Fans have the opportunity to admire two brand-new Attack on Titan murals in New York and Los Angeles.
Crunchyroll has painted two large murals in New York and Los Angeles to commemorate Attack on Titan's Final Season Part 2. The murals will be up until Feb. 6, and those interested can check them out in person, as well as watch the behind-the-scenes video that documents how they came together.
The New York mural is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at the intersection of North 10th Street and Wythe Avenue, while the Los Angeles mural is in West Hollywood at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and North Martel Avenue. Fans who see the murals are encouraged to take pictures and post on social media using the hashtag #AOTCoastToCoast. The murals act as a celebration for Attack on Titan's ongoing Final Season Part 2, which will conclude the long-running popular shonen.
Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin, is a Japanese shonen manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. It began serialization in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine and ran from September 2009 to April 2021. The story takes place in a world where humans live in settlements surrounded by three massive walls meant to keep out giant man-eating humanoids called Titans. The story's protagonist, Eren Yaeger, is still a young boy when Titans breach the wall, destroy his hometown and eat his mother. It is then that he swears to one day exterminate all Titans.
In 2013, the manga was adapted into a 25-episode TV anime produced by Wit Studio that ran from April to September of that year. It was followed by a 12-episode second season from April to June 2017. The 22-episode third season came out in two parts, with the first part airing from July to October 2018 and the second part airing from April to July 2019. Finally, the fourth and final season, produced by studio MAPPA, premiered in December 2020. The 16-episode first part ran from December to March 2021 and the second part premiered in January 2022 and is still ongoing. Other adaptations include novels, video games and live-action shows.
Attack on Titan has become a critical and commercial success throughout its run. It is the recipient of several awards, including the Kodansha Manga Award and the Harvey Award. The series is also one of the best-selling manga of all time, having sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
The murals are only up for a limited time, so fans are encouraged to see them before they go.
