Summary

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Elen and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Elen vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Nominated for the 4th Manga Taisho Awards (2011).

I actually didn't know this was a thing before the anime came out, and even then I wasn't that interested in the anime, but it then got big on Tumblr and stuff and I'm like: "UGH FINE" and watched it. Omf. So happy I did. I rarely follow a manga after the anime, but this got me hooked so bad I just had to continue to see what happened. I also wanted to see more of my adorable Levi. <3 -fangirling-

Nice story if eren stops yelling

You know what... Eren's titan form is pretty freaking weak... the only thing he's got for himself is that screech of doom

    Sssooooooo are Mikasa and Levi are related? If Levi is Kenny's nephew (Kenny's dead sister's son), which would mean that Levi is Levi Ackerman? And could possibly be related to Mikasa? Maybe it's in the genes that both are super strong and badass in fighting?

    Hhhmmmm

    May 12, 2015 4:57 pm

    There is acaully a high chance that Levi will die they first introduced him in a side character manner but later on in the manga you slowly got attached you his somewhat bad ass attitude and tragic back story they even gave him what was needed in order for him to turn into a titan which could be used as last resort. But with the role they gave him if they killed him off now that would bring more focus to the main character Eren not only that but it would place a truly tragic death in the manga that could lead to the Finnish of this one and have people waiting for a number Attack on titan 2, since a alot of stories that have horror dont go out without a tragic death like Tokyo ghoul for example.

  3. (^_^) May 12, 2015 10:18 am

    wait what???so kenny is levi's uncle and levi is a pure blood ackerman??? id ont know if i got that right....so this story is getting more interesting for me...and now i wonder when is the next release of chapter????

    How many people died and how many are going to die? And I also know that eren or mikasa is going to die at the end. This anime is the best but I hate when they make everybody die because its not fun anymore.

    the Ackermans seem to want to follow one person. kenny's was uri, levi's is the captain, and Micasa's is eren. sorry if i spelled any of the names wrong but you get the point. any one else notice?

  9. What if??? May 8, 2015 8:28 am

    Will Levi at some point use that to be a Titan?ackerman are special, what if they can control a Titan body without eating a person with power to control a Titan?
    Ah god, I want to know..unless the mangaka want to kill Levi, coz if he inject that there's no turning back, he'll be the same, mindless Titan and killed!

  10. lalami May 7, 2015 8:03 pm

    if levi dies then im gona go berserk like he did when farhlan and isabela died
    and i idont know whom i would end up killing

    Why are some people saying that Levi is going to die??????? I have been seeing that on other manga website forums and such. He can't die!!!

    • MOI?
      May 7, 2015 6:41 pm

      Darn right! If he dies, i'm sorry, but i'd stop reading this altogether (mangakas are unpredictable gods after all). I know it's all about the story and whatnot, but no, that's something i will not accept. Period ( ̄へ ̄)

    • no solid source but May 7, 2015 8:36 pm

      All I remember is that at one point the mangaka said it possible that he would kill off a huge amount of characters by the end of the manga. Not sure if he changed his mind or not.

      Maybe because in the previous chapter Historia cut off Rod Reiss's head and a lot of people thought it was Levi...

    • Anonymous April 12, 2015 9:18 am

      I just don't like how she's hard to read...she's always flip flopping. I can't trust her, idk whether i should hate or like her.

    • Sakura April 12, 2015 3:55 pm

      I don't like her... yet. I feel that she's still kinda easily swayed and whimsical. She lacks a sense of purpose, unlike Eren. That's why I'm more drawn to characters like Eren, Levi, Armin, Jean, Mikasa and so on than to Historia. Anyway, it depends on how she'll turn out to be in the next couples of chapters.

    Did anyone heart break when Eren remembered his mothers death? I know I did, heart breaking moment.

    so I was rewatching the first ep on my 3DS because a game is coming out on the eshop called Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains so they're playing the eps on there and I realized when the father left for his appointments that he had the key before shit happen and then it hit me, now it makes sense in why Eren had the key when he woke up after his home was wrecked and that dream he had (that got explained in a chapter). but what isn't explained is how the dad found Eren and took him away to the forest area from Mikasa of all people without her knowing... unless she did know but since Eren didn't remember she didn't say anything.

    well, lets hope it gets explained somewhere. anyways, next month huh? i'll be patient.

    March 25, 2015 6:49 pm

    I honestly don't know where this story is going anymore. You could probably just add a flamingo titan that turns into a gundam and explodes to save humanity but it was all an elaborate dream Levi had and he slips on his bunny slippers and sips morning coffee. The End. Or is it...?

    • Shinobi12
      April 8, 2015 8:35 am

      if you reread the manga, youll find that there is actually a lot of foreshadowing leading to these events. its definetly going somewhere. erans dad even mentioned that everything hinged on him being able to control this power. also he said that if the power confuses you let thier memories act as a guide. you couldnt possibly think his dad just randomly turned his son into a titan for no reason? this author is a genius. i cant wait till everything ties together. it will be epic

    • Airi
      April 9, 2015 5:05 am

      Of course he wouldn't turn his son into a titan for no reason. I see many of the connections (admittedly not all) but I see the reveals as more anti-climatic. I enjoy the "grand scheme" theme of this manga but I feel it severely lacks logic. It's hard to explain when you know something but you're not sure how it makes sense but it does, just not in the way you'd hoped and that's exactly where I am right now. I do love the manga and at this point, purely for its characters. (=・ω・=)

    • Anon64 April 10, 2015 5:22 am

      i totally get what your saying. its like, when you have exspectations and they arnt met. even it something is good, you cant seem to like it because its not what you initially anticipated :) makes scense. i was that way with dawn of the arcana. i couldnt like the main charecter. even though he turned out to be decent, i had decided in chapter one that i loved loki, so no matter what ceaser did, my mind had already decided who i liked.

    • Miwa April 11, 2015 7:24 am

      I doubt he'll die. Fan favourites are rarely killed off because the author knows it'll piss readers off. And Levi is pretty darn popular with the Japanese readers.
