Shakugan no SHANA II 16 – Thoughts on Yuji’s Big Sword ♥

Is that Yuji kicking ass in combat with the Blutsauger I see there? Are you screwing with my mind SHANA? I don’t think Yuji should even be touching that thing. It’s not that I hate him, it’s just that (for all we know) Sorath and Tyrael might have gone too far with their little hentai incest games. *wink wink* hint hint*

I loved the new OP‘s animation on sight immediately – the scenes are just so damn good. I had to get used to the song by hearing it a few times more, but I’ve slowly found myself addicted to it. I loved everything about the new ED immediately, those little light thingies floating around the characters’ still images are just so beautiful. The actual animation for the episode, however, ranges from below decent to great (the “great” being only a few scenes ¬_¬”).

I like how the second opening to the first series and the first opening to this series deliberately lied to us. The former showing us a battle with Shana VS. Sydonay, which never happened during that period. The ladder showing us Ike confessing to Yoshida in the snow, which never happened during that period.

Oh well. At least the openings have a big enough “cool” factor for me to forgive them for their LIES.

I like the way Yuji clutches his big sword. ♥♥♥♥♥

The ending for the first series seems to have made J.C.Staff go in a bit of a plothole with Blutsauger, though. I do remember it being ditched in Seireiden back then… Nice job there. ¬_¬b

But I am excited to see Yuji slowly returning to what he was during the first series, not being an idiot and having some backbone by taking on the fate that’s befallen on him (and now he’s going to kick some ass, dammit!).


Yoshida is given a decision between life and death, thanks to Pheles. I know that some people hate her and all, but I don’t really want to see her disappear. Trying so hard to get close to the person you love, but failing to do so – I know exactly how that feels. Her jealously gets on my nerves sometimes, though. ¬_¬p

The things Pheles said when she gave her that Hougu made her come across as some sort of jackass. :/

Hecate… glancing at the bird… like Fumina… dramatically…

This could only mean that the anime might cough off something in the future that I probably wouldn’t like. I love the transition to the ending song, though.

XD! Yuji is so out of place…

Yeah, no more big sword jokes today. Some of you only wished I was gay.
