Crimson Thoughts (紅蓮の想い Guren no Omoi?) is the twenty-fourth and final episode of the anime series Shakugan no Shana.


After managing to defeat Hecate, the city is about to be destroyed regardless. However, there is one final plan that is to summon Alastor, though Shana's life may be on the line if it succeeds. Thinking that she will die, Shana then confesses her love to Yuji, which he did not hear but caught shape of her mouth saying it. In the end, they both survive and return to Misaki City.
