Out of curiosity, which would be a more accurate plural form of Flame Haze, Flame Hazes or just Flame Haze?

I believe Flame Hazes is the more accurate pronunciation for it.

Even though it does not involve Shana and Yuji, I do not mind an additional Shana movie narrating Eternal Song. The more Shana anime, the better. I just could not believe that Season 3 will soon conclude. Sigh, all good things must come to an end.
No....I like Eternal Song.

But the final war against Bal Masque, IE everything from vol 16 onwards reigns supreme for me.

It's more like two different themes really.

The ending of the main story for all the delicious action scenes and blood rushing race to remake the world according to your own desires,

While Eternal Song for the melancholy and tragedy of a bygone age that still reverberates up to the present.

What I truly feel about Eternal Song cannot be described properly or done with justice, but I will try.

When I started following the Shana franchise in '07, I was very young then. Attracted by the surreal style of the anime, I brought my first Shana manga in HongKong, and it provided me with a lot of inspiration about a lot of stuff, in particular a doujin I was working on back then.

Interested in the Shanaverse, I delved deeper in '09 onwards. I started hunting light novels and familiarising myself with the references and other misc. information about anything I can lay my hands on (artbooks, guidebook for the light novel, forums online etc.) In a way, Shana was also the first true fandom in which I worked hard towards integrating into. (Touhou is my life now, but that is another story :/) It gave me a comforting sense of belonging, as though I was supposed to understand the deeper meanings the author wanted to convey.

Eternal Song is like a long forgotten memory refreshed in my mind. When it was announced, it felt like I had expected it for awhwile already (I had this same feeling when I read vol. 10 of the light novels). In a way, it completed the "past", or the historical aspect of the Shanaverse, the last missing gear in the works of Shana.

tl;dr Eternal Song completes the franchise, in a way I find hard to describe. It gives the final touch needed to truly bring the Shanaverse to life for me.

Thanks for reading ^^

A lot of people say that Shana was their first LN series they followed because the anime was the first light novel-based anime they watched. Shana was after all largely responsible for causing light novels adapted into anime becoming popular at the time.

I just randomly "hunted" for animes that didn't have too many annoying fillers and was focused on young love. LOL
And look what I stumbled upon.

Shana's anime has a lot of annoying fillers actually hehe

S3 so far has been pretty faithful to the LN though

Nah...that's Haruhi no? And maybe Hantsuki and Iriya no Sora if the latter two had more exposure....

Yeah, Shana and Haruhi together made light novel series adapted into anime starting to become popular when both anime first came out.

Haruhi was rather popular already as a LN itself when it first came out, so the anime only caused a further spike in its popularity.

What is the relationship between Sale and Chiara? Is it a mentor-student relationship, platonic, or is there some romantic attraction between them?

Partner. They are rather well known amongst the Denizens and Lords.

I'm once again confused about the last episode. What's up with Yuuji's Unrestricted Spell that was suddenly activated? Was that EVER mentioned before? What exactly is it?
And does the anime still follow the novel? I've only read the first part of the final novel, and thought episode 19 was well adapted, but episode 20 felt like they took some liberties, but I don't know since I didn't read the corresponding material.

I've read that those rings won't destroy the core, but what will it do? Anyone care to spoil some stuff?
