The Heroic Legend of Arslan Faces A Colossal Titan in A Train Station Billboard
posted on by Bamboo Dong
An interesting billboard has popped up at JR Shinkuku Station in Tokyo. It features the lead character of The Heroic Legend of Arslan, the TV anime adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa's manga, based on Yoshiki Tanaka's novels. Behind him are 258,000 soldiers from Lusitania, as well as 138,000 soldiers from Pars. But look even closer and you'll see some more familiar faces:
To the left is a Colossal Titan. And supposedly, if you look closely at the image, there are even a few Survey Corps members scattered into the crowd.
While the collaboration seems strange, both Attack on Titan and The Heroic Legend of Arslan are serialized in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine.
Here are the other Arslan ads opposite the wide one above:

Incidentally, The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime is taking over the timeslot formerly occupied by The Seven Deadly Sins anime. Thus, it's only appropriate that the anime end with crossover art from Arakawa:
The anime will premiere on Sunday, April 5 at 5:00 p.m. in Japan.
