Attack on Titan’s Close Shave

TitanShave2By The Wind up Geek

According to these ads, seen recently on a subway train in Tokyo, hair removal isn’t just something for humans, it’s for Titans too. When a titan breaks down your city wall and stomps your friends into the ground, she doesn’t roll her eyes and think “oh really George, why can’t you just take me out for a curry for once”, she has more complex things on her mind. Things like “Why are they screaming? Is it my appearance? Did I not shave close enough this morning? I hope there’s not something in my teeth because that would really be embarrassing.”

But Those thoughts are washed away with what I believe are ads for shavers (if I am wrong, please comment to correct me) of Epiler (for women) and Men’s TBC brands. TBC is a cosmetics company established in Japan in 1976.

These ads are promoting not only TBC products but the upcoming Attack on Titan: Live Action movie starring Haruma Miura, Hiroki Hasegawa, Kiko Mizuhara and Kanata Hongo.

And this isn’t the first time this licence has been used to advertise shavers, last year Attack on Titan’s animated counterpart was used in a ad campaign for Schick razors.

With such a perfect shave Titans can be now feared and envied at the same time.
