Well, everything is even more horribly off from the novels than the end of season 1, and we're still stuck with a cliffhanger. Unless they finally just decide to change the story entirely, viewers will be stuck with plenty of of stuff like the hecate arc in a season 3.

Yeah, this is the absolute last straw. I just can't forgive them for ruining such a good plot point utterly and completely for what turned out to be absolutely no reason.

J.C. staff, I very much hope you croak. >_>

Don't ask me why.
Thanks, I guess. But I have no wish to tread into their territory just for that.

It's been anime-original since episode 22, so the ending was also anime-original.

To be precise, the last bit of the 22nd episode was original material. The two girls really did send out letters to Yuji to end the battle in the novels.

Hecate's character development has always been one of the things I've enjoyed most about the Shana anime, so personally I'd be very interested to see how they might tie that in with future novel events in a third season...

There is certainly room for anSnS3 as this story has room to move forward. Bad guys to fight, relationships to advance, characters to develop, questions to be answered and possssssssible book material to be covered; however there has been no official announcement for SnS3 yet.

I got a serious case of deja vu from season one's finale. More ShanaxYuji, more cheesy, ambiguous, and open-ended endings. As usual, everything merely returns to the status quo, ready for JC Staff to take a third season, I guess we'll see if they actually do.

I liked the fact that they used "sense" for ending credits though, probably the best new song from Kawada on her album.

I haven't watched the episode yet, but judging from the screenshots, I'd say it's probably a very good action episode, but might fare poorly as an ending to everything.

It does look obvious that J.C's leaving it open for a possible third season and being as much of an optimist as I possibly can, I hope they can learn from the mistakes they committed in Season 2 if they are planning a continuation. Omni from Random Curiosity summed it up pretty well; That there was pretty interesting stuff, but wasn't made full use of and had poor pacing.

Yuji didn't have the ability to fight in Season 1. As far as I remember:
Spoiler for For Season 1, just in case:
This time we get to see some significant teamwork between the two.

Spoiler for Yuji x Shana:

Great episode, but a decent ending to a decent season.

I liked the battles. They were animated well and they seemed intense. The music played throughout the episode was good as well, especially the ending song.

I'm happy with the Yuji x Shana moments in the giant tomogara. They worked together and showed trust in each other. This is how I want them to be.

Konoe is still alive in Hecate and she spared Yuji several times throughout the last 2 episodes. I'm a bit upset how they used the Silver, but I guess that there was no avoiding it anymore.

The ending felt rushed though. Some things aren't cleared up at all. How did Wilhelmina fare after Shana went inside the giant? Is the silver still alive? Margery's reaction to yuji x shana fighting/defeating the silver? This episode should have had two episodes to make it so much better.

It is hinted that he chooses Shana in the end, but I have my doubts. The final scene where you see Yuji's footprints ending in the snow where it gets very dark seems foreboding and combine that with what he's saying...

Cliffhanger ending. I smell a third season coming.

Naw! That's TRILL! lol j/k I can see why they used it. It's like JOINT, but injected with the feeling of hope.

Why are almost all Mami Kawada's songs all named with english words that seem cool?._.

I don't think you should hate on JCSTAFF and place it in the same league as some other bad studio with even worse reps such as GONZO or DEEN...They made the safe choice by avoiding using novel material. I would have cried if it ended cliffhanger than the open ending we got.
