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.

Flawless masterpiece.

Shakugan no Shana is the perfect example of how to write a story with beginning, middle and end, a story that doesn't throw away its themes and ideas and commits to them to the very end.

The third season of this show is not only one of the best anime ever made, it also makes the two previous seasons better in retrospect. What seemed like a regular paranormal anime is now the first step in a fullfiling journey.

A masterpiece is not something that is perfect but something in which the good overshadows the bad and Takahashi's-san writing accomplishes that like a really hot, burning ...

Mixed Feelings

If you liked the first two seasons, stay there.

Shana III is a complete mess, from start to finish

PARTIAL (11/24) NOT completed, but for some reason I couldn't post a review without saying so

Some shows are great from beginning to end, over many seasons and OVAs and movies etc while other aren't and there are some that just fall apart after only part way through and should have gone final long before the end.

SnS Final should have gone Final before reaching "Final."

The first season was fantastic to me and I could hardly wait for season 2. All but the last 5 or so episodes were really worth much of anything.

Then, we reach this. This is a huge disappointment and I'm not going ...
