    We shouldn't have this flashback now. It should've been introduced before. We already know the results, it's not fun. After all this action we are back to the training. Nope. It doesn't work this way.

But still, HE'S HERE. Ummmmmm, so yeah. This was a good volume for developing many supporting characters, and I like that a lot of the focus is on Jean. He's a great foil for Eren, and his inner struggle between safety and heroism is interesting. The sudden switch from the present storyline to the past was very abrupt, and I like that the anime handled it more smoothly by keeping the timeline linear. You see the cadets training before they graduate and encounter new threats. I think the switching did work for the scene between Jean and Marco, though. Now that we have that out of the way, I just want to slam gifs of Levi down.

    “When we're born. . . All of us. . . Are free. People who reject that, no matter how strong they are. . . Don't matter.” Astounding! P.s: Sasha is my spirit animal.

    I think this might be my favorite vol. so far. I really enjoyed the flashbacks of them training, and I laughed out loud several times reading this. Moving on to vol. 5.

    Most of this volume is told with flashbacks and I don't mind that at all. I like learning more about the characters instead of just battle after battle. But omg, titan puke?! 😧🤢 ~ Original review: I don't even like this series that much but I had to buy this mash-up: OMG, another one!

    This volume has a lot more character building in the form of training flashbacks, and emotional import for some of the horrific deaths of these poor clueless fighters... and I loved it. I don't usually care for flashbacks, but anything that draws me into a story is gonna be good. The best part of the manga is just trying to figure out what the hell is going on in the broader sense, and we are inching forward, slowly and surely. I love these guys. Onward to the Scouts!

    Levi made an appearance at last. Flashbacks were a bit boring here. And I think military type of stories are not my thing.

    This volume focuses on Eren and Mikasa as trainees in the military unit, so be prepared for lots of flashbacks. This volume is actually pretty neat because we get a better look at what it takes to become a soldier in this world. The struggles Eren had to face as he went through his training and his interactions with the other characters you meet in book 2. Basically, his scooby-gang, if you will. Each character from book 2 is either talked about a little bit or at least shown as a teenager.

You get a way better feel for why these people are so willing to trust Eren and die for him because in prior books you don't get the whole picture. As I said before, the beginning of the book introduces Eren as a Titan and the ending goes back to this but the entire middle is trainee time. So, if you suddenly get confused or think some pages are missing don't worry, their not. It all ties together in the end. Totally recommend this series, it's just really cool and a total twist on a futurist themed story.

    Story This volume is a giant flashback, that was presented chronologically in the anime series. We see Eren & Co. as they spend their time in training to fight the titans. We also get a lot more back story on the other members of their trainee class. I think I prefer the anime's approach of having it chronologically rather than as a flashback.

I like this story arc as it really gives depth to the supporting cast which I think becomes more important later on. Can't wait for volume 5! Artwork This volume didn't have quite the level of action in it as previous ones, so it's hard for me gauge on that point. Mr. Isayama seems to be getting more comfortable with his characters as the series goes on.

    Wow. I'm getting super attached to this story. It's sooooooo good. I can't believe I didn't like it that much at the beginning! I love how they call Sasha the potato girl. :D

    Solid but slow in plot. Just massive amounts of character builds with flashbacks. I'll probably keep to the anime from here.

    It was nice to see those tiny development regarding titans as it seems like everyone barely know what they're really about. This volume however heavily focuses on flashback sequences and that felt very oddly integrated into the main storyline. It created such a discontinuity in events and lasted way too long (and I don't think that's a good thing if I reach that point where I wonder when we'd get back to real-time events). I still have a tough time with dialogues in this series. They It was nice to see those tiny development regarding titans as it seems like everyone barely know what they're really about.

    Gore in abundance. Lives being lost like flies. Friends trying to hold it together as they try to figure out how the f*ck Eren does what he does. All of these make for yet another brutally awesome volume of Attack. I really enjoyed the process of Eren shifting into Titan mode and then the readers getting a glimpse of how he is affected mentally in such a situation. It makes for a fascinating piece.

It was also quite wonderful to watch a military superior not being a colossal jackass for once, but actually using his brain for a strategic decision. Although I'm very sure that the chaos of this radical new development will evolve in the next volume or so. Once again everything is on high and it's one hell of a rush.

    Okay... so here's how I rated it. I only liked two chapters out of five (the first and the last), so two stars. I'm basic af, but it's late and I'm tired to think of this more thoroughly. Worst one in the series. Pretty boring. Bye.

    Full of details about the training of Survey Cops. it was a nice read. I'm already thinking of reading the next one in the serie.

    I watched the first few episodes on nextflix but it’s not in English so I opted to go with the manga to check it out because the complete series exists instead of just season one. This is my first manga so I don’t really have any prior experience to base it off when it comes to the art or story. I like the art it’s not over complex when it comes to telling the story it seems to work for the gritty horror story. So far the story while is well developed it’s easy to get lost turning the pages.

