US manga localization titans Kodansha have just announced they’ve made arrangements for Hajime Isayama, creator of Attack On Titan, to make his first public appearance in the US. He waited until he’d finished the entire series to do this, but better late than never, right?
Attack On Titan
A lot of horror icons have appeared in Dead By Daylight, but we didn’t really expect to see Attack On Titan stuff ever appear in the game. Is AoT horror? It can be at times, as the Titans aren’t pleasant to look at or deal with, but we would classify it as more of an action drama. Nevertheless, here it is.
Attack on Titan collaborates with Behavior Interactive for a crossover. There are fans who wants to see Anime titles in Dead By Daylight. Most of the Licensed characters are from movies, TV,Books and Video Games. Some fans an Anime collaboration is impossible with Dead by Daylight because of Artstyle differences. Dead by Daylight uses a photo-realistic art style and the Anime Aesthetics may not translate well. Well things may change after this collaboration. Unfortunately, This not going to be a Chapter.
One of the weirder projects we’ve run across is a tribute to Attack On Titan from the Prescription For Sleep series. This series, created by music producers Scarlet Moon, has eleven installments so far, each one reinterpreting the soundtrack of a popular video game as smooth jazzy music to fall asleep to. The next album in the series, announced last month, pivoted to anime and picked a subject about as far from relaxing as you can get.
Looks like we called that one. When Crunchyroll released a trailer for the “finale episode” of Attack On Titan last week, we wondered why they weren’t making a bigger deal out of it, or avoiding the words “series finale.” We suspected an announcement was coming at the end of that episode, and we were correct. There will be an Attack On Titan: Final Season Part 3.
Crunchyroll sent us the promo materials for next Sunday’s episode of Attack On Titan today, complete with a video teaser. It’s that teaser that reveals something curious: the episode (number 87 if you’re counting) is referred to as a “Finale.”
When you think of Attack On Titan, none of the images that come to mind come across as “relaxing.” If you were trying to sleep, watching an episode full of widely grinning naked giants trampling and eating people might not be very effective at putting you out. But that hasn’t stopped Scarlet Moon from basing the twelfth album in their Prescription For Sleep series on the property.
Attack On Titan is running though its final episode run as we speak, but up to this point it’s been exclusively the sub version of the show. Anime purists would say “who cares.” Toonami would say “we do, we had to run on fumes all December.”
Attack On Titan’s FINAL final season is just starting this month, but the first half of the season (which premiered last year) is finally making its way to physical home formats. The Blu-Ray set for Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part 1 was announced this morning for a February release.
After a full decade, one of the more successful manga and anime properties in recent history is finally wrapping it up. Attack On Titan will premiere the first of its final batch of episodes this coming Sunday, both in Japan and in the US courtesy of Funimation.
As you know, Attack On Titan will be running its VERY LAST episodes, like EVER, this coming January. But there’s actually more than that. In Japan, eight bonus episodes were created for the OAD market (that’s Original Animation DVD (and that’s what they call Original Animation Video now)). Funi says they’re on the way here as well, and quicker than usual…they’re hitting the app this very Sunday.
It’s sure taking Attack On Titan a long time to end, isn’t it? Something called “The Final Season” began streaming on Funimation last year, but after those episodes were finished, the series wasn’t over….turns out we only got a half-season, and the rest of it would take another year to produce.
