It’s more of a mix match of featured characters in this volume of the chimi (aka chibi) specials. Won’t take long for me to finish this entry however, as Jean’s only in one of the three sub-episodes, and that’s only a “technical” appearance. Won’t complain about that as his fans had already been treated to in the previous volume’s (v. 7) special.

Armin moved along with Eren - more reason for Jean's ep. 17 comment.

day 21
Mikasa wants alone time with Eren. Mina suggests a way to make that happen. Mikasa kinda messed up with the plan, or has she.

wonder what sort of "tradition" Mina's speaking of.

day 22
Report of a titan sighting reaches Hange. She rushes to the scene, with her assistant Moblit. Even with the high risks involved, they manage to stay out of the titan’s stomach until..

initially (without listening to the audio) I was wondering who is this guy, not Mike, and definitely not Erwin.

Who are left to appear? Levi and Erwin are all I could think of. They can each have their own sub-episode in next volume. We shall find out on that in a week or so.
EDIT: I think the real reason for the short length of this entry (as compared with vol. 7) is because, this episode really is shorter! vol 7 – 13min 47sec, vol 8 – 10min 11sec. That’s a whole 3min 30sec difference – and that’s almost the length of one sub-episode of these specials.

foreshadowing
Someone blogged about this toy on a while ago. One can change the hair and faces for each of the characters. Now when I look at this other Japanese article about the toy, it’s dated September of 2013 – months before chapter 53.

Another person on pixiv took a picture of this combination of faces/hair/body:
fakeerenhistoriaYep, it’s fake Eren and fake Historia. Such coincidence that Historia is amongst the characters available in that toy series.
I think someone can do a PS work of putting Levi’s hair onto Jean, since they have almost the same eyes..


* what’s with the name change? now that they have an official translation of the name (see this official blog or the picture below), and that’s the reason.
