Goodreads Synopsis:

Brand new anime episode on DVD: "Attack on Titan: No Regrets" – the backstory of Captain Levi!
Special variant dust jacket by comics artist Cameron Stewart (BatgirlCatwoman)!

The Survey Corps has overthrown the Royal Government and swept away the tyranny of the king. The next step: Move to retake Wall Maria, with the helpf of a newly-discovered metallic ore and Eren's miraculous Titan hardening powers. But as humanity pulls together, its enemies also unite beyond the Walls... now that the Beast Titan has joined Reiner and Bertolt, what havoc will they wreak?


We’re getting real answer about Eren’s father now.
We get a backstory from an observer of where his father came from and how he acted, and what happened when Eren was taken in the forest and blacked out, and then when his mother was killed. It’s a bit weirder than I expected, but it does make some sense.
The group then moves forward with taking back their land, and going to Eren’s old house to see what is in the basement that his father left behind. Their march forward goes well, but it’s when they find Reiner and Bertolt and their gang of rebels that they run into real trouble. Armin has to think outside the box, but they find them, and then they’re ganged up on fast. This fight starts the cliffhanger, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes forward next. It’ll be bad, I’m sure.
This series is good, for sure. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next, how the fight goes and then what they discover about Eren’s past. It’ll be good.
