Southeast Asian anime channel ANIPLUS Asia has announced on Thursday that they will air Attack on Titan: Chronicle anime compilation film this January.
The anime film will premiere on Saturday, January 2, at 07:00pm PHT, which will be back-to-back with the catch-up marathon of Attack on Titan Final Season, as part of the anime channel’s holiday specials.
Attack on Titan: Chronicle is an anime compilation film that summarized the events of the past 59 episodes of Seasons 1-3, which will include new narration from Eren, Mikasa and Armin.
The anime film was produced by WIT Studio, which animated the previous three seasons of the anime series, with production assistance from YOYOmiracle, Inc.
The lead voice cast from previous seasons, including Yuuki Kaji (as Eren Jaeger), Yui Ishikawa (as Mikasa Ackerman) and Marina Inoue (as Armin Arlelt), returned to portray their respective roles.
The anime compilation film was screened in Japanese cinemas on a limited run basis on July 17. ANIPLUS Asia also hold theatrical screenings of the anime film in Thailand and Singapore last October.
Attack on Titan is an anime adaptation of the popular post-apocalyptic manga series by Hajime Isayama, which is being serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since September 2009 and currently has 31 volumes.
The popular manga can also be read in English language through Mangamo, BookWalker, and Crunchyroll’s digital manga service.
Southeast Asian anime channel ANIPLUS Asia has aired the first season of Attack on Titan when the channel was launched in November 2013.
The anime channel has since aired the subsequent seasons on a simulcast basis, starting with the second season in Spring 2017, then the third season’s first part in Autumn 2018 and followed by the second part in Spring 2019.
The fourth season, which is set to be the final season of the anime series, premiered in Southeast Asia last December 7 on ANIPLUS Asia and Chinese-owned video streaming service iQIYI.
