The third season of ‘Attack On Titan‘ premiered at Anime Expo this past weekend, which kinda fucked me up cause I haven’t watched the second season yet (whoops). Either way, the episode revealed the opening theme, which was “Red Swan” by X Japan featuring L’Arc-En-Ciel‘s Hyde. That’s a departure from Linked Horizon, who did the previous three opening themes for the series.
The third season of Attack on Titan will premiere in Japan on July 22 at 24:35 (effectively July 23 at 12:45 a.m.) on NHK (the show will air at 25:15 in the Kansai region). Funimation will screen the premiere in the United States and Canada alongside the Attack on Titan: The Roar of Awakening recap film on July 10-11 in advance of its Japanese premiere. Screenings on Tuesday, July 10 will be in Japanese with English subtitles, while screenings on Wednesday, July 11 will be English-dubbed. Funimation has acquired the home entertainment, video on demand, and broadcast rights of the series in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs, and Funimation will stream an English dub.
I’ve seen a bunch of clickbait videos that don’t actually feature the new opening theme, but none that are legit, unfortunately.
Oh well, just the collab alone sounds like a good idea.
