Ditto! I just came today to check and see if there is any new news.
I found a japanese amazon page with user reviews http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.jp%2Fdp%2FB001IAAPM4
But the Google Translated version is kind of hard to understand. The only comment I can fully grasp is this one,
"The 26th episode was a completely unrelated story."

Which is incredibly disappointing if true. I can't believe that Ouri & Makina didn't tell the other shikabane what happens after 108 kills.
Oh well, guess I'll save my money...

Bump bump bump....its been a few months and I'm still patiently waiting for any news on the last episode to surface. Anyone have any info?

I'm just curious still as to weather or not anyone has been able to find this episode yet. I've still had no luck.

Does anyone know if there is any official word on this? I can't find anything official saying there is going to be a movie anymore...

Its been over 5 months already..

I have almost forgotten about Shikabane Hime yet the final episode has only been released for a few days. I don't understand why people would make the final episode a few months after the end of the series ending as that many people would forget the story or that the hype of the series would die down..

Well... This is retarded. = _= I want it off my list, I hope its considered as a separate thing... not like what they did with Spice and Wolf which floated around my list for 6 months -.-

Man WTF, I mean this is a series I planned on buying anyways. But damn now I gotta wait for a conclusion. I know someone allready said this, but if I have to wait that long that ending better be nothing short of perfect!


It won't be. History shows it'll either be filler or underwhelming, but there's no way it will be "perfect".

Also, I'm not so sure that MAL will list it like that.

But we list Kashimashi like that, which is, as dtshyk mentioned, the similar case to this one, so yeah, unless we change the way we list Kashimashi, there is no reason to treat Shikabane differently.


You're exactly right. If it's not aired with the series, and only on the DVD, it is it's own seperate entry.

Other examples: Moon Phase, all three extra Baccano! episodes, Elfen Lied, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid, Manabi Straight, Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-, Honey and Clover, Otoboku, Wolf's Rain.

if they intend to make money, i would hope they stay away from stuff like this. eventually people will just get fed up with it...
