During the premiere for Attack on Titan’s second premiere movie, Wings of Liberty, a special event was held featuring the anime’s three lead seiyuus, Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman), Marina Inoue (Armin Arlert), as well as Yuu Kobayashi (“Potato Girl” Sasha Braus), Hiro Shimono (Connie Springer), Yu Shimamura (Annie Leonhardt), and Director Tetsuro Araki.
And just like any other event, the seiyuus (and the director) were enjoying themselves with their own selfies and photo sessions while wearing the series’ signature Survey Corps uniforms.
However, one photo was singled out by Attack on Titan creator, Hajime Isayama, and it featured the three lead seiyuus. In his own personal blog, the popular mangaka re-imagined the photo featuring Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman), Marina Inoue (Armin Arlert) as their Attack on Titan counterparts!
Hey! He even got Yuki Kaji’s tongue! Well, I’m pretty sure Marina Inoue is used to getting gender bent by Isayama by now (yes, Armin is actually a guy) as this ain’t the first time he’s done something like this. During the premiere of the first compilation movie last December 2014, a similar event was held and it featured Inoue taking a selfie with Yuki Kaji, Yui Ishikawa, and director Araki, and true enough, Isayama transformed them into their anime counterparts, with the exception of Araki of course
