This is the staff’s letter to the fans:
"This world that did not exist until 2009 was made into words and pictures, given meaning, turned into a story, printed in the. First issue of Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, and serialized for eleven years and seven months by Hajime Isayama's hands," the letter reads. "By no means were they eleven years and seven months of continued good news. This series was visited by troubles, sadness, and goodbyes.
Even so, we believe that nothing is more valuable than people being able to share in emotions that cannot be put into words through a story. It makes us happy that we were able to feel that way with readers and partners by way of Attack on Titan. Though this series has come to an end, these memories are sure to always warm our hearts. Thank you for reading. Our battle is only getting started!"
