The Attack On Titan Episode 26

‘Attack on Titan’ is a Japanese anime based on a manga series having the same title by Hajime Isayama. Attack on titan episode 26 is the first episode of the second season in the anime.


The plot revolves around humanity’s survival against a gigantic race of humanoids called the Titans – who consider people as nothing more than food. Due to this threat, almost all of humanity would have moved to massive cities protected by massive walls.

The story itself is about Eren Yeager and his childhood friends, Armin Arlert and Mikasa Ackerman. The three get enlisted in the military to defend humanity against the Titans after their hometown is attacked by the Titans and Eren’s mother gets eaten by one of the giants.

The plot slowly evolves to explain what exactly happened in the past which results in the truth about the Titans getting revealed. Also, the story will begin to show many other details such as the history and role that other characters have played in influencing the outcome of events.


Attack on Titan is spread across two separate seasons. The very first season aired on April 7th, 2013, while the second aired on April 1st, 2017. The first episode was spread over 25 episodes while the second one has aired 12 episodes as on 17th June, 2017.

Therefore, Attack on Titan episode 26 is actually, as already mentioned earlier, the very first episode of the second season.


The title of ‘Attack on Titan’ episode 26 is “Beast Titan”. As already explained in the introduction, the story revolves around humanity’s struggle for survival against a race of giants called the Titans. Humanity has employed the use of massive walls to protect themselves from being eaten by these giants. This is where the 26th episode as well as the second season begins.

For a very long time, humanity has been kept safe from the Titans with the help of Massive walls. This has lasted for such a long time that people have grown to become very disconnected with the reality that they are living in. Too many people have all but forgotten that they owe their very survival to the massive walls that surround the city. In very simple terms, people have become very indifferent to their existence almost everywhere.

This will however be very short-lived, for a wall called ‘Wall Maria’ gets breached by the Titans (particularly the Colossal and Armored Titans), who invade the Shiganshina District. It acts as a shocking reminder to the people that they are still in a struggle for survival against the giants. Just five years later, the humans discover a Titan threat well within the walls. It is discovered that the Titans are hiding within the general population as people. One such disguised Titan is discovered and captured by the humans in the Stohess District, whose name is Annie Leonhart.

While Annie is taken away by the humans into custody, Hange Zoe, the commander of the scout troop discover (with the help of her team), a Titan hidden in the wall. Upon hearing the news of this, Pastor Nick of the Wall Cult appears asking for the Titan’s crystal to be covered with sheets and hidden from sunlight. The Pastor doesn’t explain how the Titan’s crystal got into the walls, even under the threat of being killed. After this incident, Hange begins to have a suspicion that this is not an isolated incident; that there are likely many more Titans hidden within the massive walls.

On the other end of the city, Erwin gets the information that Wall Rose had been breached by the Titans who were roaming inside the city. About 12 hours earlier, the remaining 104th Trainees were stationed at an outpost where the giants were seen approaching from the south. Mike Zacharias issues orders to the soldiers to inform everyone about the giants so as to better prepare everyone against this incoming threat, while he himself remains behind in an effort to keep them at bay.

Meanwhile in Stonehess, Eren wakes up along with Mikasa at his bedside when Armin tells them that Wall Rose had been breached and that the Titans were roaming the city. During this time, Mike tries his best to ward off the giants and escape but fails; he ends up getting captured by a strange ape-like furry Titan. One of the things that surprise him is the ability of the Titan to speak, since this is not a normal trait for most Titans.

The giant asks Mike details about his equipment, for which he refuses to cooperate. Angered by this, the giant takes all of his equipment away and leaves him under the mercy of the other Titans that are eager to eat him.

The very first episode of the second season and the 26th episode of the series end at this point. The second episode of the second season and the 27th episode of the series titled, “I’m Home”, picked off from here, and were first aired on April 8th, 2017.
