A life-size bronze statue based on the character Levi Ackerman from the Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) multimedia franchise was placed in front of JR Hita Station in Hita City in Oita Prefecture, the hometown of the author of the work, Hajime Isayama.
Isayama commented on this: "He is the most popular character and many times he has carried Shingeki no Kyojin on his shoulders, I am indebted to him, so I hope that he will be satisfied with this." Furthermore, Levi is the fourth character to be modeled on a bronze statue in Hita City. Statues of Eren Jaeger, Armin Arlert and Mikasa Ackerman in their infantile forms were previously placed. The statues were financed by a campaign carried out between August and October 2019, which raised more than 29 million yen (about 267 thousand dollars).
For its part, Isayama began publishing the manga in Kodansha publisher's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in September 2009. The publisher published the thirty-second compilation volume on September 9, followed by the thirty-third on January 8. The work will come to an end in April.
The final season of this adaptation premiered in Japan on December 6 at 12:10 p.m., while in Latin America it arrives through the Crunchyroll platform and individually in Mexico through Funimation with Spanish dubbing. Finally, it is confirmed with a total of sixteen episodes.
Shingeki no Kyojin Synopsis
A century ago, humans faced extinction when an unbeatable and terrifying enemy appeared: the Titans, gigantic monsters that devoured much of humanity and forced the few survivors to confine themselves behind high walls. Behind these walls is Eren Jaeger, a boy who dreams of crossing them to see the outside world and who lives his day to day with his parents, his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and his friend Armin Arlert. However, one fateful day, Humanity remembers once again its destiny when a gargantuan sixty meter titan appears before the first row of walls that protect humans from their most fearsome enemy. Thus, Eren, Mikasa and Armin lose their home and all hope as our protagonist takes an oath: his goal in life will be to destroy all the titans. In this way, a story of survival and war begins in which its characters must unravel the mystery behind the existence of these horrible beings.
