Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isaya revealed in an interview with White-Screen.jp that he's been evolving his manga, which includes adding new elements.
Either way, I enjoyed the show.
solid anime and manga. i would be sad to see a quick ending, but also i wouldnt want to see bleach or naruto story stretching. each manga chapter has so much in it, and the story and atmosphere is very unique. i think this manga should have up to 200 chapters and thats it.
That is a good way to look at it, and while I have watched the anime, I will try and read most of the manga soon as well.
Oh dear. This sounds like fame has got the better of him.
Sound more like its going to be another one of those unnecessary long mangas.
well previously he said he wanted it to end around vol 20. For a monthly series thats pretty good. FMA ended with 27 volumes and 107 chapters Soul eater ended with 25 volumes and 113 chapters. Even if the ending changed I cant imagine it will be much longer than either of those series.
Talk about selling out...
traumatizing ending sounds like he was gonna kill off a bunch of characters. Which would be interesting to see how it turned out. I'm guessing the ending will be more light hearted now with a majority of characters making it out alive. I guess we will just have to see how it turns out. It might even turn out better. However once its over I want to know how it would have originally ended.
Tbh, I was expecting a traumatizing ending. What makes Attack on Titan so great for me was the fact that anybody could die and it wouldn't be all that surprising. At the very least, I hope he compromises with a bitter sweet ending.
Personally, I'm betting on one of two things. a) Because of the massive reception the series has gotten, his editors have leaned on him to stretch the series out as much as possible, meaning he had to abandon his original plans. OR b) The actual ending supposedly leaked earlier this year thanks to a former assistant (the person being a former assistant is known to be true, but as to if they really did know the ending or not...), and he needed to dramatically change it as a result.
