Attack On Titan Ilse's Journal English Dub

On that day, the boy remembered with fear that he was subject to their dominance and recalled with shame that the walls around him were a cage…

Sounds interesting right? Of course it does! Then you see….

Ladies and Gentlemen, Attack on Titan, OVA 2!!!

  • Attack on Titan: Ilse's Journal Episode 3 RAW ONLY Action, Drama, Fantasy, Shounen, Super Power.
  • Basically, several hundred years ago humans were pushed nearly to extinction by a race of giants called the Titans. Not much is known about them at all. Humans built three massive walls to hold off the Titans and live safely. For a hundred years there has been peace. However, one day a colossal Titan appears and shatters the defense of the.

You know that when they change the opening, and instead of Jean doing a slow motion flip as he usually did, he seems to take front and center. I knew. I knew that Hajime Isayama’s favorite character was going to rock the core. I did not expect this to take place after his character development, and I sort of cringed. I never appreciated his past selfish ways, the one that talked big just to be noticed by Mikasa. But this OVA, hands down, has to be the funniest OVA I have ever seen. I mean, Jean’s babyish nature was perfect for this setting, as you can just sit and laugh at him all you want.
(Who let the horse into the editing room? Attack on Titan OP, Jean version.)

I remember ROFLing when I was listening to Armin’s intro, because it truly seems that he was subject to their dominance (his feelings for Mikasa. The loser was drawing her on his bed!!) and recalled with shame that the walls around him were a cage (his bedroom walls) and the cages are taken care of its superior owner (his mom). And such, Jean’s mom walks up the stairs in freaking slow motion, and I thought he’d be masturbating. He probably had been, and was mighty embarrassed that his mom had seen him such a compromising *cough cough: double entendre* situation. And oh man, I was so ready for this! I am going to highlight some of the main points of the show as a form of commentary.
  • Dot Pixis: So. The first scene featuring Dot Pixis… was interesting. I mean, I know that he is a heavy drinker and all, but to see him sleep, get woken up, and him asking for food was a new thing. I love Dot Pixis. This guy is a badass. One day, I will make my own top ten AOT characters and I don’t expect him to be very low. One lesson I learned: never take Pixis super seriously when he is drunk. Sh*t happens in the form of cooking competitions. One of my favorite pairing is the whole Sasha x Potato pairing. It is pretty infamous.
  • LOL, Eren could not even pick up ONE box. Mikasa comes in carrying THREE of them pretties. I laughed so hard, but stopped because poor Eren sounded a little flustered. I like Eren.
  • Jean-Boy. I kind of dislike the way they pronounce it : djan-bo.
  • Mikasa working out… Honestly, I wonder if this is Isayama’s style of fanservice. If it is, it is a huge turn-off. I am not sexist, but I believe I only mind seeing guys do such things. Girls going at it a little strange to me, but it explains how she was able to beat Eren in terms of strength. I still think it is fan disservice however. Enjoy this video of points 3 and 5!
  • Because of Jean/Connie/Sasha’s incessant arguing, Pixis decided that an epic cook-off would cool them down. This is a point to be debated however, as seen in the above video how heated it was in the kitchen. That scene has to be my favorite scene in the whole OVA where you can Jean and Sasha’s passion burning through. They are really doing this and going at it with all they’ve got.
  • One of the intermission pictures had Levi telling people the secret of cooking. The director must have gone into stupid titan mode for not including Levi. This setting was perfect for him!
  • Please enjoy Sasha’s ballistic screams in the kitchen in the above video. Truly lives up to her title as a hunter and a farm girl!
  • The “HUH?” Jean does before he he uses his ballistic cooking methods when his mother visited was so priceless and well-done, I “almost” cried for the poor kid. He sounded like that was the worst new he had ever heard. He looked horrified (a little) and the sound of upcoming tragedy slipping form his animated lips was imminent. What followed next was not so funny IMO.
  • So. One of the compilation of scenes that will follow next is the one in the forest. Jean was turning in circles, and even when he declares that “even though we’ve seen this tree before, we are not lost.” Oh, of course not Jean, of course not.
  • Both teams were looking for a sacred bull? I don’t remember what kind of animal it was, but the first thing they do (Sasha and Connie)… is poke at its feces. Damn. I expect no less from Potato Girl and Stupid Flash. Even Reiner’s face was like: What they hell did I get myself into? I’d ask the same thing too.
  • I don’t like Reiner. His reluctance was good for a reason.
  • Reiner gets smacked by Sasha, then elbowed, and then she says and I quote: “The World is connected you know?? What would you ancestors think?” HAHAHA, aw man. That made NO SENSE whatsoever. Why do you think she is acting this way you ask? Because Reiner did not want to help Capture the…boar! Right, it was a boar. Now I remember.
  • Because somehow, someone’s ancestors have something to do with the killing of animals for the pure enjoyment of humans’ self-indulgence. Whatever that speech was, it persuaded Reiner to stick. Probably, because he hadn’t understood either and did not want to get smacked anymore. I don’t blame him.
  • This next video is pure gold!
  • Armin is so weak he breaks his leg going up the stairs, then the other falling down…
  • I remember Armin baiting Sasha with potatoes to try to get her to forget the boar. OMG, for someone as smart as Armin, he should have known that that was NOT going to work! But it was still funny to watch none the less.
  • This girl’s determination is so big (Sasha’s) that when Armin was baiting her all she said was : Boar steaks, Boar sausages, smoked boiled and ROASTED!! So funny!

