Everyone in, the manga and anime world knows about Hajime Isayama. He is the creator of Attack on Titan series, which is known throughout the world. On November 1, something interesting happened, and it has left people amazed. Kondansha’s Magazine debut website published Isayama’s “Jinrui VS Kyojin” (Humanity vs. Giants or Humanity vs. Titan). It is a one-shot manga, which was created by a 19-year-old Hajime Isayama.
Hajime Isayama’s Manga Before Attack On Titan
Isayama had submitted the manga to Kodansha’s Magazine Grand Prix contest back in 2006. The manga won the “Fine Work” award. Before submitting his work in the contest, he submitted the manga to Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, but, it was rejected. Isayama then launched the Attack on Titan manga in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009.
The 26th compiled book volume for the manga was published by Kodansha on August 9. The series is printed in English by Kodansha Comics and the 25th volume was released on July 3. So far, the manga has 86 million copies in print, which makes it one of the most popular manga in the recent years.
The manga has also been adapted into an anime series with the first season released in April 2013. Recently, the first part of the anime wrapped up earlier this year and the second part of the third season will debut in April 2019. The manga has also inspired two live-action movies which were released in 2015.
Warner Bros. recently finalized a deal to produce a live-action film adaptation with Andy Muschietti (It) as the director.
I think it’s going to be another crazy movie, and when I mean crazy I mean crazy in a bad way. I don’t recall any live-action anime movie being good. Maybe it’s just me. But, I would never agree to a live-action anime movie. It just gives me the Dragonball Evolution feels all over again. Personally, I dislike the idea of live action adaptations. However, there are many people who like it so, I guess it’s good for them.
