The Attack On Titan official site has posted a Chimi-Chara illustrated manga spinoff after each episode airs in Japan. It's a perfect way to calm down after a very intense, and usually soul-crushing episode. The cute manga spinoff is only available for a week after each episode is run in Japan.
From Episode 2, a reproduction of the scene where Mikasa force-fed Eren her bread... because she prefers rice to bread.
It seems like fans are also doing whatever to soften the intensity of the story. Below is a sample of one effort.
