Attack on Titan (Japanese: Hepburn: Shingeki no Kyojin, lit. ‘The Advancing Giants’) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama.
It is set in a world where humanity is forced to live in cities surrounded by three massive walls that protect them from gigantic man-eating humanoids known as Titans; the story follows Eren Yeager, who vows to exterminate the Titans after they destroy his hometown and kill his mother.
Attack on Titan was serialized in Kodansha’s monthly shonen manga magazine Bessatsu Shonen Magazine from September 2009 to April 2021, with chapters collected in 34 tank volumes.
The Identity of the Beast Titan
The identity of the man inside the Beast Titan is one of the many questions fans have for Attack on Titan Season 3.
In the manga, his true identity is revealed to be Zeke Yeager, who, as one might expect, is related to Eren (though the surname name is spelled Jaeger in the anime). Eren’s older half-brother is Zeke. Grisha, they share a father.
Remember the anime’s Season 2 finale, when the “Smiling Titan” devoured Eren’s mother and Eren used the coordinate to destroy it? That is, in fact, Dina Fritz, Grisha’s first wife, and Zeke’s mother.
She, and Zeke as well, are the only direct descendants of the original Ymir, who discovered the power of the Titans hundreds of years ago. Anime fans might remember when the newer Ymir was falsely worshiped in a flashback for having the “blood of Ymir.”
This is what they were referring to. The Fritz bloodline in Marley is also directly parallel to the Reiss line in Paradis, which also explains why Historia (formerly Christa) is so important.
Who is the Beast Titan on ‘attack on Titan’?
Attack on Titan is a hugely popular anime. It’s scheduled to end in the winter of 2021, and the manga just ended, but new fans seem to be appearing on a daily basis because Attack on Titan is so heavily recommended to those new to anime.
One of the series’ main plot points is figuring out who the Titans are. We learn early in the series that the protagonist, Eren Yeager, is an Attack Titan, but there are a few other types we learn about as the series progresses.
One of these is the Beast Titan, who appears to be far smarter than the other Titans who have attacked Eren’s homeland up to that point.
Over the course of the anime and manga, we learn that the Titans are far more complex and diverse than we previously imagined, while the Beast remains a mystery. But who is the Beast, and how does it fit into the overall plot?
