In a recent interview, Hajime Isayama was asked how much is left in his Attack on Titan manga, which debuted back in September 2009 and has become a massive hit, spawning anime, and live-action adaptations. According to Isayama, there’s about five percent left in the manga before it will end its run. The upcoming anime is touted as the final season, so I imagine they’ll end at the same time.

When asked what’s next (via News Gamme), Isayama said, “I’d like to do something like a dark comedy. But more than that, I want to open a sauna.”

About three years ago, he really started enjoying saunas.

He’s even drawn the Attack on Titan characters sweating it out in a sauna.

The show created this artist’s rendition to illustrate his dream. The sign reads “Attack on Sauna” in Japanese.

The illustration is just a TV gag, so don’t assume that Isayama, if he does open a sauna, will open an Attack on Titan style one!

So at the risk of getting the series spoiled, how fascist is the series? I’ve read on here (through comments, not an actual article) that the writer of AOT is fairly nationalist and right wing and that the series later on reflects that. How bad is it and is it still worth watching/ reading for someone like myself who never got past the first season.