    This was a good volume, although I found the flashbacks to be a nuisance. We learn more about the supporting characters like Jean, Sasha, Reiner, Annie, and Bertolt. Sasha is a favorite and quite underrated. I also love how the format for the manga is unconventional unlike in American comics at times.

    My heart hurts for them. They're so small. *Whimpering* Even though this background story felt oddly placed, it was still good and showed us how the group began to shape. I just want to give all of them hugs :( Recommended 13+ for lots of violence and language.

    Probably my favourite volume so far. 1) This covers the years between when the 104th trainees squad began, to the current time when they're clearing up the bodies from the mission at the end of the third volume. CHEERFUL. I was worried this wasn't going to be included, because it's vital character development, but it was, which I'm really happy about. It introduces all of the people Eren got to know- Jean, Marco, Reiner, Bert, Annie, Sasha (AKA Potato Girl) and Connie (HE HAS MY NAME!

It introduces all of the people Eren got to know- Jean, Marco, Reiner, Bert, Annie, Sasha (AKA Potato Girl) and Connie (HE HAS MY NAME!!!!) It's interesting seeing how their relationships develop and change, and seeing their skills adapt as they get closer and closer to picking whichever legion they join afterwards. 2) I wanna talk about the humour in this volume. Sasha becomes famous for being 'Potato Girl' (she basically arrived at her first day eating a potato and sassed her instructor, before being made to spend five hours running around a field). Connie forgets where his heart is and accidentally puts his fist on the right side of his chest. Connie and Sasha eff around whilst training. Also Jean's 'What is it Eren' while pulling the weirdest face I have ever seen. The humour was perfect. 3) I wonder if Sasha was genuinely confused about the potato question (the instructor asked why she was eating a potato) or if she was just being sassy. Like, the entire conversation is one hell of a train wreck and I can completely understand why her and Connie are friends, considering his messed up salute. He did not know where his heart was until he met Sasha. (I ship them, they are adorable). 4) 'Here we go again, Jean and his roundabout declarations of love...' 'Can it, potato girl.' '...I thought everybody'd forgotten about that.' Nobody forgets Potato Girl, Sasha. NOBODY.

    I thought the flashbacks were awkwardly placed, but interesting nonetheless. And of course the author would put in those flashbacks to make you care about the characters more right before he kills some of them.

    It's finally getting interesting. However, there is a huge flashback sequence that comes out of nowhere and takes up a good half of the book. It's so sudden that it left me checking back to make sure I hadn't missed anything, and it just feels very out of place. All we really learn from it are a few names and that Eren isn't that talented. Characters continue to annoy--Eren is constantly riled up and angry, and Jean and Eren are always fighting for no real explained reason--and when the flashbac It's finally getting interesting.

    3.75 stars! This volume gave some back story to the cast of familiar faces that seem to appear regularly. So because of the explanations & depth, it was a little slow, but still interesting. And Levi is in it now, so yay! I've heard good things about him so I'm definitely excited to read more of this manga, even though it's inevitably going to rip my heart out!

    "So why did you EVER want to see the outside world?" "Why...Well, that's- That's obvious, isn't it? It's because... I was BORN into this world!" Snapping back from the action of the ongoing Titan assault on humanity's last stand, we take a step back into the lore of Attack On Titan, back to Eren, Mikasa and Armin as Army trainees, years before their service with the Survey Corps began. Eren will never be as strong as his foster sister, Mikasa. As fast. As cunning. As smart. But she'll never out-willpower him. Despite the fact he's not as strong or fast as eve "So why did you EVER want to see the outside world?" "Why...Well, that's- That's obvious, isn't it? It's because... I was BORN into this world!" Snapping back from the action of the ongoing Titan assault on humanity's last stand, we take a step back into the lore of Attack On Titan, back to Eren, Mikasa and Armin as Army trainees, years before their service with the Survey Corps began. Eren will never be as strong as his foster sister, Mikasa. As fast. As cunning. As smart. But she'll never out-willpower him. Despite the fact he's not as strong or fast as everyone else, Eren won't quit until he's gained rank and gets to choose which section of the Army to serve in. Eren may be weak but he he is NOT a quitter. Finally introduced to rather infamous AOT faces- Reiner, Jean, Annie, Connie, Sasha, and especially fancomic-fodder Captain Levi- this volume was a huge contrast to the almost nonstop action peppered with a few flashbacks of the first three volumes. We spend almost the entire book in the past, watching our heroes (and villains..?) as they train to fight what could be the human race's last fight. It was refreshing and actually really entertaining to just watch teenagers be teenagers for a little while, given their universe. Not quite a Beach Episode, seeing as it was a flashback, but as close as I expect to get this early in a series as big as AOT. Mikasa, especially, in the past and the present, shows new depths and a new side of herself we had yet to see in the story. She's so much more than the stoic soldier. Isayama is rivaled only by Kazu Kibuishi (if you're expecting me to shut up about him, there's the door) in the character development regard. Art specs Like I said in that review for AOT vol. 3 I finally wrote last month I can't DO a huge 'art spec' for every volume because of the shit-ton there are. I'll likely share one panel I liked from here on out, depending on things that happen. What i really love about Hajime Isayama's art is how rough and unforgiving it is. No big eyes, no slick hairdos, no cute girls laughing behind their hands. His characters look more human than a lot of Western comic artists can manage. I'm always impressed. It's not eye-candy, it's an eye-kale juice cleanse. First graphic novel of 2018, and one of my reading resolutions was to continue some mange series. Let's see how far this goes. The Wings... Of FREEDOM.

