Hmmm... I guess I see her tsundere qualities as coming from her life as a Flame Haze and just an extension of her role as a tough fighter girl. But yeah, I can see what you mean. Shana is a much more developed, multi-faceted character than someone like Mai. There's her Flame Haze side and then the angsty teenage girl struggling to sort her romantic feelings. Which, apart from the sword-girl role could be played out in any setting, but her Flame Haze position gives her a unique relationship with Yuuji.

Thinking on it further... it's her struggle with her feelings that made me care about her so much in the first place. I don't usually go for the tsundere type, but she completely won me over because of her naiveté about life in the human world and relationships and her difficulty in handling it. In my mind, she has a good reason for her tsun tsun behavior that goes beyond just a stuck up attitude.

Mai's theme music? Good question... I need to go back and listen for that. I've only wathced Kanon once and there's been a whole lot of other anime since then.

I have a link to the Kanon-AIR refeel album somewhere in here, some 300 pages ago or something.
I'll look for it.

Kanon's soundtrack is a bit overrated, IMO. Air definitely had the better musical direction and composing of Key-KyoAni. Its soundtrack still overshadows Clannad's, though.

Nagi is a parody character, and the show never takes itself seriously. Kind of hard to compare even though most people use the typical LOL KUGIMIYA IS ALL THE SAME argument.

Air's soundtrack surpassed Kanon and most other things the minute "Aozora" started playing. But in all seriousness, some of the music in Kanon was kind of awkward...

Hmm, I don't know.
Not enough real enthusiasm, though the love and blindness are there.
6/10 for now.

You need more trolling practise, apparently.

Why did you cast aside her image happily munching melon bread?

That's the first thing that comes up when I think of Shana.

Hm, I need your expert opinion guys. Of course the theme of Ruby will be fire, but...what else? I don't think a character on a firey background will suffice, but a burning forest would be inappropriate also. How could I be more creative with fire?

Kanon 2006 was too epic to listen to the OST.

Mai is pure win, flame haze aura like, blade babe ( someone said this in mIRC not me, but I forgot who exactly ? LazyCanuck ! ), pink bunny ears, snow bunnies, deep and mysterious personality. Heck its my avatar too...!

Everytime I think of Shana, melon buns comes in, which is still very moe, especially when she blushes. ( stating the obvious already said by others )

We're talking about the Ruby Necklace being controlled by its wielder, so if the poster looks like this:

Spoiler:


Then the fiery effects have to be reduced somehow.

The first thing that came into my mind was loads of candle flames or bonfires. However, it would be difficult to find an image of those where the candidate is proportionally scaled, so I don't know...

How about the corona of an eclipse, since it's an eclipse today in some parts of the world? That'll look nice and fiery with the center black area for filling in as you see fit

Yeah, that's what works for me too (plus that previous paragraph on your post). Ditto on the tsundere, but that's what makes the very few that "pass muster" really stand out to me.

Oh yeah, man, Mai's theme really stands out. It's that beautiful orchestrated piece with a sweet melody, totally unlike Mai's swordplay; when she makes her final swing jumping out the window and silouetted by the moon, it's an awesome effect.

Air OST > Kanon OST > Clannad OST but each one has highs and lows; Air's songs are generally better though fewer in number, Kanon's a greater number of standouts but more patchy, and Clannad's... um... well, had a great OP and ED I guess Seems I've forgotten most of it for now...

Anyway, votes:
