I may be necroing but.... does someone know about the current condition of the Third Season of Shakugan no Shana? I mean... it's been YEARS since I waited for it... the 4th OVA is already done so... does that mean the third season is already in production?

If so, when is the expected release? D:

*Quite a noobish question haha, well, I'm really weak at scurrying for anime news. XD*


I think that the new about SnS s3 to air in fall is in the first page.

Or not but it's in the few first pages as it was announced not long ago.

According to this amazone link :
link

The 4th episode of shakugan no shana S wil be released 24-9-2010 so that means the sub will be released prolly early oktober which means the third season of shakugan no shana is gonna be delayed even more.

my guess is that the third season will air somewhere in january or maybe later.

if you're still looking for subs for the third oav:
eclipse
chihiro
God speed subs


I said like when the first ova was out that the third season wouldn't be before 2010 but nobody beleived me.

I can't believe I forgot about that, well I am sorry then. I should really think about what I say but my last post was when it was 1 in the morning for me. So yea I wasn't thinking straight so, this will suck we have to wait another month until episode 3 comes out. I think a 3 month spread for each OVA episode is good enough but they just had 2 make us wait 4 months for ep 3 >.>

What you say may be true but that release date is for the DVD and not the actual episode itself. Like most they will show the episode before they release the dvd. So the dvd will come out in June but the episode will be released at a shorter time. Which should still be in may a month before the dvd is released.


Like someone said before, this is an OVA series and OVAs do not air on TV as they get released straight to DVD/Blu-ray.

Hate to break bad news for those that were hoping episode 3 would be Zoetrope but the 3rd episode will be "Overture" and is being released on June 25th.

Amazon Japan has already listed both the Blu-ray & DVD releases on their website containing the plot synopsis. You can see for yourself at the link below.

This is an ova, it does not air on TV, it will get out when the DVD box will be on sale, not before.

any word on when the next ep will be released?


As Shanamelon 19 said,
ep 2 - February
ep 3 - May
ep 4 - August
To be exact,
ep 2 - February 26th, 2010
the other 2 are still uncertain but if it's true then
February (2), May (3) & August (4) then Shakugan no Shana Season 3 is being released on October 2010!

I can't exactly tell you the source but that information seems to be true since Shakugan no Shana S Episode 2 is really being released in February for sure and since this seems to be the kind of ova that takes months to release 1 episode so the info makes sense pretty much.

Yea, More Shana woot!

True, but isn't that why they haven't touched the series for over a year and a half since the second season ended?


Notice the gap between the first and second season, when you have something who sell well you won't sell it all at once, you'll sell one part, wait for people to talk about it to their friends, sell another part and have even more people talk about it and it goes on until they run out of materiel, it's only strategy marketing.

Problem is that some people want to see it as fast as possible, well while I do understand the feeling behind this I can say that it's not the best way for us and for the producer, making an anime takes time and i'm not only talking about the animation part, you have to make the script and to adapt the story from one support to another (which is not as simple as it sound), in some case you even have to wait for the novel/manga to end if you don't want to do an anime original. I won't even talk over the rest of the development which isn't over after these few step.

After that you have to raise funds (like makings OVA), take reservation for TV slot month beforehand (sometime even years, yes a TV slot on some anime TV chain is kinda wanted especially in the hours where people are the most on watching their TV).

A studio don't go ''Oh yeah that sound good let's animate this X thing'' or ''Well a show gave us ton of money, let's produce the rest right away'' Lot's of research are made, they take notice of some surveys as well and they even tough a series as been succesfull it don't mean that the sequel will, especially if they plan to invest more on this said serie because it was indeed sucessfull as a first season.

Anyway I just said some factor, it's far from being it all.
