"What I did was wrong…I’m not going to ask you to forgive me after all that’s happened…There’s one thing…just one thing i want to ask of you. I don’t care if you make the entire world your enemy. Even if every other creature alive comes to hate you, your father will always be on your side. So please, promise me that you’ll come back!"
Parenting is a rough job, but are there times where parents stop and think about how their children can be capable of being cruel? Case in point - a young teenage girl who committed tons of bloodshed for a cause personally worth fighting for. Attack on Titan’s second story arc focused on a Female Titan that was determined to kidnap the main character, Eren Jaeger, for the sake of killing mankind. Her story reflects a world where society forces people to be more individualistic and possibly fall into ruin.
HUGE SPOILER ALERT after the jump for fans not familiar with Titan or starting out with the series.

Looks like the winner of the Attack on Titan Volume 1 giveaway is one that makes reference to an anime/manga series that still hits many fans’ hearts long after its debut. After reading many emails on how Titan and anime/manga series inspired them, I would like to congratulate Anthony Morrison as his message on how Tengen Tappa Gurren Lagann hit home to him.
There were some great entries from fans and it was hard to choose a winner. This was my first giveaway, so I didn’t know what to expect. But as someone who has been through cases of depression, Anthony’s short essay spoke to me and made a good note about an important item in the Lagann universe. With his permission, I present to you what he wrote. This is for the Gurren Lagann fans out there as well.

This picture pretty much sums up the majority of the anime/manga presence at this year’s New York Comic-Con. It looks like we have ourselves the gateway anime/manga title for this decade. Even though anime is mostly cast aside at NYCC, you can’t stop fandom from making something out of nothing.
Enjoy all the lovely photos I’ve taken at the convention.

If you were told that you played a role in the success of something, how would you react? While attending New York Comic-Con 2013, I decided to stop by the Kodansha Comics booth to check out what was happening there. I got to speak with two of its key staff members, Ben Applegate and Dallas Middaugh, about the success of Attack on Titan in the U.S. What really shocked me was how Dallas said that Titan’s manga success was because of me.
