Un gigante che compare dal nulla distruggendo le mura della città. Quel giorno, l’umanità ricordò il terrore di essere controllati da loro... l’umiliazione di vivere come uccelli in gabbia. Tutto accadde 107 anni fa. L’intero genere umano... tranne pochi… fu divorato dai giganti. Tutta quella gente finì direttamente nello stomaco di quegli esseri. Fu così che i nostri ante ...more

WHOA. LOTS OF STUFF. I just watched the first few episodes of the anime recently, and this volume had so much action all packed into it! (around 6 or 7 episodes' worth).

I think I'm going to take my time reading these, as I really enjoy being surprised by the show.

Honestly speaking?



I didn't think I'd love this manga SO MUCH

I dived in because I wanted to watch the anime, but felt the need to read it first... Then it just blew me away. I loved everything about this manga... the rawness, the gore... the action...the mystery... omg am just in awe and am eager continue it~~!!!

I havent had a manga hold my attention for a while to such an extent (apart from usual obsession of those I keep up with xD)

Ah~!!

I don't know man ... I finished this and started on the second volume and I feel like this might be one of those instances where I just don't get the hype. I also don't understand how this is already up to 11 volumes when (some spoilers for volume 2 as well) (view spoiler)

I don't think the art is particularly

I didn't think that this would be as good as anime (because anime is bloody fantastic), but it was. I loved the art style, characters and above all amazing and brutal story.

My first manga, but it definitely won't be my last.

4.5 Stars!
I have always felt that the giants in fiction today are starting to become bumbling, stupid fools that just happen to be oversized and love destroying things, stripped of the fear they held around them a long time ago. So whenever I see this wildly popular manga series online or in the bookstore, I think nothing of it and pass by it. That is, until the anime adaption started airing this year and I saw the opening. And that opening was just so glorious that I just had to at least try ou

In the future overly simplistic stories exploring the Japanese xenophobic mindset will bore you with their complete lack of imagination! The evil Titans (or, “foreigners”) threaten the tiny human population (or, “Japanese”) by eating them (or, “consuming their culture”). The humans live in medieval-type castle structures with multiple layers of walls that don’t work to attempt to protect themselves from the Titans who want to eat them for some reason.

Our hero is the perpetually constipated Some

There's a lot of hype surrounding Attack on Titan, though a lot of that is for the anime version. I've never seen it, and after reading the first volume of the manga, I don't know if I'll bother.

Attack on Titan is based on a solid premise: a century ago, man-eating giants, called titans, suddenly appeared and attacked humanity en masse. Now, the remaining survivors live inside high, thick walls, and have generally given up on defeating the titans. So far, so good. And what the manga does best i

Story
I knew I'd enjoy the story coming into it, because I watched this anime already. I decided to check out the manga because the series ended in a terrible place and there is currently no plans for another series/second season.

There wasn't really anything I didn't know from this book. The first two stories or line up with the first few episodes of the show. The manga skips over most/all of the training however. I'm not sure if the people who did the show added all that in to give the charact

Nije loše za početak - intrigantna distopijska priča, dobra grafika, interesantni likovi.
Na nekim mestima je pomalo zbrzana radnja, ali sve u svemu jedva čekam nastavak :D

I'm currently OBSESSED with the Anime and I NEED to get my hands on this!
Yasiru (reviews will soon be removed and linked to blog)
Below is my original review, but having caught up I wanted to add that I finally realised why I was drawn to this in such an apprehensive way- it's because the series taps directly into the Evangelion centres of the brain. That may not make much sense if you haven't seen Neon Genesis Evangelion (something of a badge of honour and a trope/trauma codifier series when it comes to subconscious-tapping secrets being uncovered in the course of a desperate struggle against a powerful but to initial app ...more

I love it when the mom is all: "DID MAH SON COME BACK ALIVE" and the commander is all: "HERE I BROUGHT YOU HIS ARM, TAKE IT."

Way to let her down easily, man. Levi has more tact than you. And he does! BECAUSE HE'S BEAUTIFUL.

When does Levi show up?

I am not a huge fan of the art, but this story is so compelling and cruel. I think they will run out of people to kill very soon...

omg, es war als manga einfach auch so mega genial :D richtig richtig toll :))

I don't get it ó_ò

This is some nasty art. As in ugly and awkward. Okay, so the artist is young and a newcomer, but still. The main characters try their best to look typically manga (slim build, huge glittery animu eyes, not much variation in the overall design and the unisex uniforms don't help much either), but the ugly, aggressive lineart just really destroys it for me. Facial expressions often look distorted to an unintentionally satirical degree and I've had trouble keeping a lot of characte

It's been quite a long time since I was this hooked on a manga series. Attack on Titan is incredibly awesome. It possesses the qualities that I'm looking for in a good series. I was never a big fan of shounen but this is just too good to ignore and let slip away. It is shockingly intense and terrifying, however, it has certain unique elements that can draw the the reader's attention into this world.

