Attack on TItan promised fans its ending was on the way some time ago, and it seems the series is ready to make good on its word. Recently, fans turned their eyes to the series after its fourth and final season went live in December 2020, so now is as good a time as any to drop the finale bomb. The team behind Attack on TItan has confirmed the manga will end in April 20201 after nearly 12 years of publication.
Attack on Titan has announced that the final chapter of Hajime Isayama's series will be released on April 9th in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine. Meaning the 34th and final volume of the series will be hitting shelves in Japan on June 9th. The series announced the ending with a new visual teasing a shocking end for Eren:
Along with the confirmation that the series will truly be coming to an end in April, series creator Hajime Isayama also shared a statement about the series' ending with Comic Natalie, which helped to break the news in Japan, “I’ve been saying for the last eight years that I’d finish [Attack on Titan] in three years, and finally, it seems like it will be completed," Isayama began.
Elaborating further, Isayama ended his statement with, "It’s been a very long time coming, but I hope you’ll stick with me until the end. The editorial team never rushed me to finish the series, but I’ve been continually asked when will it end?' Thank you for waiting for me. I will do my best until the last page so you will feel satisfied with what you’ve read.”
With the series now confirmed to end in April, this also brings up some questions about how the anime's final season will come to an end given that its sixteen episode order will be wrapping up around the same time. So fans will definitely be feeling emotions across both mediums this Spring. But what do you think?
