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!

Probably the best of all Shana franchise. I wish they had made a romcom SoL for Shana instead of the mess that comes in Final.

Episodes 1 and 2 had me smiling and happy and did not prepare me at all for the wreck that Final is. Episodes 3 and 4 were ground so much better and had me invested. Hell, it made me miss my own mom. That's how in my bag I got.

Anyways, If you've slogged through seasons 1 and 2 to S, you'll probably watch the Final. Its not worth it, but its my opinion. Shana S is the best of read more
