Attack on Titan, Vol. 1

In this post-apocalytpic sci-fi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming mankind. Seemingly unintelligent, they have roamed the world for years, killing everyone they see.

    Everyone is going nuts for the anime and I even started the first episode though got distracted halfway through and stopped watching for some reason and never went back. What I watched though was pretty much scene-by-scene for what happened in the manga, though I'm not sure how long the anime stays like that.

    The other characters were practically faceless/nameless to me and completely forgettable, except for Mikasa (thanks, FREEBIRD.) She's a badass and should be the real main character,

    I guess a part of me wasn't really paying attention that this is dystopia, because I'm not a big fan of the genre at all and would normally just steer clear of it.

    So many people were talking about the manga and the anime though that I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and that's not always the greatest idea.

    I don't know,

    , just because it's so popular and I'd hate to miss out on something that turns out to be spectacular. No way am I reading all of it though if I just end up feeling the same way after three books. I'm glad it has its fans though and that a series that breaks the mold is doing so well, but I have a feeling this might not be for me.

    Honestly speaking?

    I dived in because I wanted to watch the anime, but felt the need to read it first... Then it just blew me away. I loved

    about this manga... the rawness, the gore... the action...the mystery... omg am just in awe and am eager continue it~~!!!

    I havent had a manga hold my attention for a while to such an extent (apart from usual obsession of those I keep up with xD)

    Ah~!!

    Formulaic? Crude? Amateurish? Appalling? Yes, definitely, all of the above. Make no mistake, this series falls squarely into the trash category. Not tongue-in-cheek-I-am-actually-so-above-this pseudo trash, but just plain trash. I mean, this guy tries hard but simply isn't the most gifted of artists. And yet - somehow - he has been able to capture the imagination of millions around the world with this story centered around an eerie mystery: Who are those "titans" that have nearly

    Formulaic? Crude? Amateurish? Appalling? Yes, definitely, all of the above. Make no mistake, this series falls squarely into the trash category. Not tongue-in-cheek-I-am-actually-so-above-this pseudo trash, but just plain trash. I mean, this guy tries hard but simply isn't the most gifted of artists. And yet - somehow - he has been able to capture the imagination of millions around the world with this story centered around an eerie mystery: Who are those "titans" that have nearly wiped out humanity? Where do they come from? What do they want? Apart from eating human beings, that is.

    People have known for more than a hundred years that the titans are out there, but they have buried their own heads in the sand, barricaded themselves behind high walls. Out of sight, out of mind. Now those walls are crumbling, and the threat can no longer be ignored! Thankfully, our young heroes finally take action - and as it turns out, countless young readers around the world can relate to the desire to restore human dignity and, yes, save the world: "Finally we can be useful," as Krista puts it just before the battle starts.

    A key element that makes

    so popular is its openness, I think: a wide range of meanings can be attached to those all-devouring "titans" that threaten the survival of the human species. Do they represent the processes of globalization? Corporate power? The mass media? The government? Or yet another oppressive development or institution? Once you have made up your mind, you'll probably find yourself cheering for our young heroes.

    WHOA. LOTS OF STUFF. I just watched the first few episodes of the anime recently, and this volume had so much action all packed into it! (around 6 or 7 episodes' worth).

    I think I'm going to take my time reading these, as I really enjoy being surprised by the show.

  • Mario

    I didn't think that this would be as good as anime (because anime is bloody fantastic), but it was. I loved the art style, characters and above all amazing and brutal story.

    My first manga, but it definitely won't be my last.

    This is my second time reading the entire series 'cause season 2 is coming to an end and the waiting for new chapters has become unbearable.

    Although i know exactly what happens next I can't help the shivers and the tearing up especially when I see characters whom I love and are no longer alive.

    The artwork is amazing and the plot is phenomenal I mean could I ever say something bad about shingeki? Hell no.

    The cliffhanger in the end

    The cliffhanger in the end brings back so many memories. Can a main character die so quickly??? Arghhh the feels <3

    Shingeki no kyojin is a manga for those who love to be amazed and shocked and fancy being bombarded with a million twists! The characters are so well written and interesting. Some even steal the show from the supposedly "main characters"

    One thing I can tell you. Isayama doesn't disappoint. He likes to make us suffer though and to break our hearts I suppose?

    Plus now I can focus more on different details.

    5 stars on goodreads a billion in my heart (yes I' ll be saying that a lot)
