これ以上の地獄はないだろうと信じたかった
されど人類最悪の日はいつも唐突に

扉を叩く音は絶えず酷く無作法で
招かれた最悪の日は悪夢のように

過ぎし日を抗うもの
奴らは駆逐すべき敵だ
あの日どんな顔で 瞳で
俺達を見つめていた

何を捨てれば悪魔をも凌げる?
命さえ 魂さえ 決して惜しくは超えない

捧げよ! 捧げよ! 心臓を捧げよ!
全ての犠牲は今、この時のために
捧げよ! 捧げよ! 心臓を捧げよ!
進むべき未来を その手で切り拓け

kore ijou no jigoku wa nai darou to shinjitakatta
saredo jirui saiaku no hi wa itsumo toutotsu ni

tobira o tataku to wa taezu hidoku musabore
manugareta saiaku no hi wa akumu no you ni

sugishi hi o aragau mono
yatsura wa kuchiku subeki teki da

ano hi no unmei ga oni hitomi de
oretachi o mitsumeteita

nani o sutereba akuma o oshinokeru
inochi sae tamashii sae
kesshite oshiku koenai

sasageyo! sasageyo! shinzou o sasageyo!
subete no gisei wa ima, kono toki no tame ni

sasageyo! sasageyo! shinzou o sasageyo!
susumu beki mirai o
sono te de kirihirake!

We wanted to believe that this hell can’t get worse
But mankind’s worst day always comes out of the blue…

The ceaseless sound of knocking a rude awakening
Followed by a catastrophic light much like a nightmare

The ones who turned their backs to our days past
Are enemies that we must exterminate
Just what kind of expressions did they wear
As they gazed upon us on that day?

What do we need to throw away to overcome the demons?
Take my life…take my soul…I don’t give a damn!

Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Every sacrifice led to this moment
Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Carve out with your own hands a path to the future

Opfert eure Herzen

これ以上の地獄は 無いだろうと信じたかった
されど人類最悪の日は いつも唐突に

扉を叩く音は 絶えず酷く無作法で
招かれざる災厄の灯は 悪夢のように

過ぎし日を裏切る者 奴等は駆逐すべき敵だ
あの日どんな顔で 瞳で 俺達を見つめていた

何を捨てれば悪魔をも凌げる?
命さえ 魂さえ 決して惜しくなどはない

捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!
全ての犠牲は 今この瞬間の為に

捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!
進むべき未来を その手で斬り拓け

過ぎし日を偽る者 奴等は憎悪すべき敵だ
あの日どんな声で 言葉で 俺達を騙っていた

何を学べば悪魔をも屠れる?
技術でも 戦術でも 全て無駄になどしない

捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!
全ての努力は 今この瞬間の為に
捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!

謳うべき勝利を その手で掴み取れ
得体の知れない化け物が 人間と似た顔をしてやがる
この世から一匹残らず 奴等を駆逐してやる
最初に言い出したのは誰か? そんな事憶えちゃいないが
忘れられない怒りがある 必ず駆逐してやる

嗚呼 選び悔いた道の先は どんな≪景色≫に繋がっている?
唯 捧げられた≪人生≫を糧に咲く 尊き彼岸(悲願)の勝利
約束の地は楽園の果て

あの日 人類は思い出した
ヤツらに支配されていた恐怖を
鳥籠の中に囚われていた屈辱を

黄昏を(弓矢)は翔る (翼)を背負い
その(軌跡)が自由への道となる

捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!
全ての苦難は 今この瞬間の為に――

捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!
儚き命を 燃える(弓矢)に変えて
捧げよ! 捧げよ! (心臓)を捧げよ!

誇るべき(軌跡)を その身で描きだせ

Offer Up Your Hearts

We wanted to believe that this hell can’t get worse
But mankind’s worst day always comes out of the blue…

The ceaseless sound of knocking a rude awakening
Followed by a catastrophic light much like a nightmare

The ones who turned their backs to our days past
Are enemies that we must exterminate
Just what kind of expressions did they wear
As they gazed upon us on that day?

