About book: Okay 3.5 stars Actually I found the lack of Titan fighting in this to be a relief. That gets so dreadfully dull. This one is plot heavy and I enjoyed that, though I would say some of the political stuff seems to be a bit tacked on. Assume spoilers from here on in.The team licks its wounds after more or less getting its collective ass handed to them by Reiner/Ymir/Bertholt last time. All of them are a bit dazed and confused. They do make it back alive, even Erwin survives his traumatic amputation. Zoe and Connie proved me right about the Titans being villagers (well to be fair that wasn't that hard to figure out) and she relays this to Erwin and Levi, the latter being less impressed than I expected to see Erwin basically taken out of the game. However, Zoe is thrown for a loop when Minister Nick is murdered and we learn the military police aren't just corrupt, they're basically the king's thugs. Levi shakes her out of it.We also learn Krista's tragic past, basically the unwanted bastard daughter of an important man (which ironically enough I read another manga volume for a different series with the exact same plot point). Sadly, for me, this tragic past doesn't make me like Krista any more. I find her selfish and unlikable, not even caring that Armin is risking himself for her (though I AM amused I'm not the only one who thought Krista and Armin look alike).For his part, Armin is suffering the physical attention of would-be rapist while he and Jean are body doubles to lure out the people who are trying to kidnap Eren and Krista. This is pretty much Erwin and Levi's plan that ends in fomenting rebellion against the crown. As for Eren, not only can't he harden his Titan body, he's losing himself in the Titan body which Zoe and Armin fear means he could end up like Connie's villagers.One thing is bothering me. Zoe and Armin are so smart and they figure things out so quickly (Erwin too), why are they not just going to the basement of Eren's home? I think it was said it was too far away and too dangerous but it seems like it's been forgotten a bit. Eren's memory doesn't seem to be coming back any and they have to realize answers are there. Over all, I preferred this to endless fight scenes. This is probably the prettiest cover this series has ever had. I was a little bit lost in this volume (especially regarding Historia's role in all of this). There's not a lot of action, but plenty of dialogue as the survey corps is realizing more now than ever that they are alone in this battle against the titans with enemies both within and without the walls. The best part of this volume, though? Very little of Eren whining (hurray!) and lots of Levi being Levi (including a white glove test on Eren's cleaning).
