Live Impact Attack on Titan Teaser Released!

Shingeki no Kyojin, or Attack on Titan continues to be a hot topic with the reveal that it’ll be getting a large-scale stage performance called Live Impact Attack on Titan, and now we’re getting a glimpse of it through a teaser video! It gives fans a chance to see protagonist Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert.

The Attack on Titan manga by Isayama Hajime has been incredibly successful with more than 62 million copies printed, and it has been adapted into a variety of media including anime, a live-action film, light novels, and video games. This will be the first stage performance, and it will have a cast of 150 performers. Top creators are also being brought in for its long run of 55 shows.

The video showed Miura Hiroki, the ballet dancer who played Atobe Keigo in The Prince of Tennis Musical Third Season, as Eren. Mikasa will be played by Tsukui Minami who played Dragon Kid in Tiger & Bunny: The Live and who has also worked in various special effects suits as a member of Japan Action Enterprise. Last but not least, Armin will be played by Sakamoto Shogo, the singer-songwriter who played the fourth Echizen Ryoma in The Prince of Tennis Musical. These actors excel in both acting and in physical ability, and the video hints at some incredible action. Phrases with well-known keywords like kankyaku wo osou bakufuu (“a blast that attacks the audience”) and akkan no kuuchuusen (“mid-air combat highlights”) appear, and we'll be able to experience these for ourselves at the Maihama Amphitheater on July 28. When those curtains open, you’ll be able to taste the raw nightmare of Titans for yourself.

There will be two raffle rounds for the first half of the showings from July 28 through Aug. 17 including the preview showings, and these will be limited to members of the official e-mag. The raffle will be open from Feb. 26 to March 5.
