FUNimation has announced that the Attack on Titan dub will make its official premiere at Anime Boston next month. The hugely successful franchise has garnered fans across the world outside of Japan, so it’s no surprise that the anime is finally getting an English-language release. The manga is already being published in English by Kodansha Comics in North America and Europe.
Although the names of the voice actors and their roles haven’t been made public yet, FUNimation has given the public a glimpse at the crew behind the English release. They are as follows:
ADR Director – Mike McFarland
Head Writer – John Burgmeier
Script Writers – J. Michael Tatum & Tyson Rinehart (episodes 3, 7, 10)
ADR Engineer – Kenneth Thompson
More announcements will be rolled out in increments leading up to Anime Boston, which runs March 21 – 23. Attack on Titan (also known as Shingeki no Kyojin) is an ongoing manga series by Hajime Isayama that details mankind’s battle for survival against giant, bloodthirsty humanoid creatures known as Titans. The manga series has been adapted into a very successful anime series and several games, such as Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind for the 3DS.
