"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 decided to exact his revenge.
With Eren finally awake, Armin concludes their discussion of a plan to defeat the Colossus Titan. In the city below, Jean, Mikasa, Sasha, and Connie plan to defeat the Armored Titan, but Reiner flees. Mikasa cripples him with her Thunder Spear, and the others start the attack. Reiner is dazed, having lost his memory of everything after his farewell to Bertolt. Bertolt laments at his failure to kill the recruits and wonders what Armin is planning.
Before executing their plan, Armin reminds Eren of their promise to see the ocean. Eren pretends to fall to the ground in defeat while Armin jumps to the Colossus Titan. Mikasa and the recruits continue their attack on Reiner, and Sasha is injured. Armin manages to grapple onto the Colossus Titan's teeth, causing Bertolt to send out great amounts of steam. Seeing Armin's perseverance, Bertolt increases the power of his attack to kill Armin quickly. As Armin is burned alive, he remarks that Eren must see the ocean in his stead.
As the plan to defeat Reiner is on the verge of failure, Hange returns to assist as Mikasa lands the final blow to Reiner, sending him flying out of the Armored Titan's nape. As Bertolt inspects Eren's fallen Titan form, he realizes that it is only a hardened shell. With his Vertical Maneuvering Equipment, Eren strikes at the Colossus Titan's nape, pulling Bertolt out. He lands on the roofs next to Armin's corpse, noting that Armin was the bravest of his comrades.
Armin Arlert (アルミン・アルレルト Arumin Arureruto?, also spelled as Armin Arlelt in the FUNimation dub of the anime) was a childhood friend of Eren Yeager and Mikasa Ackerman, and was one of the two deuteragonists of the series. Although he appeared to be the physically weakest of the 104th Training Corps, his high intelligence and strategic genius made him an invaluable asset, especially when paired with Hange Zoë's mind.
Growing up, the naturally curious Armin had a deep fascination with the world beyond the Walls, and even enthused his best friend, Eren, into sharing this passion. Much of his free time was spent reading any book about the outside world he could find. He was exceptionally loyal and selfless, constantly worrying for the safety of his friends, and ready to throw himself into dangerous situations for them; even offering to sacrifice himself for Mikasa during the Battle of Trost.
