Kyoji Asano worked as character designer and animation director on WIT Studio’s adaptation of The attack of the Titans, during which all 8 OAD episodes were produced. He tweeted saying that he imagined this scene to take place after the conversation between Armin, Eren and Mikasa in episode 49. Armin makes the two promises that they will go see the sea together because there must 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 manga volumes. OAD episodes recently aired for the first time on Japanese TV and are now also available to stream overseas with English subtitles.
