Attack On Titan is based on the Japanese manga series, of the same name, created by Hajime Isayama. The anime first released in 2013 has since become one of the most popular anime series of all time. It has become a pop culture phenomenon and even help popularize anime in the 2010s for casual audiences, with fans comparing the series to Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, and Game Of Thrones. The series is set in a world that is infested by man-eating humanoid monsters called Titans that threaten all of humanity.

The series focuses on Eren Yaeger who joined the Survey Corps after the tragic death of his mother at the hands of a Titan. The Survey Corps is a special military unit whose sole purpose is to protect humanity and liberate the world from Titans. Eren’s original goal was to wipe out all of the Titans until he finds out that he has Titan powers of his own and that Titans are actually humans. The discovery, the political corruption, and another nation whose purpose is to wipe out his people, greatly altered Eren’s outlook and perspective.

Now instead of being a beacon of hope for humanity, Eren has become the very threat and monster the world has feared. Now, these eight episodes take place before and between the first three seasons of the hit anime series. The episodes will release stateside with the subtitled versions first, and finally with the dubbed versions coming in 2022. The special Attack on Titan OAD Episodes will begin streaming on December 19, 2021, on Crunchyroll.
