Cast roles for ‘Shingeki no Kyojin’ live-action film revealed

On November 19, the cast roles and teaser images for upcoming film “Shingeki no Kyojin (“Attack on Titan”)”, which is set for release in summer 2015, have been revealed.

As previously announced, it’s a live-action adaptation of the popular manga of the same name, and actor Miura Haruma will be starring in it as the protagonist “Eren.”

It was back in July when the main cast members were revealed, and people were wondering who would play the character as the cast lineup had never been revealed until now.

Regarding casting, producer Sato Yoshihiro said, “We did not consider if their appearances looked alike with the characters in the original manga at all. After discussing with Isayama Sensei (the author of the manga) numerous times, we selected them only focusing on if they could embody the spirits of the characters.”

Are you ready to see who plays who? Check it out below!

Interview with Sebastiano Serafini

sebastiano_serafini_seba_model_musician_2014 (10)

For those who may not already be aware, would you mind introducing yourself and sharing a little bit of your background?
My name is Sebastiano Serafini. I’m a model and musician currently living in Tokyo, Japan.
How did you get into singing and modeling? Were they something you always wanted to do?
I was scouted in Milan, Italy at the age of 15. Since then I’ve had opportunities to work around the world in many countries including: Japan, Taiwan, Korea, France, China, Thailand, USA and several others. I’ve always loved singing and I started learning piano at a very young age. I was just having fun with music and getting my photos taken, but I would never have expected this would be my full-time job one day.

You have two very busy careers as both a singer and fashion model. What is the biggest challenge in balancing two demanding careers?
I try to mix elements from both worlds even when I’m singing. It’s challenging but rewarding.

What are some of your favorite things about being a singer?
What I love the most is that I can express my emotions which allows me to reach many people who might live in different countries and speak different languages.

What are some of your favorite things about being a fashion model?
It’s always great that I get to collaborate with fantastic photographers, designers, stylists, as well as hair and make-up artists. It’s a very creative world!

Your career puts you into contact with a number of other talented artists. Who are some of the musicians, designers, and other unique people you’ve had the opportunity to work with?
There are so many talented artists that I’ve been working with over the years that it isn’t easy for me to list them all. I can share the names of many of my friends who are involved in helping create my newest album: AOI (Shazna), Yukimi (ex Unite), Yuki (liraizo), Nimo (ACE), Kizasi, Misha Janette, Hikaru Cho, Mitsuhiro Higuchi, Si Oux, minori, amihamu, dubby bunny and more.

You recently released your first single. Could you tell us more about it?
Sure. My debut single “Fallen” was released on Friday, November 7th. It was recorded in Europe with German producer Oliver DeVille. Fallen mixes pop with hardcore elements & dub-step to create a blend of music never heard before. It’s a unique sound that will surprise many listeners. Fallen debuted number one on the German pop iTunes Chart and will also be used on the soundtrack for the television series Columns. A J-pop Remix of the song will be released in the following weeks.

Despite having such a busy lifestyle, you always make time for your fans. What’s your secret to balancing it all without it overwhelming you?
I guess to me I always feel so honored to have all these great fans who are trying their best to support me. Making time for them is giving me more energy to keep doing what I’m doing and it helps me express my gratitude for their continued support. Knowing that what I do inspires people is actually what inspires me every day.

What would you say have been the major contributing factors to your success?
Being true to myself and having friends who support me. Also, keeping an open mind and never being afraid to try new things.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In 10 years? Maybe on the moon? Seriously, I like to live my life day-by-day, without thinking too much about the future. I try to do be the best I can and enjoy what life is giving me.

Any special messages you want to share with your fans?
Thank you always for your support and I really hope I can visit you all one day!
