In Japan, the Attack on Titan exhibition has already been shown in Tokyo, Oita City and Osaka, creating significant attention and attracting a cumulative total of over 400,000 visitors.
Taipei is the first city outside Japan to host the exhibition.

Haruma Miura, who played the lead role in the movie Attack on Titan, attended the exhibition’s opening ceremony. A large number of Taiwanese fans packed the exhibition venue to witness the tape-cutting ceremony.


A former tobacco factory, the site was redeveloped to create the SSCC. The building hosting the exhibition was originally the factory’s Warehouse No. 1. While the exhibition is faithful to the content of those held in Japan, several original displays have been added.
These include a message to Taiwanese fans from Attack on Titan author Hajime Isayama, and the autograph of actor Haruma Miura, who visited the exhibition. In an annex at the venue, fans are able to experience the Attack on Titan world by using a head-mounted display, which provides a 360-degree surround view. This part of the exhibition is called “Roar,” and has proved particularly popular with local fans.
