SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN News: NOT SO LONG AGO SOME INTERESTING IDEAS WERE PUBLISHED ABOUT HOW THE STORY OF SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN’S MANGA COULD FOLLOW
While the Shingeki no Kyojin anime will continue early next year, the manga is another story. Hajime Isayama already showed readers how things will end.
Although it seems that this mangaka was not entirely satisfied with how he closed this work. At least that’s what some leaks suggest, but talking about it would fall into the realm of spoilers. It is something that we will try to avoid as much as possible in this note.
THE END OF SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN DOESN’T CONVINCE FANS
This is why some suggest that there should be a sequel to the series. Especially because there are things that could be told better, especially in regards to Ymir and Eldia, which would allow the introduction of new characters with different motivations.
A continuation could also show more about everyone involved, and give them the proper background. Especially the relationships that were given over time.
But something that has disappointed some is that the characters who survived the outcome of Shingeki no Kyojin were not rewarded for their efforts.
Others believe the Titans theme should stick with new ideas from Isayama and a creative team. The latter seems difficult, since generally the manga are the work of a single author. Ultimately, the decision to continue rests with this mangaka.
SOME IDEAS ON HOW THE STORY OF THE SERIES COULD FOLLOW
There are also those who ask for a better resolution for the fate of characters like Mikasa and Levi Arckerman, as well as Armin Arlert. Something that could help a sequel is the jumps in the narrative.
That’s something Hajime Isayama does very well at, and he proved it on more than one occasion. So the idea that a continuation can be handled in that way is valid. To all this, what does the mangaka himself say?
From what the author of Shingeki no Kyojin commented, his original plan was to finish the series and dedicate himself to other projects. There was no mention of a sequel.
Unless he has changed his mind in that regard, nothing can be expected. Certainly, some facts from the manga could lend themselves to that, but it is not at all certain. The article where these ideas are mentioned points out that inspiration from the real world is not lacking, but it is something very speculative.
