Isayama's Editor reported that they started taking legal actions against "several accounts and individuals" from illegally uploading any content pertaining to the final chapter of Attack on Titan. Kodansha said that they will pursue illegal uploaders "regardless of country" for both images and text.

The final Attack on Titan manga chapter is slated to be published in the May issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine releasing April 9 with the 34th and final volume shipping June 9. Kodansha has also started a 10-day countdown campaign with interviews, Q&As with Isayama, and wallpapers released every day.
