Wagakki Band Release MV for “Hangeki No Yaiba”, Theme Song of Attack on Titan Mini-Series!
Wagakki Band has released a short preview of “Hangeki No Yaiba” from their upcoming 2nd album “Yasou Emaki” (release date: September 2)! It is the theme song for “Shingeki no Kyojin ~Hangeki no Noroshi~”, the live action web drama adaptation of the massively popular manga Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin).
It is regrettable that this is only a short preview as it fades out just as the band members are about jump into battle. Even though they have their blades ready, without Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear how will they hope to get high enough to fight whatever has smashed through the ceiling and ruined their dinner? While “Hangeki No Yaiba” is a welcome return to the sound they are known for, seeing them in normal clothes is kind of unusual. It would have been even more amazing if they had been wearing the uniforms and the Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear though. Maybe it will happen in the full version of the MV? Vocalist Yuko Suzuhana seems unusually calm even after the members of her band have been defeated. Perhaps she is a Titan?
“Shingeki no Kyojin ~Hangeki no Noroshi~” is a 3-part web series produced for dTV that began broadcasting on August 15th. The main character of the series is Hanji, who is again played by Satomi Ishihara.
“Yasou Emaki” is being released in 5 different versions. Type-A includes a DVD or Blu-ray with the MVs for: “Ikusa”, “Senbonzakura”, “Akatsuki no Ito”, “Ikusa”, “Hangeki No Yaiba”, and “Nadeshiko Zakura” as well as the making of videos for “Hangeki No Yaiba” and “Akatsuki no Ito”. Type-B includes a DVD or Blu-ray with live footage from Wagakki Band’s concerts at Shibuya Public Hall on January 7, 2015 and Taipei ATT SHOWBOX on May 10, 2015. Type-C includes no DVDs or Blu-ray discs but, all first press versions include a bonus track “Chikyuu Saigo No Kokuhaku Wo”.
All 10 dates of their 1st Japanese tour have been sold out but, tickets for their January 6, 2016 live at the legendary Nippon Budokan will go on sale, with members of their fan club Yaeryu being able to purchase tickets starting on August 20th and all others from September 15th.
