Ryou Suzukaze’s story joins with Thores Shimamoto’s illustrations to create the unique feeling of Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall. Thes elight novels are a spin-off prequel of the original manga Shingeki no Kyojin by Hajime Isayama, which was also adapted into this year’s hit anime series.
Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall centres on the events surrounding the Survey Corps member Anheru. He is one of the key people who work on the development of weapons. 70 yeas before Eren Jaeger comes to the same team of titan-fighting humans, Anheru is the first one to come to the incredible idea of a special weapon that could reach the humongous titans. He is also of the generation that discovered that special zone on the back of the titan’s necks.
Vertical will release the English version of the light novels in 2014.
