Attack on Titan Manga sales skyrocket after anime!

The Nerd Cabinet reports:

"Back in December 2012 the first 9 volumes had already sold more than 10 Million copies, which is pretty damn impressive for only 9 Volumes in all fairness.

An anime adaption started airing in April 2013 and is currently on its 9th Episode with another 16 to come with a possible OVA and a Feature Movie. Since the release of the anime the sales of the manga have skyrocketed up another 8.7 million in these few short months of the anime airing."

I'm definitely enjoying the show, though the first few episodes were a bit confusing story-wise. Episode 9 was a major game-changer so I might pick up a few volumes of the manga so I don't have to wait.

I know what you mean with Episode 9, it changed my whole outlook on the story, im debating buying volumes 1 & 2 :)

Since I saw this article and everyone's comments about it about 5 or so hours ago. I figured I should give it a shot, and now that I've just seen all 9 episodes so far I actually really like this series. And you're right about episode 9 lol I'm really eager to find out what happens next :)

Too bad both CrunchyRoll and FunAnimation fail to deliver the series to Europe and thus literally forcing plenty of people to download it by illegal means.

Which isn't that hard now that Funi and Crunchy do all the hard-work in translation and stateside distribution. Pirates can just rip their work.

But the fault probably lies in the developers or whoever sells the rights to show the show, themselves not understanding the western market.

For sure im getting the volumes

DivineHand1251845d ago

Of course it would. The anime is one of the best anime series of all time.

I agree to an extent, it all depends on where it goes from here, last episode really was brilliant, its all about how it plays out now, no doubt it is one of the best in years :)

Ive read the manga trust me its going to get better and better.

It could be but how they end it will really be telling for me. Anime based on monthly manga always have terrible endings if the manga is still ongoing so I'll be interested to see what they come up with.

Basically just like they ruined Blue Exorcist. What makes this show even better is the music by my favorite Japanese composer Sawano Hiroyuki.

Agreed, but some times the crying is a bit too much (for me at least). No offense...

Simon_Brezhnev1844d ago

I wouldnt call it one of the best of all time. It is pretty damn good though.

CanadianTurtle1844d ago

To be honest, I would've definitely picked up the manga a long time ago, had I known it actually existed. The manga is really good. It's just that no one really talked about it, therefore it wasn't as popular.
