Project Description

This is an official line art collection by Arifumi Imai, the action animation director of the anime series Attack on Titan Season 1 to Season 3. We have included the content of both volumes 1 and 2 in one book and added new cuts just for E-SAKUGA! You will get more volume and content!

In Anime: ATTACK on TITAN – Arifumi Imai- E-SAKUGA -, we have made it easier to compare keyframes with the final animated scene and see the exposure sheet all in one screen! We have included not just the composited cels, but also cels with just the characters (in color) so that you can have a deeper dive into the production process of animation. We have added eight cuts including Eren in Season 1 and Miche, Gelgar, and Nanaba in Season 2 that were left out in the printed version. Unlike the printed version that put great work into the actual weight of paper and how it is flipped through, we have realized a different and new style of line art collection.
