Scheduled to publish its final chapter next April, the manga written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), is already a mainstay of the contemporary manga industry, and has even maintained its great base of fans in their jump to animation. However, much is known about the work, but little about the author himself, and the Japanese portal Mantan Web published an article compiling some of the most interesting data.
“When Isayama-san was 19 years old, he took his manuscript to Kodansha Publishing House, marking the birth of Shingeki no Kyojin. The draft was received and reviewed by Shintaro Kawakubo, who would later become the editor-in-charge of the work throughout its serialization. Kawakubo-san expressed at the time that he quickly noticed Isayama-san's "greatness". "Although the level of drawing was nothing extraordinary, I could feel that he was putting all of himself into every image he made." Other than that, he has never made a single complaint to me in these eleven years of serialization. I've never heard him say "I'm going through a difficult time" or "I have no idea how to continue with the story", so I feel a bit useless in that regard. Of course, we've had meetings and ideas have come up during them, but as long as Isayama-san has been behind the desk, he hasn't complained once. I think he has enough confidence in himself, and he does not ask for advice from anyone, "continued the editor.
The final season of this adaptation premiered in Japan on December 6 at 12:10 p.m. (strictly on December 7 at 12:10 a.m.), while in Latin America it arrives through the Crunchyroll platform and individually in Mexico. through Funimation, with Spanish dubbing. Finally, it is confirmed with a total of 16 episodes.
