Haruhi And Shakugan no Shana Tie Ups Are In The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening

By Spencer . July 3, 2014 . 12:31am


Noizi Ito, perhaps best known for her Shakugan no Shana artwork, is also the character designer on Nippon Ichi Software’s Guided Fate series. The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening will also have a crossover with some of Ito’s works.

Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Shana from Shakugan no Shana are in the PlayStation 3 game. Both appear in sub-scenarios, but how these otherworldly characters got into The Guided Fate: Cross Thesis Awakening universe is still a mystery.

The five angels from The Guided Fate Paradox – Lillel Saotome, Kuroiel Ryuzaki, Cheriel Ayanokoji, Lanel Shiratori, and Neliel Tojo – return for Cross Thesis Awakening too, but for some reason they’re dressed in Love Live! School Idol Project costumes. Players will find out what happened to the angels post Paradox.

  • Siliconera you are soooo fast on this, this is like 1 and a half week old, but thanks anyway.

  • God.

    I should /really/ actually work on the first game some more. Who thinks NISA might confirm this is coming to America tomorrow?

    • DyLaN

      Doesn’t NISA usually announce localization after the games are out in Japan? Though I’m confident that NISA will localize this at some point.

      • They did confirm Witch and the Hundred Knight looooong before it even came out.

        • DyLaN

          I stand corrected then.

          • Ahahaha, sometimes my predictions can be a little spot on, yes. No hard feelings there.

  • Oh and here is the latest trailer revealed 2 days ago


    • God

      Dat trailer!

    • DyLaN

      I think this was posted in one of the article be4.

  • Kornelious


    I REALLY wish I finished the first game now -_-

    • ivanchu77

      It´s not like it´s too late to do it or something ;) , go for it!

    • DyLaN

      Probably the same reason with all the NIS crossover stuff. XD

  • Armageddon

    let add louise aswell XD

  • OMG Haruhi and Tojo I will get this =P

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    Shana…..I’m sold.

  • Postnjam

    Wait, you’re god most likely, but so is haruhi, and wouldn’t this mean that they might tell her she’s god and would ruin the point of the anime?

    • Xerain

      That depends on if she’s still God if Kyon’s not there.

      • God

        Maybe Kyon will also make a cameo.

  • shuyai

    oh yea what happen to Haruhi? the last book like 3 year ago. it seem way too long for a a hiatus, i wonder if the author drop it

    • Xerain

      It took him forever to complete the final book, but he did complete it. It’s released in English and everything. Everyone knew it was the final book, it’s not like he just dropped the series. I mean it’s 10 books long. (Or 11 books long in Japan since they 10th volume was split into two halves.)

      • Shippoyasha

        I just want Aya Hirano to reprise the role.

        Despite all the silly controversy over her, she is still a goddess of voice acting to me. I really hate social media sometimes for blowing such non events into career killers.

        • Xerain

          Her situation is kind of a strange one. She did intentionally distance herself from her voice acting career, as she as an individual wanted to become more main stream. Kind of like Miley Cyrus, in principle, not execution.

          Much of her fan base felt she basically blew them off, mainly because she kind of did, and have worked hard to demonize her ever since. The fact that she’s rather forward in her relationships gives them plenty of ammunition.

          As I understand it, she will not be voicing any new roles, but is willing to reprise existing roles.

          • Eder García

            “As I understand it, she will not be voicing any new roles, but is willing to reprise existing roles” i heard she was advertised in her latest role as “Retired Seiyuu” so i don’t think she will be Haruhi and Konata again…

          • Meteo

            that will be a huge disappointment. Her voice is pretty unique. Those characters wont be the same without her.

          • Xerain

            True, my information was from a couple years ago. I think the main issue with Haruhi is if they start doing more, they’ll have to finish it. If it were just for a single movie by throwing enough money at her.

            As good as she is, I think enough time has passed where they could switch her out without too much controversy, so long as the new seiyuu is up to the role. It’s also a good place for the change, as Haruhi’s character begins shifting from this point out. Additionally, her “on screen” time is reduced from here on out until the 10th book. (LOL at the guy who gave the 10th book a 1star on Amazon because “Haruhi is actually in it.”)

            Still, it’s hard hard for them to do more without committing to the rest of the series, so I think that’s actually the bigger issue. Shoushitsu is a good stopping point if they’re not going to go all the way.

      • God

        It is? Is there any source for that? I knew the wikipedia “ongoing” thing was not to be trusted but i checked a lot of forums and ask sites and everyone said it wasn’t over yet… No spoilers though, i still haven’t gotten around to read it.

