"That day, the human race remembered the terror of being dominated by them, and the shame of being held captive in a birdcage..." — Over 100 years ago, a natural predator of humanity appeared: the Titans, giant humanoid but mindless monsters whose sole purpose of existence seemed to be to devour humans. There was an insurmountable gap in power between them and mankind, and as a result, humanity was rapidly exterminated to the brink of extinction. The survivors responded by constructing three concentric walls: Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sheena, which graced them with a century of peace. However, one day a Colossus Titan far larger than any other seen before breached the outer wall, allowing the smaller Titans to invade the human territory and forcing the survivors to retreat to the inner walls. Eren Yeager, a boy whose mother was eaten during the invasion, vowed to wipe every last Titan off the face of the Earth, and joined the military determined to exact his revenge.
On the first day of training, Ymir and Christa venture outside and fetch refreshments for Sasha after her 5 hour-long run as a punishment. Ymir acts apathetic and shows little care for Sasha's well-being, telling Christa that she could use Sasha's stupidity to her advantage.
Ymir graduates in the 104th class outside the top 10, which Christa deems that she deserved to be there more than her. It is implied that she intentionally gives less than her full effort so that Christa could have the 10th slot. After graduation, she follows Christa into the Scout Regiment.
At Utgard Castle, the scouts
prepare to battle the Titans. Two hours earlier, the recruits had discussed Conny's village and the Titan he found atop his house,
though Ymir trivialized his concerns. Later, Reiner
visits Ymir as she searches for food and hands him a can of herring. However, Reiner is unable to read the writing on the can and wonders how Ymir is able to understand it.
Before she can explain, Lynne alerts the scouts of the approaching Titans. As the senior officers battle the Titans in the open, the recruits are left to ensure the Titans do not infiltrate the castle. Reiner heads down alone to check for Titans and comes across one at the lower levels, barricading the door as best he can. When the Titan nearly catches him, he recalls a day five years ago where he and Bertholdt witnessed a friend getting eaten by a Titan. The others come to his rescue and send a cannon to block the doorway, but a smaller Titan steps through and attacks Conny.
Reiner defends Conny and the recruits toss the Titan out a window, but Reiner's arm is severely injured. Christa treats Reiner's wound, and outside the scouts continue to fight. Suddenly, the Beast Titan begins throwing chunks of Wall Rose at the scouts, killing Lynne and Henning along with all the horses. As the Beast Titan sends another horde their way, Gelgar and Nanaba fight them off as best they can until both run out of gas and blades and are caught by the Titans.
The recruits are left to fend for themselves, and Ymir decides to fight. Taking Conny's dagger, she asks for Christa to remember a promise they made years ago during their training. Jumping from the top of the castle into the horde of Titans,
Ymir slices her palm and transforms into a Titan.
Above Fort Slava, Marley prepares an airstrike as Galliard's Jaws and Pieck's Cartman lead the 800-warrior unit in a charge against the Mid-East Allied Forces. Falco attempts to save an Allied soldier's life, though the soldier is ungrateful and disgusted towards the Eldians. As Commander Magath and Colt survey the situation, the signal is given for the Marley zeppelin to begin the next phase of the attack. From above, Zeke transforms parachuting Eldian captives into Titans with his Titan power, creating a devastating airstrike. The warrior cadets look on as Titans begin eating the soldiers.
Reiner Braun joins the battle as the Armored Titan, destroying the remaining anti-Titan artillery as Galliard assists. Once the coast is clear, Zeke joins the ground forces as the Beast Titan and uses leftover artillery in the fortress to destroy the Mid-East naval fleet stationed in the nearby bay. The fleet is destroyed, but artillery fire from the ships heavily damages the Armored Titan. A peace treaty between Marley and the Mid-East is later signed, but the outcome of the battle reminded Marley of the growing need to acquire the Founding Titan.
