Hello. Finally, the final season.
Light novel origin with an independent ending, because the anime serves as an alternative ending from the LN since the LN is still not finished. 12eps.
Storyline moved on from where S3 left off. Flaws are still there, seriously. 6-7 years already and also the final season and they didn’t even TRY to improve. But thinking about it, J.C.Staff was doing Shana’s final season SIDE-BY-SIDE again, so the effort were pretty much given to Shana. More new characters, means harem expands again. As a final arc, it doesn’t really feel like one. The level of excitement were pretty much the same as the older seasons, which is not the way. Pacing is slightly faster this time round. Ending was extremely rushed, lacking in depth and just inconclusive. The ending was only like 5mins long to wrap up the 4 season long of boredom. At least get an ending right, after wasting 4 seasons of my time. Overall, I never enjoyed a single season and made me wonder how did this show even get 4 seasons. Probably the lengthiest generic harem show I ever watched.
Animations by J.C.Staff. Character designs were retained. Animations finally gets an update with a fresh coat of paint. But now, it feels like a 2006-era anime. Shana with the slightly worse character designs actually looks better, way better. Disappointing yet again.
Music is ok. OP and ED were decent. BGMs still the same.
Cast list were carried over with additional casts again. Takamori Natsumi, Kanemoto Hisako, Katsumi Masako, Yamanaka Masahiro. Nothing much to take note about.
Its really at your own risk.
If you are contemplating on which one to watch, Zero or Shana, just go with Shana. Why? I will do that in another post. They have so much in common but their execution are so different. I will be writing a comparison post in the coming weeks.
