It feels like I’ve had volume four of Attack on Titan sitting in my room forever. I have just been reading so many other series that I haven’t had the chance to read this. Finally I got the chance and I really regretted neglecting such a great series.
Volume four begins with the clean up after the battle with the Titans. From the outset the reader is exposed to images of corpses and severed limbs as different branches of the army attempt to gather up and identify the deceased. All the characters still appear to be in shock as the see what remain of their friends and compatriots.
The story then takes a turn as we are taken through a journey of the training of the main characters. A very good indication of what is required in the training process as well as fantastic character development. Through the training scenes we learn about the bonds and rivalries that were built during this time. The stories are very good to read and have a fair amount of comical value that really pulled me in.
Overall, I am still enjoying reading Attack on Titan. I think I am going to start watching the anime soon and catch up to where I am in the manga. I have a lot of other manga that I want to get reading, so I might not post about Attack on Titan for a little while.
Until next time,
