Surely you can see the similarity to Attack on Titan.

Below, of course, is an image from the Attack on Titan anime, featuring a Titan about to tear down the wall, so other, smaller Titans can enter and eat all the villagers.

Spotted by Twitter user Minami_Carapare, this giant Super Lucky Cat has been compared to Attack on Titan, getting nicknames like "Attack on Cat" or "Attack on Titan Nyan."

Dubbed Tokonyan, the maneki-neko is located in Tokoname, near Nagoya. It's a giant good luck cat that watches over the town! The statue is 3.2 meters high and 6.3 meters across.

The back is completely flat, because the statue backs up against a parking lot. This is a half-headed super lucky giant cat.

If you plan on visiting, there are clearly marked signs so you can find Tokonyan.

That is, if you have difficulty locating the giant cat head on your own.
