Just like with the last season of Shakugan no Shana, J.C. Staff is having fun making parodies of our melonpan-loving Flame Haze. This first four-minute episode has some hit-or-miss references, but it is overall a fun break from the action and drama happening in the main story.
Art and Sound are given high points, as I've always enjoyed the quality of work J.C. Staff produces. Character gets a 10, because you get to see a side of your favorite characters you've never expected of them (but yet always wanted). It's like good fanfiction come to life.
Story is a lower score since it's a parody after all; it's coupled with a lower enjoyment rating because the jokes are often too random to be funny. But other references are great.
So far, this episode is not as perverted as the Shanatans from season one, which is a good thing; you won't be left feeling totally weird after watching it. read more