Jean’s treatment of his mom was definitely unacceptable. It was a little harsh and unsound, but like, you have got to understand him a little. She waltzes in there carrying her basket of fruits and starts talking about how everyone should be nice to him, how he is a problem child. It is truly embarrassing and I feel for this guy. But the mom should also know not to do that, but I guess she is a little simple-minded. His mom might have also been a little lonely and wanted to pay him a visit. He loves her after all. This is when the OVA started to get a more serious tone.
Jean reflected on his actions and deemed them too harsh. He remembers all the time that she had been kind to him, loving him, devoting her very minutes to him and taking care of all his needs. He remembers her saying that he was a kind kid when he took care of her when she was sick. You just get a sense of how much she cares for him and Jean uses her strength to help him go on and cook as he is alone. Those scenes were so powerful, it shows how much of a heart he possesses. He is a jerk with a heart of gold. He loves his mom, and he made a silent vow to her. It was beautiful, exhilarating.
Jean’s omelet looked seriously disgusting compared to Sasha’s delicious chicken. But Jean just HAD to win considering that it was his OVA. It was stupid because I thought that Sasha would win. I mean Pixis flew skyward, started slashing titans left and right at lightning speeds, did not forget his alcohol, transformed into a titan, and had the likes of JEAN, ARMIN, and MIKASA to transform into titans as well to “protect the city” from this rampaging monster by imitating Eren…. Seriously, this was the scene that got me rolling on the floor (or bed) trying so hard to contain my laughter, I cried. I have never seen anything so funny, especially these guys saying “Leave it up to us!” and transforming into the ugliest-ass titans I’ve ever seen!
This all came from Sasha’s boar whatever, and knowing how much I love meat, I can understand Pixis.
Then Jean handed that disgusting, barf-worthy thing. Pixis did NOTHING and he won. No big celebration. If I understood correctly, Jean won because 1, it was Pixis’ supper time, 2, because meat is meat, and 3, Sasha should have stuck to potatoes and carrots. Carrots?? Sasha’s tormented muttering made no sense. I have never seen her eat carrot before.

(Those poses at 0:43…..)

Final thoughts/Rating: Nonetheless, this OVA was incredibly funny, amazing and beautifully animated. You get introduced to familiar characters and you either love them more or hate them more. The scores will get you into the moment. You will fall over yourself laughing, I promise you. Remember, this is Attack on Titan, so this amount of humor is rare. It should be taken advantage of.
Overall, 9.8/10!

Currently the Attack on Titan anime series has released two Original Video Animations (OVA) that provide a side-story to the main plot of the anime series.

Ilse’s Notebook

Attack On Titan Season 1 Eng Dub

Ilse's Notebook: Notes from a Scout Regiment Member was the first OVA of the Attack on Titan anime series. It corresponds as Episode 3.5 of the Attack on Titan anime series and was produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G. Although it was originally scheduled to be released on August 9, 2012, bundled with the Volume 11 limited edition, it was postponed and was included with a limited edition of Volume 12 and released on December 9, 2013 instead.

