Compared to series like Fullmetal Alchemist (2003), Fruits Basket (2001), Tokyo Ghoul √A, or Season 2 of The Promised Neverland, the Attack on Titan anime sticks pretty close to its original manga source. But that doesn't mean the two versions are exactly the same. Whether because it was a choice made by Wit Studio or MAPPA, or because creator Hajime Isayama himself wanted to see something changed, the adaptation features plenty of changes.
We're breaking down some of the differences between the Attack on Titan manga and anime. If you don't want spoilers for either version, this might not be the article for you.
The anime includes a few scenes that aren't present in the manga, such as Falco's dream about flying and Mikasa's pomegranate scene. It also cut out details like the fact that Erwin used to be in love with a woman named Marie. Many scenes were also censored to be more appropriate for a TV anime. Which version of the series do you prefer?
