Attack on Titan, Vol. 1 | Book Review

‘In this post-apocalytpic sci-fi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming mankind. Seemingly unintelligent, they have roamed the world for years, killing everyone they see. For the past century, what’s left of man has hidden in a giant, three-walled city. People believe their 100-meter-high walls will protect them from the Titans, but the sudden appearance of an immense Titan is about to change everything.’

I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for a while now but I just never got around to reading it. However, I’ve seen a couple of episodes of the anime so I thought I’d finally give the manga a go.

Let’s start by talking about the story itself. While the story is pretty unique, I was kind of bored, honestly. Even while watching the anime, I lost interest. From what I watched of the anime, it was exactly the same in the manga so I was surprised at any of the plot. Not that there was much to be surprised about anyway. The only real interest was when the attacks were happening. Not that Attack on Titan went into much detail of the attacks.

I found the main character whiny and annoying, and the fact that he’s prone to shouting and going nuts didn’t endear him to me at all. All the other characters in Attack on Titan were completely forgettable, except for Mikasa who is totally badass.

This is very hyped but so far I’m unimpressed. I really hope it gets better because volume 1 was just ok-ish.

    Woah my favorite, I didn’t know that you would review the this book. I’m so glad that I’m not alone loving Anime in this field. I don’t wanna tell you any clues but in volume 1 there’s not much action than the rest, of course its like an introduction part more of just telling about what’s happening etc. thanks for your honest review 🙂 looking forward for the next one!
