Alternatively, you can go to the Shakugan no Shana Q&A thread and look at post #61.

have you looked at the definition of protagonist recently? you can have multiple protagonists, sure. but there's only one protagonist in the end: quantitatively someone has to edge all the other characters out.

but nevermind that. you know the events of the novels, and as such explicitly why Shana is the protagonist. >_<

Well, any story that is said in third-person omniscient point of view really throws my perception of protagonists way off.

true, it's much easier to see the protagonist when they're narrating, like in a property such as Haruhi. (though as with all things, having a character that narrates doesn't always mean they're the protagonist 0_o)

With the lull of action once more, the episode has lost its importance value for subbing.

Geez, even other people call Shana as "Shana" instead of "Yukari".

Kantaro sure knows how to keep tabs on his wife and son and the rest of the "village people". But I wonder on who keeps an eye on him?

Well, people are accepting Shana as her "nickname" when in actuality, she has accepted it as her first real name as she never had one.

if this episode was indication, that would be Chigusa. (when she knows he's there anyway)

Here's an idea:

Pheles confronts Yuji who is forced to defend himself. On the verge of defeat, Yuji overrides the current Fuzetsu with his own. Margery sees the Silver flames and charges in to kill Yuji but Pheles intercepts and fights Margery while Yuji escapes.

Ep 10 is boring.
I think Yuji is not that bad of a character. He might be slow with romance but he's not emo and always fight without thinking twice. Now that he can cast fuzetsu, i expect him to become flame haze in the future.
The Kantaro guy is not interesting enough. I was hoping he has something to do with tomogara and such but he just gives lame advice. And who cares about him and Chigusa's marriage history lol what a waste of space.
Pheles must be
Spoiler for her:
. Finally, another mature woman to add to the balance.

Boring episode and the dad waiting outside stalking the whole day was rather stupid. The animation also was rather medicore guess there saving the budget for the action scenes...

Also thought the same about his character didn't really add much to the series which is why I dissapointed in the episode though he would be an interesting character but didn't turn out that way.

More slice of life means bad Shana. Very tiring episode with no real point, just like everything for 3 until 7. Well, at least they got somewhere here with Yuji's father coming back.

I'd rate it a 5 for being a boring Slice of life episode [4] with an added bonus [1] because it had SOME plot in it [Yuji's father returning]. But since the last 2 minutes seemed to show potential for better episodes to come, I'll give it a 6.

Well... actually, Yuji can't be a flame haze.. cause he has the powers of a king of guze.. he's something else all together... more powerful than a flame haze.

Next episode looks promising. If I had to give a guess, I'd say that the school festival will mark the end of all this Konoe business. Don't quote me on that though

MYSTERIOUS SHINY BRACELETS OH NOES! o_O

Pfft. At least we won't have to put up with Yuji and Konoe together as Romeo and Juliet. And Yoshida is opening up to a threesome. Everybody wins.

I hate these eps that talk about love and how they have "do what your heart tells you to do" moments. It's interesting how they talk more about the Reiji Maigo what they shoul've done 8 eps ago.

Shana's relationship with Yuji is basically what the show is about. Everything else is a catharsis.
