Back in April, when Attack on Titan was making every fan cry over its last chapter, a message from Hajime Isayama had been posted. The message, “Our battle is only getting started!!” had sparked off a lot of speculation over the series’ potential spinoff.
However, now that the last volume’s release date is here, it looks like fans were on point to think that Isayama had another ace up his sleeve! This time, the belief that Attack on Titan has not really ended has taken deeper roots into the hearts of fans.
Attack on Titan’s Volume 34 is set to release on 9th June in Japan. To commemorate the release of the final volume, Isayama has drawn a manga panel-like illustration for Asahi Shimbun’s morning edition.
No one would have questioned the illustration if it had just been another shot of Eren and his friends. However, what jolted fans was that it was Eren in an isekai world. He had been reincarnated into modern Japan, and he can still shift into the Attack Titan!
As soon as he is reincarnated, he steps on some sort of frog monster as a titan, thus killing it. A bit of gag is hinted at as he then comments, “Did I just step on something?”
Is it possible that this is a hint to some sequel or spinoff series to Attack on Titan?
Volume 34 of the manga has been shipped in two different special editions. One is called the “Beginning,” while the other is titled “Ending.” Both of these come with a booklet in addition to the regular edition. The volume will contain the extra pages that were added to the manga.
Will these editions focus on different aspects of the manga? Or will they signal a new beginning? The only way to find out is actually reading the volumes once they’re out.
The theatrical version of Attack on Titan will be available for unlimited viewing as of now on dTV.
From a character book to extra pages, we are getting a treat after Attack on Titan ended. However, the question still looms, has it really ended? Or is Isayama plotting something to trap innocent fans again from behind his fans’ tear-laden spa?
