Many years before becoming the famed captain of the Survey Corps, a young Levi struggles to survive in the capital's garbage dump, the Underground. As the boss of his own criminal operation, Levi attempts to get by with meager earnings while aided by fellow criminals, Isabel Magnolia and Farlan Church. With little hope for the future, Levi accepts a deal from the anti-expedition faction leader Nicholas Lobov, who promises the trio citizenship aboveground if they are able to successfully assassinate Erwin Smith, a squad leader of the Survey Corps.

As Levi and Erwin cross paths, Erwin acknowledges Levi's agility and skill and gives him the option to either become part of the expedition team, or be turned over to the Military Police, to atone for his crimes. Now closer to the man they are tasked to kill, the group plans to complete their mission and save themselves from a grim demise in the dim recesses of their past home. However, they are about to learn that the surface world is not as liberating as they had thought and that sometimes, freedom can come at a heavy price.

Based on the popular spin-off manga of the same name, Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku illustrates the encounter between two of Shingeki no Kyojin's pivotal characters, as well as the events of the 23rd expedition beyond the walls.

Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku is based on the visual novel of the same name. The visual novel was bundled with the first press release of the 6th Blu-ray volume of the anime's 1st season and was supervised by Shingeki no Kyojin creator Hajime Isayama. It was later adapted into a 2-volume manga series which was serialized in shoujo magazine ARIA and illustrated by Hikaru Suruga.

The OVA was released for the Western audience when bundled with Kodansha Comics USA's Attack on Titan Special Edition manga. The first part of the OVA was included with the manga's 18th volume on April 5, 2016 while the second part was included with the 19th volume's release on August 2, 2016.

I’ve been waiting for it since I finished the manga and finally, it’s here. Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku is better than I’ve expected.

Story 8/10
The story focuses on Levi’s past, as the title tells us.
The first episode is about Levi, Isabel and Farlan living in the underground capital and “earning” money as thugs, in order to get the chance to live on the surface someday. Because of being captured by Erwin Smith, the three of them decide to join the Survey Corps. But unfortunately, it's not that easy. Councilman Lovof wants them to retrieve a secret document from Erwin.
Coming to the second episode, the focus ...

I have been looking forward to watching this OVA, as soon as i heard it was being made.

Story 7/10

This new installment of the Attack on Titan universe tells us a bit more about Levis' past and how he joined the survey corps. All the while being introduced to two new characters, Farlan and Isabel.

Characters 7/10

Farlan and Isabel are two new interesting characters.
Isabel seems to have a more childish attitude (A little like Zoë Hange), whilst Farlan is more responsible (taking care of his sick friend)

---The review contains spoilers---

So, a quick review after watching the 2nd OVA.
Having enjoyed the manga I thought of taking a quick look at this piece, which to be honest, wasn't dissapointing, but I expected a little bit more.

Story 8/10
Not bad, it made me feel nervous, sad, excited and stuff like a normal anime.
But, talking about the influence it has on Shingeki no Kyojin, it's really good. You get to see why Levi is how he is, and how the expeditions outside the walls have changed.
