(Spoiler warning for the Attack on Titan manga.)
In the lead-up to Japan’s release of Attack on Titan volume 20, author Hajime Isayama commented that this volume would lead the series into its climactic phase. His last update on the manga’s progression in September 2015 had it pegged at 60% complete, and editor Shintaro Kawakubo concurred that the series had three years to go after six years running, at that point, since its launch in 2009. If it’s still on track, this would suggest there’s roughly two more years to go before the end. If so, chapter 85 in the October issue of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine has taken a titanic step towards that end in finally revealing the secret of what’s in the basement.
If you want to find out at your own pace and read the latest chapter for yourself, Crunchyroll will update their simulpub today (September 8th) at 5:00pm PST, which makes it midnight tomorrow for the UK. Otherwise, read on at your own peril.
