I was shocked by the final season of Shana. It went in a completely different direction than I expected it to. In some ways I was disappointed, but I was also blown away at the same time. Season 3 almost felt like an entirely different series from the one we have come to know in the first 2 seasons. The entire final season is 1 giant battle. There are dozens of new characters introduced that play major roles. The person we have come to know as Yuji Sekai is almost non existent. He has merged with the Snake Of The Festival and become an entirely new being. So it feels like we have lost something important to the plot.
Even though the story seems so different, it is definitely still the same Shakugan No Shana that we love. I think that we all had ideas about how it would end.Read more ›
Reader, ye be warned here. Spoilers are in this review. I will do my best to limit them and try to keep major ones out of this review, but in order to talk about the first part of the season properly, I must include some details. I apologize.
Season 3 starts off immediately where season 2 finished. And I mean IMMEDIATELY. Yuji is still walking in the snow and still appears before Shana. Shana gets super excited that Yuji has chosen her, runs into his arms, they kiss, and together set out to finally shut down Ball Masque, the group that's responsible for almost killing Yuji and Shana on multiple occasions.
No, wait. That's not what happens. Instead, Yuji looks at Shana, and then wanders off only to magically disappear. I kid you not. Shana sees him, smiles, and then he vanishes. I was not aware that Yuji had the ability to willing make his existence vanish from the mortal realm without even Shana being able to sense it. Apparently his training has been going extremely well.
What follows is a rather impressive war, with massive powerhouses on both sides and the promise of epic show downs between long-time rivals (who are suddenly introduced, but treated as if we should know who they are anyway), and previously important characters getting completely shelved in exchange for even more carnage on the battlefield. It is all rather impressive and is a joy to watch as Flame Hazes and Denizens tear each other apart in the final battle to decide the fate of the world.Read more ›
So, Shakugan no Shana is over. This is the end of the line. It was a fun journey, traveling along with these characters and watching their adventures. The first season was a great hook and took a nice spin on some rather cliche anime and manga tropes. Season 2 stumbled a bit in part one, focusing almost solely on girls' jealousy and love, but part two came back swinging with (to me at least) one of the best anime fights ever--the one against Sabrac. Season 3 part one was a bit difficult to get through whenever Yuji started talking, but the war between the Flame Hazes and Denizens more than made up for it. Now, we finally see how it all ends...
Wait, seriously? That's how it's going to end? Are...are you kidding me? Just...ugh.
Let me back up. Please note, there are going to be MASSIVE spoilers in this review. I'm going to be talking about the final episode and the fate of the two main characters (although if you can't figure it out by the box art, you're not thinking hard enough). So, I say again: MASSIVE. SPOILERS.
As always, let's start with the good: The action. When we last left the Flame Haze army, things had gone south in a bad way. Reinforcements showed up on their flank, Shana failed to prevent The Snake of the Festival from regaining his true body, and things were simply starting to fall apart. Well, now they've really fallen apart. What was a fighting retreat for the Flame Hazes turns into a full on rout as they are slaughtered.Read more ›
