Been a while since I recommended a bundle, this seems like a good time to revive that habit.

There's some pretty great stuff in this one.
First and foremost: Attack on Titan (AKA Shingeki no Kyojin). I ****ing love this series. Easily one of my all-time favorites. Superb storytelling. Like foreshadowing? You'll have a field-day with this one; loads of tiny details that hint at important story details tens of chapters before they are clearly revealed/established.

Vinland Saga is pretty great. Only problem I have with it is the rampant exaggerations of what is a story clearly based in reality (with real people that actually existed in the past). Some things just go too far for me to suspend my disbelief.

Knights of Sidonia is another good series. This one is pretty ****ing weird though. Talking tentacles, pee-drinking and all that jazz :D
Am I joking? Well, you'll have to read it to see! The story is told pretty brilliantly mostly through pictures rather than dialogue/text. It can be a bit confusing at times, but don't be afraid of going back and looking closely at previous panels. I believe this is one of the only series included that are finished. I haven't read all of it myself though.

The 7 Deadly Sins is a decent shounen. It's pretty brainless entertainment. Enjoyable, just don't think too hard while reading.

I haven't read the other 6 series, but I've read a large portion of the first Battle Angel Alita series. It wasn't very good, so I dropped it. Storytelling was pretty primitive while simultaneously trying to tackle some pretty heavy topics and sprinkling some ill-fitting humor in there.

The Heroic Legend of Arslan is made by the author of Fullmetal Alchemist. That's a great series, one of my favorites, so that definitely bodes well for this one.

Inuyashiki seems to be made by the author of Gantz (an okay series that I never quite finished; ch300 something of ~500). I'm unsure about fan service, but you can probably expect nudity at the very least. And if it's like Gantz it will probably contain a lot of cool story elements, but mixed into a muddled mess.
Google has a job title called "Head of Black Community Engagement"..
I don't know whether to cry or laugh.. or both.
