Attack on Titan fans, the anime is back, and it has already introduced fans to a creator more terrifying than the Colossal Titan. The second season of Attack on Titan debuted last Saturday, and the premiere episode brought along the Beast Titan to scare fans into submission. The massive creature left a fan-favorite character to die a horribly gruesome death, and the Survey Corps weren’t given time to mourn the loss before a breach in Wall Rose flooded the area with rogue Titans. This week, Attack on Titan will return with its second episode, and fans are interested to see how the series will move forward.
However, not every anime lover will be tuning into the release. For some, they are waiting perhaps impatiently for Attack on Titan to get an English dub before they start watching, but the wait is a painful one. The Internet is not afraid of spoilers, and blacklisting tags on social media can only get you so far. Many dub-diehards are waiting for Funimation to roll out the rerecorded episodes, but they won’t have to wait too much longer.
The English dub of Attack on Titan is being handled by Funimation, and it will received a SimulDub on delay. The studio will offer the service on its Funimation NOW streaming service for on-demand viewing, but traditional cable will also give fans a chance to watch the dubbed take on Attack on Titan. Toonami announced that it would premiere the English dubbed version of the anime on April 22nd, moving it up a week from a previously reported date.
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!”
