Shingeki no Kyojin Manga with New Movie

Yes, you’ve read correctly – there is yet another new movie based on a manga that is coming up next year! Moreover, it is also schedules for the Fall season, just like Fairy Tail’s new adaptation. There are just so many differences that we cannot allow ourselves to compare the two news, even though they were posted just a few minutes from each other.

This news is about Hajime Isayama’s Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) manga serialized since 2009 in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine by Kodansha publishing. 

The story of this manga is about the world overtaken by a different race than the human and the fight of us, humans towards protecting our lives. This time, though, it  is not little green creatures with big gray or black eyes that try to take away our freedom, but a race of giants that feed on humans. In order to stay protected, however, the previously cal and secure occupants of the planet need to build huge tall walls around their current habitat, thus restricting their freedom once more. In the meantime, they also need to fight off any attempts of the giants to capture and consume what is left of the human race.

Surprisingly for such a genre, the manga has managed to sell over 3,000,000 copies since last year and is already on its 5th volume.

The manga is one of the strongest for me, but I also wonder how many movies can you make on 5 chapters?!

I only read Chapter 1 in a friend’s house, but those Giant b*stards seem too stupid to me.

Isayama Hajime is claimed by many to be the hottest newcomer, so good luck to him.

He’s hot aright… ;) :P
The plot is a bit weird, though. But it has all ingredients to become a visual feast…
