In Attack on Titan, the underworld mafia strangles Eren, who, while still down, says these motivating words to Mikasa, encouraging her to fight.
Hajime Isayama, a Japanese manga artist, wrote his first manga, Attack on Titan, which became one of the most famous manga of all time. By the end of 2019, it had sold about 100 million copies. Japanese directors Tetsurō Araki, Masashi Koizuka, Yuichiro Hayashi, and Jun Shishido adapted this comic for television, which aired on Japan NHK General TV.
Later Wit Studio released the English dub in North America. Attack on Titan is a dark fantasy, and viewers who love action set in a post-apocalyptic world would love it. The story is set in the future in a post-apocalyptic world where humans suffer from a titan attack. They hide behind walls to save themselves.
The series’ main antagonists are the enormous giant-like titans who move around nude. They are very strong but at the same time have light bodies. The titans have a primary instinct to kill and devour human beings, which are later vomited out since they do not need food to stay alive.
The story revolves around the protagonist Eren. An infamously giant colossus titan attacks the wall, breaches it, and kills Eren’s mother. He joins the 104 Training Corps along with his friends Mikasa and Armin. Eren then becomes a part of the elite Survey Corps, whose aim is to fight and kill the titans.
There are different types of titans like an armored titan, beast titan, Jaw titan, war hammer titan, etc. Attack on Titan voice actors includes all seasoned Japanese actors. The main ones are:

Hiroshi Kamiya Levi Ackerman
Levi Ackerman has no connection to Mikasa Ackerman! He is the strongest soldier alive due to his awakened powers and because of the fact that Kenny Ackerman trained him. He possesses the ability to manifest the power of the Titans. Famous singer Hiroshi Kamye plays this character. He did a stellar act in bringing the captain of the Survey Corps to life and became a fan favorite since his first appearance. Kamye has played the character of Trafalgar Law in One Piece, Mephisto Pheles in Blue Exorcist, etc.
I think I might tear up at each of these Levi moments when Hiroshi Kamiya voices them, a few months from now.
Levi Ackerman is truly a GOAT. And his monologues always stand out in terms of emotional impact.
A special original score for these Levi moments would be desirable. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/PVAE1pvEiB
