pretty *.*


the fight's next week. :heh: though then again there's some cool action moments: the 20 second training sequence between Shana and Yuji, Margery burning the entire backyard of Satou's house with blue flame, and the occasional flashes from Pheles' (or maybe it was just her unrestricted method's) point of view flying over Japan.

uh, so this week is mainly focused around the school festival, and also Wilhelmina telling Margery about the silver flame problem (since I suppose next to Ramie she's the expert on such things.) Which isn't bad really, those two (er...four) hardly have any interaction together. The kids at school and the two older flame hazes have some nice moments too. It kinda reminds me of watching Shana in the early days...despite how old they are they're surprisingly out of touch with reality sometimes.

Oh, and Ike continues his life as comic relief by having his arms tied to a pole (appropriate choice for a scarecrow who wants a brain. >_>), laughed at by the entire school, being left for dead in the infirmary, and then upon recovering being dragged around by the other class rep just like last week.


well, right when Shana is about to express her feelings (for the 1st time I suppose, since s1's end might as well not exist), out comes Pheles. >_< at least she has a nice theme song. This is definitely the kind of school material S1 had a lot of (character interaction while guze stuff was brewing in the background), and a massive brawl between the flame hazes and Yuji (maybe?) against one apparently ridiculously powerful tomogara is about to start...so I think most people should be relatively pleased

very good episode. almost follow the novel perfectly, good time management, nice comedy on fumina as well as ike (poor ike again) good yuri on wilhelmina & margery (hey), surprising eyecatch (kiyashii 's Matilda and shana are so nice!), interesting new BGM.

just quiet disappointed on drawing style on part b (not too bad actually... for wilhelmina and margery)...pheles' face...come on, that's totally different from the face in next episode preview, right?

wilhelmina's mask design changed. more near to the original... although the mask in S1 is more sutible for wilhelmina's character design (especially the one dress in middle ages style), in my opinion.

and satisfactory for the description on jizaihou 風の転輪 in the episode.

I hope that's just a matter of viewing angle? (first is viewed from a lower angle):heh:

Pheles looks ready to kill or something.

The episode following this... is it really going to air in January instead of next week?

Yes, the show is taking a break. And it's for the same reason Clannad is taking a break.

What is the show that will replace Shakugan no Shana 2 timeslot for the next 2 weeks?

I'm assuming that TBS is taking a holiday in general. They will probably re-air Shakugan no Shana 2 episode 12 two more times because nobody will be at the TBS station.

I love how the hiatus notice comes up on the only dramatic part of the episode.

Wavedash 2007-12-20 17:19

If only all Shana eps could be this well done. Best so far.

So, usually there is only one commercial break for each episode, right?

well, there's the eyecatch before the commercial break and the one after.

Although I cringe at the cheesiness on pretty much every episode this season, I cringed the least in this one...

So it gets a 10.

Devard 2007-12-20 19:54

My first 10 for this season. I figured Pheles was either going to show up at the end of this episode or the next, seems I was right on that. I noticed some new tracks being played this episode, will be looking forward to the soundtrack's release in January. :)

Is kiyashii the one who drew that eyecatch? That would explain why I was getting these "this looks familiar" vibes when I saw that.

Quote:

Yeah, I noticed this one too.

ashlay 2007-12-20 20:32

interesting that the new mask's shape is like Ito's, but they kept the coloration of the season 1 version (and that yellow forehead marking)

Aquifina 2007-12-20 20:40

Considering the comments here, I can't wait to see the sub come out!
