Shana II 13

Shana II

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.

Shana II

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.

    But poor oga-chan, i only saw the RAW but doesn´t it mean oga-chan´s a Torch now and will fade away?

    Nope, she got restored at the end. Because she wasn’t actually eaten by a Tomogara and was only injured inside the fuzetsu, she can be restored back to normal, which was what Yuji and Margery did at the end of the episode.

    Meganeshounan,

    you forgot, Yuuji got both Margery and Wielhelma to suck off his existance at the same time to restore the school.

    Hehe, I’m so glad to see the story finally getting back on track. It had been such a horribly disappointing season for the show up until now.

    So, if Johann was put into the Reiji Maigo, and now Yuuji’s the vessel for it… how will this affect Margery’s attitude towards Yuuji, once she’s calmed down, not sulking, etc? Given that he, or a part of him, is alive and in Yuuji?

    And I’d almost swear Pheles and Wilhemina were sisters, the way they act towards each other, minus the whole ‘Wilhemina being a bondage queen’ thing.

    Haesslich: It’s probably not going to be shown this season, but in one of the novel chapters we learn that Pheles actually saved Wilhemina’s life in the past. Which is too bad, since it would have made a great setup to Pheles’ eventual appearance during the Misaki festival.

    Myssa Rei: read that bit elsewhere – but the way they act is almost sisterly, in some senses. Still, with all the FILLER eps they did, you think they could’ve spared one ep to explain why Wilhemina got so distracted after hearing Pheles was alive.

    HECATE! YOU ARE A LIE AFTERALL!

    I was quite surprised that Marco maintained a cool head throughout the whole event, and even more surprised that Margery could still use her powers even without Marco’s consent. Guess the Kings have their limitations in the contract as well.

    wow, seriously? Now this is what I’m talking about.

    I’m speechless about the awesomeness this week, hopefully, the main arc will go from here. Pheles is amazing, no wonder she is “weaknening”, she hasn’t eaten any existence so far. Now I wonder when is Hecate going to make her move…

    that being said, Kazumi is going to branch off with Ike somewhere in the series soon…
