Watch This Cut of Reiner’s Attack on Titan Backstory to the Sounds of Harry Styles

The story of Reiner Braun is one of the many tragic tales of Attack on Titan and now it’s been cut to a Harry Styles hit.

The hit anime Attack on Titan is ultimately a tale of tragedy. In the classic Shakespearian sense, everyone in the show believes they’re doing what’s best for their people, even if the path to peace is one that’s still leaving footprints of blood behind them. Even amid these many sad tales, though, Reiner Braun’s backstory is particularly tragic.

Chosen as one of the Marley Warriors from a young age, Reiner constantly struggles to live up to his potential and secure a better life for his family. Living in the ghettos under a fascist regime, this tiny sliver of hope was the only chance at freedom that someone like Reiner could attempt to grasp. Still, the horrible treachery he committed on Paradis and the many lives that were lost in its wake haunts him to this day.

YouTuber LuizEdits has cut the sad story of Reiner Braun from Attack on Titan to the Harry Styles hit “Sign of the Times.” Immaculately edited and devastatingly sad with the song as its backing, the story of Reiner has never been more sorrowful. Exploring his childhood training in Marley, the infiltration of Paradis, his betrayal of his comrades, and the many lost friends along the way, the video dials into the self-hatred and shame that the character still lives with today.

Though the final arc of Season 4 of Attack on Titan has yet to arrive, the last episodes we saw showed Reiner on the path to redemption. While the character may not be forever damned for his sins, he still has a lot of terrible things to live with, and these burdens may yet lead to his fall.
