Chibi Theatre – Fly Cadets Fly! #9 (23-24-25) END

cc9-00001

As expected, it’s Erwin and Levi’s turn this time to enter that titan’s stomach. With this also comes the conclusion of the first series related media. April 9th? only a bit more than two weeks away. (fyi, that’s the 2nd OVD release date)
Oh someone please do a gif of all op shots from the nine volumes.

day 23
Erwin wants to close the generation gap between himself and the subordinates. His own plan doesn’t go as well. Levi suggests another idea.

Graduation time. Eren is the valedictorian and recalls the times during training. Keith is touched by the speech and then the usual ending.

And that’s all for now. Will they make a “chibi theatre – fly SL fly!” for future anime series? Many months to wait to find out on that!

new 4koma from vol. 9 booklet

See? I already said Eren and Connie have similar eyes (esp. in these 4koma). Here we see how the dress up would look like (in chimi style).
poor Connie. lol…

4komabd9x surprisingly, they let us through without problem.
shh..
I hope they don’t find out Jean’s being the substitute.
won’t be long before they realize that though.
For starter, him and me don’t even look alike..

It’s ok, both of you have face of thug.
Doesn’t Connie look more alike?
He’s got different height…besides he won’t understand the plan…
then (what about) heichou
Face looks different!!
If I stay still, I can really look like Eren.
I’ll come back, ok?

final discs volume (only for now hopefully)

the top 10 of 104th

the top 10 of 104th

This time last year, people were anticipating for an anime series to be premiered on April 6/7. Now volume 9 of the discs have been released. Waiting for some comparison pictures – maybe they’d fix that horseface scene of Jean coming down in FT in 24? (I think the chimi specials have been the things I look most forward to for each BD/DVD volume release.)
scaring the kids away

scaring the kids away

What we have in this volume’s chimi specials? the 104th are finally graduating. Erwin wants new recruits, and tries a change in image. Levi walks into a mouth (wth? ) .
More screencaps (of the included epsiodes and chibi specials) are available on that blog.
* will be doing a proper entry of the special later on, of course. weekend perhaps.


v13cvWhat’s with the tights
While applauding Isayama’s improved art on the volume 13 cover (of characters’ facial features? ). People on 2ch seem to have noticed some anatomy abnormalities – namely Armin and Jean’s legs – obvious when compared with Mikasa and Eren on the same cover. Maybe it’s the shading effect? not sure.
something's off..

can’t have it all
genga_4_jkIt would be perfect (in my opinion) if Jean gets this cover and they save Levi for the final volume cover instead. Oh well, this volume of the original artwork sketches covers episode 12 to 18 – pretty much most of the heavily-Jean-featured episodes (12,13,16,17,18); and that makes it a must buy for fans.

~very last scene in the chimi special~

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.

chimi-chara 4koma SK TG edition

A SnK trading card game has a collaboration with the chimi chara series artist and released some 4-koma. There will be seven of these in total, and so far five have been released. (fifth one features Jean)

siegkrone4koma5 yosh! gonna attack (with?) this card!
sh..
shit…what to do…!?
dammit…! I lost!
yes..! first time I win against someone other than Mikasa!
Jean…Eren only won that time coz Mikasa helped…
shut up!!

This continues the trend of Eren unintentionally “bullies” Jean. Poor guy. 😛

a little more from script of live reading event
Always find any conversation/interaction between Armin and Jean amusing, and this excerpt from the event proves so once again. Interesting to note how someone’s taken a protector/o-nii-san role for Armin it seems (am not complaining)…


Yo, Armin, whatcha doing here? Why’re you sitting here? Someone bullied you?
Nah…am gazing stars.
Star gazing while sitting by the river looking blanked out?
Just as always, you’re still on with such creepy thing..

Best friend of Jean’s added in this volume’s chimi special. Technically, he’s only featured in two of the three “days”. The specials this time has a length of 14 minutes! Is this the lengthiest specials episode yet? (though to be fair, the stories themselves are more detailed than some of the previous ones)
This entry is gonna be really long, because this episode of chimi specials is…

day 17
The day where the 104th class gets their first hands on the 3dmg. Eren fails to get a balance. This time however in this alternative-universe he never succeeded, and he, Mikasa, and Armin all went to being cultivators. This AU is Eren’s dream, and thus Kaji Yuuki does every character’s voices.

Jean is a smart guy in his own way. This time in a training session, he’s too smart for his own good and got lost in the forest. Of note is that this sub-episode contains lots of parodies of the actual story.

Weekend is just too short! I have seen volume 8’s specials also. Will probably do an entry for that next week, because, chapter 55 is coming out during this week, and I do have a busy life, and I do want to space out the entries, and not cramp them all together within couple of days.

(I think this will be the last time we’ll hear of Jean in the chimi specials for the near future)

Hange and the deceased

v8chimi1v8chimi2Chimi-chara specials of volume 8…focused on? not one character, but four (at least? ). We have Hannah and Franz in the first part, Mina in the second, and Hange in the third.
Is there Jean? From the initial look of the available screencaps, I say no; though maybe he’s in the background of some scene somewhere.

With even minor characters getting a voice appearance, maybe the former Levi squad will be in the next volume’s special? (kind of wishful thinking. 😛 ) More probable will be Levi and Erwin. (poor Thomas Wagner gets forgotten )

Screencaps courtesy of that blog. (additional screencaps can be viewed there)

The Hange addition seems kind of forced in this shot. lol

7th volume BD/DVD here it comes + v.8 cover

chimi7pvAhaha…that face of Jean, chimi style. Marco’s CV makes his debut this time in the chimi specials. That means Jean’s CV also makes a return. From the look of the initial screencaps, looks like one or two of those chimi episodes will have heavier focus on those two.
(also a reminder vol. 7 contains episodes 17, 18, and 19 of the anime – all great episodes especially for fans of certain character(s))
With all of the top 10 plus Armin and Ymir made their appearances in the chimi specials, it’s now a wild guess as to who will be featured in vol. 8 and 9’s specials.

Hop over to that blog for more screencaps from the episodes, the chimi specials, and pictures of the included bonus item.

bddvd8covEDIT: and Levi it is! (vol. 8 disc cover jacket). Fangirls squeal, fanboys..I.. don’t know. Notice the scene behind that wall – it’s now showing trees.
My guesses for vol. 9 cover: the main trio, Eren titan, or everyone.

You know it’s already the 6th volume of the disc sets, so it means there are three more left – with the 9th one to be released in March 2014. Thankfully, we will get another OVA comes April; but after that, it will be a long wait..well I hope it will not be.

01312051112SKBD6s0242Spoke too soon. Connie’s CV is added this time (in the chimi specials; in this picture, Connie is to the left of Jean). Now there’s no way to guess who’ll be on vol.7 cover; but it will probably be revealed in the next few days. (I am also counter-jinxing by saying, “Marco won’t be voiced in the next chimi special” )

And..yes, quick preview of screencaps (from the volume 6 discs set) can be found on that wonderful blog page.

v7cvjEDIT: and here it is. volume 7 cover Erwin and Hange, and Hange gets the inside cover. Jean made it onto the included calendar as well (for some reason) – Jean, Armin, Mikasa, Eren, Levi and Erwin, in that order from left to right.

Oh…getting crowded in there. The EMA trio is slowly being blocked by the newly added members. Looks like Jean’s spot is the perfect one (aside from where Keith’s sitting).

Since I am just watching the raw, a lot of what’s below are half guesses; but, they are educated guesses.
