Background

The first Shingeki no Kyojin OVA, Ilse no Techou, is adapted from a side-story in the 5th volume of the Shingeki no Kyojin manga. The second, Totsuzen no Raihousha, is an original story that utilizes the comedic previews found at the end of the manga's volumes. The third is an anime-original story.

Ilse no Techou was scheduled to be bundled with the 11th limited-edition manga volume on August 9, but the disc was delayed 4 months. The 11th special-edition manga volume bundled a sticker and 3D card instead of the OVA.

In a land ravaged by Titans - monstrosity that have desolated humanity and left them on the brink of constant fear at every day, every hour, every minute exists warriors that fights for what they believe in. It is freedom and to liberate themselves from fear and destruction of this apocalyptic land at the dawn of the hour, these warriors have vowed to bring the war against Titans. But just exactly who are these mysterious Titans that suddenly popped out of from the earth? Why do they eat humans when they suffer no hunger themselves? Exactly what is a ‘Titan’?

I don't have knowledge about Shingeki no Kyojin manga but I've completed the TV series. This OVA occurred during the time when Eren and his batch (104th trainees squad was still in training). Also keep in mind that currently only 1 of the 2 episodes is out and that is the sole information I could review as of now.

It's better to think of this as another anime episode rather than some highly anticipating OVA. It's because there's not much action in here. Nevertheless, I still scored it 10. Why? It's because I strongly believe this is an important fragment in the entire story of Shingeki read more

Well, there is not much to say. Everyone who enjoyed the anime should watch this OVA.

The plot is very interesting. It shows us that there is something more in the titans. What the heck happened? After watching this I got a feeling that the titans actually don't wanna eat humans but they are somehow forced into it. Heh such an interesting topic. "The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak." Mark 14:38

Anyway, basically you return some time before the ending of the first anime season and watch some well-known characters (Levi and his squad, Hanji, Ervin..) discovering another fact about the titans. read more
