Madison Square Garden, also known as the “World’s Most Famous Arena,” is the home to many of Sporting and Entertainment’s greatest events. From holding the first-ever Wrestlemania to boxing’s greatest fights, as well as various concerts, it’s the United States’ own version of the Nippon Budoukan in terms of importance. And now, it’s getting its own Attack on Titan mural:
Kodansha commissioned the mural in celebration of the manga already having 100 million copies in print. And this milestone is a global one, and that is why they chose to have the mural in one of New York’s most famous landmarks. This also includes both physical and digital copies of the manga as well.
And to make it even more special, this happens on the same year as the manga’s own 10th anniversary. Mangaka Hajime Isayama launched the manga on Bessatsu Shounen Magazine back in 2009, and it never looked back.
The manga has become a global brand these days, with a very notable celebrity following. It even became a fixture on the New York Times’ bestseller list.
And with the manga already having 100,000 copies in print, it would be no surprise if it even doubles that milestone. Congratulations Attack on Titan!
