Description:
Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants 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. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the city walls is damaged by a 60 meter (196.85 feet) giant causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror the tragic events that follow. Eren vows that he will wipe out every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Won the 35th Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga.

Why can't both colored and non colored be up to date on the same time?

@zetsuravez

those colored chapters were moved to their own page...for some ungodly, though undoubtedly stupid, reason.

Lymus the mod posted the link down below: https://mangadex.org/title/31352/shingeki-no-kyojin-fan-colored

As of 12/13/18, chapter 111 is the latest english translated chapter

The most recent chapter seems to be missing (109-110). I remember reading the non colored version of those chapter, but it suddenly went missing. The colored version had those chapter, what happened?

After considering everyone's opinion we decided to move the fan colored chapters to their own manga pages.

wow, the unofficial colored versions are amazing. Easier to identify different characters now. Whoever did this looks like you've got mad digital watercolor/painting skills

So... i don't know if Isayama Hajime is solely responsible for writing the story here, but if he is, that's all more impressive for a guy that couldn't draw two decent illustrations consecutively to save his life. Human drama is superb, while characters well developed, complex, and capable of changing as things keep happening to them. Main drawback would be the titan lore, that sometimes feel flimsy and conjured on the spot, just because the plot called for it.

In short, it's good to very good depending on the arc. Don't let attention deficit disorder animufags complaints discourage you. Pacing is similar to Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist - there's lot of detours, flashbacks and seemingly disconnected moments, but in the end, it almost always turns out they did have a purpose. Everything clicks. That said, one's probably have to have an appreciation for non-linear narratives to fully enjoy it. In the future, when completed, this series will probably make for a great binge read.

...also, those fake "previews" and "alternate continuity" shorts at the end of each volume are great:

I wish there were english translations for vol. 12 to 20, because they're only available in other languages :(
My dutch ass can't read spanish, italian, russian, and all of those others ;__;

I really like how this story plays out mechanically - how the author develops and presents the sequence of events. Drama/tension is really well done in this one.

But every time bloodline is brought up I can't help but wonder what the origins are. Creating the lore w/ a fairytale story (Ymir was given the power by God) is cheap but very effective. Also, magical bloodlines lol (Eldian, Ackerman, are there more?)
