What made Attack on Titan so popular was its decent mixture of Genres like Horror, Fantasy and Action, and its remarkable storyline. On a surreal planet earth, the human race was attacked by giant creatures called Titans. The humans tried to protect themselves in special cities behind think walls, but one day the Titans also attack them. Within this chaos of war and escape, the young Eren Jäger loses his mother to death and is left behind with his adopted sister Mikasa and his best friend Armin.
