The preview image for the November issue of Kodansha's Aria shōjo magazine revealed on Tuesday that the issue will premiere a new Attack on Titan spinoff manga when it ships on September 28.
Hikaru Suruga is drawing the Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku Prologue (Attack on Titan Side Story: A Choice with No Regrets Prologue) manga, and Nitroplus writer Gan Sunaaku (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet) is in charge of the manga's scripts. Sunaaku is also penning one of the Nitroplus visual novels that will ship with the sixth Blu-ray Disc volume of the Attack on Titan television anime series. The visual novel will be titled Kuinaki Sentaku [Yokoku] (A Choice With No Regrets: Preview) and will center on Levi and Erwin's past.
Aria's preview image for the new manga also features a silhouette of Levi, and the tagline notes: "How will a thug from the royal capital be able to walk forward alongside humanity's strongest!?"
Hajime Isayama's original Attack on Titan manga has already inspired Saki Nakagawa's Shingeki! Kyojin Chūgakkō spinoff comedy manga series and is inspiring the Attack on Titan: Before the Fall manga by Satoshi Shiki that is based on Ryō Suzukaze's light novel series of the same name.
