I still adore the story but am continuing to have a hard time trudging through the terrible art. This volume was difficult (Marco-related mainly), but full of plot furthering things and moved along quickly.
Review by Kassilem
This volume consists of chapters 14-18. The first half deals with the fight to seal the broken gate, which is dependent on Eren getting control of himself. The second half of the book is a flashback to the two years that the characters first joined the academy to become soldiers. Both were treats. The first half for the pride the reader feels and joy that humanity has had its first win. And the second half because we can see the characters in their series development when they were still raw with emotion to make a difference and do something about the life they must live and die in. There is already some clear character development happening. Artwork is becoming more tolerable for me as well which helps things along. I’m looking forward to continuing on with the series and seeing what the anime hasn’t gotten to yet.
Review by TheDivineOomba
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.
Review by benuathanasia
No me gusta. This one was almost entirely re-vamped flashbacks of stuff we already saw. In fact, I thought it was a misprint for a while because even the panels were the exact same as they were in volume 1 (I believe that's the correct one). It was just really lazy. I've seen other people say that it offers a different perspective, but no. I found that it's almost the exact same stuff regurgitated.
