Who would be Yuki? Kallen, in her Stadtfeld persona or Nina?

Milly-Haruhi's the only Haruhi analogue that's convincing for me though. Besides, neither Lucky Star nor Haruhi are really shoujo series.

I was thinking shoujo slice-of-life/school life too, and the atmosphere I was envisioning was basically one of those really innocent shoujo titles where the guy is one of those shiny/princely super-nice guys who is also completely oblivious to girls (in a romance sense). A male/highschool version of Yamamoto-sensei basically, if any of you are watching Hanamaru Kindergarten. Actually if I think about it, the atmosphere of Hanamaru Kindergarten would be pretty much perfect all around (though that's not really shoujo either). It's something that's completely lighthearted and heartwarmingly cute, just like the inexplicable essence of Shirley herself, away from the more tragic emotion and drama. Haruhi is a bit too shounen (I can sorta see the connection between Shirley=Mikuru, but could you really see Shirley as such a fanservicey character?), and Lucky Star a bit too otaku. If they did it right though, I think a Shirley manga could be quite a successful manga even, not just a quick and short series.

Ugh, yes, Kallen please. Anything, just don't bring ugly Nina into this XP

Anyway, well said as always Sol. I think a nice slice-of-life, down-to-earth, shojo-ish series would be great (as we've said numerous times already ) without it being too goofy. I really can't think of any shojo series to compare though, since...well, I really don't know that many shojos. I generally tend to stay within my own demographic

One series that comes to mind though is Clannad. I think it was a very good series and could be a great parallel for what a Shirley manga would be like (minus the tragedy, mind you).

Actually, the goofy of something like Haruhi would be a nice palate-cleanser for the Trauma Conga Line that was Code Geass, and would capitalize on the comedy potential of the characters.

True. I think it should implement some humor, just not be, you know, too goofball. Code Geass itself did have a fair amount of humor after all, most of it coming from the Ashford gang.

I'll second this!

Wrong series altogether. This isn't The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. This is the unfortunate murder of Shirley Fenette. Read afew pages back, there is undeniable truth to this.

X3 lol i'm half-serious, by the way. Also, I need confirm if my Shirley pics on the image thread show or not. Other then that....

I negative rep'ed Rolo for killing her. Yeah, Thats what I really think. xP

DUH. That's why we're talking about the possibilities of a much more light-hearted happier story, where Shirley doesn't die! Shirley needs to be at least one universe where Shirley lives happily (if there was ever a reason I wanted them to remake Code Geass, that would be it).

Yes. They do show up and they're spectacular!

Nobodyman9, your best hopes of that is three possibilities...

1. They redo the series up to that point, making Shirley simply injured or comatose instead of dead.
2. They let Shirley live, in exchange for her staying in the background.
3. Rai becomes canon and saves Shirley from death.

None of them look likely at this point. So sorry >:3 Looks like Shirley isn't living in an alternate universe afterall.. x(

Melancholy of Lelouch Lamperouge sounds more befitting, considering the character.... Then again, if it was 'The Mao-encholy of Shirley Fenette' that'd be canon.

Yes, I know. I suck x)

Hey, we can dream, can't we? It's about as likely as Shirley getting her own manga (sadly).

I was wondering...as far as Shirley look-alikes go, Orihime seems to be mentioned alot. But, who else looks like Shirley? It can be from anything. I know I've seen some others before, but I don't remember exactly who. Haha

Lydia from Earl and Fairy kinda looks like her although her hair is brown instead of orange I guess it would be ok if I post a reference pic....

Oh wow, she really does! Good find! I haven't watched that series yet, so I wasn't familiar with her.

Shirley is also apparently based off Anne from Anne of Green Gables.

They don't look exactly alike, but the color of their hair and eyes is the same or very similar. Anne's eyes look blue in this pic, but I've seen pics where they are green.

Ren Aoi

-facepalms- I always wanted to know the girls names. Turns out it's Ren Aoi.... I have to remember that.

???! NYEH? What is the Eruruu girl hiding her shirt? Could it be? Could it be...?!

An oil rig?! n_n!

It's strange how I despise Orihime, but I enjoy the overall purpose of Shirley (Riiiiight until the misogyny kicks in.)

People may not agree, but I think Shirley's smile is more kawai then her blush. It's innocent and shining, to say the least. Plus, when she smiles, Mao-encholy still fresh in mind, it makes you appreciate it.

I would've liked to see Jeremiah save her, though. Scare away Rolo with his awesome new katar and wave it around and be all "My cybernetics bring all the loyalists to the yard! Damn right!" X3

Wow. Good finds everyone. I guess there are quite a few Shirley look-alikes out there

Also, Asuna Kagurazaka looks a bit like her.

lol, if we're just going by character design, and we're gonna bring H-games into this, then let me mention Shinobu from the yuri manga/OVA Shoujo Sect (on this occasion, take the yuri label to mean that the series is pretty damn explicit).

Here's a pic I found from google:

Spoiler for pic:


Shinobu is a yuri-harem queen and the series is basically about her unrequited love for a girl she met as a kid (er, that's the other girl in the pic :P), which I actually found quite beautifully portrayed in the OVA, so I gotta admit I was quite excited to find such an awesome character who looked so much like Shirley. At the time it even seemed significant to me that Shinobu's name also starts with "Shi", though it's kinda embarassing to admit 'cause that's gotta be like one of the lamest reasons to get excited ever :P.
