Attack on Titan has been charging full speed into its final arc, and the story has been a wild one to say the least. At more than a dozen chapters in, the manga has killed off some favorite characters will revealing others' true allegiances. With so much happening, fans know it is just a matter of time before the manga ends, and it may come sooner than fans like.
Recently, the editor of Attack on Titan did an interview with Sakuragi Kenji, a Youtuber from Japan. It was there Kawakubo Shintaro talked about his work on the world-famous series, and the editor was asked how much is left of Attack on Titan.
As Kawakubo puts it, there doesn't seem like there's "much longer" to go at all.
As translated by SNK News, the editor had the following to say: "A long, long time ago Isayama-san kept saying, “It’ll end in three years” - it has been five or six years since then. But recently he can finally say, “It’s almost time to end this well.” This time, I really don’t think we have much longer to go. Everyone please anticipate it."
While some fans are upset by the series' impending end, others are glad to see creator Hajime Isayama ending it on his terms. The artist might have taken longer to reach this finale arc than expected, but readers have responded to it well. Now, the editor behind Attack on Titan is preparing himself to part with the title, and fans are making sure to thank him for all his hard work over the years.
