Stand Alone or Series: 11th volume in the Attack on Titan series
Rating: 4/5 stars
“Thanks to Eren’s timely arrival, the 104th has managed to turn the tide at Wall Rose. But this momentary victory forces two more traitors into a corner – and the identity of the Titans who have been destroying the walls is revealed! What can Eren do against the two most dangerous monsters humanity has ever faced? And who else might be an enemy in disguise?”
This is the 11th volume in the Attack on Titan series. I enjoyed it; it was action packed and started to move the story forward again.
This was mostly a large battle between the Armored Titan and Eren. The battle scenes were well done and I enjoyed the illustration. There are a lot of battle scenes though; this is a quick read because maybe ⅓ of the book is just illustration.
We do get some flashbacks into when Eren was training with the people who turned into Titans and some insight into the fighting techniques Eren learned.
The best thing about this volume was the end. It looks like we are finally going to get some story and explanation behind these other humans that can turn into Titans. I look forward to reading about that in the next book.
I mainly recommend this book to older teen and older readers because of the level of violence and gore in it.
Overall this was a great continuation of the Attack on Titan series. The story is still moving a bit slow for me, but it does look like we are going to find out some interesting things in the next book…so I look forward to that. I would recommend to those who enjoy action-packed manga.
