Summary

The story begins with Eren Jaeger living peacefully with his family, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackermann and his only friend Armin Arlert. They live in Shiganshina District, one of the main cities located in Wall Maria.

However, everything changes when one fateful day the Colossal Titan creates a huge breach that allows the entry of Titans into the city. During the attack, Eren watches in horror how a Titan eats his mother while his father disappears after handing Eren the key to the basement of his house. After the disappearance of his father, Eren swears to kill all the Titans and decides to enlist in the 104th Training Corps along with his friends.

Five years later, the three young friends have graduated as cadets and at that time live in the Trost District, one of the border cities that stands out from Wall Rose. The same gigantic Titan appears and the same story is repeated. In the subsequent battle, Eren manages to save Armin from being eaten by a Titan at the cost of being devoured. While all hope of survival seemed to be extinguished, an atypical Titan appears attacking the other Titans instead of the humans. This Titan is revealed as Eren who for some reason can transform into a Titan, to everyone’s surprise.

Although some people, such as the nobles, the clergy and the Military Police consider Eren as a threat even after helping them to recover the Trost District, other see this ability as an opportunity to save humanity. Eren is subjected to a military trial in which it was finally decided that he should be part of the Survey Corps, assigning him to the Special Operations Squad under the command of Captain Levi Ackermann.

As the story continues, many mysteries are revealed regarding Eren’s ability to transform into Titan, from the reasons why he got such power to the fact that he is not the only one who possesses this ability. The origins of the Titans, the revelation of their true enemies, and the decisions Eren must make about the future of humanity, of his friends and his own are also discovered.
