In addition to the action of ''Attack on Titan''[[note]]進撃の巨人, ''Shingeki no Kyojin'', lit. "Advancing Giants"[[/note]], 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 a lot less angst (plus a protagonist who's the exact opposite of a ShrinkingViolet).

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.
