Hajime Isayama's original manga depicts the battles between humans and the giants who now rule the world outside humans' walled enclaves. Isayama launched the manga in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009. The manga has become a sleeper hit, and Kodansha USA is publishing the manga for North America.

Director Tetsuro Araki (Death Note, Highschool of the Dead, Guilty Crown), head writer Yasuko Kobayashi (Shakugan no Shana, Claymore, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), character designer Kyoji Asano (Psycho-Pass, Tokyo Marble Chocolate), and Wit Studio (in cooperation with Production I.G) are working on Attack on Titan. Hiroyuki Sawano (Blue Exorcist, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Sengoku Basara - Samurai Kings) is composing the music. Sound Horizon is contributing the opening theme under the name "Linked Horizon," while Yōko Hikasa is contributing the ending theme.
