Interviews with Araki Tetsuro, Asano Kyoji, and Isayama Hajime from the Funimation Season 2 Blu-Ray

The recently-released Funimation Blu-Ray set of SnK Season 2 includes the above interviews with Chief Director Araki Tetsuro, Chief Animation Director Asano Kyoji, and Isayama Hajime!

Some highlights of the three extensive interviews:

  • Araki notes that the season 2 OP is about the “essence of life and the history of humankind,” and the ED is based very much on Isayama’s personal preferences.
  • Araki gives special praise to friend and episode director Hirao Takayuki, whom he has known since they worked together at the studio MADHOUSE. Takayuki was responsible for the storyboards of episodes 30, 32, and 36, and served as Unit Director for episodes 32 and 37.
  • One reason for Ymir’s flashback being added early was due to a necessity for an additional half an episode worth of content after everything in the original manga arc was adapted. Araki also wanted to bring some resolution to Ymir and Historia’s relationship.
  • The penultimate episode, “Charge” (36), was quite a challenge for the staff to animate.
  • Isayama was apparently actually influenced by Hannes’ portrayal in the anime’s season 1, which led to his characterization at the end of this manga arc (Also end of season 2).
  • Asano states that Yamada Ayumi created all the side character designs for season 2. He had loved her work as animation director on the ACWNR OVA and decided to add her as a third animation director for season 2.
  • Maintaining the art quality as well as the “characters’ expressions and mannerisms” was of utmost importance for season 2. As such, they focused on perfecting those elements while allowing the action animation team to perfect all the battle sequences.
  • Reiner was the easiest to animate.
  • Asano’s top three scenes: 1) 26: Mike’s death. 2) 30: Survey Corps swoop in to save the trapped 104th. 3) 31: Reiner and Bertholt reveal their identities.
  • For Isayama, how the seiyuu portrayed their respective characters in season 1 had a significant influence in how he wrote their dialogues in future manga chapters.
  • Hosoya Yoshimasa/Reiner’s delivery of his identity reveal was meant to sound like he was “at a restaurant.” Isayama wanted to give him a standing ovation for how great the performance was.
  • Isayama’s top three scenes: 1) 26: Beast Titan’s appearance and Mike’s death. 2) 29: The 104th battle the small Titan inside Utgard castle. 3) 34: Eren and Reiner’s intense verbal argument.
  • Isayama thinks that they may have gone overboard/”too far” with Nanaba’s final moments.
  • Isayama felt that manga volumes 13-16 were when he was most disappointed with his work, but hopes that season 3 will wipe away regrets.
