On his first day of junior high, Eren Jaeger comes face-to-face with a Titan—and has his lunch stolen! From that day on, he holds a grudge against Titans for taking his favorite food from him, a cheeseburger, vowing to eliminate their kind once and for all. Along with his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackermann and friend Armin Arlelt, the trio traverse the halls of Titan Junior High, encountering familiar faces and participating in various extracurricular activities such as being a part of the Wall Cleanup Club, led by Rico Brzenska.
A parody of the immensely popular parent series, Attack on Titan: Junior High places beloved characters as junior high school students, fighting to protect their lunches from gluttonous Titans. The spin-off incorporates gags while using Attack on Titan's story and notable scenes as its basis.
