Funimation Entertainment also announced during ANNCast on Friday that it will stream the anime of Saki Nakagawa's Attack on Titan: Junior High (Shingeki! Kyojin Chūgakkō) spinoff manga as it airs in Japan.

Midori Gotou (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, Genshiken: Second Generation) is handling the series composition, Yuuko Yahiro (Diabolik Lovers, B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time) is the character designer, and Asami Tachibana (Haikyu!!, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, Robotics;Notes) is composing the music.
Linked Horizon (Attack on Titan's two opening themes) will perform the show's opening theme song "Seishun wa Hanabi no Yō ni" (Youth is Like Fireworks).
The series will premiere on MBS on October 3 at 25:58 (effectively October 4 at 1:58 a.m.). The series will also air on Tokyo MX, BS11, RKK, and SBS.
