The Facts are These:
Yuuji Sakai was attacked by Denizens, now he has become a Blaze and entity the will die out soon. He was saved by a girl with crimson hair named Shana. In the moments before he is supposed to fade his fire reignites. What is special about Yuuji Sakai and what do the Denizens want with him.
Shakugan no Shana is just okay. That is all I can really say, it is average in the sense that it did not affect me. Everything was average, the characters, setting, plot all of it was average. The concept of Torches, people who disappear from existence was a neat idea, but it was not used to its full potential. I feel that there should have been more focus on Torches then the Denizens. I know that you can’t have one without the other, but if there was more focus on the torches this may have been a considerably better anime.
Behind the Scenes:

A Brief View of the World:
This world has been attacked by beings known as Denizens. These beings feast on humans and when they are done, that person dies. With the help of the Girl Shana she corrects the world by giving them temporary life. Other than that the world is pretty normal and it is just the same old Japan.
The series is average and okay. I don’t know about the other seasons of the show, but they would have to be better than this for it to continue. I felt this season was the base of the show, setting everything up for a more dynamic series to be presented. I hope these guesses are justified.
The series is not rewatchable, it is just average and that there would not be anything to gain from watching it again. The only reason to rewatch it would be to refresh yourself on the setting of the show.
Toradora – For an great romance series that I find more enjoyable than this.
Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks – For an enthralling and romantic supernatual series.
