As a HUGE SnK(aka Attack on Titan) fan I wanted to read the manga after I finished watching the superb anime(that I can't recomend enogh!). The first volume of SnK starts of at a really good pace. Because I saw the anime first I needed to get used to the art style of the manga and didn't at first really like it(I think Eren looks a bit weird at some places - that's probably just because I'm used to how he looks in the anime), but after a while I really liked it. It suits the manga really well. The only downside to the manga is that I kind of miss the beautiful colors, music, and superb voice acting from the anime, but other than that I really enjoyed reading this. If you're a SnK fan and want to know what happens after the anime left off (and need to know as soon as possible because the wait of season two is killing me) then I can only recomend you to read the manga.

NOTE: If you want to read directly from where the anime lefts you need to start with volume 8, but if you want the full glory of the manga I think you should read all the volumes, but it's totally up to you.

Thanks for reading my review. I hope it was helpful :)

Before Attack on Titan, i'd never been that excited about anime- nevermind manga- and i must admit, i was late to watching it when it came out. But when i started, i marathoned through every episode in a matter of days, and then rewatched them all through showing the series off to friends. The anime is one of the best shows i've seen, great soundtrack, great pacing, great artwork, and a great story (almost 100% of the manga), but i digress. After i finished watching the series, i started reading the manga- as the next series hasn't even been scheduled yet. Like anyone new to manga, i was a bit scared that i wouldn't understand the medium, or would miss crucial plot details, but starting from the first book all the way to the most recent - the 10th (and up to 13, if you search online)it has been great. The story is great (lots of foreshadowing early on to secrets just being revealed), the artwork- despite this being the artist's first work- is quite good; and noticably improved through the series, and the characters, whilst seeming over the top at first, really do settle on you.
I'm not going to deny my bias, but rather, show is as evidence of how enthralling the story is, even to a first time manga reader. I'd definitely give the manga 10/10, and there's still more (a lot more, hopefully) to come

Having watched the anime I decided I'd give the manga a chance. As it turns out this was a fortuitous decision as it's awesome. If you're a fan of the anime I'd recommend this whole heartedly. Similarly, if you've read this and enjoyed it, then give the anime a go :)

Worth reading. Good for a first volume. Still feels like things have yet to get going since most of this volume is back story and set up. The art is good in this genre and the story is really different. So far, the storytelling is pretty plain. I don't really feel much for the characters but I'm intrigued enough to want to know what happens next. It's interesting. I suggest you give it a go!

After watching the anime online, i though it was time to read the books and find out what i was missing...i was NOT dissapointed at all. lots of blood, guts, gore and murder. NOT suitable for young children is all i can say. my 7year old cousin managed to get a hold of it and read it, he didn't sleep for fear of a titan killing him...but other than that, it's an awesome book and i hope to get the second one soon :)

What can I say about Attack on Titan that hasn't already been said? Though the art style is a bit rough and "sketch-like", it makes up for the fact that this is probably the most epic story you are ever going to read within manga. I'd easily dub this the manga version of Game of Thrones (walls, conspiracies, tragedy, etc), without a doubt. Thought don't get me wrong, it may borrow some elements from the TV series, it is in itself easily the most original concept I've read in a manga (the extinction of mankind). And if anyone is up-to-date like me, they know that a presence is lurking, and that there are twists and massive plot points that are going to come: and they haven't even been revealed. The more you find out about the titans, the more the story becomes engaging. The more the characters interact with each other, the more concerned you become for their safety. I really hope this manga gets the credit and appeal it deserves in the Western culture because... DAMN, is it one that should carry on through the ages. I just hope that it doesn't die out of popularity over here like other epic mangas have done, such as Reborn! or Gintama.

Attack on Titan, or Shingeki no Kyojin, is one of my favourite manga, and one of the best to be recently published in the UK. Humanity lives penned within a series of walls like livestock, all but helpless against the man eating Titans that roam the world outside. Even their 3D movement gear, a series of grappling hooks and blades, can't lead them to victory. When a Collosal Titan capable of breaking the wall appears, humanity has to take drastic action to survive.
Influenced by the classic Visual Novel "Muv Luv Alternative", this manga is all about despair and hope. Whilst it's not painful to read, humanity is on a constant downwards slope towards extinction. The main characters are hardly overpowered heroes. The sense of simple fear the Titans give off is quite impressive, translating well from a still image. Although the art is a little underwhelming, this is a series that picks up 100% from the first volume, so don't be afraid to buy it from the start. I wholeheartedly reccomend reading this manga, which only gets more intriguing, mysterious, and thrilling, with each new chapter.

As a newcomer to Manga, I found this to be an incredibly enjoyable but short read. All the characters were interesting, the art was beautiful. However, my one complaint is that the last 20 or so pages are just hype for the rest of the series (i.e. an interview and preview). Not a massive issue, just would rather have seen more content about the 1st volume.
