From Kodansha:
Humanity has learned to live in complacency behind its high walls, protected from the giant Titans. But when a Titan-worshipping cult opens one of the gates, a Titan wreaks havoc, consuming the cultists.
After the rampage is over, two young Survey Corps members are shocked to discover a pregnant woman's partially digested corpse - with her baby still alive inside it! What will the fate of this "Child of the Titans" be and how will humanity learn to cope with the Titan threat?

The best version of the mythos   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

The Attack on Titan franchise is a runaway train by now and why not as it is a breath of fresh borderline seinen air in the dead waste of modern shonen Action but i fear that it is the wrong version of the tale that is getting all of the attention. Before the Fall has the better art even if the main manga (8/10) has established it´s style after a bit of stumbling. There is no Levi to be had here (why was his short prequel so forgettable?) as he is the best part of the entire franchise after all but Kuklo is borderline the same character so i am cool.
Isn´t it awesome that his love interest Sharle actually get´s to do stuff and show strength even if she doesn´t joining the battlefield. Why can´t more high born future wives to be behave more like her in the field of shounen?
I also like that the story keeps the Titan´s danger very real as they lost their mystic a bit too early on in the "sequel" as sudden death became less of an obstacle too fast.The straightforward nature of the tale is also welcomed and i feel that i am reading something that is moving along all the necessary steps without missing a beat or overstaying it´s well come. The human danger is very real too and this Version has frank depiction of torture too.
I look forward to it´s unenviable OVA adaptation but animating Sharle´s elaborate hair will be a real challenge.
Can i have a 2nd season of Claymore (8,5/10) in my future too as the comparable manga stayed strong till the end and featured a near indistinguishable world, mythology and sense of mystery as Titan.

This manga aims at establshing origins to different weopons and terminology in the main story. It is fun becuase it gives trivial information and may answer potential questions that you might get while reading the main story.
