<Insert comment of being Shana with guns here>
Really, that describes the heroines best. Same VA, same studio. Heck, the title follows same <blah> no <name> pattern. I think I still prefer Shana though – unless something happen in this series.
Well, what should I say? It is just episode one and everything seems to go according to the manga (or novel? I haven’t read it so I don’t know) word by word. The KugiRie sure added value in watching this. Animation is standard J. C. Staff – the battle is quite nicely animated (though being episode one this much should be expected).
We’ll see how far it goes. Especially whether it’ll follow Dream Eater Merry or Shana of the Burning Eyes (er, Shakugan no Shana) path.
