Attack on Titan Creator Aims to End Manga in 20 Volumes
Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama revealed that he aims to complete his manga in 20 book volumes. Isayama mentioned this during a discussion with fellow manga creator Hiroki Endo (All-Rounder Meguru, Eden - It's an Endless World!) that East Press published in the November issue of the martial arts magazine Gong Kakutogi on Monday.
Isayama is a well-known fan of martial arts, and Endo's All-Rounder Meguru manga deals with the world of amateur mixed martial arts. Endo discussed the homage he made in the manga to a certain famous match, while Isayama talked about depicting fights in his own manga.
Kodansha published the 11th volume of Attack on Titan in Japan last month, and the series has now sold over 20 million copies. Kodansha Comics is publishing the seventh volume in the United States this month.
Re: Attack on Titan Creator Aims to End Manga in 20 Volumes
Given that we have almost finished what will be volume 12 (with the next chapter in 2 weeks) that leaves 8 volumes left and 35ish chapters. So it should end within 3 years unless they release more chapters per month. This news makes me more hopeful for a good ending if he already has it all planned out. Also lessens the worry of it ending up as one of those "rinse and repeat" series.
