Attack on Titan’s Hajime Isayama recently made his first trip to North America to be part of Anime NYC, the big convention with lots of announcements for some major anime franchises. During his panels delving into his past creating the Scout Regiment, Isayama revealed that he’s still struggling with the end of his beloved franchise and took the opportunity to apologize for how the conclusion turns out. Since many fans believe that the finale is quite controversial, the final installments of the anime will adapt these manga moments next year.
Without going into spoiler territory, the Attack on Titan finale definitely ends up holding its place as one of the more controversial endings in the anime world. This stays true to the spirit of the anime’s final season, as Eren Jaeger becoming a villain was a curveball many didn’t see coming. By acquiring the power of the Founding Titan and using that power to raise an army of colossal titans at his beck and call, fans shouldn’t expect a happy ending when it comes to the dark anime franchise. Given the amount of death and destruction the series has presented, fans need to pull themselves together to lose some big names before Studio MAPPA’s anime adaptation comes to a close.
Attack on Isayama
Isayama took the opportunity to apologize Attack on Titans ending, describing how he still doubts how he brought it all to an end, leading the audience in attendance to applaud the mangaka for the work he has done on the series and reportedly brought tears to the artist’s eyes:
“I want to express my gratitude to all the fans. I was not sure how to feel about the ending of the story. I had a very hard time and I apologize. I was carrying heavy feelings and was down for a long time, until yesterday when I met fans at the signing. Fans told me the ending was great and they loved the ending and it made me happy and coming to New York was a great experience for me. Thank you.”
