Attack on Titan goes viral thanks to politician’s salvation

There are all kinds of anime fans around the world, and few series represent this truth like The attack of the Titans. The franchise is one of the largest in anime to date, so its fan base varies wildly. Young or old, the demographics behind The attack of the Titans are wild when you study it globally. And now a South American lawmaker is going viral after honoring anime at work.

The moment was caught on camera when Chilean lawmaker Consuelo Veloso made her first vote in the Chamber of Deputies. The vote was filmed to commemorate Veloso’s great achievement, and she even ended her vote with the The attack of the Titans hi for good measure.

Of course, fans of The attack of the Titans will know this salvation by heart. Erwin and Levi made the gesture famous when the anime debuted. The first season taught fans the importance of devoting their hearts, and The attack of the Titans carried over this salute into season four. And so, there was no better way for Veloso to channel his constituents to work than by devoting his own heart to them.

This moment isn’t the only one that shows just how alive anime is in Chilean politics. Last week, the country’s president-elect Gabriel Font went viral when he hosted a Japanese minister in Chile. This is where the video captured the president-elect receiving a Pokemon toy to celebrate his victory. In the past, other politicians in the country have gone viral for similar reasons, such as Pamela Jiles who filmed herself doing the naruto running to celebrate the passage of a COVID-19 relief bill.
