Shakugan no Shana: Season 1

 (TV) (2005-2006)

Shakugan no Shana: Season 1 Blu-ray features poor video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Yuji Sakai is about to learn that there is more to the world than going to school and finding a girlfriend when he meets a sword-wielding girl with fiery red eyes and flame colored hair. Denizens of the Crimson Realm are invading our world and it's up to the Flame Haze, Shana to slay them. However, when Yuji gets in the way of her sword, he learns that death is much more different than he imagined it would be. Experience their harrowing story as Yuji and Shana work together to fight the Denizens of the Crimson World and learn more about each other and the worlds they are from.

Shakugan no Shana: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

FUNimation's packaging on this first season of Shakugan no Shana states that this features an HD native source, but this AVC encoded 1080p transfer looks much more like an upconversion to me (I have a message into my contacts at FUNimation, and will update this review as more information is received, but for the time being I'm trusting my gut and have set the specs to indicate this is an upconversion). Line detail is okay, but not excessively sharp, but the entire enterprise just has that slightly soft and blurry look that indicates an SD native upconversion. There are also numerous problems throughout this presentation, including some of the most pervasive banding I personally can remember having seen. The best elements here are the CGI sequences which kick in when the supernatural elements (and battle scenes) are under way. As with so many anime, we get big swirling magical rings with occult glyphs all over them (see screencap 3 for a good example), and those tend to look a good deal sharper than the more traditional cel animation elements. Character designs are pretty standard here, and in fact the better character designs tend to be the bad guys, including huge "Stay-Puft babies" (you'll know what I mean if you watch the series, but see screencap 2 for a little preview) and menacing doll like creatures.


Shakugan no Shana: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shakugan no Shana features Dolby TrueHD 2.0 mixes in both the original Japanese language as well as an English dub. Unlike a lot of recent anime releases (frankly not always on FUNimation), however, the mixes here are virtually identical, with no amplitude difference between the two, and only the voice work (and of course the language) differentiating them. The Japanese voice track is a tad more "delicate", for want of a better term, with a somehow less urgent feeling in the delivery. The English voice cast, perhaps a little surprisingly actually the Universal Geneon dub and not the FUNimation one, is very good to excellent, though Kristian Ayre's Yuji seems a little low key at times, especially with regard to the frequent voice over narration. Fidelity is excellent on both of these tracks, and dynamic range is also quite wide.
