Title: Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人 Shingeki no Kyojin)



Genre: Action, Horror, Fantasy, Tragedy

Chapter Count: 50; 11 Volumes released in Japan, 7 Volumes released in the USA.

Plot: A Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, which is set in a world where the remains of the human population live inside cities surrounded by enormous walls due to the sudden appearance of the Titans, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. The story centers around the life of Eren Jaeger and his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman, whose lives are changed forever after the appearance of a Colossal Titan brings about the destruction of their home.

Personal Opinion: Originally getting into this series through the anime, I, as many others, couldn't resist and dived into the manga. I'm sure that I don't need to mention the good points of the series so I'll just state this. The art of the manga may not seem as good as most of the mainstream manga series these days. The problem is especially with how humans are drawn, sometimes you may have hard time telling characters apart, although that doesn't happen too often.

The series contains a lot of mystery as even after 50 chapters, not many answers were given. If you're like me, you'll find yourself going WTF quite often, feeling mindfucked by what you've just seen. It also heavily relies on shock; with characters dying left and right in the most gruesome ways. If you're not into gore and blood, this series may not be the right choice for you.

For anime watchers, the story itself continues nice and shiny (or I should say, dark and bloody) after the conclusion of the Female Titan arc, the point which the anime ended at. If you have watched anime and want to start manga now, I suggest picking it up at chapter 32 (unless you want to read the entire manga!). You will see what the story was meant to be like as episodes 24 and 25 of the anime were heavily altered compared to the manga chapters they adapted.

Overall, this series quickly became one of my favorite ones. Although it's sorta painful waiting for monthly releases - yes, this manga is monthly. In any case, if you want dive yourself into a shocking world of mystery and mankind desperate for survival, this is the best series for you to read! After all, it's quickly topping all kinds of charts, with One Piece finally having a rival in the competition to be the best selling manga series of 2013 in Japan.

NOTE: This is a discussion thread about the Shingeki no Kyojin manga series and as such, it contains spoilers. If you do not wish to have the story spoiled for you, leave the thread. In spite of that, I'd like to ask everyone else to insert any major events, especially from the lastest chapters, into a spoiler tag. Thanks.

Chapter 50

Spoiler
Chapter made me say what the fuck out loud. I knew Hannes or however you spell his name would die, but they didn't hold back one bit. Pretty brutal, in an awesome way.

Holy fuck, Hannes dying so quickly was like lol ok but man that bit with Eren's mom in the titans mouth and her legs sticking out, shit.

So, not only is Eren a titan himself, but he has the ability to control every titan somehow?

What was with that punch to the Titan, why did he just simply block it and not try to grab him or anything, and why did Mikasa go all we're gonna die mode.
