Random: The Great Mystery of W-4

May 22, 2009 in News by Mycstea

Remember this sheet of lineup for WS2009 and that mystery W-4?


Here are some speculations that WS@NK-DS has thought up and i am suspecting a possible announcement soon… Speculation post ahead!


The infamous W-4 box

First of all, initially from that “flame like pattern”, our writers of WS@NKDS already had certain hypothesis of what is going to fill that hole. However after a slew of new evidence and traces of new series emerges, it all gets murky. Anyways, here are theories and a likely percentage of possiblility for it to be actually true (not standard and is based on my own opinions):

1) Shakugan no Shana

Obviously from the flames, that made it seem very likely. With a huge cast of moe characters and a huge fanbase of the light novel, it seemed an obvious choice. This idea immediately sparked the great debate of colour distribution to the SnS characters to great effect. There’s just simply too much possibilities for this to release in WS and it seems to be just too obvious… or not.

Likelyhood: 60%

2) Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st

It occured rather immediately after speculation of SoS that Nanoha the Movie 1st might have it’s WS expansion. With an already intact Nanoha StrikerS series in WS and enough fanboys to cry for, it seems almost stupid if there isn’t an expansion for this long anticipated movie. Of course, this might be just another fanboy’s dream for more loli cards in WS…

Likelyhood: 75%

3) Kara no Kyoukai (The Garden of Sinners)

Long famed hit Anime movie series Kara no Kyoukai was our next supposed speculation. This series also enjoyed a good Character set which is easily divided into different colours. However after certain speculation, it seemed that it is much more suited for an Extra pack release then an actual full booster series… Unless of course we’re talking about Melty Blood…

Likelyhood: 35%

4) Da Capo Valkyrie Complex

At least some proof at last. With new PR releases of DC II PC cards, it seemed as though Da Capo was set to have a new card expansion. This was all fine and dandy until one of our readers Victor posted me the link and it triggered a thought of a possible D.C.V. expansion or maybe another D.C. compilation like the 1st set. This is because for the extras included in the 1st Press LE there are promo cards as well as a deck case for WS clearly stated within.

Updates: Well apparently the offical website listed the art for 5 new D.C.V. cards as well as the deck case. Yum. Also, it is written in another post that there will be 7 new D.C.II. PC promo cards added to their trading collectionvol 11 (old news though).


5) Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi)

Yes you heard me right.

One sharpeyed viewer spotted Bushiroad’s logo within the sponsors of S2 Suzumiya Haruhi. With a history of sponsoring shows they’d eventually release cards for, this suddenly made the idea pop up in our heads. With enough characters and possible art for a full expansion, Haruhi seemed rather primed and ready for coming into the WS game. The sponsor logo almost definitely comfirmed a card game association somehow or another.

Likelyhood: 90%


To conclude, this post is for the lols and is just a speculation of what may be released. Possibly. So let’s keep all options open. Heck, i might be right on all counts or right on none, only time will tell…

P.S.: I’d want K-On personally…
