The University of Tokyo Newspaper posted an interview with Shintarō Kawakubo, the editor of the Attack on Titan manga, on Wednesday, where he discusses the popularity of the series, and is quoted as saying, “The serialization is slated to end in three to four years, but Attack on Titan is a work that will be passed down from generation to generation for a decade — no, five decades.”

Hajime Isayama’s manga depicts the battles between humans and the giants who now rule the world outside humans’ walled enclaves. Isayama launched the series in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and the manga now has over 36 million copies in print, as well as several spinoff series, in addition, of course, to the popular anime series.
