Attack on Titan

 

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?

 

series synopsis:

 

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.

Attack on Titan Part 1 and Part 2 are now available for purchase on Blu-ray/DVD Combo!

synopsis:

Eren Jaeger vowed to rid mankind of the bloodthirsty giants who devoured his mother and destroyed his city. Now, after discovering that he has the ability to turn into a Titan, the world Eren promised to protect looks at him like he is the monster.

Narrowly avoiding execution, Eren’s fate is entrusted to the Scout Regiment where he must prove capable of following orders. But on an expedition outside the wall, a unique female Titan appears and cuts through the Scouts, leaving a trail of carnage and splintered bones behind her and making it difficult for Eren to control his rage. As it becomes obvious that a traitor is sabotaging the Regiment from within, Eren must ask himself who humanity’s true enemy really is. Bloody revelations await beyond the wall in this jaw-dropping series io9.com calls “Japan’s equivalent of The Walking Dead.”

FUNimation adds Ender Box for Attack on Titan Part 2 Limited Edition

AOT part 2 ender box

 

When we unveiled our exclusive Attack on Titan, Part Two Collector’s Edition configuration a little while ago the biggest demand we heard from fans was a request for the Ender Box to also be included in the Limited Edition release. The Ender Box is a hard chipboard box that can house both your Part One and Part Two Limited Edition releases (see image above).

 

Well, you asked and we listened. There are now TWO Attack on Titan, Part Two Limited Edition listings available in our Shop for fans. One will include the Ender Box, for those fans who want the chipboard box to hold their Limited Edition releases, and one without the Ender Box. Please note that the addition of the Ender Box will increase the price of the Limited Edition set slightly. Click here to get Attack on Titan, Part Two PLUS Box.

 

We always strive to provide the best for our fans, and thanks to your feedback, we are pleased that we will now be able to offer you this alternative listing. Attack on Titan, Part Two will be available on Sept. 23rd.
