Attention, anime fans! An Attack on Titan musical is coming to New York City.

The series announced the coming show on social media, writing that AOT fans can catch it at the New York City Center from October 11 to 13.

"The Titans are coming to New York City," the post read. "Witness the thrilling tale of ATTACK on TITAN: The Musical live on stage at the New York City Center this October."

Ticket presale has already started through Crunchyroll from May 29 to June 2. General sales will follow afterward on June 3.

According to Crunchyroll, the show will feature a mix of "conventional musical theater techniques" with technology. 

The musical will star Kurumu Okamiya, Sara Takatsuki, Eito Konishi, Shota Matsuda, and Kazuaki Yasue.

This won't be the first time the musical inspired by the anime is running as it first took the stage in Japan, with the script written by Massafumi Hata and music by KEN the 360. It ran at the Orix Theater in Osaka and then later in Tokyo in 2023.

ICYDK, the Attack on Titan anime, based on the manga by Hajime Isayama, is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the last of the humans retreat to a fortified city to escape the huge, man-eating Titans that roam outside. A century later, the threat of the Titans becomes a distant memory. One day, 10-year-old Eren Yeager horrifically witnesses the giants return suddenly.

Watch the trailer for the musical below.
