Attack on Titan: While the finale of the anime will have to be discovered in 2022 at the end of part 2 of season 4, the conclusion of Attack on Titan is already known in manga form (published by Pika Edition in France). However, its author, Hajime Isayama, admitted that he was not totally content with it and that he will use Volume 34 (the last) to lengthen it by several pages.
The end of Attack on Titan continues to make people speak about the fan base a month after it was published in Bessatsu Shônen magazine. The discussion rages on between those who admit to being satisfied with the finale and those who lament some creative choices, and it does not leave its author, Hajime Isayama, unaffected.
Attack on Titan: Hajime Isayama apologizes for disappointing fans
During an interview with Kdansha (which has since been taken over by the Attack on Titan account), the manga artist admitted to having “closely monitored fan reactions to his final chapter.” And he didn’t disguise it; the negative criticism made him feel bad, “He thinks the manner he illustrated this chapter was misunderstood.” Armin, for example, is opposed to the massacre. He considers the manner he sketched it to be immature and hasty.
“He understood that the climax was a step that was incredibly tough for him to draw,” he says, “and he fully understands the audience’s regret because he himself considers not having lived up to the event when completing Shingeki no Kyojin.” He regrets not being able to express himself adequately through the manga.” If “he felt he could satisfy everyone with this final chapter” at the time, Hajime Isayama now apologises for “disappointing some.”
The end will be lengthened of Attack on Titan
Is this an overreaction to a popular ending? Possible. When confronted with this misconception, though, the mangaka is ready to (slightly) alter his conclusion. While the ” Bessatsu Shônen magazine only permitted it for a maximum of 51 pages for its final chapter of Attack on Titan,” Hajime Isayama now “intends to include 8 additional pages in the last volume,” which is set to be released on June 9 in Japan.
An incredible decision, but one that will allow him to ” sketch what he couldn’t at the moment.” However, don’t hold your breath for a new ending. Furthermore, Eren’s father should use these boxes to fill in a few gaps and enhance specific character reflections in order to provide legitimacy to their actions and emotions.
