When Is Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3’s Ending? Crunchyroll & Hulu Updates

Attack on Titan

Don't even think about sharing this article.

Attack on Titan is almost here, and the main U.S. streaming platforms have been very quiet as of the time of this article’s publication. Here’s everything we know so far about what time Season 4 Part 3 (the first half of Attack on Titan’s ending, sometimes referred to as Season 5) will be airing and when you should start keeping an eye on Crunchyroll and Hulu. We’re providing a window to watch out for, based on what’s been released in Japan and other sources. 

[March 3, 2:20 p.m. CST update: Crunchyroll still has not gotten back to us after the initial message that they didn’t have an official word yet. Hulu has provided an update below that’s at the end of this article. The episode has aired in Japan. The information below still comprises our best estimate of when it will likely air and where to watch, but we will keep this post updated.]

[NEWEST UPDATE: It’s airing at 6 p.m. Eastern on Hulu and hopefully the same time on Crunchyroll. More details below.]

Here’s When Attack on Titan’s Ending Airs in Japan

First, let’s start out with what we definitively know. 

Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3 Part 1 (the one-hour “movie” episode) premieres on TV in Japan on NHK on Friday, March 3, at 24:25 (aka 12:25 a.m Japan time), according to the official website. But here’s the deal… The official website appears to be using Friday, March 3 a bit loosely in that it is technically airing late night on Friday March 3 in Japan and early morning on Saturday, March 4.

That’s because this is what the website lists for Attack on Titan’s premiere:

If you catch that, it’s saying Saturday, March 4 at 12:25 a.m. (rather than the March 3 time listed on the site.) 

This is important because of the time zone difference between Japan and the U.S. Technically, 12:25 a.m. JST on March 3 would have coincided with March 2 in the U.S. Obviously it’s not out yet when this article was published.

A 12:25 a.m. JST March 4 air time in Japan coincides with a 9:25 a.m. CST air time on March 3 in the U.S. 

So When Is Attack on Titan S4 Part 3 Airing on Crunchyroll & Hulu?

UPDATE: Attack on Titan is airing on Hulu at 6 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Central. Hopefully the same time on Crunchyroll. 



We know that the English subbed episodes air roughly on the same day that they air in Japan, just a few hours later. Back when Season 4 Part 2 aired, for example, a new episode would drop at around midnight in Japan (technically on Mondays Japan time) and then it would air a little later in the U.S. on Sundays. 

For Season 4 Part 2, as we previously reported, episodes would drop at 12:10 a.m. JST and then they would air in the U.S. on Crunchyroll and Hulu at 3:45 p.m. Eastern, on a short delay.

Interestingly, MAPPA’s Chainsaw Man had a shorter delay between when it dropped in Japan vs when it dropped on Crunchyroll in the U.S. Chainsaw Man dropped at midnight in Japan and then the English sub aired on Crunchyroll and Hulu at 12 p.m. Eastern. 

Post Apocalyptic Media reached out to Crunchyroll, who let us know that at this time, they still don’t have official word on what time the episode will drop on their streaming platform. Hulu did not reply to a request, but its press schedule for March does not currently list a time. (It also doesn’t list Attack on Titan at all, but there’s no reason to believe Hulu won’t get the show just like it has for every previous season.) 

So the best we can do is offer a possible window of times when you should keep an eye out on the streaming services. 

In terms of U.S. time, the hour-long episode will be live on Friday, March 3 by 9:25 a.m. Central/10:25 a.m. Eastern/8:25 a.m. Mountain/7:25 a.m. Pacific. However, this is not necessarily when it will be live on Crunchyroll and Hulu. 

If the episode has the same delay that it had for previous seasons, we can expect the English sub around 4 p.m. Eastern on Crunchyroll and Hulu. But if the episode has a shorter delay like we enjoyed for Chainsaw Man’s latest season, then it would be dropping around 12:45 p.m. Eastern/11:45 a.m. Central/10:45 a.m. Mountain/9:45 a.m. Pacific on Crunchyroll and Hulu. 

If you prefer a video explanation, here’s a short one in less than 2 minutes.

So basically, at this time, the best we can advise is to start keeping an eye on Crunchyroll and Hulu beginning around 10:25 a.m. Eastern on Friday, March 3, but knowing it could be as late as 4 p.m. Eastern before we see it, if the streaming platforms follow previous patterns. 

Hulu has a free trial you can take part in if you want to keep an eye out for the episode that way.

Note that there have also been rumors that it will release in 3 episodes on the same day on Crunchyroll (and ostensibly on Hulu too). According to NHK, the first episode is 62 minutes long. 

Hulu’s Update

Hulu Support on Twitter is indicating that the sub won’t be out until tomorrow, although that doesn’t track with when the sub has been released previously. 

They wrote that they “typically receive new subbed episodes the day after they air…” However, with Attack on Titan they received them much sooner than that, so I’m not really sure how to interpret this tweet. 

We’ll update this article if we get an update from Crunchyroll or Hulu.
