Manga Review: Attack on TItan Vol 15

Title - Attack on Titan Vol 15
Author - Hajime Isayama 
Series - Attack on Titan #15
Genre - Manga horror
Published - March 17th 2015 
Format - Kindle 


Hange’s interrogation of a Military Police squad has revealed that Krista (a.k.a. Historia Reiss) is the true heir to the throne. The Corps quickly moves to enthrone her as queen, but a homicidal MP leads a squad that abducts Eren and Krista and throws the Corps into disarray. With Erwin arrested and the Survey Corps on the edge of dissolution, are Levi and Hange finally out of options?

I watched the first few episodes on Netflix but it’s not in English so I opted to go with the manga to check it out because the complete series exists instead of just season one. This is my first manga so I don’t really have any prior experience to base it off when it comes to the art or story. I like the art it’s not over complex when it comes to telling the story it seems to work for the gritty horror story. So far the story while is well developed it’s easy to get lost turning the pages.

In the 15th installment, we have Levi and the rest of the Survey Corps on the run as they try to find Eren and Historia who have been taken. Rumors have been exposed changing everything as even more questions arise about what happened at Wall Rose. Eren is forced to remember the truth about what happened to his father.

I really enjoy the series it’s smart giving a little bit of story tossed in with the action as they encounter the titans. In each installment, we are given just a little more info in finding out what is really causing the titans and how to stop them. I admit I wish they had been in color but I’ve gotten used to the black and white of the books. It’s really a well-crafted series a perfect mix of story to art, blending so easily into a captivating story. The characters I feel I have been able to connect with even though it’s little snippets we are given glimpses into their pasts revealing more than they share. As my first manga it’s created a quick love for them and after I catch up with the series I can’t wait to start a new one it’s a perfect way to relax if you have about 20 minutes. I can’t wait to see what will happen next.
