Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama recently submitted the draft of the final manga chapter. His popular manga series will be finished after an eleven year publication with the upcoming release of Chapter 139, and to prevent leaks, Kodansha has taken legal action.
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.
