Shakugan no Shana 2: Fuzetsu

Shakugan no Shana really badly fails the refrigerator test. For instance:

Inside a fuzetsu time is stopped. So how can it become midnight, the moment when the reiji maigo does its legendary thing? Either it is midnight when the fuzetsu is created, or it isn't, but time doesn't change.

When I watched it before, I brought up a different problem with the fuzetsu: if it's a bubble in time, and if time is stopped inside and outside of it, then how can anyone outside, even with magical power, enter it? For those not inside of it, it only exists for the briefest instant no matter how much time passes inside of it for those who have the ability to not be frozen when inside.

But that isn't what really annoys me most about this. It's too angsty, damn it! For crying out loud!

It will be interesting to see whether the second season redeems the series, or plunges it deeper into the angst swamp. I'm afraid I expect the latter, not the former.
