It doesn’t come as a surprise that Attack on Titan would be licensed, dubbed, and released in America. However, who would have guessed that an official license for the series would be confirmed this quickly?
AoT started broadcasting in Japan on April 6, 2013. While the series consists of 25 episodes, it’s currently ongoing. Yet, in less than 2 months from its official broadcast, FUNimation announced that they’ve licensed the home video rights for AoT and plans to release it sometime next year.
It didn’t take long for AoT to grab the attention of FUNimation. Fortunately for them, they responded quickly enough in order to start licensing it and putting plans into motion. This also gives them time to host auditions and choose voice actors for the series.
