Fort Worth and New York will be the only two cities in the U.S. to host an exhibition featuring the acclaimed international manga and anime hit “Attack on Titan.”
The gallery pop-up of work from series creator and artist Hajime Isayama represents the evolution of over a decade of storytelling that’s obsessed fans worldwide. It can be seen December 3-5 at the Anime Frontier convention at Fort Worth Convention Center.
“’Attack on Titan’ is one of the biggest manga series of the 21st century, and its ending is a tremendous moment for Japanese popular culture overall,” said show director Peter Tatara in a statement. “We’re honored and humbled to be able to share this moment with fans in North Texas, linking audiences in DFW with Japan for a remarkable celebration of Attack on Titan’s evolution, popularity, and legacy.”
“Attack on Titan” is an award-winning, New York Times-best selling manga series that was first released in Japan in 2009 and finalized its 11-year run last April. 
The manga hit led to many spinoffs, including novels, video games, and multiple anime TV series.
The exhibition celebrates the conclusion of the series’ 11-year saga. It’s positioned between last spring’s manga finale and the final season of the anime TV series, slated to arrive in January 2022.
The exhibit will take up 900 square feet in the center of Anime Frontier’s expo floor at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
“We’re very excited to bring the ‘Attack on Titan’ Manga Gallery to Texas,” said Kodansha USA Events Director Misaki Kido in the statement. “Rarely do fans in Texas get to take part in experiences like this, and it’s important for us to share this celebration with you, too. Texas is known for having a huge anime and manga community, and we want to recognize it by showcasing this testament to Attack on Titan’s meaning with fans around the world with fans at Anime Frontier.”
North Texas has plenty to see, hear, and watch. Here are our editors’ picks.
Mayor Mattie Parker, whose catchphrase is “Go Time,” says she coined the term for a reason. Fort Worth is at a pinnacle of possibility, and entrepreneurship is at the center of that. The data speaks for itself, Parker said: A new jobs report from Sparkyard shows startups play a significant role in job creation in Fort Worth and Tarrant County—with average salaries more than twice the minimum wage.
Global Entrepreneurship Week Fort Worth kicks off November 7-12 with an opening party, a pitch competition, a State of Entrepreneurship luncheon, and lots more for founders and entrepreneurs to sink their teeth into.
Solo Brands moves HQ from Southlake to Grapevine; tech-related leases take up 38% of Q4 activity in DFW; JPMorgan Chase gets a new Dallas office; and more news from North Texas.
Dallas-Fort Worth is a big draw for Gen Zers, too. This summer, CommercialCafe ranked DFW No. 4 among the 10 Best Metros for Generation Z.
