Review by Kassilem
This volume consists of chapters 51-54. First off I have to say the cover for this volume is my favorite of all of them. The volume itself is more about the internal intrigue now brewing in the cities. It’s becoming much more political. At this point in the series however it’s needed, because more and more we are seeing that some of the external problem of the titans might have to do with the government, scary as that seems. The environment is becoming more nasty, and I’m beginning to wonder just how much involvement the government has. Could it be that the titans are not the real enemies here? I can’t guess because Isayama is so good at plot twists, but it would not be a new idea that humans have the potential to be the worst monsters. I’m really looking forward to the last volume. Once I finish that volume I don’t know how I’m going to handle not have more chapters to read. *Sad face*
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.
