The first trailer for a two-part prequel series based on the manga of the same name, Attack on Titan: No Regrets is finally here, and Levi enthusiasts curious about the personal history of the stone-cold bad-ass will not be disappointed. Anime News Network has this translation of the promotional clip:

Levi: Just like that bald guy said, as soon as those guys come out, our work starts.
Farlan: That movement…! These guys aren’t the military!
Levi: It’s them… That emblem of the wings of freedom… It’s the Survey Corps.

According to Anime News, part one of No Regrets will be released in Japan on December 9th, 2014, and part two will follow on April 9th, 2015. io9 speculates that Funimation will likely have to wait until part two is released in Japan before bringing the first of the miniseries to the States—and we likely can’t expect any of Season 2 to be released here until long after both prequels air. Judging from what we already know of Erwin and Levi, do you think No Regrets will be worth the delay?
