After debuting in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009, Hajime Isayama concluded the original Attack on Titan manga in April 2021. In June of 2021, the manga’s final volume, number 34, was released. The manga is being published in English by Kodansha Comics, and the 34th volume was released in October 2021.
While a theatrical adaptation of the manga had been scheduled for 2017, it was scrapped after the tragic death of 38-year-old acrobat Kazutaka Yoshino in a performance mishap.
In April 2013 the first season of the television anime premiered, and in April of 2017 the second season did the same. Part one of the third season debuted in July of 2018, and Part two began in April of 2019 on the NHK General channel in Japan.
