Experience 'Attack on Titan' in a whole new way with special planetarium screenings this summer

This summer, two Konica Minolta planetariums in Tokyo – the “Tenkū in Tokyo Skytree Town” theater in Oshiage and “Manten in Sunshine City” in Ikebukuro – will be showing special screenings of an "Attack on Titan" story made for the planetariums.

Fans of the wildly popular manga and anime series are sure to remember how it all began “that day” when the titans breached the city walls which protected them.

That day, the human race remembered the terror of being dominated by them, and the shame of being held captive in a birdcage…

That birdcage, being the walls protecting the city, is now the walls of the planetarium as the audience becomes part of the story itself. The show, titled "Shingeki no Kyojin IN THE DOME ~Heishitachi no Hoshizora~" (Attack on Titan IN THE DOME ~Soldiers’ Starry Sky~), utilizes the planetariums’ 360-degree layout and intense surround sound acoustics to fully bring viewers into the story, in a new retelling of the hopelessness of that day.

Showings at Tenkū in Tokyo Skytree Town will run from Saturday, May 20 until Sunday, October 1. Showings at Manten in Sunshine City will start the following week on Saturday, May 27 and run until Sunday, October 29.

A special weekday-only event will also be held at both venues during those dates, in which you can use your smartphone to play a riddle-solving game along with characters from the anime, Eren, Levi, and Armin. Those who solve the riddle will win special limited-addition stickers.

Show schedules can be found on the planetarium websites, here for Tenkū and here for Manten. Ticket reservations can also be made online up to 14 days in advance.
