"That day, the human race remembered the terror of being dominated by them, and the shame of being held captive in a birdcage..." — Over 100 years ago, a natural predator of humanity appeared: the Titans, giant humanoid but mindless monsters whose sole purpose of existence seemed to be to devour humans. There was an insurmountable gap in power between them and mankind, and as a result, humanity was rapidly exterminated to the brink of extinction. The survivors responded by constructing three concentric walls: Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sina, which graced them with a century of peace. However, one day a Colossal Titan far larger than any other seen before breached the outer wall, allowing the smaller Titans to invade the human territory and forcing the survivors to retreat to the inner walls. Eren Jaeger, a boy whose mother was eaten during the invasion, vowed to wipe every last Titan off the face of the Earth, and joined the military determined to exact his revenge.
Floch is, by his own admission, a coward. Part of Floch's cowardice seems to stem from a belief that his death should not be "meaningless," as he expressed during the Battle of Shiganshina District. Despite this, Floch has proved himself to be capable of acting courageously. He was willing, despite his fear, to participate in Erwin Smith's suicide charge against the Beast Titan, and was willing to stand up to his fellow soldiers when they suggested allowing Erwin to die in favor of saving the life of Armin Arlelt, even going so far as to risk being attacked by Mikasa Ackermann to keep her from taking the Titan injection from Levi.
Jean Kirstein (ジャン・キルシュタイン Jan Kirushutain?) is a graduate of the 104th Training Corps, among whom he ranked 6th best. Jean hails from Wall Rose's Trost District, and joined the military with hopes of obtaining a peaceful life as part of the Military Police Brigade, but would later find himself joining the Survey Corps.
After coming of age, Jean enlists into the military, joining the 104th Training Corps. On the day of his enlistment, Jean confidently admits his desire of joining the Military Police and receives a headbutt from Keith Shadis for his troubles. That night, Jean overhears Eren Yeager talking about his desire to join the Survey Corps and criticizes him for the decision, but apologizes after seeing that his words have upset Eren. As the trainees file out of the mess hall, Jean sees Mikasa and, immediately taking a liking to her, tries to talk to her but she immediately blows him off in favor of talking to Eren. Devastated, Jean develops a grudge against Eren. The following night, after performing well during his first day of Vertical maneuvering equipment aptitude training, Jean is approached by Eren for tips on how to maintain balance, but only ridicules him for his poor performance.
The royal government decides to release the information contained in Grisha Jaeger's journals to the general public, causing some chaos as people try to accept the news. Some do not. However, progress on killing Titans with the Executioner from Hell continues until there are scarcely any left, and refugees are allowed to resettle Wall Maria.
A year after the attack on Trost District and six years after the fall of Wall Maria, the Scout Regiment is able to launch an expedition past Wall Maria to explore the land outside. They see the wall where the Restorationists were turned into Titans, and eventually arrive at the sea; a body of salt water so vast it stretches to the horizon. Most of the Scouts are happy to play in the surf, but Eren Jaeger is pensive, knowing that their enemies live on the other side of the sea.
The remnants of the Survey Corps, Marleyan military, and Anti-Marleyan Volunteers gather in a small and wary group to stop Eren Yeager, but several of them find it difficult to understand and trust one another given that they have been fighting for so long. Annie Leonhart is concerned that Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert have no alternative if reasoning with Eren fails, and Jean Kirstein learns the truth behind the death of Marco Bott. But they also realize that they have only been fighting because none of them took the time to talk before, and they are now.
Hange Zoë's plan is to go to the harbor and retrieve Kiyomi Azumabito's flying boat so they can approach the Founding Titan, but once they are on their way, Pieck Finger returns from scouting ahead to announce that the Yeagerists are aware of their plans and have already taken over the harbor.
