Attack on Titan
Volume 1


Hundreds of years ago, horrifying creatures which resembled humans appeared. These mindless, towering giants, called "Titans," proved to be an existential threat, as they preyed on whatever humans they could find in order to satisfy a seemingly unending appetite. Unable to effectively combat the Titans, mankind was forced to barricade themselves within large walls surrounding what may very well be humanity's last safe haven in the world.

In the present day, life within the walls has finally found peace, since the residents have not dealt with Titans for many years. Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert are three young children who dream of experiencing all that the world has to offer, having grown up hearing stories of the wonders beyond the walls. But when the state of tranquility is suddenly shattered by the attack of a massive 60-meter Titan, they quickly learn just how cruel the world can be. On that day, Eren makes a promise to himself that he will do whatever it takes to eradicate every single Titan off the face of the Earth, with the hope that one day, humanity will once again be able to live outside the walls without fear.

If you think this isn’t an incredible work of storytelling, you are kidding yourself.

Take a step back. Think about something for a moment... what is a story meant to do? There are several answers. One: a story is meant to entertain. People tell stories to pass the time, or bring out emotions we feel in our daily lives that we either want to feel again, or would rather hide. In doing this, we’re amused, excited, terrified, or saddened. Maybe it’s all of them at once.

Two: stories are meant to teach, inform, or complicate ideas in a way we’ve not thought of before. They ...

---The review contains plot spoilers---

- Everyone that read the final chapter of AOT.

Despite the underwhelming (or I could even say horrible) ending, Attack on Titan has been one of the best manga I have ever read. The manga has amazing well-written characters with the ability to generate some of the best character interactions I have ever seen in any story. The underground scene after the timeskip and the ability to dive deep into the psychology of each character is way too good. The ending is horrible I agree and it kinda breaks a lot of what has been built upon it so far but ...

*This review contains spoilers*

Ladies and Gentlemen, Hello. My name is Hajime Isayama and today I'll teach you how to write manga.

I must begin by saying that you should not be discouraged. At first glance, it can be difficult, but you only have to write 90 chapters perfectly tied together, with great characters and mystery to the world and titans, fantastic fights that actually serve a purpose with barely any talk no jutsu moments, and perhaps the single most important thing in all of this, Sasha being alive.

What you ought to do afterward is write a timeskip. This is meant for the end-series so we can ...
