Many spend their lives looking for a raison d'être, a purpose to their existence. But the girl known as the Slayer with Flaming Hair and Blaze-Red Eyes understood her purpose all along: to protect the balance of this world and cut down anything threatening it. To achieve this, Shana was ready to throw away everything unnecessary, including her own feelings and dreams.
Indeed, she grew stronger. The tales of her power struck fear in the hearts of her enemies. But little did she know that the last enemy awaiting her at the end of her journey would be herself. Sweet food brings a smile to her face, the desire for family warmth hunts her on lonely nights, and an encounter with an extraordinary boy makes her heart beat just a bit faster... Shana believes all of those emotions can only dull her blade. But no matter how many times she tries to cut through them, they only return with more force. If she truly desires to find strength, Shana must learn how to see through her own self-deception and accept herself for who she really is.
On a different note, Shana's devotion to the path of the warrior means she had little opportunity to try her hand at many much more mundane activities of contemporary life. Her disastrous confrontations with school, modern kitchen appliances and lunchboxes are a sight to behold.
