Shana can utilize her Flame Haze power without the presence of her Cocytus, which (in Shana's case) takes the form of a pendant.

Here is additional information from Kinny Riddle's Terminology and Metaphysics Discussion Thread:

In other words, the pendant only stores Alastor's conscience (his brain, to put it simply), but the main body of Alastor and thus his strength are stored inside Shana's body, which acts as a vessel to store the massive existence of Alastor.

I would suggest that anyone, who is the new to this anime or requires a refresher course on this anime, takes a quick read through the Terminology and Metaphysics Discussion Thread which is very informative for anyone.

I think he asks about the sword.
It's indestructible as far as I know, so did Shintetsu Nyoi.

I also remember that the Nietono no Shana is an anti-spell (take note, not anti-flame like Azure) sword. Not sure tho.

This continues, what I am hoping for, a splendid curtain call season for that famous flame haze. I hope the pace does not let up now that we are approaching the 'middle eight' of a season. Loving it all over again so far too. Good to see 'our girl' in fine form as well.

Rie K gets the "hat trick'' again this week with P4A, IM@AS and "Shana" all scoring goals a plenty.

Has the Nietono-no-Shana always been able to eat existence like it did whenever Tenmoku Ikku killed a Denizen?

9/10. Great episode once again!

While Khamsin and Rebecca are being all flashy, Wilhelmina seems to be using a spell which makes her invisible. I guess this means that Khamsin and Rebecca are a diversion while Wilhelmina is trying to find Shana.

Shana was completely helpless again this episode. This shows the difference in power between humans and flame hazes/guze no tomogara. The scene where she couldn't find the strength to stand up was very powerful.

She just needed something to get her powers back. One chance, one moment was all she needed. And that chance came when she called out for her sword with everything she had. And her call was answered. The sword came to her....in the form of Tenmoku Ikko. So he was still in Nientono no Shana after all.

Since Nientono no Shana can cut though Unrestricted Spells, Fecor didn't even stand a chance against Tenmoku Ikko. His magnesia was cancelled and he was cut down. Too bad, since I liked his character/ability.

Now that Shana has her powers back, we will finally get to see her back in action again. She'll have to get stronger in order to beat Yuji though, so let's see how she's planning to combine her 'two sides'.

Seireiden lost the camouflage, so now the other flame haze will be able to find it as well. Shana, Wilhelmina, Khamsin and Rebbeca, combined with outside help will be able to destroy everything there if Yuji and the others don't return soon. I wonder if they'll return soon.

Can't wait for the next episode!

One hell of a beautifully done episode with the most unexpected twist of Tenmoku Ikko being summoned & cutting through Fecor's Magnesia. :'D

@Marcus H.
I believe that the following text from Shana Wikia should be rewritten.
Quote:
Source
Shana brings up the full potential of the power of the Nietono no Shana, as she was able to make the blade sprout flames, while others who have wielded the blade, such as Sorath and its previous owner Tenmoku Ikko were unable to.
As you said, the katana is anti-spell, but it cannot be used to sprout flames by itself, when it is used by others. Correct me if I am wrong. The flame itself originates from Shana, thus only Shana can make the katana release flame.

On a side note, Shana was certainly terrified when the Rinne kept holding onto her leg, like a mindless zombie. Certainly a horrifying experience anyone of us would not want to endure.

If so then meh, kinda felt like an "easy way" to get rid of him because the impregnable defense was troublesome to the story, not to mention his entire figuring things out process was then meaningless, since it was just him.

The insert that plays when Shana regains her powers is so fitting....

Why did I feel bad seeing those Rinne get cut up Higurashi-style? ;_;

His actual form is in Guze actually...all Flame Haze are like that

Tenpa Jyosai just lets him manifests on this world through the Flame Haze

Remember what Decarabia says...the majority of Bal Masque's forces are being recalled to Seireiden to face the attacking Flame Hazes.

It seems to me that the fight was interrupted when rebecca was going to use all her power or maybe JC ommited the fight....

Fecor was one of my favourites... he died so easily.

what an eps, we learn the secrets of the 2 cities in the sky, Shana's katana can move on its own, and the gate being destroyed by a rocket punch launched from a mecha made of rocks

Shana has been playing princess for too long, surely she will release her anger on those trying to stop her

anyway the defense inside Seirei-den seems weak, really weak...
