Synopsis: A manga series by Ayato Sasakura based on the light novels by Yashichiro Takahashi.

This was one the best series that I have watched and only knew about the novel at the time. I was surprised that there was a manga for this and picked it up. I loved the artwork and the story caught my attention from the beginning. I really liked and highly recommend it if you find a good price for it. I got lucky I found mine at discount and was very happy about it.
Shakugan no Shana is about a boy by the name of Yuji Sakai, who finds out he is already dead. He is the remnants of the real Yuji Sakai, a Torch. His Torch, however, hasn't burned out yet because of the rare treasure tool deep inside him, called Reiji Maigo. Before all this happens, a girl names Shana pops into his life. Now Shana must fight to protect the Mistes from Crimson Denizens, trying to taking the treasure tool within Yuji!
This series is so much fun. Im definitely going to buy the rest of the manga and watch the anime~!
