Shakugan no Shana II 20

Shana II

Sabrac shows himself with a bang, using his Unrestricted Method, Stigma, which causes wounds that continue to open over time. He immediately aims for Wilhelmina and Yuji, and even Wilhelmina has a hard time fighting off Sabrac, who seems to be truly invincible, taking all of Wilhelmina’s attacks without a scratch. Wilhelmina’s explanation of Sabrac’s abilities combined with Yuji’s weird feeling that he felt earlier leads him to realize something, and he takes off to confirm it out while Wilhelmina baits Sabrac.

Meanwhile, Shana and Margery are both injured by Stigma as well. Yoshida finds Shana and helps bandage her wounds, and Keisaku does the same, as they watch the ensuing battle.

Wow, a solid full episode of Wilhelmina fighting. That was pretty freaking awesome. It’s just too bad that Wilhelmina takes on a serious handicap against Sabrac, with his hax Stigma spell, combined with his invincibility. Truly Sabrac is a frightening opponent, and I’ve gained a new understanding of Wilhelmina’s skills, as she had to take him on like this every time.

Yuji gets demoted back to “damsel-in-distress” but at the least he seems to have caught on to Sabrac’s weakness. I sure hope he’ll pull out something brilliant next week.

    Wilhelmina did mention that this was her job in the past: distracting Sabrac long enough for Pheles and Johan to lay the smackdown. If Yuuji finds a little chibi-Sabrac voodoo doll in the sewers, I am going to facepalm.

    Don’t know what will happen next, bt what worries me the most is the fact that only 4 episodes remaining on this season… and a lot of things to cover up. Damn it, like Zero no Tsukaima, I guess we’ll get a 3rd season

    I’m gonna laugh if Yuuji finds Blautsauger and inflicts a wound on Sabrac before Willhemina or Shana. It just doesn’t feel right

    Considering the novels aren’t done yet, we’d be seeing a third season anyway.

    Not even Wilhelmina’s Giga Drill Breaker managed to scratch Sabrac. Now that’s scary.
