Much of the human population has been decimated by roving groups of the giant human-like titans that devour men, women and children indiscriminately. Forced to live behind massive stone walls to protect against these attacks, what’s left of the humans try to return to normal life. All that changes upon the arrival of the colossal titan whom damages a portion of the wall allowing the other titans to enter and feast upon the frightened mortals. Relying on the military to protect the civilization, Eren Jaeger and his friends fight to stop the giants before they take away all that’s precious to them.

Toho Co. Ltd. produced the films and distributed them in Japan; FUNimation acquired the distribution rights for North America.

Attack on Titan – Part 1 and Part 2 are based on Hajime Isayama’s popular manga which has also been turned into an anime series.
