Sakai Yuuji, a high school student who expected his normal life to last forever, is dead. When he was on his way home he witnessed a shocking view as the world suddenly froze: people were engulfed by blue flames and a monster resembling a large doll swallowed them. Just as the monster prepared to consume Yuuji, a sword-wielding girl in black attire with flaming red eyes and hair that burns like embers saved him from the monster. The girl called herself a "Flame Haze" who hunts the "Guze no Tomogara", creatures from another world. As Yuuji noticed a blue flame in his chest, she called him a "Torch", a temporary replacement, saying that the "real" Yuuji's existence had already ended. Unfazed, Yuuji befriended the strange girl, named her "Shana", and joined her fight against Tomogara and other Flame Hazes.

Since this series is licenced, the first season is not on CR. Instead, as with all animes that are not on CR due to licencing, you can go to Veoh.com and watch it there.

Shakugan no Shana is a well written, well thought out story that leaves you suprised and ready for more after every episode. The music blends well with the story and events of the time and the animation is on a good level. With a fairly original feel to it, unlike a lot of other animes, this series' second season (airing right now) picks up right where the first left off without dropping in quality; instead, only enhancing the plot further while raising many new questions. However more on the serious side, it yet still has a bit of comedy at times and is easy to get into from the very first episode.

I agree that the first season was awesome, but the second one (altough it starts ok) gets a little draggy in the middle.

Pretty good anime,on all counts.Nice plot,beautiful art and awesome music,what more could somebody want? But for some reason,SNS just doesn't attract me that much.Shana,as always like those portrayed by Rie Kugimiya,is just too tsundere for my tastes.

I agree, I loved the first season but the second one was different and confusing, there are only a few eps left so I hope it gets better and the ending would be good.

Well, the second season is finally over. The ending was really rushed in my opinion, however, at least there is going to be a season three! Or, at least thats what the rumors say.

alright, THIS one of my most fav. series of all time. shana is awesome, she can kick my hairy a$$ anytime she wants, and shouts "shut up x3" right into my eardrums anytime she wants and pluck my hair anytime she sits on top of my head anytime she feels like. i dont really understand myself, but i got the title of "lolicon" from my friends from liking this series, which is not true. i like shana not just because of her loli appearance, but her personality, and her role as a tragic heroine.

but the artwork from the first season is what i thought still better then the 2nd season, though the 2nd season had more better finishing and so on. and the storyline from the 1st season is more deep and harder to digest compared the 2nd season. i just knew that shakugan no shana actually came from a series of novel, and the according to some blog that i visit the novels itself is almost finished *stopped myself since it going to be a spoiler*

and IF there will be a 3rd season, a lot of people argues that this will be the "season finale" since the fast improvement in the 2nd season is actually fast forwarded to almost the end of the whole series. and most likely 3rd season wont come true until the novel itself finishes "crosses finger for shana so she didnt have to die, let yoshida died instead"
