It’s the end of the year as we know it! Let’s take a look at some of the top FUNimation streaming shows of 2014.
First up, and this should come as no surprise to anyone, Attack on Titan! And before you protest and say “Hey, Attack on Titan simulcasted in 2013!” we started to roll out the English dubbed episodes in 2014 in conjunction with the television broadcast on Toonami–so, it still counts!
We’ve been describing this show as the Walking Dead of the anime world. If you’ve seen the show, then you know why. If you haven’t seen the show, where have you been?
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.
