The official YouTube channel of Kodansha‘s Weekly Sh?nen Magazine began streaming a trailer for the anime adaptation of Hiroshi Seko‘s Attack on Titan: Lost Girls spinoff novel on Thursday. The video previews “Wall Sina, Goodbye,” a story centered around Annie in the original novel.

The adaptation will have three episodes on DVD, and will have the same production staff as the Attack on Titan television anime. The 25-minute episodes will be bundled with upcoming volumes of the original Attack on Titan manga. “Annie Volume (first half)” will be bundled with the 24th volume on Friday. “Annie Volume (second half)” will be bundled with the 25th volume on April 9, 2018. “Mikasa Volume” will be bundled with the 26th volume on August 9, 2018.

The novel spinoff collects three short stories centered around Mikasa and Annie titled, “Lost in the cruel world,” “Wall Sina, Goodbye,” and “Lost Girls.” Kodansha published the novel in Japan in December 2014, and Vertical published the novel in English in June 2016.

Ry?suke Fuji drew a manga adaptation in Kodansha‘s Bessatsu Sh?nen Magazine from August 2015 to May 2016. Kodansha Comics published both volumes in English.

A two-episode original anime DVD (OAD) adaptation of the Attack on Titan: No Regrets spinoff manga was bundled with the limited edition 15th and 16th volumes of the original manga in 2014 and 2015. Kodansha Comics released the episodes with English subtitles, bundled with the manga’s English-lanuage 18th and 19th volumes.
