Shana II 22

Shakugan no Shana II

Saved by the bell?

Okay, so Sabrac didn’t die. Guess that’s expected anyways.

On to this episode, it serves more as a “calm before the storm” episode than another “angst-ridden romance” drama episode.

Kantarou returns again, to drop “Yuji-niisan” a nice bombshell of a future addition to the Sakai household. I personally hope for a girl. It also made Shana curious about how to “make” children, and she shamelessly asks the question to the Sakai household, as well as Alastor, who all dodge the question, until Yoshida tells her how embarrassing that question is.

After that though, Shana decides to end their romantic rivalry once and for all, by having both of them write love letters to Yuji inviting him to the different locations at the same time during Christmas Eve. Kinda puts him in a bind heh. Ike-kun alss realizes that all his friends has changed and he decides to change as well, finally confessing to Yoshida on the same Christmas Eve, telling her that she doesn’t have to answer it yet. That scene was much more epic in the first opening animation though.

Unfortunately, before Yuji can decide where to head to, he is ‘conveniently’ attacked by Hecate. I swear he looked relieved for a moment there. Hecate summons out the Reiji Maigo from within Yuji and separates it from him, ending in another cliffhanger.

So another chance to resolve the romance battle is foiled yet again by impeccable timing from Hecate and her gang. I’m kinda surprised though with the development of Chigusa’s pregnancy, even if I was prepared for it already. Still, it’s good news. Gotta love how Shana was innocently asking everyone how to make babies after knowing of that .

Anyways, back to the main story with the next episode, and will we see Yuji fading in to sparks or will he join the Dark side?

    I have only this to say:

    Thoughtless harem-like scenes in her Shana-tan show makes Hecate/Konoe cry. Which is why she’s attacking Yuji like this. ;)

    Sabrac is actually Kantarou, Yuuji’s dad. And you wonder why he’s always away on ‘business trips’?

    (just a joke by some fans with too much time on their hands, since Sabrac’s hairstyle and that of Katarou actually matched for a few scenes)

    Cute and funny episode.

    I’m really curious how Yoshida and Shana are going to react to the idea that Yuji really might flame out now. Not that the writers would ever actually let that happen, but the prospect of it in their minds could make for some nice melodrama.

    Since none of this is going to be fully resolved in 3 or 4 episodes, I’m already starting to wonder about Shakugan no Shana third, sort of ties nicely with what Yuji’s dad was saying about naming his kids eh? Makes me really wonder how the latest Sakai will figure into future story lines.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t they say that if the Reiji Maigo is removed, Yuuji would die instantly?

    No since it just restores his power to full every night. Since Yuji has a shitload of power he’d last a few days even without it.
