hundred of years ago, humans were almost exterminated by titans. the titans were gigantic, had no intelligence and devour humans. a small group of humans survived by building themselves a city protected by extremely high walls. hundred of years later, the humans had increased its numbers. the titans haven't appear for many years. one day, Eren and his sister Mikasa witnessed the city wall being destroyed by a titan that appeared out of thin air and started devouring humans.
despite the dark backdrop and odd character art, the uniqueness of the plot itself was truly impressive. for the first few episodes, things and explanations were fairy jumbled up, with dreams and fears carved into their lives. fortunately soon enough things got interesting, with magnificent fighting scenes. there were very little dull moment throughout the series, some even left behind impressions deep enough that required a re-watch.
