The final adventures of the Scout Regiment are set to begin in January of next year, telling the last battle between the Eldians and the Marleyians as a new force in Eren Jaeger and his Jaegerists has arrived to throw a monkey wrench in the proceedings. Now, to get fans hyped for the upcoming finale, as well as celebrate pop-up stores that will be arriving in Japan that will be selling Attack On Titan merch, Studio MAPPA has created new illustrations that take the likes of Eren Jaeger, Armin, Mikasa, and Levi and places them into stylish kimonos.
Pop-Up stores to celebrate anime franchises are nothing new in Japan, with the likes of My Hero Academia and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure recently establishing their own pop-ups that were filled with unique merch as well as games that patrons could participate in. It’s no surprise that Attack On Titan is doing the same, though an aesthetic change that sees the members of the Scout Regiment slapping on kimonos is certainly a new look for our heroes. Of course, “hero” doesn’t necessarily apply to all the characters featured here, as season four has seen Eren turning on his friends in order to enact the “Euthanasia Plan,” that would end the power of the Titans by effectively sterilizing the Eldian race.
Twitter Outlet Attack On Titan Wiki shared numerous shots of the kimono wearing members of the Survey Corps, brought to life once again by Studio MAPPA which has animated all the episodes of the last season of the dark series created by Hajime Isayama so far:

Attack On Titan’s manga ended earlier this year, bringing to a close the war between the forces of Marley and the Survey Corps, and while creator Hajime Isayama has mostly been tight-lipped about the series returning for a sequel, there are certainly hints in the final chapter that could open up brand new worlds. With rumors swirling that more Attack On Titan anime projects might be in the works, it definitely wouldn’t be surprising if this dark story were to make a return both in the world of manga and the world of anime.
