Nodachis Are Just Better / Katanas Are Just Better: The trope on the page says that Shana has a Nodachi, which is just a REALLY BIG katana. However, for all intents and purposes, in the anime it appears she just has a standard-sized katana. Has any information been explicitly stated to justify it one way or the other?
Pettanko is not a trope. UsefulNotes.Pettanko is a fanspeak term definition only. The tropes are A-Cup Angst (girl is sensitive about her lack of size) or Petite Pride (girl is proud of her flat-chestedness). Anything else is not a trope. Please return this example to the page under the correct trope if (and only if) it fits one of those two tropes.
Someone also needs to read Example Indentation, because that example is horrible.
Shana seems to be popular, but I just can't fathom why. It looks to me to be a well executed example of its genre, and that's about it. obviously that's an oversimplification, but it doesn't seem to break the mold in any way, just do a very good job of fitting within it (which might I add is a quality in and of itself, but not enough to convince me to watch). Am I missing something? I haven't watched it yet and I'm trying to decide whether or not I should.
PS: I just finished watching madoka, which was a huge break from the genre it would seem to have been a part of, so perhaps my expectations are a bit skewed.
She's the Trope Codifier for Tsundere lolis.
Hoo boy. Spoilers for the final Shakugan no Shana novel is out. The Snake of the Festival turns out to be the Big Good and not the Big Bad, creating a world where Crimson Denizens do not have to consume humans, removing the point of conflict with the Flame Haze. The Shakuganno Shana page may need a massive overhaul to reflect this. Oh, and Shana does end with Yuuji.
"Shana doesn't take it well when Yuji hangs out with Yoshida or Konoe but can't bring herself to openly show affection for him. She once thinks of cutting Yoshida down while the latter is frozen in a Fuzetsu"
When does Shana consider killing Yoshida? Does this mean Shana's a yandere?
