About the same in art quality as the first volume, which is to say -- not very good. This volume had some of my favorite scenes from the anime, and I particularly enjoyed reliving the appearance of Eren's titan, but overall it was very difficult to get into because of the dark and messy artwork. I do have to say that I felt a little bit more positively about Mikasa as a character after reading about her in the manga than I did watching her in the anime, as she seems a lot more fully developed.
Review by Kassilem
I think the artwork is getting better already. Or I’m just getting more used to it. This is where the story really gets interesting. The first volume had to set the story up. Then it ended on a horrific note which makes the reader have to continue reading just to figure out if what happened really did happen. This volume deals with the consequences and you’re teary eyed and about to wonder if you want to continue reading when the author throws you for another loop. Now you have to keep reading to figure out exactly what happened, because what you thought happened didn’t. I remember watching these events and hoping Eren would be back in some form or another, but even I wasn’t expecting what happened the first time around. I highly recommend this series to anyone if you read graphic novel formatted books.

This is a review for the first 14 volumes, because I read them all at once, in about three days. For the most part, each volume is like one chapter of this story, so it works.I really do like Attack on Titan - I started with watching the Anime, and finding out Season 2 won't come until 2016 - I realized I need more story, there is just too much odd stuff with this series, and totally heartbreakingly scary. Death is not sugarcoated. And people here die in horrible ways, usually by getting eaten by a Titan. The story is tight - the graphics are top-notch. Highly recommended if you are looking for something that is different, but grabs you, emotionally.The characters are well written, even the ones that are written as a comic relief (Sasha and her appetite for example). These are all emotionally developed characters, who grow from the begining of the series as fighting titans takes it toll (along with learning about corruptness of some humanity). These are not people who want to fight. These are people who do what it takes to survive and protect humanity.I think I like the anime better, but it might be because the color and sound adds a lot to the horror that is a titan. The plot between the two versions are almost the same, except for vary minor changes.
