Attack on Titan Saves Next Dance for Welcome to the Ballroom
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The second anime season of Attack on Titan ended on Saturday and while fans eagerly await season three next year, the staff are passing the torch on to Tomo Takeuchi's Welcome to the Ballroom anime adaptation that premieres at Anime Expo on July 2. Fan favorite character Levi was drawn in a coat and tails ready to waltz with Welcome to the Ballroom series star Tatara Fujita.
Kodansha Comics is publishing both the Attack on Titan and Welcome to the Ballroom manga in North America. Production I.G is animating Welcome to the Ballroom while its sister company Wit Studio animated Attack on Titan. Kodansha Comics describes the story of the Welcome to the Ballroom:
Feckless high school student Tatara Fujita wants to be good at something - anything. Unfortunately, he's about as average as a slouchy teen can be. The local bullies know this, and make it a habit to hit him up for cash, but all that changes when the debonair Kaname Sengoku sends them packing. Sengoku's not the neighborhood watch, though. He's a professional ballroom dancer. And once Tatara Fujita gets pulled into the world of the ballroom, his life will never be the same.
Takeuchi began the series in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the eighth compiled volume in October 2015. The ninth volume will ship in Japan on June 23. Kodansha Comics published the fifth volume in North America on May 23.
