Tokyo Dub Agent, which is the company behind the ukiyo-e, will have them available from the Akihabara Premium Collection site. The ukiyo-e depicts the main characters from the Survey Corps as they face off against the Colossal Titan. There is also a trailer showing off close-up details of the art, as well as a peek at how the artists brought the scene to life.

As for the art itself, it draws inspiration from “Souma no Furudairi,” which is a famous ukiyo-e art by artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi. Utagawa Kuniyoshi drew this piece during the Edo period (specifically the 19th century). Real modern ukiyo-e artists have worked on the Attack on Titan piece.

Ukiyo-e is a traditional Japanese art genre that was popular throughout the 17th to 19th centuries. Popular ukiyo-e subjects include folk tales, landscape, sumo wrestlers, and erotica. Artists usually used woodblock prints or paintings to produce their work.

Pre-orders for the Attack on Titan ukiyo-e will open up on February 25, 2023, and it will have a limited print run of 300 global units. Attack on Titan is readily available to stream via Crunchyroll and Netflix, with the first half of the last arc of Part 3 airing in Japan on March 3, 2023.