Because I didn’t have other bookmarks available, and because I wasn’t going to dog ear a library book, and because I wasn’t going to rip up my only bookmark into smaller ones, I used a (clean) tissue as disposable bookmarks. So, now, I’m going to go through book 4 and stop for each tissue, and talk about them. This may mostly be an anime versus manga kind of thing—not critiquing, but noting differences. Because—see reason 1, actually. A. Scene: towards the beginning of this volume, when he’s moving the boulder in Titan form. Let me start off by saying: I like Eren. I don’t always get him, but he’s still the protagonist and he really means well. He’s a tenuous, endearing, angry boy. The one thing I don’t understand—and makes me want to chalk it up to his scary, animalistic fury—is his whole fight thing? Because when he starts saying “It doesn’t matter… how cruel the world is. Fight! FIGHT!!” and gets all dramatic and Harry-Potter-book-five angst-y, I kind of… lose him. His arguments to fight could be sold better, I think. Because his reasoning is a bit shaky at times. I get where he’s coming from. It’s just all angry and messy and could be portrayed better. Work the “when we’re born… all of us are free” angle a little more. Like, fight for freedom and say it more clearly instead of “fight! FIGHT!” again and again. Work the angle of him wanting to go out and explore the world even more, you know? B. Scene: Levi has just saved the three from two Titans. Of course, the scene is a little chaotic—thanks, artist, for gratuitous black lines to show how fast paced it is (ok, I understand what you were trying to do, but you made it harder to understand at times than anything)—and, of course, Armin has a right to be confused. Steam and dust are everywhere. You can’t see who just saved you. I don’t think I noticed in the show, but Armin says, turning around, “Mikasa?! Huh? That’s… ” And I just… Oh, Armin. You immediately guessed it must be Mikasa who magically saved you guys. I just… really appreciate how much you look up to your friends. I think you guys are great. Anyway, enter Levi. C. Scene: Day 1 of training. Everyone is being yelled at. This is also the same scene Sasha is introduced. One of the soldiers walking by says: “It’s a rite of passage. You’ve got to throw out everything that person was and start over with a clean slate if you’re going to make a soldier.” Ergo, yell and deride them until they’re completely humiliated. I’m not going to touch the psychology behind that reasoning, however, I just found it interesting, knowing that, which ones the drill/yell sergeant person did yell at. He skipped Mikasa and Eren—but not Armin. (I can’t remember. Wasn’t Armin near or around when their mom was eaten?) So, yup. Just interesting, is all. D. Scene: Jean and Eren have a few words during dinner, but apologize afterwards to each other. Jean just saw Mikasa, insta love, and then he sees her go off to walk with Eren. In response, he wipes his hand on Connie, who rightfully freaks out a bit, and when Connie asked what Jean wiped on his shirt, Jean says, “My faith… in humanity.” Ok. I… Jean is a character I like, but also don’t think of often when I think of Attack on Titan. But, seriously, Jean? You’re being a bit overdramatic, no? I mean, legit. That was his response. And from that stems, in the future, a lot of his animosity towards Eren. They could totally be friends, but no. I just… come on, Jean. You can’t even blame Eren’s quick temper for any of this. E. Scene: Eren, Armin, and Mikasa at dinner after Eren’s failed attempt to use the maneuvering gear that day.)Mikasa says, “Laying down your life isn’t the only way to fight.” And I just really, really like that. I really like Mikasa. F. And, finally, is that supposed to be Mikasa on the cover? Because I thought her hair was black? And, so, those are my rambles. The problem with reading these books are it’s very easy for me get through them all. I get a book out a week, basically, and I breeze through it within an hour or so and always feel like someone abruptly hit the breaks when I reach the end. Ugh. In conclusion, I do enjoy reading this series. I have a great deal of belief in the ability of humans to suffer a great deal and survive it, however scarred, which makes it hard to read this at times because, man, this world is unbelievably dark. (But also very beautiful.) :( What some people might be uncomfortable reading about in this book because of personal opinion or belief (spoilers): mild swearing, violence and gore out the wazoo, and Titans are naked. No sexual organs, but it can be jarring and uncomfortable. People die. Some are eaten “on screen,” as it were. Basically, rated R. Proceed with caution. Although, honestly, if you got through the first few books, I’m sure this is fine. Reviews for volumes 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14
