Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 Anime’s Sub Delayed to Wednesdays Worldwide

FUNimation Entertainment has announced that the English-subtitled simulcast of the second part of the Attack on Titan Season 3 television anime will be delayed beginning with episode 54, which will launch on May 29, 2019 on FunimationNow, Hulu, Crunchyroll, and through all other sublicensees worldwide. New episodes will be delayed from Sundays at 1:35 p.m. EDT to Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

The company explained that sublicensees leaked new episodes for two weeks in a row in two territories before the premieres in Japan. The licensor decided to give show materials to FUNimation after the premieres of upcoming episodes in order to prevent further leaks. Therefore, new episodes will be delayed to Wednesdays “to provide enough time for each company to work on subtitles and quality control, and make sure that all territories can launch at the same time.”

FUNimation clarified that the delay will not affect the simuldub, which will debut on May 26, 2019. The series will also debut on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block on May 25, 2019.
