Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Hecate is the most popular of the main antagonists. Many were initially drawn in by her cute character design but eventually warmed up to her in season 2 where as Konoe Fumina she begins to develop human-like emotions
** Sabrac is also one of the more popular antagonists despite not having been introduced until the end of season 2. He is mostly remembered by viewers for his memorable battle, and many can back him up as the most {{Badass}} antagonist in the series. There's also the fact that unlike other villains he had a backstory to his motivations and even a rivalry with one of the main characters.
** Decarabia one of the minor villains introduced in season 3 got a lot of attention. Many were amused by his strange character design and his tendency to constantly appear at the most random of times.


Added DiffLines:

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. Both are light novels published by Dengeki-Bunko that got published around the same time and have the similar concept of magic in a modern day setting, alongside a male protagonist who is partnered with a hot-headed female lead. It also helps that the anime for ''Index'' aired at the height of ''Shakugan no Shana's'' popularity and even featured many similar cast members.


Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: For a lot of viewers the first season was well-received and thought of as a great start to the franchise. However, many felt that as the show went on it got progressively worse. Season 2 was criticized for beginning on a filler arc that lasted half the season, and not doing much to differentiate itself from season 1. It was the third season where many felt that ''Shakugan no Shana'' began to lose its touch. Many criticisms were aimed at [[spoiler: Yuji fusing with the Snake of the Festival]], the introduction of many new characters that had no development and added nothing to the show with some [[spoiler: dying in their first fight scenes]] and the IdiotPlot involved in the final battle.

* 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}}.

* LesYay: Wilhelmina and Pheles are really good friends, but the way Wilhelmina acts when they meet is just a trace beyond that (and Wilhelmina [[TheStoic doesn't emote much towards anyone]]).

*** The problem stems a lot from the anime adaptation. Yuji expresses despair over the endless, ultimately nihilistic Flame Haze-Denizen struggle very early in the light novels, as well as a growing determination to do whatever it takes to end it. The Snake of the Festival, who shows up out of nowhere with no foreshadowing or buildup at the beginning of ''Shakugan no Shana Final'', approaches Yuji from within the Midnight Lost Child [[WeCanRuleTogether and tempts him with promises of ending the eternal conflict]]. He also starts to exhibit a much more aggressive personality far sooner as well. For example, in the anime, when Wilhelmina attempts to kill him to prevent the Midnight Lost Child from falling into Bal Masqué's hands, Yuji does little to fight back. In the light novels, after Shana prevents Wilhelmina from harming him, Yuji takes the opportunity to ''try to kill Wilhelmina'', and comes close to doing so. In short, Yuji's FaceHeelTurn, for a given value of heel, is not the abrupt switch the anime made it out to be, but a well-telegraphed and logical conclusion to his character growth.
