they're not attacking on the moon of saturn, nor are they attacking "on" the titans

the titans are attacking the people, and the people are attacking the titans, but it's not called "attack of (the) titan(s)," nor "attack the titans," nor "titan attack," nor anything else that makes real sense

My guess would be that it's just them translating shingeki no kyojin incorrectly, yeah. I think that subtitle is something the Japanese side came up with after all.

If it's the English side that came up with that title, no idea.

It's like saying "war on terror."

This is not hard to comprehend.

it's not like that at all

it's more like saying "war on terrorist" because a titan is an individual entity and terror is a concept
