Attack on Titan OVA 2: Jean’s Story:

The episode is a back story on Jean Kirstein and the 104th trainees squad with some light comedy and laughs. A light comedy that do not lineup with Attack on Titan's original serious story, unlike "Ilse's Journal" the 1st OVA.

Levi and his squad are the supporting characters and it's nice to see them because i personally enjoy their characters and i wish they were around more in the anime.

The OVAs takes place around the time skip in the series near episodes 3 and 4 in the regular anime. Moving away from just the usual trio of protagonists and their training to become professional titan slayers, the story also focuses on Hanji, Levi and his squad, and several others. This OVA adds a little more background into some of the elder and younger characters of the story as well as some more mysteries to the strange titans. The first episode is the only one adapted from the manga while the other two episodes are original material.

Episode 1: Hanji has become determined to capture a read more
