Hajime Isayama, creator of Attack on Titan, was recently interviewed for the August 2016 issue of Japanese magazine Gong Kakutogi. Among the several topics he talked about, there is an interesting part where he addresses the ending of the series. As he revealed (and as many fans probably noticed due to the fast pace and intensity of the latest chapters), the climax of the story is approaching, and apparently, Volume 20 which will be released in August (and which will contain chapters 79-82) will include an epilogue important for the plot of the series.

Unfortunately I have bad news for all Attack on Titan fans. The last month I informed you that the long awaited Season 2 of the Attack on Titan anime was expected to be released at some point of this Fall, according to the official announcement from 2014 and interviews earlier this year with the production of the anime.

It's been 3 years since the first season of the Attack on Titan anime was released to tremendous success, and fans wait expectantly for the second season, confirmed since 2014.

1. When will Season 2 come out?
- UPDATE JULY 3, 2016: Wit Studio has confirmed that Season 2 will be premiering in Spring 2017.
On September 25th, Kodansha Comics revealed that they would make the "biggest manga announcement ever" regarding Attack on Titan at the New York Comic Con on October 8th, and we all were theorizing what it could be. The day has come and the revelation is here.
During the fall of 2016, Kodansha will publish Attack on Titan Anthology, a full-color, 250-page anthology of Attack on Titan short stories from a slew of artists and writers, including Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Michael Avon Oeming, Faith Erin Hicks, Kate Leth, Jeremy Lambert, and Rona.
The book will have the same trim size as an American comic -- larger than the traditional manga size. The stories will range from 5 to 25 pages, and the book will also include pin-up art. Take a look at Cam…Read more >
