whenever it does come out it's going to be great. And October is going to to (I believe) one of the greatest months this year for new series coming out.
My thoughts exactly. This fall season will be EPIC. I just found out that Genshiken 2 is coming out, and we still have Haruhi, Gundam, SnS and a handful of other very awaited-for series. Downside is that Lucky Star, Nanoha and other good shows will eventually end, but that's a reality we can't escape.

I just finished a run of Season I, and now I can't wait for Season II... It's is living up to the hype. Now I'm probably going to read the novels as well.

I've always thought the name Shana has a Western source, but I was pleasantly surprised that it came from the name of the main Buddha of Shingon Buddhism, Vairocana. Shana was named after the Primordial Buddha of the Glorious Sun. That's just super cool. Guess I should not be surprised to see Sanskrit used as the rune in those Jizaihou.
Welcome to the sensation

As far as her name goes, yeap, you're right on the spot. Unfortunately, though, in my language ( portuguese ) "Shana" has the same pronunciation as a pretty foul and nasty word - the reason why I'm probably not naming my dog that anytime soon( All my dogs have names that start with "S", and I wanted to keep this tradition ) - my mom and grandmother would probably snap if I said that out loud.

On a second note... Is anyone a bit bothered with the character design in that preview? I've probably brought this up before, but all we had at the time were scans, so having a set opinion would be difficult. All in all, I think the new lineart they chose is too "Laid-back" in my opinion. How I would define that, I don't know, it's just the feeling I get. However, I do feel like the first season's art was much more appealing.

[ You do need to realize that I have to complain about something when all I'm doing in life is wait for this series to come out, right? ]

That's because the anime wasn't close to being finished in the original series.

They'll probably appear again in the second series.

There's a pretty comprehensive list of fall anime here, along with the channels they air on and links to their websites:
http://www.andrewlb.com/fansub/pukiwiki.php?Fall%202007

No Haruhi this fall since Kyoani's going to be airing Clannad instead...still, overall I'm optimistic this fall is going to be really good. No air date for Shana II yet, but I'm hoping it'll be early in October rather than later in the month, just to minimize the wait

Yes. he deserved to be respected since he is one of the most experienced flame haze. But, I am a bit disappointed that in final few episode in the anime, when Shana, Wilhelmina and Marjorie were in the fight in Seirei-den, he sat out of the fight. We know he is a tuner, but can't at least he lend a helping hand?

Probably he could have. But he's got bad aim, so maybe it's just as well he didn't.

O.o;; I think I see Maple Story in it... Anyway, this fall is gonna be a good one, SnS 2 and Clannad (dunno if Clannad is good or not but it looks promising and I like both other Key's works)

Yoshida will be with Ike?

Of course, then I'd feel sorry for Hirai (the original one)...

We all know that Yuji is obligated to fight alongside with Shana because when they are together, they are much stronger up against the Tomogara. But to choose which girl that he loves most (Shana or Yoshida), that is a totally different thing. It is up to him to choose Shana or Yoshida, but most of us (including me!)here would like him to choose Shana instead.

When in the final episode in the anime, when Yuji offered to die with Shana when she performed Tenpa Jyousai, I think that at that point, Yuji loves Shana a bit more.

It is a pity that Ike does not know that the original Hirai Yukari likes him. What to do?

Yoshida will be with Ike? Let's see if Ike is brave enough to express his feeling to Yoshida first.

I hope she'll be with Ike so Yuji and Shana can be together. I'm not too fond of Yoshida. She annoys me to no end.

I hope to see more Wilhelmina de arimasu

More Shana...this is truly great.

Yoshida annoys me as well. As for Yuji and the little Flamehaze, I want to see a KISS this time.

Ah yes, a kiss would be wonderful.

I also think Yoshida is a bit annoying.
Oh and i hope the fights in SnS2 will be.. more exciting. Not just run-and-swing all the time.

yes a kiss is what we all deserve God I hope we get one. This is already one of the great series made that would put the icing on the cake.
