Yuji disappeared the fateful night he was supposed to choose between a life combating evil by Shana's side or as a normal teenager. He returns from near-death to lead the Crimson Denizens in a dubious plot to bring peace to the universe, but Shana isn't fooled. In an explosive reunion, the fiery warrior faces her unlikeliest of foes while Flame Hazes from across the world join forces to ignite a war that will determine the fate of all supernatural kind.

Shana? Yes, I was waiting for the third season is very long!

The third season of Shana - the long-awaited project from J.C.Staff, which was expected not only to fans of the most Shana, but also people who love any art of this studio.

Since I myself am a fan of Shana, I can say that the ending was totally justified. This anime made ​​me remember all the seasons of Shana and this is good news, since not every studio can do it.

In fact, in the third season added a lot of sharp turns of the plot, which is good simple viewiers. (Story - 9)

Relationships cannot exist without bumps along the road. There are always conflicting viewpoints between two individuals and it would not be a healthy relationship should both parties agree with each other every single time.

Shakugan no Shana III, the long awaited third and final season of Shakugan no Shana, has finally made its way into light. After a cliffhanger ending from Shakugan no Shana II, SnS III picks up some time after the cliffhanger and presents the audience some shocking details that have the possibility to make or break the conclusion to this beloved anime series.

The last season of Shakugan no Shana was quite disappointing due to the storyline. The first and second season were great, but the main character, Yuji suddenly switched sides and went against the Flame Hazes in-order to protect the world. The storyline might've been better if it had some minor changes.

The ending wasn't bad, but all that they've done in all the seasons only lead to a kiss to end the whole Shakugan no Shana series. That kind-of disappointed me at the moment, I was hoping for a much better ending to wrap the whole storyline up.

The artwork was amazing though, it might not be read more

this is my first review in My Anime List

Story :
just to be honest! Shakugan no Shana III is the true adaptation of novel... this is the true Shana without fanservice or filler episode...
We're having a huge changes of plot since previous seasons and we face a faster pacing in this season... but somehow, J.C. Staff managed to pull it out and make it lots better than any anime they ever made before...

Art :
just same like previous seasons... this art is already good enough for Light Novel adaptation anime (please don't compare the art with Visual Novel adaptation)
the battle's art is very good

Sound :
I can't say read more

-Tsundere heroines
-Main boy character with same kind of special power
-Same aspects
-Comedy, Magic and Romance genres
-There is a character who is or dresses up as a maid in both anime 
Both have a main character that share similar ideals, even though they may not like some of the decisions they may have to make, they still make sure to do what they feel is right, They also have unique powers.

Both have some romance involved, action, and super powers.

One has mecha the other does not, but both have great beginnings and are forever etched into my memory, and have some interesting plot twists.

Both anime have similar characters, not so much a similar story line.
The main male character plays the anti-hero and get help from some sort of supernatural being

(watch the first two seasons in order to understand the relationship an story of Shakugan no Shana). 
Both have powerless male protagonists that was changed when one powerful girl appeared by his side. Becomes a monster-like creature due to his goals and overpower-ism. Both fantasy, supernatural, romance, drama, adventure and action. One involves mecha while other involves demonic creatures named Guze no Tomogara. Both has abilities to stop time.
