Konica Minolta, a Japanese technology company, has built two planetariums in Tokyo to display the stars above the city in a 360-degree screen theater. In May, these theaters added a new feature titled “Attack on Titan in the Dome: The Soldiers’ Starlit Sky,” based off the popular anime show called Attack on Titan.

Viewers at the show will watch as colossal Titans approach the screen from far away, set against a gorgeous backdrop of stars above the Tokyo sky at night. The theater added special effects to make the Titans’ approach feel and sound authentic to the audience. During the show, viewers have the opportunity to solve a mystery with three characters from the show using their smartphone. The winners of the mystery receive a limited edition sticker.
