FUNimation has announced that the currently airing Japanese anime series "Attack on Titan" aka "Shingeki no Kyojin" will get a North American home video release in 2014.
The Japanese anime series called “Attack on Titan” aka “Shingeki no Kyojin” is currently airing in Japan. At the same time, it's being made available online through the streaming service called “Crunchyroll.” FUNimation is also offering streamed episodes of the series on its website. Crunchyroll reports, through an announcement recently made at this year's Anime Central, that FUNimation has secured the license to distribute Attack on Titan to North America via home video.
A home video release of Attack on Titan is scheduled for sometime next year in 2014. That is the first news of a home video release of the anime series; it should be assumed that the cast list will revealed a couple months later for the English-language dubbing. In the meantime, you can look forward to the currently airing series.
Attack on Titan takes place far in the future in which the last remnants of humanity live within a walled city due to almost being wiped out by carnivorous humanoid giants called Titans. Now, the Titans have returned to wreak havoc. The story focuses on Eren Jeager and Mikasa Akerman who are two members of an elite force of soldiers trained to combat them.
