amazing!!
9 August 2008 | by Samuel OrozcoSee all my reviews

Shakugan no shana, also called Shana of the burning eyes, is basically the story of Sakai Yuuji, a normal high school boy who discovers he is dead and that he is in fact a torch after being attacked by a monster and saved by Shana, a young girl of red hear and burning eyes who calls herself as Flame Haze.(you will be explained what a torch and flame haze is when you watch it). Shana and yuuji become.. how should I say it??.. companions/friends/lovers, and fight these monsters to save the city.

It is a really light series, no gore or anything like that. I found the openings superb but I have seen better animations and I got bored during a couple of chapters. HOWEVER, Its just so fulfilling and you feel so so so great when you watch it that it deserves a 9! There a very few series that have made me feel so happy.. I really don't know how to explain it, it has this romantic feeling(like kanon 2006) that makes you very fond of Shana. You just end up loving her.

In my opinion: one of the best pieces of animation I've seen

I really recommend this to everyone, It is very good!! In fact, it is so good that I don't know if I should watch Shakugan no Shana Second (I'm afraid I could get disappointed because it is really hard to beat the first one). Update: I finished the second one, ITS JUST AS GOOD