I initially watched a couple episodes of the anime, but honestly, I couldn't just sit for a whole

Like so many manga stories, I'm going to have to read this again, and perhaps again, to make any sense of what's happening--beyond the obvious evil giants attacking walled city. It might be my middle-aged brain, but there is something in this form of story-telling that I find continually disorienting. Still, I've ordered the next two volumes and definitely plan to keep up with this engrossing, surprisingly violent (as in people getting bitten in half by giants) story.

This fucking manga is everything. My latest obsession.

How the Hell am I giving this a meager 2 stars when I love the Anime to pieces? Because the Anime is a lot better

The storyline is (obviously) the same, but when it did not bother me at all in the anime, the almost too simplistic nature of the plot and situations got to me here.

Technically, it still centres around Eren, Mikasa (his adopted sister) and Armin (their friend) throughout their journey to become a Recon Corp member and kill Titans. But where I wordlessly nodded my head and watched the

Thank god, it has been ages since I have read (mainly watched though. The anime in my opinion is far superior to the manga, but regardless) something this good. Attack on Titan is really one of those weird ass ideas that should not work, but does so surprisingly well. I know some people are put off with this story as not only is it gory, but dark, odd, and drags (forty chapters in, and we still do not know squat about the mystery of the titans -_-). Interestingly enough, initially when I saw cli ...more

"On that day, mankind received a grim reminder: we lived in fear of the Titans and were disgraced to live in these cages we called walls."

Young Eren Jaeger and his foster sister Mikasa Ackerman live behind 50 feet tall walls alongside the other remnants of humanity. A little over 100 years ago, mankind finally found itself ousted from the top of the food chain; replacing them were the Titans, enormous man-eating giants who live solely to feast on humans. Those who survived their first onslaught

This was pretty good to be honest. My best friend is really into the anime, and now she owns the first volume. Of course she made me read it, but I do see where all the hype comes from!
I really like the whole idea behind this, but I'm not invested into the story yet so it honestly can't be a 5 star read.
I wasn't a huge fan of the art style. I found some of the drawings to be rather good, but on the other hand, some were a bit sloppy and sketchy.
Definitely going to check the anime out, tho.

Isn't it nice to go into a series you had nothing about? Then as you start reading, you're thinking, what is going on? What is that? Oh this is not going to end well isn't it? This is depressing? Then when you get near the end, you're like, wh..wha...WHAT?!

Yeah series, this is a start of an interesting reading experience isn't it? The anime I hear is about the same. Feels and all. And that the art is beautiful.

Also, favorite is Sasha and Mikasa so far. Though Armin I'm also liking as well. He's

Ah Japan... Why do you constantly leave me asking, "what the fuck?" You have issues, Japan, serious issues.

That said, I picked this book up on recommendation from a friend who said it was about the most epic comic book series he'd ever read. I'm not a big comic guy, but this one drew me in, and I had to finish it, and go out and buy more. The world is pretty awesomely set up, I like the whole post apocalyptic, there is no hope feel it's got to it, and the mystery shrouding just about everything.

So I just finished the first volume of the series and so far it's off to a good start...ish...

So the plot of the story is actually pretty interesting. About a century ago (which is the setting), the human race nearly went extinct because of these giant humanoid monsters called titans that go around eating people. Because of this, the humans had to build a wall 50 meters high in order to prevent said titans from eating them all and having the human race go extinct. Well there's actually 3 walls a

HOLY BOLOGNA.

This story will rip out your heart, swallow it whole( titan style), then spit it back up all hot and covered in saliva then smush it back into your chest so you can continue reading.
Or...that's what it did to me anyways.

Attack on Titan takes place in a completely different era in time. An era in which the humans are forced to live within fortified cities in fear of giant, man-eating monsters called Titans. One day, the Titans break through one city, wreck havoc, run around with hi

Trash That Works

Formulaic? Crude? Amateurish? Appalling? Yes, definitely, all of the above. Make no mistake, this series falls squarely in the trash category. Not tongue-in-cheek-I-am-actually-so-above-this pseudo trash, but just plain trash. I mean, this guy tries hard but simply isn't the most gifted of artists. And yet - somehow - he has been able to capture the imagination of millions around the world with this story centered around an eerie mystery: Who are those "titans" that have nearly w

I've seen the anime adaptation of this manga and I'm in huge anticipation of Season 2 that will hopefully be making its return next summer.

Needless to say, the popular series is popular for a reason. Definitely not for the faint-hearted as there are many scenes in both the anime and manga that may pave a path for your last meal to come back up through which it came. No kidding.

As with a lot of anime adaptations, this one added a lot of things that wasn't written by the author/mangaka. I know t

[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]

At this point, I have heard a lot of really good things about this series. I’m majorly slow on anime, so I hadn’t expected to get around to that, but finally thought I’d pick up the manga when I got the chance. And I was extremely iffy.

First because it’s not my usual genre. I do romance, shojo, josei most of the time. I don’t mind action or dystopian or any of that, and tend to enjoy it in anime and manga, but I just don’t get around to it very much. The

“Channel the anger swelling inside you
Fighting the boundary 'till you break through
Deep in your soul there's no hesitation
So make yourself the one they all fear

There is a wild fire inside you
Burning desire you can't extinguish
Your crimson arrow
Rips through the twilight
This is the moment for war!”
