Good but starting to rail off.....

I dont really feel like i have to add more on why this is great, i mean it has been said, the story is great and the art is okay but still readable. The first 60% of this manga had me hooked and really amazed me. However i feel like now that this has become popular its been heading a bit more down hill. What i mean is the Author said that he was gonna end this at a certain point but after its fame he decided to extend it. And boy is he doing that. The previous Historia arc was so slow and bad in my opinion. I love this series for the intense situations, survival, action and all the mysteries involved. However we got a REALLY long arc that was basically a Espionage story of over throwing the government and what not.... The reason i disliked it was it didnt feel like the same manga. Everyone was just doing random stuff and they were making the story over convoluted just to extend it you could tell. They said to "save the basement for later" when that was one of the keys to the whole story! Plus Eren man i dont know what to make of him anymore. I loved the Eren that was determined, head strong and willing to do what it takes to survive and protect. However that whole arc he didnt feel like the lead at all. He just felt like a side character. He kept just being protected or needing to be. Hes not living up to the hope of man so far at all. Anyway a new arc is starting soon and i just hope that now that we got that filler like arc out of the way that this will get back to what made it great. of course ill update and change this review and rating once it things change

I saw the anime first and it was pretty good, the plot was very good and interesting, same as characters.
But when it finished I started reading the manga, it was good (although the plot was significantly slower than the anime, I was reading chapter after chapter and I didn't mind at all, until I reached the latest chapter at the moment, then I realized that the plot was actually really slow and complex, since chapters are released monthly the plot got really slow for me.

Anyway, it's still a good manga for me and I read it when chapters are released.

This was good manga at first, probably because it adopt similar concept to zombie, except instead of fighting slow moving monster they fight a giant with some as tall as 50m, to make thing cooler instead of building giant robot to fight it they use simple sword and cannon, and born super survival manga ever created, except just like any zombie or related survival genre if it drag then it became boring, and that's what plaguing this manga it could just end at chap 60(since it is 40page perchapter so it was equal 120c) but they drag it long put some politic in it and then BAM!! boring.

My complain about the manga is that one chapter per month is freaking slow. I realize it is published by a monthly magazine, but seeing how the story progress... the plot tend to grow bigger. Monthly release is better if it's not... Too varied. Will it be another Berserk? Since 1989. I got cool down while waiting shingeki for a long time just to read it. It's still interesting but.. Not as addictive as others. Thus said, shingeki anime did awesome job. I'm usually manga person. Preferring to read manga than watching anime. Only a few anime based manga i like better than the manga. Shingeki is one of them.

This manga started out amzaing as an almost steam punkish survival story.
The MC was easy to connect to with his strong emotions and we quickly bond with his squad mates.
However the last half of the manga has been pretty poor.

The pace of the series became extremely slow. This is due to the manga becoming politically focused, where most of the manga is political wheelings and dealings.
After Eren became a titan I thought we were going to get a lot of awesome battles with him against the titans. However this is not the case as the mangaka has created reasons for him not to change which follows the shonen cliche of restricted heroes. Most of the time Eren has spent sitting around while other people do stuff.
When the mysteries behind the world are revealed I am reminded of the last season of LOST. Where I'm thinking "wait is that. what a let down" when the mysterious are revealed.
Also was really hoping that we would get more of the perspective and motivations of the 3 titans that infiltrated Eren's squad but that has never materialized.

I watched the anime and then read the manga.....and god I cried so many times...(just me? ok)

1) Anime Experience
Watching the anime, I cried in the very first episode, and then again in 2nd episode,... and again in 3rd. I was a sobbing mess because of how raw the atmosphere of Attack on Titan was. Eren's desire for revenge made me cry even harder because, honestly, I just did not think he stood a chance against those giant muscular monsters. Mikasa was my saving grace.

2) Manga Experience
I didn't get quite as emotional reading the manga due to the black/white images and off-beat art style. However, the story is definitely there--so I was drawn to the manga nonetheless. Everything unraveled more quickly in the manga, which made everything a bit more confusing and harder to digest. But the UNFILTERED violence and raging emotions bridges the gap and kept my adrenaline pumped up while I read the chapters.

This manga definitely makes an impact, and now I'm so emotionally invested in so many different characters that I can pretty much guess how much more water I'll need before this manga finishes. Frankly speaking, nobody in this manga is safe. A couple of my favorite characters have already died off in horrifying manners, and I'm just praying for the rest of the cast to live a lil bit longer!

Art is not the best compared to the other series I'm reading and this manga feels really slow at times. If I was rating the anime I'd say 10, but the manga is an 8 for me because I can't understand everything that is happening in the action scenes. It may be just me though. The plot is excellent and gives you questions that you want to be answered. So far, few of my questions have been answered, but there are hints to every other question I have so I am faithful they will answer them.

I absolutely love it and I have been reading it whenever I got the chance. It has a great plot and a lot of unexpected things going around. Usually, I'm not into a lot of shounen manga, but this and a few others are an exception! I honestly don't know why some people don't like it~ ;-; why? The anime is also really good as it is VERY similar to the manga. Even the titans that appear on certain scenes are the same as well as the way random civilians die! I found it surprising at first because of how similar it is. Many anime aren't like that! It is in all a very great read/watch and I love it! It has a storyline you can't forget with lots of action and impact!

This manga is just like Berserk. There's tons of small but important details here that you won't be able to grasp the point that the author try to get it through readers. Some people always have sympathy for titan shifters
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Berthold and Reiner
but read it several times and you will be able to understand how Eren feels. Or how most people feel like forgiving Annie because she might have her reasons.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(in the Famale Titan arc) the mass massacre will hammer how evil of a murderer she is
This manga is no doubt epic! 10/10

I started to read this manga after I watched all the episodes from the anime..I would say that it was entertaining and kind of disappointing at the same time.. I really hope that it gets better..and I also hope that the mangaka doesn't put many mysteries because I'm worried it might result to be disappointing or worse, it is going to ignore that and skip to another..
