Attack on Titan x Sanrio Crossover Dolls Up Armin and Connie

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest anime franchises around, with the people-eating behemoths casting a shadow on the denizens of Paradis. Despite this fact, the Scout Regiment has found themselves in some adorable crossovers, with the latest seeing the heroes of the series teaming up with the cartoon mascots of Sanrio. Now, new images have surfaced featuring Connie, Armin, and two of the most adorable members of Sanrio's cast to help in promoting this unexpected union.

When last we left Connie and Armin in Attack on Titan's anime adaptation, the two members of the Scout Regiment had to make some tough decisions in order to save the outside world from Eren Jaeger's destructive goals. With a number of residents of Paradis backing up Eren's goal of eliminating the nation of Marley and the civilians of the world who see them as devils, the Survey Corps has been forced to eliminate former friends, with Connie brutally shooting his old friends in order to get an airship. While the Scout Regiment might have achieved their goal of finding a method of transportation to face the new Founding Titan, they've suffered some serious physical and emotional scars in doing so.

Twitter Outlet Attack on Titan Wiki shared two new images of the Attack on Titan and Sanrio collaboration, seeing Connie and Armin existing next to some of the most adorable creations of the company that is most well known for bringing Hello Kitty to the masses:

Anime fans can expect Attack on Titan's anime adaptation to return next year, with Studio MAPPA returning for the final episodes of the dark series. In keeping up with the story to date, fans of the Survey Corps should prepare themselves for one of the biggest, and darkest, brawls of the series to date, and like so many other storylines in the franchise, it should come as no surprise that not everyone is going to make it out of this fight alive.
