Close, but not quite right. She is in both Sumerian and Babylonian mythology because the Babylonians copied most Sumerian mythos and added on to them.

In Sumerian mythology, Tiamat was the goddess of the Sea and the consort of Apsu, god of the water table. These two gods gave birth to all life together.

Then the Sumerians died out, but the Babylonians continued the story: They tell of how Apsu decided that he disliked his children and decided to kill them. After Apsu was killed by Ea, Tiamat few into a rage and filled with Berserk fury nearly destroyed all the world before she was stopped by Marduk. For saving the world, Marduk was made the king of the gods.

The Babylonians created this story because Marduk was the god of a city that became particularly powerful. As his followers conquered their neighbors, they naturally created the story of why all other gods bowed down to Marduk

He didn't sense Shana on the roof, it was the orgel he sensed.


EDIT: Whoops, wrong ep.

He did sense Shana on the roof in episode 03 or 04 or something like that. He said he felt something like a small fuuzetsu where she was.

On, I finally got my Torch t-shirt. : o

Hmmm, the illustration pics from novel volume 5 never gave us a good view, but that Chinese dress looks really good on Shana.

What about Kimonos?
Kimonos look great on Shana too.

Though I totally give my fullest support if Chigusa wants to wear them too. :x

Maybe right, maybe wrong, however, I guess that the change among opening/ending themes is going to take place after all the characters, showcased in the current opening, are introduced into the anime.
Spoiler:


The order in which the cast appears in the current opening follows:
- Alastor (the Cocytus), - Shana, - Yuuji, - Friagne, - Marjorie & Marcosias,
- brown/red tunic character whose name I don't know, - Hecate,
- Shuudonai, - Belpeor, - Aizen & Tiriel Sorath, - Wilhemina, - Ramie,
- From right to left: Ike, Keisaku, Eita, and Kazumi.

Gathered some news about the ending song.
"Aka no seijaku" by Yoko Ishida. One of my other idol singers of preference.

One last thing that has been eating at me, how can Shana bleed if she is already dead? When Shana sliced up Yuji in episode 1 there was no blood or anything, yet when Shana got injured by Blutsauger and the her own sword blood was drawn.
The same damn reason she needs to eat and why theres damn microwaves in heaven. It's anime.

Mwarr! This episode was good. I like flashback episodes! Didn't understand why that skeleton went bonkers because of the ketchup-trap but I suppose there will be some good explaination in the next episode.
Shana teaching Yuji how to eat melon-bread was really cute! Due to this anime I've been trying to find melon-bread in my local supermarket. I failed...
By the way, what does "de arimasu" mean?

The skeleton is most likely someone who have died before brought back for some reason. So being covered in ketchup and seeing it drip must've brought back a past memory/tramua when he/she/it was alive involving blood whether it was itself dying or whoever it was protecting/etc. It certainly didn't go berserk just because Shana hitted him with a stick like some people are suggesting.

I wonder what Carmel (the meido)'s real job is. What did she do before finding Shana? I doubt she donned the meido outfit back then. Did she just hunt Tomogaras? Was she a scout for Alastor to find a new Flame Haze? How long was Alastor without a Flame Haze since his last one? And it seems despite being stationary at Tendoukyuu, she gets some action whenever shes in city, or else her contractor (Tiamat) would be complaining.

Another interesting thing besides who was the previous Enpatsu Shakugan, since it seems the Nietono no Shana doesn't come with the whole package, there obviously has to be some other power that Alastor has that Shana haven't mastered/learned yet, as commented by Friagne. That seems to be the only way Shana will be the big bosses and my money says Yuji being in danger triggers them.

And lastly, since Shana never had a name until Yuji named her or a Flame Haze handle, what did Carmel and Alastor call her back then? Shana was fine with having no name and identity even before being the Enpatsu Shakugan?
