Haha, well I did hear it had sold out quickly but this is the first time I've heard of a magazine reprinting a chapter in the next issue. Anime hyper

It was short, but man oh man is Levi hawtttttt. *____* Really looking forward to when they get to the main story.

Speaking of out of stock.

Volume 11 (reg. edition) is still out of stock at Amazon Japan. And now, so is Volume 10.

IIRC, the final chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist ended up being printed for three issues straight.

Pfff, the best part is that its only 12 pages. And only a few of them even have anything to read in them.

Somehow the title of this article is kind of misleading.
I almost thought of "The prologue of shoujo version of Attack on Titan" if I hadn't knew about it.

Isn't it better written as "Shoujo Magazine Aria Reprints Attack on Titan Prologue"?

I think the depressing thing is that previous fans of the magazine are given the short end of the stick. I know I would be PISSEED AS HELL if my newest chapter of Zettai Karen Children was taken away from me by rabid AOT fans who can't share. I'm almost positive that more than one female fan purchased multiple copies, as this is unfortunately what happens in such situations...

I think it's unfair that they're like, "Oh, you poor things, we'll reprint the prologue chapter for you~" and then to other fans of the magazine they're like "Tough shit. We're not reprinting the issue. You get nothing."

Really? That's pretty amazing. Kind of funny because the only FMA volume I have is the last one. ^^;; Though I suppose it had something to do with getting a bonus when you showed them the book at the theater when going to watch the movie.

The final chapter of Evangelion was reprinted in the next issue of the magazine too.

It seems that Attack on Titan must be wildly popular for its copies of its manga to sell out so incredibly fast. I don't think I've ever heard of another title whose manga sold out as fast as AoT.

I wonder how that's the case? Perhaps the publishing company just didn't print enough copies in time?
