Attack On Titan fans can relax and rejoice in the knowledge that season 2 began production last month and is well under way (According To Christian Post). Since the first season aired over a year ago, fans across the US have rallied around the series, making it by far one of the most popular anime series in the US to date. Many suspect the delay in getting the new season off the ground was that the anime had caught up with the manga and they were waiting for more material to be published.
Whether that is the case or not the creator Hajime Isayama said in a recent interview the manga can expect to continue for about 3-4 more years. With the multiple spin offs of the manga and the expected Levi spin-off, there is plenty of Attack On Titan to go around. Volume 14 of the original manga is set to release in North America in December. Check out the recently released trailer for the new Levi back-story based spin off:
Don’t miss out on our giveaway below after the review. You can enter to win your own copy of Part 2, in Limited Edition format thanks to FUNimation and Three If By Space.
In the mean time FUNimation, who gained the rights to stream and do home video release for the english dub version of Attack On Titan, has just released Part 2 of the first season (Episodes 14-25). We review the Collectors Edition below and tell you whether or not its worth the extra money for the Collectors Edition over the Limited Edition. The Collectors edition at $96 boasts 3 ‘wall banners’ of the 3 walls, and an Exclusive Variant of Good Smile’s Picktam! Strap of Eren. They are not all that great of craftsmanship, but for the $20 difference from the limited edition, hard core fans will enjoy them.
The limited edition version skips those items at a price of $79. When you think about the price of anime these days, $79 is still a bit pricey. Both editions offer the nice Ender Art Box that will fit both part 1 and 2, which makes it worth going with either edition. However, for the money the limited edition is your best buy. Hardcore fans will want the collectors edition as the banners make nice editions to your Figma Attack on Titan collection. If you are on a budget, you can go with the standard edition which dumbs all the extras and gives you straight up blu-ray and dvd disks in a minimal box.
Here is what you should know, both the limited and collectors editions of part 2 come with the following:
- 3-D Lenticular Art Card
- Notes From Beyond the Wall: Part 2 (a 24 page digibook), featuring character
information, interviews, 4 panel comics and more!
- Over 67 minutes of extras, including:
- Episode 14 & 25 Commentaries,
- Attack on Titan at Anime Expo,
- “Chibi Theatre: Fly, Cadets, Fly!” Days 14-25,
- Eyecatch Gallery,
- Textless Songs,
- Also comes with an Ender Art Box designed to hold Parts 1 & 2
- Features: A
- Extras: A
- Price: C
Limited Edition (with box):
- Features: A
- Extras: B
- Price: B
Our recommended buy for Hard Core fans is the Collectors edition. For everyone else go with the limited edition, the nice box is great for holding part 1 and 2, and the art card and digibook are great.
