She’s pretty cute.
Hmm.. well, basically half recap episode to reintroduce us back to the world of Shakugan no Shana. At the least it wasn’t a total recap.
In short, Yuuji gets trapped in a dream world, where he relives back some of the events of the first season, mainly Friagne’s and the Aizen twins parts. However, he notices the incongruences and realizes his situation, finally breaking free from it, back to the real world where he and Shana are actually fighting against the Tomogara that sent him in to the dream world. Shana easily takes care of her, but she disappears with an ominous smile. Both of them resume walking to school, and when they reach there, Shana notices Yoshida bringing a bento box, which she declares as her second declaration of war (XD).
Hmm… a pretty mediocre episode, in contrast with the awesome OP that got me pretty hyped up. Probably too much Yuuji, he’s too bland. I wish they could replace him with Saito instead, that was one of Satoshi Hino’s more awesome roles. Don’t even want to mention the disappointing ED though…. I miss Takahashi Yoko and Ishida Yoko T_T. I do hope J.C. Staff will do a better job with the Shana series this time round, as the first one descended to mediocrity towards the second half, with a lot of messed up pacing and story development.
