In a recent interview with Crunchyroll, Attack on Titan author Hajime Isayama talked in depth about various aspects of his manga, including whether he had planned any additional spin-offs for characters in the series, namely Hange Zoe and other members of the Levi Squad.
Talking in the interview, Isayama said that he has a backstory in mind for Levi Ackerman. However he wasn’t sure if he would be able to write that spin-off or not.
According to the author, writing a manga has become a difficult task for him.
“I have imagined what the story of Levi would be in my mind, but at the same time, whether I am able to output it, that’s a whole other story because writing a manga is a really difficult task for me,” Isayama told Crunchyroll.
He added that he didn’t have any plans of releasing any spin-offs for Attack on Titan at this moment.
Isayama had recently attended the Anime NYC in November 2022. At the panel the author almost cried as fans showed support for the ending of Attack on Titan.
The author was on the receiving end of hate from fans over the ending of Attack on Titan, and he was down in the dumps for a long time over this. He opened up about his feelings at the Anime NYC panel, saying that he still had doubts within himself about the ending, and he wasn’t sure if he was able to land it. This was something that made him struggle even now.
