Kodansha officially announced that Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan Manga will end in the May issue of “Monthly Bessatsu Shonen Magazine” to be released on April 9, 2021. In addition, the manga has more than 100 million copies in circulation! It’s going to be hard to say good-bye, especially since the manga started back in September 2009. The 34th volume, the last one, will be out on June 9, 2021.
In case you don’t know what Attack on Titan is about, you can read the synopsis below:
Hundreds of years ago, horrifying creatures that resembled humans appeared. These mindless, towering giants, called “titans,” proved to be an existential threat. They preyed on whatever humans they could find in order to satisfy a seemingly unending appetite. Humans were unable to effectively combat the titans which made them barricade themselves within large walls surrounding them. Those walls may as well be humanity’s last safe haven in the world. The manga tells the story of Eren Yeager, a kid who makes a promise to himself that he will eradicate every single titan off the face of Earth. He hopes that one day, humanity will once again be able to live outside the walls without fear.

Hajime Isayama also made a comment on the matter:
8 years ago I’ve said that the manga will be over in three years. Finally, I can finish it. It’s been a long time but I hope you will stay with us until the end. The editorial department kept asking when will it end. I’m sorry, it’s finally over. I will do my best for the final chapter so that you will be glad that you have read the manga
Even though Attack on Titan manga will end soon, anime watchers will have a lot of Attack on Titan coming up! Attack on Titan: Final Season is currently airing after all.
