Attack on Titan: Part 1
Attack on Titan or better know to fans as Shingeki no Kyojin is Japanese anime that caught the heart of fans like a wild fire! How could we make such a statement? Or rather how could we prove such a statement?
Well over here in the Malaysian cosplay scene we couldn’t help but notice the sudden emerging of cosplayers in brown coats & high boots…. & the occasion full weaponry of sword + props popped up by the dozens at every single event in 2013. Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman and Captain Levi were the most popular characters cosplayed & it split over to 2014 too.
As I headed over to Singapore while on holiday & also to cover some events, lo & behold the “TITAN” phenomena has also struck in with the cosplayers there too. It had made such an impact with the fans that it looked destined to be one of those special anime titles that would go a long way.
Thanks to Golden Screen Cinemas, we now have more than just the annual Japanese Film Festival, which is coming up very soon in September. In 2015 GSC has gone out on a limb to bring in many of the anime movies as well as live action films to be screened at selected GSC halls. We had the famous live action Rurouni Kenshin Part 1 & 2 last year… anime movies like Doraemon, Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto the Movie: The Last, Lupin, Live action Parasyte Part 1 & 2 following that. Also it doesn’t stop here either… after the live action Attack on Titan comes the animated Initial D movie followed by the animtated Attack on Titan 2: Wings of Freedom, then the other new anime phenomenon movie Love Live! & ending with Boruto before the year ends. Mind you, all this is happening even without taking into account the great films yet to be announced at the upcoming Japanese Film Festival organised by the Japan Foundation Kuala Lumpur.
So fans & friends get ready!! The EPIC proportioned titans are coming to the big screen on 27 August 2015. Also look out for Comic Fiesta to be giving out free passes on their FB page via contest. Hope you all assemble the entire squad for the premiere!! Have a good one!!
