With the final season of the animated manga adaptation written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), undergoing an animation studio change (shifting from the hands of Wit Studio to the hands of MAPPA Studios), almost all the members of the original production team were replaced, except for a single person, the animation director, 3D, Shuuhei Yabuta. Who wrote via Twitter:

“Wit Studio is a much more traditional production company. I am not saying that in a bad way, I am referring more to the way of carrying out the plans and the details of the production. They solve things step by step and strive according to this process. On the other hand, MAPPA is more flexible and adaptable depending on the situation. While they can be reckless at times, they always find an efficient way to achieve the desired results. ”

A century ago, human beings faced extinction when an unbeatable and terrifying enemy appeared: the titans, gigantic monsters that devoured much of humanity and forced the few survivors to confine themselves behind high walls. Behind those walls is Eren Jaeger, a boy who dreams of crossing them to see the outside world and who lives his day to day with his parents, his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and his friend Armin Arlert.

However, one fateful day, humanity remembers once again its fate when a gargantuan sixty meter titan appears before the first row of walls that protect humans from their most fearsome enemy. Thus, Eren, Mikasa and Armin lose their home and all hope as our protagonist takes an oath: his goal in life will be to destroy all the titans. In this way, a story of survival and war begins in which its characters must unravel the mystery behind the existence of these horrible beings.
