Hey, anime fans! My name is L.B. and I’ve been tasked with filling you in on just some of the hottest anime news to hit the wires each and every day.
Anime Expo is proving to be THE place to be this summer. It’s not enough that they are hosting the world premiere of Overlord Season 3 dub but earlier today it was announced on their official website that they are also hosting the world premiere of Attack on Titan Season 3 ahead of its July 22nd air date! Yes, you may commence your excited squees now (provided that you actually plan on attending the event, to begin with). Not only that but both Bryce Papenbrook and Yuki Kaji will be in attendance for the screening.
The screening will take place on Sunday, July 8th at 11:30 AM in Hall B of the LA Convention Center.
Not planning on attending Anime Expo this summer? That’s alright because Funimation has already announced that they will be doing a nationwide theatrical screening of the season 2 recap movie AND showing the first episode of the third season.
For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last few years, Attack on Titan is an intense, dramatic thrill ride filled with danger, blood, and violence around every single corner. The first volume of the manga hit store shelves in Japan way back in 2010 before being released in English by Kodansha in 2012.
Kodansha describes the story as:
A century ago, the grotesque giants known as Titans appeared and consumed all but a few thousand humans. The survivors took refuge behind giant walls. Today, the threat of the Titans is a distant memory, and a boy named Eren yearns to explore the world beyond Wall Maria. But what began as a childish dream will become an all-too-real nightmare when the Titans return and humanity is once again on the brink of extinction.
