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

Before sitting down to watch the episodes in this OVA, I thought to myself even if they're all terrible it wouldn't even matter because c'mon man, IT'S MORE ATTACK ON TITAN! But as i expected, for the most part it reached my expectations (mostly due to Ilse's Notebook). What I did not expected is how vastly different each episode would be from one another.

Episode 1. Ilse's Notebook: Without a doubt, this is what made this entire OVA worth watching. It did its job brilliantly adding to the mystery of the titans behaviors and building even more suspense for the next season to come. Plus who read more
