In just over a week, anime fans better be ready to fight off another round of Titans. Thanks to Wit Studio, Attack on Titan will make its long-awaited comeback when its second season debuts. The series is set to return on April 1st, and fans are already gearing up for what will be a bloody, political season.
However, for recent anime fans, they may be a bit confused as to where they can watch Attack on Titan. The show will air regularly in Japan with a set schedule but watching Attack on Titan - or any anime - abroad isn’t so easy.
Here at ComicBook, we want to make it so; There is no need to go hunting for illicit streams when several sites offer the officially subbed and dubbed episodes.
For U.S. fans, you will want to look up Funimation for all your Attack on Titan needs. The western publisher secured streaming rights to the franchise and announced plans to roll out the show on its website. Starting April 1st, the company will simulcast Attack on Titan’s new season with no delay. Funimation has also said the show will be given a special simuldub treat, meaning it will be rerecording into English on a slight delay. Those videos will also be found on Funimation’s streaming service, Funimation Now.
Another streaming source is through AnimeLab. The site is geared towards viewers in Australia and New Zealand where Madman oversees its library. The site announced it would also be streaming Attack on Titan’s new season in the same fashion as Funimation.
At this moment, Crunchyroll has not confirmed whether they will host Attack on Titan’s new season as a simulcast. The site currently has the first full season available and acquired it as a simulcast. Recently, the website signed off on a partnership with Funimation to share library titles, so Cruchyroll made soon get the show on a delay.
There is also no word on whether Hulu or Netflix will get the show. The former has gotten anime in incremental bits before given Hulu’s work with Viz Media. As for Netflix, the U.S. version will not likely get the second season until it has fully aired; The Japanese version is set to get non-subbed episodes of the new season with a one-day delay.
The synopsis for Attack on Titan's new season can be read below:
“Eren Jaeger swore to wipe out every last Titan, but in a battle for his life he wound up becoming the thing he hates most. With his new powers, he fights for humanity's freedom facing the monsters that threaten his home. After a bittersweet victory against the Female Titan, Eren finds no time to rest—a horde of Titans is approaching Wall Rose and the battle for humanity continues!”
Attack on Titan Season 2 will debut on April 1, 2017.
