WARNING: This review covers Volumes 9-12 of Attack on Titan. You may find some slight spoilers within.

As with all my mini reviews, I’m just going to share some of my notes for each of these volumes.

VOLUME 9
  • Creepy abnormal titan!
  • Interesting, some backstory for Sasha.
  • ❤️ Hange’s experiments!
  • Maybe we’ll see inside Eren’s basement soon? Maybe?
  • Ooooh, another twist!
  • Poor Connie!
  • Creeeeepy!
  • Oh, my notes are so naive. You go ahead and keep thinking that, past self.
  • 4.5 stars

 

VOLUME 10
  • SO CREEPY.
  • That crazy abnormal titan again!
  • Some background to Ymir and Krista.
  • Whoa, Ymir!
  • WTF?
  • Connie is actually smarter than I first thought.
  • Whatever happened to Jean? We haven’t seen him in a while!
  • WTF WTF WTF??? This is one of the hugest twists!
  • Armin is such a SMART DUDE.
  • OMG THIS SERIES.
  • 5 stars.

 

VOLUME 11
  • My boy Armin! Smartest dude!
  • Poor Connie. Not so bright anymore. You had your moment, though.
  • Jean! Is that really you?
  • Levi is a jerk, but he does throw some good shade.
  • Lol, Eren calls someone a dumbass!

VOLUME 12
  • I wish Eren would go to his basement already and figure shit out.
  • Eren is told to not put up a fight because he’s already hurt, but he puts up a fight anyway. Because he’s Eren.
  • WTF? OMG
  • I ❤️ Armin.
  • Armin & Hange. BEST CHARACTERS.
  • Erwin is a BAMF.
  • Oh no! My bby Armin is in danger!
  • 4 stars.

 

I LOVE this series, you guys. It’s just SO GOOD. If you haven’t checked it out yet, but you enjoy manga and/or post-apocalyptic sci-fi, you should definitely give it a try!
