Attack on Titan fan manga project “AoT no Requiem” have released a second chapter.
Hajime Isayama’s work Attack on Titan series ended on April 9 with the release of the final chapter 139. As expected, fans of Attack on Titan were not on the same page about how the manga series should have ended.
What is alternate fan ending?
There are many alternate popular endings to Attack on Titan series. One of the alternate ending is, Akatsuki no Requeim ending. It was one of the famous endings theorized by fans and now some fans are working together to not only produce an alternate manga ending but also an animation project.
“AoT no Requiem explores an alternate ending to the canon material. Based on the “Akatsuki no Requiem” music video, this doujinshi serves as a rewrite of the final three chapters of Attack on titan (137, 138, 139). It is one long chapter updated in parts, following the events of the previous chapters contained within the source material (1-136). AoT no Requiem is created by diverse fans who share a strong passion for Isayama’s work. Please continue to show support for the Attack on Titan franchise by following official release.”
