    Batoto description:
    Quote Quote:
    Manga adaptation of the prequel light novel, of Shingeki no Kyojin(Attack on Titan)"
    The story follows the creator and the creation of the 3DMG, Ángel Aaltonen.
    A mysterious youth named Kyklop and various other characters.
    Set around 80 years before the main story of Eren & Co. In the year 770 to 790 of AoT's fictional alternative world.
    From the opening (MS version):
    Quote Quote:
    Though there were many victims, the survivors had a strict gag order imposed upon them, and everything was stricken from the royal government's official records. However, the truth that the inside of the "wall" was previously breached by "them" 70 years ago is hardly known.

    However, it really did happen...
    My comments on the prologue...

    Re: "Before The Fall" (ongoing side story)

    ]Ymir could be in that prequel since she was possibly already alive 80 years ago. In fact, her human form is a young adult (around 18 year old) and she spent 60 years in her Titan form. Based on what we know, she is therefore at least almost 80 year old. She was born in that time. We could even learn her history and how she managed to steal the Titan's power.

    It's not her story, but I hope Ymir makes a cameo, assuming this is canon.

    (And you don't need spoiler tags in your post. I just put them in my first one in case ppl didn't read the prologue yet.)

    Yeah, sorry I keep forgetting. But I editted with a spoiler tag shortly after. I don't think anyone else had the time to see it without the tag.

    ]But shouldn't you put a spoiler tag on yours as well now? Since, you know, by saying that you hope Ymir makes a cameo apperance, you're indirectly letting people know that she was around at that time.

    Sorry, that was a typo. I was trying to say you DON'T need spoiler tags.

    OH LOL, well, that explains a lot now haha.

    Btw, I saw two things. This: http://mangadoom.com/Shingeki-no-Kyo...e-the-Fall/00/

    And this: http://differentclouds.livejournal.com/19679.html

    I'm kinda confused, as they seem to be different stories.

    Re: "Before The Fall" (ongoing side story)

    Your first link is a mirror of the Mangastream scanlation I linked above. I'm not adding any such links to the OP because MS explicitly requests (you can see it for yourself in their watermark where it says "Mangastream - do not mirror" on virtually every page they scanlate. So when other groups' work becomes available, I'll add those links.

    The second link is the first light novel. It may have illustrations in it, but it will be more text-based. Before the Fall is adapted from the LN series, apparently.

    If the manga spin-off really is going to follow the novel, then expect the novel prologue to happen in the upcoming chapters. The manga spin-off's chapter 0 was probably just testing the waters and setting the tone. A 10-page chapter isn't enough to cover the novel's prologue.

    @kannazuki
    Actually...Before the fall isn't a VN. It's a Light Novel....And we don't know whether Isayama helps out with the light novel or not........The VN one is Levi's story...XD

    Re: "Before The Fall" (ongoing side story)

    Whoops, I totally knew that (or I wouldn't have talked about it being text-based since visual novels are far more, well, visual ) and just got my terminology mixed up. Thanks, I'll go back and fix it now!

    Did you read the prologue yourself btw? I thought it looked promising, but I care first and foremost about the story, personally, as long as it's canon.

    No prob!~ I actually got confused there for a sec until I realized you meant Light Novels. XDDDDD

    But which prologue? The light novel's or the manga spinoff? I read the manga's but with the light novel, I stopped reading at that line I posted in the other thread. I'll probably start over again once the translator does the other chapters. XD

    I guess the story with Angel may be canon though(I'm holding back until we get a word from Isayama). He's the inventor of the Maneuver Gear after all. So yeah, I'll probably read them later once it has a lot of chapters posted in the web, either the manga or the LN. XDD

    It's just a teaser right now though. Only 10 pages. There is at least one very interesting aspect about it though, which I hope crops up in the main story at some point.

    I don't know about you guys, but anything Shingeki no Kyojin gets me excited as long as there's a % of canon, lol. I liked the teaser, and the art didn't bother me at all, rather, I enjoyed it very much. I think it was realistic and fit the setting

    This looks interesting, very interesting... and the Fatass titan looks disturbing, (even more so than any other titan in the manga) so far. How often will this story update?

    But that titan does not look anything like a shifter, meaning ape titan or someone with the same ability turned a certain human into that titan. And since this is before 3DM and ape titan doesn't know about 3DM this could even be his doing.

    Re: "Before The Fall" (ongoing side story)

    @Nanozom: It's in a monthly called Shounen Sirius. Thanks for reminding me to add more links to the OP.

    @Immortal:
    Yup, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the beast titan was involved. I think that's more likely than Ymir even. (The blob titan looks like it's probably an ordinary mindless one to me. If that cultist-- or more importantly, her cult's leaders --have ever seen titans before, I'm guessing they must have been intelligent.)
