BLAZE – Shakugan no Shana II Opening Soundtrack
by KOTOKO – translated by SS-Eclipse Subs
No day fails to meet the dawn.
Even if the darkness heartlessly takes over the world,
sweep it away while It’s still incomplete.
No day fails to meet the dusk.
Even if you ponder the absurdity you’ve experienced,
The Blaze inside your heart you hold so tight doesn’t seem to fade away.
Because I have faith in the one and only strength in this ever-changing world.
I choose to live in it. I’ll leap over that wall.
Since we who are wise,
say goodbye to a comfortable daily life
and go search for meaning behind all that transpires.
There is a long journey ahead!
So swear to other that stand against the time that sleeps at the swaying blue sky’s end
and continue forward.
I always found Kotoko’s song interesting and the lyric is simple yet meaningful~ I will also put the Hayate no Gotoku OP later and you can see what I mean. BTW since the single haven’t comes out yet usually there could be a bit mis-translation but you still get the whole point.
And after pick up some pace this episode is back to slow mode, though for Yuji he made some improvement on his skill but total degradation in attitude. But this episode remind me how adorable Shana can be~<3
Shakugan no Shana – episode 18: Bafled Yuji
The story begin with the mysterious tomogara Collation Flux, Zarovee, which appear holding meeting with another tomogara Boasters, Bifrons to execute some plan.
What would they up to? You’ll know soon~
While Yuji manage to convince Margerie to train him to cast spell with his own flame, and looks like Yuji manage to done it rather well. But Shana keep concern, and Margerie start to notice too that there is something different, something bothering him. This time Yuji is really cold, unlike the first season’s “peace loving idiot” and cheerful but positive thinker~ now he’s cold like a cyborg.
He’s got spell…
He’s got sword…
…and now he’s also gotten cold as the Terminator.
After Yuji get home looks like Chhigusa-san, Yuji’s mother fell ill, so the next day Yuji skipped schools. Her sickness make Shana worries and she ran over to her house right after the school ends. And this part is~ 😀 kawaiii~ while Shana and Chigus talks, Shana is sooo~ looks like adorable little girl with her mom~ simile and act cutesy 😄 which is different then her usual serious face or fierce like while facing a tomogara.
As if one girl not enough (rawr~! *chanting “ImNotJealous~ImNotJealous~ImNotJealous~ “* x10) Yoshida also came and brought dinner for him~ Poor girl~ T__T realize it girl, Pheles just try to trick you. But Yuji since the festival incident has ben scared, I think~ so she try to hush away her when she also brought something for breakfast. But he reasons just because she is no longer human and all~ and also because his existence gonna draw more enemies (well yeah which tomogara doesn’t want a unlimited flame source~?) but that got her a bit angry, and so do Shana who over heard their conversation.
Now he got her mad~ Baka Yuji~
And while the three of them are confused~ Zarovee appear in front of Yuji~ and to be continued… bah~! T__T
We got you now, kukuku~
So there’s also no action this week, but there are some development to the characters.
