As a fan of Shana I was wanting a season 3 instead of another OVA and watched this with a lot of anger towards the makers. The opening played and I forgave the boys at the top without second thought.

This was made to give us Shana fans a nibble before we get thirds not to piss us off. It gives us alot of the humor that this story mold of body-swapping use (Yuji reaching towards his chest when he is in shana's body was an inevitable moment the second they swapped bodies) and I think the "shana" feel behind it adds new life read more

This is my first review, so please forgive me if it is a little sloppy (there are some minor spoilers).

Summary: The 1st and 2nd episodes of the OVA are mildly interesting filler that you could skip without missing much. The 3rd and 4th episodes, on the other hand, are VERY powerful. They give some back story to Shana right before she meets Yuuji and serves as a great and emotional reminder about what it means to become a torch and disappear. These 2 episodes are mostly emotional and character driven and have little to no action. I highly suggest watching it!

well, jusging from the 1st OVA, these 4 episodes are supposed to be a small joining point from 2 to 3
E.G: at the last part of the 1st OVA alastor revealed that the scope could only be used when there are no 'walls' between the two people
in other words, shana and yuji like each other and e.t.c

in layman terms, these 4 OVAs are fillers.
fillers dont move the story much, but fillers tend to either set a scene so they can use it in future for the story, or they are used to explain/ re-explain some things.

overall the 1st episode was good, though alittle ahort for read more
