The titans are taking over Singapore from Feb 19. Attack on Titan is the best-selling dark fantasy manga and anime series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama that has garnered a huge fanbase around the world. It is set in a world where humanity lives in cities protected by three walls from gigantic man-eating humanoids. The fantastical theme, unique plot and nuanced characters have made this anime a global cultural phenomenon – especially in Singapore.
Now fans can delve deeper into this fictional world at Attack on Titan: The Exhibition, organised by SpaceLogic at the ArtScience Museum. The start of the exhibition is happening after an 11-year publication run and the manga's recent conclusion that marked the end of an era. The fourth and final season of the anime TV series will also coincide with the run of the exhibition, making it quite a bittersweet experience for the fans.
Visitors can check out over 150 artworks by Hajime Isayama that range from the manga's earliest days to the present, as well as exclusive new pieces that have not been displayed anywhere else in the world. Get up-close and personal with Isayama's drafts and sketches of Titans, characters and objects from the manga from his archives, step into his thought process when creating this sprawling dystopia, and also experience a battle sequence set in the Great Titan Theatre.
