Here’s a list of some of the things I might get for my birthday (which is tommorrow). I get free-use of $100 (maybe more…), so I’ll be able to get most of these… ^^;; Of course, there isn’t much anime stuff… more manga/light novels and video games than anything else. ^^;;
OVA: Shakugan no Shanatan
Series: Shakugan no Shana
Uruchai uruchai uruchai!
The best DVD extra I have ever seen.
Okay, I’m playing the Shana DS game right now and I’m obviously stuck if the title didn’t already give it away. When I started the game it seemed to take on the effect of a visual novel. I have very limited Japanese skills so I don’t know what the heck is going on and what to do on that little spinning thing.
… Aside from that pain, the biggest pain is listening to the screechy BGM due to it being too sexy for my youknowwhatonthecomputer… (you know what I’m talking about). Actually, it’s the first RO… youknowwhat I ever got to play and work on it. Oh joy? *clap* I think I shouldn’t even bother anymore… I’d be absolutely thankful if someone were to make a fansub of the game like the mass amount of untranslated visual novels since the game doesn’t seem to be coming to the US anytime soon. That’d be dandy. ^^; … But I guess webservers can’t take it due to the supposed battle system in the game. ): Come to the US soon please! Or at least give me some light on what to do on that spinny thing. >_>;
Um, if someone were kind enough and actually played the game (or not), could someone tell me what’s it about and if it’s based on the light novels or has a story of its own? Because that was certainly never made clear to me!
I managed to take a few sexy screenshots though…
Seems to be such a nice game if only I understood most of it!
Edit: Nevermind. Found out that the game doesn’t follow the light novel’s story.
While messing with the html on the blog, I decided to put in a random banner hack.
Refresh the page / press F5 to get a different dose of (mostly) Shana. :3 Actually, I only have three currently… and they’re all Shana.
Ever since it was announced that Shakugan no Shana would have a second series, I have been having some… foretelling dreams, such as a barrage of giant melonpan pouring down on me and the big king squishing me, being stabbed fifty times over with a dozen of flaming katana, and a scary Kazumi trying to eat me. ANYWAY~
<:3 Waiting is no fun. So I’m going make the time go by with a countdown of Shana-foyboyism, every month until Fall.
Hitotsu~ First of the 6 things I love about Shana.
~FABULOUSLY hawt English.
So the light novel was still readable, the translation was hopefully and surely solid, and it was highly enjoyable to read the source material bound between real covers without looking in the dictionary every five minutes. The only problems are…
the annoyingly large text don’t really care and the unneeded cropping of two of the illustrations.
Thanks to Darrenm and GyroidFanatic from AnimeOnDVD.com forums for the pics.
Fawk, I say. FAWK. I honestly see nothing to censor. Are Shana’s panties really that detailed and err… “arousing” for it to be kept in for a teenaged audience? I don’t even think that’s bad for little kids… Or is it that Yuji is sleeping in bed with her? Either way, he’s still sleeping in bed with her. (:
I remember the days where Viz would keep in Goku’s wee-wee for all to see in their early editions of the Dragon Ball manga… they really went censorship crazy since then.
This is the only bull I care about. Aside from this and the large text, it’s all fine.
So, at the beginning of April, I heard that there was going to be a second series of Shakugan no Shana coming out somewhere in fall. At first I thought it was an April Fools trick (it being the beginning of April and all), but I’m certain that this is real news. Check the official site if you don’t believe me.
In my opinion, the ending of the anime begged for a second series, despite how awesome it was. But THAT’S JUST ME. This is completely awesome, another ’07 anime to look forward to. 🙂
Speaking of Shana, just a heads-up: Viz is translating the Light Novels and manga now, and Vol. 1 for both will be up for grabs on April 17. About only $10 for each, so buy when you can.
