posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Funimation announced on Friday that it received an update from its licensor of Attack on Titan, and will stream subtitled episodes of the second part of the Attack on Titan Season 3 anime on Sundays at 9:45 p.m. EDT starting this Sunday.
Funimation had stated on Thursday that it would delay the episodes worldwide from Sundays at 1:35 p.m. EDT to Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m. EDT. Funimation explained that sublicensees leaked new episodes for two weeks in a row in two territories before the premieres in Japan. The licensor then decided to give show materials to Funimation after the premieres of upcoming episodes in order to prevent further leaks.
The anime premiered in Japan on the NHK General channel on April 28. The second half of the third season will air for a total of 10 episodes (episodes 50-59). Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu are streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
