A recent report confirms that the Guinness World Record has officially recognized the large-sized printing of the "Attack On Titan" manga as the largest comic book published. Manga publisher Kodansha has been holding this record since April 13, 2021.

The manga volumes are 1 meter tall, 70 centimeters wide, and each weigh around 13.7 kilograms. The first two chapters of the manga were printed this way and only limited to 100 copies. They were immediately sold in just two minutes when it was on sale to the public last March.

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. 

"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.

The manga has also 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, the 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.
