    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.

Flash forward to the present and the southern district of Shinganshina has not seen a Titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the outer district walls is damaged by a 60 meter (196.85 feet) Titan causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller Titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror the tragic events that follow, as the Titans devour people uninpeded. Eren vows that he will wipe out every single Titan and take revenge for all of mankind.

    Born into the royal family, every move by Chu Yuan needs to be cautious; constantly afraid that one moment of carelessness will cause him to lose everything. After ascending to the throne at 18, not half a year passes before civil strife erupts in Yun Nan. Though the intentions of the old guard at the royal court are not exactly the same, all are waiting to see how the new emperor will resolve this situation.

    Unexpectedly, before this incident comes to a head, the King of Xi Nan, Duan Bai Yue, had already personally commanded troops to battle a few thousand miles away. Not half a year has passed when peace has already been restored.

    With sparse moonlight shining into the royal palace, Chu Yuan stamped a wax seal on a secret letter, and had it sent urgently to Yun Nan 800 miles away -- this time, what will we be asked for in exchange?

    Brush marks can be seen on the back of the paper, almost as if it can be seen how angry the young emperor is when he wrote this line.
    Duan Bai Yue spread out a piece of paper slowly, and replied deliberately with one word.

    You.
