‘Attack On Titan’ Manga Finally Complete, Legal Action Will Be Taken Against Illegal Uploads

Published

on

Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama‘s finally submitted the draft for the final manga chapter. After nearly 12 years of publication, the critically acclaimed series is finally coming to an end.

The editor tweeted on the completion and thanked the fans for their support. “On Eren’s birthday, I received the final chapter of Attack on Titan. Everyone, please look forward to reading the chapter in the May issue of Bessatsu Magazine. Thank you for 11 years and 7 months of hard work Isayama-kun,” the post reads.

Publisher Kodansha hyped it up with a countdown campaign with digital wallpapers and interviews.

The anime recently concluded its season 4 based on the ‘Marley’ (chapters 91–106) and ‘War for Paradis’ (chapters 107 onwards) arcs from the original manga by Hajime Isayama. Recently, it was also reported that publisher Kodansha made it clear that its fight against manga pirates continues, and will be a worldwide one as well, as shown in a tweet from Shintaro Kawakubo, Japanese editor for the manga’s ‘Attack on Titan’.

There were rumors speculating on a possible plot twist. For those who have been keeping up with the manga, it is worth looking out for and the ending is not far.

All the more reason for Kodansha to take legal action to prevent leaks. This move is to actively stop illegal uploads pertaining to the final chapter ‘regardless of the country’.

“We’ve begun to take legal actions against several accounts & individuals. We’ll take measures against illegal uploads of images & texts regardless of country. Thank you for choosing our official products,” said Shintaro.

For the anime, Crunchyroll and Funimation announced the final season will be streaming ‘later this year’.

Isayama has spoken about his struggles to produce the ending in a satisfying way.

“It’s been a very long time coming, but I hope you can stay with me until the end. It’s been a very long time coming, but I hope you can stay with me until the end,” he said. The editorial never instructed him to stretch the story.

Attack on Titan tells the story of a world besieged by giant human-eating beings called Titans. The manga and anime both center around Eren Yeager, who lives in what is believed to be the last human stronghold.

Majority Of Malaysians Still Adhere To SOP, But Some Are Tired

Published

on

SHAH ALAM, May 18  –The recent viral on social media of pictures and videos of various quarters violating the prescribed standard operating procedures (SOPs) has sparked public outrage, especially with the high number of COVID-19 cases recorded in the country.

Nevertheless, majority of Malaysians are steadfast in adhering to the SOPs set by the government, which they have been doing since last year and has now become part of the new norms in their daily life.

Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) counseling psychologist Dr Fauziah Mohd Saad said this could be seen during the recent Hari Raya celebration which saw majority of the people complying with the government’s directive not to go on house visits.

“However, in terms of enforcement, there must be empowerment by the authorities such as by the management of shopping centres in controlling the number of patrons at their premises which should control the number of visitors,” she told Bernama.

A survey by Bernama at shopping malls in Shah Alam found there were not as many people at the premises as had been viralled on the on social media last weekend in conjunction with the Aidilfitri celebration.

A counselling and motivation expert, Hushim Salleh, opined that the SOP violation by some people was  because they had been under the movement control order for too long, causing them to feel restricted.

“They are suffering from pandemic exhaustion to the point of triggering psychological and emotional effects that bring to a level where they no longer care about the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Not that they do not know about the number of the COVID-19 infections and advice on complying with the SOPs as all the information can be obtained from their smartphones.

“It is the current situation that can sometimes leads to irrational thinking,” he added.

Selangor still recorded the highest number of COVID-19 cases with a total of 1,650 new cases recorded yesterday.

An expert in public health at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Associate Professor Dr Malina Osman regarded the SOP non-compliance by some quarters in Selangor, especially in Shah Alam, as the cause of the spread of COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, a survey by Bernama at the COVID-19 Assessment Center (CAC) at the Malawati Stadium near here found that the situation was no longer as crowded as was viralled on social media before.

This followed a decision by the state government in setting up tents outside the CAC for the convenience of patients and staff.
