Attack On Titan Manga – The End Is Near
This Friday, i.e., April 9th, will see Chapter 139 release in stores and online. It will mark the end of franchise after 11-and-a-half years of serialization. When Kodansha Comics announced the end of the manga back in January, the publisher revealed that the 34th volume of the manga will ship on June 9 in Japan. This volume collects several chapters and will also be the series’ last such volume. The manga creator Hajime Isayama said in a press release–
“I’ve been saying for the past eight years that it would be over in three years. And it looks like I’m finally going to be able to finish it. It’s been a very long time coming, but I hope you can stay with me until the end.”
Release Time And Spoiler Update
While we know the exact day that the final chapter of the manga will release, the specific timing is another matter altogether. It’s likely that the chapter will release Friday morning. However, it seems that spoilers for Chapter 139 are already showing up online, ahead of its official release.
