Manga Review: Attack on Titan, Volume 15, by Hajime Isayama

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: March 2015
Volumes: 17+
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:


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?


There’s a lot less titan action here, and instead a lot more human political drama.  Not complaining, mind you.
Levi and the group are figuring shit out.  They’re figuring out who took Eren and Krista, and where they are.  They’re getting all the political shit done, threatening people, beating people up.  It’s very bloody at points, and this series does not hold back.
Then we get to see Eren and Krista, and there’s an odd moment for Krista, but then a surprise with Eren.  I’m not quite sure what he’s seeing or where it’s coming from.  But it’s bringing about possible answers about Eren’s father and the key he got, and so I’m excited about that.  That’s a story line I’m really intrigued to see where it goes.
I love this series.  It’s exciting and surprising and violent.  I cannot wait for the next volume.  The next two volumes are also going to be special editions, so I’m ecstatic for those.
