The specialty print will be extremely limited in availability, with only 100 copies planned, priced at 150,000 yen ($ 1,449). It will contain the first two chapters of the series, and will surpass the current Guinness World Record holder for the largest printed comic. Currently, that award belongs to Monica’s class, which was created by Mauricio de Sousa Produções and published by Panini Brasil in 2018.
The series itself is fast approaching its end, both in the manga and in the anime production. The manga, written by Hajime Isayama, is scheduled to release its final chapter in April, which will bring the conclusion of a 12-year story in development. The anime is also fast approaching its end, though questions have been raised about how exactly it means to cover the rest of the story. With only 16 episodes announced for the final season, fans speculated that it would not have enough time to fully tell the story of the manga. Recent reports also suggested that Season 4 would not finish adapting the manga’s material, without a conclusive explanation on how or if the anime would continue.
The final season saw the production turned over to a different animation studio, transferring it from WIT Studio to MAPPA. In addition to adding different styles of animation, such as incorporating 3D for the Titans, the studio also altered the art. This was particularly noticeable for many of the character designs, even though the time jump also changed their appearance. The new style adhered more to Isayama’s art, although his style has changed dramatically since the original chapters. This is the style that fans will be able to see in the colossal size print, available to order starting March 6 with estimated delivery in May.
