The latest volume of Hajime Isayama’s Shingeki no Kyojin manga has announced that a special anime adaptation of the spin-off manga Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku is being produced. There will be two OVAs that will be bundled in the 15th and 16th volumes of Isayama’s main manga.
Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku is a manga series written by Gan Sunaaku and illustrated by Hikaru Suruga. The series began serialization in Kodansha’s Aria magazine last September. The first compiled volume has released this June with the second releasing on October 28. The manga follows the two strongest men in the series, Levi and Erwin, in their early days as they rise up the ranks and stay alive. The OVA will feature the return of the voice cast from the 2013 TV anime, as well as the staff members: Tetsuro Araki returns to direct and Wit Studio will animate.
Here is a synopsis of the manga:
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!
Here is a key visual of the spin-off manga:
The two Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden: Kuinaki Sentaku OVAs will release as a bundle with the 15th and 16th volumes of the Shingeki no Kyojin manga, which will release on December 9 this year and April 9 next year, respectively.
