Sakai Yuji thought he was an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent... until time stopped one day and everyone around him was turned into light and consumed by a huge monster, right before his eyes. He was saved by a girl with long red hair who drove the monster off with [[FlamingSword sword and flame]]. "[[TomatoInTheMirror You don't exist anymore]]", she told him.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulRename: The otherwise nameless "Hunter with Fiery Hair and Blazing Eyes" (''Enpatsu Shakugan no Uchite'') is soon given the nickname of "Shana" by Yuji, which leads to her developing conflicted feelings about [[EmotionsVsStoicism whether she's a warrior or a person]]. Near the end of the story, when she finally comes to terms with herself as both at once, she introduces herself as "Shana of the Fiery Hair and Blazing Eyes" (''Enpatsu [[TitleDrop Shakugan no Shana]]'').

* SplitPersonalityTakeover: [[spoiler: Averted. While it seems that way early on, the Snake only ever comes out to talk with the rest of Bal Masque. Yuji's the one doing all the fighting]]

* BittersweetEnding: The ending a whole is too happy to be this entry, considering that [[spoiler: Shana and Yuji [[TheyDo end up romantically involved]], the ForeverWar is ended and countless future generations of humans and Denizens are spared, Flame Hazes can pursue lives beyond that of revenge-driven soldiers, and all of Misaki City's devoured humans are resurrected.]] There are still elements of this type of ending, though. [[spoiler: Thousands of Flame Hazes are killed in the conflict, most notably Khamsin. By merging with the Snake of the Festival, Yuji's "previous" existence was displaced, so those LockedOutOfTheLoop no longer know he exists, including his friend Matake Ogata, best friend Ike, and his own parents, who are raising his sister as their only child. In addition, Kazumi, Eita, Keisaku, Margery, and Marchosias will never see Shana or Yuji again, as the entrance to Xanadu has disappeared. The Crimson Lords contracted to Flame Hazes still on Earth are incapable of returning to the Crimson Realm, as Xanadu now occupies the space through which they traveled from the Crimson Realm to Earth. Finally, there is no Misaki City for Shana and Yuji in Xanadu, which is otherwise a perfect replica of Earth.]]

* CommonKnowledge: Shana is the prototypical hyper-aggressive, ultra-violent {{Tsundere}} who habitually dominates and abuses her love interest. Except she’s not. While Shana introduced, [[TropeCodifier or at least codified]], a type of {{Tsundere}} that is more hot-tempered and more abrasive to her love interest, and while the hyper-aggressive, ultra-violent {{Tsundere}} can [[ShanaClone claim a direct line of descent from Shana]], she lacks the borderline abusive behavior (at worst striking Yuji all of three times in the first season-- of a three-season show—in moments that are played for laughs), tendency to treat their love interests in a subhuman fashion (Shana’s early dismissal of Yuji as a “thing” is due to the fact that, ordinarily, he would be little more than a non-entity as a Torch), and the tendency to dominate or tyrannize said love interests that they have. Shana actually is closer to the classic {{Tsundere}}, a person with harsh outward personality, the result of a sociability problem, who gradually reveals a softer and loving side. Her CharacterDevelopment is really quite remarkable, even when comparing the cold and hostile Shana at the beginning of Season 1 to prickly but friendly Shana of mid-Season 1, let alone the Shana of Season 3, who can no longer even be considered {{Tsundere}}.
