Shingeki no Kyojin review

Apr 16, 2021
I quickly drawned into this story several moments after the chibi collosal titan posted by people on my facebook news feeds. Along with it, I also notice some characters in certain uniform which later I notice as scout legion uniform, in chibi styles. The unique in it quickly gain fans attention, and it's not usual that I was interested to find out more about it.

When first I read the manga, I can enjoy the art, although it's a mess, but I can gasp the expressions of each characters. More than that, the story itself is more than enough reason for me to notice another masterpiece by japanese writer. Who cares with arts if you got a great story to tell? Though I got sick already with well drawn manga but have sucks story.

I quickly become a fan and as I read furthermore, reading the mangaka's interviews, I learned how he treat the characters equally. It's a very plus point for this manga because it seems like the mangaka have great understanding of people's personalities. Another thing that is great about this, is the fight scenes. It looks great because the mangaka understand martial art.

No story is perfect, and because I really like the story, I wrote rant on tumblr about how stupid Erwin Smith leads his men to sacrifice the troops and all, how uneffective 3DMG is (because it's melee weapon, used to fight overly powerful enemy, which is a big mistake in war strategy), I still have reasons to not drop the manga. Funny thing is, all of my rants and questions on the tumblr articles are answered one by one as I made progress on reading the story.

Shingeki no Kyojin is a masterpiece, although it's art is not beautiful, but everything describe very well in it.
