The hometown of Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama—Hita City, Oita prefecture—has been gradually filling out its roster of statues from the series to commemorate where it all began. Now, following statues based on Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, a new Levi statue was recently unveiled right in front of JR Hita Station.
The Levi statue was supposed to go up last summer, but COVID-19 concerns caused a delay. The final design was based on one of Isayama’s original drawings, and you can see its official unveiling below.

Here’s what Isayama had to say about the occasion: “He’s the most popular character who has helped sustain Attack on Titan for all these years; I owe him a huge debt of gratitude. I hope he’s pleased.”
We previously posted about the other three statues, which stare up at Oyama Dam to echo the first chapter of the Attack on Titan manga.
