Shakugan no Shana S OVAs Announced, No 3rd Season?

Read on to know why I'm really pissed.

Remember my previous post about the confirmation of a 3rd season of Shana? Well…

New Shana Anime to Be Shakugan no Shana S OVA Series (Updated)

1st DVD/BD volume in October with “Shakugan no Shanatan” extra, Ito sleeve

The August issue of Kadokawa Shoten‘s Newtype magazine will confirm on Friday that the new Shana anime project which was revealed last month is the Shakugan no Shana S original video anime (OVA) series. Cast members Rie Kugimiya and Satoshi Hino will reprise their roles as Shana and Yuuji, respectively.

Like the previous Shakugan no Shana anime, the new series is based on Yashichiro Takahashi and Noizi Ito‘s fantasy light novels. The first volume will ship in Japan on October 23 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The video release will include a tentatively titled “Shakugan no Shanatan” video extra and an audio commentary track, and the first pressing will add a special sleeve illustrated by Ito.

Geneon Entertainment (USA) released the first Shakugan no Shana anime series in North America, and Funimation agreed to reissue the entire series in a DVD box set last September.Viz Media is publishing the fourth volume of Ayato Sasakura‘s manga version this month. Neither the movie version nor the second television season (Shakugan no Shana Second) has been released in North America.

After reading the whole article, I was all like… WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF-

But seriously, I had high hopes for a third season, well, with the chances for a useless remake for the 2nd season… A nice continuation from the second season, more evil doings from Bal Masque, and maybe some more Shana fanservice, top quality entertainment. Until to be crushed by a series of OVAs, which will only last for 4-5 episodes or so, be based off from the Shakugan no Shana S Spin Off light novels, and several months intervals for every flamin episode. Sheesh… But on the bright side is that there’ll be another Shana-tan short! That sort of cheers me up but still, looks I’ll have to bear with it like I am now with the crappy animation quality in the second season of Hayate…

Looks like another year to go before the 3rd season to be happening…

Update: No worries, the third season will coming shortly after the OVA run concludes. Which ends around Summer 2010. Worth the wait I suppose…
