THIS IS THE BEST ( kinda) MANGA I READ TODAY! :D
Interesting take on what happened befor the events of the main storyline
This is the best side story to attack on titan. If you didin't know this storyline is about how the 3D menuvering gear was crated.
Very action packed towards the end. Very good in basically every way.
