Hajime Isayama stated that he had finished the Attack on Titan manga in January 2021. In total, Kodansha compiled 34 AoT Volumes until June 2021. The good news is that Volume 35 is reportedly in the works and the canon will contain new illustrations by the mangaka while seemingly consisting of new lore from the franchise.

Manga Mogura RE broke the news on X by sharing a graphic relating to the upcoming Volume. Titled Attack on Titan Fly, the art book will contain 200 pages of colored illustrations by Hajime Isayama. Out of the 200 pages, the 57 pages of the Final Chapter will be completely redrawn. Justifying the fact that the upcoming book is dubbed Volume 35 are several leaks on Reddit.


Attack on Titan Fly is slated to be released on April 30, 2024, and is going to cost 20,000 yen in Japan. A source from Reddit also revealed that fans will get Mikasa’s scarf and Eren’s key as collectibles with the art book. It is unknown when the English translation will be released, although, given the track record of Kodansha USA, Fly is expected to hit the American market three months after its release in Japan, i.e., July 2024.

Hajime Isayama wanted to explore more of Levi Ackerman’s backstory

Levi Ackerman has been on the brink of death multiple times in Attack on Titan due to Hajime Isayama’s need to kill off his hero and the editor’s refusal for the same. Even at the end of the series, Ackerman is blinded by an explosion such that he spends the remainder of his years in a wheelchair. Apparently, Isayama got the last laugh over the editors.

Fans have seen and related to Levi’s journey to curb the Titan rampage beyond the wall. From being the son of a prostitute to a hardened soldier, the Captain had come a long way. Isayama had an idea about more backstory for the character as revealed during an interview.

Regarding Levi, I actually have something in my mind, but at the same time, I don’t know if I will be able to write that or not. For example, 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.”

Will Hajime Isayama cover more backstories of Levi Ackerman in Volume 35 of Attack on Titan? More information about the book is awaited.
