As the final season of Attack on Titan draws to a close, fans are bracing themselves for an emotional ending to one of the most epic and unforgettable anime series of all time. And now, with the reveal of the last theme song, the anticipation and excitement are reaching fever pitch.
The rock band SiM, who previously provided the electrifying opening theme song “The Rumbling,” is back to give fans one last haunting melody. And the title of this final song is already giving fans chills: “Under the Tree.”
According to SiM, it will be dedicated to one of the series’ most beloved characters, Mikasa Ackerman. The band’s statement reads, “This time, ‘UNDER THE TREE’ is Mikasa’s song.”
The Symbolism of “Under the Tree” in Attack on Titan
Fans of the show will know that Mikasa is not just any character; she is a fierce and complex warrior, with a loyal heart and a tragic past. Her story has touched the hearts of fans around the world, and it’s only fitting that she gets her own theme song to close out the series.
But “Under the Tree” isn’t just a title that sounds cool; it’s a reference to one of the most iconic images in the series. In the very first episode, Eren Jaeger is shown sitting under a tree, watching a bird fly by. It’s a moment that has stuck with fans throughout the series, and has become a symbol of hope and freedom in a world full of despair and darkness.
And with the series coming to an end, it’s likely that this image will have some significance in the final episodes. Whether it’s a callback to the beginning of the series or a new interpretation, fans can expect “Under the Tree” to be a powerful and emotional tribute to Mikasa and her journey.
Of course, the pressure is on for SiM to deliver a theme song that lives up to the expectations of fans. The Rumbling” is already one of the most popular anime tracks of all time, and fans will be expecting nothing less than a haunting and memorable song to close out the series.
But whatever the final song may be, fans can rest assured that Attack on Titan will always be remembered as one of the greatest anime series of all time. And with “Under the Tree” dedicated to Mikasa, it’s sure to be a fitting and emotional farewell to an unforgettable story.
