posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for MBS' Jōnetsu Tairiku documentary program revealed on Sunday that Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga is entering its final arc. Isayama will appear on the program on this week's episode on Sunday. TBS is streaming a video that also teases the manga's final arc.
Isayama previously stated in 2014 that he personally wanted to end the manga in about three more years. His editor Shintarō Kawakubo also said in 2014, "The serialization is slated to end in three to four years."
Isayama launched the Attack on Titan manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and Kodansha published the 26th compiled book volume in Japan on August 9. Kodansha Comics publishes the series in print in English, and it released the 25th volume on July 3. Crunchyroll also publishes the manga in English digitally as new chapters are published in Japan. The manga has 86 million copies in print worldwide.
The manga has inspired three anime series since April 2013 — the second part of the third season will debut in April 2019.
