Shakugan no Shana II 23

Shana II

Ball Masque’s ultimate plan; To create a huge replica of Rodin’s The Thinker.

Ball Masque’s plan is finally set in to motion, with the retrieval of the Reiji Maigo, that is then placed inside the Silver armor back in Seireiden.

The Flame Hazes arrive at the scene, with Margery setting up a fuzetsu to contain the blue hemisphere, which resists their initial attempts to break through. Finally, thanks to Satou, they discover a weak point in it, and Margery acts as the vanguard to punch through it.

Meanwhile, Yuji is left inside the hemisphere, with his Reiji Maigo gone. He quickly figures out the situation and decides to retrieve back the Reiji Maigo, or at least hold them off until Shana and co. arrive. He gets attacked by the robot guardians but manages to drive them back.

The Flame Hazes successfully break through, but Margery takes the full brunt of Sydonay’s ambush, and gets taken out instantly. Shana and Wilhelmina face off Sydonay, Hecate and Dandankyukyu, while the clock tower is slowly reformed in to a humanoid shape. Yuji, inside the structure, loses his footing and falls off.

Can’t really provide the specifics, too much jargon, but safe to say, the whole plan is to revive back the SIlver Tomogara, in a gigantic proportion, at the least. That was some good usage of the ending animation time there, with Sociometry fitting in very well. I have to say that the song is pretty awesome.

The action scenes were kinda short, but this episode being a primer to the ending, was done pretty well. I can’t wait for next week already, since it’s promising epic Flame Haze battles and I wonder if Shana will use her ultimate move at the end.

Poor Yoshida is getting left out as usual, and it’s been well-hinted she will sacrifice herself to summon Pheles to save Yuji, but I still think it won’t come down to her having to do that, yet. I’m kinda surprised that Margery got knocked out so fast in the game, she definitely took that hit from Sydonay way more terrible that one expects from such. Hopefully, she’ll be able to recover back to help. It looks like it’s gonna be a handful for both Shana and Wilhelmina to handle themselves as well.

    […] jokes about Rodan’s Thinker. My own view is rather more risque: OMG Bel Peol is making her own […]

    Margery’s been waiting so long to fight the Silver; she can’t possibly be down before she even gets a chance…

    I feel like I’m going to cry if Kazumi dies…