        • Xerain

          There is no concrete proof it is the final Haruhi book ever. However, it was long rumored to be the final book, and ties up the plot threads nice enough where it certainly could be. It’s conclusive enough to serve as the final book, but open ended enough where the author could start another plot arc if he wants.

          When I read the fan translation of the afterward, it suggested that the series would continue. When I read the official translation of the afterward, that part was translated completely differently. The fan translation implies he will continue writing Haruhi, the official one simply states he will continue writing about similar subject matter.

          Which one is translated more accurately, I can’t say.

          • Jisgsaw

            I find it quite unlikely to be the final book, considering several plot points aren’t resolved (won’t go into details not to spoil anything).

            And considering how popular it is, I doubt the author will drop it.

          • God

            Really? I’ve been spoiled of a number of controversies about the series that are still ongoing, like you mentioned in another comment, there is the thing about Kyon being the Ultimate Quantum Observer (God Edition), and many that are directly related to Kyon being a role model for every Unreliabe Narrator.

          • Xerain

            I don’t post any spoilers on sites without spoiler tags. Many Kyon theories have been around for a while, and are primarily fan speculation. Therefore despite it being a theory I personally subscribe to, and one most Haruhi fans know about, it still remains speculation, as it always has.

            This speculation started very early on int eh fandom, so I would hardly call it a spoiler. much like how the ending of the most recent book was conclusive while being open ended, it seems the author works rather hard to keep the various conflicting fan theories on the table.

    • Serfo
      • shuyai

        ? what is this suppose to be?

        • Serfo

          A promotional site for the new Haruhi pachinko machine (a gambling machine). But maybe the revival of the franchise also, who knows…? http://www.haruhi.com, that could mean something big once the parts have been collected. For the time being, the only confirmed is a spin-off called “The melancholy of Nagato-chan”. But we have no other information like, studio, staff or date.

  • Xerain

    As awesome as this is, let’s not forget ZHP let you play as Dokuro-chan AND Holo.

    • aizen310

      Playable piru-piru? I want that O.O
      What is this ZHP?

      • Mar Mar

        ZettaiHero Keikakuin Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman. A rogue RPG which was made before Paradox. Awesome game.

        • aizen310

          Thank you :)

          • Daniel

            Its available on psn if you have a psp or vita. I have it on my vita

      • Will John

        Its just a costume. Basically in the game someone cosplays as various Dengeki characters like Holo, Shana, Kirino, Silver Crow and you beat her and steal her costume.

        • Xerain

          Considering you character is silent and you can change your name at anytime, she might as well be playable.

  • God

    It won’t be the same without Satanael, so i hope at least “Creator” is in this game… i also wonder if Renya will appear… at least as a post game boss or something.

  • Dark Zerato

    So, there will be more than one god in this game. Sweet.

  • DyLaN

    ….but for some reason they’re dressed in Love Live! School Idol Project costumes

    But the screenshot has the 5 angels in their regular maid uniform though?

    Also I’m wondering, why is Cheriel in her old angel uniform again? Or did she somehow regain her [TGFP Spoiler]angel power[TGFP spoiler]?

  • s07195

    …Now I gotta get this game.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    Yes! Any game with a glimpse of Haruhi is a game worth getting ;)

  • s07195

    Haha, obviously this series is the product of Haruhi-sama’s wishes! Obviously she’s also the reason Shana is here. XD

  • Xerain

    I just noticed that drawing of Haruhi is literally straight off the most recent book cover, and not specially drawn for the game. This makes it kind of weird.

  • DesmaX

    lol, did they just take an artwork, slapped into the game and called it a day?

    As long as they’ll give unlockable costumes of them, that should be enough. GFP was really lackluster in that regard

    • DyLaN

      EDIT: Nvrmind

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    So it can happen… I hope one day, we’ll find Donyatsu in a game with character designs from Kozaki Yusuke

  • KoRLumen

    Wew. Shana. Now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a while haha.

    • ShinNeoGranzon

      You obviously haven’t heard of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, its how I learned that Shana even existed.

  • KuroNathan

    I was worried for a moment that the angels would be in love live costumes the entire game. School idols are good but angel maids are the best

  • “for some reason they’re dressed in Love Live! School Idol Project costumes”? They’re voiced by those 5 Love Live characters (even credited as them). In fact, all but one female voice in the original game was.

  • Raltrios

    Shakugan no Shana being one of my favourite anime of all time, I now have some interest in this game whereas I didn’t before.

  • Interesting, can’t wait for it’s story with these characters :P

  • Nu Blitz

    hoping to see a secret ending with the MC from the 1st game

  • ShinNeoGranzon

    So do we have to fight Haruhi for the position of One True God? If so, we’re all screwed. Instant game over.
