During an interview with Crunchyroll, creator Isayama talked about his love for Game of Thrones and how he enjoyed the first season the most. He explained how he and his wife enjoyed the series. Isayama’s love for history is keenly reflected in his love for Game of Thrones and also he developed his manga around such historical events. He said:

“I watched all of the first season and really enjoyed it. Even compared to the first season of the original Game of Thrones, it was well done. I like Aemond Targaryan. I think that character’s face looks really good, as an actor. I was watching it with my wife and she’s not really about the gore scenes, so she was looking away. And so she asked ‘Oh, what happened? [I said] ‘Oh, you didn’t watch it? Here, let me rewind it for you!’. She got really mad at me.”

While talking about the story development and the final season of Attack on Titan Isayama also explained the importance and impact of the historical events of Attack on Titan. He explained how the design of the world in history helped him develop the layout of the manga. He said:

“I think where there’s a hint of truth, it makes a story very believable. So when I came up with the design of the world view—for example, the world view map, I kind of flipped it from the real-life world map to something similar, but different. People would be able to understand the context without explaining everything. For example, the Eldian and Marleyans. They’re really kind of similar to what the Germanic people and Romans went through 2,000 years ago. That’s kind of the unsaid rules that I keep in my stories.”

Although Attack on Titan‘s plot has made a lot of impact on the increasing fanbase of the series, creator Isayama feels that if he had a way to change this, he could have made it perfect.
