5.0 out of 5 stars Some Interesting Divergences December 18, 2012
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At the end of the 1st season, Shana and Yoshida expressed their intentions to fight for Yuji's affections. This is where this season picks up. The 1st 2 episodes are kind of strange. A denizen has the power to trap the 3 friends in a dream world. Past events reoccur and confuse them. There are a few episodes that explain some events in Marjorie's tragic past. There are also some light hearted episodes where they all go to an amusement park, Yuji's Dad returns, and a school festival takes place. Most of this collection is spent developing the relationships between the characters. There are also a few new characters introduced. The origin of the Midnight Lost Child is revealed and the Caprice of Beauty come to collect it. This set leaves you hanging right as this happens.

My only complaint with this season is that nearly all of the key voice actors have been replaced. It's a little strange at first, but the new actors are very good and pretty well known. It doesn't hurt the series as much as you would think. The animation, soundtrack, and voice acting are all very good. There's not nearly as much action as were used to so far in this season. Even though things play out differently from the 1st season, it's still a great series. I think that it's a great watch for any anime fan. The 2nd volume is even better than this one. Major revelations and drama all make this series simply amazing. I recommend that you just go ahead and get Season 2 parts 1 and 2 at the same time. This volume leaves you hanging bigtime. They are both awesome and essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great 2nd Season! Every anime Fan should See This! December 19, 2012
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After learning the origin of The Midnight Lost Child, Yuji decides that he needs to train harder to protect himself. His new attitude creates a rift between Shana, Yoshida, and himself. Eita also distances himself after seeing Ogata's death. Even though she was able to be revived, the sight of his dying love leads him to abandon Marjorie. After some terrible experiences, the bonds that the group has built strengthen. The news about Yuji's unborn sibling also helps Yuji decide to stay in Misaki City. Just as he realizes this, and is about to choose between Yoshida and Shana, The Ball Masque appears. Hecate removes the Midnight Lost Child and uses it to awaken a giant monster. Marjorie, Wilhelmina, and Shana go to save him. But will they be able to prevent his disappearance?

This is an excellent 2nd season. My first thought was, "holy crap! All the voice actors are different." Yes, all the voice actors from season 1 were replace. No it's not a bad thing. It took a few episodes to get used to, but you should recognize all the new cast members. They all do a very good job. So I wouldn't worry about it. The bulk of season 2 is spent on character development. That's a good thing in my book. The key to a truly great anime is character development and a great story. This anime has both. There are a few battles. The Caprice of Beauty, the one who created Yuji's treasure, arrives and presents a challenge. There is also another Crimson Denizen, called Sabrac. He shows up and nearly defeats his old rival Wilhelmina. Plus the epic final battle with Ball Masque. Shakugan No Shana has great animation, voice acting, characters, and a very good soundtrack. There is action, comedy, drama, romance, and suspense. This is an incredible anime. It has worked its way into my list of favorites, and I can't wait to see season 3. I think there's a lot to love here for every anime fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shakugan no Shana...takes a break? February 1, 2013
By Zeck
Format:Blu-ray
I'm still up in the air about writing a review for season one. It has enough reviews already so I don't know if I could add anything to them. Season two part one though I feel differently. So here we go.

First, let's talk about probably the most obvious thing that viewers are going to notice: the changes. Big changes. Assuming you watch the show in English, like I do, you'll notice right away that every single voice actor has been replaced. And I mean everyone, even people who barely had any screen time. Of course, we know why Tabitha St. Germain couldn't renew her role, what with voicing the best pony ever, but the rest of the cast is a mystery. The new voices will take some getting used to, but they work--for the most part. Shana is now voiced by Yoshika Miyafuji from Strike Witches. Okay, so her real name is Cherami Leigh. The point is, Shana's new voice actor was the one I was most concerned about, but when I found out that it was the same girl who did Yoshika, I was relieved.

There are two voices that took some more getting used to than the others. The first is Yuji Sakai, now voiced by Josh Grelle. This new voice sounds a little too...jaded I guess? Season one had Yuji sounding like a hopeful, well-meaning boy. Here he sounds like he's lost a little bit of that. It's not huge, but it seems off just slightly. The other is Keisaku Sato (is there a 'u' at the end or not?), one of Margery Daw's followers. In season one, he sounded like your typical slacker kid who just didn't care, but has a heart of gold. This new voice, he sounds like a spoiled, whiny brat. I do not care for his new voice at all.

The other big change to the series is that things are said differently, mainly names.

Another SD upscale with bad dvnr
As the show wasn't animated in HD there isn't much Funimation can do. It would require the show to be remastered in HD which J.C staff don't want to do when they can upscale and cash in.
