New Attack on Titan Season 3 Video Previews YOSHIKI Featuring HYDE's Opening Theme

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Crunchyroll also reveals streaming debut date, territories

X Japan member YOSHIKI revealed on Twitter and Instagram on Friday that the opening theme song "Red Swan" for Attack on Titan season three is now credited to "YOSHIKI featuring HYDE" instead of "X Japan featuring HYDE" as previously announced. The social media post also included a video featuring a clip from the song and animated footage from the television series.

Crunchyroll also announced on Friday that it will stream the series starting on July 22 at 2 p.m. EDT, for audiences in the same territories that the site streamed the show's second season.

Funimation has acquired the home entertainment, video on demand, and broadcast rights of the series in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu will stream the series as it airs, and Funimation will stream an English dub. Adult Swim's Toonami block will air the series starting on August 18.

The new season will premiere in Japan on July 22 at 24:35 (effectively July 23 at 12:45 a.m.) on NHK (the show will air at 25:15 in the Kansai region).

The season already had its world premiere at Anime Expo on July 8, and Funimation screened the first episode with both English subtitles and the English dub in the United States and Canada last week.

Returning staff members at Wit Studio include: chief director Tetsuro Araki, director Masashi Koizuka, script supervisor Yasuko Kobayashi, character designer Kyoji Asano, assistant director Hiroyuki Tanaka, chief animation directors Kyoji Asano and Satoshi Kadowaki, and composer Hiroyuki Sawano, among others.
