About Attack On Titan
Based on Hajime Isayama’s New York Times best-selling manga from Kodansha Comics comes the bone-crunching Attack on Titan. Many years ago, humanity was forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that lurked outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scout Regiment dared to stray behind the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive.
Since its debut in 2013, the visceral and dramatic action of Attack on Titan has made it one of the most recognizable names in anime. Funimation celebrated the release of Attack on Titan Final Season by looking back on the franchise’s legacy as A Modern Epic, one of the most exciting shounen series of the last 20 years.
