After 11 years, Hajime Isayama has finally submitted the final chapter for his hit manga series, Attack on Titan. And now the manga’s own editor released a stern warning to illegal uploaders and leakers. In a tweet, the manga’s official Twitter page noted that they will be taking legal action vs. anybody who illegally uploads the manga, or leaks it online.
To prevent said leaks, Kodansha has now started going after several accounts and individuals. They also noted that they will go after everyone who uploaded the final chapter, regardless of what country they are in. And to hammer that point, they even tweeted it in English.
Regarding illegal upload and pre-release leakage of Attack on Titan.
We’ve begun to take legal actions against several accounts & individuals. We’ll take measures against illegal uploads of images & texts regardless of country.
Thank you for choosing our official products!
