I'm one of those people who *has* to finish books, even if I'm not enjoying them. I have made an exception in this case, since this book is so epically stupid.

To be honest, at first I thought this would be a really, really terrible idea. Humans and titans, going to a co-ed school? It sounded like another stupid spin-off intended to sell copies and make money just because it's related to Attack on Titan.

Only it's not.

This series is actually quite funny. Instead of being a generic shonen hero determined to wipe out every titan from existence, Eren actually comes across as a racist in this world...and it's hilarious. But Eren's not the only one--EVERYONE is made fun of in this series. Jean is forever alone, Armin is a LARPer/occasional hikkikomori, Mikasa is Eren's stalker, Annie is simply tsundere, Hanji is a...um...(you know, let's leave that for another day...), and Levi is....well, Levi.

The art, while not fantastic, is better than the bland artwork I've seen in other spinoffs/adaptations (i.e. every single Puella Magi Madoka Magica manga, the Ace Attorney manga, etc.).

The translation is fantastic. If you're a purist, you might want to read this online, since the English edition changes a few references. I, personally, can't stop laughing at Jean's defense of one of Cameron Diaz's movies. I feel that the changed references make it more palatable to American audiences, and overall simply make it funnier.

The manga itself is rather episodic, and each chapter deals with the main characters as they encounter...fairly standard slice-of-life school activities, actually. From joining clubs, to participating in an athletics festival, there's really nothing you haven't seen before...Except, of course, the addition of titans. This variable makes almost any situation our heroes get into hilariously abnormal. Dodgeball can turn deadly, clubs can turn catastrophic, and...okay, I'll stop using alliterations.

If you didn't read all of the above (and I don't blame you), the summary is: read this. It's not a waste of your time. (I personally prefer it over No Regrets)
