Comment: Producer Shintaro Kawakubo
I have been asked “what is the core of Attack on Titan’s interest?” for so many times and I have prepared some answers for all the time, but I thought that I could never answer them fully. However, it’s now 7 and half years since the manga started, and at last, I’m now able to answer the question from the bottom of my heart. I’m trying to express my answer as “live performance”, so please enjoy it.
Comment: Director Akiko Kodama
