    The art was bad and the story line was worse.  I thought it would be a more of a prequel to the series, but it's nothing like it.  Sort of like an terrible fan fiction.

    It's just not the same. I read this an after I just felt I wasted a little bit of my life. It's a first volume but something could've happened...

    cliche story-line. It feels more fan fiction than any kind of an aside, and only a sub-par one at that. The universe seems pretty removed from the history set in the original.
    If you like cliche, it might be fine for you but I had higher hopes. Maybe if it didn't use the "Attack on Titan" name.
