 (回答 Kaitō?)
August 20, 2018
Erwin Smith defends the necessity of the Scout Regiment to the King and assembled nobles. Without the Scouts to fight against the Titans, humanity could face a civil war if the Walls were ever breached again, since there would not be enough food to feed both the people of Wall Sina and Wall Rose. However, his justifications fall on deaf ears and the nobles call for his execution.

Before Erwin can be taken away, Anka Rheinberger announces that Wall Rose has been breached, forcing the nobles to confront the scenario Erwin just spoke of. Though Dot Pyxis calls for an evacuation of the civilians in Wall Rose, the nobles override his order and demand that the gates to Wall Sina be closed. Nile Dawk refuses, and Premier Dhalis Zachary arrives in time to agree. With all branches of the military turned against the Royal Government, they enact a coup d'état and the nobility is arrested. Despite their success though, Erwin expresses misgivings about the new path humanity has taken.

 ( Tsumi?)
August 27, 2018

Eren Jaeger learns the history of how he obtained his Titan and how five years ago his father, Grisha Jaeger, slaughtered most of the Reiss family in order to obtain their power, which was held by Frieda Reiss, the elder half-sister of Historia Reiss.

Meanwhile, the military learns that certain bloodlines are immune to the "Scream" that can alter humanity's memories and that if they do not rescue Eren they may soon forget their coup d'état ever happened. Squad Levi arrives at the rural chapel above the underground one where Eren is being held. They prepare to attack while the Anti-Personnel Control Squad waits for them below.

 (願い Negai?)
September 3, 2018
Levi Ackermann, Hange Zoë, and their squad members battle against Kenny Ackermann and the Anti-Personnel Control Squad in the crystal caverns of the Underground Chapel. Hange is grievously injured by Caven, but overall the Scouts are successful enough to push their enemies back to their final defensive post.

Meanwhile, Rod Reiss pressures his daughter Historia into using a syringe to transform into a Titan so she can eat Eren Jaeger and reclaim the Founding Titan his father had stolen from her sister Frieda. However, Historia realizes that inheriting the Founding Titan will not save anyone because even if her sister had the power to eradicate all the Titans, there is something about inheriting the power that prevents people from using it. She chooses to shatter the syringe and works to free Eren, but her father laps up the remaining fluid and transforms into a Titan.

Outside the Walls of Orvud District
 (オルブド区外壁 Orubudo-ku Gaiheki?)
September 10, 2018
Rod Reiss transforms into a Titan so large that it begins to destroy the cavern in the Underground Chapel as it tries to stand. Historia Reiss refuses to abandon Eren Jaeger and get to safety, and Squad Levi arrives in time to help free him. However, the size and heat emanating from the Titan is so great that escape looks nearly impossible. Eren wallows in despair, but his friends refuse to give up, causing him to take a chance and use a bottle labeled "Armor" that he spots on the ground. Ingesting its contents allow him to use a new hardening ability with his Titan that stabilizes the cavern around his comrades so they can survive.

Squad Levi meets up with Erwin Smith and the rest of the Scout Regiment outside. Rod's Titan is twice the size of the Colossal Titan and they cannot fight it conventionally. They rush to Orvud District where they will make a stand. While there, Levi Ackermann informs Historia that she is to become Queen after this to ensure the success of their coup d'état. She agrees, under one condition.

Ruler of the Walls
 (壁の王 Kabe no Ō?)
September 17, 2018
The Orvud District Garrison prepares a defense against the gargantuan Titan form of Rod Reiss, but their cannons are ineffective and the Scout Regiment prepares a back-up strategy. They build a giant sack out of rope and netting, and stuff it full of barrels of gunpowder. Hange also prepares two carts loaded with gunpowder and equipped with ODM triggers to reel them into their targets when fired.

When the Titan reaches the Wall it plants its hands on top and pulls itself upright, scattering the Garrison, which falls back. Its face has been scraped away by the ground while it was dragging itself. The Scouts take over the Wall's defense and shoot the gunpowder-laden carts into the Titan's hands, which explode, causing it to lose its grip. The Titan slumps over the Wall and Eren charges forward in his Titan form to shove the sack of gunpowder into its gaping mouth. This causes the Titan to explode and Historia Reiss slices the chunk of Titan flesh containing the nape, thus killing her father. She lands in the city below to the shock of the nearby citizens who ask if she is the one who saved them. Historia rises and declares herself the true ruler of the Walls.

Years ago, Kenny Ackermann forged a lasting friendship with Uri Reiss, even though circumstances should have led to one killing the other. As Uri's confidant, Kenny became a part of the government, relieving the persecution of the Ackermann family and allowing him to look after the son of his deceased sister, Kuchel. Though Kenny was taken by Uri's sense of compassion, he found himself unable to understand what would allow a person to be that way, leading him to desire that power for himself and create the Anti-Personnel Control Squad to obtain it.

Now dying, following the collapse of the Underground Chapel, Kenny tells an inquiring Levi how he is related to his mother and why he eventually left him behind.

