If you haven't heard of the Japanese anime Attack on Titan yet, you'll be very happy that I'm introducing it to you today. This is seriously one of the funnest and most badass anime series that I've seen in a long time, and it's about to get an English dubbed version. We've included a piece of fan art by goruditai, a trailer, and four awesome clips from the upcoming English dubbed series. Here's a description of the series:
When the man-eating giants called Titans first appeared, humans retreated behind massive walls. After a hundred years of safety, a colossal-sized Titan smashes through the defenses, unleashing a flood of giants and carnage in the streets. Eren Jaeger watches helplessly as one of the creatures devours his mother.
He vows to kill every Titan walking the earth.
Eren and his surviving friends enlist to fight against the insatiable monsters. The future looks bleak, but there's more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity's last hope against extinction. From the director of Death Note and High School of the Dead comes the series Anime News Network calls "an intense, visceral, and graphic thrill ride." The Titans have come to feast. Anything can happen. No one is safe.
The English dubbed version is set to be released on June 6th, 2014, and I'll definitely be picking it up for myself. A second season is in development but won't be released until 2015. I would love to see the series adapted into a live-action feature film. It would be insanely epic!
