During the attack, Eren watches in horror how a Titan eats his mother, while his father disappears after handing Eren the key of the basement of his house, but not before entrusting him to come back home one day. After the disappearance of his father, Eren swears to kill all the Titans and decides to enlist in the army along with his friends.

Five years later, the three young people have graduated as cadets and at that time live in the Trost District, one of the border cities that stands out from Wall Rose. However, the same gigantic Titan appears and the story is repeated again. 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.
