Kodansha began streaming a promotional video for the second and final anime episode of the spinoff manga Attack on Titan: No Regrets (Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku) on Thursday.

Erwin: My name is Erwin Smith. How about doing a trade with me?
Levi: Trade?
Erwin: I won't go any further into your crimes, so enter the Survey Corps.
Text: The spin-off story that illustrates the meeting between Levi and Erwin.
Levi: Fine. I'll enter the Survey Corps.
Man: We're starting the 23rd survey outside the wall!
All: Yeah!
Text: Levi entered the Survey Corps as per Erwin's invitation
Nicholas: There are two things I'm going to have you do. First, is to obtain a certain document. Secondly, to the Survey Corps section commander Erwin Smith...
Farlan: We'll use the survey outside the wall.
Levi: Just you wait... Erwin Smith...! I'll kill you with these two hands!!
Text: His first time on the surface, and his first invading titans.
Text: The three put their life on the lines fighting against the titans that attack with no end in sight.
Text: A cruel fate was waiting for them...
Isabel: We're counting on you, boss! Get that surface residence ticket for us!
Farlan: Levi, we believe in you.
Erwin: The memories of regret will cloud your judgement for your next decision. All that's left for you then is to die.
Levi: I just don't know. It's always been like that. Even if I believe in my power... Even if I believe in my allies' decisions... The result is... No one...

The new anime is coming on two new original animation DVDs that are bundled with the 15th and 16th volumes of the main manga on December 9, 2014 and April 9, 2015, respectively.

Artist Hikaru Suruga and writer Gan Sunaaku launched this spinoff manga in Kodansha's Aria magazine in fall 2013, and Kodansha Comics is publishing it in North America. Kodansha Comics describes the story:

This prequel to megahit Attack on Titan answers the questions: How did Captain Levi of the Survey Corps go from street tough to humanity's strongest soldier? And how did Commander Erwin become a cold, calculating leader, ready to sacrifice anything to save the human race? The fires that forged this bond of loyalty and trust were intense indeed!

The staff and cast from 2013's Attack on Titan television anime series are returning for these original animation DVDs:

  • Director: Tetsuro Araki
  • Series Composition: Yasuko Kobayashi
  • Character Design: Kyoji Asano
  • Animation Production: Wit Studio

  • Hiroshi Kamiya as Levi
  • Daisuke Ono as Erwin

Joining the cast are Koji Yusa (Zettai Karen Children, Black Butler) and Mariya Ise (Yes! Precure 5, Hunter × Hunter) as Farlan and Isabel, respectively.
