I'm just curious. It's been establised that it's not in Asia, as Mikasa is one of the last Asians. Does it say where it's set in the world in the manga?

I would think central Europe. With many of the characters seem to have German or close to German sounding names.

Can't believe how much I've loved this series. Breathe of fresh air for me.

I thought it was Europe due to the design of the regalia and crests and stuff. It has a Euro look to it. Plus almost all of the characters look like white people, but I guess you could make that argument about any anime. It certainly isn't Africa. I can say that for sure.

@KingOfAsh: @Supreme Marvel: @sickVisionz:

I have the answers for you. It's based on a real city called Carcassonne, located in south France in the former province of Languedoc.

Please see Crunchyroll article link.

It wouldn't be UK, we don't have them type of fields. We usually just build houses or office buildings where there is land.

@takashichea: I was close with Germany. Right next door.
