You heard that right folks! According to Funimation, they will be streaming the show live from Japan dubbed in English (new episodes of My Hero Academia and DBZ: Super will also be a part the Sinulcast). Personally I am not a fan of anything dubbed. To me an English accent doesn’t fit all anime characters persona at all, with the exception of Cowboy Bebop. At any rate I do understand other people’s plight when it comes to favoring dubbed over subbed. Not everyone can read and pay attention to what’s going at the same time. Some people can’t even focus on an anime of it’s not in English. That’s where simulcast comes in to save the day!
The Simulcast by Funimation is slated to be released the same time as the first AOT season 2 episode which is April 1st. To watch the simulcast you would need to sign up for the service with Funimation. Now here’s the kicker, it will be streamed with advertisements. The ad-free stream, however, will cost you only 6 bucks. Not a bad deal i must say, but I will stick to my fan made subs thank you very much.
Attack on Titan Season 2 will finally debut April 1st. You can get a taste of what’s to come with the trailer below.
