Everything You Need to Know About the Attack on Titan Manga
The Attack on Titan manga by Hajime Isayama was a true success even before it was adapted into an anime.
In fact, in December 2019, it sold more than 100 million tankobon copies in print, not only in Japan but worldwide. This earned Attack on Titan the title of one of the bestselling manga series of all time.
The manga also won awards like the Harvey Award, the Attilio Micheluzzi Award, and the Kodansha Manga Award.
The success of the manga paved the way for the anime, novel, spinoff, and live-action series to be made.
Other forms of media such as guidebooks and drama CDs have also been released.
Fans about to watch the anime's very last episode may be wondering; is the Attack on Titan manga complete, or ongoing?
What's the Current Status of the Attack on Titan Manga?
The Attack on Titan manga is completed, so you can dive in and binge it immediately.
The dark fantasy manga was first released in 2009. It ended its eleven-year publication in 2021 with Chapter 139 as its final chapter.
Before the finale, it was announced that the manga would get a full-color serialization, which delighted fans.
Overall, the success of Attack on Titan’s manga is remarkable. Six of its seven volumes were published in English in North America and were part of The New York Times Manga Best Seller list several times.

On the other hand, it's satisfying to know that every character arc has been completed and fans won't have to wait for months or even years for more chapters.
The franchise is still growing, and more people continue to love Attack on Titan years after it has ended. As such, there is always a possibility for more types of media to be made in the future.
Critics have claimed that what made Attack on Titan different from other anime and manga is that it showcases the “hopelessness felt by young people.”
