Inspired by the latest Japanese hit anime series “Attack on Titan”(English Title)/進擊的巨人 “Advancing Giants” (Japanese title), more than 100 Hong Kong netizens cooperated to create “Attack on China”(English Title)/進擊的蝗蟲 “Advancing Locusts”(Chinese title) based on the series’ theme song.
On this day,
Hongkongers have finally woken up,
founding themselves being cheated by the greatest swindle ever – – China-Hong Kong integration can maintain prosperity.
They are cognizant of the fear their home is being invaded,
and the humiliation their resources are being looted.
Invasion of the locusts corrodes this city.
Hundred millions of them are invading Hong Kong. They won’t feel ashamed.
They pay no respect; they are arrogant.
They ruin my life with so-called prosperity.
They boss the locals and twist the facts.
Defend our Hong Kong land. End this adversity.
Fight against the invasion. Don’t be afraid.
Fight against the Chinese Communist Party. Sweep out the filth.
Shout out for justice. Defend this land.
Let’s step forward
March with raging blood when the locusts invade.
Don’t afraid who is yelling.
Hong Kong is being invaded. Locusts’ crap is everywhere.
Locusts’ aberrant behaviors must be stopped.
When the locusts invade, don’t make way to them.
Defend Hong Kong. Don’t count on luck.
The rescue of human rights and freedom depends on our consciences.
Humanities, we will own it in the future.
The encouragement of will makes us despise the provocation.
Despite in desperation, we counteract to leash the anger.
In this very battle, everyone stands together
to let Hong Kong reborn.

The original video was removed by YouTube on July 1st. It had garnered around 350,000 views before its removal.
In the original story, in order to avoid man-eating giants (titans), humans live in sanctuaries behind three 50-meter-tall walls. Humankind had managed to live peacefully for a century until the first 60-meter-tall giant appeared.
In Hong Kong netizens’ version, names of the three walls that bulwark against China: the innermost is “civilisation and ethics”, the middle is “human rights and rule of law”, and the outermost is “one-country-two-systems”.
