Kodansha to Release OAD "Ilse's Notebook" with Manga vol. 17
Well I'm VERY excited about this and never thought it it would happen since these episodes were bundled with the manga in Japan. Actually that might be an understatement for how happy I am right now. I'll be pre-ordering each one they release (hope they do them all). It's sub-only from what I'm reading in the article though. I wonder how these will be priced, in Japan they're $30.
Seriously, even if you don't collect the manga, or dislike that it's sub-only DVD, at least get the Ilse one and the No Regrets ones if you're a fan of the series since they do add to the story. The Training Corps days one (the 3rd I think?) is also good, but there is one episode that is mainly a comedy/parody episode and is easily skippable.
Guess I started importing these for nothing… Ah well, at least I only got No Regrets 2 so far. The article also mentions the playing cards that come with volume 16. I have that pre-ordered, so hopefully they're good quality!
UPDATE: Kodansha is releasing the No Regrets OVAs bundled with volumes 18 and 19 in the US. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-01-15/kodansha-usa-to-release-attack-on-titan-no-regrets-anime-dvd-with-manga/.97613
Seems like they might be skipping the other two OVAs, which is kind of a bummer, but one was just a series of gags. It's more unfortunate that they might be skipping the one from the 104th's training days.
