No. This is not one of those thousand parody videos of the popular anime Attack on Titan. This is real. Production I.G. announced that the Attack on Titan: Junior High parody manga series is actually getting an anime spin-off with the opening of its own website.

The original on-going manga is written and illustrated by Saki Nakagawa. The manga started being published in April 2012 and three volumes have been released so far. Attack on Titan: Junior High reimagines the series with the main characters as kids in junior high, with a more comedic and lighter tone.

“The story follows Eren Yeager and Mikasa Ackerman entering Titan Jr. High, a school where humans and Titans study in the same area in coexistence. Because of a “traumatic” event, where the Colossal Titan ate his lunch back in middle school, Eren hates the Titans, and is constantly trying to find a way to rid the earth of their kind. Because of this, he has a hard time making friends, much to Mikasa’s worry”. (shingekinokyojin.wikia)

The spin-off will feature the same voice actors as the original series. The spin-off will premiere on MBS and other stations in October.
