New Shakugan no Shana Anime in Development Revealed (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The July issue of ASCII MediaWorks' Dengeki Bunko Magazine will reveal on June 10 that the "Shana Project is restarting" with a "new anime in development" for Shakugan no Shana. The first Shakugan no Shana anime is based on Yashichiro Takahashi and Noizi Ito's fantasy light novels. The magazine will also reportedly announce that the second television anime season based on Yūsaku Igarashi's Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu otaku romance comedy light novel will premiere in October.
Geneon Entertainment (USA) released the first Shakugan no Shana anime series in North America, and Funimation agreed to reissue the entire series in a DVD box set last September. Viz Media will publish the fourth volume of Ayato Sasakura's manga version in July. Neither the movie version nor the second television season (Shakugan no Shana Second) has been released in North America. The first Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu anime also has not been released in North America.
Update: More background information added.
