Attack on Titan has finally come to an end after 10 years and fans were quite sad seeing their favorite anime series reach its conclusion. However, to their surprise. Hajime Isayama will release an Attack On Titan volume named Attack on Titan Volume 35, which will accompany the series’ full illustration book. It will be released on April 30, 2024.
The next Attack on Titan volume will not be a full-fledged book. Volume 35 will instead be an 18-page booklet titled “Bad Boys” that will be included in the series’ first official art book “The Fly.”
While most of the fans anticipated that the new manga might be a means to fix the controversial ending, recent looks that were released of the manga suggest that it may focus on Levi Ackerman’s past.
Attack on Titan Bad Boy Manga
After completing his ten-year adventure, Hajime Isayama has decided to release a new art book titled Attack on Titan – Fly in April 2024. The book will include previously unseen artwork, as well as a brand-new manga one-shot. The chapter, titled ‘Bad Boy,’ will not discuss the series’ controversial ending. There are numerous rumors surrounding the plot, the most prominent of which is that Isayama will return to rectify the manga’s finale.
When the manga’s finale was announced, it sent fans into an uproar, and it was immensely controversial. Others speculate that the volume will serve as an epilogue, with the author providing updates on the future of Attack on Titan’s surviving characters.
Instead, new reports indicate that the one-shot manga will center on a well-known character from the original Attack on Titan series, Levi Ackerman. Levi Ackerman commands the Survey Corps’ Special Operations Squad and is widely regarded as the most formidable soldier in the Attack on Titan universe.
New Manga Will Focus on Levi Ackerman
Rough drafts of the manga have already surfaced online, before the release of the art book. Although it is difficult to understand what is going on, several dialogues reveal what and who the chapter will be about. Even if it is difficult to tell, the draft pages released focus on Levi.

Fans may see Levi with his mother at one point in the draft pages, but then there are other pages where he is alone. These drafts depict Levi in distress, surrounded by adults. The harsh climate of the Underground appears to be a theme in this new one-shot. Fans are excited to see how far this one-shot will go.
Isayama has stated on several occasions that he would like to go deeper into Levi’s character. With the series finale, he has had more than enough time to flesh out a story about Levi’s history that will delight viewers.
