This volume has much less action in it then the previous volumes but important transitions happen instead and Eren’s life or death is determined. Something that this series gets right as well is portraying the unfairness of the world. Some things have unintended consequences and things have to brought back into balance even if that means people die at the hands of fellow humans. The rich and influential win, while the weak and poor, and usually innocent, lose. I see some of this in the series, which makes it a realistic world and thus pulls the reader into the story further. I’m still enjoying seeing this story again in GN format and am looking forward to catching up and continuing with the part of the story that I am unfamiliar with.

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.

This volume significantly made up for number 4. It didn't really favor any one character too much (even Eren got no more than his due diligence) and it took a rather unique and unexpected twist (not twist, as in "SURPRISE!" but a direction that I could not have foreseen). There was a strange and intriguing development in this volume that promises to be elaborated on in volume 6, so I'm very much looking forward to that!
