This is not the manga for Shakugan no Shana, rather it is the light novel that was released in Japan and where the anime is based off. For anyone who watched the first shana anime series this will definitely feel like it's the exact same thing, but there are differences with this story and the anime (minor differences). Unto the review!

Note:
For those who are not aware this is a novel, it is entirely different from a manga (comic book in the U.S). This novel has very few pictures.

Pro:
The text is easy to read and not too difficult to understand (though there are some words that young adult readers might not know). The story is easy to understand as well, however, those who have read manga prior will have a bit easier time to digest the material as there are some reference to Japanese culture that you will need to either understand or look up on your own. The story focuses on life, school life, relationships and saving the world. Each element is represented fairly throughout the novel and the character development is one of it's strong points. While reading, you understand who Yuji Sakai is and the struggles he is facing; you get a feeling of how Shana feels towards Yuji and her Crimson guardian Alastor.

Con:
First of all, I deducted a star for this reason only, the novel cover and paper is not very good quality. I own the first 2 volumes and I have to say volume 2 uses a superior cover and better paper quality than the first (I don't understand why Viz used this quality for their first volume, maybe that's why the 2nd volume was changed and for the better).

First this is not a manga, rather this is a novel. Those who are confused a manga is equivalent to a comic in the U.S whereas a light novel has very few pictures. Well unto the review!

For those who watched the anime this novel will be very similar to you since the anime got the idea from the light novel. In this volume Yuji and Shana are getting familiar with each other as Shana trains Yuji to fight against other Tomagaras. Without spoiling too much this volume covers the bond between Yuji and Shana and how they must work together to defeat those who are after the Reiji Maigo and destruction of human life (torches).

Overall this volume is a step up from the last. I also liked how Viz changed the overall look and feel of the novel by replacing the bad cover and washed out paper with a proper cover and clean paper. A definite must for those who have read volume 1 or those who have seen the anime.

I'm writing this mostly because I accidentally bought Volume 2 (Fight Day) before buying Volume 1 (The Girl With Fire in Her Eyes). So please be careful when purchasing as neither Amazon nor the books themselves are very clear about volume numbers.

As for the book itself, Volume 2 introduces a new Flame Haze and starts hinting at more of a underlying plot. The main characters relationships also gets developed deeper. The fight scenes are decently written and lots of stuff gets blown up which should happen in any action series.

I really hope that we see more of the light novels make their way over here as so far the two are not enough.
