A campaign called “Universal Cool Japan” is being held in Universal Studios Japan, a theme park in Osaka until May 10, 2015. A new attraction themed on the 4 anime and games, “Attack On Titan”, “EVANGELION”, “Resident Evil” and “MONSTER HUNTER” has opened. One of the attractions with the most attention is the life-size “Titan” from “Attack on Titan”. They  reproduced the scene where the 15-meter titan that Eren Yeager transforms into and the 14-meter female titan fight.

Universal Studios Japan has provided various kinds of entertainment aside from the Universal Studios films. “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and “ONE PIECE PREMIER SHOW” of ONE PIECE have been popular.


“Universal Cool Japan” is featured on contents made in Japan, and aim to attract visitors from abroad with attractions of anime and games that are also popular abroad.
