Review by Kassilem
This volume consists of chapters 43-46. I can’t say how glad I am that I let my brother talk me into watching the anime that this series has begun to be converted to, which then made me read these manga novels. This is definitely up there on my list alongside Berserk. I’m gonna have to start buying these volumes and I only buy manga that I really really like and will read a million times again. This volume also ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. I should be sleeping but instead I am going to read a little more. I believe I am addicted.
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.
