The human race was once the dominant species on the planet... before the Titans emerged. Giant humanoid creatures, their only goal is seemingly to devour humans on sight, but they don't take in nourishment from food. Regurgitating the corpses when they are full, Titans appear to crave humans simply out of urge or instinct. After being pushed to the brink of extinction, humanity enjoyed 100 years of peace safely protected within enormous walls until one day, a Colossal Titan appears and breaches the wall in the Shiganshina District.