Ilse’s Notebook was included in a subtitled DVD with the English limited edition release of the 17th manga Volume that was released on December 1, 2015. A second OVA titled “The Sudden Visitor: The Torturous Curse of Youth” was also published on April 9, 2014, which was bundled with the 13th Volume of the series. This second OVA focused mostly on the members of the 104th Training Corps.


In 850, the Survey Corps went on a mission. During this mission, Hange spots a Titan and decides to pursue him to capture it. When Hange was able to get the Titan’s attention, it suddenly retreats to the forest. Hange follows it where she finds it banging its head against a certain tree. The Titan becomes aggressive when Hange tries to get closer to it, but Levi and the others arrive on time to kill it. While investigating that place, they discover the decapitated body of Ilse Langnar, a soldier from the 34th Survey Corps division, inside the tree. Lying on the ground, they also find her notebook, which contains details of how she escaped on foot after her squad was killed. At some point, she was cornered by a Titan, but instead of killing her straight away, the Titan started to speak to her in human language, and it called her “Ymir”.

As she prepares to fight the Titan unarmed she continued to write words in her notebook so as to not to lose hope. In her notebook it states that after escaping from slaughter that her squad wasn’t able to she arrives in a clearing and her path unfortunately crosses that of the same Titan. A fight begins between her and the Titan, she quickly finds herself stuck, back to the tree with her notebook still in hand. Her tears flow but she still continues to write in her notebook. She describes her meeting with the Titan as well as all of her physical details and the fact that the Titan did not devour her right away. She also writes that when she believed her time had come. Filled with frustration, she wishes to see her parents before dying.

Although in the OVA this event is set in the year 850, according to the Attack on Titan Guidebook, these events are placed in the year 849.

The Sudden Visitor: The Torturous Curse of Youth

A Sudden Visitor: The Torturous Curse of Adolescence is the second OVA of the Attack on Titan anime series, which corresponds to episode 3.25 of the Attack on Titan anime. It was also produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G. This episode was released in Japan with the special edition of Volume 13 of the manga. After, an English version was published with the special edition of the English translation of Volume 20.


In 849, Jean Kirstein comes back home after two years of training. After an argument with Sasha Blouse during a training exercise, a drunk Commander Pyxis suggests they settle things in a cooking contest. During the preparation of this contest, an unexpected visitor arrives to meet Jean.

To everyone’s surprise Jean won, Sasha tells Dot Pixis that she cannot accept the result and asks for an explanation. Pyxis asks what meat is; Sasha only replies that meat is meat, and Pixis explains that meat cannot be anything more than that, and that is the reason why she lost. Sasha cries for her defeat, but Jean offers her a hand to stand up, running out of resentment. To conclude, Jean decides to go home the next day.

Unlike what is usual in Attack on Titan, in this OVA Jean is the main character, with actual main characters Eren Jaeger and Mikasa Ackermann are placed in a secondary role, and Armin Arlelt as a supporting character.

Also, in the scene where Mikasa turns to look at Eren, it is Jean who looks at Mikasa instead, which would be a reference of him having feelings towards Mikasa.

Bonus Information

In addition to the OVA itself, this OVA comes with five of the eight fake volume previews that manga creator Hajime Isayama has drawn. The first one corresponds to Volume 4, where Sasha is cooking. In Volume 7, Jean’s mother is entering his room without knocking. Later, in Volume 8, Armin is hurting his legs on the stairs. In Volume 9, Sasha is slapping and elbowing Reiner. And finally, in Volume 12, some fake Titan forms for Mikasa, Jean, Armin, Historia and Connie appear.

Other additional information that can be seen in this OVA includes Sasha stating that she doesn't like her popular nickname “Potato Girl”. Also, only Mikasa seems to regularly accompany Eren, while Armin seems to be more sociable and interact more with other characters, like Annie and Jean. In addition, another fact that can be observed in this OVA is that, unlike in regular Attack on Titan stories, no human or Titan is killed in this episode.
