I wonder why I didn’t buy official English-translated Anime/Manga goods in the first place…?

Oh yeah, that’s why…

Shakugan no Shana S 02

Super stalking powers go!!

Wilhelmina is worried yet suspicious at Shana due to the reason of her being late home from school suddenly, and has the idea that Shana has been influenced too much by the real world to the extent that she’s becoming a kind of a delinquent, and even more that she intends to make Shana cease from attending school. After a talk with Yuuji’s mother for some advice, Wilhelmina forces Yuuji to team up with her and to stalk down Shana to see what she’e been up to.

Search Criterias of the Week – Shana Wins!

search-21-07-2009

I lol at what people are searching on my blog.

From unfinished search tags to some irrelevant furry findings when I have absolutely no furry material on my blog. (Excluding S&W that is…)

But above all it looks like Shana is the main search item for my blog, even though I can’t clearly remember what I posted, relating to Shana… But nevertheless, its still quiet a surprise for me…

That is all for now.

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…

Shakugan no Shana 3rd Season Officially Confirmed!

shana
After reading articles on the confirmation here, here, here and here, it is official that Shana will be returning either with a new season or a sudden remake of the second season this fall/autumn.

When I first read the headline for the ANN article when I opened my Google Reader account in the ANN folder, I was all FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUK YEAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! But for each of the articles I’ve read, each of them gave different outcomes, ANN reporting that it’ll be a remake of Season 2, and Sankaku believing it’ll be a continuation of the second season, thus, making it a third season. But Dengeki Bunko’s (the magazine with the original source) information on the confirmation is still pretty shallow at the moment, so the possibility of either being it a second season remake or an entirely new third season is anyone’s guess, or maybe JC Staff had taken the road for Kadokawa and decides to fool everyone by just re-airing the second season but cunningly adding in the new season in between half way? =0 We’ll just have to see…

Since Shana is my 4th favourite anime character (4th against Hina, Mio and Index) and the anime series my second favourite (2nd to Hayate -1st Season-) this is definitely my must watch for the year, and also Zan Zetsubou Sensei  Hetalia Season 2 and Seitokai no Ichizon for this coming Summer. I can’t wait.

Now if only Comic Alive would announce the 4th Season of Zero no Tsukaima…

Dengeki Gakuen RPG: Cross of Venus Out on 26th Feb 2009

Hey just reminding you guys that the new game Dengeki Gakuen RPG: Cross of Venus is coming out on the DS on 26th February (only in Japan)

Trailer

Dengeki Gakuen RPG is set primarily at Dengeki Academy, a Japanese private school that the main characters attend. The story revolves around an unnamed protagonist who one day hears a recent rumor that a ghost has been appearing during the night at school. While he does not have any real interest in the occult, he uses searching for the ghost as an excuse to sneak into the school campus one night. However, his childhood friend Kizuna Kasugai comes with him to search for the ghost, and the two decide to search around the bench in front of the campus store. In the silent darkness, the two gradually arrive to open the door of the store and before them they see a person’s shadow move in the room. By straining his eyes, the protagonist sees that the person casting the shadow is eating melon bread, and realizes that this must be the cause of the ghost rumor; the shadow is in fact cast by Shana from Shakugan no Shana. This is possible due to one day the reality-based world of Dengeki Academy and the worlds of the Dengeki Bunko light novels to suddenly become connected allowing people from both the real-world and the novel worlds to cross over.

By meeting Shana, the protagonist and Kizuna become entangled in a struggle by the members of the novel worlds to protect their worlds from the unidentified evil organization known as Zetsumu who have been changing story details from the novel worlds and creating disorder in them. Their goal is “to snatch away the smiles from every person”. In order to combat Zetsumu, the protagonists will help the fighters from the novel worlds by traveling between the real-world and novel worlds.
