Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime series, with millions of fans all around the world. The final season of Attack on Titan is currently airing, and the hype of this anime is absolutely insane! I believe that every fan of the seinen, shounen and psychological genres should give it a shot. Below, I have compiled a list of the 5 best places where you can watch Attack on Titan. I will also tell you guys where you can find and purchase the Blu-Ray sets of all the different seasons of this anime.
Please note: I am only going to mention all the legal viewing options, so you will have to pay for a better experience.
About the Anime:
The story of Attack on Titan takes place in an alternate universe in which mindless beings called the titans exist. These ruthless titans love to eat the flesh of humans! These creatures are extremely powerful, and they have sent humanity to the brink of extinction. The remaining humans live inside colossal walls in order to protect themselves from the titans.
We follow the story of a boy named Eren, whose ultimate dream is to go outside the walls and discover the vast and amazing world. One day, the titans somehow manage to break the gate of one of the walls that protect the humans. The titans quickly begin to attack innocent human beings, and Eren’s mother gets eaten by a titan in front of his very eyes. The boy swears that he will exterminate all of the titans in the entire world.
Crunchyroll is probably the best platform for all the fans who prefer to watch the original Japanese version with English subtitles. The best thing about this platform is that you can also watch your favorite anime for absolutely free. However, you won’t be able to watch the latest episode of any anime, and you will have to deal with ads. All the episodes of different anime and J-dramas get uploaded onto the platform just an hour after they get aired in Japan. Sadly, this platform does not have English Dubbed anime, depending on your region.
Price: 7.99-14.99 USD per month
Funimation is the direct rival of Crunchyroll, and it also contains a huge library of thousands of anime. Some people prefer Funimation over Crunchyroll because this streaming platform also releases the dubbed versions of all the popular anime. All the seasons of Attack on Titan are available here with English dubbing! Even three episodes of the latest season are now available in English on the platform. Oh, and just like Crunchyroll, you can enjoy your favorite shows for free if you don’t mind annoying ads.
Price: 5.99-7.99 USD per month or 99.99 per year
Unlike the previous two entries on my list, Hulu does not just exclusively focus on anime series. On Hulu, you can watch all kinds of anime, dramas and movies from all around the world. However, the list of anime available on the platform is not really that vast. Luckily, all the seasons of Attack on Titan are available on the platform in English and Japanese.
There are different paid plans available on the platform, and after you sign up, the first month will be absolutely free.
Price: 5.99-54.99 USD per month
Who doesn’t know Netflix? Netflix is currently one of the most popular, if not the most popular streaming platform in the entire world. Just like Hulu, you can watch all types of dramas, anime and movies on Netflix. The list of licensed anime on Netflix is not really as big as Crunchyroll and Funimation, but it still contains more titles as compared to Hulu. All the seasons of Attack on Titan are available on Netflix in English and Japanese.
You can choose between three different subscription plans, and you will get charged by the platform on a monthly basis. After you sign up for the first time, Netflix will not charge you anything for the entire first month.
Price: 8.99-15.99 USD per month
5. Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime is the only platform on my list that allows you to buy the individual seasons of Attack on Titan. If you don’t want to pay for any special subscriptions, then you can just go on Amazon Prime and pay to watch only Attack on Titan. Sadly, the latest season of Attack on Titan is not currently available on the platform, but you can watch all the previous seasons in Japanese or with English dubbing.
Price: Different for every season. The average price of a complete season is 20 USD.
If you are a real fan of the series, then you will probably not feel satisfied after watching the TV version of Attack on Titan. We all know that Blu-Ray is way better than the TV version because it lets us experience our show in the best way possible.
If you want to purchase the Blu-Ray disk sets for the first three seasons of Attack on Titan, then you should head to www.Amazon.com. The Blu-Ray sets are reasonably priced, and they can be purchased quite easily.
