What's the spoiler policy here? If people are going to contribute following the anime should recent/important revelations be spoilered?

Newest chapter (49) was great. Erwin being a badass, Armin being a hard-ass (nice face Armin), and an old friend from chapter 1 appears.

@rubberluffy: The main point of this thread is to be able to discuss the manga without worrying about spoiling it for anyone, so if users come in here without catching up first it's kind of their own fault.

Thankfully I've gotten back into the habit of reading manga (I've sorta drowned myself in probably 20+ ongoings, at the moment) to keep me occupied between waiting for new Titan and JoJolion chapters, since they're my two big ones. Only about 2 more weeks for the next Titan.

@Daniel_Newton: I have a question about the manga, after episode 24, what chapter takes place after that episode? I didn't read the manga only watched the anime.

@AnimeDefender: No idea, as I said in the anime discussion I'm not reading the manga. I'm sure someone else in this thread can tell you.

@AnimeDefender:

You can ask me b/c I read the manga side by side. Ep. 24 covered chapter 32: Mercy and 33: The Wall. Usually, the anime covers 1.5 chapters, so I guess episode 25 covers 33 and some of chapter 34.

@AnimeDefender:

No problem. That reminds me, I need to write those manga differences for Ep. 24 wiki page.

Oh, if you were wondering who was editing your comment and another guy's comment about Attack on Titan, that was me. I was just bored and saw you guys talking about the series in the Battle Thread.

Remember this sexy fan art?
Remember this sexy fan art?

No, it was the thread with you guys talking about how hot that Female Titan was and how much you want to marry it. All I did was stick another fan art in it.

Actually I'd say the anime has been averaging 1 or less chapters an episode for a while. Episode 24 used like 2 pages from 33 and changed most of 32. 1.5 seems to be a good number for a monthly manga because of the larger page count, FMA:B averaged that for most of its run. On the other side, the recently finished Blood Lad covered 30 monthly chapters in 10 episodes.

Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama revealed that he aims to complete his manga in 20 book volumes. Isayama mentioned this during a discussion with fellow manga creator Hiroki Endo (All-Rounder Meguru, Eden - It's an Endless World!) that East Press published in the November issue of the martial arts magazine Gong Kakutogi on Monday.

Isayama is a well-known fan of martial arts, and Endo's All-Rounder Meguru manga deals with the world of amateur mixed martial arts. Endo discussed the homage he made in the manga to a certain famous match, while Isayama talked about depicting fights in his own manga.

@Supreme Marvel:

Didn't they reveal the murderer of the 2 Titans in the anime? Unless you're not talking about Hanji's beloved Titan test subjects.
