Shingeki no Kyojin Movie Cast Revealed

news_xlarge_mizuhara

The upcoming live action movie for the titan thwarting Shingeki no Kyojin has given eager fans a brief glimpse of the anime’s well-loved characters in the form of their live-action equivalents.

While the actors in question may not bear an ideal likeness to their assumed roles, (like most live-action anime films) the movie’s producer Yoshihiro Sato mentioned that he cast actors based on the “spirit” of the characters rather than physical resemblance.

Shingeki no Kyojin’s live-action cast equivalent:

news_xlarge_haruma

news_xlarge_hasegawa

news_xlarge_hongo

news_xlarge_ichihara

news_xlarge_kunimura

news_xlarge_matsuo

news_xlarge_miura

news_xlarge_mizuhara

news_xlarge_mizusaki

news_xlarge_sakuraba

news_xlarge_takeda

news_xlarge_taki

news_xlarge_watabe

Observant fans may notice the disregard for the anime’s original setting, instead opting for what seems to be a post-apocalyptic environment armed to the teeth with tanks and RPGs – currently no explanation for this change exists, nor the ongoing absence of titans.

Shingeki no Kyojin will have 2 live-action films, both of which are to debut summer 2015.

    "Spirit of the characters" my ass. Half of these characters are made up from scratch, and are probably included just to give jobs to friends/family/connections of the higher ranking staff. That, and they changed the setting too; why the hell does Hanji have a rocket launcher? This is going to be another failure of an adaptation.

    Do they even use makeup artists? The least they could do is apply wigs and contacts since they obviously don't want to use anyone other than japanese (which is retarded seeing as they have some of the worst acting possible).

    Asians were rare too, meaning that they were legit European and/or other. Not to dye the hair, at least, is kinda stupid and takes away from understanding who they really are. I just don't like separating the fanbase between manga, anime, and movie where they can't compare what they should like equally.

    Explanation: In Spanish "Mikasa" sounds exactly like "Mi casa" or in English "My house" (or home).

    But you may now the only asian character in the manga is Mikasa (btw she is only half asian, his mother was asian and his father caucasic), and that was somehow relevant to the storyline.

    Um... Yeah, this should actually be Western-made, since the ONLY half-asian character is Mikasa. All others are europeans.

    SnK seems loosely based on western myths of giants such as the Nephilim in the bible and the Jötunn of Norse mythology.

    And here I thought that Mikasa was supposed to be the only Asian character in the series.

    According to what the series said her being Asian was rare no mention on her being the last one.

    I'm confused. Didn't the creator reveal that Armin was a chick?? Note: I truly couldn't give 2 shit about this movie or any other iteration of AoT, but besides not be a chick, why isn't he/she blond???

    That comes from an interview with the author, where when asked who was the prettiest girl or something he (supposedly) jokingly said it was Armin. I'm pretty sure he never outright said he was a girl, also the scene where he dresses as Chrysta and gets groped is particularly interesting because the groper tells Armin something like "he changed him that way," why would he say that if Armin was a girl from the beginning? I assumed he got so turned on by Armin he became attracted to pretty boys, thus blaming Arming about his newfound fetish.

    I've been out of the loop with the manga for a while though, so I could be wrong.

    I didn't have high hopes for this, and now it's confirmed.
    A chon as the main role in a Japanese movie. Someone must have paid a lot for the license rights to the movie, and I'll bet you they weren't Japanese.
    This is just one of the ways in which Korea and the Korean government tries to parasitize on and eventually subsume Japanese culture. If you look at Western movies including Japanese characters, said characters almost always turn out to be played by Koreans. It's almost as if someone out there was looking for movies including Japanese characters and manipulating/bribing the staff to take on a Korean actor, isn't it?
    Oh right, I forgot the massive zainichi media clique in Japan, as well as the Korean directors stinking rich from knocking off Japanese movies in the Korea Wave, and not to speak of the bloodthirsty "anti-discrimination" Korean immigrant groups in the US that brutally pounce on anything that portrays Japanese culture in a positive way.
    There's no fucking excuse anymore. You can see with your own eyes the occupation of Takeshima, the historical revisionism (Korean claims to kendo, samurai, yakiniku and ramen, as well as them claiming that their "manhwa" is original to Korea when the very construction of the word is natively Japanese), the IP theft and industrial espionage (Samsung/LG towards Sony and Panasonic) and in this case their perfidious attempts to undermine Japan and its culture. You have no excuse whatsoever to buy into this gook garbage that actively undermines Japanese culture through funneling money into historical revisionism and terrorism attempts (Osaka May 2013 stabbings) as well as attempts to meld the Western perceptions of Korea and Japan.

    As an Asian American I play the "let's guess who's really running this restaurant!" game, and I lose every fucking time. Seriously I enter a Korean restaurant is ran by Chinese, I go into a Japanese restaurant is ran by Koreans, I go to a Hindi/Chinese fusion restaurant is ran by Japanese (not even kidding)

    The shitty default Photoshop Lens Flare. Whoever was tasked with making these posters is a complete idiot.

    That's the point. If you cast only asians, you better make Mikasa white / another race. If anything, she looks too Japanese here.

    Is this supposed to be some kind of cynicism? Considering how they changed everything else almost completely, I'm just glad that Mikasa actually looks like the fierce Asian beauty she's supposed to be.

    What I mean is, the only reason she looks the "least Asian" is because she completely destroys the Nadeshiko image unconsciously assumed for Asian women even by westerners. It's the only thing they got right, and they got it right perfectly. I'd rather celebrate that than ask for the the ridiculousness to be increased even further.
