If you'd watched the first season of Shakugan no Shana, you'll be left wondering why the movie seems like an exact replica, as well as what appears to be a reused story plot from the last episode. To clear up the doubts, the movie IS what happened in the novels, while the episodes made altercations.

The first part of the movie is essentially a recap of the first few episodes of Season One. However, despite time constraints, characters like Yuji and Shana are fully developed, and we also get to see Fraigne the Hunter and Yukari in a new light.

The plot starts to deviate near the read more

If you have seen the Shakugan no Shana series then you have probably seen this movie and maybe thought to yourself...wait i've seen this before right?

Story: This movie was basically a remixed version of the first 6 episodes of the first season. Since it has to be compressed to 90 minutes or so, it was obvious it would not feel as great as the original series, but they still managed to get all important point across.

Now that I've finally seen Shakugan No Shana: The Movie, I'm able to remark on it plus a few things about the series in general.

So I'm afraid my opinion of the movie was shaped just as much by these things as it was by read more

The best way to describe this movie is as an enhanced recap, its summarises the events of the first Shana novel/ the manga/ the first of arc of the anime with a few extras added here and there.

The story of Shana is a beacon of originality in a sea of cliches and genericness that make up the majority of the action genre. It explores coming to terms with the unimaginable and the value of human life. This freshness of the plot grabs the viewer's attention and the removal of the somewhat lame love interest in the anime only improves the experience. The read more
