Attack on Titan Osaka Exhibit Turns Japanese Comedians into Titans
posted on by Carlos Cadorniga
Japanese comedians get "Titan-ized" for a brand-new exhibit in Osaka.
At the "Attack on Titan Wall Osaka" exhibit, the Japanese comedy team "Yoshimoto Shinkigeki" are presented stalking the streets of Osaka as Titans.
The campaign, known as "Shinkigeki no Kyojin" (a pun on the show's Japanese title, Shingeki no Kyojin), converts members Mr. Okure, Kazutoyo Koyabu, Morimizato, Ichinosuke Shimada and Succhi into various types of titans. Made to advertise Wall Osaka, posters featuring the comedy group titans are placed in stations on the Hankyu railway line.
"Attack on Titan Wall Osaka" is a special exhibit held at the Grand Front venue in Osaka. It features several images of titans invading Osaka tourist spots as well as special events hosted by some of the Japanese voice cast for the anime. It will even feature a special participatory event in which patrons enter a special 3D theater and experience the rush of using the Survey Corps weaponry, the 3D maneuver gear. The exhibit opened on September 11 and will close on October 18.
Wall Osaka is the second stop for the exhibit. It was previously held in Oita where a Colossal Titan peering over Oita Station met its match after Typhoon Goni knocked it down.
Captain Levi can also be spotted in railway restrooms throughout Osaka where he's tasked as the poster boy for a renovation campaign for the Osaka Loop Line.
