21 November 2008: Shikabane Hime will go on as long as it has to

Makina deplores your despicable taste in music.

So, there are reports Shikabane Hime: Aka will get a sequel, Shikabane Hime: Kuro, starting in January. I already knew Gainax wouldn't be handling the sequel, but I didn't know the second season would start in January. That means both seasons combined should add up to around 26 episodes. Or does it?

Makina's disguise is infallible.

Watching the first four episodes, I get shounen jive vibes that suggest a Shikabane Hime franchise could run on indefinitely like Bleach, long after my interest has waned. At least so far there hasn't been endless exposition by various characters discussing power levels, so that's good. Maybe I'll be able to make it to the end.

Makina does all right for a dead girl.

To tell you the truth, I'm not entirely sure why I look forward to each new episode of Shikabane Hime. I think it's mostly because of the angela OP and partly because it stars a purple-haired character without a squeaky voice. I'm a little put off by Makina's choice of spray-and-pray submachine guns as her preferred method of dispatching the undead. I would have preferred a shovel.

19:01:50< Evirus> I figured out how Shiki keeps her apartment so clean.
19:01:50< Nakar> She never puts anything in it?
19:01:50< Nakar> She doesn't even have anything but water in her fridge
19:01:52< Evirus> I can't tell you. I'm saving the answer for a blog post.
