The popularity of a work, be it a comic, book, or movie, can inevitably be measured by the revenue it brings. In the world of manga there are several stories that become popular each year, but there are very few that reach very high peaks. Attack on Titan - Shingeki no Kyojin is one of them.
Hajime Isayama's talent, Mangaka, who has published the work since 2009, was initially not recognized by Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, and this forced him to get featured in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine. From there step by step, The attack of the giants has scrapped copy after copy: Even before the WIT Studio anime, which debuted in 2013, the manga had a good number of copies sold.
More than ten years later and with the end of The Attack of the Giants, the publisher has released the new data on the manga's tankobon. According to the latest statements, considering both physical printed and digital copies The Attack of the Giants has a worldwide circulation of 104.7 million copies.
That number is sure to increase in the coming months, although the final work with Volume 34 is expected in June. The Attack of the Giants becomes one of the best-selling manga of all time.
Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan has 104.7 million copies (including digital) in circulation worldwide. The final volume 34 will be released in Japan on June 9, 2021.
