    This is the adaptation of the award winning doujin novel that shocked Japan and sold over 130,000 copies within a month. It even outsold Haruki Murakami's long awaited novel, 'Killing Commendatore' domestically.

    While in the manga, it claims that it's just a work of fiction, the press release for the book by Fushosha, the publishing company, says (and I quote) "'Otto no Chinpo ga Hairanai' is a shocking true tale that tells the story of a woman's life". It's about her relationship with school, society, men and women. It's about a woman that struggles with the curse that's 'normalcy', her struggle with impotence, cheating, and all that in between.

    Comicalized by Gouto Yukiko (36-do, R-chuugakusei), a story of despair and hope, dedicated to all the people who have difficulty living, begins now.

    **This novel was recently adapted into a 10 (?) episodes dorama. For those that are interested, you can check it out!

    Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by Titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source.

Flash forward to the present and the southern district of Shinganshina has not seen a Titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the outer district walls is damaged by a 60 meter (196.85 feet) Titan causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller Titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror the tragic events that follow, as the Titans devour people uninpeded. Eren vows that he will wipe out every single Titan and take revenge for all of mankind.
