A French publication, VF, recently published an interview with Attack on Titan manga author Hajime Isayama, where he teased that he will only start thinking about his next work after a proper rest.
@LKRjaeger, a Twitter user shared the scanned version of the interview in French with the snippet which reveals the author’s plans after the end of Attack on Titan.
A part of the snippet translates to in English as:
“Right now, what I’m dying to do before thinking about my next job is to take a midday stroll through a not-so-quiet neighborhood with a glass of sake in hand. For me, that is what freedom is, ” said Isayama.
The author doesn’t say anything else about the project, but he previously mentioned that he planned to take a vacation when Attack on Titan: Shingeki no Kyojin was finished.
Isayama is currently involved in the production of Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2. Since the manga has finished serialization, the mangaka is involved more in the production.
According to director Yuichiro Hayashi, Isayama’s feedbacks have gone from being one A4 page long in Final Season Part 1 to two A4 pages long in the current season.
During an interview by News Gamme in 2020, Isayama revealed he would try his hand at some dark comedy. But, before that, he added he would like to open an onsen for himself.
