Third season please, I will not be satisfied until I hear the words from Shana and Yuji that they love each other. That's the only thing I can complain about up to this point.

Shana ftw.

I agree, I was a bit disappointed neither confessed to each other but I'm happy their together.

I wonder if there really will be a season three. Maybe it will be more about Pheles and Johan again and.

shana's smile at the end made the constant fillers that made me want to gouge my eyes out worth it somehow

A nice, solid conclusion to the season. We need a third one though for some solid resolutions (their relationship, Pheles/Kazumi, Bal Masque in general. I gave the season a 9; it was better than the first, which I gave an 8. Beautiful 720 releases by Eclipse were great, too. <3

HD Shana is epic.

Although I feel the ending was a little bit rushed.

It should have an hour special..I thought it was way too fast.

Can't wait for the 3d season!

Shana + Yuji = Me being happy

waiii.. when will be 3rd season~ >_>
If they make a 3rd season, which is inevitable, it will probably be announced while Zero no Tsukaima 3rd is being aired and wont air untill after ZnT is done.

I liked this episode, it was a decent way to end the season,implying that there will be 3rd season. I was glad that it was made obvious that Yuji picked shana. I'm still disapointed that there was no confession. If there is no 3rd season and Shakugan no Shana ends this way then I will lower the score for this season. Because Hecate and all of them are still runing around and there's soo much room for more I think there will most definately be a 3rd season. Basically, I'll be mad if there's no 3rd.

ARG~ soo many series finished within the last week so now I gots nothin' to look forward to for the weekend = (

Also, for those who just finished watching Clannad, don't watch the movie if you don't want the rest of the story spoiled. I watched it the other day and it spoiled what might be a second season to clannad for me.

So it was good. Very good even. I mean I gave it 5 stars. But maybe I hyped myself up too much, but I expected more.

The battle scenes were great. Fast, fluid, well animated and very exciting. However, the conclusion felt really rushed. For them to build up to this all season long and have Shana and Yuji solve it in a matter of minutes, based on an interesting twist (albeit a deus ex machina) using Hecate's/Fumina's feelings is a bit disappointing.

I guess I was hoping for something more. Whether it was a cliffhanger or a more darker route. I was thinking it would've been really interesting if Kazumi decided to use the Hogue and died. And actually very interesting if the only way to stop the huge Tomogara was by sacrificing Yuji (I know he doesn't die in the book). But I guess this was the neatest, easiest way to create an opening for season 3. Which I'm totally for. But still doesn't resolve my feeling that the payoff didn't quite fulfill all the setup they did earlier in the year.

But all in all, I really enjoyed the season, as much as, if not slightly more than season 1, even the more slice of life episodes from earlier in the year. And am definitely looking forward to a season 3.

i was kinda disapointed... the ending was kinda rushed in the end, and I find that it wasn't very convincing... but all in all, the end with shana smiling really made me feel good...

And I'm pissed Kazumi ended up chickening out with using the Hougu. I couldn't imagine a more satisfying way for her to go out than protecting the one she loved most in the whole world, so much that she'd give her life for him even though he's obviously in love with Shana.

Great episode, I definitely liked this season better than the first, and Yuji finally chose Shana. <3

Season 3 please?

epic episode is epic episode, specially when watched in HD.

fluid animation, fighting scenes, story unrevealed, and cute shana add up to... epicness.

the episode itself was good, but for the whole arc, it felt rushed. they could have added more to that, but it was fine.

yuuji went GAR again, and protected shana, awesome.

i dont know why all the build up on yoshida with the hougo, if she isnt even going to use it, there is no real point. yes, maybe unexpected, but it was really unpleasant.

in the end, i loved the ending, and the ED song, shana going with yuuji = win.

i wonder what the footsteps disappearing means... if it has a meaning of course.

overall 10/10, the last three arcs made up for the lack of epicness in the first half.

season 3.. expected, but if they give a lame reason and make yuuji forget that he picked shana, i will go and murder someone.
but before that, i have a feeling of a second movie.

Last episode was epic. It looks like Yuji picked Shana in the end though it might just be just her smiling for the last time in the season...

It looks like there will be a third season as well from the way it ended so I'll expect more soon.

I'll give this a 9/10 since the animation/everything else exceeds the first one.

Love everything about the ep up until the ending and then i realized how crappy this whole thing really was. We build up for so long to get absolutely nowhere. And you know that there will be a third season and when it happens everything will return to the way it was a the beginning of the second season, they didn't even come out and say who he chose, even if it does infer that it was Shana. God, I really hope they build off of this and don't just demo it all like nothing ever happened. I thought so much more of this series and it ticks me off when it just ends like that

I know you guys will hate me for this but 7/10

Good ending cant argue there but felt kinda rushed. Annoying filler for the first half, yes i know it helped in beating the bal masque but then again winning only because someone had "feelings" is kinda lame imo. Animation was great Music was great Shana x Yuiji was awesome ^_^! But kinda annoying how they dismissed the confession in the beginning of the season. Good season but not better than season 1.

I was really skepticle about this season at the beginning. The first one left quite an impact and the second sort of dragged on at the beginning. Yuji was really stupid then and it just got old. However, as the characters matured, the season exploded and I couldn't wait for more. Now it's over...

Despite that, it was an excellent way to end the series and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I'll admit, it felt a little rushed, but I don't think they could have added another 30 minutes of materials to that without dragging something out too long (probably would have been another speech by the stupid professor *shutters*). I have Shana's final smile as my desktop background and it will probably stay there for quite some time.

I'm really excited to see how a third season would develop. The scary thing is, they didn't leave a whole lot open for it. Yuji and Shana's potential relationship is a given, but that's pretty much it. Belle Masque seemed to get the picture that they can't win. Unless the producers can think up another scheme to give Belle Masque a chance, they may have to develop another sort of enemy group. Either that, or turn the series into a school/slice-of-life, which would completely butcher it. Nevertheless, I think it's safe to say that if a third season isn't coming, it will be one of the most depressing pieces of anime news I will ever hear.

The only thing made me smile after Shakugan no Shana Second is over is Shana's HAPPI face.

Hmm. I also felt the ending was a bit too rushed. I was killing myself wondering how GAR of an ending they could make it - and then Hecate remembered her vessel's days with the other guys and was defeated. Meh. And I also wished Kazumi had used the Hougu.

Actually I was really wishing for a death just to make it a bit more impacting (even Margery lived, not that I'm complaining). I just felt like there was no death because it's one of those shows that can't kill off its characters without having millions of (insert whatever character name)'s fans commit seppuku =P

Oh well. In any case, I still give it a 9 for its past few epic episodes. Third season sounds like a good idea, although I don't think they could pull off another 24 episode season :3

This was a terrible episode that pretty much sums up everything wrong with the modern acceptance of mediocrity in all forms of media. A perfect capstone to a terrible second season. It was obviously far too rushed, the fights were as incoherent as everything in season II, and the Yoshida thing was a joke. Disgusting.
Elsewhere, a somewhat startled Warren Worthington III finds that he has accidentally wandered into an electrified east-side world of post-twist teens and watsui-ing teeny-boppers...

A third season is pretty likely depending on how far the novels go. But I don't think we'll see as much character development in the third season like this one.

I agree with the episode being rushed, but damn, there were some epic scenes in the 2nd half of this series. I'm looking forward to season 3 whenever J.C. Staff decides to get on it. I gave this show 9/10, as with the first season.
