Manga Review: Attack on Titan: Before the Fall, Volume 6, by Satoshi Shiki, Ryo Suzukaze, Hajime Isayama, Thores Shibamoto

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: December 2015
Volumes: 8+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 5. 7.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Fifteen years ago, humanity led a last-ditch attempt to discover the Titans' weakness – a survey expedition to capture one of the beasts. But the ten-meter Titan who appeared during the capture attempt threw the expedition into chaos. Among those who escaped behind Wall Maria was the genius craftsman Angel, a weapon-developer who was participating in the expedition as a researcher. What would he conjure up from this failure?


The first half of the volume continues the history lesson, showing us the first real titan death, and the weapon used for it. From there, it pushes the group to continue learning and practicing, and figuring out how to use the weapons and the maneuvering equipment correctly and how to develop it more effectively.
Aside from that, it looks like Sharle’s family is going to be causing some real drama soon. I don’t look forward to that.
I am still enjoying this series, though some of the history and teaching and politics can get a little long-winded and boring at times. I do enjoy the characterizing, and I like Sharle and Kuklo as characters. Will be reading more.
