“Attack on Titan” is based on the popular manga series of the same name (“Shingeki no Kyojin” in Japanese), which tells the story of a world where most of humanity has been destroyed by giants and where the last of mankind fights to survive behind three concentric walls – walls that were once impenetrable to the giants. With more than 50 million copies in print today, “Attack on Titan” has also inspired four spin-off manga as well as a 25-episode anime series which FUNimation both simulcast and released to home video in North America.
