The Attack on Titan manga is full of pivotal moments. However, few are as dramatic and important as the Rumbling. If you’re a fan of the Attack on Titan anime and want to see how it’s depicted in the source material, here’s what chapter The Rumbling happens in the Attack on Titan manga.
What is the Rumbling in Attack on Titan?
The Rumbling is a feared apocalyptic event wherein Eldia’s Wall Titans are let loose to trample across the Earth.
Much of Attack on Titan Season 4 revolves around the Rumbling, or the potential threat of it happening. However, the Rumbling goes back into the story’s lore and history, connecting back to the origins of the titans themselves.
Technically, the Rumbling refers to the Wall Titans trampling across the world, the majority of which will take place in Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3.
However, for this article, we’re referring to the specific moment when the Rumbling is first activated. The below video is the moment we’re talking about in Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2:
What Chapter is the Rumbling in the Attack on Titan Manga?
Attack on Titan’s Rumbling, as depicted in the anime, takes place in chapter 122 of the manga.
Chapter 122, as with the Rumbling’s anime episode, is titled From You, 2,000 Years Ago. However, the manga chapter focuses on Ymir’s flashback and her conversation with Eren before unleashing the Rumbling.
Chapter 122 concludes the 30th volume of the Attack on Titan manga.
There is a chapter of the manga called The Rumbling; number 131. However, this is not when the Rumbling starts and instead refers to the earliest incident of the Wall Titans destroying humanity – the Rumbling in action.
Chapter 131 will likely be the first episode of Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3.
What Chapter to Read the Attack on Titan Manga After the Rumbling
If you want to start the Attack on Titan manga after the Rumbling commences, you’ll want to read the series from chapter 123. In terms of manga volumes, this is the beginning of volume 31.
As mentioned above, the anime episode where the Rumbling takes place goes beyond the boundaries of the chapter. At this point, some of the story’s events are in a different order in the manga and anime.
The majority of chapter 123 focuses on the group’s first visit to Marley, as seen in the anime episode Dawn of Humanity at the end of Season 4 Part 2. After that, the manga returns to a similar storyline to the anime.
