Is the person in charge of Bleacher Report’s Twitter account an anime fan? Super Bowl Sunday is coming February 13, and Bleacher Report tweeted this Attack on Titan reference to its almost 11 million followers.


Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is on the ground, and Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is the Titan. The game will occur in the SoFi Stadium.

As of this writing, more than 10,000 people have retweeted the Attack on Titan reference, and more than 57,000 have liked it. It’s proving quite popular in Japan, because even though the Super Bowl is an American thing, many Japanese people are thrilled to see something from Japan have such a strong influence overseas. SoraNews24 translated some of the excited online reactions from Japanese people:

“Invite the show’s creator to the game and sit him in the VIP section!”
“The fact that over 10 million people follow this account and are seeing this is amazing!”
“Does that mean Attack on Titan is more popular worldwide than Squid Game?”

Bleacher Report has used anime imagery in the past to get its sports fans excited. Just a few months ago it tweeted this Naruto reference, mashing up Naruto with the NBA.


Bleacher Report gave this description of itself:

“There’s an ever-present energy that surrounds the world of sports. It exists on courts and fields and radiates from the airwaves of TV and movies, from the beats and lyrics of music, from the diverse threads of fashion, from the roars and sobs of fans, and throughout the cultural landscape in countless ways. Through creative expression, B/R adds fuel to the fire. We capture and unleash the untapped power to deliver visceral, authentic moments at the intersection of sports and culture.”
