Well for us here in the U.S. we have great news and that is the release date for Attack on Titan the live action film is Sept. 30th for part 1 and part 2 will be in the end of October. This is great news I know a lot of us are waiting to see it.
This film is extremely important to us fanboys and fangirls because this movie doing well is the key to all of our anima and manga fandoms going main stream.
Now thanks to the superhero movies comics at least U.S. type are mainstream now which is awesome for all of us we get more content and more stuff to view or buy etc etc.
However Manga and anima is not at the same level of popularity as its U.S. counterpart so this movie needs to be a blockbuster.
We need and my business especially this film to break the ice with general audiences. It will not be the first step toward that though. Big hero 6 from Disney did that with its anima style characters and melding Sanfran and Japan together. The movie was a massive hit and in my mind the first introduction to these types of characters and style of storytelling.
I think we all want to have the kind of market and respect that superhero films have but with Japanese manga / anima content.
Drake Enterprises needs that to happen we are just starting with the shop and one of the items is the maneuverability gear form the anima. Having that and the cape could attract people to the store bc a new group are discovering the Titan verse. Timing is everything and this could be a major help increasing convention attendance and local desire to get these products.
