Guess who's back? Back again...
SHANA IS BACK! Tell a friend...

If I could give this episode 10/5 I would...one of my favourites of the whole series so far.

This show is getting better every week now, good job on this adaptation JC Staff! Also I LOVE THAT DRESS!

Amazing episode! The moment Shana grabbed her sword and turned into blaze left me completely in awe. The action seems to increase by the episode. and the suspense is just going higher.
Sereiden is completely open and Shana is back in RED!
I'm really looking forward to see SoF Yuiji vs Shana, just like in the first episode.

Also, was it just I that made a giant smile during her transformation? It really felt good seing that.

Geez, Shana was such a freak this episode.
Those Rinne were hot though; what a waste.

I gotta say, I also felt certain satisfaction upon seeing that.

Shana is back indeed, let the party start.

Well I guess they had to advance the storyline somehow. Just seemed a bit too easy, and a bit too predictable. Breaking the barrier through a relative cliche way is ridiculous, especially when it's basically a deus ex machina, But I can't really expect that much, it wasn't irritating, just could have been done better. They lost way too easily.

3/5

Well, after you've gone from incredibly powerful to weak and the only thing that's stopping you from getting your power back is a bunch of weak Rinnes you can't kill now, yeah, you kinda would beat the living shit of them.

Good episode,she is back.

Khamsin and Rebecca doing their job destroying everything while Wilhemina "tries" to save Shana.

They using the castles was interesting but kinda lame that nobody knew about it...or they know?? mmmm

Shana getting psycho was well done i really enjoy it seeing her lost it like that,poor Rinne.


Seeing Tenmoku Ikko again and he slaughtering everyone and breaking Decor's Magnesia was amazing he just kicks ass!


The best scene so far without doubt is her recovering his power just give me the chills....she is back!!


Next episode we get to see her kick some asses.

Btw Shana in dress looks so cute.

Now this was a good episode but I feel that they were able to destroy the mirrow pretty quickly.

Anyway I wonder why Sophie is going there? I hope to see some good moves from her since she is the leader. But at the same time I wonder if she is destined to die since Shana is our main character?

Called it, knew Shana would get her powers back this episode; i think the pacing is good; if they can keep it up it will be even better; well seems like the palace is going to fall but it will be interesting to see what kind of up grade Yuji gets after they return.

I'm guessing the novels don't explain why Tenmoku Ikko now has special Mystes teleporting powers? Or why Shana was not capable of moving her legs even though she didn't suffer any apparent damage from the ceiling collapse?

if i can remember correctly it was from a previous season. he either is the sword itself or is the real master of it because shana had to defeat him in order to gain control of the sword. im pretty sure thats it, its been like a year or so since i seen it.

How did he break the barrier through Deus ex machina? The person who was containing the barrier was either injured or killed by the samurai(aka shana's sword). Which caused for the barrier to fall, they saw this opening and fired the arm cannon. I dont get how that is cliche when it follows the rules in place. O.o?

That samurai guy is the sword itself basically. He was originally the creator of the sword and his soul became one with the sword so his the sword itself. He was looking for a deserving master for the sword that can beat him in battle and he was defeated by Shana so she became the master of the sword. It was shown in previous seasons.

Anyway, isn't that mirror like a pathway to the world Yuji went? If that mirror breaks won't they be trapped and not able to leave that world?

I liked how the connection between the two palaces was explained in this episode.

Seeing Shana finally regaining her lost powers was rather touching, in my opinion.

Actually, they only broke the Seireiden stealth system. In other words, all the enemy Flame Hazes can come attack it now.

What teleporting powers are you referring to? Also, Shana was in fact injured from the damage. Her energy is nearly completed depleted as she's not even human lol.

Am I the only one who seems to find this series really boring at what it does?

The action is a bit sparse and anytime they need to explain something, it's always some long winded explanation with lots of people with very long names. I'm not trolling or anything as I've looked forward to this series as much as anyone else here but it just feels really poorly done. It's hard to put a finger on, it just feels mediocre.

