Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin TV Anime Briefly Listed
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine briefly listed a television anime adaptation of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) manga, although the listing has since been removed. According to the listing, the anime will premiere next spring.
The manga depicts the battles between humans and the man-eating giants who now rule the world. Isayama launched the manga in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009. The manga has become a sleeper hit, and Kodansha USA is publishing the manga for North America.
Kodansha confirmed last year that a film adaptation will open in Japan in fall of 2013 or later. Director Tetsuya Nakashima (Kamikaze Girls, Confessions, Paco and the Magical Picture Book) began shooting the live-action film this year.
Update 2: The next issue of Bessatsu Shonen Magazine will arrive this Saturday, December 8, the same day that Pony Canyon will unveil Project "Attack" with 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.
