Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants 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 of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the city walls is damaged by a 60 meter (196.85 feet) giant causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror the tragic events that follow. Eren vows that he will wipe out every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.
Won the 35th Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga.
Russian / Русский:
Вместо прогресса человечество оказалось отброшено назад появлением расы гигантов. Огромные гуманоиды не обладали ни речью, ни разумом, но при этом пожирали людей, как чипсы, а обычное оружие уровня XIX века оказалось бессильно. Остатки рода людского смогли выжить лишь за циклопическими стенами, которые тройным кольцом опоясали последние поля, города и деревни. Затишье продолжалось сто лет, за это время люди успокоились, армия была сокращена, а городская стража превратилась в дармоедов. Боеспособность сохранил лишь Разведкорпус – но кому нужны самоубийцы, что постоянно рискуют жизнью за стенами, когда можно спокойно сидеть за каменным забором?
Увы, все хорошее кончается. Ужасающий колосс сокрушил внешнюю стену «Мария», и гиганты уничтожили один из городов. Мать юного Эрена погибла, отец пропал, и парень, кипящий жаждой мести, вместе с приемной сестрой Микасой поступил в Корпус, чьи элитные бойцы могут побеждать гигантов один на один. Овладеть системой тросов, лебедок и газовых ускорителей нелегко, но лишь подобная техника помогает делать безумные прыжки и поражать монстров в затылок – единственное уязвимое место. Учиться надо быстро, ибо идет война, и действия врага становятся все агрессивнее – будто за безмозглыми горами плоти стоит чей-то чуждый разум. Или… не такой уж чуждый? Эрену и его друзьям среди боев и сражений предстоит открыть немало пугающих тайн!
