Ilse’s Notebook is the first OVA episode of the Attack on Titan anime.
Its the year 850, and the Survey Corps are heading out for the 49th time. Hange wants to capture a Titan for research. She runs into a Titan that appears to be abnormal. Hange fails to capture this Titan and Oluo is almost killed. Levi, however rescues him by cutting off the Titan’s arm and then killing it. Petra discovers the corpse of a soldier, decapitated within a tree.They also find the soldier’s notebook detailing her travels. Hange learns that “Ilse Langnar” is the soldier’s name and that the Titan spoke to her.
The Titan said “Ymir-sama, welcome back“, but after questioning it Ilse loses her composer after it fails to answer. The Titan then begins to tear its own skin off it’s face. Unsurprisingly, Ilse is disturbed and begins to flee. The Titan catches her and before she can finish writing bites off her head. Hange uses the Notebook as proof for her request to capture and study Titans. Hange gets the approval she wanted from Erwin. It’s would be a understatement to suggest that this is a game changer, talking Titans.
