Attack on Titan OADs (original disc animation) will be available on Blu-ray for the first time ever on April 27, 2022 and a special jacket illustration has been revealed. The illustration for the OAD Archive was drawn by Kyoji Asano and it depicts Mikasa, Eren, and Armin standing in an archive:
Kyoji Asano worked as a character designer and animation director on WIT Studio’s adaptation of Attack on Titan, during which all 8 OAD episodes were produced. He tweeted saying that he imagined this scene took place after the conversation between Armin, Eren, and Mikasa in episode 49. Armin makes the two promise that they will go and see the sea together because there has to be more to the outside world than titans.
The OAD episodes were bundled with the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 24th, 25th, and 26th limited-edition of the manga volumes. The OAD episodes recently aired on Japanese TV for the first time and are now also available to stream overseas with English subtitles.