I'm actually rooting for Bal Masque as I actually find alot of their characters likable and I'm feeling nothing for any of the Flame Hazes, except for Shana...a little. That's about it. Yuji needs to get back and own them all soon.

My only gripe was that the animation didn't match up that well to Shana's moaning and groaning.

Great episode, though. DESTROY EVERYTHING.

Oh, and did the samurai guy kill Fecor?
This love for Hirasawa Yui consumes me, washing over my dirty weeaboo body with a cleansing warmth that allows me to reach greater heights.

but he certainly doesn't lack the courage :/

ANYWAYS, when shana was 'destroying' that Rinne , it was just O.O ((still epic though! 8D)
each episode is just getting better and better!
J.C staff are doing great imo, and hope it gets better

It isn't Shakugan no Shana without Shana of course! Makes all the long explanations containing long names more bearable. ;)

I hope Yuji comes and rapes everybody. Shana should know her place. Now that she has her knife and flames back, she should be in the kitchen. Why is she still running around? Yuji`s gonna come back soon and she`d better make some food before that!

I pity Fecor, he was somewhat the most civilized looking fella out there. All others are just freaks. Both denizens and hazes are all just violent savages.

Nevertheless, Shana looked sexy with all that screaming and stabbing. I like it when cute little girls in white dress loose it and start acting like crazy because of fear, when they cry, growl, howl and stab things. But i think that scene lacked something - probably some splashes of blood and brains.

Up until that moment, I wasn't aware that the sword could magically manifest itself into its original wielder due to incessant cries from Shana. Then the sword could somehow continue on to destroy everything in its way. If that was the case, why not do it sooner.

Then again, I could be wrong, I watched the previous seasons months ago. But from my recollections, I don't remember that being possible. It just seemed a bit forced, the fact that the "defending" troops were obliterated so easily doesn't flow either. It's generally much easier to defend than it is to lead an assault, especially if you're going up against a powerhouse.

This episode was truly great! It shows so many new actions, fight scenes, and awesome footages! Glad Shana has got her Nietono no Shana back lol. This ep was just BA in general ^^.

That one scene with Shana going berserk was quite interesting, too. I'm glad to have watched this episode! :D

thought Shana losing it on that Rinne and Tenmoku Ikko killing everyone including Fecor was a bit over the top.. but the one scene that made this episode win was when Tenmoku returned to his master, knelt down and returned the sword to Shana while she goes Flame Haze mode.. i kinda felt the connection between the sword and its bearer..

had Shana realized calling for Nietono no Shana with all her will earlier, she wouldn't have had to suffer.. oh well, it made the scenes to follow more dramatic, i'd guess..

I wonder if Tenmoku Ikko is actually stronger then Shana herself. When was the other time Tenmoku appeared? It's been a while for me since I saw the first two seasons... But he's cool. Killing Fecor was lame. ROCKET PANCH, I lol'ed. Didn't mind the lion though. So, Shana goes Kill Bill mode again.

Tenmoku Ikko appeared the same day that Shana made her contract with Alastor. She used the leverage of becoming a Flame Haze (and threrefore an extremely strong opponent for Tenmoku Ikko) in order to get Tenmoku Ikko to destroy the tomogara that was there, which I thought was really damn smart for someone who was no more than 14 at the time.

If Tenmoku Ikko seriously killed Fecor i call bullshit there is no way Tenmoku can kill Fecor that just comes across as a massive ass pull.

Oh and i know Shana was desperate and at the end of her rope and everything but did she really need to kill that Rinne? The Rinne was just following Yuji's orders and protecting Shana. Even when she grabbed Shana's leg she was only trying to stop her to keep her protected just like she was told to and Shana bashes her face in, the Rinne didnt even fight back just kept trying to protect her till she died..... i thought that was kinda sad for the Rinne lol

No, Shana doesn't want to stay with the Rinne it would only make Whelhimea (w/e her nam is) job to REALLY protect her harder besides does she look shes in trouble? no she has her sword and can own now nothing really to be sad about.


You know Shana was nearly crushed and killed in that explosion that was caused by her own brain dead comrades at least the Rinnes are nice lol
