Kodansha revealed that the Attack on Titan: Lost Girls spin-off is getting an anime adaptation. Three OVAs will be produced and they will ship with limited editions of the manga on December 8th, April 9th, and August 9th.
Attack on Titan: Lost Girls is told from Mikasa Ackerman and Annie Leonhart’s perspectives. The spin-off is broken into three tales:
- Wall Sheena, Goodbye – Annie spends her day searching for a lost girl named Carly Stratmann in the Stohess District. During the search, she discovers a criminal scheme.
- Lost in the Cruel World – Mikasa imagines a world where the Titans never attacked and her parents weren’t murdered. This alternate Mikasa meets a young Eren and learns of his desire to explore beyond the walls.
- Lost Girls – Mikasa finds and returns Annie’s blade-ring. Upon returning the item, Mikasa asks Annie why she needs it and asks about her true motivation for joining the Training Corps.
Attack on Titan: Lost Girls was first created as a visual novel by Nitroplus in 2013. Wall Sheena, Goodbye and Lost in the Cruel World were part of the project. In 2014, anime scriptwriter Hiroshi Seko adapted the visual novels into prose and added Lost Girls into the saga. Ryosuke Fuji adapted the trio into a manga in 2016.
Will Attack on Titan: Lost Girls hold you over until season 3 debuts later in 2018?
