"Bee Manga" motion comic re-unites cast of TV anime, adapts first 14 chapters
Beginning in June of 2015, dTV is expanding its coverage of Attack on Titan properties to include an original motion comic that adapts the first 14 chapters of Hajime Isayama's manga. This new "Bee Manga" will include sound effects as well as spoken dialogue.
Interestingly, dTV reunited the cast of the Attack on Titan TV anime - including Yūki Kaji as Eren Jaeger, Yui Ishikawa as Mikasa Ackerman, and Marina Inoue as Armin Arlet - in order to re-record the dialogue using Isayama's manga as a template rather than the TV anime scripts. Yūki Kaji described the recording as a "rich, rewarding" experience and commented on the challenges posed in capturing the pathos of Isayama's artwork.
dTV also handles digital distribution for the upcoming original Attack on Titan live-action TV drama, the Attack on Titan anime compilation films, and the 2013 Attack on Titan TV anime. For more information, check out the official home page here.
