dTV Miniseries, Higuchi's ATTACK ON TITAN: COUNTER ROCKETS Takes Off In A New Trailer!

Big things are happening as we kick off August with the Japan release of the first of Highchi Shinji‘s two-part live-action adaptation of the hit manga/anime franchise, Attack On Titan. Thus, Japanese streaming video service, dTV will be linking to the films of a three-part tie-in miniseries of its own, now in the form of Attack On Titan: Counter Rockets.

Actress Ishihara Satomi co-stars in the films while leading the cast of the series as it focuses  on the soldiers, as well as her character’s research of the monstrous Titans and the creation of the 3D maneuvering equipment they use to combat them. Higuchi himself also directed the series, otherwise assuring he’s got his hands on everything from start to finish throughout his cinematic universe here whilst romising action and visuals that are equally dazzling for fans across the board.

Sakuraba Nanami, Watanabe Shu, Takeda Rina and Hiraoka Yuta also star. The three-part series premieres August 15 with every Saturday in between, and with another two-season animated spin-off in the works, there’s no doubt fanfare here will continue as electric as it has been.

The first movie releases in Japan this weekend with the second arriving on September 19 with releases currently planned in Australia/NZ by Madman and in the U.S. by FUNimation. Watch the trailer below!
