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'.
Frieda Reiss (フリーダ・レイス,Furīda Reisu?) was Rod Reiss' eldest daughter and Historia's half-sister. She is known to appear in Eren's and Historia's dreams.
She first appears in Eren's dream, with him seeing her from her own perspective, while she looks into a mirror. In Historia's dream however, she actually interacts with Frieda. She teaches Historia how to read and tells her to become a kind person. Frieda appears moved when Historia claims that she wants to be like her and then proceeds to manipulate Historia's memory, telling her to forget about her until they see each other again.

The battle for the Titan's power comes to a head below the Reiss family chapel as Kenny and the Anti-Human Suppression Squad face off against Levi and the Survey Corps. Rod explains how Frieda Reiss became a Titan, as well as revealing the mysterious Titan that built all three Walls a century ago. Hange becomes seriously injured after fighting one of Kenny's combatants. About to turn Historia into a Titan, Rod is confronted by Kenny, who reveals his original plan to turn into one himself.
On that day, humanity remembered the terror of being ruled by the Titans, and the humiliation of being kept in a cage. Eren has just transformed, charging at Annie in a rage, punching her into a building. The two face off in the Stohess District, wrecking the city and killing countless civilians, to the confusion of the Military Police. Upon interrogation by Nile Dok, Erwin reveals his role in the Stohess incident and believes it to be the only way for humanity to prevail. As Annie's motives are explored and Eren's Titan abilities drive him to an uncontrollable rage, the fight against the Female Titan concludes with the capture of Annie, but at great costs for everyone involved.
