With Attack on Titan getting pretty much a fast-track release in other territories later this year, it’s not a surprise that we’ll be seeing more information coming up from the North American release by FUNimation soon. And at Katsucon XX this weekend, the distributor announced that they’ll be premiering the dub at Anime Boston on the weekend of March 21st, 2014. The company will be bringing out casting announcements between now and then though, similar to how they did Psycho-Pass in bringing it out in pieces, but they’ve provided a few bits of information about what the dub production is like with the producing crew.
Attack on Titan Crew:
- ADR Director – Mike McFarland
- Head Writer – John Burgmeier
- Script Writers – J. Michael Tatum & Tyson Rinehart (episodes 3, 7, 10)
- ADR Engineer – Kenneth Thompson
Plot concept: 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.
