Anime of Hajime Isayama's acclaimed battle manga to debut on Saturday

Anime production company Pony Canyon began streaming the second promotional video for the Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) television series on Sunday.

Hajime Isayama's original manga depicts the battles between humans and the giants who now rule the world outside humans' walled enclaves. Isayama launched the series in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009. The manga has become a sleeper hit, and Kodansha USA is publishing it for North America.

The video lists the cast:

Director Tetsuro Araki (Death Note, Highschool of the Dead, Guilty Crown), head writer Yasuko Kobayashi (Shakugan no Shana, Claymore, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), character designer Kyoji Asano (Psycho-Pass, Tokyo Marble Chocolate), and Wit Studio (in cooperation with Production I.G) are working on Attack on Titan.

Hiroyuki Sawano (Blue Exorcist, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings) is composing the music. Sound Horizon is contributing the opening theme under the name "Linked Horizon," while Yōko Hikasa is contributing the ending theme "Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai."

The series will premiere in the Kansai region's MBS station on Saturday.
