Eren Yaeger and everyone he knows lives within a giant walled city, one of a few, housing what is left of the human race from the race of man-eating, humanoid giants outside them known as the Titans. For 100 years, the walls have kept the Titans at bay while the humans try to send out scouting parties to expand their reach. But all that changes in an instant with the appearance of brand new Titans that smash through the outer walls. Suddenly, Eren is ripped away from the world he once knew, with only one thought on his mind to keep him going: revenge against the Titans.
