Crunchyroll announced that it will be bringing all eight Attack on Titan original anime DVD episodes in English dub format to its streaming service beginning on May 8, 2022.
The eight episodes will begin launching on the platform on May 8, and will release weekly until all eight are out. The Attack on Titan OAD episodes were available late last year on Funimation prior to its merge with Crunchyroll, but were only available as subtitled.
Episodes 1-3 of the Attack on Titan OAD episodes will feature Hange attempting to capture their first-ever live Titan, and will also include a look back at the 104th Cadet Corps’ training. Episodes 4 & 5 are based on the Attack on Titan: No Regrets spin-off manga, and highlight the pasts of Captain Levi and Commander Erwin Smith. Finally, episodes 6-8 are based on the Attack on Titan: Lost Girls spin-off novel series, written by the Attack on Titan anime’s screenwriter Hiroshi Seko, which focus on separate stories featuring Annie Leonhart and Mikasa Ackermann.
Attack on Titan began as a manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. It was serialized in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine between September 2009 and April 2021. The first three seasons of the anime television adaptation were produced by Wit Studios and aired between April 2013 and July 2019. While the manga has concluded, the anime is still ongoing.
The Attack on Titan franchise has seen much success since it began in 2009, winning several awards and becoming one of the best-selling manga series of all time. It has spun into other media as well, including video games and a live-action film.
