posted on by Egan Loo
Hajime Isayama's 14th Attack on Titan manga volume is announcing on Friday that the spinoff story Attack on Titan: No Regrets (Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku) is being adapted into anime. The new anime will come on two new original animation DVDs that will be bundled with the 15th and 16th volumes of the main manga on December 9, 2014 and April 9, 2015, respectively.
Artist Hikaru Suruga and writer Gan Sunaaku launched this spinoff manga in Kodansha's Aria magazine last fall, and Kodansha Comics is publishing it in North America. Kodansha Comics describes the story:
This prequel to megahit Attack on Titan answers the questions: How did Captain Levi of the Survey Corps go from street tough to humanity's strongest soldier? And how did Commander Erwin become a cold, calculating leader, ready to sacrifice anything to save the human race? The fires that forged this bond of loyalty and trust were intense indeed!
The staff and cast from last year's Attack on Titan television anime series are returning for these original animation DVDs:
- Director: Tetsuro Araki
- Series Composition: Yasuko Kobayashi
- Character Design: Kyoji Asano
- Animation Production: Wit Studio
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Levi
- Daisuke Ono as Erwin
