Spanish anime streaming service Selecta Visión lists both the Attack on Titan: Junior High and One-Punch Man TV anime series with 12 episodes.

Attack on Titan: Junior High will premiere on MBS on Saturday, October 3 at 25:58 (effectively Sunday, October 4 at 1:58 a.m.). The series will also air on Tokyo MX , BS11, RKK, and SBS.

Saki Nakagawa's original Attack on Titan: Junior High manga re-imagines Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other characters from the original manga as students and teachers at Titan Junior High School. The cast members from the original Attack on Titan anime are returning.

Yoshihide Ibata (Ashiaraiyashiki no Jūnin-tachi, episode director for Kill la Kill, Haikyu!!) is directing the series at Production I.G. Midori Gotou (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, Genshiken: Second Generation) is handling the series composition, Yuuko Yahiro (Diabolik Lovers, B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time) is the character designer, and Asami Tachibana (Haikyu!!, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, Robotics;Notes) is composing the music.

Linked Horizon (Attack on Titan's two opening themes) will perform the show's opening theme song "Seishun wa Hanabi no Yō ni" (Youth is Like Fireworks).

One-Punch Man will premiere in Japan on TV Tokyo and Niconico Live on Sunday, October 4 at 25:05 (effectively, Monday, October 5 at 1:05 a.m.). The series will then air on TV Osaka, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting Co., Ltd. Kyoto Broadcasting (KBS), and BS Japan.

The original manga's story revolves around the titular super hero (played by Makoto Furukawa) who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.

Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) is directing the anime at Madhouse (Summer Wars, Hunter x Hunter), and Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny scripts, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary) is in charge of the series scripts. Makoto Miyazaki (Dragon Crisis!, Triage X) is composing the music. Chikashi Kubota (From the New World, Robotics;Notes) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Shigemi Ikeda and Yukiko Maruyama are the art directors, and Ken Hashimoto is the color key artist. Akane Fushihara is the director of photography, while Kashiko Kimura is editing. Shoji Hata is directing the sound.
