When Shingeki no Kyoukin or Attack on Titan first aired, few people could have predicted that it would gain such overwhelming popularity.

The series was touted as a “dark horse” when the Spring anime season started and a lot of people (including myself) counted it out as “just another shounen anime” even before the series began. But then it premièred and blew everybody away big time.

Now, the series will be having a reading and live event scheduled this October. The event is titled “Shingeki no Kyoujin: Attack Sound Experience”  and it will feature most of the anime’s main voice cast.

Reading and live events are when voice actors (seiyuus) go up on stage and read out several lines from the anime live in front of the audience with the anime playing in the back ground. Here is an example with Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sakunai‘s voice cast:

The event will happen on Saturday, October 12, 2013 with live music composed by Sawano Hiroyuki. The announced voice actors participating in the event are Yuki Kaji (as Eren Jaeger), Yui Ishikawa (as Mikasa Ackerman), Marina Inoue (as Armin Arlert), Kishou Taniyama (as Jean Kirstein), Yuu Kobayashi (as Sasha Braus) and Hiro Shimono (as Connie Springer).
