The TV Asahi program reported the series had more than 38.3 million copies in print in 12 countries and territories in April. The manga's first volume was #1 on Nielsen BookScan's Top 20 Graphic Novel chart for June, and eight volumes of the series ranked overall. The series is currently nominated for a Harvey Award.
The earlier Attack on Titan television anime is being recompiled into two theatrical films. The first film will open on November 22. The second film, Shingeki no Kyojin Kōhen ~Jiyū no Tsubasa~ (Attack on Titan Part II: Wings of Freedom), will open next year. (The films are named after Linked Horizon's popular opening themes for the television anime.) A live-action film starring Haruma Miura is slated for next year.
