‘Attack On Titan’ Manga Ends
Hajime Isayama's manga series "Attack On Titan" has ended with its final chapter released on April 9 in Japan. Fans were emotional, especially those who have been following the manga on its twelve-year run. Some have mixed opinions on the ending, saying that there could be a possible sequel in the works. As of press time, there has been no announcement so far regarding this possibility.
The manga also has paved the way for an anime adaptation which debuted in the Bessatsu Shonen Magazine on September 9, 2009. The anime adaptation's first season premiered on April 7, 2013. The manga was such a massive success in Japan that it had won awards such as the Kodansha Manga Award, Harvey Award, and the Micheluzzi Award.
The anime series ended with its 75th episode on March 29, 2021. A 76th episode, titled "Judgement," was confirmed during the 75th episode airing, and it's scheduled to air in Winter 2022. There is still no word if the anime will follow the manga's story or it will be altered to its own anime plot. However, with the pacing of the final season, it seems to be following the former.
"Attack on Titan" tells the story of Eren Yeagar, who lives with his foster sister Mikasa Ackerman and his best friend Armin Arlert in a town that is adjacent to Wall Maria. The huge wall covers the whole town as a way of protection from the Titans, the giant creatures that eat humans. Various troops or legions are tasked to protect the citizens from these Titans using special maneuver gears that can hook on walls and use to travel or cling to one part of a Titan and attack them.
Fans are definitely looking forward to what the franchise has more in store. For now, the entire fandom is still trying to process the fact that the main manga series is now finished.
