At an event in the city of Oyama, Japan, a bronze statue was unveiled based on the manga legendary characters Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert. Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), written and illustrated work by Hajime isayama.
The statue recreates one of the most iconic scenes in the manga, and the structure of a dam was used to visually act as the wall on which the giant Titan was first seen.
In this case, it was Isayama himself who had the honor of cutting the ribbon for the statue's presentation. After this act, the renowned author took a moment to address a few words to the 200 guests at the ceremony.
""I am very grateful to have been invited to this important event. The statue is impressive. Actions like these drive me to keep working hard because it means that my work reaches and inspires many people around the world.
As for the manga, there is 1 or 2 percent left to finish it off. Wait till the end. "

Summary by Shingeki no Kyojin
A century ago humans were threatened with extinction when an unbeatable and terrible enemy appeared: the titans, gigantic monsters that devoured much of humanity and forced the few survivors to lock themselves behind high walls. Behind these walls stands Eren Jaeger, a boy who dreams of crossing them to see the outside world and who lives his everyday life with his parents, his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and his friend Armin Arlert.
One fateful day, however, humanity remembers its fate once again when a gigantic 60-meter titan appears in front of the first row of walls, protecting people from their most fearsome enemy. So Eren, Mikasa and Armin lose their home and all hope, while our protagonist takes an oath: His goal in life will be to destroy all titans. Thus begins a story of survival and war in which its characters must solve the mystery behind the existence of these terrible beings.
