Catch ‘Attack on Titan’ season 1 in theaters before the season 2 premiere
Fortunately, there’s an efficient solution to this problem. You can watch a condensed version of the show in theaters, with a squad of other anime fans.
Funimation edited the 25 existing episodes into two 120-minute movies, screening at selected theaters on March 27 and 28. For most TV shows, this would be a horrible idea. But it may work out okay for Attack on Titan, which includes a lot of filler in each 20 minute episode. We still recommend watching the whole series, but this is a fun way to jog your memory if you haven’t watched in a while.
You can buy tickets from Funimation for 19 screening locations around the U.S. The movies are unrated, but Attack on Titan‘s post-apocalyptic gore will probably be even more disturbing on the big screen. You have been warned.
