Attack on Titan, Volume 1

Attack on Titan, Volume 1 - Hajime Isayama

Well, I don't know what to say about this. I'm trying my hardest to give manga a fair shake, and I figured that since Attack on Titan, Volume 1 was on sale, and is a popular series, I'd dive right in.


This manga is... angsty? Extremely so. It's also entertaining as hell at certain points, so I'm torn on how I feel about it overall. Eren's character wasn't my favorite. I'm never big on revenge plots, but I could at least get behind the reason. What I couldn't get behind was his disregard for his own life. YOU STILL HAVE FAMILY. Stop putting yourself in danger, dude!


The panels are crazy hard to follow, since they're all over the place. It's like watching one of those action movies in 3D. Your eyes try their hardest to track, but you always feel one step behind. 


Also, and I never thought I'd say this, but this series is a little too violent for my tastes. It's funny. I have no problem with blood and gore. But kill a ton of people by eating them? I get all creeped out and wiggly.


I might keep going. We'll see.


In the meantime can someone suggest another manga I should start? I want something cute/fun :).
