Definitely one of the more awkward episodes Shana episodes, in more ways than one.

Though if Konoe is really Bal Masque's plan, it's definitely working well. On the hindsight...

And... possibly volume 9 reenacted in the next episode? (( I spoiled myself. >_< ))

stuff like this is my bread and butter in SnS. definitely deserves a solid 9.


well, they have a lot of fun playing around with their new triangle...err, square, this week. Shana and Yoshida both end up completely detached from Yuji by the end of episode, but in the end it ends up being because they're both completely thick headed dolts. also amazed how much it still hurts when Shana screws up this badly; felt terrible for the poor girl as she looks behind her and Yuji wasn't there. I mean Alastor could have said something, but noooo.

Yuji himself wasn't too bright this week. After being fairly intelligent about keeping Shana and Yoshida happy with the lunches back in episode 2, he gives Yoshida's lunchbox to Konoe without even asking. (at least Ogata reminds him -_-) I somewhat wonder if Konoe had asked for Shana's lunch first if Yuji would have given it without asking. Still, seems pretty clear to me that Yuji just views Konoe as a little sister of sorts, and if Yoshida and Shana would just be clear with him about their worries, they wouldn't even have this misunderstanding. >_< Also feels like Yuji realized something about Konoe...but he's being extremely naive if he did. oh, and thought it was amusing that despite the fact Yuji is supposed to be ridiculously powerful at this point, he still ends up being worthless (matrix dodges Shana's stick only to get wacked on the knuckles. )

anyway, I thought that Shana and Yoshida would actually team up a little because of all this, help each other out of the rut and what not, but seems like that might be a bit much to hope for. Seems like it's up to Chigusa to get Shana to stop being so stupid and be a little honest with Yuji next week.

An average episode, but I loved seeing the competition in the restaurant. Why don't we see more humor from Satou? It certainly adds more dimension than his normal sullen self.

Konoe could be clinically retarded...perhaps it's a lingering effect of being humanized from Hecate? (total speculation)

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking of lines from Shana-tan version Yoshida while watching this season...

A nice, enjoyable episode.

Lots of Fumina, lots of jealousy.

Yuuji was just plain funny in this episode, in a good and funny way. He spends so much time with Fumina, and he even gives her his lunch which was from Shana and Kazumi. Of course, the result is that Kazumi and Shana start avoiding him. But he still has Fumina. Oh, and then there is that stare that Yuuji gave Fumina, but then he smiled after she smiled...

Ike gets ditched for Yuuji, though the whole class went "Jii~~~" at Ike when the teacher asked for someone...

Favorite scenes are definitely:
the ones with Fumina and the birds
the ones with Yuuji and Fumina and the birds
Fumina
Fumina's attachment to Yuuji (physically and mentally)
Oh, and Fumina chasing the butterfly and almost falling into the empty pool.

Fumina really seems to have an affinity with birds (and maybe other animals). Enjoyable scenes, those birds and Fumina.

This ep. is definitely No. one of Second season for me. Lots of fun, lots of Hecate/Konoe, lots of angry Shana, Lots of melonpan, lots of Yoshida.... It was absolutely great. I just couldn't wait for sub any more. My hypotetic question>>>> Is it posible that Fumina Konoe san is only a pupet, lead by Hecate? She is too suspicious, she ussualy act like an idiot, sometimes i think she has some secret power...... but doesn't matter she very cute, like my beloved Hecate

I think, it's no doubt that Konoe is only a trap set by Bal Masqué, to capture Yuugi

This episode is totally original material, but I'm not complaining cause Hecate-lookalike is just too cute.

If this is a visual novel, then Yuji has scored way too many "relationship points" with Hecate and has thus entered "Hecate's Story" permanently, since Shana and Kazumi are drifting away the next morning when Yuji walked to school with her.

When Kazumi saw Yuji just stared at Hecate at the park, I was half expecting her to hide behind her "Yoshida Exclusive" metal rod and smile evilly, as she has done in the Shana-tan Specials.

Just as expected, when a common enemy approaches, even the most bitter rivals have to put aside their differences and work together. To see Shana join Kazumi in the rooftop and having lunch with her, yup, they're gonna come up with a conspiracy to get rid of Hecate-clone next week.

Or maybe that isn't even necessary, as we see in the preview, Wilhelmina decides to take matters into her hands and rid the source of Shana's misery - Yuji - again. (Then it could be this part that incorporates parts of vol 9. ) Poor Yuji.

That was pretty enjoyable. Although I feel Ike's present yet quite sidelined this season. I wish he had a better role during these slice-of-life episodes.

Things don't look good for Shana and Kazumi...

And, is it me, or is Yuuji just amazed on how Konoe resembles Hecate.
That little chain on her wrist still tickles my interest...it must be somekind of Hougu that turns a Tomogara into a human.

Looks like that might not be the case. Poor Wilhelmina... (though she's not one of my favorite characters or anything).
