Attack on Titan - our most popular books

Since the library began stocking manga 3 years ago these books have consistently been popular, so popular this year, that in fact, they hold the top 10 spots in our most popular items.  Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama is the story of people who live within walled communities.  They are attacked by a huge human looking beings who seem to want to destroy them.  There seems to be no reason for this.

"The story initially centers on Eren Yeager, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and childhood friend Armin Arlert, who join the military to fight the Titans after their home town is invaded and Eren's mother is eaten. However, as the story progresses and the truths about the Titans are slowly revealed to the reader, the narrative shifts to encompass Historia Reiss, squad leader Levi, and other supporting characters." From Wikipedia

These books are read by students from across the school - year 9 - 13 and we have to keep several copies of each of the books. Even though the manga are available as anime online the books just keep being borrowed.  It is fantastic to see.  Coming soon to the library are some new manga series (One Punch Man, Vampire Knight and some new episodes of existing series we stock such as Black Butler, Naruto, Fairytail and Bleach.
