Lotteria's Attack on Titan Burger Towers Above the Rest

The Asian fast-food chain Lotteria is teaming up with Attack on Titan to produce what may be the tallest anime tie-in burger ever. Scheduled to begin sale on March 6, the Attack on Titan version of Lotteria's Tower Cheeseburger will come in three sizes: five meat patties, seven meat patties, or a whopping 10 meat patties. The largest version ("10-Meter Class Attack on Titan Supplemental Set") will get its own "wall" sleeve showing the Colossal Titan's face for 2,000 yen (about US$20).

The burgers will come with a keyring and food item vouchers featuring Mikasa (3D Maneuver Gear keyring with Shrimp Burger voucher) or Eren (Blade keyring with Cheeseburger voucher).

Anime DVD/BD Release

UNimation is setting up to have a very popular title out for sale throughout the summer convention season as today they’ve announced a June 3rd, 2014 release date for the first half of Attack on Titan. The series is coming in both a standard DVD/BD combo form as well as a limited edition form.

No details are available at the moment in regards to what will be on the releases, but the standard edition is priced at $49.98, which makes it lower than the usual price point for a new show, and the limited edition is priced at $89.98. The limited edition is limited to just 7,500 copies, which is more than most of the recent limited editions they’ve produced which have been around 2,500 copies. But it’s obvious that this release will definitely sell a whole lot more for many months to come.

Plot concept: When the man-eating giants called Titans first appeared, humans retreated behind massive walls. After a hundred years of safety, a colossal-sized Titan smashes through the defenses, unleashing a flood of giants and carnage in the streets. Eren Jaeger watches helplessly as one of the creatures devours his mother. He vows to kill every Titan walking the earth. Eren and his surviving friends enlist to fight against the insatiable monsters. The future looks bleak, but there’s more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity’s last hope against extinction.

‘Attack on Titan: Colossal Edition’

Called Attack on Titan: Colossal Edition, the 1,000-page book will collect the first five volumes in a 7-inch by 10-inch format (the original size). Priced at $59.99, it’s set to arrive in stores on May 27

Debuting in 2009, the manga is set in a world where humanity is forced to live in walled cities to protect itself against grotesque people-eating giants known as Titans. The story centers on three youths who vow revenge following the destruction of their hometown by one of the creatures.

Attack on Titan sold 15.9  million copies last year in Japan alone — it was second only to One Piece — and has made significant inroads into the North American book market, placing five volumes in the Nielsen BookScan Top 20 for September.
Twelve volumes have been released to date in Japan, and 11 in North America.
