Attack on Titan (Japanese: 進撃の巨人, literally “Attacking Titan”) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama. The manga has been published in Shōnen Magazine (Kodansha) on 2009 and is still ongoing, with the tankobon #21 being published in December 2016. If you’ve never heard of this series we strongly suggest to do it now, as we’re talking about one of the biggest hits in the horror/fantasy/action manga history together with Berserk, Claymore and other great shows.
The manga has ben masterfully adapted by Production I.G, who released a stunning Season 1 in 2013 and – as the trailer suggests – is almost ready to release the Season 2.
The series is set in a world where humanity lives in cities surrounded by enormous walls; a defense against the Titans, gigantic humanoids that eat humans seemingly without apparent reasons. Eren Yeager is the main character of the story, together with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and childhood friend Armin Arlert: in the first arc of the story the three friends join the military to fight the Titans after their home town is invaded and Eren’s mother is eaten. However, as the story progresses and the truths about the Titans are slowly revealed to the reader, the narrative shifts to encompass other characters such as: Historia Reiss, Levi Ackerman, Eren’s father Grisha Yeager and many others.
