Shakugan no SHANA II — 01

Time to offi­cial­ly “restart” blog­ging with Shana. [/lol]

OP:

Joint” by Mami Kawa­da [watch]

ED:

tri­an­gle” by Mami Kawa­da [watch]

Both songs rock, in my opin­ion. The open­ing was very upbeat and got me absolute­ly excit­ed about watch­ing it. [/opinionshouldnotbetakenseriouslycausehe’sanI’veSoundsfanboy]

The first episode of the sec­ond series starts off with the famil­iar nar­ra­tive dia­logue we’ve heard before in the begin­ning of the first episode of the orig­i­nal series, along with strange reap­pear­ances of Guze no Tomog­a­ra, that were already killed, in the same man­ner that they first appeared, with only Yuji notic­ing the strange déjà vu around him. Turns out he was stuck in a tran­sient dream caused by a mys­te­ri­ous, and appar­ent­ly “weak” Tomog­a­ra. Shana seem­ing­ly kills her at the end of the episode. Seems like Yuji for­got what Shana said back at the Seirei-den. 😉 (“I love you Yuji”) C’mon Yuji! You’re one of the more com­pe­tent char­ac­ters that’s voiced by Satoshi Hino! It’s pret­ty hilar­i­ous how you’re that obliv­i­ous to what’s obvi­ous­ly going on right in front of your eyes.

Any­ways, I enjoyed it but it was­n’t all that excit­ing apart from (sad­ly) the opening/ending and Shana’s “URUSAI URUSAI URUSAI!”. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the ani­ma­ton was­n’t as good as it should’ve been. Seems like it’ll pick up dur­ing the next episode though (the back­ground music for the pre­view rocks my socks). (:

  1. Ori­on: Agreed. The new eye­catch just does­n’t give me the same vibe as the old one (the back­ground music was bet­ter than the new one for one, in my opin­ion)..
    AS: I’m sur­prised that they did­n’t reuse some old scenes. Props to J.C.Staff for rean­i­mat­ing them!
