Format: Paperback
This manga is definitely a new take and I love it. The first volume just lets you get your feet wet on what's yet to come but it is definitely worth reading. It becomes easy to sympathize with the characters and you become intrigued on what is yet to come.

WARNING! Do NOT read the interview with the author at the end if you want to be surprised in volume two! It gives away a HUGE spoiler that ruins the suspense of the second volume. Do NOT read it until you're done with volume two! I wish I'd have known this prior to reading the interview. I'm unsure of who's idea it was to stick a huge spoiler in the first book!

But besides that, I would definitely recommend the series!

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book to anybody looking for a survivor/action/horror manga. The first book gives us an introduction of what is going on the world since these Titans have appeared. We are introduced to our two main protagonist Eren and Mikasa who are siblings basically, and we find out Eren goal in life is to become a scout for the legion and rid the world of the Titans. Mikasa is just along for the ride and is willing to help Eren in whatever he wants to do.

Story: We get a sense of the world as despair and depressing. The soldiers are drinking and partying while on their on guard duty because they're comfortable that the wall will protect them from attacks since nothing happen for 100 years. Something big breaks the party up and shocking stuff happens. Human kind is on the brink of destuction can these individuals cope and discover a way to rid the Titans of this world. Lets hope so :). 4/4

Character development: We are introduced to many characters like the top 10 trainees, but the two most important people to focus on are Eren and Mikasa. We learn a lot about these two, and their personal goals in life. Overall, their is a lot crammed in this book about these two especially and we learn a lot. 3/3.

Artwork: The drawings of the characters is superb, the drawings of the titans are creepy and disgusting thats a plus, the atmosphere itself feels haunting so thats good as well. Also the combat drawing of the Three dimensional maneuver was straight up awesome. 3/3

Overall, I highly recommend this series and please give it a read you won't regret it.

10/10

The title may sound stupid but the manga is not. The genre is mystery, action, with horror elements set in a Renaissance steampunk-ish world. This is not your normal Japanese manga in any way it has its own art style, very plot driven, and has zero or close to it fan service(a good thing in my opinion). Very graphic and gory at parts so beware as the main cover illustrates there are giants and they kill humans in anatomically correct ways. Probably not suitable for younger reads because it is word heavy and the story is complex has more adult themes in it as well that carry real consequences. This guy should have just written a novel because it is that high of quality. If i could only read one manga right now this would be the one. It is the struggles of the Protagonist and the mysteries of the world they live in make me come back for more.
I would try and think of similar mangas to this i would think of maybe
works by Hitoshi Iwaaki (parasyte, historie)
Berserk (attack of titan is definitely less hardcore)
any good steampunk, mystery novel?
regards.

Format: Paperback
This story is unlike a lot of the main stream manga/anime that are out there. It focuses on one character, yes, but is more concerned with the survival of humanity as a whole. What this series offers is a story of a failing society, desperately trying to survive, having to make choices even when the people are fighting among themselves. We follow a young man named Eren, and the people he comes in contact with as they fight and die trying to defend what's left of the human race and their last hope. What I love about this series is the true complexity of the characters, the plot, and the way nothing is ever quite what it seems. It introduces characters that are both incredibly strong and incredibly weak, injures them, kills them off, makes them stronger or weaker... it deals with fear and reaction to the horrors of death and being hunted by something that is both bigger and stronger... and the bravery, betrayal, anger and grief that surfaces in its wake.

I suggest this title to anyone who likes complex plots and survival action/horror. I do not suggest this series to younger audiences. Maybe I'm just blind, but I have yet to find out what this series is actually rated. Understand that when it says that "humans get eaten," it means it... and it shows it happen. If you're expecting a lighthearted series where the hero always prevails, this probably isn't for you.

Like most people recently, I discovered this series after watching the absolutely amazing anime.

The show follows the source material very well, and unless you're a manga fan (which I am), it's not strictly necessary to read the book. You'll get plenty of the story from watching.

One note: I bought this book new from Amazon, but it came with quite a bit of shelf wear on the edges. I assume that these have been sitting in a warehouse since publication in 2012, and Amazon is just now moving its backstock (how often does a year-old manga hit the bestseller's list?), but if I were a serious collector, I'd be disappointed in the quality.

Luckily, I'd rather enjoy the book than worry about keeping it pristine, so I'm fine with it.
