Shakugan no Shana Cosplay: Shana (Yaya) Cosplay 04 SEP 2013

Today’s cosplay entry borrows a character from Yashichiro Takahashi’s successfull light novel series (and anime adaptation), Shakugan no Shana, played out by the rather talented Japanese cosplayer: Yaya!

In the never-ending battle to ensure balance in this world, Shakugan no Shana’s Shana technically bears no name and is only interested in one thing – slicing up anything that would effect the balance. Befriending by a Torch unlike any other, Yuji Sakai, Shana is gifted the name mainly because a) it gives Yuji something to call her and b) it is better than being called by her full title which is Flame-Haired Blazing-Eyed Hunter.

She is what is called a Flame Haze and wields a nodachi named Nietono no Shana. Although not human, she does seem to carry many of their traits, and as her relationship with the Torch named Yuji deepens, so she as a character further evolves.

Oh, and she has a disturbing love for all things melon bread.
