New Releases: Shakugan no Shana Movie and S OVA

I keep forgetting to post about stuff that I’ve worked on that’s being released, so here’s some stuff that comes out next week (although you can probably get it early from some places I guess):

Shakugan no Shana – the Movie


If you’ve never seen or read Shakugan no Shana stuff before, this is a good introduction! It’s a retelling of the first story arc, but in theatrical form obviously. It’s hard to explain this series, it’s a combination of Japanese high school stuff (hardly surprising) but also monsters/beings that can devour people’s existences. If your existence gets eaten, the world changes as if you never existed at all.

If you’re not into anime, I’d at least recommend checking the Shana series out for its music – it’s done by Kow Otani, who gamers might know as the composer for Shadow of the Colossus. In fact, I didn’t realize it at first myself until I was like, “Man, this sure sounds like Shadow of the Colossus music.” And then bam, it suddenly made sense why!

You can get the DVD/Blu-ray on Amazon here. It’s got lots of extras too!

Shakugan no Shana S (OVA)


I’m not 100% sure, but I think this takes place during Season 2 (which was released last month) – it’s basically a bunch of side stories that are more lighthearted and less serious than the main series. I really enjoyed working on these because of that. This has lots of extras too! It’s on Amazon here.

And that’s all for now, but I know I’ve forgotten a few recent releases that I’ve worked on, so I’ll post about them another day!

    Now THAT sounds interesting. Unfortunately, i don’t have much money right now. Maybe if it pops up on netflix, i’ll check it out.

    I haven’y checked to see if you responded on my comment in the last Shana post you made about season 2, but I REALLY don’t feel like paying for a Blu-Ray when I don’t even have a Blu-Ray player. These DVD/Blu-Ray combo packs have both, right? I feel like getting just the DVDs would be cheaper…

    • Mato says:

      In general if they release a Blu-ray version of something they package the DVDs with it. I think combo packs have been the most successful for them, that’s why they do it that way. In terms of actual price, it’s honestly not that much different than had it been DVDs only. In fact, I think it’s probably the same price that they used to sell DVD-only sets just a few years ago.
