attack on titan nhk world 500x279 NHK World goes behind the scenes of Attack on Titan

Hey, have you heard? There’s this really awesome anime airing on Japanese TV right now. It’s called Attack on Titan.

What? You’ve never heard of it? You don’t know what the fuss is all about? Then you need to hit the jump right this moment and watch the following clip from NHK World’s Imagine-nation programme!

The clips are from an episode that aired in late April. Imagine-nation hosts Chiaki Horan (who was in Mahou Sentai Magiranger playing the role of Nai, one halve of the villainous pretty girl duo of Nai-to-Mea), and Nicholas Pettas (actor and former kickboxer who won the K-1 Japan Grand Prix 2001) dive into the reasons why the best-selling manga series – over 1 million copies sold for each of the manga’s nine volumes – has captured the imaginations of so many in Japan, as well as the creative process behind the series.

Note: If you haven’t yet watched the anime but plan to soon, do note that there are some minor spoilers here.
