A baby is found crying in a mass of Titan vomit, amidst the dead titan flames. The child is called "child of titan" and is essentially hated by the people inside the walls. He also seems to grow unnaturally fast. Named Kuklo, he parts himself from his past/upbringing and gambles on the fate of humanity by enlisting in the scouting legion.

AoT Before the Fall tells a story that happens about 70 years before Eren, Mikasa, Armin and everyone else you know from the main manga or anime.

The main character here is Kuklo, "The titan's soon", a baby somehow born from a titan, and during his journey, we will learn more about stuff like how people lived 30 years after humanity started living inside the walls; how the military dealt with the expeditions outside the walls without their ODM Gear, and even how the same was invented.

This manga has a bunch of new and amazing characters, which in my opinion, is the highest point of the read more

Having recently blitzed through AOT, I decided to give this a go too.

For someone that was grabbed by the initial impact that AOT had, this was… lacking in it. A lot of it felt like some high school SoL.

What did I like about the series? The origin of the ODM gear and its inventors. The Survey Corps of early era that struggle to justify its existence and the politics of the capital city. All of those were cool but not enough to cover for the characters the character development and the plot that really goes nowhere.

The ending arc is unsatisfying. They did their best to read more

attack on titan before the fall is 70 years before Erens time its also that time when humans still didn't know how to kill titans properly and before they even invented Maneuver Gear.

Doesn't it seem interesting,how did human kind invent the Maneuver gear?
How were things before the original Attack on titan?
Well then this manga shows you the past which is very interesting.
This manga has nothing to do with Eren or it seems that nothing links,its a story about different people and their problems the only similarity is that they live in the same walls and have titans surrounding the walls and that human hate read more
