Wow, is this really Shana II? This week’s episode was so awesome, it feels like a whole new series!
Pheles finally makes her appearance, and Yuuji is scared so much he raises a fuzetsu with his silver flames, triggering Margery to go berserk, even as Marchosias tries to stop her from doing so. Wilhelmina tries to restrain her, while Shana takes care of Pheles, but they’re both initially outclassed.
Satou, Tanaka and Yoshida are caught in the firefight, and Tanaka witnesses Margery killing Oga-chan. Finally, Shana and Wilhelmina succeed in subduing Margery and Pheles. Margery finally calms down after listening to Satou and Tanaka’s words, and she sulks off for the meantime.
Pheles, meanwhile, reveals that she had put Johann, whom Wilhelmina thought was dead, inside the Reiji Maigo when they were under attack in the past. Furthermore, Pheles tells Margery that the Reiji Maigo wasn’t made to have silver flames, thus someone must’ve modified the Reiji Maigo.
The calmed-down Margery participates in the full restoration of the carnage at school, with the usage of Yuuji’s powers and the festival resumes as usual, but a heavy cloud hangs over the air of the main characters.
Again, I’ll say, this was one awesome episode of Shana, with action, drama and even yuri thrown together in the mix. I almost found it hard to believe that this is the crappy series I’ve been following last season, lol. At the end, it looks like the main arc will be starting soon, with LOL HECATE finally making her moves as well.
Hopefully, this momentum will be continued on next week’s episode.
