Shana II 19

Shakugan no Shana II

Badass Yuji?! Surely you jest!!

Yuji is confronted and threatened by Zarobi, who leads him over a city-wide walk. While Yuji desperately tries to figure out Zarobi’s plan, he passes by Ooga and Tanaka, who are on a date, and purposely makes a commotion to attract their attention. His little idea works, and Tanaka, after some deliberation decides to inform Margery about it, and afterwards, apologizes for leaving.

Back to Yuji, based on information on Zarobi he has obtained from Outlaw, he finally figures out Zarobi’s plan of luring him to a crowded area, then setting up a fuzetsu as a target for his partner, Bandela, who will shoot at it. He takes the initiative and sets up a city-wide fuzetsu, and easily disposes of Zarobi, finally realizing why Yoshida and Shana are mad at him. Shana and Wilhelmina arrive on the scene soon after, and they finish off Bandela. Yuji tries to apologize for the matter earlier, but a sudden explosion distracts them.

So, for the first time in the series, Yuji has finally participated in the real fighting and I must say it’s surprising on how angry he can get, especially when he breaks the neck of the red Zarobi, who I must say, is a rather weak Tomogara.

Next episode will finally see the appearance of Sabrac, the infamous assassin, and it looks set to be another action-packed episode. Finally, this show is getting things done right.

    Well, he gets a badass eyecatch and pretends to be Saito for a bit… but does that make him badass? Only if he’s going evil.. hint hint.

    OMG Don’t spoil hehe so what if he’s becoming the Darth Vader at the end of this series. Even good guys that become bad can still be reverted back.

    Man, I’ve been waiting for this so long…

    Yuuji finally stopped being a “damsel in distress”…

    I welcome the idea of him becoming EVIL

    Evil is so much better than being a wuss, there’s no comparison.

    I don’t care what that guy’s Power Level was–the fact remains that Yuji crushed someone’s throat in, blew up three others with magic missiles, then impaled the last one with his sword. Fuck. Yeah.
