The heated bond between Shana and Yuji is tested as their paranormal adventures continue. The Flame Haze fends off supernatural foes by night. By day, she contends with a classmate who's also after Yuji's heart. Emotions flare as a suspicious transfer student who resembles a recently defeated Denizen clings to Yuji. His training rises in intensity when they catch wind of a revered warrior in search of her lost lover—who will stop at nothing to extract the power keeping Yuji alive!

*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

== 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

Story
The story follows up from the first season, i have to admit that the pace at the beginning is usually quite slow, unlike the first season with plenty of action and fighting scenes, this may have put the orginal fans of shana season1 in quite a dilema since it was like watching another anime, but after episode 12, the flavour of season 1 truly makes a great entry and i feel this starts the fireworks for season 2, bringing back what we liked best from the first season.

Art
In my personal opinion there are no complaints on the art of shana, its quite bold, flashy, read more

I can imagine that just by reading the overall scor you already hate me. But i can't give it any more than this, when i overlay the "4" it says "Decent", and this second season (not the firs, and certainly not the novel) is WAY below decent. So i'm sorry but it's what it is. A poor second season.


I'm not arguiing that the animation and sound is as epic as ever. My main complain is "what the hell happened with the plot!?". Maybe the plot died at the explosion in the end of the first season. Maybe the people in charge of adapting the novel read more

Anime: Zero no Tsukaima
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.

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.

Anime: Fate/stay night
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.
