Shakugan no Shana Watch Order Guide

As with most school-action romance anime, one’s engagement with the series depends entirely on whether the anime resonates with your taste or not. Shakugan no Shana is just another anime with this very same genre combination with a basic shounen plot. Although cliche and the execution are not smart or clean, Shakugan no Shana fits the mood of the genre it is tapping in.

Shakugan no Shana has a predictable plot, just like other anime of its kind. Also, the overused cliche and the typical characters trope are there too, but balanced and engaging battles, plot armors used sparingly somehow make the show’s premise believable, and many other aspects are well presented.

Anyone who engages in comedy, action romance anime will definitely appreciate this anime. If you are planning to watch Shakugan no Shana, watch it according to this order.

Shakugan no Shana is a supernatural action romance anime series animated by Studio J.C.Staff. The anime is an adaptation of a popular Japanese light novel series written by Yashichiro Takahashi.

Synopsis: Crimson Denizens are unknown beings that live along with humans in a parallel universe known as The Crimson Realm. These Crimson Denizens can manipulate the Power of Existence that lets them use the life force of other beings as fuel for their own. To maintain the balance between both worlds, Flame Hazes have been appointed by the Crimson Lord.

The story follows Sakai Yuji, a high school student whose only wish is to live a peaceful life. But one day, while walking back home, he found himself in a conflict between the Crimson Realm’s Denizen. Amid the conflicts, he was saved by a Flame Haze named Shana, a red-haired girl wielding a katana, who reveals that he’s been dead for some time and is now a Torch, a human with low Power of Existence.
