Man, why isnt there an anime/manga series like this?
Don't get me wrong, Laura is the only girl worth anything from IS, but why the fuck isn't Taiga or Nagi or Aria in there or any other girls voiced by Rie instead?
This pic makes little sense, but I do want more series like Shana.
>I do want more series like Shana.
Shana deserves a reboot with 100+ episodes. More series like Shana just ends up giving us crappy battle harems with tsunderes who don't know shit about tsun or dere
Rakudai/Asterisk basically try to compress the good points of Shana. A MC who develops through the story in interesting ways becoming stronger over time through a fuckload of training and ends up becoming the villain due to circumstances? Well whatever, let's just make the MC the hair to the demon lord from episode 1, or make them the strongest with a small dumb twist.
Have a girl who has her reasons for being tsundere at first due to how she was brought up and MC being just an object to her [Torch] and developing their relationship as logically as animelogic possibly until it ends in a lover's spat fight where they reconcile and kiss? Nah let's just make MC peek at the tsundere princess while she's changing and just have her keep being tsun because fuck normal human behavior.
and why are battle harems these days getting so much fewer episdoes? you would think they would try to milk each series for as much as they could. Most end in 13 episodes or less.
Because the novels aren't as popular as Shana was back then so they get 12 eps now normally, plus you have to remember that all battle harem adaptations now are still trying to recreate what IS did.
The adaptations are basically just ads to see if the novel becomes a hit like IS.
Shana was only 26 episodes at first, but the series remained a hit so it got a second season and then much later a third season to end it.
Also, school-sanctioned battles. Fuck that to hell.
Yes, SnS was still a contemporary fantasy with a bunch of chuuni powers and fights but at least Bal Masque and the other villains still had their own agendas and goals to work toward. It's a personal peeve but I feel like having sanctioned fights is just a cop-out for more compelling conflicts to create that kind of setting for a fight.
Trust me, if I knew I would have long ago started writing light novels. We should be glad the author was a fucking retard and basically killed the series off.
No fucking around Harem basically. Establish from the fucking start it's a harem with 4-5 girls that pander to different tastes. Now give all of them different gimmicks in regards to how they treat the MC while also giving them a dash of tsun/yan and add some dere to finish it off. And of fucking course you need to have the MC be a special snowflake in the whole world who has a special power/is the only male who can use magic/mechs whatever. This works specially well with mechs since Japan loves their robots.
Now let's hope Bahamut this season becomes a fucking hit, because at least the main girls look good in this and Kasuga Ayumu deserves more recognition.
>skimpy skintight suit
>fighting against monsters
>getting almost raped by said monsters
I want to hear TsundeRie getting raped by villain Rie
The entire setting of the show is based on creating a harem, that's how far it goes
Honestly? I think it's the artist. There are hundreds of these generic pieces of shit, and really the art and character design would make them stand out from each other.

Well then Bahamut confirmed for the next IS in sales?
I want Rie to rape Rie as well
Maybe Ulith raping Louise
Twintails adaptation was really weak, except for the VAs
He masturbated what needed to be masturbated
>doesn't even try to masturbate
