Attack on Titan FINAL Exhibition Crashes Into Osaka
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Attack on Titan FINAL exhibition will head to Osaka on September 21 after finishing its run in Roppongi. The event has new key visuals for the upcoming event depicting the Survey Corps and Eren in Titan form exploring the area. One image shows the group enjoying some well-earned peace in the Hirakata Park amusement park and another shows Eren looking like he's about to full-fist punch a rollercoaster.
The Attack on Titan FINAL in Hirakata Park will run until December 1. A temporary "Reeves Company Store" will open at the park with over 150 items for sale, some new to the Osaka exhibition. A collaboration cafe will also run during the duration of the exhibition.
The local Keihan Electric Railway is celebrating the upcoming exhibition with large-scale advertisements at its train stations. The Kyōbashi Station's main stairway is covered with Attack on Titan artwork including its two flanking pillars. A commemorative train covered in Attack on Titan artwork will also bus travelers to Hirakata Park.
The exhibition opened in Roppongi on July 5 and is displaying Isayama's drafts from the last 10 years including unreleased content. Long-time manga fans will want to attend for a chance to hear the manga's final chapter as part of the "Sound of the Final Story" exhibit. Visitors can check out a 20-meter screen and full-scale diorama showcasing the world of Attack on Titan. An audio guide featuring the voices of Yuuki Kaji (Eren), Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa), Marina Inoue (Armin), Daisuke Ono (Erwin), Romi Park (Hanji), Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi), and more was created for the exhibition.
This is the first exhibition to contain original art from the series in five years. The last exhibition to do so was the "Attack on Titan Exhibition WALL TOKYO" that was held at the Ueno Royal Museum in 2014.
Isayama launched the main Attack on Titan manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and Kodansha published the 28th compiled book volume in Japan on April 9. Kodansha Comics publishes the series in print in English, and it released the 27th volume on April 9.
The television anime of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga premiered in April 2013, and its second season premiered in April 2017. The first part of the third season premiered in July 2018, and the second part premiered in April.
