Eren Yeager.

“… [Yuki]Kaji looked like Eren was controlling him during the recording session, making it scary for everyone around him. Hosoya is a good voice actor, and I personally grew to love Reiner,” said Omine.

In fact, Kaji himself once claimed that he has never been so invested in delivering Eren’s role until recently. He revealed that he almost lost his voice during recording for the show’s 80th episode.

“This is the episode I couldn’t imagine how to do. This is the episode where I didn’t know what to do. This episode was the one in which I couldn’t see what would happen. This is also the episode I lost my voice more so than any other where I’ve played Eren.”

Director Omine further revealed that even though he knew how to mold the scene during Willy Tybur’s speech, he “struggled to reflect the tension” between Eren and Reiner in episode 64.

“Willy’s speech takes up a large part of the episode, and I think Kazuhiko Inoue did a great job of engaging the audience. Kaji and Hosoya were great actors in the basement conversation, but I struggled with capturing the tension. This episode and the other episodes I directed (episodes 70 and 75), there were many two-sided scenes with Lights and shadows, and I felt I could create impressive scenes that increased the tension.”

The directors had to deal not only with technical problems but also with emotional damage during the creation of some very heartbreaking scenes.

Director Hiroko KomatsuHe recalls being so devastated that he cried while drawing episode 73, when Eren said to Mikasa that he hates them. The bubble of their happy childhood burst abruptly.

After the episode was over, he sketched a happy face to illustrate the ending.

“In episode 73, the scene where Eren tells Mikasa ‘he hates her’ is very impressive. I tried to draw it as carefully and heartfelt as possible since it’s a very important scene in the story. This scene was a memory I had of the three of them growing up. The words they spoke in front me seemed a lie and I felt the tears well up in my eyes. Since I was in charge of drawing this heartbreaking scene, I made a point of drawing a smiling face for the illustration after it was broadcast (laughs).”

Based on the manga Hajime Iseyama, Attack on TitanThe fourth and final season of the series is underway, continuing to surprise viewers with its unique twists. The final season was resumed on January 9, 2022.
