Imagine you’re chilling in a village with your friends and family then a herd of giants rampage through your town, causing massive destruction and eating your loved ones right before your very eyes!

Horrifying, isn’t it? That’s Eren Jaeger’s life.

Humanity has been compacted into a massive walled city  to protect themselves from the “Titans”,  huge humanoid beings with insatiable desires to eat humans.

Eren has lived peacefully in the city until Titans smashed through the city walls. He managed to escape the invasion but one Titan ate his beloved mother.

Eren swears revenge. He enters the Survey Corps with his best friends Mikasa and Armin. This special military division fights Titans and reclaim lands originally inhabited by humans before the Titan infestations. Eren discovers more about himself and the Titans’ origins the further along his journey with the Corps.

Attack on Titan is a dark manga that will keep you hooked with its mysteries. Everything turns out deeper than it what appears to be on the surface. Eren is more than merely human and the Titans are not only “Titans”.

There’s a surprise in every volume that will go:

  1. I think I’ll leave Attack on Titan to the anime. That’s one story I’d rather see in all it’s animated glory; it was beautiful. I’ve recently gotten into a manga called The Promised Neverland. Have you heard of it?
