Production I.G. launched a website Friday which announced that Saki Nakagawa’s Attack on Titan: Junior High spin-off manga will be receiving a brand new anime starting in October 2015.  The spinoff is based off of Hajime Isayama’s original Attack on Titan series and depicts the characters as Chibis in a school setting.

The cast that voiced the characters in the first season of Attack on Titan will be returning to reprise their roles in the spinoff anime!
