Synopsis from Shingeki no Kyojin

A century ago, human beings faced extinction when an unbeatable and terrifying enemy appeared: the Titans, gigantic monsters that devoured much of humanity and forced the few survivors to confine themselves behind high walls. Behind those walls is Eren Jaeger, a boy who dreams of crossing them to get to know the outside world and who lives his day to day with his parents, his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and his friend Armin Arlert.

However, one fateful day, humanity remembers once again its destiny when a gargantuan sixty-meter titan appears before the first row of walls that protect humans from their most fearsome enemy. Thus, Eren, Mikasa and Armin lose their home and all hope at the same time that our protagonist takes an oath: his goal in life will be to end all the Titans. In this way, a story of survival and war begins in which their characters must reveal the mystery behind the existence of these horrible beings.
