On January 9, the popular anime launches in 200 countries, subtitled in eight languages, on Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu.
Ahead of Funimation’s “Attack on Titan Final Season Panel,” at the Anime NYC convention, it was announced that the epic continuation of the hit anime will begin streaming on January 9, 2022. Also launching on Crunchyroll and Hulu, the series will be available in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, subtitled in eight languages.
Based on the best-selling manga series, the award-winning anime franchise was created by Hajime Isayama; the series is currently produced by MAPPA (Banana Fish; Jujutsu Kaisen; Zombie Land Saga) and licensed from Kodansha (AKIRA; Fairy Tail; Fire Force; That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime).
In the show, many years ago, humanity was forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that lurked outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scout Regiment dared to stray behind the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive.
In the epic continuation, the lines between friends and enemies become even more blurred. The War for Paradis explodes in Shiganshina and as battle rages on, the true intentions of the masterminds behind the current state of the world become clear.
