If you have seen the Shakugan no Shana series then you have probably seen this movie and maybe thought to yourself...wait i've seen this before right?

Story: This movie was basically a remixed version of the first 6 episodes of the first season. Since it has to be compressed to 90 minutes or so, it was obvious it would not feel as great as the original series, but they still managed to get all important point across. The later minutes of the movie however, had the most alterations and where IMO the most enjoyable ones from the movie.

Art: Movies always tend to have a higher animation read more

If you'd watched the first season of Shakugan no Shana, you'll be left wondering why the movie seems like an exact replica, as well as what appears to be a reused story plot from the last episode. To clear up the doubts, the movie IS what happened in the novels, while the episodes made altercations.

The first part of the movie is essentially a recap of the first few episodes of Season One. However, despite time constraints, characters like Yuji and Shana are fully developed, and we also get to see Fraigne the Hunter and Yukari in a new light.

The plot starts to deviate near the read more

The best way to describe this movie is as an enhanced recap, its summarises the events of the first Shana novel/ the manga/ the first of arc of the anime with a few extras added here and there.

The story of Shana is a beacon of originality in a sea of cliches and genericness that make up the majority of the action genre. It explores coming to terms with the unimaginable and the value of human life. This freshness of the plot grabs the viewer's attention and the removal of the somewhat lame love interest in the anime only improves the experience. The read more

Now that I've finally seen Shakugan No Shana: The Movie, I'm able to remark on it plus a few things about the series in general.

Let me start off by saying that, on the whole, I like this movie. I didn't get any opportunity to see it until after I'd already read the first light novel (which the movie takes much of its story from), read the first manga volume and seen all of the first season (and most of the second) of the TV series. So I'm afraid my opinion of the movie was shaped just as much by these things as it was by read more

i found the movie shakugan no shana interesting too because some parts from the series when combined into this became different like the scence where the flame heaven alastor appeared and where the scence of hirai yukari where much longer
oh well the movie of shakugan no shana is great because it retains the action

Shakugan no Shana Movie is basically about the first few episode of the 1st season of Shakugan no Shana, shortened into an hour and half movie.

Best watch this BEFORE watching the 1st season. As watching the anime before this is almost like a recap of it. There are some irreverent parts of the movie along with the lack of bgm on some parts of the movie as well, otherwise it's a great movie to watch.
