The hometown of Attack on Titan author, Hajime Isayama, has staged a grand fan event to mark the opening of a museum dedicated to the celebrated Manga series.

Hita, on the southernmost of Japan’s main islands, Kyushu, was seen as the perfect place to host a museum to the series, which has sold 100 million copies since first publishing in 2009.

Japan Insider visited the stamp rally event that uses an augmented reality smartphone app at each location to bring moments of the story to life and even give insight to Isayama’s inspiration for series.

As well as the museum itself, Hita is home to all manner of Attack on Titan tributes such as a bronze statue of Captain Levi outside the main railway station and a recreation of the moment Eren, Armin and Misaka first saw a titan at Oyama Dam.

In other entertainment news, Henry Cavill signs on for Highlander reboot helmed by John Wick director.
