To promote the upcoming release on August 7, Kodansha has posted a 15-second CM for the latest 17th volume of Hajime Isayama's popular manga series Attack on Titan, narrated by kids speaking in the Kansai dialect. The volume's 1,058-yen limited edition comes with the 1st volume of the Kansai dialect version and nine-type of clear bookmarkers printed with the characters' famous lines in various Japanese dialects, for example, Koushu dialect for Levi and Hakata dialect for Erwin.
I decided to read ahead of the anime. Won't spoil folks. Around Ch. 44, the identities of the armored and colossal Titan wasn't delivered well. The supposed hints and motivations only came after the guys blurt out their secret identities. I was pretty disappointed how the answers came out compared to Female Titan's reveal which had more dramatic build and hints sewn in the story as it progresses.
Weird how Crunchyroll only has Ch. 58 and onwards.
Got up to Ch. 71: They cleared a major hurdle in the plot. Getting to the bottom of Eren's mystery - why he has the Titan power, what happened to his father. It was cool seeing Levi adn Krista's backgrounds coming into one. Krista's fate with Eren is more interwoven.

Decided to finally catch all the way up to this. I admit it's better than I thought. It looks like we might have just started the Final Arc, but that probably means there's still 2+ years left of the manga.
Heard the author was going to end it around 20 volumes. I agree with you.
Attack on Titan is another series whose original plot or tagline goes off-kilter. Examples of manga series that relate to this series for me was Deadman Wonderland and Soul Eater who deviated from their original plot points.
Great to see you here. (During my last weeks of summer, I was catching up on manga series) Since it's a monthly series, I don't know when it updates. Wished the legal sites have little notifications for their queue section. When it comes to anime, it's weekly and it's easy to follow the schedule.
I was surprised that Hanji has an ambiguous gender in the manga while in the anime, I could have sworn Hanji had a female gender.
Well they had to choose between a male or female voice. This is pretty common in Shounen in my experience. Pitou from HxH, Crona from Soul Eater, Joa from Toriko. They're all Gender Unknown. Well Pitou technically has references to male but you see what I mean.
Taka: When I first got Disney Plus last year?, it didn't have a lot back then either. I think they added some new movies especially new ones. Like HBO Max and the defunct DC Universe, they are trying to focus on newer exclusive shows instead of building their

Taka: pre-existing library. Wreck it Ralph is worth it. The sequel might not be as good but it's still fun to watch.
