Attack on Titan - Kuinaki Sentaku Manga (A Choice With No Regrets)



Author: ISAYAMA Hajime, SUNAAKU Gan

Artist: SURUGA Hikaru

Premier: September 2013

Any Levi fanboys in the house? We'll ignore the fangirls since there are none in the vast orifice of internet. Anyway, this is a spinoff manga which is going to tell the story of Levi as to how he came to join the Recon Corp and comes to meet Erwin. It's being serialized in the Aria shōjo magazine that is published by Kodansha. ARIA's preview image for the new manga also features a silhouette of Levi, and the tagline notes: "How will a thug from the royal capital be able to walk forward alongside humanity's strongest!?" There isn't much information on the author, Gan Sunnaku, other than that he writes for Nitroplus.

Only one rule needs to be observed when posting in this thread which is:
- Any time you wish to discuss Attack on Titan Manga/Novel or Before the Fall manga/novel, use the appropriate threads. If this discussion requires reference from those two other manga titles, then use clearly marked spoiler tags to divulge any information in the thread. Inability to follow this very simple rule will result in deleted post, trout slaps, name calling, and etc.
Enjoy the discussion.

I saw that it's also going to involve Erwin too. I hope so, as much as I love Levi, I really want to learn just as much about Erwin since he's also a really fascinating character I want to know more about.

Seems like Levi and his crew knew how to use 3DMG and they are not part of the military.

Plus we see the underground city inhabited for the first time.

What underground city? Do you mean like the underworld of the city, or an actual underground city? Also, in the raw version I've seem it looks like Erwin is already looking to recruit him.

Incidentally, does anyone know Erwin's surname? I keep thinking of him in conjunction with a certain panzer general.

During the arc to capture Annie we were introduced to the underground catacombs built to house people decades ago as a city that was unfinished.

Its original purpose seems to be a bunker defense against Titans.

Turns out they are inhabited. But by the poorest within the innermost wall.

Huh... I thought 3D gears were distributed only to soldiers. You'd think more people/families would own a few and learn to use them to escape Titans if they can just buy them off a market cart somewhere. With that said, imagine Ep 6 Trost where that merchant was blocking everyone with the cart, and some people suddenly say "F this" and start scaling the walls

Maybe he got them from the black market, or stole them?

most likely the black market, in the anime it's shown that the corrupt police in the most inner wall sells their equipment to merchant right?

The manga. Go re-read the arc to capture Annie or watch the last arc of the anime as Armin spells out why there are catacombs.

Also read this prequel's prologue.

see I thought about that as well. But if that's the case, I'd have expected Erwin's first reaction of Levi to be, "wtf, where did the 3DMG come from? he did something illegal", as opposed to the "holy shit, i want that guy on the scout team" look.

I think the corrupt nature of the police/nobles are apparent, especially to those who are working close to them.

1. Military police is corrupt, they sell their equipment to black market
2. Erwin is Recon Corp leader, he should know the corrupt nature of Military police.
3. That's why Erwin not surprised to see a thug has such equipment

That's my guess
