What is Shadow Skill?

It is a manga series created by Megumu Okada.
It is currently being serialized in the magazine Afternoon Season Special by Kodansha.
There are currently three editions of the manga. Volumes 1-4 from Bamboo Comics.
A reedition of the same four volumes by Kadokawa Shoten.
And currently three volumes have been released from Kodansha.
Kodansha volumes 1-2 are the four past volumes. The third book is actually the fifth in the series.
Shadow Skill Anime is divided into three sets.
The First Series consists of an hour-long OVA.
The Second Series has three Acts, each about a half-hour long. This second series was continued in drama cds.
The Third Series consists of 26 episodes for television broadcast.

I'll make more complete pages about this later.

Shadow Skill TV Series (subtitled) is currently shown on AXN. I'm taping the series. Feeling nostalgic.
If you are interested in copies of the series (dub or sub), I do trades.
If you have nothing to trade, we can figure something out.
Since it's recorded from tv broadcast, I rather cram the entire series into just two tapes to save on shipping.

I don't reply to any emails about this site anymore, so please don't use the mail forms.
Currently, this site is dormant. I'm not planning to erase it, but I don't think I can update again like I use to.
It was fun, but I'm crazy about other things. I'm sure you understand.
It's my new site. All about Yami no Matsuei. I'm updating it daily. Crazy me.
Maybe someday, I'll be that crazy about Shadow Skill again. I really do like the series.

I'm concentrating on character galleries and summaries for now
They're less difficult to construct than merged episode pages. I haven't quite recovered from episode 7
Another fanfic has been uploaded, link is located below

Another fanfic has been uploaded, and an analysis of Episode 14 is up. I'm called it Moonlight Shrine since it's all about Soma, a little about Lunaris Umbra, and an observation of the world and history of Ashilana.

Another thing. Okada-sensei's book about Kuruda has been released recently.
You can find out more about it in the MCB site. There's also a note about a "book" about Dias, which I am going nuts looking for information about it. Unfortunately, both books don't seem to have ISBNs. At least, their ISBNs were not mentioned in Okada-sensei's site. If you have any info about these "books," please tell me

That Kuruda book is 3000 yen tax-free. I can get it, but I am definitely not at all willing to pay 3000 pesos for it!

Another fanfic has been uploaded. Link is below.
I've been working on my father's site. It's neither anime or manga, business, but you might be interested

Cleaned up the index page and changed the background image

Please transfer. I'll be updating in ashilana from now on. Later, I will have to clean out my yen1703 site of ss image files

I am praying you are not using Netscape. Netscape doesn't like my sites

Note: I have decided to combine scripts and galleries.
, for example has both Quotes & Images as well as Introduced Characters and SS Terms, etc.
Links to previous featured best episode images can be found in respective episode pages
I guess the new images are good enough. At least I don't wince
whenever I see them like I do with the old ones. If you want to borrow them,
you are welcome to them. Be nice too if you use them for your own sites. Give credit and a link back to my site.
Warning though, I put the SS logo on them to discourage borrowerings. (and to make it easier)
Apologies, but I went through a lot of trouble for those images,
and I still think they are not good enough.
Sigh... I'm starting to think like Nyan when it comes to images
