Don't confuse ''Attack on Titan'' with ''Series/GiantKilling'' or ''ComicBook/IKillGiants''. Fans frequently shorten the Japanese title (''Shingeki no Kyojin'') to SNK, [[NamesTheSame though the series has nothing to do with]] ''that'' Creator/{{SNK}}. Speaking of confusing acronyms, don't confuse this AOT with ''VideoGame/AgeOfTime''.

From its relatively modest beginning, the manga managed to become the 11th-highest seller of all time in 2011. After the premiere of the anime adaptation (which became exceptionally popular in its own right), sales of the manga boosted exponentially, which has made ''Titan'' the most popular new anime/manga and surpassing many established franchises. The manga consistently sold in the top two every month and new volumes are being surpassed only by a certain [[OnePiece best selling manga of all time]] and still growing. The success of both anime and manga launched a franchise ranging from video games to light novels to fragrances and coffee mugs.

Plans arose for a live-action film adaptation planned for a 2014 or later release, and after a bout of CreativeDifferences [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-12-13/director-nakashima-leaves-live-action-attack-on-titan between the director and the screenwriter]] (amongst other issues), the film had a 2015 release in two parts. ''Manga/BloodyMonday'' star Haruma Miura plays the lead role of Eren, while model-turned-actress Kiko Mizuhara (Mikasa), Kanata Hongo (Armin), Satomi Ishihara (Hanji), Nanami Sakuraba (Sasha), and Takahiro Miura (Jean) round out the main cast.

Despite the action-y sounding premise of '''''Attack on Titan'''''[[note]]進撃の巨人, '''''Shingeki no Kyojin''''', lit. "Advancing Giants"[[/note]] (and it does contain a great deal of action), author Hajime Isayama also weaves a tight story around its [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters large cast of characters]] and the strange, apocalyptic world in which they live. ''Titan'' also revolves around the concept of failure: the human forces repeatedly struggle to accomplish anything, sacrifice numerous lives, and make major mistakes [[ShaggyDogStory to have it all come to naught in the end]]. But every so often, humanity's persistence, wits, and luck manages to pay off--and through their victories, a complex portrait of the world begins to form, one that reveals [[OntologicalMystery something more sinister to the weirder aspects of their world]]. ''Titan'' primarily explores the ways in which people deal with trauma, survival, loss, and death...as they fight man-eating giants. One can describe it as ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' without giant robots and with alot less angst (plus a protagonist who's the exact opposite of a ShrinkingViolet).

For more than a hundred years, the last remnants of humanity have lived inside a fortified city designed to protect them from a powerful race of man-eating giants known as Titans. The two races have locked one another into a stalemate: the Titans cannot breach the walls of the city, and humanity cannot make war with the Titans without risking extinction.

Those facts held true until the day a colossal Titan smashed a hole in the perimeter wall of the village of Zhiganshina, which allowed its smaller kin to wander inside and wreak havoc. Three children escaped from the ensuing massacre: Eren Yeager, an aggressive adolescent boy; Mikasa Ackerman, his quiet adoptive sister; and Armin Arlert, Eren's bookish best friend. Years later, the trio decide to join the Survey Corps, a military branch dedicated to making excursions into the outside world to fight the Titans and research ways to defeat them once and for all -- and Eren, with vengeful and murderous intent in his heart, vows to kill every last Titan on Earth.
