The limited-time event introduces Shana and Wilhelmina Carmel as battle characters and Yūji Sakai, Margery Daw, and Hecate as assist characters. The story event quest will run until October 22 and will feature full voice acting from the Shakugan no Shana and A Certain Magical Index casts. The story follows Touma and Index after they stumble into the Crimson Realm and encounter Shana.
The Shakugan no Shana series is based on the Japanese light novel series written by Yashichiro Takahashi with illustrations by Noizi Ito. ASCII Media Works published 26 novels from November 2002 to November 2012 under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. The series was adapted by J.C.Staff into three 24-episode anime television series, a four-episode original video animation (OVA) series, an animated film and an additional stand alone OVA episode.
The story follows Yuji Sakai, a high school boy who inadvertently becomes involved in an age-old conflict between forces of balance and imbalance in existence. In the process, he befriends a fighter for the balancing force and names her "Shana". The series incorporates fantasy and slice of life elements into its tale.
