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 Titans. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a Titan 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'.
Anka Rheinberger (アンカ・ラインベルガー,Anka Rainberuga?) is a member of Garrison and one of the Dot Pixis's escorts, the other being Gustav.
Not much is known about her personality, however, as a soldier, Anka is shown to express little to no emotion, except for the moment when she learns of the gate breach in Trost District, which leaves her surprised. She seemingly follows orders without any objections, not questioning Pixis for going with such an uncertain plan as plugging the gate, however, she also understands the feelings of other soldiers, stating that there is a limit to how much one can be motivated by fear.

A few days have passed since the new Squad Levi formed, and the Survey Corps is planning their next moves. However, they receive the news from Hange that Pastor Nick has died. She and Moblit had hid him in the barracks of Trost District, and once they are notified of his decease, they decide to investigate. The two are stopped by Military Police members from the interior. Djel Sanes tells them that a robber had entered to Nick's place and killed him, but Hange notices signs of torture on the Minister's body, so she decides to interrogate the Military guards. Having concluded that they were the ones who tortured Nick, she and Moblit leave the scene. After hearing this story, Levi agrees that they not only have enemies outside the Walls, but inside too. They discuss what their next moves to take are, and concur that they would take the route that Erwin himself would: advance with the plan to retake Wall Maria, and take down whoever wants to stab their backs.
Some hours later, as Connie and Eren discuss their current situation, Eren remembers when Historia tells them about her upbringing.
Being a lonely child, she worked in the farm she was born in. Her mother wouldn't talk to her and her grandparents only would when they taught her chores. Since other kids would throw rocks at her, she knew that she would never leave the farm. After learning how to read, she knew how mothers took care of their children, and she, wanting to know how her mother would react if she hugged her, tried to do it. But this caused her mother to insult her and leave the farm.
After a couple years, she met her father, Lod Reiss, who was the owner of the land she lived in. He wanted Historia and her mother to live with him, but as soon as they went for the carriage, they are surrounded by a horde of men demanding to know if Lod Reiss had any relationship to them. He denied it, and this caused one of them to slit Historia's mother's throat. As he was about to kill Historia, Lord Reiss told her that she should change her name to Krista Lenz and live in hiding.
In year 850, the Survey Corps soldiers head outside the Walls for the 49th time. Hange, however, isn't satisfied with their plans this time and argues with Erwin about how important it is to capture a Titan for research purposes. In spite of Erwin's orders, she eventually heads into a forest to follow a Titan that exhibited strange behavior. The capture attempt, however, fails and the Titan is killed by Levi.
Near the same location, they soon find a corpse of a soldier, along with the soldier's notebook. After reading it, Hange learns that the soldier, Ilse Langnar, encountered a Titan who spoke to her. However, after an enraged Ilse continues questioning the Titan, it kills her, but surprisingly, doesn't eat her body. Later, Hange writes a document of proposal to Erwin for the resuming of the Titan capturing operations. Eventually, Hange gets an approval, much to her joy.
