It featured a bunch of celebrities going through the Final Exhibition and Q&As from Kawakubo and then Isayama.
Stuff from the interview with Kawakubo:>He thought the art was too rough when he first saw the original manuscript for SnK, so he had Isayama reproduce the entirety of the first chapter of Hajime no Ippo so he could work on his action scenes.>Isayama used to have trouble drawing right side faces, so he would draw the expressions from the left side on the other side of the page, and then turn the page again to draw the face from the correct side. There are still times when he draws at the back of the pages even now, but it's usually for big occasions.>The chapter that made SnK's popularity explode was chapter 42 "Warrior" (RB reveal). Isayama wanted to do a reveal that would be different from Annie's.
Q&As for Isayama:>Q: What was the impetus to start drawing fake previews?>A: He didn't intend to draw omake pages at first, but he felt like he had to make up for it with some kind of illustration, so he did the one for volume two where it says "Our fight starts from here". It seems lots of people at the time thought the manga got straight up discontinued. So he thought it'd be interesting if he drew a completely made up preview for the following volume.>Q: What is Isayama's favorite fake preview?>A: Definitely the School Caste series, which he really loves. It's only two pages per volume but he puts as much time and effort into them as he would for 5 pages of the main story.>Q: What's the most noteworthy point about School Caste?>A: The fact that it might be a development that was linked to the main story. He literally just thought right now that he should just go ahead with it.>Q: What's Isayama's favorite gag from the manga? (the celebs had to actually guess what it was)>A: Connie's "Eren no Ie Gaaaaaa" worldplay from RtS.
