Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titan. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind. Nominated for the 4th Manga Taisho Awards (2011) and won the Kodansha Manga Award shōnen category (2011). In English the series is roughly translated to 'Attack on Titan'.
Mikasa Ackerman (ミカサ・アッカーマン,Mikasa Akkāman?) is the female protagonist of the series and the adopted sister of Eren. After graduating as the top of her batch, she later joins Scouting Legion with Eren and Armin.
Mikasa is considerably more withdrawn after the murder of her parents; however, she still loves and cares deeply for her friends, especially Eren and Armin, seeing them as the last remnants of a family she cannot afford to lose. Her personality as an adult is very much influenced and molded by Eren when they killed robbers who killed Mikasa's family when they were children, with Eren telling her that the world is a cruel place and she has to fight to survive - words that stayed with her till this very day and became the very drive that drove her to train herself to be one of the best soldiers ever seen.
Mikasa has a strong sense of right and wrong, but she is also very protective of Eren and does all she can to advise him to follow what she deems to be the right track. Despite that, she knows well that she cannot always sway Eren in his decisions, as such she made it a point to follow Eren to almost everywhere he goes and stick by whatever final decisions he makes, just so that she can be around to help him out when he is in trouble.
The story opens with the Scouting Legion finding a dangerous target heading towards the city. Closing in, they break into five groups and start using their 3D Maneuver Gear. Just as they are about to attack, what appeared to be a dream sequence ends. As his eyes open, we are introduced to Eren Yeager, who is crying for an unknown reason, and Mikasa Ackerman, two of the central characters of the manga.
