Shana S OVA Gets TV Followup, New Darker than Black Lead

Shana to end, Darker than Black gets a new beginning?


 
 

Zepy's got a scan with more info on Shakugan no Shana: word is that after the recently-titled S OVA, there is a third season planned for TV. In fact, the OVA is being made specifically to tell some back stories that make the third TV series possible. The third TV season will also be the finale, closing down the popular story.

Meanwhile, on the Darker than Black side, a promo image with a new character has appeared! Not only that, but she appears to be a main character. She's 13 years old, half-Japanese, half-Russian, and her name reads Pavurichinko-- I wonder if she's named after Russian soccer player Roman Anatolevich Pavlyuchenko?

Actually, after spending some time on wikipedia, Pavlichenko-- as in Lyudmila Pavlichenko, a WWII Soviet sniper --seems more likely, or Dmitri Pavlichenko, an alleged assassin from the former Soviet nation Belarus.

So! Shana fans: are you excited or sad for the end of the series? And Darker than Black fans: what do you think about your new lead?

EDIT: And more, Lana brings up the possibility that the person at the top of the DtB image isn't actually Hei, whose eyes aren't red. Who do you think it could be?

Is that supposed to be Hei at the top? His eyes are black, not red. Except when he's using his powers, but then it's a red glow, not just red eyes.

So, if it's not Hei, who the fuck is that? And more importantly...can a Darker than Black series succeed without Hei, who is a fuckin' badass?

As a Darker than Black fan, my opinion: Oh yeah, just what anime needs: more teenage girls. Not sure if I liked the show as much as I liked Hei, himself.

@lanaswift: Nice catch!

I'm very happy to get the new Shana series and OVA and look forward to a good close to the story.
