A recent report from ComicBook indicated that "Attack on Titan" season 2 will be broadcasted by Funimation in the United States and Canada next year. This is after it is released in Japan in April 2017. The report also stated that an English dub and sub will be made by Crunchyroll to their respective websites when the showing of season 2 gets underway.
A Possible New Arc Will Be Introduced
The simulcast is a part of the agreement between the two companies in order to expand the showing of "Attack on Titan" season 2. With this arrangement, fans of the show will be able to watch and enjoy the online simulcast as they were able to do before. A possible new arc will also be introduced in season 2 of the anime series.
In this connection, a separate report also indicated that the possible new arc in "Attack on Titan" season 2 will feature a clash between mysticism and science. This will apparently be induced by the discovery of the experimental existence of the Titans. However, there are still no definitive details that have been disclosed by the show creators in this regard.
There Will Be More Than 20 Episodes In Season 2
The news that Funimation will bring "Attack on Titan" season 2 in the United States and Canada will come as a welcome surprise to avid fans who have been waiting for the release of the sequel for many months now. It has previously aired all the 25 episodes of season 1. The company also released a home video based on the show as well.
Although the release of "Attack on Titan" season 2 is already confirmed, no details have been revealed about the exact date it will be launched in 2017. At least fans of the show now know that it will be aired next April. But when the show starts running next year, fans can expect more high flying action and excitement with more than 20 episodes that will be shown.
