Summary from Goodreads.
My thoughts so far…
Okay first of all when you’re reading this you have to know that it’s not the same thing as Attack on Titan. This is a spin off series which purpose is to parody the hell out of the original series to hell and back. Okay now that, that’s out of the way when I first bought a copy of this manga I thought it was going to be really cheesy. I’m more than happy to say that I was totally wrong. This manga is HILARIOUS I laughed so much while reading it. The way they overplay the characters personalities was gold. Or better yet the little things they took from the original series and made them into teenager thinking material. The setting however is completely different from the original series. In junior high titans and humans live in peace. They go to school together so that they can teach humans and titans to… Not kill each other, get along however you want to say it. But do we really think that’s possible? Who knows? I just thought it was really funny how Eren hates titans because one stole his favourite lunch cheese meatloaf, Levi is obsessed with cleaning really it’s almost scary, Mikasa and Annie are competing for Erens attention, and Mikasa is pretty much a stalker now. Armin is a geek, Connie is an idiot and so on. It is just awesome. Okay so at first everyone thought Eren was weird because he hated titans because one ate his lunch. Until it turns out he could be right to be suspicious of them. But what makes this manga parody so good is how well they mock every aspect of the original series. It’s a lot of fun and I say you should give it a try if you like Attack on Titan. I know I will definitely be finishing this series.
