http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-09-25/attack-on-titan-creator-aims-to-end-manga-in-20-volumes

The story says "IN 20 volumes" rather than "AT 20 volumes"... I do believe is AT since 20 more would be too much....I wouldn't mind though since that would be more anime episodes.... But I just don't see it happening since its monthly.

Also, is great to see, if he does in fact meant AT 20 volumes, that he wants to end the series as best as he can considering the enormous popularity and attention it has been getting worldwide

What do you guys think it is? "AT" Or "IN" ?

Remember to keep it spoiler free!

WOW that many!? That sounds amazing, but it seems like it could possibly drag on a bit.

6 more years??? I'll be twenty- nine years old when the manga ends.
I wonder if a possible third season will happen, anime wise.

Man. Isn't that a bit much? Attack on Titan is cool and all but I don't like it to drag on and on. I want it to be like full metal alchemist masterpiece.

Thank goodness, its not a Shounen Jump manga, THAT would really make it drag on and loose interest for everyone.

If it is IN 20 volumes, that means 11 + 20 volumes = 1 chapter (left to complete vol 12) + (4x20) chapters = 81 more chapters approx.

If it is AT 20 volumes, that means 11+ 9 volumes = 1 chapter (left to complete vol 12) + (8x4) chapters = 33 more chapters approx.

I believe it should be 33 chapters since that's roughly 3 years.... 81 chapters would be six and a half years...... Unless they plan to go weekly in the future which is crazy...

Either way, I hope they have enough to make 2 more seasons of Attack on titan.... Covering 12 volumes = 48 chapters + 1 of vol8 (if he in fact does end it at exactly 20 volumes) for a 25 episode series seems a bit complicated... (1st season covered 33 chapters with just a bit of filler .... So 49ch in a 25ep might hinder the story telling.... Of course, there is always a chance of a movie since its the most popular anime right now....)

A bit ? are we watching/reading the same thing ? Almost all of episode 24 was filler, not to mention the training.

I know it was filler... But considering the length of the series being 25 episodes 3/4 of ep 24, 1/3 of episode 22 and the trainning. It's not that much.... Compare it to other shows and you'll see my point. And, unlike other shows, if you don't read the manga you don't notice since the quality of work is high even on fillers.

Also, the parts of trainning did not extened the anime that much, since there were manga scenes that never appearedin the anime. So some fillers acted as replacements.

I think they meant "AT", because my Tumblr newsfeed have been ranting on, and on about how AoT and "Free!" is coming to an end. I'm just starting to get into it, and it would be nice to see the show go on for 5-6 more years, but it just doesn't seem like the logical output of it all.

Maybe they mean the ANIME and not the manga since FREE! ended yesterday and Attack on Titan ends this saturday.

Yeah, that seems about right, and I'm just hoping they add a new season because the show itself (planning on checking out the manga later), is quite phenomenal.

I'm only on episode 9, and it just seems to be getting better, and better as I process through it.
