For this year’s Sapporo Snow Festival, the big centerpiece snow sculpture is Attack on Titan themed.
As far as I know, the only Attack on Titan specialty shop in the entire country is at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka.
There’s a notion that anime (and manga) characters look good in their respective formats because they are so stylized. In real life, this notion goes, they’d look strange. That’s not always true.
The Attack on Titan game has a release window for Japan. It’s heading to the PS Vita, PS3, and PS4 next February. No word yet about its release outside the country.
This evening, the live-action Attack on Titan movie was shown at theaters across North America. Some moviegoers have been waiting for this day. The subtitle screw up, though, they could’ve done without.
The newest Attack on Titan film has earned about half the box office of the previous one in its first two days. Volume 1 racked in 603 million yen (US$5 million), while volume 2 earned 327 million yen ($2.7 million). The number of moviegoers, obviously, also halved. Here is Kotaku’s review of the most recent film.
Here’s a pretty unique Attack on Titan clip from Taiwanese animator Jordan Tseng. It’s a mix of stop-motion and CGI animation, with a Mikasa figure fighting wooden mannequins behind the walls of the human kingdom.
I had hopes! Big hopes! There was potential, I thought, and maybe, just maybe, the filmmakers were going to show me up as an idiot by delivering a first-rate, smart Attack on Titan sequel. I was wrong. They did not.
Making adaptations is tricky! Fans get upset if things are different. Koei Tecmo has a workaround: Don’t change stuff! At least, in the first game.
Koei Tecmo, best known for Dead or Alive and Dynasty Warriors, is making an Attack on Titan game. We know this! But we haven’t really seen much of the game itself, and now, we get a teeny-tiny peek at that.
I don’t know why I expected otherwise...
The Attack on Titan live-action movie isn’t very good. That doesn’t mean it’s not making lots of money. Funny, that.
Announced last week, Koei Tecmo is making an Attack on Titan game. It’s being developed by Omega-Force, the developers of all the Dynasty Warriors games. But it won’t be a Warriors game. And they want you to know that.
The Attack on Titan live action movie is not very good. It stinks. And the manga’s creator, Hajime Isayama, wants to understand the reaction to the picture.
It looks like a Warriors game, but the other way around; you’re one of hundreds of peons against an unstoppable force – a titan, as it were.
Attack on Titan, of course, is a massively successful—and popular—manga and anime series. This live-action entry is the Japanese film industry’s latest attempt to parlay manga and anime into cinema. Parlay? Sorry, plunder would be more fitting here.
Parody manga Attack on Titan: Junior High is getting an anime series. Hope you like giant eyes! (Oh, and giant Titans.)
Levi, one of Attack on Titan’s most beloved characters, is not in the new live-action movie. There must be a reason for that. Turns out, there is.
