Introduction
Survey Corps Logo
Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by Titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest Titans. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a Titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a Colossal Titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller Titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is murdered and eaten. Eren vows that he will exterminate every single Titan and take revenge for all of mankind. Nominated for the 4th Manga Taisho Awards (2011) and won the Kodansha Manga Award shōnen category (2011). In English, the series is roughly translated to 'Attack on Titan'.

Latest Chapter
Chapter 80 Cover

The Unknown Soldiers is the 80th chapter of the Attack on Titan manga, written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama.


The Survey Corps watch in shock as the motionless body of Eren's Titan is stranded atop Wall Maria, wondering if he's still alive, but they avert their attention from Eren and focus on the Colossus Titan who continues to approach the wall. Jean orders his comrades to draw his attention while Mikasa shoots Thunder Spears into the Titan's nape, but Bertolt easily sees through their scheme and releases a burst of hot steam, deflecting the Thunder Spears and burning the Special Operations Squad. Armin goes to help a wounded Mikasa and admits that he still doesn't have any plan to save them from their predicament. A loud explosion occurs shortly after and the scouts watch in horror as a fully recovered Armored Titan stands up, ready to rejoin the fight.

On the inner part of the wall, Levi urges Erwin to order the retreat and save the few survivors, but Erwin reveals that he still has an strategy to defeat the Beast Titan, though at the cost of his and the new recruits' lives. He admits that the only thing that stops him is his desire to live long enough to see the basement, but Levi prompts him to forget his dreams and sacrifice himself for the greater good.

Erwin leads the recruits into a direct suicide attack against the Beast Titan to serve as decoys while Levi sneaks through the surrounding horde of Titans, using them as trees to maneuver with his gear as he approaches the Beast Titan in order to land a surprise attack. Erwin and his troops continue riding towards the enemy, using Signal Flares to obstruct his aim. As The Beast Titan launches a barrage of rocks towards them, Erwin and all the soldiers are struck by the debris.

Erwin Smith character image
Erwin Smith (エルヴィン・スミス Eruvin Sumisu?), often formally refereed to as Commander Erwin Smith, is the 13th commander of the Survey Corps.

Far-thinking, intelligent, respected, Erwin is an able commander, and while he cares deeply for his men, he does not hesitate to sacrifice them for the good and prosperity of mankind, and his men have proven more than willing to stake their lives at his order. He developed the Long-Distance Enemy Scouting Formation and due to much pressure on the Survey Corps, he later named Hange Zoë as his successor.
