According to the subreddit r/ShingekiNoKyojin, many anime fans are obsessed with Hitch (Akeno Watanabe and Brittney Karbowski) in Season 4 of Attack on Titan. about how hot Hitch is in Season 4?” In the top-voted comment, u/SwiftOryx commented on the changes to her appearance. “She looks more mature than she has in previous seasons, I can tell that much.”
Fans will recall that Hitch was a background character for much of Attack on Titan, although she occasionally sneaks into the spotlight. She first appears as Annie’s friend in season 1, teasing her about always being tired or late, unaware of Annie’s devastating secret. Later in Season 3, Marlo (Tomokazu Sugita and Todd Haberkorn), who is secretly in love with Hitch, thinks about Hitch in his moments of death.
However, some fans have squinted at Hitch since the first season of the hit anime. In a much older thread, u/HamnetandGold asked if other fans shared her thoughts: “Am I the only one who realizes how hot Hitch is?” But the Fair Maiden Hitch is reserved for Princess Annie.” He clearly hoped that one day Hitch and Annie could become more than just friends.
Of course, the changes to Hitch’s appearance are the result of two different changes throughout the series. The first is the 4-year time jump between Season 3 and Season 4, which makes the character appear significantly older, while the second is the switch between production studios, from Wit Studio to MAPPA (via Anime News Network). It certainly seems that Attack on Titan fans are pleased with the way the character has transformed.
