A main visual for the upcoming Attack on Titan: The Musical was revealed on October 21, 2022. It shows the Training Corps and Survey Corps members led by Erwin Smith seemingly just about to engage in one of their signature suicidal battles against the titans.
Nothing less is to be expected from the peculiar characters with even more peculiar mindsets… and we wouldn’t want it any other way, anyhow.
Take a look:
Attack on Titan: The Musical is set to premiere at Osaka’s Orix Theater on January 7, 2023. It will run for three days at the venue (January 7 to January 9, 2023), after which it will move to Tokyo’s Nippon Seinenkan Hall (January 14 to January 24, 2023).

About the Attack on Titan manga series
Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人, Shingeki no Kyojin) is a manga series by Hajime Isayama, which was published from September 9, 2009, to April 9, 2021, debuting in the first issue of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine. The 139 individual chapters have been collected into 34 tankōbon volumes.
Shingeki no Kyojin is so popular that it even got a “Colossal Edition,” an omnibus extra-large (7×10.5 inch) size edition printed on premium-quality paper, which is a first, even for Japan.
There are 6 Colossal Edition volumes in total, each of them featuring five original volumes of the series in addition to extra color pages never published before.
In November 2020, it was announced that Attack on Titan would get a full-color serialization, which is a rare occurrence and reflects the manga’s popularity.
Kodansha USA has licensed the series for the U.S. and has published all tankōbon volumes in English. Volume 1 was out on June 19, 2012, and Volume 34 was published on October 19, 2021. Colossal Editions are up to Volume 6, which includes tankōbon volumes 26 through 30.
The Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 anime TV series is confirmed to be coming out in 2023, with the exact date yet to be specified.
The latest Shingeki no Kyojin anime season ended in a cliffhanger, so we can’t wait to see the anime going down in history as it deserves. Stay tuned!
