The Second Time (再びの刻 Futatabi no Koku?) is the first episode of the anime series Shakugan no Shana Second. Yuji experiences events that eerily resemble those that already happened in the past - only to realize that it was all a dream when he and Shana encounter a weak Crimson Denizen.


In a random encounter, Mare surprises Yuji and Shana by appearing despite her rather little existence and entraps Yuji in her Gemeinde (where Yuji was put to sleep) and makes him encounters events from the past in his dream. He later manages to "wake up" from her Unrestricted Spell and broke the spell when he realize that he was only dreaming and he awoke to see Shana finally ends the fight by defeating and slashes Mare, calling her weak. However, it was not the true form, it is just a Mystes that is used by Mare.
