Why attack on titan's most popular character isn't in the movie


One of the biggest questions raised by the upcoming live-action Attack on Tichảy movie is “Where the hechồng is Levi!?” In a recent interview with the movie’s screenwriter, Tomohiro Machiyama, he revealed that changing the setting lớn Japan may be why the badass neat freak is missing from the live-action movies.

According khổng lồ Machiyama, the world of the live-action movie và the world of the anime và manga are fundamentally different worlds, thus changing the setting of the movie to lớn nhật bản. The movie has a Japanese tone of sorts và a little less European than the anime và the manga adaptation. And because they changed the setting, they also changed the race of some characters and changed them from German to lớn Japanese, lượt thích Eren, Armin, & the rest of the cast with the exception of Mikasa who is already half-Asian. Machiyama also pointed out that Japanese fans (or AoT fans in general) don’t want khổng lồ see Japanese actors playing German characters.

And while some retained their German names, the biggest naming problem was Levi. Levi, whose name is リヴァイ (Rivai) in nhật bản has the katakana character, ヴ, which is (v), and that does not sound Japanese at all. Characters who were “race-lifted” lượt thích Eren would be easy khổng lồ write in Japanese, & thus are more natural, but Levi is not.

While one of the most badass neat freaks in anime is left out of the movie because his name would cause a conflict with the story’s new setting, there is however the new character named Shikishima, who is described as the “Strongest Man”. Whether he is a successful surrogate for the real Levi is still a question however.

In the interview, the renowned screenwriter & movie critic also admitted that the sequel movie, Attachồng on Titan: End of the World, might not be accepted by many fans of the anime and manga as it will get them “heated”. He said that there are a lot of major changes in the new movies, especially with the main characters.

In the anime và manga, Eren is more vengeful & vows to lớn kill every single tichảy out there, however, in the live-action movie, Haruma Miura’s Eren is more afraid of titans & is often crippled when seeing them. And Mikasa is not the badass titan killer we know in the original, but serves more as a love sầu interest for Eren.

However, it seems that a few of those changes, particularly in Eren’s character, were made on the request of Attachồng on Titung creator, Hajime Isayama himself. Isayama asked to change Eren’s character as he is “not sympathetic as a shounen manga protagonist” and even said himself that he wants khổng lồ see Eren become “paralyzed with fear” whenever he sees a tichảy. Well, we can’t argue once the creator himself steps in and says he wants a different Eren, right?


But despite the fact that the movie does not have Levi in it or that Mikasa & Eren will be quite different, Machiyama still said that he is confident that the movie will be successful and will be well-received by the fans.

The first movie will simply be titled Attack on Tichảy and it will premiere in Japan on August 1, năm ngoái. The second movie meanwhile will premiere on September 19, năm ngoái and it will be titled Attachồng on Titan: End of the World. The movie will also be shown in Singapore, and more details about the Singapore premiere can be seen through this link
