Viz Continues To Remain Tight-Lipped About Shana
I recently contacted Viz on behalf of my readers here who are fans of the light novel series “Shakugan no Shana”, asking if there was any kind of statement they could give, either vague or detailed regarding the status of the novels and their possible future.
As you might remember, Viz released the first two novels in the almost 20 book series from Japan a while back, and subsequently never published the third. The series has seemingly been put on an indeffinite hold. It’s not canceled apparently, but just not going anywhere as of yet.
After a short bit of time, I recieved a quick and prompt response from Viz, stating this…
There hasn’t been any announcement regarding this at this point…so theres no information we can give right now – sorry
However feel free to keep an eye out for upcoming news
While although not providing any answers specifically, it does at least tell us that Shakugan no Shana is most likely ‘still’ on hold.
The silence from the publisher has prompted fans to translate the rest of the Shana novels themselves. A fan translation of the light novel series began August 5, 2008, and since then Volume 3 has been completely finished, along with Volume 4 which is nearing completion.
Do you feel that Viz should release the rest of the novels? Leave your comments about all of this below.
