Attack on Titan: Signal to Strike Back, also translated simply Attack on Titan: Hangeki no Noroshi (進撃の巨人 ATTACK ON TITAN 反撃の狼煙,   Shingeki no Kyojin Atakku on Taitan Hangeki no Noroshi, lit. Advance of Giants ATTACK ON TITAN Signal to Strike Back) is a three-episode Japanese web miniseries produced by Toho and distributed through dTV. Based loosely on the manga Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama, it is set in the same universe as the 2015 live-action films Attack on Titan the Movie: Part 1 and Part 2. An English-subtitled version is only available in Australia, where Madman brought it to home video.

Plot

During the Great Titan War, a race of giants called Titans nearly wiped out humanity. The survivors built three concentric walls tall enough to keep the Titans out, but a century into that era of peace, the Colossal Titan suddenly appeared and kicked a hole through the Outer Wall, allowing other Titans to surge through. Forced to retreat behind the Middle Wall, humanity began planning its retaliation. Each episode of the show, set 10 months after the Colossal Titan attack, focuses on supporting characters from the live-action films: Hans in episode 1, Sasha in episode 2, and Fukushi and Lil in episode 3.
