"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.
As Eren mourns for his deceased friend Armin, he is confronted by Zeke. Zeke recognizes Eren, attempting to tell him about his father Grisha brainwashing him, but is interrupted by the arrival of Levi Ackerman. Before he leaves, however, Zeke promises to rescue Eren. As Eren prepares to give Levi his gas tanks, he hears Armin cough.
Hange attempts to interrogate a captive Reiner, but when she is unable to get any meaningful information from him, she attempts to behead him but is then stopped when Jean suggests taking his Titan powers from him. Unconvinced that the Titan serum should be used yet, Hange tells Mikasa to check on Eren and Armin, and to alert her if Reiner should be killed. However, shortly afterwards Zeke and the Quadrupedal Titan appear and rescue Reiner, nearly killing Hange.
As Eren frantically tries to keep Armin alive, he begs Levi to save Armin's life with the Titan serum. Levi agrees, but is stopped by the arrival of the surviving Survey Corpsrecruit who is carrying Erwin's near-lifeless body. Seeing that Erwin is still alive, Levi announces that he has changed his mind, and will instead use the Serum to save Erwin. The others object to this and turn on Levi while Zeke watches from atop Wall Maria with Reiner.
During the Beast Titan's assault on their position, this soldier panics thinking the incoming boulders were cannonfire. In a frantic state, he lets the horses escape and says that it would be pointless to watch them if no one is going to survive for the return home. When Erwin Smith gives his plan of a suicide charge against the Beast Titan to the recruits, this soldier asks if they are going to die and if it is even worth fighting if they are all destined to die anyways. Erwin agrees that they are all likely to die, but he urges the recruits to fight for the good of humanity nonetheless so that the living can give meaning to their deaths. He then participates in the suicidal charge.
