“Attack on Titan” Exhibition replaces humans with food in advertisements

A special exhibit that will feature the works of Hajime Isayama for the “Attack on Titan” (“Shingeki no Kyojin”) anime series will debut next month at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo, but the graphic nature of the aforementioned Titans have resulted in some self-censorship.

Natalie reports all the advertising visuals are now decorated with images of big food. These images were subject to some slight alterations because they originally showed “shocking imagery” of the Titans preying on humans. The posters read “voluntary restraints” and feature the Titans eating food like hamburgers and fried chicken.

This new visual presentation is to open November 28th, a week after the first “Attack on Titan” compilation movie opens, and will showcase the author’s original concept art for the series as well as drawings made exclusively for the event. At the high profile exhibition, there are plans to include a life-size version of the manga’s Colossal Titan and the ability to step into the world of “Attack on Titan” with a unique Oculus Rift viewing experience.

Further development of the anime version will only begin once Volume 15 of the manga is released, scheduled sometime for this winter which could mean a second season by August of next year. Additionally, Two live-action movies for the critically-claimed anime series are also in the works and are due for release sometime in 2015.

The exhibit is currently slated to run from November 28 to January 25th at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo.
