Hmm interesting. I just sure hope the manga doesn't end with a big question mark and answers most of the questions that fans are looking for.

Do you even have to ask? My concern is I remember Mr. Isayama saying the manga was ending "soon". 3 - 4 years is not soon...

At least that seems reasonable. I figured with how popular it is that it would get stretched out.

In my estimation this will mean that the manga could end up being between 100-112 chapters long if it continues to be monthly. That seems like a good size. Fullmetal Alchemist is 108 chapters long, and it turned out great. I hope Isayama does not screw the story.

I am more worried about whether all of the manga will be adapted into anime. The first season adapted 33 manga episodes into 25 anime episodes. I think that to adapt all the manga into anime, 2 more seasons (of 25 episodes each) will be required.

The big question is, will Attack on Titan be popular enough in 4-5 years (when season 3 could be airing) to warrant the production of that many anime episodes?

Hopefully by then the main plot will advance a little. Laughing

You can write dozens of volumes about human corruption.

He already did that when spoiler[he made everyone transform; well IMO when he made a single character transform it was ruined. Instead of using strategy/tactics and skill to win they just go all shounen and transform to win...pretty lame to me.] I wish they'd end it sooner

If Attack on Titan is still popular in 3-4 years, Isayama might end it, but I doubt the publisher will.

There will most likely be an Attack on Titan GT.

I'll fly to Japan myself and harangue publisher if it comes to that.

I'd prefer something end strongly as intended and preplanned over dragging shit out to make more money.

In terms of shounen series I'd say 3-4 years is considered "soon".
