Manga Review: Attack on Titan, Volume 19, by Hajime Isayama

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: August 2016
Volumes: 20+
Spoilers?: Light.
Volume: 1. 18. 20.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The Survey Corps is engaged in a desperate, final battle to retake Wall Maria and defeat the Titans once and for all. Eren must use his new powers to seal the holes created five years ago in the Shiganshina District gates, not to mention to finally reach the basement of his old home and find what secrets lie hidden there. But the most difficult part of the operation will be surviving whatever clever traps the Colossus Titan, Armored Titan, and Beast Titan have prepared for them! Now that Erwin is gambling with every last human life, who will triumph?


The group meets up with the rebels in this volume, the human titans who are fighting the humans. Eren fights with the armored titan for a while.
It's mainly when Armin attempts to talk to Bertolt that we get some kind of understanding what their goal is. It still doesn't make much sense, though. Bertolt claims that everyone inside the walls needs to die—they just do. He's decided this. Even when Armin tries talking sense, or just understand what his reasons are, he doesn't give much else. It's an interesting conversation to see play out, though.
And then the volume ends with a large blast in the middle of town, as he changes into a titan. It might have killed a lot of people, though.
The long time between each volume makes the enthusiasm lessen, and gives me more time to forget what's happening in the series, sadly.
Still, the next volume is always on my list.
