This Is How Attack on Titan Made It in the Guinness World Records
Back in March Kodansha came out with some limited edition Attack on Titan manga that were big enough to be read by a Titan. Each manga weighed about 30 pounds and was 1.01 meters tall and 0.71 meters wide.
To no one’s surprise, this turned out to be the biggest comic ever made, and now it’s been officially certified by Guinness World Records.
Only a hundred copies were made, and though they cost a pretty penny at 165,000 yen (about $1,500), they were sold out within minutes. The fact that they’re now record holders will probably make them only go up more in price if anyone wants to sell what they own.
