Attack on Titan's English Dub Isn't Half Bad

I actually dreaded hearing Attack on Titan in English more than I fear actual titans. Now I just fear titans.

For me, Attack on Titan is one of those series that I really like, but don't know why. FUNimation, the North American anime distributor, is releasing the series in the US with a new English dub, to premiere at the Anime Boston convention starting tomorrow.

FUNimationhas released clips of the new dub and while I'm a sub man myself, they don't sound half bad.

Take a look at the released clips and compare them with the original Japanese versions to decide for yourself.