What do we need to throw away to overcome the demons?
Take my life…take my soul…I don’t give a damn!

Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Every sacrifice led to this moment
Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Carve out with your own hands a path to the future

The ones who painted our days past with lies
Are enemies that we must hate
Just what kind of voice and words did they use
As they deceived us on that day?

What do we need to learn to destroy the demons?
Be it skills…be it strategy…I won’t let any of them go to waste!

Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
All our hard work led to this moment
Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Take into your own hands a victory we shall sing of

These strange monsters dare to hide behind a human face
I’ll exterminate each and every single one of them
But who said it first? Though I can’t really remember
I’ll never forget this anger; I’ll definitely exterminate them all

Ah…what kind of <scenery>[place] lies beyond a path full of regrets?
This is merely…a noble victory of earnest wishes and deaths, blossoming atop sacrificed <lives>
The promised land lies beyond paradise…

On that day, humanity recalled
The fear of living under their oppression…
The humiliation of being imprisoned like caged birds…

Arrows soar through the sunset, bearing wings on their backs
And their trails will pave the path to freedom

Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
All of our suffering led to this moment-

Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Turn your fragile lives into burning bows and arrows
Devote it! Dedicate it! Offer up your hearts!
Use your entire being to engrave an honorable trail

Opening Animation

On a stone ground, a statue of a saintly woman holding a child lays on its side. Surrounding the statue is a ruined city filled with ravenous Titans. A crowd of stationary people stand juxtaposed against a horde of advancing Titans.

In a brightly lit room, Eren equips himself with omni-directional mobility gear, placing his father's key within his shirt. Elsewhere outside, Titans by the dozens wander the wilderness. In a room similar to Eren's, Armin slips his foot into his military boot and Mikasa wraps her red scarf around her neck. In a ruined city up in flames, Titans wander. In the building where Eren and Mikasa are equipping themselves, Sasha helps Conny put on his ODM gear while Reiner beckons to Bertholdt. Levi dons his signature cravat and Hange equips her goggles as Commander Erwin stands outside in the uniform of the Scout Regiment.

Against a brick wall, Christa turns to face someone out of sight as memories of her with Ymir can be seen upon the wall. Ymir also stands against a wall, which shows a vision of a Titan eating a young boy. Outdoors, the Armored Titan marches forward, and Eren's Titan form collapses as it is swarmed by a group of smaller Titans. In Wall Sina, the Wall Titan peers through the ruined stone and a crowd of civilians watches the departure of the Scout Regiment, marching through a long line of illuminated stone columns. Titans consume innocents in the city as the soldiers prepare their ODM gear, standing atop the Wall proudly before drawing their blades and descending into the Titan horde.

Atop the Wall, many Scout Regiment flags fly in the breeze, and the remaining top ten graduates of the 104th Cadet Corps with Armin stand in salute with glowing hearts. Upon a bed, an elderly hand gently holds the hand of an infant, while elsewhere the Garrison fires upon a Titan at a defensive line.

In an open field, an explosive burst of energy shakes the land, destroying a nearby house. When the dust clears, the Colossal Titan stands beside a mountain, swinging its enormous arm to bring the mountaintop soaring in pieces to the ground below where the Scout Regiment charges forward on horseback. As Jean dodges a flying boulder, Mikasa soars forward on her ODM gear past Sasha to Eren, taking his arm and launching him forward towards the Armored Titan. Biting his hand, Eren transforms into his Titan and charges the Armored Titan, the two monsters raising their fists for battle with hearts aglow.

Across the world, the hearts of many living creatures both living and extinct, bacterial and animal, glow brightly while images of events to come flash by. On a field covered in humans with glowing hearts, the Beast Titan charges forward alongside monstrous animals and dinosaurs, all with hearts glowing brightly. As the humans are flattened in their advance, their hearts go dim.

The ruins of the city with the fallen statue stand empty of Titans. As Eren opens his eyes within his Titan, the fallen statue remains in its place weathered by time.
