For whole series.


Absoluteyl brilliant.

Essentially half an homage half a parody to shonen manga taking them to logical extremes with cooking. It is funny, surreal and just so full on awesome you have to read it.

Review for the series as whole so far not the first volume or this particular translation (the title translation is poor and nonsensical, advancing titans would be more accurate, I just call it shingeki no kyojin).


Excellent series, it is a very nice...more

“Hours are long. Wages are pitiful. But sweatshops are the symptom, not the cause, of shocking global poverty. Workers go there voluntarily, which means—hard as it is to believe—that whatever their alternatives are, they are worse. They stay there, too; turnover rates of multinational-owned factories are low, because conditions and pay, while bad, are better than those in factories run by local firms. And even a local company is likely to pay better than trying to earn money without a job: running an illegal street stall, working as a prostitute, or combing reeking landfills in cities like Manila to find recyclable goods.”
Tim Harford, The Undercover Economist
