This is really something. Impressive trailer.

I heard about the anime about two years ago or last year, not sure but it’s pretty new and it’s going to have a live action adaptation already – that’s a feat.

According to Wiki, the manga only started Sept. 2009, that was just a little over 4 years so still pretty new, compared to other mangas’ that started in the 90s even 80s that’s only getting live action adaptations now. So the anime is really, really new just started April last year, two anime films are in the works and live action adaptation next year.

In any case, I’m excited to see Haruma portray the role of Eren. From this trailer, I think the character will give him a really good stretch acting wise.

Should I start watching this to have a background before I see Haruma in the role in cinemas or through downloads…

With the upcoming release of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (part 2) and The Legend Ends (part 3), I hope SM Cinemas would also consider Lupin starring Oguri Shun and of course Attack on Titan when they’re released┬áto have exclusive screenings at SM┬áCinemas. Crossing my fingers.
