Trying to explain what the Attack on Titan Anthology is can be surprisingly difficult. The short answer, is that it’s an anthology from Kodansha Comics featuring American comic creators telling stories inspired by and based upon Hajime Isayama’s hit franchise, Attack on Titan. That doesn’t quite do it justice though, nor does it really delve into the depth of talent among the roughly 30 creators who contributed stories to it. If that wasn’t enough, the stories run the gamut from comedy strips, to stories placing Isayama’s creation into new and different worlds, to stories set in the world Attack on Titan fans know and which sit neatly alongside the rest of the franchise. Suffice it to say, the Attack on Titan Anthology probably has something for anyone holding even a passing interest in the franchise.

Welcome to the latest midweek manga review here at Sequential-Ink! There was a brief break last week due to finals, but I’m back on track and looking to return to a twice a week schedule for the rest of the month. Despite the fact that I just welcomed you to a midweek manga review, this midweek review is actually a little different as I’ll be looking at The Science of Attack on Titan, which technically isn’t manga! Before we get that though, some news from the past two weeks…

And now, onto this week’s review of The Science of Attack on Titan!

That man is Rikao Yanagita and he’s written The Science of Attack on Titan to address just such issues!
