They can certainly put the tenth book in this series, like what they did with Shana's past in the first season.

Well, sure, they could do "anything". It's just that the previews of the second season that we've seen in the past few months hasn't really hinted at the tenth novel if I recall correctly.

Fantastic OP. Couldn't wait but got spoilt by it, and I'd say I'll be on a jumpy wait for the fansubs to come out.

Was just wondering whether the new Tomogara girl will be any major impact on the storyline at all, considering that she's a 'non-canon' character not from the novels.

She is probably just there to cause some devilish - and so she is an anime original character then? O.O

I must be the only person here who was put off a little at the OP. I'm not a heavy metal fan unfortunately but that aside, I still think the music editing was poor. The heavy metal intro is over 30 seconds long while a TV version opening in an anime is 1:30 tops. That intro not being made shorter results in the 1:29 mark of the OP is extremely rushed. That aside, Kawada Mami sings very well!

Spoiler:


I also think Shana needs a sub-forum. 2 pages of episode opinions even before subtitles are out is an indication of the popularity methinks!

well, what exactly do you consider a major impact on the story? seems to me the only real effect any villain from the first season had in the long run is that Friagne left behind the anti-flame ring and the map of the city, and Sorath left behind the Blutsauger.

no, she's taken from a Shana nintendo DS and Playstation 2 game.

I've never played them, but I hear this arc is based loosely off the games' story.

I'm in agreement with Shana getting a sub-forum, firstly considering that this thread, the movie thread, the novel and manga thread and the first season's thread total to 3051 posts as of this reply (this one being the 3052nd) and secondly because of the activity of thread (2 pages of discussion for an episode that hasn't even been subbed).

How can you forget the fact that Sydonay has the knowledge of Yuuji's status? That was what led Balle Masque to try to kidnap him in the first place, and they will most certainly try it again, if the OP was any indication.

but their floating island is still up, hecate is back to normal, it's not like they're going to tell anyone else about the reiji maigo, the reset button on Shana's confession to Yuji was just hit, and Yoshida basically wiped away any credit Shana might of gotten from saving Yuji at the end of season 1 (round 2, whee)

so yeah, Sydonay finding out during the twins' arc did effect the plot, it started the involvement of Bal Masque...but so far Bal Masque has had absolutely no effect on the plot. 0_o No battle power ups, no changes in the relationships, no damage to the enemy ranks, and nothing on the Reiji Maigo. I don't know...I suppose we'll see if anything comes up next week with Hecate or if they reveal something about the Reiji Maigo, seemed like the trinity was in exposition mode from the preview. but right now, I really don't see any of the villains having effected much, seems more like its always been the other flame hazes. >_<


um...anyway, don't think this game character arc will change much other than perhaps making the status quo that of the novels, whatever that may be.

The subforum has been requested numerous times already, even before season 1 started airing. I've got so used to just a forum thread that I don't care anymore. I just wish some Shanatards would cut down on the pointless fanboyish posts.

I don't much care either, though I do admit that Shana is well deserving of a subforum. It just wouldn't affect me much at all, I rarely post in any of the subforums.

Why, Shana? Why don't you just admit to Yuji that you likes him? Because of this, Shana has lost a bit to Kazumi on the challenge of who will declare their love to Yuji. Yes, I know that the rest button has to be pushed to keep the love triangle alive. And, lest we forget, Shana was raised in the environment where Alastor and Wilhemina had chosen not to teach her about human emotion, fearing that it could disrupt her training.

Asking Shana to express her emotion and deal with jealousy and so on is quite difficult for her. The main reason why she declared that she likes Yuji in the Seirei-den is because it was the "last" chance for her to do so. She thought she would die (luckily she didn't) and gave it all to state that she likes Yuji.

Now that, both Yuji and Shana have survived from the event. Certainly, she could not state her feeling again and has chosen to use urasai x3 to conceal her feeling. What to do?

Spoiler for Spoiler from novel:


It is kind of strange about Wilhelmina's behaviour. After the event at episode 16 at first season, she left Shana alone so that she can learn to be independent. And now, she follows Shana go to and back from school. I guess that the fear of losing Shana again has prompt her to do so.

It appears that we have first couple in SnS II: Tanaka and Ogata. Am I right?

Mare's wicked smile has certainly reminded me of Aizenta Tyrael's (sister of perverted sibliings).

Question:
1) At about 15 seconds into the OP, whose hand is that?
2) Why are Shana and Yuji's clothes quite different at the near end of the OP?
Spoiler for Info from novel:

I was wondering who's arm that was too.

Someone told me that it was "the Silver's" arm, but i'm not sure if it's his or not. Anyone know the answer???

edit: whoops.

I see no other reason for Margery to appear immediately after all angry if it isn't him.




arm design seems about the same.

Because she is a 2D fictional character who the creators have decided that

is beneficial to sales.

Beside, the creators know that if they ever pair them up, the losing half of the audience who actually gives a damn about the love story will flee. Thus, nothing will ever happen.

They will need an anime/game original arc to buy them time, at least until they can conclude the novels,I m guessing they still need at least 2 more novels to finish the story or to at least conclude the "you-know-what" arc started in vol 14.
Overall, a nice episode, anyone know how many episode are in this season?

I don't think it's been announced yet, but we should find out within the next few weeks (or sooner) once Geneon solicits the DVDs. I'm thinking it could be another 24 episodes, but that's pure speculation on my part.
