Shakugan no Shana II – 01
Well, here it is once again, Shakugan no Shana, one of the most aniticipated animes for last season.
Yes yes, i know that i am late in watching this anime, but so far only 12 eps are out, so i can still catch up to it. ^^
Anyway, this episode is titled
‘Time For Restart’
Alright, this episode starts of with Yuuji narrating about the new school semester and about the characters and how their lives are after the big battle in Season 1. Along the way he gets one or two deja vu and realises that something is wrong and it seems like he is the only one who knows it. Yes, history seems to be repeating itself and he is the only sane one who knows. (observe his shocked face! and yes, i know it is over done) but in order not to spoil what happens in the rest of the ep, i shall just say that it is quite interesting.
This episode started off strongly, and beautifully. You have aciton, and mystery, and a build up in plot for what is to happen next. The end of the episode leaves you pondering somewhat about the future and at the same time it does not give you the idea of.. “good lord, what is going to happen next!?” it is more of a “oooo, i wonder…” kinda thing.
Animation wise, it is really pretty, i love the colors and the character designs a whole lot.
With a good balance of pretty animation and a hint of romance with action and mystery, Shakugan no Shana II is going to leave you wanting for more.
For – people who like Shakugan no Shana or at the very least found it acceptable.
Not For – people who has yet to see Shakugan no Shana
