These special limited edition Attack on Titan Plum Wines and Attack on Titan Plum Juice use fruits which come from Isayama’s hometown of Ooyama in the Hita district of Ooita prefecture. What makes these drinks even more special is that some of the plums used come from the orchard of Hajime Isayama’s parents. Now ain’t that special?
