Shingeki no Kyojin it closed its story definitively in the first week of June with the launch of volume 34. There we had the additional pages that did not become part of chapter 139 published a few months before and they left us an ending that opens the door for a continuation. Now, almost a month later, the author Hajime Isayama again referred to Levi Ackerman, one of the fan-favorite characters.
It is not the first time that he has spoken of him recently, since a few days after the premiere of the last volume he answered an unusual question: What would be Captain Levi’s favorite manga? Faced with the curious question, the creator of the Attack on Titan universe replied that his favorite work would be Vanity no map. A Spoiler poll, where there were 1,200 voters, found that 89% were unaware of its existence.
SNK readers can rest assured that at the end of the story Levi is still alive, even if Isayama’s real plan was for him to be one of those who ends up dying alongside Eren, Zeke, Hange and Sasha. Shintaro Kawakubo, an editor close to the author, spoke about the secrets behind the manga’s closure and confirmed: “Hajime said it’s okay to have a story where Levi dies”. Then, Why did this not happen?
Kawakubo He recounted what is behind each of the decisions they made and said that when discussing a death, they must be clear that it is truly significant. Then, when Ackerman’s ending was discussed, they found no justifiable reason to kill him: “If a character’s death is significant, so be it. We tried to find out if the death is significant from the perspective of the story. In Levi’s face, Isayama reconsidered his decision.”.
Yes OK Levi remains alive, it does not mean that he has not suffered. The captain saw his closest friends die in battle and was seriously injured after his battle with Zeke. But, without a doubt, he carried forward the vision that Erwin Smith had for years and we can say that it is enough to make his life worthwhile. What do you think?
