Crunchyroll Adds Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 Anime (Update)
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the second part of the Attack on Titan Season 3 television anime as part of its spring streaming lineup. The series will be available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Central America, South America, the Caribbean; and in the Nordics and the Netherlands for paid members. Crunchyroll began streaming the same English-subtitled trailer for the anime that Funimation debuted in February.
Crunchyroll describes the anime:
The battle to retake Wall Maria begins now! With Eren's new hardening ability, the Scouts are confident they can seal the wall and take back Shiganshina District. If they succeed, Eren can finally unlock the secrets of the basement—and the world. But danger lies in wait as Reiner, Bertholdt, and the Beast Titan have plans of their own. Could this be humanity's final battle for survival?
The anime will debut in Japan on the NHK General channel on April 28 at 24:10 (effectively April 29 at 12:10 a.m.). The second half of the third season will air for a total of 10 episodes (episodes 50-59). The anime will stream on FunimationNow this spring.
Funimation has acquired the home entertainment, video on demand, and broadcast rights of the series in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu streamed the first part of the third season as it aired, and Funimation streamed an English dub. Adult Swim's Toonami block aired the series beginning last August.
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.
Crunchyroll and the VRV bundle streaming service have also re-added the first seasons of Attack on Titan, Overlord, and My Hero Academia to their catalogs. ANN reached out to Crunchyroll for comment about the seasons returning to the service, but the company did not respond by press time.
Update: Funimation revealed that the second part of Attack on Titan Season 3 will also debut on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block on May 25. The simulcast version will launch on FunimationNow on April 28 at 1:35 p.m. EDT, and the simuldub will debut on May 26. Thanks, 3ngag3. Source: Funimation's Twitter account
