If you’re looking for a more classical interpretation of Attack on Titan, a new ukiyo-e design has been revealed that fits the bill. Taking inspiration from Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s Takiyasha the Witch and the Skeleton Specter from the Story of Uto Yasutaka, the limited edition piece is available to the tune of just 300 prints made.

Those prints will be available for the general public to purchase at a price of ¥66,000, which adds up to about US$498 each. Shipping is available worldwide for the prints, which will go live on the AKIHABARA PREMIUM COLLECTION website starting on February 25 at 12:00pm Japan Time. 

Check out a comparison between the Attack on Titan ukiyo-e print and its iconic inspiration along with some close-up shots below.

A video was released to showcase the process, from design to carving and printing:

Next up for the series is Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3, the first half of which will premiere on March 3 with a one-hour special. 

Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 streamed on Crunchyroll when it aired and the series is described like so:

Known in Japan as Shingeki no Kyojin, many years ago, the last remnants of humanity were forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that roamed the land outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dared to stray beyond the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive. Those within the city clung to the illusion of a peaceful existence until the day that dream was shattered, and their slim chance at survival was reduced to one horrifying choice: kill – or be devoured!
