Repeated nightmare

The World is out of gear after 11/9 Attacks.

In the American superhero film “Batman” directed by Tim Burton in 1989, a jovial hero appeared.
But in “Batman Begins” in 2005, Christopher Nolan reboots the original to show us more serious and down to earth aspects.
In a monumental work “James Bond 007 series”, a superhero of enduring dandy was turned into a wounded hero like a familiar man in “Casino Royale” in 2006.

Anyway, human always fight.

How will “Attack on Titan” end? Will human exterminate titans — like “Independence Day” in 1996? Or can they build amicable relations with them?

Many readers may agree neither of them.
This manga created after 11/9 Attacks asks us what human should be.

Notable works:
  Attack on Titan (2009-)
