Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime/manga series in the world right now, especially as the anime’s Final Season is currently airing and the long-running manga is soon coming to a close.

Given the series popularity, Hita City of Oita Prefecture–the hometown of series creator Hajime Isayama–has unveiled a bronze statue of Attack on Titan’s Captain Levi.

The statue was unveiled just a few days ago, and it is located in front of JR Hita Station, the main station of Hita City.

Plus, the three main Attack on Titan characters have already gotten statues of their own at Oyama dam.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) is a manga series by Hajime Isayama which started back in September 2009. The manga received an anime series adaptation which started back in April 2013.

The series’ premise is described as:

Today, the threat of the Titans is a distant memory, and a boy named Eren yearns to explore the world beyond Wall Maria. But what began as a childish dream will become an all-too-real nightmare when the Titans return and humanity is once again on the brink of extinction …”
