking about all the needed characters then they were seen with different tones that worked in favor of this movie.

 

16. Attack on Titan Season 4 (Part 1)

The Final Season is about the collision of two worlds as each pursues its agenda to fight for freedom. The story started with Falco Grice and Gabi Braun who trained their whole life to get one of the Seven Titans under the control of Marley.

 

However, their peace suddenly got distracted by Eren and some of the members of the Survey Corps. When they finally reached the basement of the Yeager family, the Survey Corps got to know about the answers to the questions they always wanted to uncover.

 

With the truth coming into their hands, the only thing they want is to put their world beyond the walls.

 

The story was unique as this time Titans were not just the enemy but also humanity faced war within itself.

 

The story was also shown from the point of view of Marley was quite refreshing and the character also got a new perspective.

 

17. Attack on Titan Season 4 (Part 2)

The final season started with "Judgment" and ended with "The Dawn of Humanity''. It started with the discovery of Levi's body by Hange and Jaegerists.

 

The story continues as Eren started a plan against his enemies with the help of Beast Titan to end the conflict between Eldia and Marley.

 

Meanwhile, Mikasa and Armin remained imprisoned with the former Survey Corps; however, they, later on, got released, saving the soul of their friend.

 

Part 2 Final Season brings a significant evolution to storytelling art. It can be seen through the mission of Eren and the impact it had on the entire world.

 

Character development was also seen through the characters like Jean who got so mature from his rookie days.
