    Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    The following 'sum up' of Shingeki no Kyojin's story was given by a former employee of Kodansha who was working closely with Isayama in an interview on a Japanese manga forum in June.

    Whether you guys choose to believe this or not is up to you, however, it makes sense given the information that was given to us about the story so far. Also, the website containing the interview was taken down, and the employee, fired last month.

    The following text contains massive spoilers (even for those who read the manga) about the truths of the story's world and how it will end. You were warned.

    Spoiler show

    Re: MASSIVE SPOILERS about Eren's father being a shapeshifter, the story's world and how it will end (translated from Japanes

    I wouldn't be too worried if I were you. There are bound to be spoilers regarding this all over other Japanese threads despite getting the source deleted. (After all, the rest of the world apparently gets a full English translation.) Although this is coming from me only, I haven't seen anything in Japanese threads that remotely resembles this so far.

    Also, unless Kichirou Moto is a temporary name, it is such an ambiguous and (for the purpose of this manga) mostly meaningless name for a final boss, lol. As far as I know, the names of the current characters are all very meaningful. In fact so meaningful that Isayama got into a little crisis with the Korean media partly because Mikasa is (most likely) named after the Battleship Mikasa of Imperial Japan.

    On the off chance the name is actually real, then I'll be a bit disappointed with his decision. Also, if the story of ex-employee is true, some part of me does hope Isayama wouldn't follow through the same ending that has already be spoiled, I wonder if he would actually change it. Though I'd rather he does what he likes for his story, who knows. As far as I can tell, the 'summary' sounds like some fanfic that tries to not contradict with the currently revealed plot.

    I would've thought, even the pilot chapter is probably closer to the truth than this

    Problem solved!

    Not going to believe this one seeing that:
    A - You have no proof of the validity of this, you just claim without any evidence and just present a story.
    B - There have been COUNTLESS of people claiming "Story has been leaked!" in manga general.Naruto,Bleach,One Piece etc there are always "Leaks".And they are always wrong.
    C - The story is heavily,hugely nearly completely influenced by the Norse, where is the influence of that in the "leak"?
    D - Kichiro Moto....seeing that the setting is clearly european I highly doubt this.
    E - I've seen this posted like dozens of times, on Youtube comments, on Animesuki, on NF that it's clearly just seeking attention.

    To me it is obviously just a fake leak, AoT is getting so much attention that naturally some trolls are attracted.

    Besides, it's impossible for stories to be leaked as no Author can plan to the end due to Editors.

    Also, Imma change the Title.

    Not saying you are, but the one who originally came up with this.

    Also, Imma change the Title.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RpBKOQxOB4

    This is the video where I found out about this. Also, the video description used to have a link that takes to the forum where is the interview, but like I said the site got taken down and the link no longer works.

    I don't know if this true or not, alright, but it looked highly credible to me especially considering that the website got taken down not long after that was posted.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    Well yeah, but anyone can come up with "The Link is gone", especially since it's mighty convenient for the creator of this "leak".

    Anyway, I won't tell you believe it or not, that's entirely your choice but what I can do is advise you not to take this serious , as I said, there have always been Manga Leaks, and not once have they been true.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    that spoiler is too simple to be true "He was able to develop a mutant potion that could be introduced into the water supply so that it would turn humans into enormous, but mindless killers" i have seen this kinda scenario but i dont remember where so it seems copied and fake and too easy

    and why find a vaccine to prevent further titan mutations when you need to save the humans and instead why not some mass titan killing drug that could be spread through the air instead lol

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    This is the same thing another forum member posted a while back except he posted a youtube video with some guy saying this stuff. There is no way the story is getting leaked this easily though.

    The biggest flaw with the theory is the idea that humanity posed a risk for titan shifters. Unless humanity had seriously advanced technology back in the day it makes no sense that they would ever pose a threat. Even then, if shifters could be eliminated by humans then normal titans never would have been a threat to begin with even with high numbers. Normal titans are stupid and incapable of planning or countering per say, how could they pose a threat to people capable of disposing of shifters?

    More so, the more recent chapters imply eren might have eaten his father while this theory says he was disposed of for whatever reason.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    I saw part of this posted on another forum, and read the rest at the youtube link (at the time). I found it too simple-sounding to be believable, and it was already suspicious that the source isn't even named with a nickname or described some more. Like someone said above, editors have a lot of influence regarding how stories are drawn, but I doubt many others get the details of where the story is headed. No editor is going to risk getting kicked off of a great cashcow like this story either.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    And don't forget that they all probably had to sing a non-disclosure agreement, so I really doubt someone started revealing the story even if they did get fired/in an argument with Ishiyama.

    But I do have to say, it's pretty well thought out, for a scam.

    I'm guessing Ape titan would be Dr. Kichirou Moto.

    It was in series 24 and Batman Begins. You have seen it a few times probably, but only because it is an efficent way to spread such...things, not because its fake and gay.

    Still, let's say there were only 20 or so titan shifters at that point, versus like, 200 000 people with canons and shit.. Of course, the shifters would overpower them by far at first, but in a battle of endurance, who knows.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    Except that it is not possible for them to have been so few titans that long ago. Remember the walls? Their entire range is almost entirely filled by titans apparently. Thats at least hundreds if not thousands of titans 100 years ago.

    ---------- Post added at 03:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:04 PM ----------

    Unless they somehow tamed normal titans every titan within the wall is currently a shifter that is just sleeping.

    Re: Potential Story Leak - Beware of Spoilers.

    I know this thread is a couple months old but in light of recent chapters does anyone have any new thoughts on this? At first I had some feeling it could be true (mainly because nothing disproved it) but it looks a lot more and more fake now, all the mysteries it answered were from the chapters before it's release. Surely if it were a "real" spoiler it would have mentioned the coordinate or why they need Eren so much? "Dr Moto" would have no interest in Eren other than killing him or getting him on his side according to the 'leak' which suggests he is nothing more than a Shifter. We now know they wanted him so badly because of the coordinate power. It sounds more like a good theory on it at the time not an actual leak.

    Also I'm not sure if anyone's thought about this but surely if this Dr Moto was the Ape-Titan, he can control Titans? Why would he need to build a defends against the then?
