*A wonderful sequel to a fabulous series.*

It is highly recommended to complete the first season of Shakugan no Shana before watching this. This is a DIRECT sequel, so prior knowledge of the series is expected from you.

Shakugan no Shana II is sometimes viewed as a "filler" season due to the plot trailing off from the light novels where it originates from. It also received numerous "bashing" from fans of the previous season who complained that the first half of Shakugan no Shana II lacked actions. Personally, I really liked how they began Shakugan no Shana II so I have nothing to complain about. But many read more

Love Triangles / Rectangles + Flashy but Predictable Fight scenes = Shakugan no Shana II

Maybe it has been too long since I watched the first season but when did this series become so long-winded, predictable and love drenched.

Another Honest Review

Animation

This is definitely where this series has always shone. When it comes to action scenes this series can deliver some beautiful colours and some memorable attacks. Unfortunately they use cute-ish type character designs which often makes it hard to take some battles seriously, yes blood is included but its always left to the most brutal attacks which is often few and far between. Still animation on read more

== Shakugan no Shana II Review == (Updated)
By: ChaoticHoshi

Ah yes, what better to have a second season with so many things left to answer from the first.

STORY:

In the anime Shakugan no Shana II we learn more about the Reiji Maigo (The treasure inside Yuji Sakai) and its real purpose, but in the process a powerful tomogara as well as former enemies have their eyes set on the this treasure which will put Yuji in harms way once again.

The story does tend to start off at first slow which is in-fact a great let down. The usual tension continues between Shana and Kazumi still exists read more

Well, after I watched the first season enthusiastically, I was hoping to watch the second with even more enthusiasmus, but in the end I was quite disappointed with this season.

Story: 5/10
In the second season the origins of Yuji's Reiji Maigo are revealed and Bal Masque takes further steps to change the rule of the universe with the Reiji Maigo. (The reason for that is unknown.)
Well, this time the story was glib. Over the half of the series only dealt with the Love-Triangle from season 1 and the schoolform of Master Throne Hecate, Fumina Konoe. (Well, it actually isn't a spoiler. You can tell it with read more

Recommendations

Both are very similar.
Have the same synchro and the same character - qualities.
In these animes aim is to fight the evil ... whether with magic or a sword.
But the love is not too short and in both animes.
The anime also has what funny, the comedy is there, too.
these animes are so much alike the main characters are based on a gurl wit fire powers in bother than fall in love wit the main male character
Both have the harem elements all over. If you just love watching Kugimiya Rie (seiyuu) and Hino Satoshi (seiyuu) in action together, definitely pick up both.
Similar plotlines. Plenty of fighting. Tsunderes. Animation quality is relatively similar. Relatively similar tone and level of tension. Strong female characters. The first half of this season sucks.
Flames, Flames, Flames XD
both main characters use Fire Power
and whant to protect the one there love
fighting scenes in both anime are really good
really need too see both ;P
Both have similar fighting style and the main characters falls in love with each other. They have to face life and death battles.