Two months have passed since Historia Reiss's coronation. She has started a farm to take care of the orphans and the needy. The military has also been overhauled. They now have a new weapon that allows them to kill Titans without risking the lives of soldiers and new recruits have joined the Scout Regiment. At Jean Kirschtein's prompting, Eren Jaeger tries to remember the Scout who appeared in his father's memory and realizes that it is Commandant Keith Sadies of the Cadet Corps.

Eren, his squad, Levi, and Hange visit Keith and hear his story of how he discovered Grisha Jaeger outside of Wall Maria twenty years ago. The two became friends, and Grisha inspired Keith to think he was special. However, Keith suffered many failures, both in his personal life and as an officer, and came to realize he was not special at all. He was with Grisha the night Wall Maria fell, and carried Eren out of the woods after Grisha had taken him there. Keith hoped that Eren would avoid becoming like his father, but even though he sabotaged Eren's training gear when he was a cadet, Eren would not give up. As Eren leaves in the present day, Keith realizes he could not change anything.

The Scout Regiment arrives in Shiganshina District only to discover it is completely devoid of Titans. Eren Jaeger successfully plugs the outer gate leading to the exterior of the Walls, using his Titan's hardening ability and without encountering any enemy resistance.

Armin Arlelt discovers signs of an enemy presence and leads a group of soldiers to search for their hiding place. They uncover Reiner Braun hiding inside the Wall itself, but Levi Ackermann is unable to kill him before Reiner transforms into the Armored Titan. Outside the district, the Beast Titan appears along with a small army of Titans. It hurls a boulder into the breach in the Wall's inner gate, closing off the district's only remaining ground exit and trapping the Scout Regiment's horses on the Titan side of the Wall. This cuts off the Scout Regiment's only way of escape, forcing them to face the Titans.

The Warriors prepare for the incoming Scout Regiment attack. At Zeke's orders, both Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover put away their misgivings to focus on the task at hand. Reiner tells Bertholdt that he will need to be able to think on his own for this battle instead of waiting for Reiner to signal him, and the two agree that now is the time to settle everything once and for all.

Though the Scout Regiment later manages to incapacitate Reiner by partially decapitating his human body while he is still in his Titan, he manages to roar, signaling the Beast Titan to throw the barrel containing Bertholdt into Shiganshina District. The Scouts scatter, but Bertholdt does not immediately transform into the Colossal Titan after seeing the extent of Reiner's injuries. He asks Reiner to lay on his back to protect himself and confronts the Scouts alone. Armin Arlelt tries talking Bertholdt down, but the latter refuses and admits he only agreed to talk as a way to test his own resolve and willingness to fight them. After Mikasa Ackermann fails to kill him, Bertholdt leaves and uses his omni-directional mobility gear to ascend high into the air where he transforms into the Colossal Titan.

Zeke finishes off the remainder of the Scout Regiment recruits and pities them for wasting their lives. However, he is startled by Levi Ackermann, whose arrival was hidden by the Scouts' diversionary charge. Levi soundly defeats Zeke's Beast Titan, but before he can use a Titan injection to feed Zeke to a surviving Scout, the Cart Titan attacks Levi and then runs away with Zeke. Zeke sends his remaining Titans to finish off Levi.

Meanwhile, Armin Arlelt splits his squad into two teams. Most of the squad leaves to hold off the Armored Titan and succeeds, thanks to the timely reappearance of Hange Zoë. Armin wakes up Eren Jaeger who is comatose in his Titan, and relays a plan that will allow them to defeat Bertholdt Hoover's Colossal Titan. Eren falls off the Wall and pretends to be unconscious while Armin distracts Bertholdt and goads him into using up all his energy to burn him alive. When Armin finally collapses, Bertholdt moves on to deal with Eren, but discovers Eren has secretly used his hardening powers to plug the remaining hole in the Wall. Eren ambushes Bertholdt from behind with ODM gear, and cuts him out of his Titan's nape, ending the battle.

Grisha Jaeger is consumed by regret over the loss of his family and his cause, but Eren Kruger convinces him to take up his mission and retake the Founding Titan from the King who refuses to use it to save the Eldian people. To do that, Kruger passes on his Titan to Grisha, calling it the Attack Titan.

In present day, Eren Jaeger realizes that due to the "Curse of Ymir" he has less than eight years to live, and Armin Arlelt has thirteen, since he just recently inherited the Colossal Titan. They attend a military audience to go over the findings in the basement and Hange Zoë says they may have to consider the rest of the world as their enemies due to the fact the people outside the Walls fear the Subjects of Ymir. When Hange discusses the fact that Eren was able to use the Founding Titan despite not being of royal blood, he realizes that he was only able to do so because he had touched the Titan form of Dina Fritz at that time. He keeps this information to himself out of fear of what the military might do to Historia Reiss if they knew.

The Other Side of the Wall
 (壁の向こう側 Kabe no Mukougawa?)
July 1, 2019
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 in 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 this sight – one that he so longed for and idealized as a symbol of freedom – in reality offers no freedom at all, but that the other side of the sea is where their true enemies are.
