We are already in the final season of Attack on Titan for its TV anime adaptation. And now, after a very successful and historic 11-year run, Kodansha has announced when it will all end. The final chapter will be inside the pages of the May 2021 issue of Bessatsu Shounen Magazine. That issue will hit the stands on April 9, 2021.
The announcement fulfills mangaka Hajime Isayama’s promise a few years ago that the series will end in 3-4 years. And with the date set, it looks like he is keeping that promise. Isayama has emphasized that editors did not have a hand in extending the manga. He also hopes that fans will enjoy the series until it finally ends in April.
The manga now has over 100 million copies in circulation worldwide. It has been quite the global success since the anime first premiered in the spring of 2013. The series has inspired the TV anime, various OVAs, and a live-action movie project, as well as a few video games and mobile game crossovers. The Final Season is currently airing.
