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.

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

this does not need to exist. it is a long, exhausting, dreadful read full of the most useless and unnecessary series of events known to man. and slapping an AoT logo on it doesn't really help it out.

halfway into the first chapter, it's kinda evident that things are just going to take a turn for the worse. not that it's completely abhorrent but that it tries a lot of things and does not really succeed at any of them.

the art is ok. it tries to mimic the original AoT art but i did feel like the background art was lacking for the most part ...
