Madman Acquires Attack On TitanJul 30th 2013
New Episodes Streaming Weekly On The Madman Screening Room
One of the most highly anticipated releases of the year, Madman is proud to announce the local premiere of Attack on Titan – now streaming Mondays on www.madman.com.au/screeningroom.
Several hundred years ago, humanity was very nearly wiped from the Earth as they were hunted down by giant creatures known as Titans – beasts several stories tall who devour human beings for pleasure. The humans erected giant walls around their cities, which kept them safe until a colossal Titan – larger than any they've seen before - appears out of thin air and destroys their defences. When this destruction leads to the death of his mother, Eren Jaeger swears vengeance and an undying vow to hunt down and kill all Titans.
With its blistering action, relentless pacing and unpredictable storyline, the 25-episode post-apocalyptic series - which is animated by newcomers Wit Studio and helmed by the director of Death Note and High School of the Dead - has become THE hottest anime property across the globe.
Episodes 1-4 are available to view for free now on www.madman.com.au/screeningroom – with new double episodes being added each Monday.
Attack on Titan will release to home and digital formats in 2014.
